Submission Guidelines - May 2020 edition

Featured Gallery
This is also the most difficult gallery for a submission to gain approval, requiring 3 favorable votes as opposed to just one. It should be the BEST of the best. To go directly into this gallery you should have something either very creative - pose / design / effect or be a visually stunning work. Normally you should only be sending one or two pictures into this gallery.

(UPDATE 10/4/2017 - Due to repeated submission errors and some abuse, this category is now closed to submissions except by the Administrative staff. Some pictures may be resorted into other galleries reflecting the reorganization of this gallery.)

(UPDATE: 1/1/2019 - Reminder, with Eclipse coming, it is more important than before to submit to the correct catagory. The admin staff may not be able to quickly approve or move submissions sent to incorrect folders resulting in slower approval or rejection. If this happens resubmission to the correct folder may be necessary to correct the problem.)

Digital Catgirls Gallery
This gallery features works that have been created using digital media or have been digitally inked / colored. DA reports it has been filed, so pictures are now going to Digital Catgirls Gallery 2

Traditional Media Gallery
This gallery features works that have been created by traditional media and scanned / photographed for posting on the DA system. (Minor digital touch ups or color corrections are acceptable)

Lineart Gallery
Originally intended for line art, this gallery has also become the home to most black and white, or limited shading artwork.

Mature Rated Catgirls
Open to any media, this gallery is intended to hold any thign that would be rated above PG-13 or that may be a little too risqué for the general viewing audience. When in doubt, this gallery is a safe bet.

Mature Catgirls Lineart
As above, but for pictures that are just inked, black/white or have limited shading.

Cosplay Catgirls
This gallery is the home/showcase for photographs of Cosplay catgirls. For general photography, if you have a genuine neko girl, please call the nearest genetics lab to confirm and once confirmed will definitely a Featured gallery character. For the cosplay characters if the character is recognizable as being from the Anime, Comics, Broadway shows or TV Series or using make-up or body paint to portray a catgirl, ** and ** the photo is of reasonable quality, you may post it here. Note - this gallery may contain mature content - viewer digression is advised

Photomorphic Catgirls
This is the gallery for models who have been digitally altered into cute / playful catgirls.
Note - this gallery may contain mature content - viewer digression is advised

The Library
Your home for fiction. You may post stories / graphic novels into this category. Stories being posted should either be complete. self contained, or end at a logical story point (cliffhanger, chapter end, page end) at time of posting. English language is helpful but foreign language submissions may be submitted as well. (NOTE: non-English submissions may be substantially delayed do to the need for translation.) Stories MUST feature a catgirl / neko as one of the main characters. Graphic novels / comics are permitted, however they may be more appropriate and appreciated in one of the illustration galleries. In all cases, stories should be free from most common grammatical and spelling errors.


There are a few restrictions on what is acceptable for posting in the galleries.

1) For artistic creations, the base character should be recognizable as a Neko girl - her feline characteristics such as tail, ears, claws, fangs, or fur are not removable (Were-cats or those transformed into a feline form are allowable if shown while feline)

2) Pictures should feature the catgirl as one of the main characters in the image or playing a significant role in the image.

3) The word on costumes remains: NO. So sadly, even my favorite feline themed heroines and villains do not make the cut. Cosplay of a neko character is welcome as part of the Cosplay gallery if an actual costume, makeup, or body paint is used. Photomorphs would be the correct category for pictures that utilize digital editing, manipulation or post photographic effects,

4) When it comes to alien, Pokémon, Digimon, and similar characters, a key factor can be summed up as, "is the base creature considered FELINE in origin?" For example in the Star Trek Universe, as well as Larry Niven's Known Space universe, Caitians, and Kzinti (Kzin) are recognized as feline in origin. From Outlaw Star, the Ctarl-Ctarl are also a feline alien species. Unfortunately, WOG from their creator James Cameron, has clearly stated that while having feline characteristics, the Na'vi are NOT feline.

5) Regretfully, some art submissions will just not be up to the level that we want to showcase within our galleries. Rejections may be due to a variety of factors including: poor scanning (too faint / poor contrast); inappropriate media choices - (HINT --> lined paper is a big killer); Work in Progress (WIP) that is not at a stage where is could stand alone; or a picture that is just too rough/unfinished. This rejection is not a commentary on the artist. We do allow as much as we can and want to be friendly to starting artists. But we also want to show off catgirls at their best.

6) Pictures submitted to the wrong gallery may be rejected without further comment or may be substantially delayed in being approved, especially true in the case of the Featured Gallery. Note: this is now more critical than ever with the imposition of the Eclipse format. You are welcome to resubmit pictures to the correct gallery for reconsideration.
Hard to believe but it's our 10th Birthday! It just seems like yesterday that we began organizing a collection of catgirl resources here on DA.  But now 1317 members, 177.808 page view and another 2177 watchers later, it's time to celebrate:

