About SplendidBeasts

:iconsplendidbeasts: is a group dedicated to animal anatomy, poses, pictures,
tutorials, photos, sculptures, and other useful resources. Any and all animal
-based artwork is considered.

Anyone can join, as long as you are interested in creating wonderful works
that involve animals in any way. We are also here to help you learn more
about animal anatomy. All types and mediums of art are considered, so let your WILD side show!

If you have a specific request for tutorials or other resources, feel free to note
the group or our founder, DharmaNow, and we will be sure to find you what
you need.



:bulletgreen: Be polite. Rudeness, trolling, or being malicious in any way to other members won't be tolerated.

:bulletgreen: Only animal or creature-based artwork is accepted. Humans can be in the
piece as long as they are not the sole focal point of the piece. Mythological half-human half-animals (centaur, sphinx) are also accepted, as well as any
other mythological creatures. We also take well-executed fanart.

:bulletgreen: Be willing to look at, comment on, and possibly fave new artworks. If you're
not looking for new art, this is not the group for you.

:bulletgreen: NO porn, excessively bloody work, or hate work will be considered.
Deceased animals will almost always be declined unless they are very, VERY tastefully and respectfully represented. There's other groups for your weird obsessions-- go give your art to them.

:bulletgreen: Only give us artwork that is YOUR OWN. If you have been found to have
stolen a piece, you will be promptly banned and DA will be informed of the theft.

:bulletgreen: Only submit your very best pieces. WIPs, lineart, and pieces drawn on lined paper etc will be declined unless they are EXEMPLARY. Badly scanned pieces, or badly taken pictures of works will be declined.

:bulletgreen: Photography will be accepted, but are not top priority. This may change as
the group gets bigger.

:bulletgreen: Last but not least, HAVE FUN!



:bulletgreen: Please submit your relevant pieces of art to theright folders! If you are
unsure of the meaning of a folder's name, click on the folder for a description.
There is currently a ten-per-week per member submissions limit.

:bulletgreen: Advertise this group wherever you go on DA so that more people will know
about it and join.

:bulletgreen: Introduce yourself! We'd love to meet you, and it's a great way to network, make new friends, and get your work out there!

:bulletgreen: Consider becoming a Contributor. The Contributors are responsible for
helping to take care of various things related to the group. This includes finding new members, speaking for the group, answering questions about the group
left in notes or on the group page, making sure things are in their correct categories within the galleries and moving them if they're not. Note the group
or DharmaNow if you want to become a contributor.

Thank you!! ~Sarah, Founder

I can't submit to the folder: even-toeds ? :blushes:
DharmaNow Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm sorry! What is it telling you? Like does it say it's full? Because I'm not getting an error
hiltja Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
If I click "contribute art" and want to choose the folder, it isn't there.
Maybe I am stupid :D but I tried it again, no even-toeds folder.
hiltja Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
and when I'm in that folder, there is no button to contribute.

Sorry, I hope you understand my poor english :D
