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 regular illustrations to the proper folder sorted by ear type. For "special" art forms, please check for the corresponding folder.

:pointr: 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 and comic pages.

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

: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 (submit directly to the NSFW folder).

: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.

I have two questions about the submission guidelines, first is, what exactly does it mean to place an artwork in storage? I've seen this before and thought it was time to ask :D (Big Grin)  and second is, is it allowable to take photographs of my drawings as long as it looks like a quality scan? Thanks:) (Smile)

Before I join and submit my art,

I wanna ask something:

Are sharp nails/claws allowed? I know biological animal paws/hands aren't allowed, but my kemono character has biologically sharp nails. Just human hands and fingers with claws.
