Art posted here belongs to the artist who created it.
It cannot be re-posted without their express written permission anywhere.
This group will never upload an artist's work anywhere without their permission, nor can this group give anyone else permission to do so.
If you are joining or visiting this group with the intention of finding good art to post elsewhere without the artists express permission or at the very, very least, linking back to the original deviation. please leave. That is art theft, even if you are not claiming to have drawn the piece. It takes no time at all to link back to the original source: the artist’s page.
We want our members art to be respected and safe.
It is not hard to contact an artist and ask for permission to share their art somewhere.
It is not hard to say "art by" and give the artist's name and a link back to where you originally found it.
If you love the art, respect the artist.
1 Submission per week. This is to make sure you strongly consider what you submit and only submit your best work.
Respect one another.
All content must be Fantasy related. This group prefers High Fantasy and Urban Fantasy.
If you have a fantasy or art world related community announcement you may create a journal about it and submit it. Journals will be approved or denied by the admin staff at their discretion.
Please only submit your very best completed work. Tutorials are allowed, but only completed tutorials. Work in Progress pieces are not allowed.
When submitting to a folder, please make sure you are submitting to the correct one.
The Royal Court is for the best of the best. This is a tough folder to get into, and even members who are a part of The Royal Court group here in the club still must only submit their very best work. If you are not a member of The Royal Court (invitation only, usually the best way to be invited is by entering group contests and impressing us), you cannot outright submit to this folder. You must wait for an admin to appreciate your work enough to add it, which is rare.
Photography is for images that involve very little editing, and thus do not belong in photomanipulations. Pictures of celebrities (even from a fantasy show), animals, plants, and scenery are not permitted. Deviant ID's, self-portraits, and anything non-fantasy are simply not allowed.
Photomanipulations are, as the name implies, manipulations of photographs.
In order to submit here, all stock must be listed and linked to, and you must use stock that you have full permission to use.
Digital Drawings and Paintings are artwork done digitally. This does not include Pixel art or 3D art, which goes into the Pixel or 3D art folders.
Traditional Drawings and Paintings artwork done with traditional means, be it ink, lead, charcoal, paint, or any other non-digital method.
Artisan Crafts and Sculptures. This folder is reserved for crafts and sculptures. Custom creations and designs fit well here, but digital artwork or paintings do not belong here.
Cosplay and Costuming. Costumes and creations that are worn by people/pets. Not a place for photomanips, sculptures, or crafts, this is for professional grade costumes and cosplay, it's for your best fantasy-based work.
Literature and Poetry Fantasy themed literature and poetry.
3D Art Art created using a 3D program. Please note, while vector art is beautiful, more must be done to make it fantasy based enough to be welcome in this group.
Pixel Art Pixel based art, that is fantasy themed.
Fanart and Fanfiction Fanart must be from a fantasy product. (Lord of The Rings, Merlin, The Hobbit, Dragon Heart, etc.) We have been accepting some manga, but this really is not the group for it. High Fantasy and Urban Fantasy is what our members love.
If you use models to photomanip into other fantasy characters, you must stick with the stock usage rules: have full permission to do so, list all stock used, list the model, list everything in the artist's comments.
Mature Art Mature content only. If your submission is mature content in any way, it must be in this folder, regardless any other media. We'll allow almost anything DeviantArt allows into this folder, but only this folder.
We do NOT allow:
NON-Fantasy related art
Essentially, we allow topless and naked photos, we do not allow visual representations of the act of sex.
Members here will appreciate a naked Nymph, strolling through a forest. They will not enjoy a graphic depiction of a Nymph and a Satyr having sex, and deviantart doesn’t much appreciate it either.
All mature art must be marked as such, and have the content blocker on that DeviantArt requires, and must not, in any way, feature children (anyone under 18 years of age) or any instance of rape. This is a huge deal for us, opening a Mature Art folder and easing up on the rules, please don't break that trust.
