Anthro Conventions & Costuming
One of the many facets of the Anthro Community is it's Artisans and convention goers. While this is a huge part of the "furry" fandom, conventions and costuming have become a popular medium for artists and appreciators to meet and share similar interests in life outside of the internet.
Convention & Costuming Resources
#AnthroConvention is a brand new channel on dAmn for con-goers and the curious alike to share ideas, network, and talk about anything and everything convention related. This room offers an open art share, open critique and links to fabulous resources on the web. Most importantly, the Anthro Community now has an awesome tool to use for getting live tips and advice from fursuiters and fursuit makers on every aspect of costume design and construction like no other place.

Submissions: What we mean by "Quality"Over the last several months since we opened the gallery for submissions, there have been enough questions as to what we mean by "quality" of art within our Submission Guidelines to warrant a closer look at the subject. Just what does "quality"? look like? How is it measured? When submitting artists continue to ask why everything they submit gets declined then we haven't been specific enough. Our submission guidelines will be updated soon to be more specific. So in the meantime, to help clarify: Here is what we mean by "quality".
a high level of value or excellence, or how well or poorly something is. Quality is a measuring word. The %AnthroCommunity group seeks to feature Good Quality work or better. There are certain aspects of every artwork that affect the quality of the presentation. Some aspects describe low quality while others, high quality.
Please make sure you take a look at our Sumbission Guidelines first. There are a number of reasons why your art could've been declined but some of the main reasons are 1) your artwork was submitted into the improper gallery or 2) your artwork doesn't meet the quality standards which will result in a decline of your artwork to the group. If you have any questions, feel free to send the group a note!
