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!

Oriole WIP by akfinucan  Hey there.  Id love to join the group.  But im not sure if my work qualifies as I only post Works in Progress. Can anyone tell me if what I have recently posted is worth this groups time ?
FuzzyMaro Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2017
Hi! I accepted it but try to make a nice photo in a daylight, or a nice scan next time :) 
Also we are looking forward a finished work!

Thank you kindly,
I am still learning as I go. Haha
I dont even have a laptop or PC anymore so its difficult for me to get a decent quality photo.
Ive been on this site for years but am worse than a newbie when it comes to knowing how to use the options it has. If i can figure out how to do a decent watermark I will gladly post completed work. But in the past I've had a person claim my portraits were their work, so I havnt posted any completed work here. Im thankful for the paitent and polite people here (like you )who have been helping me display my work in a more appealing way!
FuzzyMaro Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2017
Oh I understand. What device do You have? It's possible to make a watermark on a tablet or mobile phone too! Maybe i'll help? 
About increasing a quality of photos, just take them at day, open the window or go outside. Even a mobile phone can capture a good photo in a good light! 
Avoid the light od lamps :) 
I also had some people who stole my art, and they even tried to print it on gadgets and sell! But I report them everytime i find their auctions.
