Club Rules-read before submitting!

DAvians is a club for anyone who likes (or likes to draw) featheries (aka. anthropomorphic birds).

Here are some rules on what we accept:


Any art of anthropomorphic birds and adheres to the rules below will be allowed. To quote Wikipedia,
"Examples of anthropomorphic attributes include exhibiting human facial expressions, the ability to speak, walk on two legs, and wear clothes."
1.5. Since all birds walk on two legs, it makes the categorization of "anthro" a lot more nebulous than with mammals, reptiles, et cetera. If I, Magenta-Fantasies or any of the co-founders or contributors can't tell it's an anthro from the picture (many headshots are like this), the picture doesn't belong in the group and will be removed.
In short, by this group's standards, if a headshot doesn't look anthro, it isn't.
There are MANY borderline pictures, but my (the founder's) personal rule is "if I have to look at it intently for a while to figure out if it should be in group or not, then it shouldn't.


Anthropomorphic griffins, phoenixes and other mythological birds are allowed. These should be submitted to the Fantasy Birds folder.


We allow all styles of anthro art, including chibi, anime, realistic, Sonic, cartoon and anything in between. Just make sure the subjects are anthro birds!
3.5 Any artist of any skill level can submit art too.


Fan art is allowed, just be sure to submit it to the Fan Art folder.


Finished drawings only; that means no sketches and WIPs (lineart is allowed, as is black and white art). This also means no drawings made from dollmakers/generators, and no recolored/traced pictures. We do not allow screenshots from movies, TV shows, video games, et cetera.


We do allow artwork made from bases, however we do enforce quality control with base-made artwork. We will allow artwork made with bases as long as said pictures are good quality (this would be at the discretion of the founder)and follow the rest of the group rules. Any pictures which are of sub-par quality will be removed at the discretion of the founder. Also, bases that are made from screenshots or anything that wasn't made by the base's creator will be removed.

Here are some examples of what's considered acceptable quality base usage:…………………


If you don't know the species of the character/s in the picture when submitting it to the Group, submit to this folder.
Also, if you're unsure about what goes in which folder, click on the folder and read the description inside.
7.5 We allow unlimited submissions but DO NOT abuse this privilege. That means don't flood the group with submissions and make sure you submit things to the correct folders (each folder contains a description that will help you with knowing where things go).

I, :iconmagenta-fantasies: am feeling awesome right now! Everyone was able to make their gift in a timely manner, which means everyone was able to receive their gift in a timely manner!

So far all of our Secret Santas have been a success. How about making this a yearly tradition? Also, how about some other suggestions for other parts of the year?

Why're there non-bird Pokemon images being put into the group's gallery?

I'm a Bird. May I join the group?

Do you allow sexual art, or would you like to keep your gallery clean?

Magenta-Fantasies Nov 10, 2013  Professional General Artist
Depends. How sexual are we talking?

I guess I don't have a problem with it if there's only a few pictures and they're properly marked as "mature". I don't mind that sort of art that much, but at the same time I don't want the group flooded with smut.
Thousandfoldfeathers Nov 10, 2013  Student General Artist
Understood, sexual meaning mildly, I would never do anything grotesque of any sort, only tame things.
Magenta-Fantasies Nov 10, 2013  Professional General Artist
*looks in your gallery*

I don't see anything that would qualify as "too sexual", so you're okay.

By the way, I think I've seen your art in a few other groups. I was looking at one of your pictures not too long ago. :)
