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


PS-Check out our affiliate groups as well!

Can I join!

you should be auto accepted after clicking join, no need to ask :) (your deviations will be screened before accepted though b/c we've had ppl submit art that's unrelated to our group's theme)

well i don't log in on da as much as i used to but i didn't think the groups were ever changed/updated

There should be a join button right at the top, if it's not appearing for you then i'm not sure what's wrong

Is 3D art ok to submit to this group? 
TeruKun Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2015
as long as it's your own art and a personified/humanized version of an inanimate object, sure! I think we have some 'cosplay'/real life photography versions so i don't see anything wrong with 3D art

Hello! I have a question:
Are item-chans allowed to be animals based off an in-animate object/food? Like, a cat based off of a tree? Thank you!

The group's more for humanized personifications but I believe we do have affiliates that'd probably accept that and like pokemon/hetalia giinkas and all of that. :) (and I think they're bigger groups so you'd get more pageviews from them XD /shot lol)
