Group Info

Shortwinger here! I would like to mention a few things about the group here!
We accept everything from sketches to murals! It can be a piece of jewelry, a painting, or a photograph. My one limitation, is that it has to be a bird of prey! We have a wide selection of folders for you to browse and submit your art. They are designed so you can find the right one for your picture. Everything from Hawks to Caracaras are featured here. If you're having trouble figuring out where to put your picture, you can note me or leave a comment on the group page asking for help. If you want to get it submitted, you can put it in the "Other" category and drop us a comment and we'll move it to the correct folder!

Now, onto some rules so there is no confusion.

I would appreciate it if you would remain, at least civil to the other people in this group. But be the nicest you can to everyone and help out if you want!

My only other rule really, is that, if you want to be an admin, I will ask you some questions and such to see if I think that you could be an admin on here. I also ask of you to at least be active on dA, (I can understand life problems and computer troubles. But if you have to go for a while, do your best to warn us pleas!) and try your best to be active with this group!

Thank you all for reading all of this, I hope to see lot's of good art in the gallery!

I am extremely sorry about your submissions, I am currently the only one working on the group and real life has sort of been in the way.

Is the group alive? My submissions were expired two times in the last few weeks.

I apologize, I have been very busy and have not been able to check DA very often the past few months. I believe I am the only person actively doing anything in this group.

Please resubmit them and I will get them through

It's OK, I understand. :) Just wanted to know if I should stay in the group or leave.
EdgedFeather Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Completely up to you, I would not be upset if you chose to leave. :)
