PLEASE READ THESE GUIDELINES BEFORE SUBMITTING ART.
DO NOT SUBMIT TO 'FEATURED'. Any other submissions will be declined.
The theme of this group is storytelling. Therefore, we will ONLY accept art which expresses a concept, idea, story, scenario, etc. No character sheets, no manipulations, no lineart, no stand-alone portrait shots, nothing that does not in some way tell a story or illustrate a concept/idea/sentiment. It is generally preferred that, if it's not self evident, the concept be described in the artist comments. No mature content will be accepted.
Sketches are acceptable. However, we do not encourage half-finished pieces, stick drawings or five minute doodles done in Paint. Bases are not permitted as we believe that the storytelling capacity using base art is limited.
Stories which are entirely text are not accepted. This group is dedicated to visual appreciation. All comics and illustrated short stories are welcome.
This group is dedicated to the entire Lion King universe, which includes canon and semi-canon characters. Original characters fitting into this universe (Nala's dad and other family tree members) are acceptable within canon-context. Entire new prides, or original characters by themselves, are not.
Please submit art to the correct folder. If unsure, leave a note asking. Art submitted to incorrect folders will be declined. All declined art will be accompanied by an explanation - so feel free to rectify the problem and resubmit.
A note on comics -
If it's led by an OC character or characters, with no/minor/occasional interactions with semi-canons or canons, that is not acceptable. If it is OC characters, or starts with an OC character, but is gearing towards a mostly canon or semi-canon cast within a few pages, and will actually ultimately be led by a semi-canon or canon, it's acceptable.
In short: canon or semi-canon with OC support is fine, but OC with canon or semi-canon support is not fine. Canon/semi must be the focus.
