I'm not able to submit any art to this group, it's telling me I don't have permission? Is the group shut down, or is there a cleanup happening?
Toxic-the-Werewolf Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello, I was wondering, can I join this group? :) I've been into original species lately and I was wondering if my Nulfohtea (my fursona is a example of that species) and my upcoming character Tiemnulf species is allowed in this group (I'm planning to make those an open species)
Novarock Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2017  Professional General Artist
yes, that fits the criterias of open species :P you can join the group, just clic on join the group button and I'll accept your request, if you tried earlier, it might have expired as I had busy weeks lately.
SpiderWolfe Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
idk if y'all have noticed or not but there seems to be some art pieces in the folders that have nothing to do with the group and they may just be using the group for advertising purposes :/
Novarock Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2016  Professional General Artist
ho it might be! could you please send me the links, I'll manage the rest to clear the folder!
