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.

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.  :)
nilwill 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
