Welcome to BeginnersUnite!! Glad to have you with us!

The Before & After contest is now over! Thank you to those of you who participated.

We have a new rule--No advertising in the comments area. If you'd like to have your information featured, please note the group or any of the admin. We will put it up in the necessary areas. ALL advertising comments will be hidden.

I have created a new group called Tutorials-R-Us. It is an extension of this group. The tutorials are broken down by category so it makes it easier to find the tutorials you need. Plus, I will be working to add tutorials to that group that are not included in BeginnersUnite. To those of you who have tutorials, it is not a must that you join the group to submit your tutorials to it.

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.


:bulletblue: I (founder) have created another group called Tutorials-R-Us :icontutorials-r-us:. The group is an extension of BeginnersUnite BUT, the group only accepts tutorials and deviations showing your improvement. The group divides tutorials into categories so they're much easier to find.

:bulletblue: Any nominees for our MotM, please send the deviant's name or icon to sketch7778 by note or note the group with the reason why you would like to nominate that person. Members can nominate members but cannot nominate themselves.

:bulletblue: Critique and Corrections folders are now closed! Please take a look at ArtistsInTheMaking:iconartistsinthemaking: for critiques.

:bulletblue: -Point Commissions
:bulletpurple: -Cash Commissions
:bulletblack: -Both

Ah thank you and you are welcome!
Also for future contributing, do I just place it in digital?

Depending on the art, yes. I believe that all of the ones you submitted went into the digital folder :)
