Group Info

Welcome to True Amazons! The group for art depicting women as strong, tough, or courageous... but tastefully.

Basically, the point of the group is this: Empower Women. There are tons of other groups on DeviantArt that are full of naked, huge-breasted bimbos for male audiences. The other half of the population wants a break!

You don't have to be a woman to join this group, but you do have to respect the way women feel when they view your art. Girls, this is YOUR turf. Guys, you are welcome to stay, as long as you behave yourselves. :)


THE RULES - Please read before submitting art:

• All art must be ON-TOPIC, meaning that their main focus is a woman, and this woman must be powerful or inspiring (see below for more details). Just because there is a woman in the picture does not automatically mean it's on-topic.

• All characters must have REALISTIC body proportions and anatomies, and realistic body poses. Cartoons are allowed, but "Escher girls" and erotic monstrosities are not.

• Keep it CLEAN. We don't want people coming here just to ogle at boobies. Please, no porn, lewd pin-up, fetishized sexual body parts, etc. Any nudity must have a non-erotic justification. Guys, trust us: if you designed your female character just to make men horny, women can tell.

• ABSOLUTELY NO art or comments that are degrading to women, anything that portrays women as weak or helpless, violence against women, women as prisoners or slaves, women in bondage, women being abused, impending rape scenes, "peril" art, Gorean art, or art that portrays women as victims.

• All submissions must show reasonable artistic and presentation QUALITY. No unfinished or poorly-presented art, faint sketches, quick doodles, blurry photos, drawings on lined paper, rough pencil sketches, or very novice artwork. Colored art is preferred; uncolored art should be well-shaded or otherwise obviously complete.

• Watch out for REDUNDANCY. Please only submit one version of each piece, ideally the most complete version. Also please try to avoid submitting sequence series.

• If something is in your gallery, then it has to be your work, not stolen or uploaded with out the owner's permission. Photomanipulations must credit source photos in the caption and be modified enough from the original to be considered art.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

UPDATE: What *IS* On-Topic?
Art submissions MUST fall into one of more of the following categories. If it does not, then it is not on-topic and we will not accept it!

* Fan art or cosplay of known strong female characters from popular culture, mythology, or history

* Warrior women, women who are holding weapons, wearing armor, or kicking butt

* Women who demonstrate remarkable physical strength, athleticism, or a muscular body (without being an obvious sexual fetish).

* Women who possess, preferably demonstrate, formidable magical powers; i.e. witches and sorceresses

* Women as leaders, women possessing authority

* Deviant ID's of female group members; or if you are a guy, photos of women who you know in real-life who you look up to (submitted with their permission, of course!)

* Women displaying other qualities of strength or toughness not listed here; i.e. mastering the elements, flying a jet, saving someone's life, befriending dangerous animals, making an important political statement, etc.

Dear Friends,

It is time that we reach out and recruit another member of our already excellent team of dedicated group Admins.  We need someone who shares our vision who is willing to help vote on member submissions.  We are looking for a volunteer with the following qualifications:

* Is passionate about keeping True-Amazons a safe space for women
* Has a thorough understanding of what is and is not appropriate for the group
* Understands and respects the reasons and intent behind all of our Group Rules
* Uses DeviantArt regularly and can commit to voting multiple times a week
* Is willing to make a serious, long-term commitment to this group
* Is happy to cooperate with and openly communicate with the other Admins
* Has already been a member and fan of this group for some time
* PREFERABLY has had previous experience managing a DeviantArt group

Note that the administration of True-Amazons is and has always been cooperative and bureaucratic.  We are NOT looking for someone to take a position of command or change the direction of the group.  What we need is an extra set of hands attached to a mind with a loving commitment to our group's established purpose.

Every existing member of the True-Amazons Admin team is responsible, dedicated, trustworthy, and shares a like-minded vision for the group.  Any new team member must be similar, and for this reason, all interested persons will be vetted before a decision is made.  If you are chosen, you will begin with the title of Contributor.  If your dedication withstands the test of time, there is a good chance of eventually being promoted to Co-Founder.

If you are interested, please leave a comment on this blog or send the group a message.

Thank you all for helping to make True-Amazons the extraordinary group that it is!

Sincerely,
The True-Amazons team

I'm not sure if I asked this before via private note, so I figured I'd ask in public: do you accept complete, original comics, to be uploaded one page at the time? Mine are solely focused on powerful women, so I thought they would fit perfectly well with the group :)

We generally do not accept serial art, as we'd prefer for viewers to visit the artist's gallery to read a whole series.  However, we do accept select pages from comic series that best exemplify the heroine's strength, so long as the page meets our Group Rules.  :)
