Submitting a Deviation to the Group
To contribute art, go to the group's main page or gallery page and click the button for submitting art. It will bring up a menu box that will allow you to choose deviations from your gallery to include in the group. Please be responsible in choosing the gallery your art belongs in.
Classic Style (true to the old forms)
Contemporary Style (a new twist on an ancient art)
Cross-Genre Style (knotwork is one element in the piece)
Currently, member submissions require admin approval to ensure they are genuinely knotwork, and placed in the correct category. Please be thoughtful when submitting your art.
Due to the time-intensive nature of creating knotwork designs, I do not expect a flood of deviations from this group. If message-box flooding problems do occur, submissions will change to moderation and be limited in number.
Suggesting a Fave for the Group
Anyone can suggest a fave for the group. On the group's Favorites page, at the top of the page you will see a button for "Suggest a Fave". On the drop-down menu you can choose which of the categories you want to submit to. Select the deviation you want Faved, and click OK. Member suggestions are automatically approved. Suggestions from anyone outside the group require approval from an admin.
Faves are an excellent way to advertise the group to non-members, and to build a more comprehensive collection of knotwork art on dA, so don't be shy about suggesting your favorite knotwork art.
The object submitted can be anything at all... so you can all pick whatever you are best at.. remember FB's can be as riddled with beads as any other item of knotwork... if you don't believe this, keep an eye out for my future tutorials on the subject... I think it's good, wherever possible to have contests that are as open as is possible as far as what type of ojects are acceptable in a given contest...
Originality... a given in this group....
Creativity, unusual techniques etc......
Good easily discerible design with character....
Naturally enough!... ... an extremely liberal use of beads... and we all know the immense variety available out there... by the way: it is not about the value or "quality" of beads used... it's about the way the beads contribute to the beauty and harmony of the overall design...
