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

Items that will NOT be accepted include...
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)
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.
Items for Sale: Please submit for sale posts to
Photos of Pelts with No Work Done
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.
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.
