:bulletblack: Fondly named the "Up and Coming TBE Artists Gallery" :bulletblack:
This is the place where we will recognize those artists who are still growing with their art. We want to create a place for artists of all levels to share their best works!

Group MissionRules & FAQ

Welcome to

The Best Equine

TBE was created to "Recognize Phenomenal Prancers". It is our goal as a group to not only bring to you the best of equine art here on dA, but help bring attention to talented equine artists who have yet to receive much recognition for their work. As a member of our group, you are welcome to join us in our effort to uncover the hidden treasures that are just waiting to be found and marveled upon.

PROPER SUBMISSIONS - That's up to you. As you are searching through the many pages of stunning works here on dA, the ones you should choose to suggest to TBE would be the ones that you find particularly eye catching or beautiful.

Pieces that may not have the most views or the greatest number of favs, but that make you pause, think, and really look. Searching through the "most popular" section of deviant art is only scratching the surface! Keep looking until you find a new, and perhaps undiscovered gem that shines as bright or even brighter than those on the front page!

FEATURED GALLERY - About the featured section, both for favorites and submissions. It is the most exclusive section of the group. In this folder you will find deviations that we have found particularly spectacular, that made our jaws drop. Deviations that you couldn't help but stop and stare.
--- Unique colors/style/composition/medias.

FAVORITES - When I, personally, go searching for beautiful works to display in our gallery, I come across many. Some of these works cause me to ponder for a while... Should I send a request to the creator to add the piece to our gallery? There are times that I decide against it, but I feel that these artists deserve recognition as well. Our group's favorites section is fondly referred to as the "Up and Coming TBE Artist Gallery".
Members of all levels are welcome to submit here.

Thank you for reading! If you have any questions, please ask!

F R E Q U E N T L Y • A S K E D • Q U E S T I O N S

Q.Why was my request declined?
A.  It is always difficult for us at TBE to have to reject a request to our gallery. We try our best to be open to artists of different artistic/drawings styles and ideas when deciding whether to accept or decline a submission request. We want to enable all of our members to share their works with the TBE community, this is the reason why we have made our "Gallery" and "Favorites" serve slightly different purposes

--- 1. Scan/photo quality - Is the image dark, faded, blurry, smudged, or tilted in a way the artist didn't intend.
--- 2. Uniqueness/Variety - We try to fill our gallery with a variety of styles that ranges from the more abstract to realism, realistic to fantasy.  If you have already submitted several deviations to our group within a short period of time, we may decline them to allow others to have a chance to share.    
--- 3. Composition - Dynamic poses vs. a profile head-shot.  If we have accepted a lot of headshots or several deviations with similar compositions we may decline (not frequently).  
--- 4. Unity/Execution - All aspects of the piece executed to the same level as the subject (EX: Rider or background).  All the pieces fit together well/naturally.  

Q. I sent a request to the group gallery but it hasn't been accepted yet.  Why is it taking so long?
A. Sometimes, Andie and Sarah will leave deviations "undecided" in the group messages for a while simply because we don't want to flood our members/watchers' inboxs. We like to spread them out.

Q. What are the submission limits for the group?
A. The submission limits are as follows...
--- 1. FEATURED GALLERY - 1 Submission per month (request acceptance is not guaranteed)
--- 2. GALLERY FOLDERS - 2 Submissions per folder each month (request acceptance is not guaranteed)
--- 3. FAVORITES - 5 Submissions per month (all requests are accepted)
