Group Rules

:iconletter-rplz::iconletter-eplz::iconletter-aplz::iconletter-dplz:
:iconletter-mplz::iconletter-eplz:

Submissions are limited to 5 a day and MUST be related to an original character, or an original world (eg, maps or towns) - if no information is mentioned about the character, then it will be assumed that it is general art and will be declined.



What we DO NOT accept

Fan-based characters or Fan art are not allowed.
Fan-based characters however, are allowed in the ADOPTABLES folder IF they are adopts ONLY

These are characters created to fit into an already existing world, such as Naruto fan-based characters, or any other already existing and well known world.
We are a group dedicated to original characters. We do understand that in many cases characters may have been slightly influenced by certain things, this is ok, but blatant fan-based characters are not welcome here.

:bulletblack: For now we only accept fine art submissions not literature. Character references may contain text in the description, this is totally fine, but there MUST be a visual element.

:bulletblack: We no longer accept mature content

:bulletblack: No species guides please, there are plenty of groups for those.

:bulletblack: Unfinished doodles are not accepted, as is anything on LINED PAPER or anything which is poorly scanned or photographed.

What we DO accept
:bulletblack: We accept all mediums except lit for the time being. We also accept all skill levels so please you are more than welcome to pop in.

:bulletblack: If you decide to submit work FROM someone else (eg. you do not draw but someone has drawn your character for you) please request the original artist's permission before submitting yourself.

:bulletblack: We do accept character cross-overs and encourage them! We also encourage you to submit any gift art you may have done in appreciation of another deviant's characters.

:bulletblack: We do accept animal characters and anthro characters, however in terms of when we have trades or cross-over challenges, we do expect animal artists or anthro artists to embrace the idea that they may at one point have to draw someone's human character. This also goes for those who focus on human characters also.

:bulletblack: We are all for respecting the work of others, each character and idea is the legal copyright of its owner and we do not appreciate thieves.

Creation-challenge by Sleyf


Hello lovely folk,

Normally you have the super-efficient :iconsleyf: posting your updates, showing us all up with her amazing admin and tech skillz (oh yes, the 'Z' was ironic...)
But unfortunately, once a month, you will have to endure journals from yours truly, a negligent reprobate when it comes to posting important stuff on this group.

I had an idea for a challenge (although we did discuss it being a contest at one point) which I discussed with Sleyf at the beginning of the year and it is this:

Challenge your creative skills this new year:


Want to stretch your creative muscles this year? Bored of writing about the same old characters/ drawing the same old faces? (Not that they aren't fabulous of course) then why not put your amazing abilities to the test with this new OC challenge?


The rules are thus:


  • Pick a genre you haven't explored before (e.g sci-fi, romance, historical, mystery, horror etc.)
  • Then, between February and November this year, you will be assigned a new challenge every month for developing said new genre, which will include character creation, interesting back stories, writing/ drawing prompts etc.
  • Some tasks will be simple, some will be more complex- but hopefully all will be fun!
  • If people actually last the entire year, :iconsleyf: and I, who will be following the challenge in a folder in this group, will look at the faithful candidates and each pick a 'winner' e.g. someone who has developed the most convincing character, story etc, authentic tone, interesting history, creative appearance etc and I will be offering artwork, points and core membership to said winners.
  • This will occur in December (More on the prizes closer to the time.)
  • Please comment below if you intend to give this a try.

Below is February's challenge meme, please read carefully, complete and submit to the 'World Creation Challenge folder'.


The deadline for completing this meme is Saturday 5th March 2016, midnight.


Go forth adventurers and conquer new lands in your imagination!

Will submit the AMA entry after I get some sleep - it's ready but I'm in no state to check for typos and such now. :P I hope you'll add it to the journal later if you happen to update it before then! :)
