If you have any problems with the rules, please contact one of our Helpers by noting the group only after trying to use a translation program if English is not your first language.


Please read all rules carefully!!

Failure to follow these rules will result in consequences, leading up to being banned from this group. You MUST read the rules to have deviations or  membership accepted.

  • 1. All Submissions must be UNDER 200 favorites
  • 2. No Sketches or Works In Progress - FINISHED WORKS ONLY
  • 3. No DevIDs
  • 4. All stock must be properly cited
  • 5. No Traces or Edits of Copyrighted Material
    • Submitting traces or edits of copyrighted material will result in a warning the first time you do it and a ban the second time.  Keep in mind there is a very fine line between "referencing" and "tracing".  Click the (period) / (fullstop) / (dot) in the title of the next section
  • 6. All work must be your own
    • Submitting stolen material will result in your immediate ban from this group
  • 7. All submissions of deviation and membership must have the codeword of our group added to the comments on their correspondence item for every submission
    • We will not accept the submission without this codeword
  • 8. Submissions are automatically limited
    • You will not be able to submit more than your limit.  You will only be able to submit 4 deviations per year. Helpers may, however, choose to submit something of yours, which will not count towards your limit
  • 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.

    • 1. Make sure your image meets the above criteria

    • 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.


If you have any problems with the rules, please contact one of our Helpers by noting the group only after trying to use a translation program if English is not your first language.

As someone who speaks spanish as their main language, this was so incredibly obnoxious to try to understand, then trying to click the link on mobile because a period is such a small character that tapping on it was nearly impossible, that I'm now put off entirely from joining.

I know, "nothing of value was lost" or whatever, but this feels so disrespectful, such a waste of time.
I know its frustrating for group admins to have their rules disrespected, but I feel frankly stupid after following those directions; there are thousands of groups that enforce their rules without making people practically beg to join.

I'm sorry that trolls/ignorant people messed with your group so badly that you had to enforce something so extreme, of course, just.
Please consider making this a little more accessible for foreign users/mobile users.

Honestly, trying to join this group should not be a hide-and-seek game. Despite it being possible, there is absolutely no reason to have your members, who are trying to join, have to search every inch of this group, and honestly your directions aren't helping me in the slightest.

I am sorry about that, but that's how the group is run.  
You can easily find the codeword by reading the rules, which you should do in any group you join, regardless if they have a codeword or not.

Click the (period) / (fullstop) / (dot) in the title of the next section

What is (period)/(fullstop)/(dot) ???

I don't have Нажмите кнопку (период) / (fullstop) / (точка) в названии следующего раздела at my keyboard!

Translation doesn't helps at all.

A period, also called a fullstop or a dot is the punctuation mark you add at the end of a sentence.  Like this one -> .
I hope this helps!

As a head's up your codeword thing may not be working right(or I'm looking in the wrong place?). 
I found the instructions to it (not the fact it's a devmuro image, the bit that's hidden within the rules itself), but it doesn't seem to lead anywhere. Links broken, yo. 

TBH I find it kind of silly you have to make this process be THAT hoop-jumpy, but then I realize the group has like... 20k members... so whatever works.

I have written you a note already. English isn't my first language and I have never been to an english speaking country, so I have a few troubles with the codeword thing and what to do with it. I translated it already but it doesn't make sense. Isn't a message and a correspondence the same thing? It's synonym in my first language. So what is a Submission private "correspondence message"?

I feel really stupid now. SORRY!

Inbox is where my messages are, but WHAT item IN my inbox  do you mean?

Now I feel retarded......

Last but not least: devmuro image?

peng....dead

How can I find it if I don't know what a demuro image is? I only see one image with text on it from you here and that is your ID, but it cannot be that easy or can it?

And even if I have the codeword, I still don't get what I need to do with it. This is too much for my not english speaking brain :-(
Maybe someone can help me!
Thank you! You all get cookies!! <3 <3 <3 <3

For codeword:

Read The Rules Journal : unseenartists.deviantart.com/j…

Read it out loud or slowly to help.
There will be an instruction to tell you to do something. If you do it, it will show you a link to a comment with a "devmuro image" in it. Similar to this one: comments.deviantart.com/1/2528… - it will be a comment that looks like that, but this is not the codeword.

Does this help?

Ryugexu Featured By Owner Edited May 28, 2015
I did a separate reply to show you a devmuro image.

"Correspondence message" is i.imgur.com/QrXdHFX.png

The URL we want is the one I point to in the image, for expired submissions or denied submissions. There is a hidden spot where admin can talk on an image and sometimes it can explain why an image was not accepted.

It is ok. Yes.

What that sentance means is "." symbol. Click on the next "." after that sentence. 

Sorry, the "(period) / (fullstop) / (dot) " was meant to prevent confusion with stranslation but it did not work.. What does it translate to in your language? What do you call "." in English?

"period" = "time", fullstop isn't existing, but something with stop??? Sweating a little...  "dot" = "dot" So I was like:........I think I've fainted.  What???? I don't get it >.<
Sorry!!! Thanks for hiding. I know I write stuff here the others aren't suppodes to see. So I write the rest into a message to you! Thank you so much for replying and explaining!

Oooh...then I have got a problem.....There is no such image existing. Or I can't see it.
There is this line in the rules: "Click the (period) / (fullstop) / (dot) in the title of the next section" but I don't know what to click, I can't click on anything at all. I tried I think I've fainted.  I went with my mouse over very word in the text. Damn! Others can do it too, only I can't find it. :o (Eek)

What can I do so see the devmuro image if it isn't there? Is there a trick?
Thanks for responding!

It's really easy to accidentally delete that codeword or miss it. Also once you deleted the correspondence message you have no acces to its comments ever again. It's really unnecessary to make it that complicated. It took me a while to understand it even though my English is fluent. Why don't you just go with notes? That's hell of a lot easier.
