Grape (Xmas series) by bribesdemoi

A lot of pictures submitted to various "nude" groups on DA are... primitive to say the best, vulgar at worst. I was very pleasantly sur...

It's a likable picture, there's no doubt about it. It gives rather dreamy impression, very fair complexion (and makeup) together with s...

Group idea - admins sought

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 8, 2014, 4:48 AM
Gallery l Watch Me l Note Me

I'm looking for a handful of people that would help me run a group. Curious? Read further.

I've recently quit admin position in TheBestEquine, because other admins where hopelessly idle and approval process was set in a way which made it impossible to approve anything without their aid. I regret the death of the group (unless a miracle happens, I don't think it will rejuvenate anyway), since I really liked its idea - we have a lot of animal groups, but most of them have either automatic or very benevolent approval. I thus have to sieve through hundreds of deviations to find the few good ones. The groups that aim for very high standards are, on the other hand, not animal oriented. I'd like to start a group TheBestAnimals (or something similar) that would aim to create a digest of animal artwork on DA, so that a watcher would only get a few pictures a day, but could expect they'd be worth looking at.
Now why am I writing about it rather then going ahead - I know that I have my busy moments and wouldn't want the group to suffer the same fate as TheBestEquine. Furthermore, if I'm to include non-photography media, I could use artists focusing on these to help me select the best works. 
I'm definitely not going to run the group alone (I don't think it would work), so the point of this journal is to find out if there are any people who'd be willing to help me. 

What I seek:
People who are online decently often (two or three times a week minimum)
People with decent grasp on given media (no, you don't have to be Michelangello)

What I offer:
Work
More work
Feeling that you're helping to run a successful group (eventually... maybe... :))

If the wonderful benefits persuaded you and you'd like to try, please send me a note with information if you have any experience with groups (are/have been running one), what sort of media/pictures you like and perhaps a few pictures you'd consider a good pick for "the best". If I get enough responses to fill an admin team, a new group will be born. If not... well, I'll probably focus on more watcher features :)

Your photographies are really awesome! The colours are so amazing! :clap:
Could we use them as a reference for drawings if we credit you in the description, or not?
Anyway even if we can't, your work is really impressive!

I'm somewhat interested in helping with this, group. Though I'm fairly young and have little experience, if any at all, people have to start somewhere, and I'm interested in photography and things that fall along in that line of art. It doesn't really bother me if I'm not accepted, personally it's just something I thought of trying out.

The group is currently on hold, since I realized I don't have time for anything, even my photos are posted erratically. I will keep it in mind in case I get more free though.

Where do you find all of the animals you take pictures of? I'm intrigued...
