Welcome! Group Rules

Meet, draw and enjoy the Anthropomorphic Community!
We offer, help, critique, tutorials and a nice place for members to submit their art.

Everyone is welcome into this group, the more the merrier! Only click on the upper left button "Join" and its done!

Artists who out stand either on their art or on their participation in this group will be featured for 2 whole weeks! You can find the Featured Artist on Anthro Nexus Front page.

Requesting Help
If you need help with your pics or desire to receive constructive criticism, please add the group's icon on your submission's description along with a specific question you'd like for us to answer. Or simply specify you are looking for critique! We'll try to answer your request as soon as possible if you post it to the critique folder! (If you have a DA/official critique request on the image, we will accept this as well.)

Currently Unavailable. Though if you still wish to contribute, we are grateful for anything you might offer. (subscriptions, Points, etc.)

Submitting Art
Every member has the option of submitting their anthropomorphic work to the Anthro Nexus gallery for everyone to see and enjoy. When submitting your work you will see many different categories. If you are not sure about the category your pic fits into you may read the "Folder Guidelines" in one of the sections below.

Global Rules for Submitting:

:bulletred: Only finished* works are accepted, except for the "Requesting Critique" Folder on where you may submit your works in progress. Read bellow how to request help. (*Finished work pertains to work that is coloured. Finished works that are "sketches" are not considered finished to us. Grayscale images that are sketchy but have decent effort in shading/detail may be accepted if the maids think it is ok!)

:bulletred: It has to be biped anthropomorphic art. The only exception would be the occasional aquatic/finned anthro or Anthro/animal Taur BUT that is up to the maids to decide. Human characters with animal ears and tails (kemonomimi) are not accepted here. Submissions featuring ANY non-anthro (ie humans, kemonomimi, animals) are not accepted, even if an anthro is the main focus of the picture. It keeps our submission loads smaller and gives our group a focus. We will also allow certain props like plushies in our pictures as long as they LOOK like actual plushies and not a real animal. (and are not the focus of the image unless its a -living plushie- character.)

:bulletred: Only 2 submissions per week to avoid over flood.

:bulletred: Do not submit artwork to the featured folder, only the maids can choose the artwork that will be featured in the group.

:bulletred: Do Not submit work that is done on lined paper or is photographed unless it is an Integral part of the picture. We require that images be 'cleaned' up before submitting.

:bulletred: Deviations found "In Storage" Will be removed to make room for others~ :3

Can you please explain to me why this submission was declined? She is a bipedal anthro, not a kemonomimi, and I submitted her to the Art Collection:

Whoops, I apologise, first time submitting something myself and I think I put a wing-it full color image in the member's reference sheets folder by mistake. Sorry about that.

For the "colored work only" rule, what if the character is entirely covered in neutral colors, specially white?
