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.

(Original journal: epicwolfofdarkness.deviantart.…)

This was originally posted on International Women's Day, and although that's passed now, I still thought this list would be worth sharing. :D

So here's the list:

5. Nilin Cartier-Wells, Remember Me


I haven't played through the whole game yet, but it's over half-way completed, so I've played enough of it to know that this gal isn't one to be messed with. :D Even with no memory of her past, she never gives up the fight. :)

4. Sergeant Calhoun, Wreck-it Ralph

Sergeant Calhoun by MelodicMadness

WHAT CAN I SAY. Not only is this woman a TOTAL BADASS, but she also got me into video games with strong female protagonists, such as Metroid and Mass Effect. The fact that I'm playing those series now is her legacy. :D Also, the fact that she has a more caring side to her personality too is just so sweet. :aww:

3. Commander Shepard, Mass Effect

Commander Shepard by MagicnaAnavi

Like with Nilin, I haven't played through the whole Mass Effect series yet. I'm still only on the first one. But from what I've seen so far of this lady, she's smart, tough and definitely not-to-be-messed-with. :D She's better than her male counterpart, in my opinion. :)

2. Lucina Lowell, Fire Emblem/Super Smash Bros.

Princess Lucina by bellhenge

Okay. Technically, putting her on this list is cheating as I haven't played Fire Emblem Awakening yet. But I HAVE played Super Smash Bros. 4, and she's in that, so yeah. :) She may be a Marth clone in moveset terms, but she's definitely her own character. And her winning lines and taunts are just so sassy. :XD:

1. Samus Aran, Metroid/Super Smash Bros.

Samus Aran: Battlescars by transfuse

Let's face it. Anyone who's been watching me since October 2013 probably saw this one coming. :XD: But seriously though. THIS WOMAN IS JUST OMG :faint: She's almost TOO awesome. And she started me off on loads of other Nintendo series, just from being in Super Smash Bros. So it's all thanks to her that, apart from being in love with the Metroid series, I have an obssession with Zelda, Kid Icarus, Fire Emblem and Nintendo in general as well. And on top of all that? She disguises herself in an armoured suit, so some people don't even know she's female until they play one of her games. AND she was one of the first strong female protagonists in gaming history. She's all that was mentioned above, and more. :D
Samus Aran, I salute you. :salute: :heart:


:iconprosper-the-xviii:'s Rana Silva, Prosper, Evelyn Cameron and Marilyn Manson II
:iconcelticwarriormoon:'s Tamara Lynch
:iconevanescence412:'s Chalice Venerando

And probably others I forgot to mention. :XD:

So there you go. Go and find out more about these awesome ladies if you get the chance. They're all strong and inspiring in their own ways. :)

P.S. I found this awesome Metroid fan animation recently that captures Samus' no-nonsense personality perfectly. Here it is (you don't need to be a Metroid fan to watch it, there's no spoilers): Enjoy. :)

I was wondering if you had pictures of Samus Aran, then I saw the recent journal.

How about pictures of Alice Liddell, from American Mcgee's Alice (and Madness Returns)?

Or what about Tex from Red vs Blue?
SkyJaguar Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2015
We accept all fan art as long as it meets our requirements as spelled out in the Group Info.  :)
Aqua311 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2015
So, you don't know if you have any pictures of Alice or Tex?
SkyJaguar Featured By Owner Edited Apr 2, 2015
No I don't know.  Our galleries have literally thousands of pieces submitted by hundreds of members!  But it does look like MiladyDuchess found some pics of Agent Tex that she requested to put into the group, upon your suggestion.  You are welcome to submit art, too!  :)

I'm tempted to say that we do have pictures of Alice Liddell though I don't think very many and specific incidences aren't springing to mind. If we do, I think they are back a ways. Tex, I'm less sure about. 

However, all members are free to submit pictures to us of things they'd like to see more of or make suggestions.

Let us know if you have anymore questions.
