|The best of the best!|
Good day, and welcome to the Border-of-Gensokyo!
The Border of Gensokyo is a place where the world of Gensokyo and our world meet. In pretty much the same way, the group serves as a meeting place for all Touhou fans, old and new alike. As Touhou fans, we are driven by the goal to spread the Touhou love to the deviantART community and show them what we can do as Touhou fan artists.
This is our mission.
It's easy and takes only a few clicks. Simply click the big "Join our Group" button and you'll be automatically signed into the group.
You may add a short description of yourself or show us some of your stuff but that's optional (read: we don't really require you to do so)
How things work in the Border-of-Gensokyo
We collect Touhou artworks, more specifically: awesome, epic, high-impact, quality Touhou artworks. Works by contributors are automatically accepted.
Q: WHOA....WAIT. WAIT! "Quality Touhou artworks?" I'm an amateur artist and I'm not as good as everyone else! Can I still submit my works?
A: Yes, you can. Submit to the "Critique my Work" folder and one of our friendly admins will provide you with some constructive feedback so you can improve. You can also ask the more skilled members and learn from them!
NOTE: You can submit up to 3 pieces for critique to this folder per week.
We're not just an art collection group. We're also a community of sorts where Touhou fans can make new friends and learn more about the characters, the music, the world, basically everything about the world of Gensokyo.
Exceptional pieces, pieces of very high quality, and pieces that deserve more exposure will go to the "Featured" folder. If an artwork of good quality goes largely unnoticed by the members of the group, we will make sure that it gets the attention that it deserves.
Q: S...so...I don't need to worry...about...not being noticed by the group anymore...right?
A: W...we'll always try to make sure t...that everyone gets a chance to shine, okay?
You can submit nine (9) artworks per week

You can advertise yourself in the group blog. If you're open for commissions, or if you want to promote your website, send us a note and the admins will reply as soon as possible.
NOTE: We are trying our best to treat our members equally, and we don't want others to be left behind. so please give others a chance to expose themselves to the group.

Any questions about the group? Feel free to note us! We would love to hear what you think of the group and what changes can be done to make it better.
Submissions must be Touhou-related and must be yours! Please. Nobody likes a thief. Submitting artwork that isn't yours can get you into BIG trouble.

We accept digital media, traditional media, literature, handicrafts, animations, and even cosplay! As long as it's Touhou-related, you can submit it.

Please submit only fully-finished works. Sketches are open for evaluation.
