Because I feel it's necessary to give our members (heck, everyone) a reminder now and again as to what belongs where in our gallery and to clarify some folders that may be confusing to some people. Additionally, and though it is unavoidable, people still seem to submit works to folders that aren't associated with their art and I would like to clarify the purpose of each folder!

Most of the text below is copied from the previous Submission Guidelines journal… with some edits.

Digital art V7 (or later)

Art finalized or created entirely on the computer go here. If it was sketched on paper and completed digitally on a device (computer, phone, tablet) goes here. (ART MADE WITH TRADITIONAL MEDIUMS DOES NOT GO HERE.)

Traditional art V3 (or later)

Completed pictures done entirely on paper with copics, colored pencils, crayons, paint, any traditional mediums go here. (DIGITAL ART MADE ON A DEVICE DOES NOT GO HERE.)

Artisan crafts

Necklaces, rings, clay/stone/etc. statues, covers, knitting, needlework, etc. those kinds of jewelry and cute items go here.


Dragons with a humanoid body shape go here. (MATURE CONTENT IS NOT ALLOWED HERE, clotheless dragons are ok, just make sure there are no bits showing.)


Works in progress/uncompleted works go here, traditional or digital are accepted.

Fan Art

If this is art of a trademarked character such as Spyro, How to train your dragon, Dragon-type Pokemon, Eragon etc. then it goes here.


Any writings/types of fanfiction (poems/short stories/novels/etc.) go here.


Comic pages, graphic novels, and covers (aka pictures with multiple panels inside that tell a story) go here.

Reference sheets

Drawings geared towards specifically depicting a character's appearance, features, bio, abilities, etc. (most commonly drawn in a side view, or with multiple views and a color key) go here, traditional or digital content is accepted.


Dragons and dragon-like characters that are currently available for adopting go here. (PLEASE ONLY SUBMIT OPEN ADOPTS, NOT PREVIOUSLY CLOSED ONES.)


Mature work such as nudity, heavy blood and gore, sexual content, sensitive material, etc. all go here. (Out of courteosy of other members (and particularly younger members) PLEASE PUT A MATURE FILTER ON THESE WORKS AS NEEDED.)


If it doesn't fit in any other folder, submit to this one.


Doodles you don't plan on finishing. sketches, stupid things, classroom doodles, etc. Sketches can also go into the sketechs/Wips folder, but are accepted here as well.


Any art that shows a process of how you draw dragons' anatomy and other dragon-related things such as a body, paws, heads, horns, wings, eyes, etc. will go here. (This includes panels showing the process, gifs, and videos alike.)


Journal skins ONLY WITH DRAGON CONTENT goes here.

Animations and pixel art

Gifs and other things that move or works that specifically rely on pixels to portray a dragon character such as run cycles, lip sync, pixel dolls, icons, etc. will go here.


Any art that isn't 2-Dimensional or in real time and are made with 3D programs such as Maya, Zbrush, Blender, 3DS Max, Garry's Mod, etc. go here.

Temporary Folders (Secret Santa, Contests, etc.)

These folders are only open at specific times, such as during the holidays when we engage the community in a secret santa or when contests are held. (THESE FOLDERS ARE ONLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS WHEN THESE EVENTS ARE GOING ON.)


Journals: Journals (commissions, information, contests, etc) won't be allowed to submit and will be automatically declined, also deviations about commission information. This is a group strictly dedicated to dragon art not for advertising.
Non-Dragon art: This group is strictly dedicated to dragon art, no matter how good nor advanced your art is, it must be dragon art if you want to submit it to our group.
To Closed folders: If they are closed, they are either expired events or full. do not submit here, your submissions will be declined.
To old contest folders: If the contest is over, please don't submit to these folders past the deadline. Keep an eye out for active contests!

Please respect these rules before submitting anything or simply asking the admins a question, thank you!


Best Regards.

Hello! I'm an awkward dragon lover who finally got up the courage to branch out and join some groups, and decided this one looked the most welcoming as far as posting a "hello" went. At least on this site, for now I've mostly been posting fanart (even though I do have plenty of OCs that may or may not make an appearance someday.) I mostly draw Flight Rising dragons, but I might finally venture over to Wings of Fire and some others before too long.

So anyway, hello!
