The Nest...

Hello, and welcome to Avian-OCs. This is a group where all the birds of DA can show off their OCs and find others with similar interests. So why not pick a comfy perch and come hang with our flock for awhile?

Here are a few rules to go by:

:bulletblue: Only bird characters please; no gryphons, winged wolves, or other animals that are not birds. If the animal appears alongside a bird, then it’s perfectly acceptable.

:bulletblue: Only OCs (original characters), they can be your OCs or an OC you drew for someone else online (commissions, trades, gifts, etc). The goal of this group is to collect avian characters so please DO NOT submit generic, unnamed birds.

:bulletblue: We do accept fan characters, but please DO NOT submit canon characters from movies, books, games, and other media.

:bulletblue: We accept a wide variety of art, including but not limited to digital art, traditional art, crafts, comics, and icons. The only things we do not accept are photos, colored linearts, screenshots from games or movies, and NSFW art.

:bulletblue: Please do not submit traditional art that was drawn on notebook paper, or paper that is overly wrinkled or torn. Also, make sure that the drawing is not overly blurry or hard to see.

:bulletblue: We DO NOT accept stolen art under any circumstances. If you're caught submitting stolen art, you will be permanently banned from the group.

:bulletblue: Be respectful and polite to all the birds in our flock. We do not accept hate art or affiliate with hate groups.

:star:All submissions to our group favorites are automatically accepted, with a limit of five per week. Unlike our gallery folders, we accept random birds and canon characters from books, movies, and other media into our group favorites. However, please refrain from submitting gryphons or other hybrid creatures.:star:

Inspiring Avian Art, from traditional to digital...
Wow, it's been a long time since this group posted any journals, hasn't it? ^^; I just wanted to drop in and let everyone know that a few changes have been made to the group folders. We've done away with the Natural Species and Fantasy Species and/or Colors folders, as well as the Sketches folder. I found a lot of people were confused about which folder to submit to, and it didn't really help new members navigate the group any better ;P So now we have two new folders, Digital Art and Traditional Art, which I feel are a lot simpler and easier to understand. Keep in mind that all anthro art still goes in the Anthro folder.

I thought you would dig this drawing of my boyfriend's goose character, Rubble, I did. :>

Sorry, I submitted to digital art instead of anthro!! ;   ;

I am unable to submit to the traditional art folder. Though I don't make digital art, I should also note that the new digital art folder is not an available option either when I try to submit.

Oops, I forgot to fix the settings when I created the new folders ^^; Thanks for letting me know, it should work now :)
ceruleanmacaw Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
