Hello everyone and welcome to BeginnersUnite!
Happy New Year!!


To celebrate the new year, we would like to see your progress! We will hold a before & after contest. You can use the before and after meme Character Development Meme by Kamakru found at… . Submit to the Current Contest folder. Entries are unlimited. You can enter as many times as you’d like. I will judge based on your progress, not by who has the best art. The newer drawing cannot go any earlier than December 1, 2014.
Prize is 50 :points: for the winner, 25 :points: for 2nd, 10 :points: for 3rd.

Our icon contest has ended.


This month we will be taking a break from our MotM to send out a special thank you to those who participated in the treasure hunt.

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.

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
