Just a rules update! Please ask if you have any questions!

★ We do not accept fancharacters. No Naruto, no Bleach, no MLP, no anything like this. Your OCs should be totally original, with no base on other people's creation.
★ We do not accept commissions you've bought from other artists of your OCs.
★ We do not accept drawings of other people's OCs. The submission must be your art of your OC.
★ We do not accept drawings of real people, either a famous one or your acquaintance or boyfriend.
★ We do not accept drawings of chibis or apparent females on Colored Illustrations and Characters or Monochrome folder.
★ We do not accept comic pages.
★ We do not accept WIPs.
★ We do not accept adoptables on sale.
★ We do not accept drawings in which there's no description or only tags, or nothing stating it's your original creation.

If you keep that in mind, then everything will be easier and your drawings will be really easily accepted.
Please refer to the rulebook and if you have any questions, just comment!

Thank you for your attention!

For folders explanation please refer to the complete rulebook

★ ★ ★

Your OC must be human!
Your character has to be human, resemble a person.

Accepted: anthro add-ons (ears, tail, wings, horns), elves, different skin colour
Not accepted: mer-boys, centaurs, furries, nagas, alienized creatures (extra extremities, paws, claws, half animal body), modified face that doesn't remind a human (a beak, an animals face).

1. What can you submit.
You can submit only own male original characters or illustrations with male characters. You must choose the appropriate folder, otherwise your artwork will be declined. If you are not sure where to submit, note us first.
Girls are allowed, but only with a male character as the focus in the picture.
Accepted: illustrations, drawings, profile sheets.
Not accepted: linearts, comic/manga pages, strips, memes, sketches, unfinished drawings, floating heads. (Doodles we consider unfinished!)

2. Folders are very important!
There are specific folders for each type of work. Make sure you put your works in the right place. Otherwise it's just headache for our crew to comment on every mis-lead piece [there's a bunch in one day, actually!].

3. Fanart and fan-based artworks are not allowed!
Characters that are based on an existing fandom, for example, Pokemon, Naruto, Twilight - must not be submitted!

4.You can submit 2 deviations per month.
Only 2 deviations can be submitted to the group gallery per month, so add just your best artworks! :]
We will announce if this changes!

5. About the featured section.
The featured section is managed by the admins choosing some inspirational works by some fantastic artists here in our group. The featured artist is showcased on the front page with the chosen artwork for one month.

6. No commissions, adoptables, art trades, collaborations!
Let's keep this group only for artworks with our own characters and ideas. Don't add if it only has a character of your friend or similar. This also includes adoptables you're selling - the moment you sell them, then they are not yours anymore!

7. Quality demand.
We are a big group and we have people saying they would like more good artworks, not lazy sketches or bad quality. Please, take notice and don't be offended if your piece get's declined - work harder and prove that you totally can do better!

8. No photography, manipulations
This place is only for digital and traditional art, or both mixed.

9. Drawings on bases are not allowed.
Please only entirely done by you pieces.

10. Mature content, gore, sensitive material.
Those are allowed, if the mature content filter is ''on''. No porn!

11. Remember to state that it's your OC in the artists comments!
If you don't, your submission will be declined. It's too troublesome to do research because of our long line. A simple 'character © me' is enough for us.

★ Affiliating with us.
If you want to affiliate your group with our's, it must have at least 85+ members and it can not be a fanart group.

Girly boys
And what about my girly boy, can I submit him in the group?
Answer: Of course you can, it's a boy after all! Yes for flamboyant, manly, geeky or any other kind!

I have some furry characters. Are they allowed in this group as well?
Answer: No. Please read the first paragraph in the rules section, it explains this matter.

I don't draw, I'm a writer actually. Am I allowed to post my written works here in the group?
Answer: I'm sorry, but this is a visual-only art group.

I have a female character but I made her in a male version, can I submit it?
Answer: No. Only real boys can be submitted.

My character is a ftm transgender. Can I submit him? Does he have to be submitted to transition surgery to be accepted?
Answer: Wow, absolutely no need for the surgery. If your character refers himself as a boy, that's enough for us. (that doesn't mean tomboy girls are accepted! Only real ftm trans!)

Adoptables bought by you
I have some OCs that are based on a previously bought adoptable design from another person. Can I submit them?
Answer: Yes, you can. Since you bought the design for your own OC, it's perfectly acceptable. The drawing must be done by you, though.

