We offer, help, critique, tutorials and a nice place for members to submit their art.

Everyone is welcome into this group, the more the merrier! Only click on the upper left button "Join" and its done!

Artists who out stand either on their art or on their participation in this group will be featured for 2 whole weeks! You can find the Featured Artist on Anthro Nexus Front page.

Requesting Help/Critique
Not available at this time. We are lacking enough active mods to handle these requests. Perhaps sometime in the future!

Currently unavailable.

Submitting Art
Every member has the option of submitting their anthropomorphic work to the Anthro Nexus gallery for everyone to see and enjoy. When submitting your work you will see many different categories. If you are not sure about the category your pic fits into you may read the "Folder Guidelines" in one of the sections below.

Global Rules for Submitting:

:bulletred: Only finished* works are accepted. (*Finished work pertains to work that is coloured or grayscale. Finished works that are "sketches" are not considered finished to us. Grayscale images that are sketchy but have decent effort in shading/detail may be accepted if the maids think it is ok!)

:bulletred: Bases: If you are using someone else's base, we hope to see colouring and shading go along with it. Otherwise it will be predominantly someone elses work (regardless of it being free to use.)

:bulletred: Collaborations: There are welcomed as long as the following are met: 1) You aren't using a free base and calling it a collab, the parts of the image must be done specifically for the submitted image. 2) Must state its a collab in the title 3) What each artists did must be stated and icons/links back to all artists that participated must be in the description!

:bulletred: We are a group for biped/two legged anthros with the occasional exception for Taurs and aquatic/marine anthros. Human characters with animal ears and tails (kemonomimi/ "cat girls or boys") are not accepted here. Submissions featuring ANY non-anthro (ie humans, kemonomimi, animals) will only be accepted if there is an anthro character as the main focus. It is up to the maids to decide if it belongs or not!

:bulletred: Only 2 submissions per week to avoid over flood.

:bulletred: Do not submit artwork to the featured folder, only the maids can choose the artwork that will be featured in the group.

:bulletred: Do Not submit work that is done on lined paper or is photographed unless it is an Integral part of the picture. We require that images be 'cleaned' up before submitting. Even if its on purpose, it is up to the maids weather it gets accepted. Please understand this!

:bulletred: Deviations found "In Storage" Will be removed to make room for others~ :3

:bulletred: Literature CAN be submitted but please keep in mind that they end up in the queue for much longer then visual art as we have to find time to read, confirm there are clearly described anthro characters and that the content follows DA's rules and ours. Often times they EXPIRE because we get too many submissions to go through.

:bulletred: Mature content is put up at the mods discretion. If we feel the subject matter is not suited for the group, it may violate DA's rules or the content is cropped or unclear, then it may not be accepted! Rules about Censors and External Linking

Hello all Anthro Nexus Members, I have sad news.


We are NOT deleting the group but we are turning submissions off and keeping the group around for archival purposes: There are a lot of memories here.

(any submissions that come in before we turn the submissions off will be approved or declined as usual.)

For the last handful of years, it has been just me and AlliNix moderating this group. While other mods are still listed, they have not been active for a long time. We've tried reaching out to other potential mods and unfortunately it's just not happened. We've talked about this off an on for years now but it seems it is time.

We are burnt out and with a group this large, we spend crazy amounts of time just approving artwork (even with the 2 per week limit) and answering questions or declining the same people who haven't understood our decline explanations for months and in some cases, years. Moderating this group is a lot of work and Alli and I have only just been able to get things approved/declined and have not had time to do much in the way of community engagement (and the few we have, we've gotten little to no community input.) Lots of items expire when Alli and I have busy times in life and it's not fair to you guys. 2 mods for a group of over 2000 members is crazy.

This group was the brain child of nanzdraws (previously dawniie) and alongside Memokkeen, Poppita, Katyenka-Svetlana, Lili-Tea, CommissionAngel, TurtleLeaf, ShellShockFlame, myself and our newest mod (whom is the reason the group has existed this long) AlliNix, we created something I think we can be super proud of. (Hopefully i didn't miss anyone.) This 8 year old group has been through a lot and it has created lots of networking between artists, showcased artists of all kinds and we had a good run of community driven events and contests back in the day.

We've all grown in these past 8 years and while friends have come and gone and life has gotten busier, this group has been an amazing experience.

It is sad to see it come to this, but life goes on.

Thank you all for your support and your submissions! You made this group amazing!


Signing Off,
Temrin & AlliNix
