This part may have gotten lost in the the monthly themed journal, so I will post it again with some more explanation.

Currently, this group is administered by myself, Anya, and Skia. We would like to add to this small team in order to strengthen the group and bring new ideas and tastes into the mix.

The primary role admins play is to vote on works submitted to this group. While we all have different backgrounds in art and ideas of what "stylized" means, admins strive to keep the quality level of the works in the gallery high. This can be difficult sometimes when times are slow or the quality of work we'd like to see isn't being submitted.

Therefore, another role admins play is to seek out and submit works that are appropriate for the group's gallery. This second role is not exclusively left up to admins. Anyone can recommend a piece to be included in the gallery and we'd love to see more recommendations from our members*.

Other responsibilities may include:
- Replying to inquiries
- creating journals
- moving misplaced works into proper folders

Time spent administering the group varies, but is typically less that 5 minutes a day.

If you feel you'd like to be a part of the admin team, send us a note with a small (or long) bit about why you want to be an admin and some reasons why you think you'd be good at it. It's really that simple.

Any general questions about this position or the group can be asked here in the journal.

*This group is only as strong as the people who participate in it. Everyone of you reading this adds works to their favorites folder. If you fave something that fits this group's criteria, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE recommend it to us. The more eyes we have looking for quality work, the stronger our gallery becomes.


January-February Animal Challenge

We're going to do something a little different for this next challenge. Rather than giving you a specific animal prompt, we are giving you a location prompt. Fro the months of January and February, we challenge you to create an image with at least one animal from the geographic location of


1. Please create work specifically for the challenge, and not submit works done from before the date of the challenge.

2. Please include it's for the challenge in the description.

3. Please include a link to an online source (Wikipedia is fine) that states the animal is from Siberia

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.

Just letting you know that your rodents folder isn't actually open for submissions. Could you fix that?

Hi, I think I accidentally submitted a kitty into the bird folder because it was next to the bird drawing I was meant to submit in my own gallery. Sorry about that!
