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:

1.

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.

2.

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

3.

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.

4.

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

5.

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.

6.

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:

mifmemo.deviantart.com/art/I-j…

7.

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'm considering hosting a contest for this group, since that hasn't happened in YEARS. Come to think of it, I haven't hosted any contests in years, but that's a different story.

Here are some ideas, but if anyone else has something different in mind, please leave your suggestions in the comments. I'd love some feedback!

:bulletyellow: Comment Chain
In a designated journal or a forum topic (since I'm a premium member, I could create a private forum topic for this purpose), club members could post one or more pieces of their anthro bird artwork and receive feedback from other members. You could ask for two different types of feedback, comment and critique, and indicate which one you'd want, or if you want both comments and critiques. I would start by posting some of my art to comment on, and the person who posted below me would comment on one or more of my pieces and post their own art. The person who posted below them would comment on/critique one or more of their pieces and post their own art, and so on so forth.

This would be a great way to give your work more attention, and to get to know other artists and club members with similar interests!

:bulletyellow: Summer Contest
I know a LOT of groups do this, particularly anthro groups, but summer-themed contests are popular. There could be a lot of different themes to this: a beach party, summer vacation, a tropical theme...If you have any suggestions, please post! I'm open to ideas.

:bulletyellow: Summer Collaboration
Each person could draw one (or more, depending on the number of people entering) of their characters, and I would draw the background. Once we were done, I would put everyone's drawing into the background, and upload the finished piece. There could be a lot of different themes to this: a beach party, summer vacation, a tropical theme...If you have any suggestions, please post! I'm open to ideas.
