Group Info

Welcome to True Amazons! The group for art depicting women as strong, tough, or courageous... but tastefully.

Basically, the point of the group is this: Empower Women. There are tons of other groups on DeviantArt that are full of naked, huge-breasted bimbos for male audiences. The other half of the population wants a break!

You don't have to be a woman to join this group, but you do have to respect the way women feel when they view your art. Girls, this is YOUR turf. Guys, you are welcome to stay, as long as you behave yourselves. :)


THE RULES - Please read before submitting art:

• All art must be ON-TOPIC, meaning that their main focus is a woman, and this woman must be powerful or inspiring (see below for more details). Just because there is a woman in the picture does not automatically mean it's on-topic.

• All characters must have REALISTIC body proportions and anatomies, and realistic body poses. Cartoons are allowed, but "Escher girls" and erotic monstrosities are not.

• Keep it CLEAN. We don't want people coming here just to ogle at boobies. Please, no porn, lewd pin-up, fetishized sexual body parts, etc. Any nudity must have a non-erotic justification. Guys, trust us: if you designed your female character just to make yourself horny, women can tell.

• ABSOLUTELY NO art or comments that are degrading to women. This includes anything that portrays women as weak or helpless, violence against women, women as prisoners or slaves, women in bondage, women being abused, impending rape scenes, "peril" art, Gorean art, or art that portrays women as victims.

• All submissions must show reasonable artistic and presentation QUALITY. No unfinished or poorly-presented art, faint sketches, quick doodles, blurry photos, drawings on lined paper, rough pencil sketches, or very novice artwork. Colored art is preferred; uncolored art should be well-shaded or otherwise obviously complete.

• Watch out for REDUNDANCY. Please only submit one version of each piece, ideally the most complete version. Also please try to avoid submitting sequence series.

• If something is in your gallery, then it has to be your own original work, not stolen, uploaded or modified without another owner's permission. Screen-shots from games, TV shows, movies, etc. do not count as art. Photo-manipulations and photo-based art must credit all source photos in the accompanying notes and be modified enough from the original to be considered art. As a rule we do not consider applying Photoshop actions or other art effect filters adequate to create original work.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

UPDATE: What *IS* On-Topic?
Art submissions MUST fall into one of more of the following categories. If it does not, then it is not on-topic and we will not accept it!

* Fan art or cosplay of known strong female characters from popular culture, mythology, or history

* Warrior women, women who are holding weapons, wearing armor, or kicking butt

* Women who demonstrate remarkable physical strength, athleticism, or a muscular body (without being an obvious sexual fetish).

* Women who possess, preferably demonstrate, formidable magical powers; i.e. witches and sorceresses

* Women as leaders, women possessing authority

* Deviant ID's of female group members; or if you are a guy, photos of women who you know in real-life who you look up to (submitted with their permission, of course!)

* Women displaying other qualities of strength or toughness not listed here; i.e. mastering the elements, flying a jet, saving someone's life, befriending dangerous animals, making an important political statement, etc.

Hello All!
Recently there has been a bunch of duplicate submissions. Some have been submitting two of the same image with some slight alteration or a color and a line art piece of the same subject. Our group guidelines state:
  • Watch out for REDUNDANCY. Please only submit one version of each piece, ideally the most complete version. Also please try to avoid submitting sequence series.
I know most of you mass submit to many groups at one time and just assume a decision will be made for you. All group guidelines are not the same. Please pay attention and submit your best piece or the piece you wish to share with this group. If multiples are submitted then they will all be rejected. Sorry to say, but our time is just as valuable as yours and we don't always have the luxury of spending time trying to decide which piece fits best, which piece looks best and which piece has to go.
I'm not calling anyone out, I'm just reminding everyone to take a moment, look through the guidelines and make your own choice. It helps a great deal!
Thank you,
~Krista

Does another group exist that hasn't so strict guidelines with artwork (in terms with drawing with conventional material and is accessible for Hobby Artists)?

There are tons of groups who don't have the same guidelines or rules. I don't think you'll have any problem finding them on here. Good luck! :)
