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.


:bulletblue: Challenge Duration:April 6 - May 5
:bulletblue: April's Theme:  Create a stylized Maned Wolf.
Maned Wolf by Riphath

Read below for more information.

:bulletgreen: Rules
1. The entries must be new and created for this particular challenge.
2. Entries should be submitted to the “Stylized Challenge” folder.
3. You may submit several pictures.
4. Challenge is for Stylized Animals' members only.

The maned wolf is an animal with interesting features, its own body would be considered by many as extremely exaggerated naturally due to it's long legs, shape of head and big ears. If you're a fan of this animal and would like to try the fun task of stylizing the maned wolf, now is the time. :)


Last month's most voted image was That's a Moray by janinwise. Congratulations!

Please take a look through March's entries to vote on which pelican image you think should be a group feature on the front page for the month of April!

Will this group do Secret Santa again this year? Last year was very fun. :)
It has not been brought up by any of the other admins and  I don't have any plan to organize it again. I feel too bad for the people who never got their requests last year :(

*Meaning, is Stylization different than Character Design?

I'm back, like a recurring nightmare! 

I kid.

But, I am curious to have... a definition of what it is for a piece of artwork to be 'stylized,' because I'm getting the sense that, for this group, a submission has to be more than simply a less-realistic-more-cartoony version of an animal... Is this correct?
