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, 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.

A new DNA analysis on a Viking warrior's grave confirms that the high-ranking warrior was a woman, not a man.  This is big news because, despite a long-known oral history of the existence shieldmaidens, mainstream scholars have been skeptical that Viking warrior women were fact and not fiction.…

"Not only was she a warrior, but the grave suggests she was a high-ranking one. Along with her remains, archaeologists found a sword, an ax, a spear, armor-piercing arrows, a bottle knife, two shields and two horses – the complete equipment of a professional warrior. Furthermore, a full set of gaming pieces with the remains implied she had knowledge of tactics and strategy and confirmed her role as a high-ranking officer, the findings state."

Recall, just a few years ago, when a graveyard of Viking settlers buried with swords and armor was revealed to include numerous women,…, people were jumping out of their seats trying to deny that these women were actually warriors.  Because you know, of course they can't be warriors; they were women!  Perhaps this attitude will be reconsidered in light of the new discovery.

Thank you for adding my art! :love:

Thank you so much for requesting my painting! :D (Big Grin) 
Sadly I'll have to decline as the painting's actually of a very effeminate man, (Baldr, son of Odin), so I don't think he'd quite fit the group rules ;) (Wink) 
Still, I'm flattered you thought it was good enough to add! ^_^

And this sounds like a pretty cool group, I'll have to have a proper look around when I have time :) (Smile)

Nice artwork in this group.
Rules are strict, but that's a good thing. There are many groups where you see good artwork, but also with poor quality drawings. That's something that this group seperates them from others. It contains quality work.

Yeah.  We also see a lot of groups that are supposed to celebrate women, but when you look at their galleries, we see they just mean women as sex objects.  The rules in this group are intended to celebrate women as PEOPLE and therefore keep the sexualization to a minimum.

About the folders, I was wondering... If a painting fits in more than one category (e.g. a fan-art of an elf witch), is there any preference as to where it should go?
Thanks in advance!
DriPoint Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2018   Digital Artist
Nearly everybody just plonks them into the sorting folder so no you'd be doing us a favour whichever category you choose other than that! :)
