The Nest...

This is a group shows the love for birds and shares your avian original characters.

Here's a few rules to go by:

:bulletblue: Only birds please, no gryphons, winged wolves, or other animals whether real or fantasy, that are not birds. Fantasy species are allowed, so long as they are pure birds and not hybrids. If a bird is appearing with another kind of animal, then it’s perfectly acceptable.

:bulletblue: Only OCs, they can be yours or those of someone else on DA (for fan art, commissions, etc). Please, no fan art for movies, books, games, and other things outside DA. The purpose of this group is to collect actual characters, so pictures of generic, unnamed birds are not allowed. The only exception to this will be in the ‘Tutorials’ section, where any bird-related tutorials are allowed.

:bulletblue: No photos, photomanipulations, colored linearts or bases, and absolutely NO stolen artwork. Anyone caught stealing or heavily referencing someone else’s work will be immediately banned from the group.

:bulletblue: Be respectful and polite to your fellow members. We do not allow work that is aimed at making other people feel bad in any way, this a group for everyone to enjoy.

:bulletblue: Maximum submissions per week: 5 deviations

Gallery Guide

:bulletorange: Character Sheets-Reference sheets for OCs.

:bulletorange: Wild Species-Bird species that occur in nature, like blue jays or barn owls.

:bulletorange: Fantasy Species or Colors-Any fantasy species like a phoenix or birds that have unnatural colors (AKA a bald eagle with neon orange feathers).

:bulletorange: Anthro-Any anthro characters.

:bulletorange: Comics and Memes-The pages and covers of avian comics, if a bird is appearing on only one or two pages, just submit the pages in which the bird makes an appearance. You can also put memes in this folder.

:bulletorange: Sketches-Uncolored pencil drawings

:bulletorange: Stamps and Icons-Stamps and icons focusing on original avian characters on DA.

:bulletorange: Tutorials-For all bird related tutorials, this folder is the only one where fan made or unnamed bird characters are allowed.

Inspiring Avian Art, from traditional to digital...
Sorry if your requests had expired.
Other priorities are straining on us admin, so returning to active updating has been very difficult.

On my part, I wish I had more time for Featuring all of you artists, I really do. But because this group isn't my only priority anymore, I hadn't the chance to set up a proper interview like how it used to be two years ago.

Look forward to the future, and maybe you could take part and contribute to the group! Help ease the stress and simply send a note, to VexVamp the founder or even me (if you like me to recommend you). I believe this group will need all the help it can get, and since I'm leaving, admin positions are welcoming.

Again, please resubmit any work that you wanted to contribute to the folders, and it will be tended to.  

Side note, I'm burdened with the terrible guilt for not updating this group and so I'm leaving my position.  I'll still be around to chat but I can't be toppled with more worries. Forgive me for leaving. It was fun being in here, and I will miss you bird lovers! Take care!

Final flight,
