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.

Hello. I've  been a member for quite some time now, and have obviously read the submission rules. I've recently tried to submit two artworks I consider good and am happy with, and which I honestly find at least equal to (if not better than) a lot of recent submissions to this group. I absolutely respect the admins' decision and encourage building up an even stronger gallery of works, which is why I would also value some feedback so that next time I can make a more appropriate choice of work to submit.

Thanks.

There's a bit of internal debate in the group about things that are stylized in technique alone, as if a filter of stylization has been applied to a photo. I personally usually vote against images that are entirely realistic except for the techniques used. I think this group would best be served collecting images that are stylized throughout.

I think your first image is a prime example of this, being basically realistic. I didn't vote in either of these, but I would have probably accepted the second one due to the stylistic flair it has.
