Welcome to I-Heart-Colors! We're a group dedicated to showing imaginative, colorful and vibrant artists and their work.

We're an unusual color-oriented group with our own rules--we only accept works that have more than a certain amount of color in them, are extremely color-focused and we really appreciate good quality. This to only bring you, dear members and watchers, the color-wise best and most inspiring pieces of art! :heart:

We welcome artists of all skill levels, as long as their art is colorful! If you are an artist who is not afraid to use colors, please do join us here! If you're only an appreciator of colorful art, you might want to watch the group instead :)

We hope you will gain from your stay with us and enjoy yourself along the way!

Please Read : Submission Guidelines


Hello everyone :wave:

Please familiarize yourself with the rules and guidelines of our group to avoid confusion regarding the submission process.





Submission Guidelines


General

We ask that you respect these submission rules to avoid wasting time for re-submitting and occupying the admins.
The submission guidelines in journal format can be found here.

:bulletgreen: please make sure to submit to the appropriate folder.

:bulletpink: the submission limit per folder is 1 deviation every week.

:bulletgreen: mature themes are acceptable, as long they are not presented in a vulgar and unethical way, and they have the mature filters.

:bulletpink: our group focuses on visual art forms, which is why we do not accept literature works.

If you are having trouble with submitting work to the gallery, feel free to use this guide.


Content

We're an open-minded group. You can submit any kind/style of visual art that relates to colour. This means you can submit art that is once-coloured, multi-coloured, rainbow-themed or any other form of art that accentuates colour. We welcome beginning and professional artists.

Please Remember:

1. When voting, we focus on the quality and usage of color in your work.
There are plenty of images that have lots of colors in them, but simply aren't well thought through or well done. Our group is looking for pieces that focus on the colors used: pieces that wouldn't look as good in, say, black and white. Please take these things into consideration when submitting and please do not feel discouraged when your work is declined.

2. Make sure there are colors in your piece!
Please note that we do not accept purely white, black or gray-scale work. The purpose of our group is to showcase colors, and we have decided not to view b&w as such. We also take into consideration the amount of colors in your work, and we can choose to decline a piece if we feel it hasn't got enough colors overall.

3. Only submit your best work
Please do not submit scribbles, doodles or quick snapshots. If we feel like very little effort has been put into your piece, we might decline. We accept works of all skill level, as long as it's your best work.

4. Please only submit finished art.
We do not accept Works in Progress, uncropped works or blurry/low-quality photos.

5. You always get a reason.
The admins will always give a reason for declining your work. This is not to criticize you or your art, but to help you to submit the right kind of art in the future.

6. Make sure to submit to the right folder.
The most obvious rule of all! We will decline work submitted to the wrong folders, and tell you in a comment the correct folder to re-submit to. Unfortunately we are getting so many submissions it's impossible to re-submit all of them ourselves, thank you for understanding this.

If you have any questions in regards to any of these rules, then please feel free to send us a note :note:

Thank you for reading! :rose:

Featured - Hand-picked colourful work from our galleries, these are pieces the gallery admins feel deserve a place in this special folder.

Old stuff - a folder for all the submissions that were in the group before but that we now feel don't fit the group anymore since our updated rules. Please don't try submitting here or comparing your work to this, it's called "Old stuff" for a reason!
