July's Theme Winner:
Adventures in PupsittingChris cleaned his sneakers off on the Brewtons’ doormat as he waited to be let inside.  He wondered if all werewolf families had the same “Wipe Your Paws!” doormat at their homes or just the ones he knew.  Soon enough, the door opened and Mr. Brewton waved him inside.
“Hey there!  You’re just in time,” Mr. Brewton said. “We were worried it’d take you a bit longer to get here.”
“No worries Mr. B!” Chris replied as he set his duffle bag down in the foyer and kicked off his shoes. “I took the Yamaha so I wouldn’t have to pedal all the way over.”
Mrs. Brewton greeted Chris as she wheeled a suitcase to the door.  “Hello Chris, how’s your summer been?”
“Pretty normal so far, I can’t complain.  Got some books to get through before the school year starts,” Chris said. “I’m just glad I could help you out.”
The couple chuckled and gave

Hey. Um, I had a couple questions. One, Can I join? I've watched different artists from this group for a very long time, and I'd love to be here. Two, how do I submit art to the group?
3EJP Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, I looked up in the rules and I think I figured out why my artwork had been declined. The artwork of mine is good in general, and I think the reason is my werewolf design had a tad too much muscle in them, isn't it?

My vision on them is that werewolves are really strong and powerful and a lot of muscle show the strength and power my artwork can provide. So, I think I can understand that, didn't I?
WoofyArcticwolf Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2015  Student Writer
Hello, thanks for asking us! :D Actually, here on the main page you can see our rules on types of werewolves : "Unlike other groups, ALL TYPES of werewolves and anthropomorphic wolves are welcome here! As long as the submissions follow the rules below." So, your overly muscular werewolves are actually more than welcome here. We love all werewolves of any shape, size, and type.

Our group accepts submissions based on a vote between moderators. I cannot speak for the other mods, and I myself was not one of the mods to vote on your artwork. Its possible that your artwork did not meet our high standards of quality, but I don't know for sure. We hope you don't take this personally and instead continue to make and improve your artwork. Thanks! :)

Hey, I'm a member and I'm just curious, why was my werewolf art declined?
WoofyArcticwolf Featured By Owner Edited Nov 1, 2015  Student Writer
Hi! :D Thank you for submitting your artwork to our gallery, sorry your art was declined. As a moderator I cannot speak for the other mods, but if you didnt know, submissions to this group are voted upon by several mods. See the group FAQ and Submission guidlines pages for info on what qualifies and what does not. But agian, while I cannot speak for the other mods, I myself really enjoyed your pic. However, personally, I felt it didn't meet the group's quality standards. I've sent a PM to you describing why. Hope this helps and thank you for submitting your artwork! :D
280077s Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Ah, thank you for the reply, some people don't even message back when I ask innocent questions, so it means a lot.
JoeyLiverwurst Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
I just want to add:  so often these questions are to start arguments, I am reluctant to try to answer them.  It's a breath of fresh air to see someone respond without an attack, so thank you back.  :)

Very welcome! :D

I'm a member and I'm curious, has anyone thought of adding a folder specifically for female werewolves and/ or gentle, loving, or guardian werewolves?
WoofyArcticwolf Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2015  Student Writer
I'm certainly not against it, but it would largely be a redundant folder. If a given pic shows an anthro gentle wolf, then it already applies to the anthro folder, for example. Most of the folders are about the specific medium involved too, so if its a sculpture of a happy wolf, then it already goes to the sculpture/physical-medium folder. If you look through the folders we have already you can find plenty of guardian and/or "cuddle" wolves. :D

Female werewolves, like male werewolves, are given no specifically unique treatment and are found throughout the group in whatever folders their artwork applies to.
