You are now allowed to submit up to two posts a day, and the submissions will be automatically approved! No more voting! This change is because I do not get over here as often as I'd like to moderate; however, I will periodically be checking the galleries and if there is a lot of submissions being made that don't belong, I will remove them and send that user a warning. If said user continues to make inappropriate submissions, he/she will be banned from the group.
Ever want to draw a scene in a medieval-style fantasy world, but weren't sure what little details to add to make it seem real?
Ever been writing a story set in another time period, but didn't know what activities to have the characters do?
Ever spend hours poring through dA's stock galleries looking for the perfect dress for a photo-manipulation you were trying to create?
This group is designed to pool our collective resources so you can find exactly what you're looking for!
The gallery is broken up into folders devoted to different time periods, with a description in each to help you figure out where to put -- or where to find -- the period you're looking for.
Please do not use an image for a photo-manipulation unless the deviant uploaded it as stock OR you get the deviant's permission to do so.
Abide by individuals' rules regarding the using of stock photography; this means GIVE CREDIT when you use another person's resources.
Be respectful of those who contribute to our shared resources.
Feel free to share the art you make with our references! You can add them to our features folder inside the gallery!For contributors:
DO NOT submit things for which you have no right to post. This means: no scans of book pages unless they are over 100 years old and the copyright has run out; no stealing images from Wikipedia or other free-use websites such as GraphicsFairy; no posting images of art from libraries or museums unless you had permission to take photographs there and took the photographs yourself.
Please use the proper folders for your resources. If you are not sure where something should go, feel free to send a note to TheBrassGlass
Be sure to make your usage rules clear on the images themselves and provide as much detail as you can about what is being depicted and where. This is, after all, a historical references group!
Membership is open and you may submit up to five images a day to each of the gallery folders!
Our group will be focusing on quality traditional and digital art on historical military thematic. All periods will be treated equally. Even if Alternative History, Fantasy and Sci-Fi military isn't our main focus we can still make some exceptions. Pieces of this kind will have to present interesting thematic or background and elaborated composition and will be held to a higher standard of quality than usual.
We have everything sorted and organized from complex battle scenes, Units and characters, naval, terrestrial and aerial vehicles, architecture, equipment and weapons, flags and heraldry. Far east and Pre-Columbian America have their separate folders.
