Welcome to DarlingDames (and Charming Gents)!
This is a group for appreciating the charming and the darling characters deviants have to offer. Many groups these days have cut down on what species they allow in to a few with very specific attributes. While neko girls, kitsune, and elves are highly popular, other species and creatures need love just as well. I have always found the restriction to one or two species boring. There is so much out there. DarlingDames allows all male and female characters no matter the species.
While I personally am not a fan of highly restrictive groups, there are some restrictions here members will need to follow. Unlike my main group All-Is-Permitted , DarlingDames is not an everything here brand of group. It is mostly geared towards characters themselves to showcase a sensual side rather than a racy one. You are allowed mature content and fully nude characters. What we are looking for is more of a tease in sensuality rather than sexualization itself.
Examples include: fav.me/d9eolcf fav.me/da5gqgm
First and foremost: SUBMIT TO THE CORRECT FOLDER. Your deviation will be declined automatically if you do not.
Respect your admins.
No art bashing, or flaming of any kind. You will be banned from the group.
Art theft will be reported, removed, and you will be banned from the group.
Do not spam the comment section or group notes. I mean this by sending the same message repeatedly, asking questions not pertaining to the group, advertizing yourself/scams/websites, asking for faves/watches/points, or starting RP's in the comments. They will be flagged as spam, removed, and if you persist, you will be banned.
No hate art of any kind.
One submission per day per deviant.
Submissions to Featured are closed. Submissions to favorites are also closed for the time being.
If you wish to affiliate with the group, send a request. While your group may not pertain to our theme, we will be happy to offer support.
Admission to the admins is given by the founder solely. I will invite those I believe will serve the group best. Please do not ask if you may join on as a contributor or co-founder unless you are a close friend, or have a copious amount of experience.
I am not a fan of quality control groups as many tend to focus solely on professional artists. While this group will have minor quality control, it will not be very rigid. So long as you put effort into your piece, there is a high chance it will be accepted.
If your deviation IS declined, you are welcome to inquire why on the deviation submission process. Please do not spam the notes or comments asking why. Please do not argue if your deviation is declined due to a perceived quality issue, content issue, or an incorrect submission.
Submissions featuring a background with no visible character will be automatically declined. Your submission may contain a detailed background, half finished background, or no background so long as a character is present and visible.
Adoptables are allowed.
Fanart is allowed so long as it fits with the rules.
Literature is allowed so long as it pertains to a character. If the character in question (such as with poetry) comes into question of existence, it may be declined.
The quality of the deviation must meet the standard of the admins. The staff will range from varying levels to ensure (I hope) an open set of perception. If your deviation is rushed, heavily deformed, or overly exaggerated it may be declined. If you find your deviations declined regularly, it is nothing personal. Most of the staff understand how difficult creating can be. You are welcome to ask how to improve or for any advice in general.
We will NOT accept deviations depicting vore, expansion, heavily detailed/focal point foot fetish work, rape, execution, sexualized battle, derogatory depictions of men or women, or heavy gore.
Deviations depicting outrageous breast sizes will also NOT be allowed. They tend to border on expansion territory.
Sexualized depictions of children, fanart or otherwise, will NOT be allowed and will be reported. This includes aged up versions of child characters.
Blatant pornography is NOT allowed as it is against dA's rules. This will include poorly censored works that are clearly pornographic. If the admin in question refers to your art as too sexual in nature, do not argue with them.
Photography is only allowed if it is a picture of your character. Please do not submit images of yourself, cosplay, pets, or anything that doesn't pertain to a character.
Please submit correctly. Pay attention, read the rules closely, ask if you're confused.
The definition of the original character and fan-made character folders goes like this: If your character was made from a preexisting video game, movie, anime, show, book, or anything that you did not create yourself, it belongs in fan-made characters. I consider an FC and an OC different. I'm not saying one is better than the other, I just personally consider them as something different. (Monie)
In the future, I may include folders for the varying species, but for now, these simple folders will suffice.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask myself or any of the admins. We only bite when hungry, cranky, sleepy, excited, or bored.