Deviation still not accepted!
Answer: Well. The line is long, some get to wait more then 2 or 3 weeks, because of the ginourmous amount of entries being submitted every day.

Expired deviation
OMG! My deviation has expired! How could you ignore it?
Answer: Sorry, this happens if huge amounts of deviations are being submitted and your piece drops down to the last pages. Sometimes we don't get in time to save them [expires after 1 month]. But do resubmit again, please. We will try to track it next time!

★ ★ ★
Other things

Reporting fanart: Sometimes we can't tell if fanart is submitted, `cause it's impossible to know every character there is out there! Right? :] So, if you spot fanart pieces in any of the galleries, note us telling in which gallery and link to the picture. We would really appreciate that.
More questions/suggestions/complaints?
Note us! We are really friendly, actually.

:happybounce: HeartHello, DeviantArtists! I'm deviantARTDasGnomo, the new Community Volunteer of the Design and Interfaces gallery. I'm currently open for DD suggestions in that area and Official Guidelines have been already uploaded to this journal:  Design And Interfaces DD Guidelines💪😎✌️ Powerful hellos to everyone! I'm @DasGnomo and I'm the Design & Interfaces Community Volunteer at @communityrelations, I'm in charge to bring to your awesome attention amazing DeviantART works via: features, articles and Daily Deviations! I'm a humble illustrator and graphic designer from Chile living in the US. I've been working on these areas for 13 years now, I'm happy and honored to have these new responsibilities (thanks to @ekud @Moonbeam13 and @JenFruzz for trusting in me for this). I'll work hard to do my best for the community! I'm extremely grateful in advance for all the DD suggestions you'll be sending me from this day on 🙏 however there are certain objective parameters that I'll take into account at the moment of featuring a Daily Deviation.I can only take suggestions from the Designs & Interfaces gallery and all associated sub-galleries/categories.Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313:How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation? Please send me ONE note per suggestion/artist/deviationThe artist/designer is still active on DeviantART (must be active for more than 30 days)The piece you are suggesting is not part of an ongoing contest (in such case, you should wait for the contest to end, in order to suggest it)The piece you are suggesting is not infringing DeviantART Copyright PoliciesPlease, let me know if you want to remain anonymous as a suggester; if you don't specify I will assume that you want your name listed on the DD feature.Please only send your suggestion to ONE community volunteer. Here is the list of all the CV's and the galleries they are in charge to feature.You can self suggest (explaining why you deserve to be featured in your note. Also, avoid the spam) and try to give preference to other artists as well.I'll list here some objective characteristics of a DD worthy Design & Interfaces deviation: High QualityOriginality/UniquenessFunctionality/Problem SolvingExcellent use of the basic elements of Design and InterfacesSend me a note with the Title: "DD SUGGESTION" with ONE suggestion only. Don't suggest by comments.Include the deviation's :Thumbcode: in the noteClick SEND. And that's it! 👍I won't necessarily answer to all the DD suggestion notes since sometimes they are too many to keep count, so featuring your suggested DD will remain as a surprise.Any suggested deviation can also be feature in futured journals, being a DD or not. So keep suggesting deviations, please.Remember to check today's Daily Deviations!Fav, comment and share this journal with your friends! 😘

I humbly invite you to check it out, if you got any amazing deviation in mind to be suggested, please send me a note.

Also, I want to invite you all to Mrs-Durden 's "I Challenge You" 2019's edition activity for a chance to win amazing prizes like 1 year core membership, points and more! Get in the "Design and Interfaces" category and you'll be receiving very interesting and great challenges from me! ;D

I Challenge You: 2019 EditionDear all,
The veterans among you may remember a huge challenge competition I first launched back in 2015 called "I Challenge You". The first time around, the premise was that deviants were paired up and would give each other a challenge to be completed within a deadline, for a chance to win a prize as a duo or trio. The second time around, each participant was assigned a Community Volunteer who would give them a challenge to be completed. 
If you're curious, you can go look at the old journals here and here. The second edition blew up almost immediately, if I recall we had around 300-400 sign-ups. Well, it's been years and it's time to bring back this challenge game again! I'll try to make it happen once per year, hence why this is "2019 Edition" ;)
The idea explained in a few wo

I'll be waiting for you all and have an amazing day today! :D Love
