When I initially announced that OCArtists would be closing, I figured after a couple of months of no new members, things would die down. Nope! It's been a year since then and the group is still going too strong for the time I have available for it. So, since this zombie group just won't die on its own, I'm afraid I'll have to kill it myself. Submissions are now closed.

Thank you all for the many years of wonderful OCs! This group kept me coming to dA far longer than I otherwise would have, and it is because OCA is my only reason to be here that I must close it, so that I can move on to greener pastures and put more time into my own art.

If you're looking for an alternative to OCA, check out :iconthought-up:, which I also featured last year. It's an actively-moderated group with a similar scope to OCA.
