: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!

...when I finally had time to do March's it was already almost April so I decided to wait until then...forgive me...

FIRSTS off, here are our newest submissions to the Featured folder!

SECOND, the third book of the A Vision of Shadows arc, Shattered Sky, comes out on 11 April 2017! Also, the next collection of short stories, Legends of the Clans, which contains Spottedleaf's Heart, Pinestar's Choice, and Thunderstar's Echo, also comes out on 11 April 2017.

Blurb for Shattered Sky:
ShadowClan has fallen. A group of rogues now rules the pine forest, and their cruel leader, Darktail, will not stop until he has conquered the rest of the Clans. Alderheart is more certain than ever that their only hope is to find the lost SkyClan and fulfill StarClan’s prophecy—before Darktail’s vicious reign puts an end to the warrior Clans forever.

Blurb for Legends of the Clans:
Spottedleaf’s Heart: Young apprentice Spottedpaw is determined to become a warrior...until she realizes that to save her Clan, she must become its next medicine cat.

Pinestar’s Choice: Discover what drove Pinestar, once leader of ThunderClan, to abandon the warrior code, betray his Clan, and become a kittypet.

Thunderstar’s Echo: In the earliest days of ThunderClan, its first leader faces down a new threat—and forges a new tradition for all the warrior Clans.


THIRD, the cover and blurb for the fourth book of the A Vision of Shadows arc, Darkest Night, has been revealed! It is scheduled to be released on 7 November 2017.

***SPOILERS for Darkest Night and Shattered Sky***
Blurb for Darkest Night:
SkyClan has returned to its rightful place among the other four warrior Clans, hoping to find a new territory to call home. But not every cat is convinced that this is where SkyClan belongs. The careful balance around the lake is more fragile than ever before—and the fate of all the warrior Clans remains uncertain.
Cover:… ( of those cats looks familiar ;P)…

FOURTH, the working title for the fourth book of the A Vision of Shadows arc has been revealed! It will be called River of Fire. There is no scheduled release date yet.…

FIFTH, the cover and blurb for the next super edition Tigerheart's Shadow, has been revealed! It is scheduled to be released on 5 September 2017.

Blurb for Tigerheart's Shadow:
In this super edition, set during the events of A Vision of Shadows, one of ShadowClan’s most loyal warriors must go on a perilous quest—one that will take him and the ThunderClan warrior Dovewing to the heart of a dangerous territory unlike any they have seen before.

Long one of the proudest warrior Clans, ShadowClan now faces an unprecedented period of darkness and uncertainty. Its deputy, Tigerheart, is determined to help his Clan survive. But a crossroads is fast approaching…and when their medicine cat has an ominous vision, Tigerheart discovers that the only way to save his Clan may be to leave it behind forever.


SIXTH, let's welcome our newest members! :D
