- all members are accepted automatically
- if your work was requested, please join/watch us!

- submissions must be of high quality and contain non-human animal(s), plant(s), or fungi/lichen. We do not accept fantasy animals, unless they are only altered in minor ways from the real animal (e.g. larger, different color, wings).
- we do not accept submissions that contain humans, unless it is just a hand or some other small part
- we will accept animals in fantasy scenarios (such as animals wearing clothes or doing human activities), but only if the animals depicted still look like actual animals
- we only accept high quality work
- we only accept works that have a proper photograph or scan taken of them
- we do not accept WIPs
- if you remove your work from this group without explanation, we may ban you from the group
- we understand that we have a lot of folders. If you really don't know what folder it goes in, just drop it in and we will move it to the proper folder. However, please be aware that we concentrate on non-photographic works, so if you are submitting photography, please submit to the "Photography" folder. Thanks!
- there is a daily limit of 4 submissions
- we reserve the right to decline any submissions. You will not receive an explanation why because I run 12 groups and do not have time to explain, but try not to take it personally. We may even accept some of your submissions and reject others.
- please feel free to submit other people's works from your favorites folders. We would appreciate it!

- we focus mainly on other forms of traditional art but will accept beautifully composed photographs
- please submit photography ONLY to the "Photography" folder

- input and suggestions are always welcome


As you've probably noticed by increased activity, I've returned to DA to run my groups. I closed a few to make life easier for me and make sure I don't get overwhelmed again. It sort of feels like coming home. There are so many wonderful artists on Deviant Art - it's astounding really and I so enjoy collecting and promoting talented individuals.
Hi all :) I've started a donation pool on my personal page. The goal is to get Living-Earth to super group status. If you feel a giving spirit, go on over to my page and donate some points. Every point is appreciated and no matter how long it takes, it will all go towards getting Living Earth super group status for a year. I wish I could afford to pay for it myself, but money is very tight at this time.
Living-Earth is 1 year old and over 500 members strong! Thanks so much to all of the wonderful contributors and watchers who make this group awesome :dance: :dance:
(this is my favorite group - don't tell my other groups shhh) :)
Thanks to all for helping to grow this group. It seems like it's been around for longer, but here we are at the 6 month mark! Congratulations to our group! :)
We've been up for almost 6 months now and I just thought I should check in with you all to see how you think we're doing. Hoping that this is a different kind of group to most of the ones here on DA and that you enjoy our quality control on the art pieces we accept and request. Let us know what you think! Suggestions, as always, are welcome. :)

I understand that you're a very busy person, both on dA and in real life, so only reply if you have time...

Do you have any suggestions for improving the quality of my artwork to meet the standards that this group expects? I know that "high quality" art is very much an indefinable, "you know it when you see it," sort of attribute... but do you have any specific pointers for artists like myself? Beyond realism, detail, a good scan, and not submitting a work-in-progress, what type of criteria do you look for in a work?

I adore your gallery, and I would like to improve my art. This is not a complaint or an attack (nor is it a request for my piece to be reconsidered). I do understand that it is not your job to answer questions like mine, but I will appreciate any time you can take to give me a word or two of expert advice!

Thank you!
