:bulletgreen: There is now a submission limit of 3 deviations a week. This is to ensure that member’s inboxes do not get flooded, and that each piece submitted gets the attention it deserves.

:bulletgreen: Everyone is encouraged to view and comment on the submissions. Even if you know nothing about a specific craft, artists and craftsmen appreciate feedback. If nothing else, say what you like about a specific piece.

:bulletgreen: Deviations in the Featured folder will often be changed, in order to keep things fresh, and give each piece an opportunity in the spotlight.

Hey everybody.  I wanted to make a quick info post about submitting art, and art that gets accepted or rejected.

Most of the art that you all submit gets accepted.  The only criteria (at least for me, I can't speak for the other reviewers) that matters is (A) whether it is submitted to the right folder, and (B) whether the art is in some way "Celtic."  It doesn't even necessarily have to be good (though I like it when it is!).

Celtic art and culture is a big category of things, and encompasses a lot of styles, symbols, etc.  Having done a lot of Celtic art and research on Celtic history, I'm pretty good at recognizing what is and isn't Celtic, and as a reviewer, the most common reason I reject a submission is because it's actually not Celtic - usually, it's Norse/Scandinavian, which *is a different thing.*

HOWEVER.  It's not up to me to make the final decision about what "Celtic" means, and I recognize that Celtic art takes influences from a broad variety of styles.  Basically the way I review things, if someone submits something that doesn't look Celtic, doesn't say it's Celtic-inspired somewhere in the title or description, and especially if that piece is obviously from a different cultural-artistic tradition, I reject it.  But if it's kind of Celticish, and especially if the person refers to it as Celtic in the title or description, I let it through.  I know a lot about Celtic art, but I can't claim authority over the definition of the term, so if the submitting artist thinks it qualifies (and doesn't seem to be just submitting it randomly to whatever group he/she can find), I'm in no position to contradict that.

Moral of the story: If you submit art to this group, it should be Celtic in some way.  If that way isn't obvious, you should make sure to note in the title or description that it is Celtic-influenced, and if possible, explain how.  That way you can make sure that it will get accepted - at least if I'm the one reviewing it.

Cheers!  Keep making cool art!

Hi there,
I need a little bit of help...
I want a Celtic/knotted ram head as a tattoo. But I just can't think of a good design x.x
I would be glad if anyone of you could make a knotted ram head, could be even a rough scetch. It would help me a lot!
