What you need to know

:star: ABOUT :star:
A group focused on artworks created based on stylization, simplified or exaggerated forms with an animal thematic.


:star: Rules :star:

:bulletblue: There is no limit for deviations submitted yet, as the group is still growing. Feel free to upload as much you want for now.

:bulletblue: We look for a certain level of quality on the submissions so not every work may be accepted. Don’t feel bad if your works don’t get approved right away. One of the purposes of keeping the group somewhat restricted is to inspire people to improve their artwork.

:bulletblue:Our approval system is based on votes coming from the staff, which were individually selected based on their knowledge on the subject.

:bulletblue:The works uploaded here do not necessarily need to be full of details or have backgrounds, but it does need to have some sort of effort put into them –mainly on the design, stylization, shapes and such . It must be a finished piece however.

:bulletblue: Your submission will be judged based on originality, drawing, appeal and etc.

:bulletblue: We normally don't accept Fanart.

:bulletblue:Copied and stolen work will obviously not be accepted.

:bulletblue:Submissions MUST go to the appropriate folder, so pay ATTENTION to those. We may re-locate it to you, but if you pick a moderator that is not feeling like doing so, it may also be rejected.

:bulletblue:Submissions must not contain explicit content, such as pornography.

:bulletblue: Anyone can join the group, even if you do not create stylized work that often.

:bulletblue:Try to submit only your best works. We discourage generic designs, as we’re looking to build a rich gallery.

Hey, sorry for the late reply. I've been taken down with a mystery illness, busy with work, and I think the other members are busy, too. As soon as I'm well enough/free, I plan to update the journal with the votes for triceratops and they'll still get their 2 month feature, but unless another member can take over the bulk of responsibilities of the challenges, I think that might be the last one for a little while.

Awh, that's a little sad but I totally understand it. It's a lot of work with so little participation ^^'
Hope you will feel better!

Hello! I would also like some feedback on why my work was declined? These two pieces - cottoncritter.deviantart.com/a… and cottoncritter.deviantart.com/a…
I’m honestly just confused because my other similar artwork have gone through fine before. Just wondering! Thanks in advance. ;o;

Hey there! Yah, you are totally right, some of these went through fine before. But that's sort of the thing, we've seen that dolphin before! The dolphin is ideal for our group, but to have a group full of the same kind of stylized animals is not part of our group's aims.
The second piece, however, I chose to decline because the cramped pose and composition made it hard to see the stylization choices. That's not to say at all the piece is flawed, only that it's more a nice artwork than an exploration of stylized animal anatomy which we can learn from and appreciate for stylization's sake.
