Group Info

:bulletgreen: OVERVIEW: This group is for artists who paint with traditional media. We require submissions to have a significant amount of paint in them. Examples of traditional paint media include oil, acrylic, watercolor, egg tempera, ink, spray paint, et cetera.

:bulletblue: SUBMISSION RULES: One submission per deviant, per week. Full rules are available here. Your work must be categorized as a painting or as mixed media in deviantART's classification system (if mixed media, please indicate media used) OR if it is in another category, include media you used in your artist's comments (gouache, oil, acrylic, etc). The scan or photograph of your painting must be cropped-well and in focus (e.g. no notebook spirals to the side of the image, no blurry images). Works-in-progress are not accepted, only finished paintings. Ensure you've submitted your work to the correct folder in our gallery--read the folder guidelines if in doubt. Mature works are accepted as long as they follow deviantART guidelines.

:bulletpurple: JOIN, SUBMIT, LEAVE: If you join the group, submit your artwork, and subsequently leave the group, your deviations will be removed from our gallery.

:bulletred: OUR GROUP MISSION: We're all here to share our paintings. Haters are not welcome, only kind comments or helpful critiques. This group shows that there are still plenty of traditional media painters in a world gone digital :nod:

:iconkermityayplz::party: Thanks again you guys for helping us hit the 8,000 member mark! :party::iconkermityayplz:


:onfire: We Need More Co-Founders! :onfire:

It's the summer time, and we need some help voting in the submissions. :)

As a Co-Founder, we need you to pay attention to details and be communicative. We like to respectfully address our members during their submission process of why their piece is going to be declined (needs cropping, wrong folder, not a painting...). Mainly check in a few times a week and make sure submissions are being voted on accordingly.

If you're interested, please send me a note. I'd be happy to give better details. :)

TRADITIONAL PAINTING [PARTIAL] RULES:


*~*~*Full rules are available HERE.*~*~*

:bulletorange: Traditional Painting Mission:
    This Group is for traditional/physical painters and their work. Acrylics, oils, ink, a spray can, or any physical-type of paint is permitted upon any surface imaginable. Graffiti, traditional, window art, painted ceramics, face paint, any type of paint-based works are allowed. We look for artists who are dedicated to getting messy and putting themselves into their pieces.
 
:bulletyellow: Limit on Submissions:
    We have a 1-per-week limitation. We hope this will slow down the inbox-overload for all involved.

:bulletgreen: How To Tell Us Your Piece Is A Painting:
    Your piece needs to categorized 1 of 2 ways. 1) Submitted works should be categorized by starting with:
    Traditional > Painting > etc
    Traditional > Mixed Media > etc (with paint being 50% or more of submitted piece)
    2) If you do not have your piece Categorized as in step 1 then you MUST indicate the medium you used in your artist's comments. (i.e. watercolors, acrylic, etc)
     Why? Because if it's categorized as a drawing, looks like a drawing, and has no medium, everyone is going to assume the piece is a drawing, and it will be denied.  We want to avoid this just as much as you do, so follow the rules!

:bulletblue: Quality:
    We ask you present your paintings professionally. This means: crop photos of your canvas-paintings so that the focus is your work and not what's around it. Try to avoid flash glares/lighting in the photo of your painting (we can help you with this if you're having trouble!!!). WIPs (works in progress) are NOT allowed, so only send us the final version.

:bulletpurple: Mix Media Works:
    We are strict with mix-media paintings. The piece has to be at least 50% paint/ink applied in a painting manner and be 100% traditional. If Pastel, must be fully covered and appear as a painting (not a drawing). Editing for brightness, contrast, clean-up, etc. is not considered mixed media. Small, non-obstrusive digital frames and watermarks are allowed, as long as they follow what is listed in the "Quality" section above.  Example of a denied piece: adding a touch of watercolor to a colored pencil piece. Example of an approved piece: a rock slab with scenery painted on its surface.
 
:bulletorange: Mature Content:
    The artistic nude form is classic, so no censor bars required. However, we will be following D.A. rules about mature content,so if we ask you to add a filter, please do so if you want your piece to be accepted.  We ask ALL our members to be mature and respect other artists and their work. As the saying goes: If you don't like it, don't look at it.

Hi,

I'm trying to get into groove with painting and when I tried to buy some I realized I had no ideas which ones to get.

Can anybody tell me the difference between the different types of paints like oil, acrylic, etc.

Hello!It is a bit complicated to describe the difference in short. If you are completely new to painting, try to find some simple tutorials like these ones
