FAQ #662: How do I create an Avatar, to display on my User Page and next to my Comments?
FAQ #214: What are DeviantArt's policies regarding avatars?
Please do not use copyrighted material taken off the Internet, such as celebrities, in your avatars. Doing so violates DeviantArt's copyright policies.
Potential members must provide a link to at least five (5) free avatars to apply in the join request. Make sure the avatars are clearly marked free either in the title or artist description. A link can be to an avatar folder or from a gallery search for the avatars.
Commissions do NOT count as part of the five, nor do any avatars that require points to use.
The Group does NOT accept "Lick" Avatars, NOR are excessively animated deviations accepted; i.e. avatars that could cause a seizure.
Absolutely NO "Mature-Rated" avatars, icons, stamps or dividers accepted.
Acceptable Avatars: 50 x 50 pixels or and 100 x 100 pixels for FreeDeviantsavatars.
Over-sized icons can be submitted to the stamp folder.
