Group Info

GROUP RULES:

PLEASE submit art to the correct folder. Your art may be declined if it is not. An outline of the different folders is provided below. Relax; some categories are flexible.

Quality control: We are an elitist group. This does not mean that you have to be a professional artist for your art to be accepted. Other art may be accepted if it is thoroughly complete, well-presented, has a background, and you clearly put in serious time and effort. No sketch dumps, scraps, quick doodles, WIP’s, line art, or bad photos. Gallery-style art only; no comics, adoptables, tutorials, character sheets, etc. Do not submit multiple versions of the same piece. Art that does not meet our quality standards will be declined.

What counts as a mythical creature? All creatures must come from the Mythology of a real culture. Please do not submit creatures that you invented. Not all mythical beings are "creatures." Gods do not count unless they have shapeshifted into a creature. No robots, aliens, anthro/furry, or dinosaurs. No creatures from commercial franchises (i.e. Pokemon, etc.) All creatures must look different from normal animals or humans. Brownie points for under-represented mythologies, such as Native American, African, Southeast Asian, etc.

Group integrity: Use common sense. Do not steal other people’s art, berate other artists, submit porn, post anything racist or offensive, or do anything else that is stupid like that.


THE FOLDERS:

Featured – Admins’ select favorites. Members cannot upload art into this folder.

Dragons – European dragons and Asian dragons.

Birds and Griffins – Any mythical bird (phoenix, roc, thunderbird, etc.), as well as griffins, and other creatures that are predominantly birdlike.

Unicorns and Equines – Unicorns and related creatures (kirin, karkadan, etc.), as well as other mythical equines (Pegasus, Sleipnir, etc.) Centaurs go into a different folder.

Rare Reptiles – Mythical serpents, lizards, turtles, and any non-dragon reptile.

Dear new (and old) members,

I recently declined a lot of art submissions to this group, mostly from new members who probably haven't read the rules.  I sent out a bunch of messages explaining why, and then those messages got deleted when I switched administration from my other DA account to this one (oops).

In short, there are two reason why I declined people's art:

1.  Creatures were not from actual mythology.  In order to be accepted in this group, all art must depict a creature that comes from the mythology of an actual culture.  It cannot be a species that you or a commissioner invented.

2.  Art did not meet our completion standards.  This is an elitist group, and all art submissions must be detailed and thoroughly complete.  We do not accept uncolored line art.  With rare exception, we almost always need some semblance of a background in the picture.  Professional quality is preferred, but other art will be accepted as long as it is detailed, colored, and has a good background.

If you drew a "real" mythical creature, such as a sphinx, griffin, or manticore, and I rejected it, then just add a background, and color it if it isn't colored, and then resubmit it.  :)

I am sorry for the missing messages, but I hope this clears everything up.  Thank you all for being a part of this group!
