Hi everyone!

You may have noticed that :iconwelovetraditionalart: now has over 16,000 members, putting us firmly as the largest non-elitist Traditional Art group on DA!

However, with this size, we need multiple admins to be able to assess and accept or decline the hundreds of submissions we get each week.  Being an admin here is easy - if a deviation meets our rules (such as submitted to correct folder, cropped correctly, no mature content etc) then it should be accepted.  We don't judge the standard of art, we trust you to submit your best art only (as you only have one submission per month) but want it to be presented at it's best.  Usually at least 90% of submissions are accepted.  If a deviation needs to be declined, then unfortunately we don't routinely comment, as we don't have the resources (if yours is declined, read the rules!!) but we can give feedback on request.

If you are able to give 10 minutes of your time per day, or most days in the week, then this is a rewarding job, and you will play an important part in one of the largest serious groups on DA.  If you are already an admin, your continued support would be appreciated!

If you want to be considered as a Admin, please send me a message!

Dave
Co-Founder of WLTA (and currently the only active Admin!!)

I'm doing haggle cheap commissions!
message me for more details!
Select Option Commission 
Hello!
I'm open for requests on select option drawings. These will be referenced from my four dragon drawings (please see the add on's). Poses can be either up to me or agreed upon (names will be dealt with similarly).
These drawings will be done on an A7 card with colored pencil only. 
Color pallet is limited to what colored pencils I have, which happen to be only the base colors.
Bases you can choose from: "Lizzy", "Mr. Z", "Blarg" and "Dr. Q".
The selections are: Wings(1), Body(2), Tail(3), Head(4).
The options for the selections are: Color and color of stripes(yes or no on the stripes)(1), Color and accent color(2), Color(3), Color(4), 
-Guide lines in depth: Wings: [Base color, color of stripes y/n](1). Body: [Base color, accent color](2). Tail: [Base color](3). Head: [Base Color](4).

For example of how this works: "I would like to see "Mr. Z"; Wings: red with white stripes, Body: Blue with yellow ac
Open Prompt Commission
Update! I'm currently hold this commission open permanent! If you would a good and cheap commission, please do!
(I need the points/money)

As the title states, I'm doing commissions based on any prompt that's variably easy. Example: Spring, Light, Death, ect...
So long as the request isn't too complicated, can be stated in one word and can be done on an A4 sized paper with acrylic, it should be acceptable. :3
Embarrassed 
(try to keep the requested item one word)
Thanks!
First request is free!
All others will be 10pts
-Commission 1: Magic Runes suggested by: :iconfumeijoe: -Free
