Read please!


Welcome to WatercolorAnimals group! We focus on traditional art, done with watercolors. The theme of this group is animals- both real and fantasy! You can also submit artworks showing games or anime characters. The only rule: they must be animals or animal-like. If You like to paint with watercolors or just want to find artists who use this technique, feel free to join our group! Anyone can bacome a member!

What do You have to know:

◆Please submit only Your best works, not Your whole gallery!
◆Your work must be done 100% by traditional way! Only things You can use Photoshop for are: fixing contrast, brightness, crop.
◆Only art done by yourself is acceptable.
◆Fan art folder is for characters from games/movies etc. Fantasy creatures are OCs, Your own characters, species created by someone from DeviantART, or just random dragons/unicorns...
◆We accept works done by people on various experience levels, but still, these have to be done neatly (5 mins works are not accepted)

What is accepted:

❤ Works done with watercolor. Watercolor mixed with ink is allowed too. Still watercolors must cover most of the picture!
❤ Finished works in good quality, scanned esthetically.
❤ We accept both real animals and fantasy creatures!
What does "finished work" mean?
Finished painting is created with attention. If work has no background, it has detailed characters. It can be full character or portrait, but not levitating head or another parts of character's body!

What is not accepted:

✘ Unfinished works, messy sketches, scans with crumbs.
✘ Photography
✘ Porn
✘ Digital paintings
✘ Mixed media (traditional artworks with digital interference.)
✘ Tattoos- even if their style imitates watercolor- we look only for paintings done with real watercolor paints.

Create 31 watercolor works in 31 days!
TLDR (short video expleining everything)


1.All works must be tagged with #WorldWatercolorMonth tag.
2. They must follow official themes. Animals aren't necessary in these works.
3. All must be done with watercolors and watercolor paints must cover the most part of painting.
4. Blurred photos and very simple and fast works won't be accepted. Scan Your work or make a sharp photo in daylight.
5. Have fun!

Anyway, share Your instagram accounts with me! I'm fuzzy.maro and I would love to follow a of You!

Yes it is! But sometimes none of us has enough time to run the group so it feels a bit inactive (I try my best but unfortunately I am not as active as before ^^;)... Sorry about that!!
