Group Info

A group for original monster characters and species.
Show us your beastly brainspawn!

Regular animals and humans are not allowed, but monstrous, mutated, or horror themed versions are welcomed.
(Please note, alternate colouration or the addition of wings, et cetera, to an animal (whether quadrupedal or anthropomorphic) or human is not considered submittable content to this group in particular. Simply wounded or bleeding animals also do not qualify. Please do not take offense, we have nothing against your work, we simply don't feel it fits with the theme of the group.) Images including both creatures and humans or regular animals may be accepted, but the focus must be quite clearly on the creature.

All forms of art are accepted, mature content is allowed if properly marked.
However, images featuring overtly sexual content will not be accepted, nor will images found to be done in poor taste or made to offend.

We do employ quality control; no sketches or poorly scanned/cropped art. Complete pieces which show clear effort only. For the most part, we will no longer accept linearts in the main gallery unless they are extremely detailed. A favourites folder exists for linearts and works in progress.

For writing, please submit only polished pieces.

Members may submit two deviations per folder per day at this time. Submissions to Featured are one per month, please submit your best here.
All submissions to the gallery are voted on.

Staff members can submit more, but holding an administrative position comes with the task of helping accept works into the gallery, requesting other artist's work and inviting like-minded people.
If this interests you, feel free to send a join request to be a contributor, stating how you'd like to assist our fledgling group. If you are inactive in the group for a long stretch of time, you will be reverted to a regular member. If you do well in your role as contributor you may be invited to be a Co-Founder.
Let's see if we can make it into something special. ♥

Submit as much as you want to Favourites, but keep it with the theme of the group. Submissions to Favourites are automatically accepted.

Do not advertise in our front page comments!
Please note the group if you feel you have a contest that fits our group theme. We will make a journal featuring your contest if we agree it fits.

I would be very grateful if anyone has time to help run this place as an admin. I'm very busy with my baby and imagine I will be until he's school-aged, so any offer would be very much appreciated.
Please resubmit all expired submissions. I was very ill with my pregnancy and unable to be online. Only recently have I gotten well enough to once more check the computer with any frequency.

I believe the bulk of my moderators have also left/needed to take hiatuses, so please do let me know if you wish to join TheMonstrous' team. Help would be much appreciated.

I apologize for the extended period of inactivity.

"TheMonstrous For your original nightmares."
Okay, now that is going too far. Not only are you demonizing monsters, but by calling these creatures "nightmares", you're implying that they're ugly which none of my characters I believe are. Please, just stop.

You are definitely a troll. I hope you are enjoying yourself.
