About This Group

Welcome to Animal Artisans!

please read our rules for submission and joining



:bulletyellow:What can I submit?
Here at Animal Artisans, we are focused on maintaining a clean and organized gallery for Taxidermy artisans and similar crafters that use taxidermy items. All skill levels are welcome and your submission will never be declined based on your level, we are here to create a friendly community for all artisans that enjoy this genre.

Below is a list of acceptable types of submissions

:bulletpink:Completed Traditional Taxidermy Works: Gameheads, Lifesize, Birds, Reptiles

:bulletpink:Completed Taxidermy Plush Works or "Soft Mounts"

:bulletpink: Rogue or Fantasy Taxidermy Works

:bulletpink:Complete Bone Works: European Mounts, Skeleton Articulation, Bone Crafts & Jewelry

:bulletpink:Completed Crafts and Projects that Include Fur, Leather, Feather, and Scale Products

:bulletpink:Picture Tutorials, Journal Tutorials and Journals seeking advice from other Taxidermists: If you submit content in the form of a journal, please make sure it is well constructed and articulated

:bulletpink:WIP Images of ANY of the Above Things: Please Submit These to the WIP Folder Only

Items that will NOT be accepted include...

:bulletpink:WIP Images that have had no work done to the item (ex. a picture of a factory form that has not been altered or prepped)

:bulletpink:Excessively Gorey Images: I want to keep it classy, so I am not going to allow this in this group as my own personal preference. You can try to submit a picture containing gore if you feel that it may present some value to the group. HOWEVER, it will be up to my (or my mod's) personal discretion whether we want to accept the image or not.

:bulletpink:Items for Sale: Please submit for sale posts to :iconfur-trading-post:

:bulletpink:Photos of Pelts with No Work Done

:bulletyellow:How should I behave?
Please be respectful to EVERYONE. It is important that we remember that as taxidermists and leather artists, we will receive protest from other DeviantART members. Keep conversations tactful and do not encourage flaming or 'feed the trolls'. Let administrators deal with them rather than antagonizing a volatile situation. Two wrongs don't make a right, and maintaining an image of professionalism and maturity is important.

:bulletyellow:How do I get featured?
Every week, each admin will be allowed to select one Deviation from the submissions to display in the Featured folder of the gallery. As more admins are added, there will be more opportunity to earn a Featured work. Only finished works can be selected for this folder.








Hi Everyone,

Well, I said I might do it...and I did!  The group is, at the moment, in working order.  However, I am still hammering out the last minor details.  If you would like to become a member and submit work, please feel welcome to do so!  Also, please share the group and invite friends!

As I get everything into place, please let me know if you notice anything setting wise that doesn't seem quite right so that I may fix it.  I have added a set of folders so far and will add more if it's necessary.  I've also tweaked the settings to allow automatic membership and 3 submissions per deviant, per section, per day.  I think that will be plenty.  

Please let me know if you would like to become an admin of this group.  I would like to get about five total deviants set up as administrators for this group.  Please also let me know if you have a group and you would like to affiliate with me!  

As a final thought, if you have suggestions for rules, or more to add to the page please include it in a comment or in a note to me.  :)

Thank you!
