Welcome to Fantasy-Arts!



Fantasy-Arts is as the name says a fantasy related group, which means that only fantasy related art will be accepted.
There is no quality control here because imagination doesn't care about our skill level, but we still have rules that should be followed.

This entry is all about the group's rules. This is a big group and we are receiving a huge number of submission on a daily basis, these rules are here to help us AND you.
Please read the whole page and make sure you understand everything before submitting to our gallery. :)

_________________________________________________________


List of folders with short explanations:
:bulletgreen: TRADITIONAL ART
    - everything drawn traditionally, on paper, canvas and such alike.
:bulletgreen: DIGITAL ART
   - everything drawn digitally.
:bulletgreen: LITERATURE AND COMICS
   - well, literature and comics. Stories you write. FAN ART of books and comics does NOT belong here. Only submit cover artwork for original writing/comics if there is a link in the description; we won't accept it otherwise.
:bulletgreen: PHOTOMANIPULATIONS
    - transforming a photograph into a desired image. I understand that's a part of DIGITAL ART, but I'd like to have them separated therefore please don't submit photomanips to digital art if there is a folder reserved for them only.
:bulletgreen: ARTISAN CRAFTS
    - everything you make: costumes, dolls, jewelry, sculptures, etc
:bulletgreen: PHOTOGRAPHY
    - you are wearing a costume? You are cosplaying? Then this is where you submit your photo! Still life?
Showing off your super cool new action figure or doll doing amazing things? Put it all here! The mysterious woods behind your house? Why of course! c:

:bulletgreen: SKETCHES AND LINEARTS
    - like the title suggests: sketches, linearts, and concepts, but also studies and everything that falls inbetween.
:bulletgreen: FAN ART
    - fan art of books, comics, movies, TV shows, cartoons, video games, etc. Cover artwork without a link to original writing goes here.
:bulletgreen: REFERENCE SHEETS AND ADOPTABLES
    - well, reference sheets and adoptables! NO ADOPTABLE SHEETS. Maps go here too!


We are highly lenient when it comes to accepting submissions! :)
However, we DO have rules:

:bulletred: SUBMIT TO THE RIGHT FOLDER
:bulletgreen: Submitted sketches must be clean and neat looking without random scribbles and doodles all over the paper. Blank paper is recommended.
We do reserve the right to deny something if we find it too messy or...too simple. 1 minute sketches can be easily recognized.
The art you submit represents you, try to submit your best and finished works only.
:bulletred: AND SUBMIT TO THE RIGHT FOLDER
:bulletgreen: We will only accept mild nudity (slightly suggestive) without a maturity warning on it. If we consider a deviation not suitable for our gallery we reserve the right to decline it.
:bulletgreen: We would appreciate our members to NOT post advertisements/promotions for projects, contest/raffle/giveaway events, or personal gains outside the group. This group is to appreciate fantasy, and there are other groups out there that will accept promotions. If it is absolutely necessary to spread the word, please write a comment in the group profile. NOT the notes, thank you.
:bulletgreen: Please avoid submitting photos of animals (rabbits, dogs, fish, cats etc.) without any fantasy-related content in it. There are many Earthly, humanistic, and animal- related groups out there, but this one's focus should stay on fantasy. THERE WILL MOST LIKELY BE NO EXPLANATION IF ANY OF THESE ARE DECLINED.
:bulletred: PLEASE SUBMIT TO THE RIGHT FOLDER
:bulletgreen: PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS OF THE SAME ARTWORK. It's hard enough to go through 100+ submissions without people doing this.
The admins are very busy with their own lives as well as this group, and we'd like to ask that you have patience when submitting your work.
:bulletgreen: No resources: brushes, "bases", stock images, etc.; only artwork is accepted. Lineart/inking goes in the folder that accepts it.
:bulletgreen: We do not accept journals, tutorials, processes, alternate versions of the same art piece, or WIPs(works in progress).
:bulletred: SUBMIT TO THE RIGHT FOLDER. NO EXCEPTIONS. IF YOU NOTICED WE REPEATED THIS RULE THREE TIMES PRIOR, YOU HAVE BEEN READING THE RULES. GOOD JOB.

NOTE: Administrators are not required to provide an explanation upon rejecting a submission for either of the reasons mentioned above, BUT we do reserve the right to reject a submission simply because we don't find it suitable for our group.

If a member cannot take the time to read the group's rules or submit to the correct gallery folders, then us administrators should not be expected to waste our own personal time explaining why we had to decline your submission. If a submission of yours has been declined without an explanation and you are still unsure what the reason may be even after reading the group's rules, you are more than welcome to request one, but please ask politely & treat us with respect and in return we will do the same. It is perfectly possible that we rejected something by accident so please don't hesitate to ask! :aww:
_________________________________________________________

Also, we are all approachable and nice people. We will gladly help with any confusions or anything at all regarding the group or art. All you need to do is send a note to the group or one of us directly. :aww:
 :bulletgreen: Do you have any suggestions or ideas?
 :bulletgreen: Do you want to become part of the admin team and help us accept/decline submissions?
 :bulletgreen: Do you know how to make this group even better and more awesome?

________________________________________________________

Have a nice day and thank you for being part of our group! We appreciate it, we truly do appreciate every single one our members.
Without you and your amazing submissions, this group wouldn't even be alive now.
Thank you all! :tighthug:
