Browse through this folder and gallery to see some of the best works submitted by members and other various deviants. These works not only stand out to me in their quality, creativity, or overall beauty, but represent what this group is all about.

Everything You Need to Know About This Group


This group's focus is on the unconditional bonds that exist in real or imaginary form between people (or human-like forms) and the creatures of this Earth or beyond. Such bonds exist through kinship, connection, companionship, love, spirituality, magic, death and so on and it is this group's mission to portray all these bonds in their entirety and overall beauty. The part that distinguishes this group from most others is that it involves both a person and an animal, or both of them combined, not just one or the other.

If I invited your art to this group, that means I like your style, and I'm inviting you to join! :heart:


:bulletorange: All works with the exception of poetry and crafts must contain 1. a person (or humanlike form) and 2. an animal (or an earthly or fantastical creature).

:bulletorange: Most styles are welcome here as long as they hold true to the theme of this group. Greater emphasis will be placed on realism as opposed to manga or anime. However, all mediums are welcome: digital paintings or drawings, photomanipulations, photography, traditional art, poetry and artisan crafts.

:bulletorange: You must be a member to submit work.

:bulletorange: You can submit 6 deviations per week.

:bulletorange: Please do not submit multiple versions of the same work.

:bulletorange: Unless you're a contributor, works are no longer automatically approved: too many people were abusing this feature with irrelevant artwork which is not fair to those who watch this group for the sole purpose of its specific theme.

:bulletblack: This group does not accept work that condones animal violence or cruelty.

:bulletorange: On a side note: some tend to tie "animal cruelty" in with taxidermy, animal jewellery or crafts. This group, however, takes on a north american indigenous approach: an animal who must be hunted for food is respected under all circumstances and none of its elements should be wasted. As long as it's not killed for sport or pleasure, it's elements in the form of craft are welcome here.

"The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued."
-Robert Frost-

Hi! I received a request to include an artwork in this group (thank you by the way!), but I'm not sure if it was accidental. There is no visible animal in my artwork to bound with the character, unless you're considering the bond between a boy and his lute. (:

I didn't accept the request yet, I don't want to pollute the group by accident. Let me know if it was an accident and I should refuse it. This is the requested artwork:…
