Good afternoon, I would like to ask, I am having issues with submitting my picture sto your grou recently. For a week my pictures were not accepted neither rejected, did I put them into wrong folders? I was putting most of them into Anthro one.
Zarin-Arovail Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Can you please link me to the deviations you received no response on?
BUGHS-22 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
It was more which expired then. But recently it is these two:
Natailor Races by BUGHS-22
Never lose Faith by BUGHS-22

I both tried to submit into "Antro" because I don't know where it should belong to.
Zarin-Arovail Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The top one belongs in References, while the bottom belongs in Anthro. I'm not sure why they were let to expire. If this happens again you can note the group about it.

hello, sorry, I don't know in which folder I can submit this: Force and Youth Sweating a little... 
BUGHS-22 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Well I am kinda confused. My creatures are not similar to any type of creatures like canine, feline whatever.
So I was submitting it into "Other Assorted Creatures"
You declined it and submitted it into "Equine and Cervidae Creatures". But why?? Hardivaars and many other creatures from Sigrania are NOT equine! Most of them are birds or creatures with HOOVES but nothing else on them is equine related. They are simply more like dogs/lions with horse/deer legs and also they have two parts of body similar like centaurs.
So what folder should I submit it??? Or why Equine and Cervidae??
Thank you.

On mixed creatures sometimes it falls down to a which looks the most like a fitting category.  

For example:
Hardivaar Racing games by BUGHS-22
On this piece containing the mentioned creatures much of the quad half features a lot of equine anatomy, not just the legs but also the chest and rear.  The belly area looks more like an even mix between canine/equine though.  And the upper torso is pretty human anatomy/canine anatomy based from what I can see.  But a lot of the movement in this suggests equine like gait, so the over all appearance looks like it fits under equine the best.  There's clearly other anatomy going on, I'd say canine is the second strongest visually, but the equine is a bit more of a predominate feature, so they would be filed under the Equines & Cervines.

When an item is sorted into another folder it's not to say you're creations are that, but visually they fit there the best.  Not all of the items in the equine/cervine folder are purely of those two.  Quite a few are like your's have have features pulled from different types of animal anatomy.  It simply becomes a best fit scenario, and is not meant to dictate what class you say/decide your creatures are at all.  In fact antelopes would also be redirected there, even though they are not cervines or equines at all, but visually they are very similar.  We actually redirect many of the "Other Assorted Creatures" submissions to one of the other folders so it does not simply become a catch all.  It was created to help with artist who did creatures with influence from animals we do not have folders for, in example bears, cattle or rats would all fit nicely in the Other folder as they have no other folder to be in. 

Hopefully that helped clear up the reasoning for you :)
BUGHS-22 Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Ok then. Thank you for your time for explanation. Now I will submit hardivaars only there.
EvlonArts Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
No problem :)  
And yeah that'll make your submissions go through much faster instead of waiting for an approval only to be told it needs to be moved, moving it and waiting again. :>
