Rules and How We Do Things around Here

UPDATE: January 7, 2015

How to Join:
Hit the Join button. If we find muscle art in your gallery that you made yourself and it's good then in ya go. If not, just watch us instead - it's the same as joining without all the drama.


Big-Muscles is a group for artists who draw, photograph, and might even have themselves - a muscular body. We appreciate the realm of the male model to the power-lifter to the bodybuilder.

Here's what we do not accept:
*PORNOGRAPHIC IMAGES Really? Are you that stupid?
*Ladies Muscles
*Fatties, lardos, heavies images


This group is for those who love, admire, or share the same adoration for anyone, Anthro or Human Male drawn, photographed or 3d, painted, created that depicts a healthy normal muscular body.
