I noticed in the comments for the previous one that the images weren't 'clear enough', I honestly didn't know if they could get any clearer than that, but I did understand I guess. I'm a contributer to the group so feel free to ask questions if this still confuses you.
Obviously not allowed as it's an Anthro group.
These are also not accepted in the group mainly because they are basically still Humans, they just have the added animal ears, tail, etc.
The main thing that is looked at when accepting Anthropomorphic characters in the group is the snout.
- Anthro character with very short or no snout: Accepted
- Anthro character with medium size or large snout: Not accepted
This group simply likes to define Short snouted anthro's as 'Modern' (hence the group name) and longer snouted Anthro's as 'Classic'. It's that simple.
No one here is 'disqualifying' your characters from being Anthro because it gets declined. Please try and be understanding with this groups rules. There are plenty, if not BARE groups which accept Anthro characters of any type but this group is only looking for short snouted ones. This group is also for people who's characters would be described as being 'too human'.
This is just a basic reference for telling the difference between the types.
You can find the full rules here: REDUX Rules and Guidelines
Like I said, feel free to ask questions if you're confused.
Modern-Anthro is kind of a niche group, but there's a ton of anthro groups out there for normal anthro artists, but not that many for people whose characters break the mold. Just, you know, something to keep in mind.
And like, if anyone is looking for the classic anthro groups, I could suggest quite few good ones.
It's not that difficult to understand.
There are loads of groups that accept long snouted Anthro characters just not this one :I
Unfortunately, I don't really want to expend the effort to remember what this group will and won't allow as far as something as specific as this goes. I will just submit to groups that I know will be nondiscriminatory of my muzzle lengths.
Good luck on getting people to follow the rules though! That's kind of a tough one.
Nice chart/drawing, btw
The best example I've always used for my characters with my watchers is Thundercats. Thundercat looking characters don't seem to have a place in this chart. They're slightly above "human" but below kemonomini, both of which are two levels below what this chart finds acceptable.
At any rate, thank you for posting this! It helps set a standard for the group, which in turn allows the content to be more focused, keeping it on topic.
Funny thing is, though, all I'd have to do for my characters to fall into "Basic" is add back in the black animal nose. Its ironic that how while such a chart seems strict, little things in how you draw the characters can have them fall into different categories entirely. Interesting.
I'm just glad that people are understanding
To me, I see the chart as an ultimatum to either draw to conform to the new standard (which I will not do) or leave (which I'm not sure is necessary either). On the other hand, I don't know if I'm a unique case or not, because you've accepted my art here a few times already, and to my knowledge haven't taken it down. Even under the old chart model, my art was accepted, so I'm not sure how to proceed with this new development.
And yes, its important that people understand. I've seen folks get upset over stuff like this, but that's mostly because they take it as a judgment of their art or style, when its not.
However certain art in your gallery looks perfectly acceptable like [link] and [link]
These works are not likely to be accepted however [link] (I couldnt really find any example of Kemonos in your gallery as they mostly look Human to me)
And actually, I'm glad you referenced those two specifically, because they're the only examples I have to give of my current style with this genre, and if you feel they somehow fall into this new chart (I have to admit, I don't see how they do), then it takes the future guess work out of it for me, since I intend to continue drawing them that way.
As for the elf, that doesn't even count, and I wouldn't consider that a furry or anthro anyways, its a completely different genre. I don't get why people want to question whether elves and certain mythical creatures like them are furries....it seems like a world of difference to me.
hehe nice chart. pretty cool and instructive.
