is a group where alien lovers of all sorts can come together. It doesn’t have to be all romance, either. In fact, we encourage aliens of all natures, be they friendly, hostile, quirky, etc. We do not, however, accept a lot of artwork of spacecrafts or space scenes without aliens present.
This group is dedicated to the aliens that have changed our lives via through television, movies, comics, or actual encounters. So, let me give you some valuable information and you’re ready to go:
1. Try to stick to alien-looking characters in your artwork. I know there are a lot of human-like races to choose from, such as Nordics, Pleadians, Saiyajins, Superman, but they look TOO human. If they are nearly impossible to pick out of a human crowd, they may not count. But, characters such as Na’avi, Thundercats, Predator, and characters that have certain special physical features would be fine, since they are visibly different from human beings. If you have a question about placing your artwork here, feel free to ask. We’re pretty easy-going. Keep in mind that human characters and human-like characters ARE allowed to be IN the submissions, so long as they have something more alien in the image as well.
2. I don’t put a submission limit on my group. I also don’t put a rating on my group. So, you can post those more suggestive pieces of original or fanart. All pairings are acceptable, be them straight, yaoi, yuri, yiff, etc. Post responsibly, however. Make sure that your work has the proper maturity warnings. I don’t mind cross-overs either. My only preference is that the work be at least somewhat tastefully done. We don’t want a ton of meaningless smut. Also, remember the younger members ^-^ [The maturity warnings are normally already covered when you upload the art into your own gallery. It’s at the bottom before you submit it]
3. Be friendly to the other members. Critique, but don’t be cruel. This place is supposed to be fun for everyone. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
4. To affiliate, there’s a button on the top of your own group’s page. It kinda walks you through that. You don’t have to be an alien group to affiliate with us.
5. WEBCOMICS! We feature a collection of webcomics on this group. We still cover an alien theme, although now it can be ANY sort of alien of inner or outer space, including human-like aliens and astronauts. If you have a webcomic that meets this criteria and you would like to share it, send a note to or and provide the following information:
The title of the webcomic
The URL/Web Address
If possible, the update schedule
A short description of the webcomic. Please give a warning if the content may be offensive to some unsuspecting readers.
Before you submit artwork, be sure to find the right folder. If you cannot find the right folder, just be sure all the information about the work is in the descriptions and leave it in the Featured section and we’ll place it. Also, fanfiction is accepted in just about every folder so long as it meets the topic of the folder. So, to make life easier, let me explain the folders to you:
Contest Entries This is where you place submissions that are for our current contest. We have a contest section, as well as many blurbs on the blog with information about the current contest running, due date, and topic, as well as some guidelines. Read the guidelines carefully. We wouldn’t want anyone to miss out by accident if they entered. UNLESS MENTIONED OTHERWISE, ALL alien fandoms are acceptable for contests. Fanfiction is not always accepted in this folder. Please read the guidelines of each contest to be sure. If you would like to submit fanfiction or an original written piece, please note the group or to ask if the exception can be made. Sometimes guidelines can be shifted to accommodate written work if people are truly interested. But please, ASK FIRST.
Contest Winners Members do not have access to this feature. When a contest ends and a winner is chosen, only Admin can access this. The winning entry will be placed in this folder with the winners of past and future contests.
Alf This is a classic television show about an alien named Gordon Shumway, aka Alf, a Malmakian alien that crashed landed his spaceship on Earth, more specifically, into the Tanner Family’s garage. Chaos and Comedy ensue as Alf becomes a member of the family.
Aliens in Movies This folder is for the fanart you have that does not have a specific folder already. So, perhaps you have fanart from Aliens or Predator. Perhaps you have art from Planet 51 or Signs or Spaced Invaders. If you don’t see a specific folder for it, it goes here. Please keep in mind that, though I know there are aliens that appear human, let’s try and go for the more alien-looking sorts if possible. Also, OC’s for these movie fandoms are also accepted. Fanfiction is accepted.
