Hey everybody!

We're still refining things here, so I wanted to take some time to let everyone know about a few changes we've made. Here are some important things for you to know:


1. There is now a submission limit of one per week. This will keep the number of submissions to a more manageable level.

2. The time before a submission expires has been lengthened to two weeks. We have a few admins who can't get here very often, so this should give them more time to vote!

3. Founder, co-founder, and contributor's submissions are now subject to a vote.


1. We do not accept photography!

2. We do not accept submissions that are just body parts!

3. Submissions to the incorrect folder will be declined!

These are all rules we've had from the beginning. If you want to review all of them, you can read the group's front page or in this journal:…

Thanks for reading!

This group is for art of manly men!
Men submitted to this group may be of any sexual orientation, creed, class, religion, or age (as long as they are not still boys).

Manly-Men's administrators reserve the right to reject pieces for any reason. We are more than happy to explain why; please feel free to contact us with questions about individual submissions.

Co-Founders - Can vote on incoming submissions, and invite contributors. Have some moderation privileges, as well as some responsibilities. Don't be surprised if you are occasionally asked to help organize Manly-Men's submisions!

Contributors - Can vote on incoming submissions.

Members - Members can submit deviations if they get approval of 3 votes.

- Body parts without faces - for example, buff arms, manly hands, or manly torsos. All images submitted must include enough of the face for us to determine whether it is masculine or not.
- Illustrations traced (all or in part) from photographs, or from other illustrations.
- Pictures on notebook paper, things you have colored by scribbling, or anything you put very little effort into.
- Vector traces.
- Portraits of real people. This means no photographs.
- Anthro/furry: we do accept men who are marginally inhuman, but will not accept full anthro or 'furry' characters, or monsters.
- Images created in Poser, composed of 3D models not 100% created by you.
- NON-manly men. Being male does not mean the image will meet the group standard for 'manliness'. Having a super-muscular body does not necessarily mean that we will accept the image. Common reasons for rejecting otherwise 'manly' images are:
---- Young/boyish faces
---- Feminine faces
---- The actual character is masculine, but the style the image is
drawn in is feminine (ask yourself: is my style masculine?)

In order to meet the needs of our members, art deemed to be lacking in adequate man-qualities will be rejected. We are not trying to be jerks! There are plenty of clubs on dA that will accept art that we don't. You can find many of them in our Affiliates.

OK...I am addressing the admins/co-founders/and founder when I say: "Hear me out"...NOW, this isn't JUST photography.  It's a story, a true story, that deviates from the norms that society has standardized...

I became a member of this group several weeks ago as I personally believe I am a very manly man.  Rock on!

I contributed an artwork/deviation to this group--a self-portrait with a story about how I coincidentally joined the United States Marine Corps, which is the toughest in the world, on the day of my country's worst tragedy,  September 11th, 2001.  After waiting about a week for approval, I find out it was DENIED.  I take this as both an insult AND act of hypocrisy. 

So I righteously ask every member of this group this question:  What is MORE manly than joining the most elite modern military tacticians on the worst possible day to join?
