Sister Group:
Join for double exposure!
I run both groups.


If something gets denied, please don't take offense.

General Rules Summary

If this seems too long, skip to the Yes/No Section at the bottom, but please come back to this at some point.

Help keep this group between roughly PG to PG-13. A good general rule is this: If Disney wouldn't put it in a movie directed toward ages 5-13, than don't submit it here. That doesn't mean we do childrens' art only. It just means it needs to be visually safe for children. I want all walks of life to feel welcome. Bottom line: Cleaner art = more art pimpage.

What should fantasy art contain? Wizards, Faeries, Swords & Sorcery. Elves, dwarves, winged humanoids and creatures. Dragons, wyrms, Qirin, sea serpents. Mostly anything NOT seen in Steampunk, tech, or superhero. Elder Scrolls style "steam punk" is fine, since it's magically powered with souls. Zombies and evil creatures need to be magically created, but no cannibalism or senseless gore.

If it has a magical origin somehow, or is myth/legend related, submit it here.

ALL ART MUST BE YOUR OWN. :) If you've commissioned a piece from someone, submit the work from their gallery with the + add to groups feature.

:bulletblue::bulletblue: General rule of thumb: PG to PG13. :bulletblue::bulletblue:



:bulletgreen: Your art must contain something that is very obviously fantasy. Mages, Knights with enchanted items, magical forests with will-o'-the-wisps and faerie lights.
:bulletgreen: OC's that are legitimate fantasy.
:bulletgreen: Game/book/movie/RP board games (think D&D). Goes in the Fan Art Folder. Remember, they need to be doing something Fantasy, or else it defeats the purpose.


:bulletred: No submissions with maturity filters on it, for any reason.
:bulletred: No nudity, micro-kinis, cleavage on both ends, or anything you'd expect from a strip club. The Ariel Little Mermaid thing is fine, so long as she isn't busting out of her shells.
:bulletred: No furry art, including sparkle animals. Exceptions are dragon-like, gryphon, or other mythical creatures related to fantasy. A neon colored animal just doesn't cut it.
:bulletred: No MLP (My Little Pony) art. They have their own groups.
:bulletred: Absolutely no Scifi or Superheroes. Submit those to All-Sci-Fantasy
:bulletred: Respect your fellow members. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all (which would include profane language).

First of all, sorry for not always getting to submissions every Wednesday like I hope to. Last week I was fighting off a seasonal allergy attack before it could begin. Before that I had some last minute sewing. Why? Because that's apparently what every Reenactment lady does before an event! And that's after spending the entire month prepping and planning. I don't even camp or have a giant wooden chest of junk yet. :rofl:

As I went through submissions today, I started thinking about my own art. Or lack there of. 10 years ago, when I first signed up with DA, I felt like I had all these ideas. I had all this art I wanted to create, because fantasy inspired me so much that I just had to get my ideas out. As I was in college, I thought I had to only create business collateral, because that's what people in an office thought of when they heard "Graphic Design." I've slowly gone down the path of realizing that my real passion has always been in fine art, and as an illustrator.

Now I'm at a point where I'm re-evaluating myself as an artist. While going through everyone's submissions, I've been inspired by what all of you create. Some of you write, others paint or draw. Whether or not you have a successful business as an artist, or you just work 8-5 in a boring job, you still make time to let your art be your passion. It may seem like all I do is log in once a week and deny naked art (:giggle:), but I don't. I actually do view your art. Sometimes I'll comment if I have time. Even if I don't comment, I do want you all to know that I enjoy your art. If someone leaves, I do ask why, in case I can do better or even create a whole new folder. And I have done that before!

It's been over a year since I've taken this group as my responsibility, and I've enjoyed it. I've truly been inspired by what I come across. I'm glad that so many of you have been regulars, and grind out that artwork every week. It means that you're passionate about what you do! There's such a variety here as well, and I love seeing that. Thank you all for being awesome. I hope the art never stops coming in, because that means you're all still going strong.

No idea what came over me, but I hope you all never give up on your art. I know that not all artists come from supportive backgrounds, and others just get down on themselves. Maybe someone out there needed a pep talk. If you did, this was for you.

When will the new folders be open for member contribution? I would like to submit something into the 'Mer-People' folder but I can't seem to at the moment.

Ohhh. Let me go check the permissions. I'm so sorry for that. Sometimes when new folders are made, things go crazy.
