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.

My fellow artists,

I would like to remind everyone that this group requires that wings be visible in the artwork that you submit to this group.

Effective immediately, wings need to be MOSTLY VISIBLE for the art to be accepted.

Here is an illustration of what I mean by "mostly visible"; I apologize for the thumbnail image being minuscule.  Please click on it to see what is acceptable and what is not acceptable.

Dragon Wing Example by rachaelm5

:bulletred:  If no wings are visible, the picture will be declined.
:bulletred:  If only the shoulder joint of the wing is visible, the picture will be declined.
:bulletred:  If only tiny bits of wing are visible beyond the shoulder joint, the picture will be declined.
:bulletred:  If the wings are folded behind a creature's back and only visible at the outer edge, the picture will be declined.

There will be some "borderline" items that I accept or decline on a case-by-case basis.  When I decline a piece of art, I will always tell you why I did so.  You are also always free to ask questions about it if my decision did not make sense to you, or if you just have questions about it generally.

:bulletgreen:  Special allowances are made for comics, as wings don't need to be visible in all panels or on all pages submitted.  We allow this so that the continuity of the comic series is not interrupted.

I'll adjust this list as we go along, but from now on I want to see LOTS OF WINGS in the Winged Fantasy Club.  Wings are what this group is about, right?!

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.

If you have work that you have questions about, please feel free to post a link here or in a note, and we can take a look at it.

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.

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.
