:star: :star: :star: Group Rules :star: :star: :star:

:bulletblack:1 Join! This group will be great, and will continue to grow with your help!

:bulletgreen:2 Please submit your art, or become a watcher to see the awesome stuff that'll be going into our galleries.
This is a quality-based group, so please submit your best works! Even if your piece is declined, don't take it personally. Instead take it as a challenge to get better! ;P Remember though, please submit things to their proper folders. If you are unsure of where to put it, just submit it to the folder you think it belongs and the admins will move it if necessary, or simply, ask us! :) New pieces are submitted to the Featured folder each month, hand-picked by the admins, so keep an eye out and see if your piece will make it!

:bulletblack:3 Please remember to make your OC's original and to put a lot of thought into them!
Try to make them fit into the Warriors world too, meaning try be light on unnatural colored cats, jewelry, humanized hair, superpowers, ect. They are cats, not some 'advanced' species. Cats from FanClans are allowed.

:bulletgreen:4 No base art, at all! We all know every single one of you is a better artist than that!
Any art submitted using a base will be denied. Bases are okay to edit and get the general idea of what you want a character to look like, but not to submit as your own. If you think your art skills are lacking, don't believe it for a minute! Practice: it's what every successful artist did to get where they are today. Just remember to TAKE YOUR TIME and practice to make good quality art and bring your OC's to life, all of your effort and patience will pay off. :D So, we challenge you to work on original art and submit the best of your abilities to our galleries!

:bulletblack:5 We will under no certain terms allow art thieves!
One of the worst things you can do to an artist is steal their original creations and call them your own. If anyone is caught stealing OC's or fanart, you will be banned. OC's with SIMILAR fur patterns or a similar name is understandable, just remember to make sure you're putting the 'O' in OC when making your character.

:bulletgreen:6 No bullying, flaming, or telling others that their art or characters suck.
It will not, by any means, be tolerated and you will be banned. This is a positive place for fans of the Warriors series and we need your help to keep it that way. :)

:bulletblack:7 No advertising allowed!
Please don't advertise your art on our page or submit something that asks people to view your art. If we accept your art, then that means we like it and, since we are a group that promotes good art, then that means your artwork is great since it is in our galleries! So, in a way, we advertise for you! :D

:bulletgreen:8 Recommend a friend!
Do you know someone who's a really good artist? Feel free to recommend them to this group! We're always looking for new members to join our ranks as the elite!

:bulletblack:9 Have fun!
This group is here for the fans to interact, post art, and talk about this great fandom! Feel free to leave comments, we love your feedback. ;P

For those of you wanting to make an OC but coming to some road blocks, these sites can help!

Cat Maker Flash
I'm sure most of you have found this flash game already, but for those of you who haven't, check out this wonderful game made by Neikoish! Remember, this tool is great for figuring out what your cat should look like, but we encourage you to only use it as reference and not post it as your own!

No problem!
xXWhite-Wolf-ArtXx Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
if i comlete a ych of bloodclan, but there are cats with unnatural/ unrealistic colours, can i still submit it?
VectorSigma101 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
I don't think so, but can you please send us a link? It probably won't meet our guidelines, but I just want to make sure.
xXWhite-Wolf-ArtXx Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I will once it's completed :)
Deku-Kitty Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2016  Student Digital Artist
I was super sad when I thought my Brokenstar drawing was declined, but then I realized you had requested to add the drawing to your gallery then most likely realized I had already submitted it. Stop scaring me like that! XD
VectorSigma101 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
XD My bad! Sometimes I have a bad habit of requesting submissions when the user already requested their art to be submitted. And I can't accept it twice; a pop-up literally appears whenever I try (you already accepted this deviation you idiot) so I have no choice but to decline it. XD Again, sorry about that! It occasionally happens whenever I'm tired. 

Don't tempt me to do it again lol
Deku-Kitty Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Don't worry about it, if anything I found the whole situation funny.
