The Secret Art Style Club is about bringing together artists who have their own unique style. Not just unique, but styles with particular characteristics that are hard to quantify. It is art that focuses on unique character designs. Art that is expressive, cartoony, diverse and fun. We want to bring artists who have developed their own distinct, unique look. Stuff that isn't taught in how-to books or in tutorials online. We do not want manga art or art drawn the Marvel way. We want art that takes those styles and builds off of them. Anime has inspired a lot of artists to draw in that style, but we want artists who perhaps started off that way but made it their own. So anime-adjacent art is fine; regular manga art is not.
This group is invite only. Once you are a member, you have free reign to submit whatever you want, whenever you want within the DA group limits. Think you have a unique style and want to join? Send us a note and we'll review your gallery and get back to you. If you are not accepted, don't take it personally. That does not mean your are a bad artist or anything; just that it is not what this group is looking for. It is a highly subjective process to determine what is unique enough and what isn't. Furthermore, we are open to artists of a wide range of skill levels. Just be sure that your art has some level of refinement on top of just being unique. We are always excited to discover new artists who fit our criteria.
There is a certain style of art that doesn't really have a name or an easy way to describe it. Our goal, however, is to try and bring those artists and their work to one easy-to-find place: the Secret Art Style Club!