Aliens on TV This folder is for fanart you have done of aliens that appear on television shows, past and present, and do not already have a folder in the group. Maybe it’s a picture of a Nemakian from Dragonball Z or Kazoo from The Flintstones. Maybe you have the entire cast drawn from the classic cartoon Galaxy High. Of course, let’s not forget fanfiction. If you don’t already see a folder for it, it goes here.
Asgard The Asgard is a race of Grey-like aliens from the Stargate Fandom. They appeared in Stargate: SG1 and Stargate: Atlantis. Canon and OC characters are accepted as well as fanfiction so long as the Asgard play an important part in the piece.
Alien Fishbowl Alien Fishbowl is a webcomic about religion and aliens. A lot of original artwork from the creator is featured here. But, fanart and fanfiction of this webcomic is allowed as well.
Avatar This movie, by James Cameron was an instant hit. ?, a paralyzed marine is sent to the planet Pandora where he controls a Na’avi avatar. He is then sent to mingle with the Na’avi, a race of tall blue aliens with tails to learn their ways and find a way to allow their two worlds to live together peacefully. Consider it like a space age version of Pocahontis. Anyway, the Na’avi became a very popular topic of art after the movie was released. So, any Na’avi artwork, canon or OC is accepted here. NO PHOTO MANIPULATIONS. This folder will also accept any of the animals featured on Pandora, including OC animals that follow the same style. Fanfiction is accepted.
Brackenwood The Brackenwood Series was created by ? and featured as flash cartoons and can also be seen on Youtube. While several characters were introduced, the most popular was a satyr-like character, known as a Dashkin named Bitey. You can see the cartoons here: link, or you can see them on Youtube. Fanart and Fanfiction is accepted here.
Comics and Memes If you have a comic strip you would like to share or one of those nifty meme thingies, this would be the place to put it, so long as it is alien related.
Cosplay This is a fun folder. If you or any of your friends have cosplayed an alien character of ANY sort and taken pictures, then this is the folder for you. Also, don’t be surprised to see artwork here. If a human character in a piece is cosplaying as an alien OR if an alien character is cosplaying as another fandom character, you may find it here. No fanfiction or original writing is accepted in this folder.
Crafts & Merchandise This folder is for photos or features of objects that have been made, such as T-shirts, bracelets, charms, pendants, ornaments, plushies, apparel, and other sort of things members have made with aliens features. If you are selling these items anywhere other than the DeviantArt store, such as through Zazzle or other online stores, please provide the URL/Web Address. Obviously, no written material is featured here unless you are offering a comic book or novel. If that’s the case, information regarding the publication will be needed.
Cryptids This folder is for those creatures that don’t QUITE meet the alien requirement, but are connection directly or indirectly. So, this folder accepts artwork of creatures like: The Loch Ness Monster, The Flatwoods Monster, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, Mothman, Athool, Jersey Devil, etc.
Destroy All Humans This is a video game series that was playable on Playstation 2 [and probably other game consoles]. It featured a Grey-like alien known as Furon, which were seeking cells from human brains to harvest ancient Furon DNA to revive their race. The two main characters of the series was Orthopox [Pox] and Cryptosporidium [Crypto]. If you have any fanart or fanfiction about this fandom, it goes here.
Disney Aliens This could be the little green aliens from Toy Story, Stitch from Lilo & Stitch, Wall-E from Wall-E or any alien from a Disney feature. Fanfiction is welcome here.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial It wouldn’t be a proper group without this fandom. E.T is a movie about an alien that was accidentally left behind on Earth. He meets a boy named Elliot and the two become close friends. When E.T starts to become ill, Elliot and his siblings make it their mission to help E.T phone home. Fanart and Fanfiction regarding this Speilburg classic are accepted here.
