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.
✘ Gore

Hello! I am so sorry that some artworks aren't accepted to the group and just expired. I just didn't have a time to manage the group I just turned off accepting and all artworks are automatically approved now!
I hope it is a good decision. Remember, submit Your best works, not unfinished sketches! I am going to check them from time to time, but now they won't have to wait so long for my approval.

My new group will be gathering the most talented artists and art here on dA as well as the enthusiasts when comes to birds of prey thematic. A lot of this art is done in watercolor. I think we have a certain affinity so pls let's affiliate.

Hi everyone! For my undergraduate thesis study at University of Toronto, I'm looking for participants to complete an online survey about art-making experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. While you're completing the survey, it will prompt you to upload a photo of your artwork as it is a requirement for this study. This is for me to examine how people cope with stress or enhance well-being using art during this time. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes of your time. If you're interested in participating in the study, please click the link! Thank you so much.

Note: Know that the survey prompts for your gmail. I am unable to change the setting but you all remain anonymous. The actual survey only asks for your initials and won't collect any email information from you.

What do you think about NSFW works (gore theme)? I have never seen rules about them.

Sorry for late reply. 
I prefer not to have gore pics in this gallery but it really depends. If the character shown on picture has a wound and it's shown in a subtle, artistic way then I see no problem.
