About Werewolf-Horror

Welcome to "Werewolf Horror" - a group for those of us who enjoy traditional horror werewolves: ferocious, bloodthirsty and terrifying.

RULES!

1. Only submit your original artwork. No found images on the internet or screenshots from movies, television shows, or video games. Art thieves will be banned & reported.

2. No happy, serene furry/anthro/therian drawings, romance-based series fan art, anime cat-girl style wolves, or regular wolves. This is a horror group. We do occasionally accept humorous works.

3. Artwork should be of high quality. No blurry photos/scans or scribbles on lined or graph paper. Written work should be proofread and properly formatted.

For further information about this rule and examples of what is and isn't acceptable, please see this post: werewolf-horror.deviantart.com…

We're ripping the Drawing, Painting and Illustration folder into shreds!



Because it was getting a bit bloated, it's now been split into Color and Monochrome - usually black & white, but generally any uncolored line art or single color picture.

The Color Illustration and Monochrome Illustration folders should be used if your art doesn't fit any other category. Work with blood and guts should go into Glorious Gore, works based on licensed properties goes into Fan Art, etc., etc. Don't submit to the Featured folder, this is reserved for the mod's favorites.

Also, because we've been getting a lot of this lately: we're a HORROR group. We do occasionally accept humorous submissions, especially if it's dark humor, but we're not the group for pictures of chibis, werewolves hugging. furries/anthros or regular wolves. We also don't accept general horror, there must be something that's recognizable as a werewolf. We accept the occasional werehyena or whatevers, but no vampires, zombies, anime monsters and so on.

Also also: If your work isn't accepted, don't take it personally or give up entirely. We do exercise quality control, but everyone has room for improvement. We also generally don't accept more than two pictures of the same work (for example, multiple pictures of a costume or sculpture), because interested viewers can always check the artist's own gallery to see more.

Each submission requires three votes to be accepted, and there are six mods who vary in taste, but we all generally agree on quality and whether or not to make exceptions. Artists singling out and harassing mods, arguing decisions or repeatedly spamming the same picture will be banned from the group. Fortunately this has only happened once that I remember, but I wanted to say it anyways. With six of us, we're also pretty sharp at catching art theft (most thieves aren't particularly skilled, but still).

As promised, here's my review of "Wer": (I'll try not to toss in any spoilers)
The Good:  This is my favorite film depiction of a werewolf.  It's based on a mix of psychological and physiological illness and only uses the mythology as an exaggerated and faulty eye witness account to a heart wrenching disease.  There's no wolf like features in the effects here for those of you who are die-hard "it has to resemble a wolf" types.  The werewolf's character is a believable recluse who I still felt pity for even by the end of the film, despite him only really having about 3 lines of dialogue. 
I thought the idea of portraying the film's story line through a law enforcement/ justice system point of view was a fresh take and they did a good job with not allowing the film to feel like another episode of CSI. 

The Bad:  The three characters who are defending Talon (the werewolf)'s case are bumbling college students with jock strap egos put in lawyer garb.  They don't fit their professions at all and exist, I feel, as an attention grabber since they are all 3 fashionably attractive and create unnecessary dramatic tension in the film.
Though the film had a lot of promise with it's story line (s), I feel that they tried to do too much and the story became jumbled and confused between a tragically comedic romantic 3 way, a serious look at how the judicial system handles criminals with medical disabilities, conspiracy and cover ups in the police department, and a archetypical story as to the identity of man.  I feel that if the film producers/writers/directors had picked one of those themes and stuck with it, the film would have been much more cohesive and would have probably been labeled my favorite werewolf film; but: too many ideas, not enough focus; obnoxiously out of place character interactions caused it to go on to a 'I might watch it again but probably wont' list.

As much as I loved my two trips to Portland this year, I blew my travel budget.  Not really a con type anyway.

I would go, as it's only a five hour drive for me but I just don't have enough budgeted in for hotel and food. :( I'm hoping next year.

Hello all!
I'm currently trying to set up a fan art competition for this book about werewolves goo.gl/nQJVlw .
Obviously with you all sharing a real passion with werewolves and being talented artists, you are the perfect contestants I'm looking for. However, as I have never set up a fan art competition before I am in need of your help! Any responses as to what the prize of winning the competition should be, or how I could get more people to compete will be much appreciated. 
Hopefully hear from some of you soon!

Signed copies of the books would be good, along with prints from the artist.

I have read Dogstar and really enjoyed it, so note me or the group when the competition starts and I'll do a feature here on the group's journal.

Awesome! Thanks for the help.
Glad you enjoyed it. Would be a massive help if you gave a review on Amazon as well to help us get the word out there of how good the book is!
Do you have any advice as to how to publicise the fan art competition?

Setting up a tumblr account for it would be a good way.
Also, you could make your own group for the series here on DA.
