Important Information

Hello, welcome to Original-Life!

Here, at this group, we collect and feature Closed Species and Open Species!

Please be sure to look over the rules about joining this group, the group rules, and the submission rules before joining!

If you have a question, be sure to ask one of the admins for help. :3

Enjoy your stay! :la:


We are NOT a regular adopt/art group. We ONLY accept art for closed and open species

All other submissions will be denied

That means that ALL submissions should say somewhere in the description that the image includes an open/closed original species.

Quick Question - could I put lore in 'closed species refs' or is that not allowed in the group? 

Something like…

could I maybe get feedback on my species? I'm making it to create a Role Play group here on dA and just in general as a Closed Species.

.:P-3:. Myrrh by RavenCity

there's also a journal in the description stating the original concept of the species c: I'd just like feedback if anyone's up for it; and possibly help running the species group and RPgroup!

Sorry for no response. I think the species in general is all out adorable. role playing group can be quite hard, having to heard from someone who co-owns and helps out a role playing group. :)
