Over the last week and a half, the administrators have discussed, addressed, and argued over the rules Arts-Shadow should use.

As a tentative list that is subject to change the rules read as following:

:bulletblack: Submissions are limited to fourteen times a week.

:bulletblue: Deviations submitted to the featured folder are subjected to a 3-person vote decided by the administrators.

:bulletred: The group has decided to continue with the weekly prompts as long as members are submitting, if less than three members submit for more than three weeks in row, the idea will be taken into to consideration for removal.

:bulletpurple: The critique folder is now open, however it is considered part of the daily limit and as such can only have two submissions per deviant per day. There is also a need for more people on the critique team, if interested send a note to LightOverpowers58, the team leader.

:bulletorange: There is absolutely no hentai, porn, smut related material allowed in this group. However, mature deviations will be taken into consideration if they do not involve the restrictions mentioned above.

:bulletpink: The members of Arts-Shadow are highly appreciated and the adminstrators all wish you the best of luck.

The administrators to note if you have any questions, comments, or concerns are primarily TheAmericanRealist and LightOverpowers58 however, all of them are available, just allow time for a suitable reply and they will answer any questions shortly.
And you must obey your king. Mwhahahahahahahahahahaa

guys i'm so sorry if your submissions haven't been getting accepted but my computer crashed. I'm at the library right now, and my computers in repairs. I'll be switching back to auto acceptance until its fixed . SORRRRRRRRRRRY TT.TT

Andrea1981G is this month's feature and this groups first feature. Andrea1981G is fractal artwork designer who was just joined Deviantart within the last year. All her pieces have subtle beauty that can only be created by her and she deserves to be noticed. She is diligent submitter to the group and has made hundreds of beautiful pieces. Here are a few examples to get you interested:

impressive glass earth by Andrea1981G floor with colourful lights by Andrea1981G colourful snowflake by Andrea1981G plates with black rings by Andrea1981G fantasy bluebrown place by Andrea1981G

And besides  showcasing beautiful artwork ,we also interviewed her for the group feature

1. What kind of art do you usually do? What medium/computer program do you use for it?
I like to create fractals, because it makes a lot of fun. I use Jwildfire at the moment .

2. How long have you been doing fractal artworks?
I began to create them on August 2010, my frist program was Mandelbulber at this time.

3. Who or what started your artistry and why?
I have searched on google for 3D fractals, I found them at this time interesting, so I have interest to try it out too.

4. How do you find inspiration when you work?
At the moment I like the colourful shiny fractals from JWildfire very much, it is very interesting to find new forms and play around with the different formulas, so I can't stop doing them sometimes

5. Do you consider your craft difficult? If so, what makes it hard?
Sometimes it is difficult to find good formula combinations, but when I have find them it is easy to make lots of diffent versions from them.

6. Which artwork of yours do you consider your best and why?
I have created most Mandelbulb 3D works and since 6 month from JWildfire. The fractals from JWildfire are more fun for me, because they have so lively colors.

7. Is there someone in Deviant Art you idolize? Who is it and what is your favorite work from this artist?
I have no favorite artist, there are so many people which are making nice fractals.

8. Other than making art, what can you consider your other hobbies?
My other hobbies/interest is: collect stamps, weather, fire department, here music

This group and another that are both in my possession both are lacking in administrator so if anyone would like a position in group administrator please note me :D.

It is totally your own choice :nod: just don't do anything you feel like regretting (a very general statement I am giving... I am not forcing you into choosing a specific choice at all!) :D
