Well, my friend, you have come to the right place. You are just a click away from discovering more about art media especially Dragon Cave dragon sprites. Here at the DC IRC #arts channel you will encounter fellow artists who can tutor you in different styles of art media. Our main focus is to give constructive criticism to help guide your projects to completion.

We are here to to post advice and critiques for all your artsy needs. Our users can help with anything ranging from sketching, redlining, sprite-lining, flat-coloring to shading dragon pixel art. Some of us also dabble in other forms of art too so questions about that are also welcome.

If you need more one on one help but don't want to post a comment or leave a note, you can always click the emerald green Loki Dragon. You will be taken to our IRC channel where you will find many artists chatting and willing to help with whatever your needs are.

:bulletorange::bulletyellow: How to Join :bulletyellow::bulletorange:

All you have to do is click "join" at the top of the page. However, there's some criteria you must meet before you are admitted.

Once an admin sees a new join request they will accept it when they can. Leave a nice little intro why you want to join and please include your Dragon Cave scroll. If you are not a member of Dragon Cave please state that in your message instead. We will always accept members who leave us their scroll name!

Acceptable:
  • Your scroll name.
  • A link to one or more dragon concepts you are working on.
  • A sample of other Dragon Cave related art.
  • A reasonable reason for wanting to join.

Not Acceptable:
  • A link to your dragon eggs instead of your scroll name.
  • Beg to join such as "Let me join this group please!!!"
  • Leaving the message completely blank.



:bulletyellow::bulletgreen: Group Submissions :bulletgreen::bulletyellow:

Dragon Cave or dragon related art is preferred, but if you have other works of art you want to show off, you must place each deviation in the proper folder, just to keep things organized. Not following this rule will result in a ban from the group after three warnings.

Permitted:
  • Dragon Cave or Dragon related art.
  • Non-Dragon related art.

Not Permitted:
  • Anything over PG13.
  • No nudity (no shirts on males are okay).
  • No violence (showing weapons are allowed).
  • No sexual poses (cuddling and kissing is alright, if tasteful).
  • No foul language.


We are currently allowing all members to submit art in the following Featured section folders:
  • Sprites
  • Digital Media
  • Other Media
  • Non-Dragon Works

If we feel the art should be featured on the main preview, we will update that ourselves.

:bulletgreen::bulletblue: Extra Notes :bulletblue::bulletgreen:

We are not actual Dragon Cave admins and cannot approve any dragon concept into dragon requests. If you need help with getting your concept approved you will need to speak with an official Dragon Cave moderator. We also can't guarantee your concept will make it to completion or even in cave. We are here to lend a helping hand in trying to make your concept the best it can be.

If you see anything that could be improved, or if you have any additional information that is not mentioned in the group page, please message any of the admins!


:bulletblue::bulletpurple: IRC Chatroom :bulletpurple::bulletblue:

The group chatroom is a place where all members and non-members of dADragCave can freely chat with one another! Once inside of our IRC chat, all Dragon Cave rules apply except mild swearing is okay. Read the MOTD and you should be good to go.

Alright well I have no idea why the Magma one isn't working, I am going to make a WIP area for stuff since you have MANY. I also set the limit to 3 per week because it's a bit over whelming getting many deviations from ya. I think you should try again in a week it might solve the problem then.
