Submitting Art, Literature and Faves
Media types: We accept traditional and digital art, 3D renders, fursuits and literature. We do not accept photos of plushies or action figures, and we do not accept short 'RP starter' type journals.
Content: At least one character in the submission must be physically restrained in some way. Simply being harnessed or leashed is not enough! Other harmless fetishes may be allowed, but the piece should focus primarily on the bondage.
Standards: For submission to the group gallery, we require completed artwork that is properly inked, shaded or colored and professionally presented, or well-written literature. Incomplete work and sketches can be submitted to our Favourites.
Subject: All fully anthro and feral forms are welcome. Humans or characters which are extremely human-like may appear, but they must not be the main focus.
Treatment: Captives must not be mistreated i.e. injured, tortured with pain or put in life-threatening situations.
Mature content must not be sexually explicit, and must not break deviantART's submission rules on mature content. See also:
FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?
FAQ #305: Is posting 'Adult' oriented artwork alright if I censor it first?
Copyright: Submissions must be made entirely by you, a collaboration between you and others, or something commissioned by you.
Multiple submissions: If you have several works you would like to feature, please don't attempt to submit them all at once. Limits are in place to stop this from happening. If you have lots of drawings that look very similar or share a common theme, please select only the best ones. This is to prevent single artists from spamming the gallery folders.

Should you use Mature Content Tags to hide away?A friend pointed me to this submission today. An artist is asking their followers if they should tag all their submissions as mature content because they feature, simply put, Pokémon creatures being tied up. As someone who's been through all this before, I'm happy to share my thoughts on this topic.
Their description hints at several questions and I thought I would adapt my response to make a general-purpose journal about this, which I can then use in the future to help others.
1. What is the Mature Content Tag? This is the setting that specifies whether your submission contains things that aren't appropriate for all ages, such as nudity, extreme violence, explicit language and other potentially disturbing content. Without it, underage users could see inappropriate things by accident, which of course isn't fair on them.
2. What is allowed on DA and what is considered mature content? This is the most important question
