Hello Everyone and Welcome to BeginnersUnite! We're glad you decided to join us!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask the founders and admin.



:bulletblue: Please remember to submit to the correct folders. Just because the Featured folder is open doesn't mean everything will be accepted to it.
:bulletblue: We still do not accept mature content.
:bulletblue: Check out Tutorials-R-Us. Even though we have tutorials here, Tutorials-R-Us has them broken down based on what you're looking for (i.e. tutorials for eyes, hair, face, anatomy, photomanipulations, literature, backgrounds and objects, and so on...). You don't have to be a member of the group to submit a tutorial so if you have tutorials, please feel free to submit them.



Congratulations petrexkgb :iconpetrexkgb:

1. We would love to thank you for joining BeginnersUnite! What is your favorite thing about us?
What I find the most interesting is the emphasis this group has on the "little guys" here on dA, myself included. There are so many groups where only the most uber-detailed make the cut that it's nice to see a more vast group where we can be ourselves, not so focused on our shortcomings as artists.

2. What is your favorite thing about deviantArt?
DeviantArt is an amazing place to be. Not only does it have a very large and welcoming community, in here we can show our pieces without the fear of bragging, and maybe even make a career out of what we love to do: create art.

3. What would you describe your art style as?
Plainly messy xD

4. What programs/tools do you use to create your art?
I used to work with Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, and even though it was a great starting point, Photoshop is vastly superior in almost every category, with the exception of ease of use. So, if the UI of Photoshop scares you like it did me, just power through it :)

5. Where would you like to improve the most (if you need to improve)?
I need (and will) improve everywhere, but female faces really are my weakest spot. Only rarely did I get something like that right, but with practice comes perfect xD

6. What is your favorite type of art?
I am starting to appreciate more abstract art, especially because I've no clue on how that damned thing is done.

7. How long have you been drawing?
For quite some time, but I deciced to take things a lot more seriously about 4 years ago.

8. Can you show us 2 of your most improved deviations and one of your older deviations?
These ones-
Stroll through the mountainide! by petrexkgb Just a dream? by petrexkgb
Simply because it was with these ones that I realised that the more time I take with things, the more detailed and refined they become.

Eye in Infinite Painter by petrexkgb
This one was back when I was still painting on my phone, couldn't even figure out how to flip it... It was that bad xD

9. Who is your favorite artist?
By far, Stjepan Sejic. Sunstone is still the best comic I've read, and you can read it here on

10. What kind of artist do you want to be (if any)?
Just a happy one, who can tell interesting stories that move people. If I help people with the content I make, then I'll fulfil my life's goal.

11. Where would you wish to study art (country)?
My own, Portugal. Nasci Português, hei-de morrer Português! xD

12. Do you have any thing you would like to say to fellow artists?
Never, ever, give up. We can never know what the future will bring, but if we give up we know for sure that nothing good can come out of that. Push through the difficulties, we all know you can do it.

Thanks so much everyone for sharing your talent with us. Have a great weekend (or week depending on when you're reading this)!

Welcome to BeginnersUnite! I'm glad to have you here :icongrin--plz:
Even though this group is geared more towards beginners and helping us grow, we will gladly accept anyone who would like to join!

Thank you! by ayame18 Thank you to all of you who allow us to use your wonderful tutorials!

1. Be respectful: If you don't like something don't look, there is no need for you to be rude to other artists.

2. No Mature Content: As you all know, we no longer accept mature content. This includes excessive blood and gore and nudity. The only nudity allowed is in our anatomy section, if it's not an anatomy lesson or reference then it's not permitted in the group.

3. No BASE Art: This group is all about bettering your art skill so from now on, we do not allow base art. Try taking a look at our anatomy folder or ask any of the contributors if you need help with anatomy.

:new:4. No Advertising on the Main Page: I have been noticing this popping up lately but we have several ways for you to be advertised in our group.
:pointr: Submit a journal to the journal folder
:pointr: Note the group or an admin and we will add your information to the main page where everyone can see.
Please do not advertise contests or commissions in the comments area. Comments will be hidden.

Since it's a problem we seem to constantly run into, submissions have been limited to 5 a day per folder. Please remember, we are manually accepting submissions and when you upload your entire gallery, it floods our inbox. Not to mention the inbox of watchers once they are accepted. We will always welcome your art, just be mindful that we are not robots.
