Welcome to the Art Of The Paw And Fang!


Established as a club on March 8th, 2004. Our focus is on being a community where Advanced, experienced and gifted artists share quality wolf artwork. What do we mean by quality? It might sound unfair, but you have to submit work that has obvious noticeable effort and ability, we will be picking up on things like Anatomy, Golden Sections, Quality of lines, Backgrounds and over all feel.
Why do we have this?So that watching our group means each deviation will be something worth viewing. Joining our group means you have the confidence and talent to meet our goals. If you think your good enough, you're encouraged to join!

JOINING
:bulletgreen: 1. In your request, give us the links to 3 pieces that are representative of your work. Choose carefully and follow the standards for submitted work below.
:bulletgreen: 2. Wait for group acceptance. Sometimes our Alphas can take a few days to make a decision. Upon acceptance you may place our icon in your Deviant Journal if you wish.
:bulletgreen: 3. Member artwork submissions are also subject to Alpha scrutiny.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT:
:bulletred: AS OF MAY 2013 WE DO NOT ACCEPT 'FURRY' WOLVES, The only acceptable form we take will be awesome well drawn and thought out anthro/werewolf type ones, each case will be reviewed when submitting to the group.
:bulletblue: 1. Notebook "I did this in math class" doodles; WHY? Because if you don't care enough to place your work on decent white paper, then why should viewers take the time to look at it. Notebook lines take away from the quality of the image and render it base. For more commentary on notebook doodles, look at the journal of Keyoyia at keyoyia.deviantart.com/journal… . I think most would find it helpful.
:bulletblue: 2. Messy Sketches; WHY? Because this is a gallery geared towards more finished work. Graphite works are more than welcome, as are inks that will be colored at a later date because they have the look of being finished and are interesting enough as they are to be artwork on their own.
:bulletgreen: 3. Admins reserve the right to decline posting artwork that they feel is not suitable or finished enough to be posted. Hopefully this will give all of us the incentive to do our best and give wolves the beautiful representation such magnificent creatures deserve.

SUBMISSION STANDARDS: Deviant Art Rules Apply:
:bulletblue: 1. Submissions must be your work.
:bulletblue: 2. We accept wolves, wolf-like dogs such as huskies malamutes and other Nordic breeds, coyotes wild breeds and mixes of all of these are welcome. Anthros, weres, and feral morphs are also all welcome. Hybrids should contain noticeable wolf anatomy. Alphas can decide acceptance on a case by case basis.
:bulletblue: 3. Gore is welcome (if your 18 or over).
:bulletblue: 4. Nudity is welcome (if your 18 or over).
:bulletblue: 5. Hate pieces and or slander of views beliefs or others are not welcome and will be screened out. Art may not "bash" any religion, race or sexual preference. Take yours squabbles elsewhere. Alphas have full authority to decline anything they deem necessary to maintain group harmony.
:bulletblue: 6. Fan Art of characters is welcome (Balto, White Fang, etc.) as long as you credit your sources per Deviant Art rules. Copyright laws will be upheld. Document all inspirations correctly.
:bulletblue: 7. Photography is not allowed. It may be art but it is not the artwork themed in this club. We will take photo-manipulations if they are of wolves, and show skill in both editing, and the style of the actual piece. You must show some effort with this, don't just slap your drawing on a photo.
:bulletblue: 8. Literature and poetry is not allowed. Although poetry can be beautiful and art as well, this is a visually based art club. There are many other poetry themed clubs out there. But if you have artwork with poetry on it, or in its description, that is allowed.
:bulletblue: 9. Limit your submissions to 1 or 2 at a time. Why? We promote quality over quantity and less is more. Consider what the watchers want to see.
:bulletblue: 10. Submit Line-Art to the Character Sheets, Tutorials, Comics and Misc Folder. For further on folders see our journal entry: artofthepawandfang.deviantart.… Icons may also be submitted to the MISC folder, however, substantial effort must be evident.
:bulletred: Our Alphas retain the right to decline any submission or membership application when it is deemed in the benefit of the club to do so. Submissions or members that portray the club or the subject matter of the club ( I.E. wolves ) in denigration and besmirchment will be dealt with accordingly.

Because of the rising submissions of pixel art, I've made a new folder exclusively for all pixel art, animations, icons, and so on. From now on, please submit all your related art into this folder, instead of the "no backgrounds" folder.

Do you accept coloured animations with backgrounds? Like this - dragondodo.deviantart.com/art/… If yes, what folder would it go in?

echiax Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, no one else is active at the moment, so I say yes to letting them in. You can submit them to the digital folder, since we don't have one for animations.

SarahScala Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would say "Thanks for your submission it's very creative but unfortunately it is too much pastry to wolf ratio, we don't accept Nyan animals" etc etc :3

I hope it is okay to submit my latest comic page into this group even if the main character was not present on that page, and he is canine (wolf) on this page there are felines. Is it okay?

Nope, we only accept wolves in all submissions even if it's a continuation of a comic.

I'm not implying that their comic is bad in any way, you seem to have misunderstood the reply I gave.
To reiterate I was merely stating that the comic pages posted to this group need to include a wolf in the imagery as we are a wolf based group.
Any comic pages that lack the proper imagery of a wolf will not be accepted into the group.
