Rules & Notices:

:bulletgreen: Clearly state somewhere within the deviation's description who the character(s) belong to. Art that is not marked will be declined.
:bulletgreen: Make sure to submit art to the correct folder. Galleries each have a description explaining which submissions belong there if you're unsure, or please just ask.
:bulletgreen: Mature content must have a warning applied to it.
:bulletgreen: Follow all of DeviantArt's rules - of course!

This group does not allow the following:
:bulletred: Fanart. I'm sure it's the same in most other OC centric groups.
:bulletred: Characters from any pop culture or fandom. I'm sorry, but this group focuses on original characters from original stories.
:bulletred: Characters for sale. Sorry, but adoptables have no place in this group. If you want to promote your adopt there are groups for that exact reason.

We hope you have a great time. By sticking to these rules, your experience here at OC-Artists should be all the more rewarding.

In relation to the last journal, there are still some people leaving and I've come to the conclusion that it's has to do with the rules and how they're actually being enforced with a dedicated founder.
I would just like to suggest to anyone thinking about leaving to think about instead join my other group (the one I actually started) CharacterConnoisseur (especially if the issue is fan-characters)

:iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur:

And while we're on the subject, I'd love some advise on how to improve this group to make less people wanna leave?

Hi, I submitted this drawing Mascot by LandonBridge  to the Animals OC folder, but it was declined. Why's that?

I don't really consider 'mascots' to be an OC
LandonBridge Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2015   General Artist
Well, he's also my OC in my web series The Under-Cats.
inSYNCinSANITY Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
you might wanna add that then, coz as he is, he can't be accepted into the group

Yes you can. This group doesn't have a commission folder so just the female folder will do.

Thank you ^^

I wonder, why my illustration was declined?
inSYNCinSANITY Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Don't know what illustration you're referring to but I'm assuming it was a fan character?
anitastyle Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Student Digital Artist… it was this one, Its not a fan character, like you see, is totally original; and in the description its clearly said :/
