Welcome to WatercolorAnimals group! We focus on traditional art, done with watercolors. The theme of this group is animals- both real and fantasy! You can also submit artworks showing games or anime characters. The only rule: they must be animals or animal-like. If You like to paint with watercolors or just want to find artists who use this technique, feel free to join our group! Anyone can bacome a member!

What do You have to know:

◆Please submit only Your best works, not Your whole gallery!
◆Your work must be done 100% by traditional way! Only things You can use Photoshop for are: fixing contrast, brightness, crop.
◆Only art done by yourself is acceptable.
◆Fan art folder is for characters from games/movies etc. Fantasy creatures are OCs, Your own characters, species created by someone from DeviantART, or just random dragons/unicorns...
◆We accept works done by people on various experience levels, but still, these have to be done neatly (5 mins works are not accepted)

What is accepted:

❤ Works done with watercolor. Watercolor mixed with ink is allowed too. Still watercolors must cover most of the picture!
❤ Finished works in good quality, scanned esthetically.
❤ We accept both real animals and fantasy creatures!
What does "finished work" mean?
Finished painting is created with attention. If work has no background, it has detailed characters. It can be full character or portrait, but not levitating head or another parts of character's body!

Thanks for accepting my request! I have a painting of a centaur, would that be permitted in "fantasy" or is it a bit too human?

Hello, we don't care what you use to take photos - if you manage, it could be even a potato. ;) However, we accept only photos that high quality - no shadows, good light, etc. If your photos are too dark, just play with lightness/contrast in any graphic program. :)
FuzzyMaro Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2016
Yes, we accept photos done with phone but they can't be blurred. They also need to be cropped and illuminated by daylight. Do not send photos of a painting laying on desk beyond art supplies etc. Crop just an artwork! Thank You very much :D
