Hi guys!

We've finally completed our FAQ, and we've revamped the rules to hopefully make things clearer and easier for people to join ;)

We're also looking to revamp the language page here:…
If you'd like to help us out in the language department, please note us about it and we'll add you to the list ^^ We'll also be translating the rules entirely into a few different languages, so if you think you can give us a hand in that as well, again just send us a note!

Hopefully with the FAQ and rules out of the way we can start organising events soon =) Thanks for your patience~

:bulletorange: Before You Join:
  • Read and absorb all the rules. We'll know if you haven't ;)
  • If you don't plan on submitting work, please consider just watching the group instead.
  • You'll receive deviations from the group in your inbox. If you're only interested in getting your fanart exposed and plan on turning off the group's notifications after becoming a member, please be honest and reconsider joining. This shouldn't be a one way thing!
  • All fanart submissions need to be voted in in accordance with our rules, so if you can't accept the possibility of rejection, please reconsider joining.

:bulletorange: Gallery Submissions:
  • You can only submit work once a week, meaning one work every seven days.
  • We have a standard of quality. Fanart encompasses an extremely large portion of art on dA so to avoid inbox flooding, we can only accept submissions that are above a certain level of quality.
    (What is Quality?)
  • Please don't delete your submission correspondence. This is the only way you'll find out whether your submission has been accepted, rejected or expired. It'll also tell you whether voting is still going on, so for your sake and ours, please don't delete it!
  • Please don't submit your own work to the Featured folder. You can recommend another artist's work to be featured though. Features are voted on by admin.
  • Mature deviations are allowed as long as there is a warning and as long as the fanart is not porn.
  • We don't allow traced/copied/eyeballed works. This may not be a typical rule of other groups but we are adamant about this so please take note:

    • Traced/copied/eyeballed work is not allowed if your reference material is already an artwork produced by someone else's hand (e.g. Manga material or the like) and your submission is merely a reproduction of the same image. Be aware of this rule when your reference material is from a cartoon, Japanese or Western comic, or an anime, etc.

    • If your fanart is striving for photorealism (eg. live action film/TV fanart referenced from a screencap) it is acceptable for submission.

    • Please click the double exclamation marks at the end of "please read everything carefully" at the top of the rules before applying to join.

:bulletorange: If Your Submission is Declined:
  • We generally don't give critique, but if you feel wronged by our decision, you can ask for an explanation in the submission correspondence. Please only ask for a critique once your work is declined because we can't guarantee that we'll remember to critique your work if you ask for one before voting has finished.
  • Please don't resubmit declined artworks. We will only decline again and you'll have to wait another week before you're allowed to submit another piece.
  • If your piece has expired, it means we didn't manage to accept/decline the piece before the submission period ended. Sorry if this happens, but feel free to resubmit, and include a comment in the submission correspondence about the expiration. It would also help to give us a link to the expired correspondence so that we don't decline unfairly.

:bulletorange: And finally...

Be sure to read our [FAQ] for a more detailed clarification of the rules. If you have any other questions, you're welcome to note us or just leave a comment on the main page.

I'm sorry but I don't think this group is very active and thus I don't see the benefit of being part of it. I wish everyone a very good day.

Hi. I was this group still active? My submission hasn't been accepted/declined since 7th March. :|

Hi! I really do not understand why my work (…) was's a finished work, it's a fan art, and it's pretty high quality? Also, I asked why it was declined by the submission, but never got a reply.

I don't get why my submission was declined? I've double-checked all the rules concerning submissions, and it seemed to have been fine?
Here's the link:…
