Read the stinkin information.  We aren't an "everything" group.  It's drawing PEOPLE. drawings of people. art of people.  Stop submitting your non-human art. PLEASE.  It will be declined and my desire to let you know why is dwindling.

To whoever reads this. I started drawing again recently and this time serious :) I am especially trying to improve my drawing without references and I would really appreciate feedback! Even simple one-sentence feedback is more than welcome! Thank you and have a great 2015 :D

do the drawings have to be of humans in order to be put in the group? for example, would I be able to put this in the group?…

Debatable. I've okayed some anime-style humanoid angels and demons and elves and other people-shaped creatures, but I generally reject "furries" because they have animal faces. I would probably okay that particular one, but would ask you to use your own judgement about whether or not you feel it fits the definition of "people."

I give you credit just for asking - a lot of people don't and will submit stuff that has nothing to do with the theme of "people" whatsoever, and it might be super-amazing work but I have to reject it. I usually send the person a note explaining the guidelines and such. So if one of your pieces does get rejected, chances are good you'll know why.
