Welcome to Folklore and Fairytale. This group is very straightforward, as the name suggests, and is for sharing your folklore or fairytale art and finding work from others that you might be interested in.

Anything folklore or fairytale is welcome! Illustration of particular scenes from stories is especially encouraged, but art is also welcome which just has an element from folklore or fairytales to it (for example a mermaid or castle) as long as it is a full picture, not just an icon or character with no background.

If it's not obvious from the art or the title, please put something in the description of your piece about what folklore or fairytale the picture is from or it may be declined.

Please leave a comment if you'd like to suggest a new folder for the group. New folders will be added as the group gets submissions for folklore from different areas of the world.

Not supported by this group:
- unfinished pieces
- low quality/blurry scans
- photography
- photomanipulation
- 3D rendering
- abstract art

Please submit your best work :)

Hello Folklore Fairy Tale people,

Unfortunately I haven't had time for a few months to properly admin this group. Is anyone interested in taking over for a while?

Thank you for adding me to this group! I`d like, if there were, also place for estonian folklore, maybe in the same folder with Lithuanian and Latvian Folklore? estonia is the third baltic country after all :) Thank you!

Technically, it would be more logical to have Estonian with Finnish, not with Latvian and Lithuanian, since the Estonian people are Finno-Ugric.

Thank you so much for the suggestion! I've added Estonian to the folder, I'm looking forward to seeing your submissions :)
