If your art was declined, and you want to know why: please ask through LOGS, because not all admins get notes.
But first, before you ask, check this:
IF YOUR ART WAS DECLINED, YOU MUST HAVE BROKEN ONE OF THESE RULES:
Please don't send notes to admins personally. Always make sure to ask any questions in the submission's log comment box, so that we can see which deviation you're referring to and be able to assist accordingly.
Remember to submit only ONE piece per week! Yu are not able to submit more, unless you're an admin.
Be sure that you submit your art to the correct FOLDER!
If you don't know how, check out loveocs.deviantart.com/journal…. Wrong folder submissions will be DECLINED. Check twice where you are submitting, please!
Be sure that you submit artwork done in the current year ONLY!
Be sure that you are submitting your BEST art only! With quality control, I'm submitting only artwork on middle level or higher! Do not submit quick sketches or doodles, poor anatomy art, art with much noise that is not clean, art on lined paper, bad photos of art, plain sketches/lineart, etc. SUBMIT ONLY ARTWORK THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF, IS FULLY FINISHED AND SHADED AND LOOKS GOOD!
Further reading of the rules can be found here: loveocs.deviantart.com/journal…
If your deviation has been declined, one of the mods will explain why it hasn't been accepted and advise to read the rules and gallery folder descriptions before submitting. Mods are not obligated to give you full critique of your work, if it was declined for quality control reasons. If they do so, it is entirely at their discretion.
