Welcome to the Treehouse!

This is a place for you to escape from the frenzied drama that is so often a part of the Internet in general, and DeviantART in particular. We hope you enjoy the chance to get away from it all here at the Treehouse.

:bulletblue:Our Focus:bulletblue:

First and foremost, we are about relationships. We want you to get to know your fellow Deviants. Everything we do here in the Treehouse is for the purpose of establishing lasting friendships within our group and all over DeviantART.

If you are a member here, get to know some of the other members you do not know. Visit their pages. Give insightful comments on their deviations. Leave them notes. Ask them how they've been. Find out what things they like and dislike. This isn't just another group for you to share your artwork. It's a place for you to share yourself.

:bulletblue:To Join...:bulletblue:

All you need to do is click the "Join" button. When you submit your application to join, we would love it if you would include on the application a little bit of information about yourself that you are willing to share with others in the group (nothing too personal - if you don't want it known to the other members, then please don't include it in the application).

This is the form we use for information:

Name: This can be your real name, nickname, shortened version of your username, or maybe "Just my full username is fine, thanks." =)
Interests/Likes: Things you like to talk about. Hobbies. Fandoms. Artists you admire on dA. Other groups you think are awesome that we should know about. (We hope to start a forum or chatroom later.)
One thing you like about dA: Does something on DeviantART make you happy?
The kinds of art you like to create: What is your preferred medium, genre, style, etc.?

:bulletgreen:Submission Guidelines:bulletgreen:

We accept artwork of almost any genre, medium, and type. Whether it's photography, paintings, drawings, stamps, pixel art, digital paintings, typography, anthro, etc. Because the purpose of our group is to establish and maintain friendships, we hope you will bear that in mind when submitting. Here are a few more specific guidelines about artwork we encourage:
  • Artwork that portrays or implies a positive message. We are dedicated to spreading positivity here on DeviantART.
  • Artwork that honors fellow Deviants, particularly unnoticed ones. Some Deviants out there have done fantastic work and gone unnoticed. If you have created Deviations (stamps, posters, etc.) that honors them or their work, we would love to see it!
  • Artwork that promotes love of DeviantART in general. DeviantART is a great place where artists can come to express themselves, and if you support it, we are happy to let people know about it.
  • Artwork that promotes education and improvement. This includes tutorials, resources, or anything you may deem helpful for fellow Deviants.
  • Artwork that promotes friendship. It's what we're all about.

One other rule: Our group does not currently have a submission limit. We do, however, expect members to be reasonable and prudent in submitting artwork. Please do not submit your whole gallery at one time, or the submissions will be declined. Try to limit yourselves to a few deviations per week. Remember: The point of this group is not to promote yourself, but to promote each other!

:bulletred:Some Things We Don't Accept:bulletred:

We don't accept artwork that is counter to our focus of building relationships and promoting positivity. This includes the following:
  • Artwork concerning hot-button issues. This is anything controversial, like abortion, LGBT, wolf hunting, global warming, etc. And this includes both sides of any issue. In other words, we will decline anti-gay or anti-hunting art, for example, just as quickly as we would decline pro-gay or pro-hunting art. This is not because we are meaning to be intolerant. On the contrary, we encourage you to be a part of this group regardless of what your views on any subject may be, and we want you to be able to come here and be able to get away from those debates.
  • Any artwork concerning religion or politics. As with hot-button issues, there are already plenty of venues on DeviantART for that, and even though they sometimes serve as common interests, they are counter to our focus of promoting friendships. We will never decline membership on the basis of religion or political ideology, but we must ask that artwork related to it stay out of this group.
  • We ask you keep it clean when submitting. This means
    • No nudity
    • No drug or alcohol use
    • No profanity
    • No rudeness or hate
    • No sexually explicit content
    • No excessive violence/blood/death/gore/etc.
    • No fetishes
  • Any artwork that goes against the Terms of Service and Etiquette Policy. If it is not allowed on DeviantART, then it should not be here anyway. If you submit such a deviation, it will be denied and reported.

Other than that, check the group's galleries to make sure you are submitting your art in the right place. And have fun! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask an administrator. We are here to help you, and we want you to enjoy this group. :)

To all our wonderful members and visitors...

One of our affiliate groups, PickMeUpMondays, is hosting a contest.  The theme for this contest is "Light Me Up" - as the title suggests, the appropriate artwork would be a photo of something that brightens your day, a story of a random act of kindness, etc.  All media are acceptable as contest entries for this contest.  You can find more detailed information in the group's blog entry about it, or you can talk to Sianco for more info.

Have a great week!

Jack (Founder, dA-Treehouse)
