Welcome!

WELCOME

Are you a werewolf artist or aficionado? If you could be a werewolf, would you? Or are you simply a werewolf fanatic?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you should be a member of WerewolvesAtHeart, the largest werewolf group on deviantART!

Here we're devoted to the expression of our inner lycanthrope through art and the written word. We strive to provide werewolf fans with a collection of the best art and literature, so feel free to join the group and enjoy the submissions or even contribute to the pack!

Many different kinds/styles/genres of werewolves and anthropomorphic wolves are welcome here as long as the submissions follow the group Rules and Submission Guidelines (see below).

Rules and Submission Guidelines




:police: OUR GROUP HAS QUALITY STANDARDS! :police:



:bulletblue:Only completed, high-quality artwork is accepted. Please no WIP (work-in-progress) drawings, scrap images, rough sketches, coloring other artists' lineart (except collaborations), etc.

:bulletblue:All submissions are voted on by moderators. We do our best to be fair and consistent, but we're only human (sadly not werewolves yet). You may ask about why a given submission was declined, but please be courteous and avoid overly-argumentative tones when doing so. Moderator decisions are final.

:bulletblue: Stories/comics with multiple pages/chapters: only the first page/chapter will be accepted into the group. The idea is to receive initial exposure here in the group, at which point deviants can then watch your account directly in order to receive updates. This helps keep the gallery organized and avoids having many pages of the same story sent to our members' feeds.

:bulletblue:Contests & Theme challenges: All skill levels are allowed, just make sure they fit the theme of the contest. Submissions must be for the contest in question and not pre-existing work.

Read Group Rules People by sugarpoultry


:bulletred:No explicit nudity. "Gender bits" must be furred over if not covered with clothing

:bulletred:No strong sexual/fetish content (mild affection is fine)

:bulletred:No excessive violence (mild blood/gore is OK)

:bulletred:Please keep language clean in art/literature submissions and group comments

:bulletred:Please be civil to moderators and other members. Hostility, trolling, excessive questioning about denied submissions or other group matters may result in a ban

:bulletred:No spamming. This includes non-werewolf images, re-posting images that were already denied

:bulletred:Submissions must feature werewolves, generally in wolf/werewolf form or some stage of transformation (not just human form). Art and stories also including other non-werewolf or werewolf hybrid (horns, wings, etc.) characters is discouraged, but will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If not readily apparent, it helps to have the werewolf tag included with the submission or submission comments

:bulletred:Please use the correct gallery folder when submitting. If unsure, or if multiple folders could be appropriate, use your best judgement; moderators can move the submission later if needed. Please submit a given piece to only one folder. Only contest/theme challenge works should be submitted to those folders

The purpose of these rules is to build the best collection of werewolf content on deviantArt and to ensure that deviants of ALL AGES are able to enjoy it!

Actually, group rules state:

"Only completed...artwork is accepted. Please no WIP (work-in-progress) drawings, scrap images...etc."

In other words, we're mainly looking for completed work over studies/sketches.

Thanks for asking! :)

So Q: I've a comic where the main characters are shifters (or as I call them, 'Therians') and am wondering if that is acceptable for this group?

As they can shift at will, it is not the traditional werewolf transformation at the full moon. Their forms are also more feral than they are anthro - strong built and on all fours. There are also charrie's in this universe who you could classify as 'were-lions' or 'were-jackals' as the forms aren't restricted to wolves only.

Joining regardless because Im always doing wolf art and the arts here are all astounding! :D just wondering.

Awesome! We certainly accept comic strips into our group provided they meet our Standards ( werewolvesatheart.deviantart.c… ). As long as the larger focus is on the werewolves its okay to include other were-creatures. Lastly, we only accept the first chapter or title-page of a comic strip to avoid spam posting.

Thanks for joining :D

Hi!
I'd like to submit Ruthless by XxBattleLionessxX if possible, but I'm not sure how to right now as it isn't a contest entry. Are those the only kinds of submissions you are accepting right now?

Thanks!
