Item-chan, item-tan, etc.

A group to personify an inanimate object, or food as a human OC :3

Meaning non-living things. A humanized animal, like a cat, will not be accepted. Plant-related OCs will be accepted though. (we have plenty of similar affiliates that are suited to various/different needs :D)

And original artwork only (Bases are fine, but Gaia tekteks and tinierme avatars will not be accepted)

Geographical based OCs would be allowed (think Hetalia), though I think we may have more related affiliates as well for that. :'D

We do not accept literature submissions, sorry.

If they're personifications that don't quite fit in this group, these groups are probably general enough to accept them

:bulletgreen: What is this group about?

-This group is for those who like ''item-chans''

:bulletgreen: What are item-chans?

-An item chan is a character created from a non-living object or item. Ex: Fruit themed characters. (However, plants and flower based OCs are alright.)

:bulletgreen: What are not item-chans?

-Characters themed of living things as animals, anthro characters in general or characters that are not themed off anything at all. (However we have plenty of affiliate groups you can join and submit your other art to theirs :))

:bulletgreen: Submissions:

-Follow the rules of DA (…

-No hentai (nudity/mature content is allowed as long as it doesn't break DeviantArt's TOS.)

-Submit to the right gallery folder

-Must be fully your own artwork (bases are fine, no doll makers.)

-Sketches and B&W linearts are ok to submit

Sorry for not responding to the request for my deviation to be featured; I was away from a computer for a few weeks and didn't see it. Thank you for the request though! ^-^

I've made a tutorial on how to do an effective personification if you'd be interested in having that in your group…
TeruKun Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014
LOL wasn't expect a tutorial, but sure I'll accept it into the group (though at the end of the day it's the artist's choice on how they choose to represent something though hopefully ppl will take advice for this)
Emeiri Featured By Owner Edited Jun 14, 2014
Yeah, it's just something to help people make the most of personification *shrug*

Arigato (thankies) for featuring my work in this group! This group is great and really made my day.
I might make some more '-tans' in the future, (but I cant think of anything).... right now I am working on an OccupyWallstreet-tan ,of course.
