Group Rules

Hello, everybody! This group is for unpopular Anthros that have been overshadowed by mainstream animals. Let's give them a chance in the spotlight, shall we?

NOTE: This group only features animal species that are underrated. It does not matter how many pageviews or watchers you have. Anybody can submit here as long as they are drawing unpopular species of animals. Please check the lists below to see what species we accept and those we don't accept. Please read the rules before joining or submitting.



-Anybody can join, regardless if you plan on submitting art or not.

-You don't have to be a member to submit to this group's gallery. But, I would appreciate it if you did join if you plan on submitting lots of pictures here.

:bulletpurple:~Submitting art~:bulletpurple:

-If it doesn't belong on Deviant Art, it doesn't belong here. So that means no porn. However, mature content is allowed. (both sexual mature and gory mature) Questions? Read DA's mature submissions rules.

-Since this is an anthro group, only anthro art is allowed. No kemonomimi please. Ferals are welcome here. And please only submit art. No photography, please. However, sculptures and cosplays are always welcome!

-We accept Original Characters, Fan Characters, Fan Art
Fan art characters must conform to our acceptable species rules
Commissions, Random Characters, Adoptables, etc. Basically any Anthro character is allowed, as long as it's Under Rated.
-YCH's are not accepted unless they are a finalized character. We need to know what the final character is, and it must be under Rated.

-You don't have to be an artistic genius. But please only submit your best works. Ones that you are truly proud of.

-Please submit to the right folder. It makes our job easier.

-Submission limit is 4 per day.

What do we consider to be 'under appreciated'? Well, lemme tell ya.

:bulletgreen:Animals we Accept:bulletgreen:

Most any kind of animal no one else draws
-Most Mammals and Marsupials
-Any kind of insect and arachnid
-Fish or marine aquatic mammals and Pinnipeds
-All birds and fowl
-Scalies, snakes, reptiles, dinos
-Primates (Apes, Monkeys, Lemures, etc)
-Hybrids, alien anthros, and made up species
(Hybrids must be predominately an Under Rated Species)
-Fantasy creatures (Example, a mer-aroo is fine, a mer-wolf is
not UnderRated
That is all the animals I can think of right now, I'm sure there are lots that I am leaving out. If there are any animals that you think are under appreciated, then please do tell me!

We also accept anthros that aren't animals; inanimate objects that are humanoid. (ex, like lamposts and clouds that are humanized.)

:bulletred:Animals we do not accept:bulletred:

-Domestic Cats
-Wild cats, like lions an tigers and panthers, etc
-Domestic Dogs
-wolves (put wings or horns on it and it's still a wolf)
-wild dogs
-bunnies, rabbits, hares
-squirrels and chipmunks
-rats and mice
-Pokemon, Digimon
- My Little Ponies (anthro horses are accepted as long as they are not drawn in MLP style)
-mermaids (half human)
-taurs, anything that is half-human half-animal (like centaurs)

These are all mainstream animals. They get enough attention, so they don't belong here. If I have left out any popular animals, then please let me know.

:bulletpurple:~Other Stuff You May Wanna Know~:bulletpurple:

-A mainstream anthro or a human may be in the picture with the unpopular anthro as long as they don't take the focus away from the unpopular anthro.

-For hybrids, it is okay if the hybrid is a combination of a mainstream anthro and a unpopular antho.
(EX. a squirrel and weasel hybrid is fine.)
But please make sure that your hybrids don't resemble the mainstream animal too much. We must be able to see traits of both animals.
A wolf with wings is still a wolf, and not UnderRated
The hybrid may also be a combo of mainstream animals. But please make sure that it is easy to tell that the animal is a hybrid. Don't submit mainstream hybrids if the animals combined are similar-looking.
(EX, a squirrel and chipmunk hybrid would not be allowed because they are similar animals.)
(EX, a lion, rabbit, and dragon hybrid would be fine because the result would be a really odd-looking animal and that is what we like!)

And of course, hybrids of 2 or more unpopular animals are always welcome!
(EX, a lemur and cow hybrid is absolutely fine!)

- We accept Mature Rated material as long as it is tasteful and artistic. Any image labeled MATURE will be voted on by our administrators.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT PORNOGRAPHY. There are group galleries that do. Please do not be offended if your submission is rejected.
- The definition of pornography:
Pictures, movies, or literature, etc., that show or describe naked people or sex in a very open or exagerated way in order to cause sexual excitement, to titillate or cause sexual arousal ;
The depiction of erotic behavior (in pictures or writing) INTENDED to cause sexual excitement.

- If you have any questions about what we accept, don't be afraid to ask

-Want to affiliate? Great! send us a request! We'd love to be allies!

-Please be nice. No stealing from others. No trolling.

~If you have any questions, then please let me know! I don't bite and I don't bark~!

Please take note;
  In an effort to simplify and unclutter our gallery so that each image can be more easily found and seen, I have added two new folders. I've spent a lot of time moving images around, so check 'em out.
  Multiple Characters:
If you have two or more characters of different species, and you're not sure where they go, they go here. Two Dugongs would go in Digital Art 2. A Dugong, a Quall, and a Wombat would go in Multiple Characters.
  Flippers, Fins, Feathers:
Frogs, amphibians, newts, turtles, etc., go here. Also, All Cetateans, Sea-dwelling Crustateans, Fishes, etc. go here. Mercritters still go in the Fantasy folder or fan art.
Let's not forget the feathers. All birds (not flying mammals!) go here. Please, no feathered MLPs disguised as birds. They're sneaky. Gotta watch 'em!  
  Check out the new folders and tell me what you think. And please use them. Take a few extra seconds before you hit "submit" to make sure your prize character is in the correct folder. Save us all a lot of time.

I like how you are clear on Pornography. So many confuse nudity and porn as the same thing. While both feature nakedness, one is just that and the other relates to sexual intercourse, and sexual stimulation. 

Also, would polar bears, skunks, and red pandas be accepted?
LipsterLeo Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2019  Hobbyist Writer
If the first thing I see when I look at an image is two huge nipples staring me in the face, that's porn. Got no problem with natural nudity. We have several examples in our gallery.

Polar Bears, skunks, and Red pandas? Of course --  ;)
Azurllinate Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2019  Student Digital Artist
Oh gosh, I never would draw that. Yet I am happy to find someone who understands the difference. :) 

Fantastic! I am joining the group then. :nod:

Hi dear Friends, may I contribute a single illustration with rabbits (original characters, non Zootopian)? :) I know they're in not accept list, but honesltly I can't find they are popular in modern fandom. For example, I searched around 500 groups, and can't find even 10 rodent folders there xD Of course we have Zootopia, Judy Hopps etc, but seems this is the only thing which makes rabbits popular here today. And looks like Zootopia came less popular nowdays, always there are lots of new franchises which will blow people minds. Anyway, I think this theme, "to be underrated" is flexible and widely depends of actual franchises xD Will be cool to hear an opinion form you, even if rabbit art still not acceptable :) Your group is one of the best anyway <3
