In this F.A.Q all your answers about this group will be answered. still not found what you were looking for? send a note! i suggest you read ABOUT US first.

General questions :

Q:"Why is the group called Deviant Bronies Elite"

A: DBE is one of the more prestigious groups on Deviantart. There are so many bronies around the world that make and do amazing things and we want to display that with pride, we have a strong belief that everyone has a talent and we Hope to Inspire people to do better and develop their artistic skills. Our name also has to do with the fact we have quality standards! we are however not a gated community and we welcome all pony-enthusiasts with open arms. We know the word "Elite" is a pretty scary word but our quality standards are not "extremely" high.

Q:"What is this group all about ?"

A: This group is about YOU, because the unique,deviant pony fandom has a lot of talented and promising artists. a lot of other groups accept all art regardless of level of skill, we have our quality standards to ensure our galleries are worth watching,to motivate people to do better and to collect the many beautiful pieces of pony art.

You're FREE to join, We're FUN for our activities and BENEFICIAL because we realize people join groups for a reason : Benefits. we display submitted art in our galleries (as all groups do), but also provide TUTORIALS, promote your Commission status,adoptables,and so on. we occasionally organize challenging contests too. we also try to keep an eye out to see if your art isn't stolen, we respect peoples rights and hard efforts.The only thing we ask in return is that you just follow the few rules we have and that you have a good time ^.0

Q: "Do i need to be a brony to be accepted here?"

Not at all, the "Bronies" in our group's name is a reference to the fandom. Pegasisters and people that don't identify themselves as bronies  can also join. everybody here is treated equally, requests to join are auto-accepted and everybody who enjoys pony art is welcome to join.

Q: Am i good enough to join? can i invite a friend?

A: you'll have to find out yourself! Join our group and submit your art, the admins will then decide to accept it or not. even if you're not an artist yourself you are welcome to join or give us a watch to enjoy the art within our galleries.

Inviting a friend is a good thing to do! if you enjoy being in our group and what we have to offer we hope you spread the word about us, Affiliation requests are also always welcome. The more the merrier! :D

Q: My art is very much appreciated, and i even have Daily deviations. What do you offer me?

A: What we can offer you is display your art in our Featured folder and welcoming you into the Elite class, great art is to be admired and most of all displayed! We believe the most wonderful thing about art is that if it is your passion it is great to share that with others to motivate each other and to inspire each other. No fantastic piece of art deserves to be underrated so we hope to introduce that type of art to others too.

Q: what's with the Featured folder?

A: The featured folder for the best art out there,and the best of the best we display with pride, this is NOT a folder to dictate you what your art should look like and how good it has to be, it's to motivate and inspire you. The featured folder has the best art of our group and only Elite artists can submit to it directly.

Q: What are the rules of the group?

Just like many other groups, #DBE has rules. these are necessary to keep the group secure and fun for everyone,they are displayed here : deviantbronieselite.deviantart…

Q: what makes this group so much better than other groups?

A: The quality of a group is something that differs from opinion to opinion, the fact this group is for people with a more refined taste does NOT mean we look down on other groups or lesser skilled artists. Our group's super status grants us a few benefits other groups don't have, we strive for quality and we offer more than just displaying your art. Besides displaying your art we also :

:bulletpurple: Feature your commission info,contests,adoptables,etc.
:bulletpurple: help artists improve their skills (tutorials gallery).
:bulletpurple: Feature the best of the best art a Pony artist can make, sweet and Elite!
:bulletpurple: Provide the latest news and keep you updated with our countdown app.
:bulletpurple: Feature your merchandise for sale on our market app!
:bulletpurple: Have a specific folder to request constructive criticism.
:bulletpurple: Feature Livestreams!

i've been on deviantart longer than today and i know how hard it is to get watchers, favs, points etc. so i hope we can help you with that. We also care about your opinion very much! we enjoy getting feedback because we wish to do our best.

Classes:

:star: Founder : the Founder, aNIGHTLYpony , is the one who created this group. he has been the head admin for 2 years and 7 months.

:star: Head-admins : The head-admins rule the group together with the admins. they make the most important changes and rule the group. they make the rules and ban/promote/demote members.

:bulletblue: Admins :  they administrate this group,  you can become this by being an active member of the group, no matter how good your art is. also, you have  to be serious about being an admin.

:bulletpurple:Contributor (Elite): Best of the best,  and can submit 10 deviations per week. you can't ask to be promoted to this, that's up to the admins. your art has to be very very good if you wanna be promoted. If you have made art that's chosen to be a daily deviation or that made it into the Featured folder there is a chance to be promoted!

:bulletgreen: members can submit deviations, request videos, vote on polls, request tutorials and can request to feature their artwork, contest, commission status, and everything else! members can submit 7 deviations per week.


Submissions and Requests :


Q: i don't know where to submit a certain deviation, what do i do?

A: No need to worry! at DBE the admins put your art in the respective folder it belongs to. if you think you have what it takes you can submit to the Featured folder, else you can submit to our submission folder (3 deviations a week)

Q: How does submitting work? what is accepted and what not?

You can read that here : deviantbronieselite.deviantart…
this page contains everything you need to know.

Q: what can i request in this group?"

A: becoming noticed on deviantart can be a hard job, when you make art and upload it it can get more views by submitting them to groups.Also, getting people to buy a commission from you,selling your adoptables,promoting your Livestram channel,we can make stuff like that way more easy for you.

all you have to do is send us a NOTE containing your commission/contest info and they'll be added on our list that people can access on the home page or leave a comment on the list.

Commissions list: deviantbronieselite.deviantart…
Contests list: deviantbronieselite.deviantart…
Livestream list: deviantbronieselite.deviantart…

you can also request affiliations with other groups. most important is that you can request TUTORIALS AND CRITIQUES! to make you become a better artist.

Why is my submission not being accepted?
mane-shaker.deviantart.com/art…

I mean, maybe it's too soon to be asking, but there's a lot of rules in here for a group.
Not that I have a problem with It.
But It has been refused 2 times, and makes me wonder after a quick look at the gallery.
So, recolors for OCs and vectors directly taken from the show are ok?
But NOT an original traditional drawing?

Do I just select, "Contribute to this gallery"? Because it won't let me submit to any folders.

There are two ways you can submit art to a specific folder:

1)Go to the main page then select any folder that you wish to submit your art (You can find the folders in the "Gallery Folders" section). Once you're inside that folder, go to the right upper hand side and select the [+Submit to this folder] button.

2)Go to any of your art entries, from there scroll down until you see a button that says [+Submit to a group] It's a small button so be sure to look closely for it.

?? that's odd. Yup that's how it's done, but you can only submit to the Submision folder, the admins will then sort your art to the correct folder.

Pro-tip: When viewing or submitting your deviations, you have the ability to submit directly to groups too!
