Stick-a-cides?...Not sure what that is, but basically if you have a fictional species you've created and you feel it's ok for others to draw it if they want, this would be the place to submit it...

KK. :aww:

I read the rules and confused myself thinking "all my deviations must have a fictional species." But my friend corrected me and told me I chould chose to submit it to the group. ^^;.

im writing a book and my creatures are amazingly different. can I join?
AzeFish Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
No problem, as long as you're comfortable letting others use your design to draw, this is for open fictional species, no private species...
TeardropDragon Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
oh good. because my group is about teaching people how to draw. hmmm another place to dump my sketches. I'm just kidding. They will look orderly
AzeFish Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hehe, no problem...
Otter2347 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2010   General Artist
Question: I read the rules and I do have a made up species, but I also write a Fantasy book and have a stick-a-cide series, am I allowed to continue them if I'm a member?
AzeFish Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Any species is acceptable, as long as you're willing to allow others to recreate it...
Otter2347 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010   General Artist
Yeah, so far there are only 4 beautifairies, and they were all created by me. :iconimnothappyplz:
