The Nest...

Hello, and welcome to Avian-OCs. This is a group where all the birds of DA can show off their OCs and find others with similar interests. So why not pick a comfy perch and come hang with our flock for awhile?

Here are a few rules to go by:

:bulletblue: Only bird characters please; no gryphons, winged wolves, or other animals that are not birds. If the animal appears alongside a bird, then it’s perfectly acceptable.

:bulletblue: Only OCs (original characters), they can be your OCs or an OC you drew for someone else online (commissions, trades, gifts, etc). The goal of this group is to collect avian characters so please DO NOT submit generic, unnamed birds.

:bulletblue: We do accept fan characters, but please DO NOT submit canon characters from movies, books, games, and other media.

:bulletblue: We accept a wide variety of art, including but not limited to digital art, traditional art, crafts, comics, and icons. The only things we do not accept are photos, colored linearts, screenshots from games or movies, and NSFW art.

:bulletblue: Please do not submit traditional art that was drawn on notebook paper, or paper that is overly wrinkled or torn. Also, make sure that the drawing is not overly blurry or hard to see.

:bulletblue: We DO NOT accept stolen art under any circumstances. If you're caught submitting stolen art, you will be permanently banned from the group.

:bulletblue: Be respectful and polite to all the birds in our flock. We do not accept hate art or affiliate with hate groups.

:star:All submissions to our group favorites are automatically accepted, with a limit of five per week. Unlike our gallery folders, we accept random birds and canon characters from books, movies, and other media into our group favorites. However, please refrain from submitting gryphons or other hybrid creatures.:star:

Gallery Guide

:bulletorange: Character Sheets: Reference sheets for your OCs.

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

:bulletorange: Fantasy Species or Colors: Mythical species, like the phoenix, or natural species that have unnatural colors (example: a bald eagle with bright orange feathers).

:bulletorange: Anthro: For your anthro birds.

: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: Written Works: For all your bird stories.

:bulletorange: Crafts: Plushies, sculptures, buttons, ect.

:bulletorange: Animations: This folder is for all the animations that don't fall into the stamps, icons, or pixel art category.

:bulletorange: Stamps, Icons, and Pixel Art: Stamps, icons, and pixel art which feature bird OCs.

:bulletorange: Sketches: Black and white pencil drawings.

:bulletorange: Tutorials: For all bird related tutorials. This is the only folder where unnamed bird characters are accepted.

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,
