Group Info

Welcome to True Amazons! The group for art depicting women as strong, tough, dominant, 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.

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

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

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

* Women who display dominance or authoritative power

* 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.

Hello, Amazons and Amazon fans!

February is Black History month in the United States.  So before it ends (and I'm sorry I didn't get to this sooner), I would like to ask all of you which great Black woman in history inspires you the most.

One of the first historical True Amazons who I learned about as a child, and therefore who was one of the first to inspire me, was Harriet Tubman.  She was born into slavery around 1822 and was passed around like an animal from master to master.  She finally escaped from slavery in 1849.  Over the years she returned to the south 13 times and helped about 70 other slaves escape to freedom.  She also possessed incredible physical strength and probably could have kicked anyone's butt.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harriet_…

Then again, I'm also quite amazed by Queen Amina of the Hausa.  She was born a princess in the 1500's, in the kingdom of Zazzau, which was founded by her mother!  Amina became a great warrior, and she conquered six other kingdoms, uniting them into the singular Hausa empire.  Today she remains an important culture hero in Nigeria.

So which great Black woman in history inspires you the most?  Tell us here!

And if you don't know, then do some research!
