I found two groups that accepted me into them, AND posted my work.
both let me into their groups and posted up the first of my submissions I sent. I didn't get a message back telling me "our group is full", or "all the admins arn't here to vote on your work so it expired" when I see a ton of submissions that the admins did get posted same day. Thank you to those who suggested groups for me to check out, I appreciate it!
I am still sad to see the direction dA has gone in the past few years. 's idea of creating art to please the masses was funny, but sadly, true. Unfortunately, I will stick to things I feel is truly creative, and I challenge others to stay off the my little pony bandwagon and create something else.......ANYTHING else......PLEASE. You can do soooooo much with Illustrator, Corel, and Photoshop. At least if your going to do my little pony, MAKE IT NEW AND FRESH, add something different that makes your pony stand out from the millions of other ponies.........that could be said for any art in fact.
