|PLEASE READ BEFORE JOINING!|
If you like cool CATGIRL characters from Japanese Anime, Manga, and Video Games then this Group is for you!
Everyone is welcome to Join! Join requests will be checked to verify that you actually have artwork in your gallery or favorites to become a member. If you want to see the submitted artwork in your inbox, all you need to do is WATCH the group. If you want to be an admin, say so in your request. Membership is voted on and may or may not result in approval. No art in your gallery or favorites almost always results in a rejection. If you want to be an admin, say so in your request.
This group is ONLY for Catgirl art! No other kind of art will be accepted! There's a difference between a girl that's a cat vs. a Catgirl. The best definitions are at Wikipedia and TV Tropes.
They may sound a bit strict but they are intended for the maximum possible enjoyment of anyone who joins the Group, and also will help to build a community of people who love cat-eared lasses of Japanese Anime form.
Submissions from members are limited to unlimited number per week, unless there's a maximum imposed by deviantART and are subject to a voting process.
Submit your artwork to the appropriate folder.
FINISHED ARTWORK ONLY PLEASE! You may only submit works that have been drawn, inked, colored, either with digital or traditional mediums and are completed. Grayscale and Ink Wash are acceptable.
Preferred art will be in Japanese Animation or Manga style. Digital renditions of characters are allowed, as well as catgirls rendered in your own style as long as it embodies the aspects of a japanese style anime catgirl.
FAN ART submissions are OK. Fan art of actual anime catgirl characters is preferred. Using a normal "human" character and sticking cat ears may be allowed, but please don't over use it.
Sorry, NO Fox girls, bunny girls, dog girls, horse girls, etc. We want CATGIRLS ONLY! Also no anthro or furry art. If your character leans more towards a humanoid furry, it may be allowed. TV Tropes has the best definition of what ISN'T a Catgirl.
Comic book pages, memes, line art, sketches, doodles or unclear photographs of your drawings, are NOT ALLOWED. Character sheets are permitted.
DRAWINGS THAT HAVE MULTIPLE CHARACTERS-- The main character of the drawing MUST be a catgirl! Pretty simple!
NO excessive violence, blood, gore or horror allowed.
COSPLAY submissions are OK. However, you must be prominently cosplaying a catgirl character. Submit a good quality shot of your finished costume, no progress pictures please.
Copyright and Mature Content issues are resolved by deviantART. Obviously, you can submit anything, so if the artwork passes the voting process, but is removed from DA, your piece simply vanishes from our Galleries. Should you be banned from DA, any reference to your "handle" becomes struck through, and all links to your home page become broken. YOU are responsible for what you see, what you make, and what you can do on deviantART. We do have a Hentai folder that has strong adult content. Refer to the folder description to see what qualifies as acceptable Hentai.

Don't be discouraged if your work is rejected. Work can be rejected for a number of reasons. Make sure you followed the rules and submit your very best work!
