Hi!I submitted these a while ago, so sorry if you can't remember, but I wanted to know why my Hyakki Yagyo and my Bakeneko were rejected. I would really appreciate any feedback you have to offer!

Oh I see. Sorry it is just the quality filter our group hold. This picture has some anatomical and drawing issues and also photographed badly (sorry we even take notice of how the picture is presented, scanned or photographed.)
But please don't feel discouraged, just take it as a chance to improve your art and come back later. :)
