Rules and Guidelines:

:bulletgreen: What we allow:

:pointr: Kemonomimi (humans with animal ears).

:pointr: Humans with robotic or fake ears and tails (Note: Eared hats with faces on them don't count).

:pointr: Paws or hooves on the back feet are allowed, but everything above the kneecap must be human.

:pointr: Slightly unnatural skin tones are okay (most warm colors and gray tones are accepted).

:pointr: Fanart, and original characters are both welcome. Gijinka/humanizations are allowed if they meet the kemonomimi criteria.

:pointr: Any type of art form (including photography, literary and CG).

:bulletred: What we do not allow

:pointr: No elf ears.

:pointr: No non-kemonomimi, anthropomorphic, furry, kemono*, modern anthro* or hybrid* characters
-Unless as a side-character or extra in the piece, but the kemonomimi character(s) must be prominent (see submission guidelines).

:pointr: No animal paws replacing the hands (paw shaped gloves are okay). Only animal back feet are acceptable.

:pointr: No animalistic features on the face (animal noses, snouts, etc.), minimal markings are okay.

:pointr: No fur or overtly unnatural skin color. Tattoo-like markings are acceptable.

:pointr: No hats with animal faces or animal masks. We must be able to tell the ears "belong" to the character.

:bulletblue: Submission Guidelines

:pointr: Submit all art to the featured folder (it will later be sorted by ear type).

:pointr: Remember, the animal ears must be clearly visible! We will not accept any kemonomimi characters with their ears cropped out of the picture.

:pointr: All submissions must be in their completed state. No WIPs, lineart, sketches, incomplete YCH auctions, etc.

:pointr: Submissions must show effort! No drawings on lined/graph/wrinkled paper. No photographs of a drawing or poorly scanned drawings.

:pointr: All work must be your own. No screenshots, avatars, etc. No art theft in general.

:pointr: No memes, Tumblr "ask" drawings, or text-heavy/watermark-heavy images (Deviant IDs, advertisements). Relevant Deviant stamps are allowed.

:pointr: For group pictures that include non-kemonomimi, the kemonomimi character(s) must be in the foreground, and account for at least 1/3 of the group or more. This also counts for "adoptables" sheets.

:pointr: No image dumps or batch adoptable sheets (the limit for adoptables is 8 per sheet).

:pointr: Comic/manga pages are not allowed, but cover pages and previews/teasers/samples are welcome. "Page 1" is also considered a sample, but anything further will be denied.

:pointr: Try to keep photography artistic and tasteful (no selfies/social media type photos)

:pointr: For mature content, although we allow anything that can be submitted to DA, please try to keep nudity/sexual content as tasteful as possible.

:pointr: Please remove any works that you plan to place in storage. Also, remove any adoptable sheets that are no longer relevant to our group.

:pointr: Some promotional material is acceptable, but only if it meets the criteria above (focus on a kemonomimi character, minimal amount of text, etc.). We do not allow journal-based advertisements.
