Group Info


PLEASE submit art to the correct folder. Your art may be declined if it is not. An outline of the different folders is provided below. Relax; some categories are flexible.

Quality control: We are an elitist group. This does not mean that you have to be a professional artist for your art to be accepted. Other art may be accepted if it is thoroughly complete, well-presented, has a background, and you clearly put in serious time and effort. No sketch dumps, scraps, quick doodles, WIP’s, line art, or bad photos. Gallery-style art only; no comics, adoptables, tutorials, character sheets, etc. Do not submit multiple versions of the same piece. Art that does not meet our quality standards will be declined.

What counts as a mythical creature? All creatures must come from the Mythology of a real culture. Please do not submit creatures that you invented. Not all mythical beings are "creatures." Gods do not count unless they have shapeshifted into a creature. No robots, aliens, anthro/furry, or dinosaurs. No creatures from commercial franchises (i.e. Pokemon, etc.) All creatures must look different from normal animals or humans. Brownie points for under-represented mythologies, such as Native American, African, Southeast Asian, etc.

Group integrity: Use common sense. Do not steal other people’s art, berate other artists, submit porn, post anything racist or offensive, or do anything else that is stupid like that.


Featured – Admins’ select favorites. Members cannot upload art into this folder.

Dragons – European dragons and Asian dragons.

Birds and Griffins – Any mythical bird (phoenix, roc, thunderbird, etc.), as well as griffins, and other creatures that are predominantly birdlike.

Unicorns and Equines – Unicorns and related creatures (kirin, karkadan, etc.), as well as other mythical equines (Pegasus, Sleipnir, etc.) Centaurs go into a different folder.

Rare Reptiles – Mythical serpents, lizards, turtles, and any non-dragon reptile.

Dear Folks,

Thank you for all of your contributions.  As I have already let you know, I am starting a new life and can no longer spend time on DeviantArt.  I had already put out a notice asking for new admins, but since nobody has stepped up, the group is now closed.  Please enjoy browsing the galleries.

Hi, can i submit my piece from here?

Garuda AKA tigerish eagle by Entropician

In any case thanks for the attention and have a good day!
SkyJaguar Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2018
It depends.  Is this intended to be the same Garuda from Hindu mythology, who is half eagle and half man, or is this your own creature that is half eagle and half tiger?
Entropician Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2018  Professional General Artist
Hi thanks for the good question, yes of course it is "that" Garuda, but mine was more an interpretation of a possible animal avatar of him. An eagle with a tiger pattern on its body. Of course everything related to the fire element.  
SkyJaguar Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2018
I think it's okay then.  If it were not for the title then I wouldn't know what kind of being it was, but Garuda is on-topic.  :)
