For art featuring OC (original character) warriors, see our other group
All submissions go in the Featured folder and will be sorted by us if they are accepted
Being a kid's series, Warriors has many fans, but this group is dedicated to featuring the best of the fan art on DA. I hope to make this the one stop for all more experienced artists who want to combine fine art with the Warriors series.
Anyone can join; you do NOT have to ask. We’d be happy to have you in this group. You don’t have to be an advanced artist to be a member, you just have to love Warriors and respect all other members. We are only accepting members right now, no other ranks than that.
We will be going through submissions with a fine-tooth comb, so don’t get your feelings hurt if your submission is declined. This is meant to be a group for collecting a select few pieces of art, and just because your art doesn’t get accepted doesn’t mean you aren’t a good artist. Here are a few submission guidelines:
What we DON’T accept
Original characters (OCs)
Written works (stories, poems, fan fictions, etc)
Chibis, heavily stylized and/or ‘ragdoll’ anatomy (limbs where they shouldn’t be and distorted facial expressions not plausible in real felines)
Human and anthro warriors
Colored lineart, bases, or adoptables
Lineart used multiple times
Stolen work (this will get you banned from the group, no questions asked)
Hate and anti-character artwork
Messy, rushed lineart, shading, and/or coloring
Characters with 'extreme' hair (hair the covers all or most of one eye or trails past the head)
Pieces of the cats body or face (like just an eye or just a paw) the picture should always include all or most of the character's face
Photos of sketches that are blurry or overexposed
Traditional art that has been drawn on crumpled, torn, or heavily creased paper
Sketches on notebook or any other type of lined paper.
dA muro speedpaints
What we DO accept:
Slightly stylized, well drawn art with good anatomy
Clean traditional drawings and paintings
Clean digital drawings and paintings
Clean, shaded pencil drawings
Advanced tutorials involving any cats, not just Warriors characters
(Don’t be offended by any of this. We are in no way saying that lacking the above requirements makes your art bad, it’s just not suitable for THIS group, but there are many other groups you might like.)
Anyone who breaks the rules three times or more will be kicked out of the group. This only applies to blatant rule breaking, such as submitting human Warriors or OCs, and NOT to art that doesn’t quite meet our standards. If you submit something wrong by accident, just let us know and it won't count against you.
We will affiliate with any group other than hate and anti-character groups. Just send a request.
Anyone can suggest a fave, whether the art is advanced or not (we’ll also accept original characters into the group’s faves). If I (the founder) think the art is suitable for the gallery, I’ll request to put it in our group gallery as well.
As mentioned above, anyone caught stealing art in any way will be banned from this group, no questions asked. Also, if your art isn't accepted, it's fine to ask why and to seek critique from the founders, but DO NOT whine and accuse us of being unfair. If your piece wasn’t accepted, there was a reason, so seek to improve, not to accuse us of injustice. Anyone who starts to harass the founders in a rude, unnecessary way will also be banned. Lastly, anyone caught trolling or being cruel to other artists (ANYWHERE on DA, not just in this group) will be banned without explanation. We will not tolerate any kind of cruelty here.
