:star: PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS REGARDING SUBMISSION DECLINES ON THE SUBMISSIONS PROCESS. We need to see what adopt you are asking about before we can actually give you a proper answer :star:

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:REMOVE CLOSED ADOPTS FROM THE GROUP PLEASE! :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:


:bulletpink:NUMBER 1 RULE: ALL submissions require an art credit. If the art is your own you will still need to claim it as your own, if you used a base, credit must be given to the base's original owner, please make sure it's visible, if it's written so small that it's not readable that isn't proper credit. Keep in mind that you must comply with the base owner's rules, too.
:bulletpink:Please make sure that the credit is clearly written either at the bottom or top of the description as it makes things easier for us. Watermarks and signatures on the art DO NOT count as credit as we don't always see them, we look at the description! Please make sure it's there
Acceptable forms of credit:
Art (C) -insert username here-
Art + Design (C) -insert username here-
Art (C) me
Obviously as stated above, if using a base link to the base or the bases creator.
This is not acceptable "lineart belongs to respected owner" credit with

:star:Quality Control Guidelines:star:

Quality Control Guidelines:star:The following will not be accepted::star:
:bulletpink: Solid colored designs. Unless it is a design for an original species or somehow original looking. We will not accept plain black cats or plain white dogs with little to no colour variation or markings to make them unique. This goes for naturally existing animal colorations as well, for example if it's a squirrel that looks as a squirrel does in the wild then it won't be accepted etc.
:bulletpink: Maker/Game Adopts. Anything made with a game is not allowed, even if the game gives permission we will not accept them
:bulletpink: Adoptables drawn on lined notebook paper
:bulletpink: Adoptables with hasty or messy colouring. Be mindful that you are trying to sell these, the nicer they are the better they sell.
:bulletpink: Adoptables using traced lineart, for example copies from MLP or The Lion King screen shots, or tracing OTHER PEOPLE'S work (this is especially a problem with the Fan Adoptables folder)
:bulletpink: Unfini

:star:Submission & Folder Guidelines:star:

Submission and Folder Guidelines:bulletpink:Featured - Members are not allowed to submit to this folder. If we feel that your work stands out we will invite it here.
:bulletpink:Canines and Hyenas - Wolves, dogs, foxes, hyenas, etc. belong here.
:bulletpink:Felines - All cat and big cat species belong here. Traced Lion King bases are NOT permitted
:bulletpink:Humanoids/Humanoids 2 - Humanoids are either humans or creatures that have a human appearance. There is a lot of confusion between these and Anthros. To decide where your adoptables belong, check whether they appear more human-like or more like an animal. If they look more like animals standing on their back legs, they probably belong in the Anthro folder.
:bulletpink:Fantasy Creatures and Hybrids - Creatures of myth and legend belong here, as well as creatures that are mixtures of more than one species of animal, this folder also includes Demons and Angels, wizards, mages or anything magical or elemental in nature etc. If it i

I'm not sure what folder I should submit this in:…

If you're going to make these as an original species then I'd say the Original Species folder. If not, then the Humanoids folder :)

Nope, she's not an OS, so to the Humanoid folder we go! :w00t:

Is this group still active? Something I submitted about a week ago just expired, so I was curious about the status of the group.
This was the deviation ~  characteradopters.deviantart.c…
