This group was founded for the purpose of sharing and collecting the best of the truly unique, strangely beautiful, and wonderfully weird (or just plain odd) art that DeviantArt has to offer. If you are fascinated with the unusual then this is the group for you. This is NOT your classic art group.
We do NOT accept:
-- subjects with nudity. On rare occasion soft nudity is accepted if the work is truly exceptional,
-- excessively macabre work (surgery, spilled guts, etc) although a little blood is fine.
-- erotic or profane content. Anything requiring a mature tag will be automatically declined.
-- works involving or requiring the death or mistreatment of animals.
Only submit your own, completed, original artwork.
Fanart is accepted only if done in your own unique style.
Only high quality work following our guidelines will be accepted.
When applying for membership, keep in mind that we only accept Deviant's with a substantial collection of work and an overall eldritch style. Everyone is welcome to Watch the group. During contests anyone can participate but only members can vote.
Mysterious Mortals: eerie people, engaged in strange activities or in unusual situations.
Fabled Beings: For beings who are basically humanoid in shape but are not creatures, monsters, or ghosts. For instance, elves, fairies, gods, angels, or magical creatures who have taken human shape (fox ladies, etc). Merpeople too...
Uncanny Creatures: Unicorns, dragons, kelpies, strange pets, pookahs, anything magical or mythical, but with an eldritch twist.
Spooky Spectres: Ghosts, spectres, and underworlders unite!
Fantastic Monsters: cthulhu, Frankenstein's monster, criptids, sea creatures -- release the Kraakens!, elementals.
Strange Places: any work where the center of interest is a place -- strange, foreboding, off-kilter, dream-like, etc.
Anomalous Aliens: space battles, black holes, aliens, other worlds.
Weird Mechanics: steampunk, androids, unusual mechanical creations - cute, quirky, strange, puzzling.
Dark Literature/Poetry: all forms and themes are accepted, as long as it's eerie, spooky, dark, mysterious and, of course, wandering off the beaten path.
Mixed Brew: anything that doesn't fit in any of the other folders but still deserves the title of unusual.
