We have over 10,000 members! Adorable Girl Anime Emoji (Heart Dance) [V6] by Jerikuto Hurray!

I'm very excited that this group has grown so much over the years. But of course that means lots of submissions coming in and so I'm looking for more contributors, too!

We need people to accept/decline submissions as well as sort images into the correct folders.

Applicants must be knowledgeable of the group's rules:…

Let me know if you're interested by commenting here or sending me a note.


Rules and Guidelines:

:bulletgreen: What we allow:

:pointr: Kemonomimi (humans with animal ears).

:pointr: Humans with robotic or fake ears and tails (Note: Eared hats with faces on them don't count).

:pointr: Paws or hooves on the back feet are allowed, but everything above the kneecap must be human.

:pointr: Slightly unnatural skin tones are okay (most warm colors and gray tones are accepted).

:pointr: Fanart, and original characters are both welcome. Gijinka/humanizations are allowed if they meet the kemonomimi criteria.

:pointr: Any type of art form (including photography, literary and CG).

:bulletred: What we do not allow

:pointr: No elf ears.

:pointr: No non-kemonomimi, anthropomorphic, furry, kemono*, modern anthro* or hybrid* characters
-Unless as a side-character or extra in the piece, but the kemonomimi character(s) must be prominent (see submission guidelines).

:pointr: No animal paws replacing the hands (paw shaped gloves are okay). Only animal back feet are acceptable.

:pointr: No animalistic features on the face (animal noses, snouts, etc.), minimal markings are okay.

:pointr: No fur or overtly unnatural skin color. Tattoo-like markings are acceptable.

:pointr: No hats with animal faces or animal masks. We must be able to tell the ears "belong" to the character.

:bulletblue: Submission Guidelines

:pointr: Submit regular illustrations to the proper folder sorted by ear type. For "special" art forms, please check for the corresponding folder.

:pointr: The animal ears must be clearly visible! We will not accept any kemonomimi characters with their ears cropped out of the picture.

:pointr: All submissions must be in their completed state. No WIPs, lineart, sketches, incomplete YCH auctions, etc.

:pointr: Submissions must show effort! No drawings on lined/graph/wrinkled paper. No photographs of a drawing or poorly scanned drawings.

:pointr: All work must be your own. No screenshots, avatars, etc. No art theft in general.

:pointr: No Tumblr "ask"s drawings, or text-heavy/watermark-heavy images (Deviant IDs, advertisements). Relevant Deviant stamps and memes are allowed.

:pointr: For group pictures that include non-kemonomimi, the kemonomimi character(s) must be in the foreground, and account for at least 1/3 of the group or more. This also counts for "adoptables" sheets and comic pages.

:pointr: No image dumps or batch adoptable sheets (the limit for adoptables is 8 per sheet).

:pointr: Try to keep photography artistic and tasteful (no selfies/social media type photos)

:pointr: Tasteful mature content is allowed (submit directly to the NSFW folder). No porn or sexualized depictions of underage characters.

:pointr: Please remove any works that you plan to place in storage. Also, remove any adoptable sheets that are no longer relevant to our group.

:pointr: Some promotional material is acceptable, but only if it meets the criteria above (focus on a kemonomimi character, minimal amount of text, etc.). We do not allow journal-based advertisements.

Questions and Answers:…

If you have any questions please ask in a comment below!

Please vote for which rule should be taken away:

Rule: No paws or hooves replacing the hands and feet.
What would change: Paws/hooves on otherwise human characters would be allowed. I'm also considering the option of at least allowing animal back feet (more common) but mainly debating the allowance of paws/hooves instead of hands (which gives characters more of a "furry" feeling to me).

Rule: No non-human skin color or fur.
What would change: I usually allow some unnatural skin colors such as grey or certain shades of pink/purple. However, disabling this rule would allow characters of any color (green, blue, etc) as long as their bodies are otherwise human. Also, SMALL amounts of fur would be accepted (patches in certain areas, such as the chest or sides of the face).

Rule: No animalistic facial features.
What would change: Human characters with whiskers and animal noses (not snouts), as long as their skin color and body shape were human.

Please discuss which rule you feel should be taken away and why. You can also mention which rule you think should stay and why. If you don't want to share any elaborate thoughts, please at least post the number of which rule(s) you want to see go or stay.

I will read everyone's responses and pick ONE rule to disable.

Thanks for your time, everyone!

This might be a silly question, but would a penguin kemonomimi be allowed? They have the penguin tail but no ears, so I wasn't sure. (here's the pic if it helps you at all! Grape-kun x Hululu)
