Welcome to the Dallas / Ft Worth area DeviantArt group!
I started this group to meet and network with other deviants in the DFW Metroplex area. We hope to foster a community atmosphere where everyone is welcome and where there is support and help for everyone in meeting their goals as artists. Whatever your medium, your current level of skill, or your involvement in the community, we hope to provide resources to help you learn and grow as an artist and to market yourself and your work.

Comment with more ideas!
We understand that the internet isn't always the most civil place. We ask that you exercise a little extra caution in the DFW group. When speaking with group members, try to consider the DFW group to be an "in person" gathering. A good rule of thumb is "would I say this in person?" If you catch yourself about to say something here that you wouldn't normally face-to-face, it might be best to reconsider what you're saying. This should not be a barrier to expressing ideas - we believe in the free expression if ideas. We hope simply that you can find a way of expressing your ideas that is cordial. We also understand that people make mistakes and sometimes tempers flare - we're all human. And we hope that when such things happen, we can all take some time to reflect constructively on the situation and find ways to help avoid repeating these mistakes. If we all work together, we can keep the group a great place to be.
This group is brand new, so we don't really know yet what this group will look like. As we grow, we'll pay careful attention to the member's ideas and requests to make sure this group does as much as possible to help our members achieve their goals. I encourage you to contact me here or in private notes with any ideas of requests you might have.
Looking forward to it!
