Need Help with Submitting art Dec. 7th, 2012 @ 11:03 PM Reply

Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to post my art work from time to time. I'm having troubles submitting one and it keeps giving me this message that says:
"ERROR-there is a problem with your request. please try again later." Can anyone help me out how to post my art without any problems? I would be very grateful.

Unfortunately, this has been a problem for a lot of people lately. There are a few things you could try:

Other browsers
Resaving/renaming your file
Changing the location of the file on your comp (directory)

If you could let us know if any of those work for you, it would be appreciated. Please include the browsers you try/have tried and your OS info.

Really sorry for the trouble, and thanks for any feedback you can provide!
Good luck!

thank you so very much. But there is one more thing that I forgot to mention. How do I find someone that will be able to scout me in order to submit my artwork at the Art Portal? This other message says:
"Your art will not appear in the Art Portal until you are scouted by another artist who is willing to vouch for you and your work"
What should I do in order to get started?

Thank you so much! I feel better already ^_^
But one last question: Is it okay to submit my art work on the Art Forum in order for people to see it? Will it actually help in order to get scouted?

You aren't allowed to ask to be scouted in the forum, but an art thread where you post your work in the forum to get feedback is an excellent way to improve your work.

?? Well, I'm new to this so I'll try and do my best. But I wasn't trying to ask to be scouted. I wanted to how I can be scouted and what are the basics in order to show my work at the art portal. I've already followed the rules and guidelines, so I'm good to go. Thanks for your advise ^_^
