Hello, and welcome to Original-Life!

Here we collect and feature Closed and Open Original Species!

Please be sure to look over the rules and the submission guidelines thoroughly before joining this group!

If you have a question, be sure to ask one of the admins for help. :3

Enjoy your stay! La la la la


We are NOT a regular adopt/art group. We ONLY accept art for closed and open species.

All other submissions will be declined without a word.

General Rules:

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Show respect for those around you. Do not harass/insult mods or your fellow group members.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Do not spam the admins, group, or other deviants.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Do not trace/copy/steal/scam/etc. Always credit bases with a link when they are used so you are not mistaken as stealing.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Always follow the creator's rules for a species with regards to content, trading, obtaining a character, etc.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Revolt/copycat species will NEVER be welcome here.

Submission Rules:

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] This group ONLY accepts original species. We do not accept one-off designs ( designs around which there is no world building or lore, but are simply unique designs you've made ), and we do not accept mythological creatures such as pegasus, unicorns, dragons, harpies, merfolk, etc. 

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Only 2 submissions per folder per day.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] We do not accept art containing pornographic images ( censored or not! ), hate speech of any kind, or other insensitive content.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Violent/non-pornographic mature works are accepted so long as they have the content filter on. Note that we only accept 'sexy' artwork if the description states the characters are 18+.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] ALL submissions should include credit to the species creator in the form of a link in the description, regardless of whether or not this is required by the species rules, and even if that species is your own. 
  • Example: Sparkle Cats closed species by username
Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Artwork of any species is permitted, regardless of whether or not that species' sheet is in the group, as long as it follows the above rule. 

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] We will ONLY accept adoptables of species whose reference sheets have also been submitted to the group.  This applies to all adoptables, including MYO sales, customs, DTA/WTAs, and raffles.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] All adoptables MUST include the word 'open' or 'closed' in the title to indicate whether or not they have been bought, and should be removed from the group when closed.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] YCH must specify that they are open to original species, and which ones ( 'all/any' is acceptable ) in the description, and, like adoptables, YCH must include the word 'open' or 'closed' in the title to indicate whether or not they have been bought, and should be removed from the group when closed.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Trade journals must specify that you are seeking/offering original species in the title, and should include the word 'open' or 'closed' in the title, and should be removed from the group when closed.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Commission journals/Commission sheets must specify that they are open to original species, and which ones ( 'all/any' is acceptable ) within the journal or within the description/sheet itself, and must also include the word 'open' or 'closed' in the title, and should be removed from the group when closed.

Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1] Outside of MYO, DTA, and WTA, we do not accept any form of contest or self promotion.

First of all I want to apologize for those who've recently been trying to post things to the group.
Originally there was a longer time limit for things before they expired.
Somehow I realized they got changed to 3 days. But I've fixed it.

In Face on the point of the journal.

Today in a few hours - I'll be having surgery on my right arm - and will not be able to use it for about 2 weeks. That means I won't be online to be able to accept submissions to folders etc - and sadly non of my Co-founders are active either, leaving me to be the ONLY person who's accepting things and running the group. I'm about to fix that though. Once I'm better, I'll be opening up some spots for people to help me with this struggle. The group is just too big and too active for me to run alone anymore.

With that said - Until I'm recovered - I'm going to post the submissions for AUTO ACCEPT until I return. I'm going to trust you guys to put things where they belong. But I feel its the only way to keep you guys from having wait for me to come back to accept things, as I have no one willing to help me run things till I return.

I'll only be posting the Auto Accepts until I return - Once I'm back it'll go back to being subject to vote unless I see things have gone smoothly then I may keep it, to keep the group from growing stagnant XD

Thanks everyone!
