On to the Rules:

:bulletblue: Planning on joining? :bulletblue:

Then read below:

- If you want to add a submission to the group, then you must become a member.
- If you want to become a member, simply join the group and be sure that you follow all of the rules.

:bulletblue: Submitting Art: :bulletblue:

**There is a limit currently of six deviations per day. Please respect that, and the fact that this group is not going to crowd peoples' inboxes with images.**

Keep in your mind that this club is strictly for natural-based artwork with realistic boundaries and themes. The group will accept beasts of any kind, as well as nature scenes, as long as they fit within the criteria as follows:

- realistic or semi-realistic in markings/designs of the character(s)
- natural coloration used within the image (being that its roots are realistic) and on its subject(s)
- little to no amount of unnatural/unrealistic additions to the character(s) or subject(s) within the image (e.g. legwarmers, hairdos, ipods, skyscrapers, cars, etc.)
-humans are no longer allowed in the group, so don't try to submit one and expect it to pass
- no sexual content or anything beyond what's publicly "acceptable"
- realistic/semi-realistic anatomy and proportions would be preferably used (stylized with correct proportions to the actual animal is completely fine) *
- anything having to do with 'sparkle-animals', 'scene-animals', 'emo-animals', or anything of that sort will be denied upon receiving
- If you submit almost all of your new (or old) deviations for judging, it is more and more likely that any further deviations will be denied due to it seeming like you're simply trying to advertise everything you make -- which is discouraged.

Please also keep in mind to submit only your best (or preferably newer) artwork to the group.
Being that your artwork is in fact declined, then do your best to find a more suitable image (as your previously submitted one was more than likely not up to standards or breaking a rule), or just wait until an image better-suited can be posted.

Some tips:

- Be sure to have a proper amount of work done on your image --sketches, works in progress, reference sheets, and images that show no effort will be less considered to be approved. (so make sure that your images at least have color and a background)
- A full-body image would be preferred over a headshot or anything with less body--unless that particular portion was well detailed and effort is clearly shown.

To Submit:

- Browse the gallery; there should be a plus button by each folder.
- When you have found which folder would be appropriate for your art piece, you simply click the plus button and submit your piece. (be sure this is done, otherwise, it makes it harder on us and we may just remove/deny your submission)

**NOTE: the Fantasy category is not for unrealistically colored creatures; it is intended for beasts such as dragons, griffins, unicorns, and other mythical or otherwise unreal animals that have natural coloration to the species they're based off of. (e.g.: a unicorn would have horse-like markings and colors, not be pink with a rainbow mane; a griffin would have either big-cat markings/coloration or bird-based markings/colors --or both, a dragon would have reptilian coloration/markings or other animal-based markings/colors) **

Once again, follow the Rules and guidelines on what to submit. Absolutely no animals/scenery/etc may stray from the natural/semi-realistic borders we try to establish.

Lastly, please keep in mind that we do not care for:

Photo-manipulations (unless following standards)
Inappropriate material
Fan art (from movies, shows, games, etc.)
'Sparkle' art (or 'gloom', 'scene' etc.)

* If you do need assistance with your artistic anatomy and proportions, don't feel bad! There should be plenty here to aid you in what ever you may need help with, just ask!

Thank you for reading ~

I have submitted a number of works and ended up withdrawing because of a week passing. My most recent submission will be withdrawn tomorrow. Have left it for a week. Is there some problem with reviewing?
UnfortunateCorvid Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
For some reason, there haven't been any notifications for your submissions! I'm not sure if it's a glitch or what's happened. 
I'll personally submit some of your works into the group. Apologies that the group hasn't been as functional as it should be!

I wonder why the process of reviewing the submitted works has stopped?anybody in the charge?
Dylan-the-dude Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have a question. 
I read through some of the things posted and don't know if you guys accept anthromophic forms. Do you?
When I made my new fursona, holy crud, I spent around 5 hours of research on her. She's a kodiak/black bear. 
I have another question as well.
What about animals that have traits based on historical lore? What I mean by that is my bear has a lot of traits from Ojibwa, Navaho and Sioux background. What are your views on that?
UnfortunateCorvid Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry for the late reply!
No, I'm sorry, we don't accept anthros!  It's great to read that you've done so much research and have an interesting lot of traits about them.  However, we only accept feral animals. 
Dylan-the-dude Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
how about… 
I have one of my Ball Python looking like a diva for the camera
UnfortunateCorvid Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, photography of animals/nature is just fine!

Hi! Thank you so much for the request! I'd like to point out that the civet is better suited for the folder titled ''Other Carnivores Omnivores'' though, rather than the folder containing mustelid-rodent-and lagomorph-related work.
Civets are viverrids, a family belonging to Carnivora, so they are carnivores/omnivores and are not related to rodents or lagomorphs in any way, so unless both folders are made for small mammals in general, I'd suggest to change the titles a bit. Mustelids are carnivores/omnivores and belong to Carnivora as well.

This group is right up there with my interests, so it makes me really happy to see promotion of the world's vast variety of species!

Thanks for the request! :)
