  • 9. Keep your correspondence for future reference
  • Sometimes correspondences expire, we will NOT open a new resubmission for you without this proof
  • 10. If a submission expires that should have been accepted, please send the group a note with a link to the expired correspondence. This way, a Helper can resubmit the deviation for you. WE DO NOT ACCEPT A LINK TO THE IMAGE ITS SELF FOR THIS!
  • 11. We do not accept deviations made by a different user, or that go-against the terms of use for deviantArt and/or would be rated above PG-13
    Nudity/suggestiveness is OK, specifically sexual content is not


  • Submitting to UnseenArtists.

    • 2. Click submit to a group and select UnseenArtists

    • 3. Go into your messages and select "Correspondence Items"

    • 4. There will be a notice saying that your deviation is waiting approval.  Click on the link titled "Comments"

    • 5. Type in our codeword and hit send


  • What is the Codeword?

    • The codeword is a word or phrase I, TwinEnigma, have entered into a comment.  

      To submit to this group, you must add it to the comments of your submission's private correspondence message AND to your join as a member request - the item in your inbox that tells you whether or not we've accepted your work yet - to prove that you've read and understand our rules.

      To prevent you from copy and pasting it, I've concealed it in a devMuro image.  You WILL have to view the image in order to see it.
  • Where do I find it?

    • Read very carefully.  The instructions to find it are in this blog.

      It is not in any of the comments to this blog.
  • Why do I need a codeword?

    • It proves you have read and understand our submission rules.

      It also prevents certain users who have abused our system in the past from spamming us with submissions.
