FAQs: (PLEASE READ BEFORE SUBMITTING ART or JOIN REQUEST)

:bulletblue:FAQ #1: How do I become a member?:bulletblue:

Please keep in mind that this is a Very Selective Pin-Up group. Membership is usually invite only and is restricted to those who create high quality pin-up art. If you wish to become a member please be sure to have very high quality cute/pretty pin-up art in your gallery. Please look at the group gallery, if your art is as high in quality as most of the art in the group gallery then please feel free to send a membership request. If your art isn't as high in quality as most of the art in the group gallery then please do not send membership request - I'm not a mean person, it's just that membership is restricted to those who contribute high quality pin-up art to the group gallery. I try to keep high quality standards in the art and membership.

:bulletblue:FAQ #2: Why was my art declined?:bulletblue:

Your art must meet the rules and requirements. As for rules we have three main rules:

1) No frontal nudity
2) No large watermarks
3) Accepted image(s) must reach the quality control standards


I try to only accept the best pin-up art. Sometimes images are accepted that aren’t quite the best, but for the most part I do try to only accept high quality pin-up art. Even if you’re a great artist and your submitted image is very professional and cool, sometimes the images aren't quite right for the group gallery, and they get declined. The images not only should to be high quality in production, but have that "it factor" that makes the image extra pretty or cute. It makes some people upset and angry when their art is declined, but it's not meant to be an insult or hurtful. My aim is to try to only to feature the highest quality pin-ups that are also pretty, sexy, and cute. I'm just one person and one opinion; please don't take it personally as to be offended or hurt by it if your work is turned down for gallery submission. :hug:

If you feel your art was turned down unfairly and that your art is as good as the majority of the art in the group gallery, please keep in mind that a gallery rejection is just one person's lousy opinion. Your art may be amazing, but I'm only human and as such I'm subject to my own preferences and tastes. If your art is turned down, please don't let it upset you. It's only the opinion of one, very fallible, person.

For those artists not selected for membership or gallery submission, please feel free to add us to your watch list and enjoy the art that has been featured in the gallery. Just because you've not been selected, doesn't mean your work isn't good. :) And if your art is already amazing, please keep in mind that art is like flavor, not everything is going to be to everyone's taste. Just because it may not be "my cup of tea" doesn't mean that it's not wonderful art. I'm only human and I make mistakes. I'm also subject to my own personal tastes and preferences. A group submission rejection doesn't mean your art isn't awesome! Please don't let it upset you or discourage you. :heart:
Submissions are now open for the PrettyPin-Ups group, but please keep in mind that the group has VERY high quality standards. BEFORE submitting please read the FAQs on the front page. The majority of the images that get submitted get declined, I think that would be greatly reduced if submitters would take a couple minutes to read the FAQs on the front page. :)

I'm super picky about the group gallery, so please don't be offended if I don't approve what you submit. I don't even consider any of my own drawings good enough for the group gallery. Even if you’re a great artist and your submitted image is very professional and cool, sometimes the images aren't quite right for the group gallery, and they get declined. The images not only need to be very high quality in production, but have that "it factor" that makes the image extra pretty or cute. It makes a lot of people upset and angry when their art is declined, but it's not meant to be an insult or hurtful. My aim is only to feature the highest quality pin-ups that are also pretty, sexy, and cute. I'm just one person and one opinion; please don't take it personally as to be offended or hurt by it if your work is turned down for gallery submission. :hug:

Thank you to all the watchers and members of this group! It's my hope that PrettyPin-Ups someday becomes one of the best pin-up groups here on DA. :rose:

I start a digital life drawing class tomorrow. I'm hoping that well help me to grasp anatomy, lighting, and more dynamic posing that still look normal.

For sure! Also using reference images helps with anatomy and lighting, as well. :D I know a lot of pro pencilers that use reference images, so it's nothing to be ashamed of. :)
