Hello everybody and welcome to Animal Character art, a group to show off your orignal characters and get help from fellow artists. This group is dedicated to help everyone to create, share and evolved their original character, especially when you want to use those characters for stories or comics. Each good story needs equally good characters.
But first a few guidelines. Please read those carefully:
1. What is Animal Character Art?
ACA is a group that focus on your animal characters, be it characters you created for your own comic/story or fan characters you created for your favorite cartoon/anime/book. We focus not only on their outward appearance but also on their personality.
We will also provide a collection of tutorials you may need to create your characters and you can always ask T0xicEye if you need help with creating your characters for your own project or if you have any kind of question concerning the group.
2. What can I submit? And what not?
Anything that has to do with your animal characters. All colors, styles and forms are allowed. Fantasy creatures, chimeras, hybrids. Be it digital or traditional. Sketches and rough concepts/drafts are only limited allowed and go all into the First Drafts folder. This folder is also used for characters that are still in early developement.
If the image/referencesheet IS NOT drawn by you but a commissioned work or gift, make sure you have the original artist's approval before even uploading it to dA.
3. What animals are allowed?
All feral animals, fantasy or realistic are allowed. You have your basic like lions, tigers, and wolves. Hybrids or crossbreeds like ligers, wolfbear, or winged animals. Any animal-like fantasy creature is allowed, THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE ELVES, PIXIES OR CENTAURS! Anthros DO NOT count either and are right now not allowed. (That may change)
And please make sure you submit into the right folder!
4. Can I have my own Gallery?
All contributors by default and each member who has a serious project can have their own gallery. But you have to request first with your reason why you want an own folder. Be convincing. Contributors do not need to show us a reason to get an own folder. They already did when they became contributors (please read point 5 for "How to become a Contributor?")
5. How to become a contributor?
Everyone with a serious project (like a comic, fancomic, fanfiction, original fiction) can become a contributor. Or do you think you can give a hand and help members with their character creation for their own stories? Then please send an request to join contributors and give a reason why you want to become a contributor. DO NOT FORGET TO TELL US YOUR REASON! Otherwise we will expect you to not have read these guidelines and will deny your request!
6. What counts as fan art?
Characters that were or are in movies, T.V., or comic (Artwork that is not their's). Like The Lion King or Balto. Other shows where the characters are in animal form, like Bleach, Naruto, or Pokemon. Fanart of existing characters is allowed, but it is preferred you have at least one fancharacter in your submissions as well. After all this group is about creating your own characters.
That's it for now. I might add more points to these guidelines if things come up.
