Bullshit Rejections

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 1, 2014, 9:54 AM
Hey, is my stuff really that bad? I mean, I joined Hentai Foundry three years ago because, well, you've seen my work... Anyway, for most of that time, I was on the "Auto Accept" or whatever you call it list (that or been really fortunate to be right up against the bumper), and the few times i wasn't, I got accepted. Twice I was rejected due to file/image size being too big, and one image was removed for being "off-topic"; apparently, a rendering of a Halo sniper rifle, just showing that I don't always draw porn, doesn't fit, but I get that.

Starting in February, after a brief interregnum, I started getting getting rejection notices. A lot of them. For example, out of ten pictures submitted within a span of time, nine didn't make it. :/  Usually with the implication that it was unfinished and belonged in scraps, and in some cases rejected four times, after I'd done better cleanup, or darkening it, thinking those were the problems. If they were unfinished, Scraps is where they'd be. Recently, it's been simply "Not meeting quality standards". And I've stopped trying to "fix" them. They aren't being rejected for anatomical failures or whathaveyou; Sometimes they're accepted totally un-edited, as before.

Part of the submission rules states that submissions will be judged according to the artist's own past work, and I'd be the first to admit that I'm somewhat inconsistent, and I frequently do. But something, in my opinion, is very wrong. Maybe it's me. But I feel like someone admin-side changed their personal criteria, or I pissed them off somehow -maybe the guy currently running Kick-Ass Babes on dA is one of them- or if a different person/s reviews me now, or what, I don't know how it's organized.

I have noticed that for some reason, some people will accept color work no matter how badly it's done, and no matter if it destroys any subtlety in the pencil work.

 I've considered taking this to the forum dedicated to such things, but my experience with the afore-mentioned dA group, plus my occasional lack of tact when angry -even with the cooldown time afforded by the medium- has made me reticent.
