:note: About our group.
To inspire and be inspired! To share your art!
We do not aim to insult the classic anthro art and artists. One who truly loves anthro will enjoy all kinds of art. :+favlove:
However, considering that there are a lot of artists who prefer drawing anthro in a more modern way we ,the founders, decided to make a group for them. We would also like to promote modern anthro art because, sadly, there are people who consider modern anthro (furry) inferior and we are here to change that.

:emailsend: Joining.
Just click the "Join Group" button on the top of the page.
You must, of course, enjoy and love anthro art. It is not necessary for you to submit artworks regularly. You can simply join to enjoy the art.
All join requests are automatically approved.

Mind if I asked why my artwork keeps getting declined when I try to contribute something to a gallery?

I sort've guessed it was because the two I pitched was because of the medieval-like subject material, but then I saw some World of Warcraft-esque artwork in other galleries.

My art no longer good here..? lol
ElkeCanus Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I guess it's because your anthros have not enough human features of the face, that all. Sorry!
TujoThePanda Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Weird. Can't help but say I doubt that's the case, but alright. 
ElkeCanus Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know that IS, because it was I who declined your artwork.

Hello !
I just wanted to say I think the name of the group is a bit confusing... Well.. I just don't see what's so "modern" about short-snouted anthros... Shrug 
They're just a different type that's all... there's nothing new or modern to it... It's like saying that the other types are old and not original anymore...
(well it's just my opinion.)

So well.. I joined because I thought it looked like a cool anthro group for everyone to share their art... I admit I didn't read the rules very well... ^^" But since my anthros have long snouts the fact that I joined the group is kind of useless, so sorry for wasting your time and disturbing any of you... :/

There's an explanation of this group and the style on the guidelines. The link is on the front page.

Copy&Paste from the guidelines:

Our Definition of "Anthro."
Please, do not argue with us stating "Our group is incorrect" or that we quote, "misunderstand the definition/concept of Anthro." "Modern Anthro" is not an official definition, but rather one we created ourselves for a more specific and diluted Anthro style. If you simply dislike the idea, please refrain from arguing with us, and instead just walk away. I assure you, every one of us admins is fully aware of the definition of "anthropomorphic."

We never, ever implied anything negative about the classic anthro style (as stated in the front page). We made a group for furries because they were overshadowed by the classic anthros in every anthro group. Mind you, back then all groups were general anthro groups and I looked that furry artists needed a chance for more spotlight and thus we made this group that only accepts a specific style.

Of course nowadays there are plenty of groups like that around. The reason they were overshadowed might have been because a lot of people seemed like they didn't appreciate furries, possibly for using a simpler style or because a lot of them have an anime/manga style. Anime/manga is also not considered "true art" by many, a quick google search will show you that.

We chose a particular name because furries were/are associated with lots of inappropriate stuff and calling it just "Anthro" would have been even more confusing. The original trio that created this group decided to go along with name "modern" because the other style is called "classic". May not be the best/most accurate choice or name but that's what we decided back then and rolled with it.

Don't worry, I understand perfectly... !
It's just the name that confused me, because I think the word "modern" doesn't fit really well. But hey ! that's only my opinion, it doesn't mean I'm right !
I see what you mean with the furry problem. And I wasn't putting the group down, because it's a nice idea !
I just said what I thought, because the name confused me, nothing negative, really... I wasn't trying to be mean or anything... ^^' 
So even if I think the name isn't the best choice, I still think this group is nice idea, and I'm fine with that. :)

I believe the name "Modern" used rather to delimit two kinds of styles, that's all.

And you don't disturb anyone. Feel free to submit  your artworks if you'll have some acceptable pieces.
Have a nice day!
Scourgette Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2014
I know, but I personally would of used something more... "descriptive"... :)
And have a nice day too ! =D
