Today I finally got notified by dA that there are submissions waiting to be accepted as old as from 4th of April. I'm sorry for the delay, the system by which dA notifies me seems to be glitchy. If any of your submissions expired in the meantime, please enter them again
I'm sorry for being late with submissions, and I'm not sure if I was too late for some. so if your submission expired please submit it again.
After the heavy rains in Germany I was out of power for thee days, and after that deviantArt was not my first priority. after that I was on vacation for two weeks.
Now I'm back and try to keep up with submissions better again.
See your around and keep being kreative!

Fightin' Females!

Fightin-Females is a collection of art featuring fictional female characters in convincing compact attire and in non-sexualized poses. As a fan of fantasy and art, I often find myself being hesitate to read comics or watch shows with a female protagonist because it seems inevitable that the writers and artists will sexualize the character out of context for the sake of fan service. Well, I'm tired of it so here is a collection of female characters not doing just that!

To join Fightin-Females all you have to do is click the "Join Our Group" button at the top of this page. Join requests are automatically approved.

:dalogo: Some Helpful Guidelines about Submissions :dalogo:

Fightin-Females is about promoting what is convincing concerning armor and costumes on female characters, not necessarily what is practical. Fantasy should take liberties with realism to allow for artistic variation.

:Fireworks: by vita-lunaAccurate Female Anatomy: This group is for beginners, hobbyists and professionals but we don't accept over-exaggerations in anatomy for the sake of "sexy." To give some examples of what we do not accept:
:bulletred: Plus-size boobs or ass sizes especially combined with a tiny waist.
:bulletred: Boobs that are perfectly round even without support, a.k.a "balloon boobs."

knight emote by budgieishereConvincing Armor & Clothing: A circumstantial requirement that depends on the theme and setting the character is in. Even so, there are a few things as listed which do not make sense if a woman is engaging in combat.
:bulletred: Strapless bras or otherwise minimal support for breasts: Can your character do jumping-jacks in her outfit without causing a boob to fall out?
:bulletred: Boob Shaped Armor: Metal armor crafted to allow each boob to fit into its own pocket. Examples of boob shaped armor & boob socks
:bulletred: Cleavage Holes
:bulletred: High-heels
:bulletred: Minimal Metal/Plate Armor: Women fighting with lethal weapons shouldn't have belly openings or bikini armor.

:bulletgreen: Nudity and immodesty is not considered to be sexualization. For example, there can be female barbarians who aggressively fight topless.

:archer: by BobSmith006Non-Sexual Poses & Angles: In general, submissions which feature women being sexually alluring rather than combat ready will be declined. This includes provocative poses in which a woman's ass, boobs or crotch is the primary focus of the submission. A few named poses we look for and do not accept:
:bulletred: The Ass-Boob Pose: This pose involves crudely or creatively twisting the spine to somehow keep both butt cheeks and boobs in view. Examples of Ass-Boob pose
:bulletred: The Centaur Pose: This pose involves bending a woman's spine, to a 90 degree angle at most, to make the boobs or the butt more perky. Examples of Centaur Pose

:bookdiva: About the Folders :bookdiva:

Anthropomorphic Fantasy: The same as any fantasy but characters have animal or monstrous features.

Historical Fantasy: A subgenre of Fantasy which sets itself in moments of human history. Although Historical Fantasy is not required to be historically accurate, it is more defined by no, or at least very little, magic or other supernatural things. Historical Fantasy often asks the question of what could have been if historical events went differently. In other cases, Historical Fantasy simply adds a touch of exaggeration and romanticism to past settings or events.

Modern & Sci-fi: This folder combines two types of fantasy. Modern fantasy is more defined by contemporary setting and issues which are not required to be realistic or truthful. Sci-fi tends to set itself in the future and looks to human innovation for adventure. It is often visually represented by exotic and advanced technology.

Superheroes & Villains: A type of contemporary fantasy that deserves separate consideration for costumes. Superheroes and their villains have a long history of form-fitting clothing for the exact purpose of displaying an athletic body on both male and female characters. While female poses and body types in superhero stories are often sexualized, the silly costumes can happily be accepted as a style. However, boob socks, high heels, thongs, strapless bras and cleavage holes are all still not accepted.

Barbarians: A special exception to the no minimal metal/plate armor requirement in the guidelines above. Barbarians are all about being lewd, crude, and aggressive. They tend to be visually defined by lacking armor often as a result of their own recklessness and desire for violence. As a long standing class in fantasy, female barbarians are welcomed here. Keep in mind that barbarians are not excused from any other guidelines above.

:skullbones: Disclaimers :skullbones:

:bulletred:Fightin-Females is not about promoting modesty. We have nothing against nude models or sex and the women who choose to engage in those activities. We also have nothing against artists who do draw nude women, exaggerated women or who draw porn. This group is about addressing the common practice of sexualizing female characters out of context.

:bulletred:We're not responsible for the content in any of our Friends Away from Home links. We're also not responsible if you happen to find your art there.

:bulletred:Fightin-Females does our best to not use art that is already featured in DeviantArt by the original artist for our journal entries. However, it's impossible to check all of DeviantArt and oversights are bound to happen. Should you happen to find your art in our journal entries and would like us to take it down simply let us know.

Hey, make sure you set your group admin permissions to "Subject to Vote" or "Are Not Allowed". There has been two notorious group hijackers for over a month now who apply as a co-founders, delete all the artwork in the gallery and favorites, and replace it with gore, scat and porn.
As an example:…
(the disgusting stuff has since been removed, but the galleries have been completely wiped out)

Hai, Im confused since I cannot add any more works to the group this week. It says I would exceed more than 3 per week while it's not true. Last time I upload was over week ago (I do once a week).
