Hey folks, Raina here. Sorry things have been slow it's busy season in professional mermaid land! Still alive. Most things here will auto-accept except for the traditional art gallery (that's the one people always spam) and the DDs. If you find a mermaid DD that isnt in the group yet please submit it for consideration!

The Rules!

I dont have many rules about submitting but I'd like them to be followed.
I have it set so people can submit a whole wack of things to the appropriate gallery without a mod needing to vote. That being said:

Do NOT submit things that have nothing to do with our group

DO NOT submit screen caps of the little mermaid, motivational posters that use copyrighted work, or manips of POTC 4 stills and posters etc. All of these things are against DA policy and will not be allowed in the group. The same goes for manips of h20 or any other copyrighted material. We have a wonderful stock folder full of mermaid and mermaid related stock. If you're manipping, please use that.

FEATURED FOLDER is for Admins to feature people, work we feel everyone would really enjoyed, or is under appreciated. I frequently comb through it to take things from that folder and put them in others to keep it fresh.



Now that I've gotten that off my chest, here's how the galleries work:

Traditional= any 2d image created with traditional materials. NOT sculptures, arts and crafts, etc they have their own section to keep the traditional folder from being too big. Likewise, traditional FANART will go to the fanart section, not the traditional art section.

Digital= any work created with the use of a computer, or any work that it's majority digital. Fanart will not go here, it will have it's own folder, again to keep from making the digital uploads overloaded. Photomanips will also not go here, they have their own section.

Photomanips= anything done with photomanipulation. Note: if you include any art theft it'll be removed. This includes lifting images from google.

Photography= here's where we get tricky. If you have an image of you in a tail that you did not make, and you are not cosplaying a character, it would go here. If you have a mermaid related portrait it would go here. This can also be a good spot for mermaid inspired work.

Mermaid DDs= you can't submit here, but if you find a DD that's not already here please leave a comment or send a note so we can request the image in the group

Arts and Crafts= any traditional art that is not on paper. Sculpting, dolls, jewellery, scrapbooking etc

Costumes= a mermaid tail YOU MADE YOURSELF or a mermaid costume that is NOT cosplay (meaning a character that already exists)

World Mermaid Awards= Photos from the first mermaid convention

Merpalooza 2012= photos from the second mermaid convention

Stock= images of mermaids, of water, or of something related to mermaids that people are allowed to use for manipping purposes. This is a good example of a place where you can submit something mermaid inspired as well

Stamps, Icons, Pixels, Etc= pretty obvious

Fanart AND cosplay= any fanart from an existing character and any cosplay of an existing character. I decided to merge the folder because the majority of fanart and cosplay we get is The Little Mermaid, so this is essentially, The Little Mermaid Folder.... anything TLM goes here, regardless of if it's digital, traditional, etc.

Text= anything text based, so text based imagery, literature, fonts etc.

Thanks for your understanding. Im pretty liberal with the group but these are just the basics folks.

Finally, still looking for some contributors to help out.
Please invite your friends.
