Contest - Winners!Thanks to everyone who voted! We got a great turn out with a lot of amazing entries, and it was good to see so much diversity in the way the votes were cast. Now, without further ado, here are the winners!
First Place: :iconflaerty: with http://flaerty.deviantart.com/art/Max-687809705
A fun loop with a lot of personality, and some lovely fur movement to top it off!
Second Place: :iconCrimsonDrakon: with http://crimsondrakon.deviantart.com/art/Groovy-Walk-687922507
A little dragon with plenty of attitude, and some well-used music enhances the overall effect
Third Place: :iconmarley225: with http://marley225.deviantart.com/art/run-cycle-687980476
Definitely one of my favorites! The creative character design, nice drag on the arm swing, and overlapping movement of the tail and head growths make this a joy to watch!
Thanks so much to everyone who participated! You all made this contest incredibly successful Prizes for those who placed will be doled out within a w

Lone DonutHey all! :iconMf99k: here.
I just finished a little project I did for fun and I was wondering if anyone here would like to take a few minutes to watch it :3
Upadate - New Folder Category!Due to a misunderstanding and the recognition of a community need, we have added a new folder category to the gallery- "Help Wanted" ads! This is now the acceptable place to post Help Wanted ads for personal projects, as well as animation-related editorials. This applies to admins, too- a brief scan of previous journal entries shows a historical trend of trolling for talent through the official group journal, which will (hopefully) not happen again. So please feel free to submit your ads to the appropriate folder as either journal entries or informational deviations. If you don't know how to submit a journal entry to a group, here's a handy tutorial:
Things that are OK to submit:
- "Help Wanted" ads for personal projects
- Links to Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdfunding campaigns
- Ads for multi-animator projects (MAPs)
- Any other written works or editorials perta
Contest - Voting starts soon!UPDATE June 23rd: And we've reached the deadline! (Technically two days ago). Voting will begin in a new journal in a few days. In the meantime, check below to make sure your entry is listed.
UPDATE June 15th: Just about six days left in the contest! If you don't see your entry listed here, it means you did not submit it to the correct folder. Just comment on this journal with a link to your entry before the deadline, and I'll still add it
UPDATE May 14th: With four entries and a week left, we have decided to extend the deadline to JUNE 21st 2017, 11:59PM EST. Again, at this busy time of year, it seems necessary to give a little more time. This deadline is final! No extensions will be given after this, and anything submitted even a minute late will not be included. Hope this is fine with everyone- current entrants are welcome to make edits as they see fit
UPDATE May 1st: A little under a month left until the soft deadline! We've already received
Possible New Contest - UPDATEUpdate: Thanks for all of the great feedback! It looks like our next contest is going to be option 3, the Action Challenge. Option 2 also got a lot of interest (and it happens to be my favorite ) so we will likely use that for a future contest. That'll give me time to think it through more, and to start collecting character sheets/layouts.
So, what kind of action would you guys prefer? I'd like it to be something general enough to be inclusive to most character types (bipedal, quadrupedal, etc.), so we may just start with something simple like a jump, yawn, walk or run cycle. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
Also, as a side note, I was thinking of combining Options 1 and 4 into a revolving group activity. Once every two months or so the "prompt" will change, and (if there is enough participation) the prompt-related entries will be voted on, and the highest rated will be featured on the group's front page. Let me know if this is something you'd be interested in!
Help WantedAs you all may have noticed, it takes way too long for your submissions to get approved. This is because I'm not very active anymore, and the DA app doesn't allow me to approve group submissions from my phone. (I really wish it would, because then I could approve stuff while I'm at work) The upshot of this is, we need some more help around here. Anyone who wants to become a contributor, and help approve submissions to the group, shoot me a message. If you're really ambitious and want to run contests and such, even better!
Submission GlitchHey everyone, sorry to announce but you should know that because of the changes to DA recently, all the groups on the site are bugging out and showing all your submissions under the wrong folders, but when declined, it is sometimes changed and reveals you submitted to the correct folder, but the submission queue, for some reason, says differently. Either way, this is a site-wide bug so we'll just have to wait until the help desk can straighten it out and get it back to working correctly. Until then, I don't know if it will be possible to submit anything, depending on what :iconjohnnydwicked: wants to do. Anyway, we'll keep you posted, as things update.
