I changed the allowance to one submission per day (was one per week).
Rejection of SubmissionsIf you have submitted a deviation and it has not been accepted, it is because I made the determination that the deviation did not fit into the abstract category. If you disagree with my assessment, feel free to contact me via note and we can discuss it.
Folders Now Accessible!I apologize; I didn't realize that the individual folders were not accessible. Now they are. You are limited to one submission per week. Have fun!
Folders for SubmissionsThere are now folders for each medium (acrylic, oil, mixed media, digital - let me know if I missed one) - please put your new submissions in the appropriate folder. Thanks, and keep submitting your great work!
Let's Focus on Abstract, PleaseI've noticed that some deviations clearly do not fit into the abstract category. Please be sure to submit deviations that fit in the group's title. No realism. Thank you.

Abstract Expressionism: Jacob Feige (1979 - )
“I make landscape paintings that are settings for abstract events, and abstract paintings in a painted landscape.” Jacob Feige's direct account of what he does would, on its face, point to the difference between depiction and abstraction, between the straightforward recording of a scene and its cerebral imagining. He says that he likes to go to a place and “think about what a painting of that place would be like.”
His paintings are based on his own original photos. “I like to have”, he says, “enough recognizable space in which something abstract can happen.” Sensation, as it relates to the very act of looking, is clearly on his mind. For example, a mountain seems not to offer much in the way of abstract, but on the surface, a mountain is a surface upon which the
Most Expensive AbstractsNumber one: No. 5 http://hkukunstgeschiedenis.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/pollock_no5.jpg
Jackson Pollock’s 1948 painting, No. 5 1948. Was arguably his greatest masterwork, the most vivid expression of the painter’s unique style. When it was sold in 2006 by David Geffen, it became the world’s most expensive painting in history at a price off 149.70 million dollars.
Number Two: Woman III by Willem de Kooning http://sullivandaniel.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/woman3.jpg
This is the second most expensive abstract painting with a price tag of $147 million dollars. It was also sold by David Geffen in 2006. Woman III by Willem de Kooning was among one of six painted by the artist between 1951 and 1953, with this version ending up at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, where it would be later hid from the public due to government’s rules of morality.

Abstract Expressionism: Elizabeth Neel (1975 - )
In an interview that I read with Neel, the author describes the interior of her studio: “Tacked to the wall are fascinating and repellant images: a pile of decomposing dogs, an MRI of a skeleton inside its mummy casing.”
Neel said that she likes to “get in there and tangle things up...bring them to the edge of collapse. I want to feel anxiety about whether or not it's a painting.”
Her interest in nature and in death is prevalent in her work.
She was heavily influenced by an event in her childhood: the discovery of a massacre in the chicken coop. One of the chickens was partially consumed, revealing its reproductive system. She traced the stages of life, beginning with a yoke and ending with an egg – all preserved in the moment of death. She says,
Question for the Group on SubmissionsThere has been some debate between myself and some of our members on whether digital art can qualify as painting. I would appreciate some feedback - after all, this is your group. Should digital art be excluded?

why are you ruining MY FANDOMKJNDGKDI was talking about this with a friend and I just wanted to uhhh
vent here a little
and it's about fandoms so hERE WE GO
back in the days, like, 2014-2015, I was basically starting my life on the internet
I was meeting new people, discovering new games and of course, the fandoms
In that time I had entered the fnaf fandom and even though I become slightly popular in some Brazilian groups because of my comics I was a really intolerant person and just,,, kinda shitty in general (Ok, I was just a kid on the internet, y'know that things happen when you're a kid on the internet)
I used to hate EVERYTHING
humanizations, NSFW, gender swaps, extremely cute styles... Anyway, anything that goes against the horror theme of the game (which was very hypocritical because my comics totally broke the idea of the game)
if I was living that time these days, I'd say that they were "cringy"
the time has passed
and I realized how ridiculous it was to complain about DRAWINGS
and I also started to li
suBMIT yOUR ART tO mEMy offer is for you guys to create some sort of shitty picture (line art only) of your own design, to be added to my next video.
So I'm making Tom and Tord play video games and stuff and there's a frame right in the top middle of the scene. It's pretty noticeable, I suppose.
Nothing inappropriate, no shipping and nothing too detailed please! The more ironic, strange and weird, the better. I really suggest you just spend a max of 5 minutes on whatever you decide to draw.
I'll use - I'm guessing - maybe 60% of all 'submissions' I'm predicting I'll get. This might go down depending on if I get more submissions than I bargained for.
I wasn't going to do this, but I decided to because I'm sure you guys can come up with more creative things.

Juris Societas AuxiliumPlease note that the information you are about to discover is by no means common knowledge within the confines of Earth-27. Most of this is not even known to Oracle (though she is beginning to piece it together), Batman, and the world's foremost scholars. Pieces of this information are known to occultists and other scholars of the obscure and arcane, and ARGUS may have a few ideas. With that said, I will also be withholding some details for the time being.
Most scholars that studied the metahuman emergence and the corresponding rise of the superhero point to three major events:
1 - The meteor storm of 1978 which theoretically introduced alien particles into Earth’s atmosphere which interacted with the human genome, causing an increase in the number of persons with meta-genes
2 - The beginning of Batman’s career in Gotham, which inspired others to put on masks, capes, and costumes to take a stand against crime and corruption. Likewise, this is also refere
