A warm welcome from us!
Feel free to ask questions, advice or have a chatter :3
Contributors are those who have increased submit limits due to their consistent high quality - Don't pester them with Admin issues ;)


..:: Submitting Rules ::..

Our aim is to accomodate & support all budding illustrators in an open, friendly community...! And most of all, help show off your best works to everyone else ;)

To help us out we have a few simple folder guidelines for each user...


:bulletred: We do NOT currently accept: :bulletred:

Crafts / Non 2D-printable works
Poor (unclear) scans / Photos of work
Mature / Sexual themes
Doodles (often on note paper)
Animations (minimal movements accepted)
Work by others
Adoptables / Sprites
Free lineart
'Original Species' (unrelated to realistic animals)
Fanart (Sonic, Pokemon etc. at our discression)
Dead / Distressed animals (fantasy excluded at our discression)

:bulletblue: P.S. There will be a short delay before your images are added as we have to approve each one first. If your image is declined we will include a reason and some tips =)


For our icon as a STAMP, use the following...

Stamp - Animal Illustration by Faelourn
We've always been a very specific group in terms of our galleries, and that's what you guys watch us for. Our members are super and 95% of the time a declined image is simply because it doesn't fit our group's theme.

It is a shame when we decline awesome crafts and well-drawn animations for this reason, so we now have 4 new Fave Collections for you to submit these to and show us your work.
For those who watch the group for good old 2D illustrations, no fear, submits to the Fave folders do not show up in your messages, you only have to look if you're interested ;)

Let me tell you about new places to submit --> animal-illustration.deviantart…

:bulletblue: Help & Critique :bulletblue:
Submit your pics here specifically if you want some help, redline or critique. We do allow WIPs here, but don't flood with the same image! If you're looking here because you want to give critique, please be as helpful as possible and, most importantly, be polite.

:bulletblue: Crafts :bulletblue:
If it's 3D and animal-themed, show it off here! We see a lot of feather paintings, decorative boxes and sculpture in the submits, and now we finally have a place for them.

:bulletblue: Animations :bulletblue:
While we do allow 'minimal movement' icons into our main gallery, this is a more specific folder to show off longer, more detailed animated works!

:bulletblue: Adoptables & Sprites :bulletblue:
Love 'em or hate 'em, there are some good animal ones out there! As long as they're well-presented, anyone interested in their buying/selling/displaying can find them in here.

While we populate the new folders you may submit 1 per week on top of the normal gallery allowance.
We hope these folders work well for you and help show off some more work!
Best wishes :)

:bulletblue: Inbox Floods? :bulletblue:
As members grow, so will submissions! Here's how to stop recieving all notifications for every image put in the group, for those who don't already know ;)
* Click the dropdown 'Friends' tab at the top right - There's a button at the bottom "Add / Remove"
* Find 'Animal-Illustration' and click the green tick under the 'deviations' column.
* Now, to see any new images submitted to the group you can check back at your own leisure ;)
* We strongly reccommend you stay subscribed to our JOURNALS - This will be the only way to keep you updated on activities & submission changes!
