I am looking for a couple admins to cover the site when I can't get to it. You must be a member and your portfolio must reflect stunning work. Let me know if you are interested!
I just recently started a business and am swamped with the workload. I rarely have time to get on here anymore and don't want to close the group!!

I guess I'll be starting off the contest this month!!!

In honor of the season (April shows bring May flowers, and that sort of thing), we're going to do a Flower contest!

So please only submit your best pieces. It's limited to one entry per person.

As always, prizes will be the Avatar Space for a month and a free three month subscription to Deviant Art!
As of today, Serious-Photorealism will be welcoming all forms of medium. Oil, pastel, colored pencil, YOU NAME IT. If you can draw with it, AND DRAW PHOTOREALISM, it will be accepted. I will also be adding two new folders to the gallery in which members can submit their artwork. These folders will serve as a critique and learning ground for new members to get advice about their artwork. The goal of these two folders is to provide a learning environment for members to advance their skills to the levels required to submit to Serious-Photorealism. Real, practical advice will be given to each piece from highly-talented members of Serious-Photorealism. I will also personally provide advice on every piece.

If you have any thoughts or ideas or would like to become a moderator for the group, please send me a message and I will be glad to consider your request.

Founder of Serious-Photorealism
Ok, last contest I had a lot of submissions that had nothing to do with the guidelines I posted. It is important that you guys read the entry requirements before posting to the contest folder. If you post a work that isn't related to the theme, although it is good, I will not accept it as part of the contest.

So, with that being said, lets move on to the April contest!

All you talented Serious Photorealism artists out there, I challenge you to create drawings of children in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month!
Submit only your best pieces and submit only once!

Do not submit anything other than drawings of children for this contest.

I look forward to your entries. As always, prizes will be the Avatar Space for a month and a free three month subscription to Deviant Art!
Alright members and contributors!! I have had this question asked of me many times...
Does Serious Photorealism accept other mediums than graphite or pencil? The question has been asked of me numerous times and now am I asking you guys...

Do you think that Serious Photorealism expand it's horizons to include mediums other than just graphite and pencil?

Comment on this blog entry and let me know what you guys think. If the responses are overwhelmingly positive, I will completely overhaul the group to accept new and varying medium entries!
More Journal Entries

Submission Rules

We now accept Color work, pencil work, digital work and paintings! If it can be created with any form of drawing or painting, BUT IT STILL MUST REFLECT A HIGH LEVEL OF PHOTOREALISM SKILL.

Feel free to browse our gallery for examples of the skill we are looking for.

Currently, there is no limit on how many submissions you can enter.

You will also notice that we have two unique folders: Member Art: Beginner and Member Art: Intermediate.
If you would like honest, helpful critiques on your art work, please submit your piece to the appropriate Member Art folder and our team will be glad to offer you pointers and guidance on your way to mastering photorealism.

I submitted some work but it was never reviewed and now the submission has expired can I submit again ? Is that allowed?

? Nothing created via 3D software! Am I to understand you don't believe 3D artists have skill - there is no such thing as a "make pretty" button you know, it takes a lot of time, work and skill.
If this is the case then you have a very arrogant and biased attitude towards 3D artists, maybe you should try making a photo realistic image in a 3D app to understand the workload involved and how difficult it is to create photo-real accuracy you wouldn't be so quick to dismiss this medium and think the software does all the work for you.

It's not that I don't think that 3d artists have no skill, this is simply a site for traditional methods. There are plenty of groups you can join that showcase 3d art, this is not one of them.

I'm unsure if I shall join this group or not. I'm quite unsure if my photorealisms are worthy enough. :-/ Would you like to see a sample first?
Kristelok Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
When are you going to accept my drawings? You just let them expire.. Just accept it, or decline it with a fair reason! (:
MrsRiordan Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012
Sorry! I haven't been on here in a while. I just went through all the submissions and added a whole bunch of new artwork in. :) Nothing personal!!

Okay (;

I know that you´re free of who you accept on your group, but the most frequent comment about my works is "I thoght it was a photo". This one [link] was declined with the note "we don´t accept photos". Yet your ingnored my request of koining the group twice. I see I´m not the only one in the same case. I agree with many others in my case. Please, be more serious.
