Admins, why don't you accept my paintings to this group? I submitted two times and still they were not accepted.. So ?
lashedcheek Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2015   Traditional Artist
please be patient. we receive hundreds of submissions that we have to go through everyday and admins also have stuff to do in real life. after two weeks, should you be notified that your submission has expired, you may resubmit it again. if your deviation complies to the rules of the group, then we would definitely accept.

I accidentally submitted my picture to the Featured 2 folder! Should I submit it again in the watercolor one?
