*The Dream Bestiary must hold true to its namesake: Creatures and characters you've dreamed about only.
-No "Dream Guardians" or "Nightmare Guardians" or "Dream Eaters" unless they came from an actual dream
- No mythical dream creatures like Baku
-No creatures your fictional characters dreamed about
However if anyone finds these, point them out and I'll gladly add them to the group's Favorites.
*Please put your art in the appropriate folder. Incorrectly-placed art will be put into the proper folder at the admin's discretion.
*All skill levels are welcome, as long as it looks like you put in your best effort.
*All forms of media welcome.
*Explicit content is allowed as long as it conforms to DeviantArt policy and remain exclusively in the NSFW folder. For obvious reasons, NSFW work will not be featured.
What qualifies as explicit content?
-Hardcore violence: If it depicts the act of disemboweling, beheading, flaying, bisecting - that sort of thing.
A zombie-ish creature with its innards on the outside doesn't necessarily count, but if a picture of that same zombie-ish creature sucking someone's brains out through their nose is submitted, then well. Yeah.
-Explicit nudity: If the piece is specifically composed to draw attention to the breasts or genitalia. Pieces that happen to include breasts/genitalia don't necessarily count.
-Sexual content: If characters/ creatures are depicted in sexual acts or if the piece is specifically composed to arouse the viewer. No exceptions.
-In Short: It all depends on context.
-When in doubt, it might be wise to touch up on DeviantArt rules before submitting: help.deviantart.com/220/
- Due to the nature of some of the more nightmarish creatures featured here, blood and body horror will be a common theme. If you are particularly sensitive to blood and/or body horror, you have been warned..
General Guidelines and Things to Remember:
*If there are any questions about anything whatsoever, feel free to note the admin. I might not get to you right away due to offline obligations, but I WILL get to you. I'm still new to making groups, so any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
*Be respectful. Be nice. No fights. No harassment. No chain mail. No trolling. No dickery - period. If you do it and I see it, you will be booted clear to the other side of the Internet.
*If you don't see your creature at the forefront of its respective folder, don't fret! All folders except for Featured are arranged alphabetically. I like to keep things tidy.
