Group Info

This club is dedicated to all fantasy creatures with wings, popular or not. You could stick wings on practically anything and it'd be welcome here!

:star: A few quick rules (hit the "More" button or go to the FAQ and Rules journal to see them all): :star:

1. Artwork submitted to this group MUST contain fantasy creatures with wings or fantasy beings with wings.
Winged dinosaurs are also okay since there is still a lot of speculation about how extinct animals looked when they were alive, and there are many different artistic interpretations of the possible colors and patterns of their skin, scales, and other features.

1a. Exception: Comic book pages from a story line that includes winged creatures won't be held to this rule as strictly; as long as SOME of the pages include visible wings, we'll allow all pages to be posted for the sake of continuity.

2. Artwork submitted on notebook paper will only be accepted in the Sketches and WIPs folder.

2a. Artwork needs to be rotated so that it is correctly oriented in a horizontal or vertical format, whichever is appropriate.

3. All mediums are acceptable. Traditional, digital, photomanipulation, literature - you name it. If you used it to make a winged fantasy creature, you can post it here.

4. Fanart is acceptable, as long as the being or creature has wings.

5. Real animals without fantasy elements are not acceptable. This is Winged *Fantasy* Club, remember.

6. Fins are not the same as wings. If your creature is a water-dwelling one that could not fly through the sky, then it will not be accepted here.

7. Fetish art/art with sexual themes can be submitted but may be denied depending on how graphic it is. (Please note that our Founder is a PRUDE!) It also has to have a mature rating, and it must not violate DA policies.

If you have questions, ask! You may post a comment or send the group a Note.

2014 Dec 30:  Everyone, the group :iconwinged-equines: is looking for one or more moderators, as the current owner will be away for a while.  If you are interested, please go have a look at the Winged-Equines group.    

Affiliated Groups' contest announcements will be posted in this journal whenever they are announced.  If anyone has contests coming up, let us know and we'll post them here.

Thank you, everyone, who took the time to leave me some feedback about this idea.  I have given it a good deal of thought, and I've decided that we will not open a folder for real winged things.  We will stick to a strictly fantasy/SF theme for this group.

Later, when I have more time, I would like to do some features for our affiliated groups that work with real winged things - art and photography both.  Several of those who commented said that it would be nice to have such resources available, and to know where to find them.  I think that's an awesome idea, and it's good exposure for our Affiliates.


Hey, everyone; rachaelm5 here.  I'm having a fit of irony, and I thought I would share it with all of you.

What do you think about a new folder for REAL winged things - artwork that features real-world birds, bats, insects, and other things like that?  

Feedback is appreciated!

Howdy-doo to you as well.  :D
Hi, my account, :iconnightfang13: crashed in a way that it still exists, but I can't do anything like submit or comment, so I have a new account now. Just a heads up. So like, if you have a member's list or something like that you can up date it if you want to.

Just wondering, do things like humans with wings work as "fantasy"?  Sorta like the "Maximum Ride" books by James Patterson?
rachaelm5 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, they meet the criteria for this group.  Winged humans are definitely fantasy critters.  If you take a look at the Angels, Fairies, and Winged Humanoids folder, you can see what kind of winged human-shaped creatures we permit.
