PLEASE READ THE RULES CLOSELY BEFORE POSTING ARTWORK.

1. First and foremost, be nice. :) We want everyone here to have fun, share artwork, and in general, have a good time.

2. All artwork must be completely your own in execution (fanart is allowed, of course). We don't allow the coloring of someone else's artwork (even as a collaboration), tracing, art theft, or any other use of another person's artwork. This is to prevent any complications or misunderstandings. Using other pieces for reference is all right, but please, no direct copying in any way. Any piece that is found to have any of these attributes will be immediately removed from the group if it was initially accepted. If someone is found to knowingly abuse this rule, they will be immediately banned.

3. Only submit your very best artwork! Substandard artwork may be rejected. All artwork must be in full color or in some way polished and finished. Please, no quick sketches, WIPs or manga pages, they will be denied. Grayscale paintings are allowed. Cell style painting is also allowed, as long as the artwork has depth with shading and proper lighting. Flat, garish colors are likely to be denied.

4. Digital art is usually preferred over traditional art. This keeps the quality to a higher level, since traditional art is a much more difficult medium to master. Some traditional artwork will be allowed, though, if the quality is high enough.

5. NO ART CONTAINING SEXUAL CONTENT OF ANY KIND. ANY IMAGERY THAT INVOLVES AN ADULTxCHILD, NO MATTER HOW INNOCENT THE IMAGE MAY BE, WILL RESULT IN BEING IMMEDIATELY BANNED. We also ask that you do not submit "tasteful" nudity, shoujo-ai, or shounen-ai. Also, please, no sexual bondage art, no matter how well-clothed the characters are.

6.Some violence is ok, but please keep the gore to a minimum. :)

7. Please don't use this group for advertising other groups.

8. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND, I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DENY ANY ARTWORK, FOR ANY REASON. Starting immediately, all art pieces will be reviewed before showing up in the gallery. Sorry for the inconvenience! :)

9. IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR PICTURE TO THE CORRECT GALLERY, IT WILL BE DENIED IMMEDIATELY, NO MATTER WHAT.


Good examples of the quality we're looking for:

Silver by inkhana In The Pond by DiamondFusion Fire and Ice by calbhach Great Spirit of the Skies by anocurry





Featured - Do not submit to this folder, please! Administrators will be responsible for featuring the best art in the galleries.

OCs - Any sort of OCs~ Have fun, be creative! Again, just follow the rules~

Landscapes - Any landscape or scenic views of any kind go here, including cityscapes.

Creatures - Animals, creatures, monsters, anything that isn't human goes here.

Commissions - Any commissions or requests go here.

Miscellaneous - Not really an OC, a piece of fanart, or a landscape? Post your pic here!

Tutorials - Any tutorials can be posted here.

Hello everyone!

For all of you who have joined...THANK YOU. You’ve really made this group grow and become something I never thought it would really be. Over 200 members and growing! This group, founded two years ago, has been in desperate need of changing things up...so here we go!


For all of my members this month (And for members just signing up, too!), I’m doing contests with prizes!

A group icon contest
The winner will receive a journal featuring their art, and a 3-month Core Membership!
A raffle for members who share our group in a journal on their account or group
The winner will receive a journal featuring their art, and a 1-month Core Membership!

I’ll be posting journals about both of these at a later time, once all of the details have been worked out. Keep your eyes open! :D

The higher paying features will be posted at the top of the list! For all who pay, I’ll be posting a journal, featuring your artwork! (Please note, though, that I can only feature the art that still fits within the guidelines of the group rules). Group features will be listed above the member features, always.

If you decide to have your account or group featured, please let me know via note, and I’ll give you my paypal info!


Another new feature on the website: for a nominal fee, I’ll critique your work, in depth!

Basic observation about improper anatomy, incorrect perspective, or anything else that can be described as being slightly wrong. Suggestions for correction will not be given with this kind of critique, nor will I critique color. Only line-work/underlying shapes of colored work.
