~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~ Group Rules ~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~

Yes there are rules for this group
If you want to participate in this group here are the rules:

:star: You can submit any species of animals. Whether it's a shrimp or an Elephant, mouse or an Ostrich they are all accepted

:star: NO ONE CAN SUBMIT MORE THAN 1 DEVIATION PER WEEK. If you go above the requirement you will be suspended from the group(Sorry but we can't have like 100 deviations a day..I'm pretty sure no one wants that)

:star: Do not delete your submission correspondence. This is the only way you will find out whether your submission has been accepted, rejected, or expired. It will also tell you whether voting is still going on.Therefore, for your sake and ours, please do not delete it!

:star: The deviations can be ANY KIND OF MEDIA from photography to acrylics to any mixed media. However, for photomanipulations, you must prove links as to where you used the photo or stock.

:star: The deviation can have other objects around it but the animal must be the main focus of your piece! We will decline it if we feel like it is not the center of attention(this does not mean it literately needs to be in the center.) If you have negative space that might take away from the animal..crop it! Or add something to it that wont cause a lot of distraction to the main focus of the deviation.

:star: When you post a deviation, put it in the correct folder which it corresponds to. If you can't find the correct one or there isn't one for it to go, contact the cofounders or me.

:star: No mythical or fantasy creatures.. sorry I like them too but this is for real animals not fake ones. It can be any style of art as long as it portrays a real animal.

:star: The deviations cannot anything sexual. I know it's part of nature but there are deviants who are under the age of 18 and might not be exposed to this

:star: They deviations cannot show any sort of gruesome violence. It can be, for instance, a lion holding a carcass but not displaying a pool of blood or anything gross. As long as it doesn't make other people sick it is fine

:star: The deviations can be funny(like cat sitting on a couch holding a drink and watching tv) as long as the animal(If it is a photo of course) wasn't injured or harmed in any matter. It cannot display any disturbing behavior as well.

:star: No unfinished work. It must be the final product. It can be a sketch that you will not further develop onto but it must be clean and presentable.

:star: Respect others and their artwork. No cursing or swearing please. You can critique but try to say it nicely. For example, instead of saying "That picture sucks" or "It's horrible" say "I think it looks nice but you could improve it by... so and so"

:star: Have fun! This group is meant to meet other people who share the same interest and learn about animals. Who knows, you might find an animal that you've never seen before

Please let us know if you are having ANY problems:) I don't want you to have a horrible time in this group:(
Hello everyone!:)
I know it's been a while since we have posted anything, I apologize^^; I've been trying to come up with ways to make it livelier but I haven't thought of something creative or had the time to^^; If you guys have any suggestions let me know!:)

Anyways,  MauricioKanno is  inviting every writer in the world who cares about animals rights to submit your creations to him so he can publish a book about this issue! This book will be at least an e-book in Amazon, but hopefully he will be able to make a printed version as well.

You can send your literature now-January 31st 2014. The length of the text should be of about 8,000 characters (this includes spaces), which is around 1350 words without spaces, or around 2 or more pages. You can submit a longer length text or multiple works.

And make sure to know what he means by animal rights. He wants it to be in the perspective of an abolitionist, or vegan. Here's a link to what an abolitionist approach means:  :)
You can send your works to him by e-mail:  You can submit them on DA if you like but make sure to send it to him or let him know!:)

Furthermore, if you can contribute some money to go towards the publishing it would be great! He would expect that each participant be able to contribute a small profit to share the cost of the publication and its distribution.  He has had an experience of publishing another book during this year with many authors, and it cost a lot, therefore he has a little bit of money. But I think this is a great idea to do and support! I hope you all share the same thoughts as I:)

Each one payed  between 20 (standard) to 30 books each one - each book costing US$ 7,50 - , depending on the length/number of works published by him/her in the book. This would mean US$ 150 (standard) to US$ 225 for each one to pay (not including shipping). But you´ll get your money back (or maybe even gain money, it´s up to you) as soon as you sell your books.

He is thinking of using a crowdfunding system, but is not sure if this will be the best course to take. If this works better, it will mean you would invest less on this project! If you have any other funding suggestions let me know!

If you can't contribute in anything, it would be nice if you can share this around!:)

For more information, please contact him through his DA:

Have a lovely day/night!~

Expired submission? Anyone here???
Dlnarielle Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
We are here. I'm very sorry about that. Personal lives have gotten a bit hectic for a number of us, which sometimes means we are away from dA for a bit and miss submissions.

Sorry; due to family reasons, I have not been on dA. It will get accepted if you come back:)
