More Than One Animal

Newest Members


What you need to know

:star: ABOUT :star:
A group focused on artworks created based on stylization, simplified or exaggerated forms with an animal thematic.

:star: Rules :star:

:bulletblue: There is no limit for deviations submitted yet, as the group is still growing. Feel free to upload as much you want for now.

:bulletblue: We look for a certain level of quality on the submissions so not every work may be accepted. Don’t feel bad if your works don’t get approved right away. One of the purposes of keeping the group somewhat restricted is to inspire people to improve their artwork.

:bulletblue:Our approval system is based on votes coming from the staff, which were individually selected based on their knowledge on the subject.

:bulletblue:The works uploaded here do not necessarily need to be full of details or have backgrounds, but it does need to have some sort of effort put into them –mainly on the design, stylization, shapes and such . It must be a finished piece however.

:bulletblue: Your submission will be judged based on originality, drawing, appeal and etc.

:bulletblue: We normally don't accept Fanart.

:bulletblue:Copied and stolen work will obviously not be accepted.

:bulletblue:Submissions MUST go to the appropriate folder, so pay ATTENTION to those. We may re-locate it to you, but if you pick a moderator that is not feeling like doing so, it may also be rejected.

:bulletblue:Submissions must not contain explicit content, such as pornography.

:bulletblue: Anyone can join the group, even if you do not create stylized work that often.

:bulletblue:Try to submit only your best works. We discourage generic designs, as we’re looking to build a rich gallery.


What is a crow?

Corvus Corax or Common Raven 3 by pagan-live-style

Scientifically speaking, a crow is a black pointy thing.


And herein lies the beauty of stylizing such an animal.

This creature, so prevalent in culture and mythology, has a monopoly on being a 'black bird'. The crow can be a dream exercise for those who love to push the design and stylization of an animal to its limits. A mere blob, and beak, cast in shadow.

And yet, this bird has more gems to offer us artists, wish such a recognizable silhouette.

Don't just feel satisfied with the splurge of black? Get intimate with that anatomy, yo. Make those crows so crow they don't need no colour to glow pure 'crow', ya know?

hmm... Even though I am a member I am unable to submit art, either directly from the deviation page, or through the group gallery.  :(

Maybe this is just a DA glitch?
AmandaMyers Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015
So sorry! I was messing with the settings yesterday because I was having a similar problem and DA's FAQ recommended I reset all settings. I think it should be fixed now. Let me know if it doesn't work!
