A place for Anime fanart with a focus: Refined.. detailed.. abstract.. but always Anime, and features at least one human character who is most likely female.
I cannot specifically define what a typical Patchuu submission should look like, but I know it might feature a lady of sorts, they must be drawn in the Anime style. The overall piece should have one or more of the following: Abstract, depth, or highly detailed. You must get lost in the image for a bit, you cannot just stare at for a second and go, "She's cute!" and be done, it should leave a sense of awe or make you impressed. Any sort of sexual desire you might have would be forgotten replaced for other feelings.
Bonus: If the piece features a feminine person. A character whose presentation goes beyond the normal when it comes to their clothing in a feminine style. Clothing in other styles that clearly have a lot of time put into them will probably follow the original suggestions of what counts. So you can win that way too!
Post great art, not shit! Just because it has well drawn or fancy character, doesn't mean the art isn't shit. Overall talent and skill of art should be considered.
Not gaudy, avoid blatant sex appeal.

Avoid character's that have exaggerated human features. (Outlandish breasts/butts)
Avoid lazy composition. If backgrounds are important to the composition should have effort into the work, good artistic style. Should not look like a backdrop of your senior yearbook picture. You know, the one your mom begged you not to use.
Art is very subjective so don't be afraid to talk with moderators or other users if you are unsure. It takes time and practice to understand and notice what a piece provokes and shows. We will have the final say. Being fair is hard, but remember we will likely be more lax than strict in the rules. If it seems we are strict, we aren't even close.
These are all guidelines, but submission can lack or break one of these items if it excels in another way. I just hope you have the taste and respect to find the best. Mods are still the Queens, we do as we like.
