Hi eveyone!!! :D I am now able to update the page more often!

Just to let you know, i have added a new folder to the gallery, called 'Reptilian Tutorials, Stock and Brushes' :D I was thinking of a folder that members could seek out if they are in need of some texture, pattern or design inspiration for creating their own fantasy reptiles for themselves or the group! :)


Our Groups Mascot! A Crested Gecko designed with wings! :D >>

Love her <3


Group Info

Hello! :) we are a group based on fantasy/mythological reptiles!
:D i keep reptiles and i love them to bits, i even uploaded photo's to DA of them from time to time and frequently base drawing or chracters on them (especialy my snakes!). But the reason i decided to found this group is because i havnt been able to find a group dedicated to the herps of the super natural world! :O
:) So if you have a favorite reptilian or amphibian fantasy creature you enjoy drawing or you have your very own creation, we'd love to see them!!

A few favorites from all over DA! :D


Group affiliates! :) feel free to affiliate with the group! ^__^ i would love to affiliate with other groups who share a pasion for fantasy reptiles!
How has everyone been over this past year? Coming up with any new herps for us to see? :)

I've been researching a lot more about reptiles recently and am keen to get started on some new works!

Does anyone in the group keep Royal/Ball Pythons? If so, then you are probably aware of the wide variety of stunning morphs (colours and patterns) of these amazing snakes that are out there, they have been an amazing inspiration to me recently and here are a few that I admire most!


1 – Bumblebee Morph -… - This morph is a beautiful bright yellow with interesting patterns :) is also makes for a very cute marking design for a small fantasy reptile!

2 – Lesser Black Pastel -… - Stunning in every way! The soft blend of natural colours in this snake make it very elegant looking and its patterns are well formed too!

3 – Piebald Ball Python -… - A very interesting blend, there are many ‘painted’ animals out there, but it seems to look even more stunning on a reptile!

:D There are many more morphs out there and nearly every reptile has amazing colours to see and that you can use for inspiration!

Have a look at Crested Gecko morphs too! Amazing what’s out there! – And they are cute too!  -…  


From artist :icondrerika:


Drerika is an amazing fantasy artist who creates detailed and vibrantly coloured works! She works in traditional media (usually graphite/colour pencils, watercolours). And will try to draw anything and everything. She accepts both Paypal (USD$ or EUROS) and also DeviantArt points! Prices start from 3$. :)

If you like what you see, she is open for commissions and you can find out more detailed information in this journal. :D >…


Wishing everyone well and a happy-herp filled day! :D

~ HRLSS-GeckoTea



:D this group accepts any fantasy art to do with reptiles, amphibians and wonderful OC's you may have! I also would like to see some dragons as well! (i have made a special folder for them as i get a large number of them submitted :XD: ) :) There will be folders for each kind of art medium (i.e traditional, Photoshop etc...) and you can submit any fantasy reptilian artwork you have!


Just submit your art to the correct folder in the gallery! :D

I do love dragons and i think that they are the best example of a fantasy reptile, :D but i also think that they might swamp the gallery a bit because of their popularity and shadow the other reptilian creatures.... But i agree they are beautiful and stunning! :D and I’m sure that a lot of you have your own brilliant species that you want to share! >w< so! i have set up a special folder just for them! :)

Be nice to everyone :) (though i am sure you will be~ :D)

All submissions must contain a creature/human that has a reptile/amphibian trait or that is fully reptile/amphibian. ;D the more unique the reptile the better!!


I would like to see finished works in the gallery's D8 un-finished works won’t be allowed I’m afraid!
^__^ i think that is about it with rules for now. :) if you have any questions about submissions or anything, let me know :D

Enjoy our reptilian world! And share your love for mythological reptiles/amphibians! :heart:

Feel free to decline the art i submitted. i wasn't sure if it would be accepted or not but decided to give it a try anyway. There will be no hard feelings if it's declined lol.

It's become painfully clear that you will never feature my art, so I wish to respectfully withdraw membership 
HRLSS-GeckoTea Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hi there! :C Sorry if your work has not appeared in the gallery, I don't get much time to check up on my group and only occasionally can check it.
Budzillakingofbeer Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2014   Traditional Artist
Thank you for accepting me as a  member and I hope that you will become patrons of my work. Hug

I just thought I would let you know that you don't have a "contribute to this gallery" option on your literature folder. 
HRLSS-GeckoTea Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
ahh, sorry about that! :) I'll try and get it fixed.
Courier2001 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist Writer

My submissions this group still alive?
HRLSS-GeckoTea Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Hi there! :( Sorry for the late reply!

This group is -sort of- alive, :( I'm finding it so difficult to manage a group at the moment as there is a lot going on in my personal life. :) please feel free to keep submitting though and I will try and check submissions more regularly.
