How to Join:(Fair warning. If we ask a question about your work, it's usually because the answer will give us the ok to accept it or not. If you don't answer, it doesn't get accepted. Don't even try to re-submit it. We'll just decline it again)
It's pretty simple actually. Anyone can join, but you have to make sure you read the rules first as to ensure your success in the group. Definitely, it's a list you should read before joining/submitting. DF Rule Book:
~Please read them carefully.
If your art does not follow these rules upon submission, it will be automatically declined. I know that there are a lot of rules, but they are pretty simple to follow. And feel free to ask any questions concerning the rules and what's allowed! Do not, however, ask why your work was declined. All the possible reasons are detailed in the rules.
All submissions must be sent to the "Member Submissions 2020" folder and art for contests goes to the folders that indicate the specific contests. Do NOT submit to the "Featured Favorites" folder! 1)
Group focus: Dragons only. Any art that we receive are only dragons
. We Do Not Accept Art That Looks Like A Human In A Costume. Anthro designs that look more human than dragon will be declined.
We do not accept dinosaurs. They are not dragons. We focus more on classic dragons (eastern dragons, celtic/nordic lore, etc), and their possible hybrids IF they resemble more like the classics. Dragons containing the elements/features of other creatures will be accepted. We'll accept hydras and leviathans if they contain evident dragon-like features. Humans and other creatures can be within the artwork, but the focus has to be on the dragon. Dragon can't be faded into the background. 2)
2 submissions per week. No repetitive images. Choose ONE 3)
No art work that contains sexual themes or mocks other Deviants. ARTISTIC nudity is fine. NO vore. And please, NO over-inflation. Overweight characters are fine, but over-inflation is considered a fetish. Sexual fetishes in general will be declined. 4)
Please ensure that your artwork is nice, neat, clean, and easily visible. If it's difficult for someone to see, please don't submit it. No line paper from notebooks.
Please only submit your very best works; The ones you are most proud of! 4.5) Additionally, your artwork must be visible to all. If you submit a piece locked for watchers-only or behind the premium gallery-paywall, it will be auto-declined. No muss, no fuss, no discussion. 5)
NO WIPS (works in progress, unfinished art). All art must be completed. 6)
ART MUST BE MADE BY YOU! Art theft will NOT be tolerated. NO ALTERED IMAGES! To help us, please report any kind of stolen art that had/has been submitted to the group. Please only submit work you have made. Characters created by "doll makers" and etc won't be accepted. If there is an art piece a friend/commissioned artist made for you, you can request it be added to the group ONLY if it is the piece the original artist submitted. It cannot be added to your own gallery. This way the artist who created it can get the recognition they deserve. 7) Photography 1->
Made a trip to somewhere in the world and found a cultural dragon statue or a historical piece of dragon art!? Take a picture of your adventure/find and submit it.
Just be sure to list the location and country of your discovery. (Photos must be based in public parks, buildings, and out-in-public-statues.) They cannot be tiny little statues found in shops. Must be somehow historical to the town/place it is found in. Be sure to describe everything you learned on the description of the deviation.
~Photography 2/Costumes/Fursuits ->
Photography of anthrocon, comicon, and furcon dragons are allowed!
Have a suit? Sport it in some creative photography! No selfies! Accepted based on quality and creativity. 8) Literature -> as per rule 4, please ensure your art is nice and neat and submit the works you're proud of. For literature, this means submitting pieces that have been proofread and in which the dragons are easily recognizable. Adding a small explanation of the characters in the description is appreciated, but not a requirement as long as we can tell the dragons are dragons. If your chapter has a cover image, that image has to follow the main rules for art of this group.We will also no longer accept chapters of a story beyond chapter 1. Main reason is that we don't have the time to read through the rest of the story to make sure it has dragons, but also because we focus on visual dragon art. Chapterized stories are best uploaded in writing groups.
9) Monster Hunter and Pokémon.
Pokémon (and digimon) are allowed as long as they are dragons. For Monster Hunter, as the term 'Wyvern' is the in-game generic term for all the monsters, we will only accept those Wyverns that look like traditional ones: two wings, standing on two legs, barbed tail. Monsters with the type 'dragon' will be accepted by default.
