Also, Inner Space offers a collection of tutorials and resources which have been contributed by our members, they display an array of ways in constructing different kinds of space art. As a long standing group here on DA, we welcome all fellow lovers of the genre to come join us!!

Only contributors and members are allowed to submit art for the inner-space gallery. Please credit your sources! Crediting will be strictly enforced.
Limit on amount of submissions per week: A maximum of 1 artwork per week will be accepted from each member. Great quality artwork doesn't come in quantity and we don't want to flood members' inboxes or have the staff over working to get everything submitted. New artworks that are submitted will be reviewed, because we want to make sure our members are contributing the best quality artwork. So please be a little patient. If an artwork is not accepted we will send back a critique reply. We want you to be able to edit and feel encouraged to improve your work.
1) Please refer to Staff Position Information regarding information about the administration positions.
2) Galleries have descriptions created for them now, which will make it easier for everyone to decide which gallery they should be submitting to. Please take care to submit it to the correct gallery.
The Legal Stuff: inner-space doesn't have many rules, but we emphasize a few important ones.
1) No Harassing Other Members
inner-space is dedicated to constructively helping fellow space artists. As such, no member is allowed to harass another member, or degrade them based on their artistic ability. If you can't be helpful, don't say anything.
2) NO PLAGIARISM
NO member is allowed to use anyone else's art in their own submissions unless permission is granted by the artist, or the art being used in question is free domain. Any art found to be plagiarized, in whole or in part, will be removed from the inner-space list. Please credit your sources! Crediting will be strictly enforced. They must come from approved stock sites and only stock or artwork with written permission from the owner. A link to the original stock must be provided in the description. A site link is not acceptable or not knowing where you retrieved the stock.
If a member breaks one of these rules, they will be given a warning. inner-space believes in the 'baseball philosophy'; three strikes and you're out. Upon your third warning, you will be removed from inner-space and blocked from further involvement.
