Welcome fellow OC creators!

We are terribly sorry. The-OC-Arcadia is no longer accepting new members. We are getting ready to close our doors.

Please check out OCElysium instead! This group will be replacing The-OC-Arcadia!

This is a group dedicated to non-fandom OCs!

-All join requests are automatically accepted, so feel free to join us anytime!

Please read the rules of the group!

-This group is geared towards non-fandom OCs, so characters that are part of fandoms (e.g. Sonic, My Little Pony, etc.) aren't allowed in the group. Sorry!
-We do NOT accept bashing/flaming/harassment in the group.
-If you do not like someone's OC, then leave them be!
-Please submit to the correct folder!
-Mature art is accepted. Just make sure it follows DA's rules, has a safety warning on it, and is submitted to the correct folder.

-If you want someone to review your OC, then submit them to the "looking for reviews" folder! all we ask is that you have your OC's bio written out!
-If you end up submitting to the wrong folder, then we'll likely decline your submission and suggest some folders your work could go in. After this, feel free to try again by submitting to the correct folder.
-If your submission does get accepted and ends up in the wrong folder, then we will move it to the correct one!
-If you break any of the submission guidelines ((exception being submitting to the wrong folder)), then we will remove your work from the group.
-If you continuously break the rules of the group ((especially bashing other members)), then we will kick you out of the group for some time. The amount of time depends on how bad things get. This can go from a suspension to a permanent ban.

And now I make my final post here in this group.
I was gonna do it at 9 like I said I was but I forgot whoops.

this group had a good run but now I think it is time for me to move on. I was young & made mistakes when I made this group. But despite that I still enjoyed it.

Thank you to everyone that joined this group.
We hope to see you over at :iconocelysium: and if not, we hope you have a wonderful day & keep up with making your lovely OCs!

I will now be closing the group.

Dear aspiring, young or bored artists interested in original characters;
We'll be printing an art book this spring, non-profit and not reproduced - only to feature aspiring artists! The book will be brought to conventions this summer and fall so as many people as possible can look at your work. To be in the book, join my contest - ALL entries will get a place in the final book with a link to your page or an email to contact you. (Unless you'd rather not be featured, that is an option too.) All about the rules here: 
The Artist Feature Contest (Updated prizes)Hey guys!
To help me expand and explore this universe a little, I want to throw a contest. The goal is to gather up some artworks that I can feature when I go to conventions this summer and of course when I get back to Canada after the break. - I'm planning to put together a book of my process work and pictures relating to this project, and in the back I want to feature you guys!
I know that in a way, this is asking you to work for free, but I really could use your help to gather enough material, and I want to pay you back by adding more prizes the more people join in + featuring you guys as much as I can. If you have more suggestions for prizes, let me know!
1. Your piece has to contain at least one of these characters: Ty, Wynne or Volvar. 
2. Any media is allowed, drawings, digital, paper-cut-outs, knock yourself out!
3. The scene and situation can be anything you want, but it has to relate to the word "Light". (Sunshine? Weight? Light in

Heads up, I spotted a spelling error in the folder "Demi human's, aliens, supernatural, kemonomi".

It should be demi-humans, demihumans or demi humans (all i'm saying is apostrophes don't belong in plural words), and kemonomi is actually spelled kemonomimi. (lol i thought it was spelled kenomimi but then i googled it and it turned out we're both wrong)

I might end up posting some of my 100% OCs here someday. When I draw them again. Um. For now most of my OCs are like 90% original, haha. Considering their universe and story..

Oh, I didn't realize this until now!

Thank you for pointing that out!
Magdaneela Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
No problem! I felt like it needed to. 
Zainniko Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist

If you ever draw them babs, we'll be glad to have them in the group ^^
