Welcome to the Galleries!

Hail one and all, please make yourselves at home. This humble corner is dedicated to the collection and curation of all work related to Team Cherry's 2017 metroidvania title, Hollow Knight! Having come here, you're almost certainly already familiar, but if not, you can educate yourself here.

A few rules dictating how this group operates:

- Membership is currently open to all.

- Any and all members are able to freely submit artwork to Lurien's Mailroom, wherein it will be reviewed and categorized into one of our existing galleries.

- Please be aware that although submissions to Lurien's Mailroom are automatically approved, you are limited to submitting three pieces per day; furthermore, our inner circle of curators reserve the right to discard any artwork they find to be offensive, inappropriate or otherwise undesirable. Rest assured that these standards are lax, but they do exist.

- We will not feature pieces that were not uploaded to DeviantArt by their creator or owner (i.e. commissioner).

- I'm sure this goes without saying, but please be nice. Violent husks are not welcome.

The galleries explained:

"Promoted, aesthetically pleasing artwork as dictated by the cretinous whims of the privileged upper class." Relatively self-explanatory, an old stand-by for most of DeviantArt's groups.

Canonical Exhibition:
"Official artwork produced by Team Cherry." This space is reserved for images produced by Hollow Knight's developers. Please remember our fourth bulleted rule of thumb.

Decadent Ballroom:
"Compositions depicting scenes and/or multiple characters." Pieces requiring more space for dramatization are moved to the ballroom. Thrilling combat scenes, a moment of quiet reminiscence between friends and virtually anything with a detailed background belongs here.

"This gallery contains artwork focused around solitary characters." The designated space for studies of individual heroes, friends and foes. Single-character artwork with minimalist background belongs here.

Pleasure Theatre:
"Gallery oriented towards humorous artwork." More light-hearted material, including comedic comic strips, slapstick and any such buffoonery should be kept to the confines of the Theatre.

Unsung Heroes:
"Gallery featuring non-canonical Hallownest personages." All artwork featuring OCs, FCs and other characters not represented within the game is to be archived in this gallery.

Miscellanea and Sundry:
"A disordered heap of pieces that don't conform to any currently existing gallery." Interface customization, patterned designs, fan-fiction, edits, dank memes and other less conventional work will be listed here until their volume warrants a gallery of their own.

Lurien's Mailroom:
"Wherein incoming submissions are sorted and redistributed." A member wishing to have their work listed in the galleries should submit such items here to be categorized and admitted.

And so, with the coming of this day—June 12 of the year 2018—and the advent of the Nintendo E3 Direct, Hollow Knight has finally broken the shackles confining it to PC and made tracks for greener pastures on Nintendo's quirky hybrid handheld. For those of you having held out on a purchase previously for want of the Switch port, fear not! This release features buttery-smooth performance docked and undocked along with all the content added over the past year, so you can catch up post-haste!

To all our new handheld brothers-and-sisters-in-arms, we extend a cordial welcome to the community. Feel free to drop by the Discord server at for discussion, fan art and banter aplenty, along with hot tips and advice to keep your adventure rolling!

Otherwise, for those awaiting news of the imminent Gods and Glory expansion, the Switch trailer contains some resplendent new footage (seen roughly after the 1:10 mark) for you to salivate over. Peruse it at your leisure here.

EDIT: Team Cherry's own Ari and William appeared for an interview in the Nintendo Treehouse, with a brief sneak peak at the upcoming Godhome location and details aplenty! Mid-game spoilers abound so if you'd prefer to experience the expansion firsthand, you may prefer not to view the link above.

I'm just a little curious about something here if I may ask. Where would one's idea/art of a whole different nest/world in hollow knight end up. I know that we send all of them to the mail room but I'm just curious.

If it's visual artwork, it would likely end up in Unsung Heroes, because of not-strictly-canon characters and places. If it's literary (i.e. fanfiction), it would end up in Monomon's Athenaeum. Either way, we'd be interested in seeing it!

Hmm... Well thankyou very much for answering that.

Hi, I've been here for a little while now... I wanted to ask, where do I put my picture of my OC? I have no clue...
Flavor-Savior Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's pretty easy; you just submit all your artwork to Lurien's Mailroom and we will automagically sort everything into the correct folder!
PinkponyfanOfficial Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2018
Okay. Thanks!

I only have the one picture; I might make another later (well, try to). XP
