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


Still working on the rules, so please be patient with us. If something gets denied, please don't take offense. (rules updated 07/24/2014)

General Rules Summary

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. I don't want parents offended at what they don't want their kids seeing. I don't want people of varied beliefs or religions feeling left out. The more tame your art is, the more people you'll be available to. Bottom line: Cleaner art = more art pimpage. While this group isn't directed at children, I feel responsible for what they see. I was inspired by fantasy at a very young age, and want to inspire people of all ages with your artwork. :)

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, and kept tame enough not to be overpowering to the faint of heart, i.e. guts, tons of blood, people eating people.

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.
:bulletred: No MLP (My Little Pony) art. They have their own groups.
:bulletred: No sparkle dogs, cats, or typical furry personas. I'll make exceptions for dragons and mythical beasts. But a neon colored animal just doesn't cut it.
: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).

To repeat what I've said last time:

For those with join requests, you NEED to tell me you've read the rules. I don't want copy/pastes. Please tell me, in your own words, that you understand specific how's and why's behind the rules. The reason it's important to read the rules is because it makes the submission process much easier.

To add on to this, I'm rarely going to ask you to go back and read the rules before I accept. I takes up too much time when I'm doing submissions. If I deny your join request, it's because you didn't read the front page. I realize some of you just want to join & go, but this group isn't an art dump, and I try to make that very clear on the front page.

With that said, I'm not worried about how "good" you are as an artist. I just want you to be passionate about your art and willing to submit pieces that fit within the parameters. I'm certainly not a quality snob! I do want to give budding artists a chance to show their work and grow. But your work does need to be your own, and more than color changes or doll makers (which isn't art, it's just digital dress up).

As for submission, I got sick last week and struggled to get my energy back. It's that time of year with the pollen, weather changes, and sinus fun. :no:

drosera-sundews Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
As long as it's fantasy and suitable for kids, then yes. No problem :D

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.
