Hello and welcome! We hope you enjoy your stay here! If there is an artwork you see here that you love, please consider finding the artist who made it and telling them personally! :)

Rules and guidelines: (If any admins or members want something added or changed, you can note the founder and figure it out. ^^)

1: As with most groups, please be polite and friendly to others. Art is a form of self-expression, and no artwork is invalid. If we see any member being rude or unkind inside this group, they will be given a warning. Failing that, they will be removed from the group.

2: Please try to submit your artwork to the proper folder. If we get enough people saying they can't find a fitting folder, we may create a "Misc." folder, or new, more specific ones.

3: I've said it once, twice, and now a third time: Nothing NSFW please. So no splatter/guts/nudity/revealing undergarments/etc. Mild blood and guys without shirts are a stretch. Anything more than that is definitely out. We don't take stuff that requires a maturity warning. ^^

Concerning the wings (May be subject to revision)
Here's what we consider to be some traits of a realistic wing:

-A proper amount of joints (shoulder, elbow, wrist)
-At least a basic layer system for the feathers. Here's a (simple and sketchy) example of the different feather types on a wing: Far better diagrams can be found elsewhere on the internet, but this one gives you an idea.
-Realistic placement of the wings in the shoulder area. Different tutorials will tell you slightly different placements, but somewhere between the shoulders is a pretty safe bet. We're not too picky on this one, but please no wings on the lower back/pelvis/feet/etc. We're going for realistic flight, remember.

This group mainly focuses on winged humanoids, but if you have a drawing of, say, a winged dog, (or maybe even just a plain bird!), all that matters is that the wings are realistic.
Similarly, we accept bat and insect wings as well as bird wings--so long as they are realistic.

Most importantly, we hope you have as much fun admiring these lovely artworks as we did!
Any questions, please let us know!

What counts as realistic? Meaning that the character could fly (ie. correct wingspan/height/weight) or that the wings themselves are properly jointed, feathered, ect.?

Both, ideally... but we're pretty forgiving at this point. ^^

Admin sounds fine to me, I'll see if I can get you voted in ^^
It may take some time, however, we're a pretty sleepy group ATM ^^;
Thanks for offering your help!
