allright, looks like it's been some time that I posted a chit chat journal, but today when I saw my message board, I read a journal that makes me quite intrigued
you know, I was a member from a group named
, and probably some of you guys already know that standard on that group is quite high, for my experience, at first some of my works that I submitted there was rejected, and now almost all of my works that I submitted there was rejected
So i think: what the heck, probably my skill has worsen and their standard has becoming more and more high,
this also come into my mind, what is the purpose for group here at deviantart?
I mean if the group is becoming a showcase for some already known artists, the artist him/herself is not really in need for extra promotion, or, do they still need that?
or is a group is a chance for us, some struggling and upcoming artists to be more known to the community?
but whatever it is, I have stop submitting my arts to that group, and to my surprise, some other artists also have the same issue with me, this is what happened:
one or probably some of the moderators of #digital-artists are also moderating another group, and when they wanted to make the standard level on that group more higher, some artists giving their concern that the standard will be at the same level as digital-artist's one
whoa, looks like I'm not the only one here who has that kind of feeling
annd, today, digital-artists post a journal, saying that their will kinda downgrade their standard, and reading from the comments on their journal, it probably because lots of complains, and also they were being judge as an "elitist group", and one of their resolution is, they gonna make a sister group, that is indeed has a high standard on the gallery submission, I think, whaat, It's like kinda: "abandon ship! But we are going to aboard another ship that, yeah, kinda similar to the previous ship, but with new jolly rogers flag design"
It's kinda a mix bag feeling to me for that kind of decision, I mean, yeah do I like some group swarming my message board with their artwork submission? Not really, and personally, I don't expect to get rejected every time
I submitted an artwork to some groups, hey, ain't art is a subjective matter? So I deduced that groups that always rejected my works probably has a different taste with me
I don't mind having some high standard to elitist group here on deviantart, but I'm not supporting every
group to have that kind of regulation, that will makes us, artists-in-progress, or in struggle, lose our chances to becoming more known to the community, and hey, if someday I got on one level on this art business, I don't mind step aside and giving other artists a chance to shine.
to all kind of groups, keep your house regulation, let people come and go as they like, but don't make other groups forced to adapt your regulation
