Conclave Monstrōrum (Latin) - Conclave of Monsters

Monster (n.):
~ Early 14c., "malformed animal or human, creature afflicted with a birth defect,"

~ directly from Latin monstrum "divine omen, portent, sign; abnormal shape; monster, monstrosity," figuratively "repulsive character, object of dread, awful deed, abomination,"
~ from root of monere "warn" (see monitor (n.)). Abnormal or prodigious animals were regarded as signs or omens of impending evil.
~ Extended by late 14c. to imaginary animals composed of parts of creatures (centaur, griffin, etc.).
~ Meaning "animal of vast size" is from 1520s;
~ sense of "person of inhuman cruelty or wickedness" is from 1550s.
~ As an adjective, "of extraordinary size," from 1837.
~ In Old English, the monster Grendel was an aglæca, a word related to aglæc "calamity, terror, distress, oppression."

Hello members and visitors,
For three years, Conclave-Monstrorum has been an amazing forum for creature art and the things that haunt the darker corners of our mind.  It's been a privilege administrating this group, and a greater privilege viewing the amazing art that has been submitted to our galleries.
That having been said, all things must pass.  Our groups founder has not been seen in 110 weeks and, in the time since, I have been running the group solo, without access to many of the higher-level administrative functions for the group.  This includes the ability to create new folders, and those that were originally made for the group are now filling up.  In addition to this, times have changed, and I no longer have the free time I once did for group administration.  I would hope that this group has provided the quality presentation that this community's art deserves - and, since we are no longer able to provide this level of service, I have chosen to close the group.  The group will not be deleted (I hope it will continue to provide publicity to the great works we have received), but we will not be accepting any new submissions at this time.
It has been a pleasure hosting your wonderful work, and I wish all of you continued success in your artistic endeavours - creeptacular or otherwise.

Your humble administrator,

PS:  I recommend that those of you who have enjoyed our works might consider adding some of our members to your Watchlist.  That way, you can keep current with their dark and delightful creations.

Is this group still active? :)
Djake Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
"Active" may be a strong term.  ^^;  I haven't heard from the group founder in quite some time, and my own free time is limited - but I do try to keep up with submissions.  Depending on my own life events, it may be a couple of weeks before submissions are excepted - but we're still more than happy to accept submissions, if you don't mind the wait-time.  :)
TeroPorthan Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2018   Digital Artist
Oh ok! :D Thank you for the info! :D
Djake Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for the interest! :D
By the bye: I noticed that one of your submissions expired while I was away. Please feel free to resubmit. I’ll make it a point to pop in around the end of the week, to take care of the latest delightful horror show from our members - so you won’t have as long to wait this time.

Is this group still functioning?
Djake Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, we're still up and running - though, with only two active admins, it does sometimes take awhile to process entries.
nilwilnil Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2017
Not sure where to put this, people see different monsters in it - Subtle Animation
Djake Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm...  My vote would go for the Monstrōrum folder, as it seems to be one of those wonderful pieces that defies categorization.
By the bye:  feel free to use the Monstrōrum folder for any images for which you're unsure of the right category. It's sort of our "Miscellaneous" or "other" category.

PS:  Thanks for taking the time to check before submitting randomly!  It does save us some hassle.  :)
nilwilnil Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2017
Thanks for taking the time for an explanatory response, Monstrōrum it is then :] 
A lot of my monsters seem to fall between categories. This one is kind of a random experiment that I and others found a bit monstrous so I thought it was worth submitting. 
Djake Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, normally we wouldn't feature abstract work, but the premise behind this one works well for the group - that whole "Look long enough into the abyss..." scenario.
Personally, I saw a couple of dwarves in it - but that's probably too much fantasy roleplaying coming through in my psyche.  :D