The Pregnant Catgirl Virus (PCV)"The world as we know has come to an end thanks to the outbreak of a virus known as the Pregnant Catgirl Virus or PCV for short. Like the name states, anyone infected by the virus becomes a pregnant catgirl whose primary goal is to spread the virus to everyone they can make contact with. Besides that, they pretty much act like normal cats doing whatever they want such as sleeping, playing, hunting, grooming, and so on. They’re surprising friendly and not aggressive at all like the traditional zombies or monsters, but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re still infect with a contagious virus.The primary means of infection by a PCV is through being scratched by the claws of those infected. Shortly after being scratched, the transformation will begin with the victim growing the ears and tail of a cat. Following that, the victim will develop minor changes in the form of their teeth and nails turning into the fangs and claws of a cat along with their pupils warping to being slit-like. Once the cat traits have fully developed, that’s when the victim’s belly rapidly swells up to resemble the belly of a heavily pregnant woman to finish the transformation, turning them into a full PCV. The size of the belly varies slightly between PCVs with the minimum size being triplets and the maximum size being quintuplets with the bellies along looking full term and a bit overdue.Despite the name, the virus isn’t limited to only females. Any males scratched by a PCV will transform into a female before turning into a PCV, hence why they’re so many of them and so few males around. The virus also appears to only affect adults as children and teenagers are unaffected if they get scratched by a PCV. Rather, the PCVs will act motherly toward children and teenagers, adopting them as their own and looking after them like their own children. Many PCVs will look after the children they already have if they already have a family or look for children to take care of if they have none of their own. Many PCV’s will group into pairs, sticking to the people they’re married with if they’re human or looking for a new partner if they’re single. This often leads to families where it’s two PCVs looking after the children together, whether the children are their own or not.The main reason the virus spread so quickly wasn’t just due to the PCVs actively trying to infect people. Due to their appearance as pregnant catgirls making them look cute along with their friendly personalities, many people who didn’t know about the virus were lured in by the PCV’s to give them attention much how one would be lured in by a cat acting friendly. After luring the target close and letting them give her attention for a bit, that’s when the PCV would scratch to make the victim into a new PCV if they’re an adult. It’s very likely that most of the people that were infected early on were people that loved cats or had a catgirl fetish, being easy victims for the PCVs to target. Not to mention, their massive pregnant bellies likely lured in those with a pregnancy fetish as well.Due to acting like friendly cats after infection, it is likely the virus itself causes the victims intelligence to drop to a more basic level as the PCV’s don’t show any real signs of human intelligence. They don’t communicate like humans, mostly making ‘meow’ noises like a cat and purring when they’re happy which is quite often. Their ability to use technology like phones and computers appears to have disappeared as most PCVs will just play with the devices without actually doing anything on them. Much like a cat, they find joy in the simple things like clawing stuff or playing with stuff that’ll move around like balls or other objects they see as toys. Though they don’t speak verbally, they seem to have an ability to communicate among themselves with ease using simple noises and gestures. Perhaps they have some kind of telepathic link connecting them mentally to share their thoughts. Anything seems possible with a virus that turns people into pregnant catgirls after all.The PCVs can eat and drink the same foods that humans do, proving that they still need nutrients like any living thing to stay alive, perhaps even more than usual giving the pregnant bellies they all carry. It’s hard to say whether or not the pregnant bellies are actual real or just false pregnancies as the PCV’s never seem to give birth and are just stuck in a constantly pregnant state. They also seem to prefer leaving their bellies exposed all the time as they make no attempt to cover their bellies. A majority of them wear clothing that is not meant for a pregnant figure, most of it being clothing they already had before the virus got to them.While not very strong, the PCVs are surprisingly fast on their feet, able to sprint faster than a human despite their bellies and able to jump great distances like a cat. Most PCVs can easily leap to the roof of a single story building from the ground level with no trouble and can easily balance on narrow objects like fences and tree branches. All of this is done with bare feet, perhaps because it’s easier to do then if they’re wearing shoes. Much like their bellies, their feet are always exposed along with a habit of walking on the balls of the feet, no doubt imitating the way cats walk.This is all the info that is currently known. Whether or not the PCV can be cured or will turn back to normal on their own in time is a mystery. All things considered, the situation really isn’t that bad since no one seems to be in pain or suffering after being turned into a PCV. If anything, they seem pretty happy with their new forms and new lives. Perhaps this is simply the way things are going to be from now on, the new normal for humanity. Only time can tell if this will be a new way of life for us all or a temporary setback."Looking over the paper that she had written, Heather stands up from her desk and stretches a bit as she walks over to the window of her apartment to look outside, watching all of the PCVs running around and doing their own things. “Well, it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind but I’m quite happy with these results.” She smiles to herself as she enjoys the view. Her plan was to only turn a few women into PCV’s so she could have a pregnant catgirl harem to enjoy, hence why she created the virus. What she couldn’t predict was just how contagious it would be or the fact that it could even turn males into PCV, basically turning the whole world into one big pregnant catgirl harem for her to enjoy.At least that was her intention but knowing how contagious the virus was, she wasn’t able to actually go outside and enjoy the creatures she created. If she was infected and turned into one of them then doing all of this would be pointless. Instead, she had isolated herself in her apartment for the past few weeks while she tried to figure out some kind of vaccine to the PCV or at least make herself immune somehow. Given how the virus worked, she was convinced that there was no natural immunity at all. The virus only affects adults but it was possible that the children or teenagers that were scratched would turn into PCVs once they became adults. No one was immune and all would be turned into PCVs sooner or later.Heather couldn’t help but find the situation truly amusing. She had achieved what she wanted and yet she couldn’t fully enjoy it because of the risk involved. At the rate she was going, she was probably going to die in her apartment all alone once her supplies ran out and they’re already starting to get low. She couldn’t leave her apartment to get supplies either cause the PCVs know she’s there. She could hear one of them scratching at her apartment door, meowing on and off throughout the day. Perhaps it was her neighbor or someone else, but it was clear they’re in the building and waiting for her to join them.Heather sighs, rubbing her face as she walks over to the apartment door. “Well, I guess not all dreams are meant to come true, but I’d rather live with my creations than die alone here like a hermit.” Undoing the locks on the door, she decides to open it and greet the PCVs with open arms, knowing she could at least enjoy petting one of them before she was scratched. Even if this was the end, she wasn’t going to go down without touching at least one pregnant catgirl belly first.
