Club Information and Rules

:star:Group icon by eliza1star, used with permission.:star:

:star:For art featuring OC (original character) warriors, see our other group :iconadvanced-warriorocs::star:

:star:All submissions go in the folder titled -Submit Here- and will be sorted by us if they are accepted:star:

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.

:bulletblue:SUBMITTING ART
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
:bulletred: Original characters (OCs)
:bulletred: Photos
:bulletred: Photomanipulations
:bulletred: Written works (stories, poems, fan fictions, etc)
:bulletred: Chibis, heavily stylized and/or ‘ragdoll’ anatomy (limbs where they shouldn’t be and distorted facial expressions not plausible in real felines)
:bulletred: Human and anthro warriors
:bulletred: Colored lineart, bases, or adoptables
:bulletred: WIPs
:bulletred: Lineart used multiple times
:bulletred: Stolen work (this will get you banned from the group, no questions asked)
:bulletred: Hate and anti-character artwork
:bulletred: Messy, rushed lineart, shading, and/or coloring
:bulletred: Characters with 'extreme' hair (hair the covers all or most of one eye or trails past the head)
:bulletred: 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
:bulletred: Photos of sketches that are blurry or overexposed
:bulletred: Traditional art that has been drawn on crumpled, torn, or heavily creased paper
:bulletred: Sketches on notebook or any other type of lined paper.
:bulletred: dA muro speedpaints

What we DO accept:
:bulletgreen: Slightly stylized, well drawn art with good anatomy
:bulletgreen: Clean traditional drawings and paintings
:bulletgreen: Clean digital drawings and paintings
:bulletgreen: Clean, shaded pencil drawings
:bulletgreen: 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.

These are other great clubs interested in similar art
Sorry to hit you guys with a new blog entry so soon, but it was...kind of necessary. I just wanted to let both the members and other admins know that I (the founder) have changed my username from Hollowbreeze to HighFlyingHawk to better match my YouTube channel, which this account is tied to. I know there was some confusion when I changed my username on my original account, so I just wanted to make sure no one gets confused if I need to answer comments. I'm the same person that made this group four years ago (jeez, has it really been that long?!) I just moved to a new account and then abruptly decided to change my username. Because I'm annoying like that.


Since we're here, here's a few quick reminders ;)

:bulletgreen: We do not accept OCs. You can submit those to our sister group Advanced-WarriorOCs but they don't belong here.
:bulletgreen: You don't have to ask to join the group. Advanced artist or art appreciator, everyone is welcome. All we ask is that you be kind to the other members of the group.
:bulletgreen: In the same vein, you do not have to ask to submit art. So long as it doesn't violate any major rules (no OCs, photos, written works, etc.) then it's fine. Now submitting does not guarantee that the picture will be accepted into the group, it just means it's up for consideration.
:bulletgreen: Please don't ask if a picture will be accepted into the group in the comments section. To find that out, you're going to have to submit it.
:bulletgreen: Please do not resubmit a picture unless it's been significantly edited in some way.
:bulletgreen: All submissions go in the folder labeled -Submit Here- and will be sorted by us if they are accepted.
:bulletgreen: Please don't advertise on our page, that's not what it's for.

I just wanted to check on the status of my submitted drawing. I don't mind if it's declined or accepted, I just want to be sure the group is still active so I can still submit art. ^^

Mapleshade (+Speedpaint) by DrakynWyrm

Though I'm pretty sure it meets the criteria for being accepted? XD

Unless I accidentally put it into the wrong folder or something. XD
