Welcome to the Art Of The Paw And Fang!

Our mission statement: We are a community where advanced, experienced and gifted artists share quality wolf artwork. Established March 8th, 2004.

What do we mean by quality? It might sound unfair, but members must submit work that has obvious noticeable effort and ability in regards to; anatomy, golden sections, quality of lines, backgrounds and fulfilled intent.

Why do we have this? So each deviation submitted will be something worth viewing. Joining our group means you have the confidence and talent to meet our goals. If you think you're good enough, you're encouraged to join!

Everyone is invited to WATCH our group, everything in our gallery is excellent.

Requirements to Join
:bulletgreen: In your request, give us the links to 3 pieces that are the best representation of your work and ability. Choose carefully and follow the submission standards below.
:bulletgreen: Those who do not submit 3 examples invite our admins to judge your membership based on your gallery, or are subject to their membership declined.
:bulletgreen: Wait for group acceptance. Sometimes our Alphas can take a few days to make a decision. If you are declined this time around you are free to try again at a later date.
:bulletgreen: To avoid HOAX accounts, we require your membership with deviantArt be more than 6 months.

We Do Not Accept
:bulletgreen: We do not accept traces or screenshots.
:bulletgreen: No messy sketches or notebook drawn images.
:bulletgreen: No vore, fetishes or hard porn, for God's sake have some dignity.
:bulletgreen: Hate pieces or anything slandering others have no place here.
:bulletgreen: Sorry, no photography or literature, however this could change.
:bulletgreen: Admins reserve the right to decline posting artwork that they feel is not suitable or finished enough to be posted. Hopefully this will give all of us the incentive to do our best and give wolves the beautiful representation such magnificent creatures deserve.

Submission Standards
:bulletgreen: Submissions must be your work.
:bulletgreen: We accept wolves, wolf-like dogs such as huskies malamutes and other Nordic breeds, coyotes wild breeds and mixes of all of these are welcome. Werewolves are welcome in the specific folder. Hybrids should contain noticeable wolf anatomy. Alphas can decide acceptance on a case by case basis.
:bulletgreen: Gore is welcome (if you're 18 or over).
:bulletgreen: Nudity is welcome if done in good taste (again if you're over 18).
:bulletgreen: Fan Art of characters is welcome (Balto, White Fang, etc.) as long as you credit your sources per Deviant Art rules. Copyright laws will be upheld. Document all inspirations correctly.
:bulletgreen: Limit your submissions to 1 or 2 at a time. Why? We promote quality over quantity and less is more. Consider what the watchers want to see.
:bulletgreen: Line art must still be a finished render, clean crisp lines are a must, because of the lack of content anatomy needs to be well done on these pieces as flaws will show up easily.

We invite you to visit our Sister Group

Summer 2020 & Eclipse

:bulletgreen:  2022 update:  We are still an active group, we check things every few days or so, but we do not have any group activities planned. You are still welcome to join, submit art, and please let us know if you have any issues or questions. Understand it might be a few days until we respond.  (posted September 2022)
:bulletgreen:  Eclipse Changes:  Eclipse has fallen upon us, and it's going to change a lot. I don't sign on much, and Dezigre signs on when she can. Every other admin is inactive, so art might not get accepted for a day or two. There will be no group activities planned until after I get used to this new format, and we can get some help around here. Sorry for the lack of participation, this is not ever where I wanted to take these groups. (Posted June 2020)
:bulletgreen: I post new journals every season, the holiday season, and as needed. Most will have a few recent submissions FEATURED to reward our active members with better visibility. There is a MEMBER section of our journal, and you may request we add something there, or suggest a item for WOLF NEWS. (posted June 2019)
:bulletgreen:  We have two new LT. Alphas, Dezigre and SekiiRei, please give them your understanding as they get used to administering this group. (posted June 2019)
:bulletgreen:  We are looking for ArtOfThePawAndFang related submission to display in our blogs and front page. You may use our logos, mascots or any other group identifiers. Submit to the appropriate gallery, and send us a Group Note giving us permission to use as a club ID. (posted June 2019)

:bulletgreen:  Therapy wolf program Who's with me on this? I'd have benefited from therapy wolves a few years back!
:bulletgreen:  Wolf Park is an education and research facility located in Battle Ground Indiana. Since 1972, we have studied wolves and other wild canids to learn more about their behavior and assist researchers in the wild. Each year we teach thousands of visitors about the importance of predators in the ecosystem. We assist researchers around the world with studies of subjects including cognition, behavioral, and comparative between wild and captive animals.

:bulletgreen:   If you're a member send a group note for consideration in advertising your or your group activity here.
