Hi, and welcome to the Semi-Realistics.
We're a group that showcases artwork including both the technical aspects of art, and the artists original creativity.
Whether you're looking to improve in art or just want to show your work to the community, this groups the one for it.


:bulletblue::bulletpink::bulletwhite: Respect other Artists - Disrespecting anyone within The-Semi-Realistics will get you permanently excluded and blacklisted from the group. Spamming or begging for artwork in the comments box or group messages is also not permitted.

:bulletblue::bulletpink::bulletwhite:Submission guidelines - Please make sure you submit to the right folders. If you are unsure of where to submit, below is a list of folders and descriptions to help.
We accept work based on both, the quality of art, and of course the balance between styles used. If your work does not meet these criteria then your submission will be declined

:bulletblue::bulletpink::bulletwhite: Traced, Copied or Stolen work -We do not accept any traced, copied or stolen work. Submitting any of these to the group will get you permanently excluded and blacklisted.

:bulletblue::bulletpink::bulletwhite: Quality of Art -
Our gallery only features finished, high quality artworks. Works in progress, abandoned works or anything that is unfinished will be declined. If your uploading from a sketchpad or photocopy, please make sure the artwork is clean before submitting.

What mediums are allowed? -

While we are generally open to the media/mediums used by artists, however some such as photography and crafts will be declined as it does not correlate to the theme of semi-realism

2 years, 500 members and not single milestone journal to make up for it.

However I do have some updates to report upon that, hopefully, won't end up as apology journal entries for later.

The first are artist features. I'll try to keep them going at least once a month with a variety of artists that work with a variety of mediums. Interviews may of may not be a thing that's happening, but what I can promise so far are a lot of info, promotions and general fawning over artwork.

The second are critiques. The critique folder is now open for submissions. They should follow under the same guidelines that regular submissions do, although artworks in this folder are not limited by quality. Whatsoever. Go crazy.
This option is not restricted to premium members, as all critiques will be written in the comments section under the artwork unless specified. The only thing I ask is that you're looking to improve. Not just use this as a means to get your artwork featured. These things take time and, by jove, I have very little of it left for anything.

The third will be just general art news. Anything from cool new software to the end of CGhub will be posted as journal entries along with something like [NEWS] at the start of it.
Unfortunately, Deviantart has not given us the feature to filter or tag articles (yet), so there's no way to really separate the updates, features and news from each other. However, what I can promise is that journals like these will be few and far-between.
I'm okay with what this group has right now and to be honest, a frequent stream of new features or aimless question journals isn't realistic or appealing to anyone.

To anyone still reading, thank you so much for trucking through it. I hope you all have a wonderful day, and a wonderful holiday tomorrow.

I was wondering why Our Little Oasis was declined..... I thought it is semi-realism....... and I did read the guidelines so I really don't understand why this was declined.
Iruuse Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2014
hello! I wanted to ask why was declined. I read the quidelines.
iColored Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Why was declined?
CheekyKittyAD Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey iColored,
There may be multiple reasons as to why your artwork was declined. Have you read over the submission guidelines?
iColored Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes I have, and I'm still not seeing why it was declined (it wasn't the only one, it was all three of my submissions.) I'm not angry, just curious as to what about my semi-realistic picture of this anime character wasn't acceptable. Is it not good enough quality? Because that would be the only reason if that is your opinion of it.