Greys Greys are a race of aliens thought to actually exist. They are skinny with teardrop heads and almond shaped eyes. Considered one of the most recognizable alien images on the planet, they are popular topics of art. If you have pieces that feature Greys, this is the place. Perhaps they are Greys you’ve actually encountered, or perhaps they are part of a project you are working on. Grey images of all sorts are accepted here. NOTE: Artwork involving the movie Paul is accepted both in this folder and in Aliens in Movies. Greys featured in Webcomics are also accepted here if a folder has not already been made. Grey Hybrids are also acceptable in this folder. Also, fanfiction is accepted in this folder but original writing is NOT. If you have original writings for a story or your personal encounter with Greys, submit it in Original Writings. Also, if Greys are a particular interest to you, check out this group:
Invader Zim This was a cartoon/comic that was created by Jhonen Vasquez and featured on Nickelodeon. An Irken, known as Zim is sent to Earth to conquer it once he has learned the best way how. However, the mission was a ruse by the ruling party: the Almighty Tallest to get rid of him. Now, along with his malfunctioning robot, Gir, Zim continued to believe that he is on a top-secret mission and battles head to head with Dib, the only person who knows Zim is an alien. This folder is tricky. While Invader Zim fanart is accepted, try to remember that the human characters are odd but not aliens. Be sure that Gir, Zim, or some other Irken or alien character is featured along with Dib or Gaz to make it acceptable. All alien and alien/human pairings are acceptable. Fanfiction is definitely accepted here.
Irken OC’s Why does this have a folder of its own? There are so many OC Irken characters out there that they don’t even relate to Invader Zim at ALL except for the fact that they are Irken. SO, if you have an Irken OC that is NOT connected to the original IZ fandom, it would probably fit here. If any canon characters appear in the artwork, it goes in the fandom folder, not here. As far as writing is concerned, original writings [not involving any IZ canons] are welcome. The ONLY canon characters allowed in the writing are the Almighty Tallest.
Keroro Gunso also known as Sgt Frog is a Japanese manga series by Mine Yoshizaki and was later adapted into an anime series by Junichi Sato. The anime series ran from April 3, 2004 – April 3, 2011 and has 358 episodes. Both the anime and manga are comedies that follow the attempts of a platoon of frog-like alien invaders to conquer Earth. Sergeant Keroro, the titular character, is the leader of the platoon, but is at the mercy of a human family of three after he is captured while trying to hide in one of the family member's bedrooms. In both the manga and anime, Keroro is forced to do meaningless chores and errands for the family after his army abandons his platoon on Earth. The platoon has many failed attempts at taking over Earth. All Keroro Gunso fanart and fanfictions are of course, welcome in this folder but please, no out right pornographic works. Fan characters from any species in the Keroro Gunso universe are welcome, along with crossover fanart (example: Keroro Gunso and Invader Zim) but with crossover fanart and fan fictions, these must contain at least one character from Sgt Frog.
Marvin Martian This character was featured on Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies. He was known not only as Marvin Martian, but also, I believe Commander X-2. He also became the main protagonist in shows like Duck Dodgers and the 24th ½ Century where he would do battle with Daffy Duck and Porky Pig. Anyway, not only is Marvin Martian artwork accepted here, but also that of the Queen of Mars and other Martian characters in this fandom. Don’t forget Tiny Toons! Martia Martian, Marvin’s niece, is also accepted. Fanfiction is accepted for Marvin, Martia, and the Queen of Mars. Duck Dodgers fanfiction is accepted here as well so long as Marvin, Martia, or the Queen of Mars is featured prominently.
Pandora This title is a webcomic by . Nova is sent to a compound in space to learn from alien mentors. Along the way, she gets to meet other amazing alien individuals. Original artwork from the creator is featured in this folder. However, fanart and fanfiction of this webcomic are also accepted here.
Original Aliens If you created a race of aliens, you may feature them here. But, they must not be able to fit in any other category. These aliens must be made up by you. OC’s are acceptable if they do not fit in other categories, as in, they cannot be a Grey or Irken or Malmakian, etc. Stereotypical aliens may be featured here, such as the stereotypical Martian. No canon characters of ANY sort from other fandoms can be featured here. No writings are accepted here.
Original Writings No fanfiction of any sort is allowed here. You cannot mention any canon character or copyrighted race, such as Irkens or Malmakians. This folder is for original written work or excerpts. Perhaps you’ve had an actual encounter and have written it down. Perhaps you have a story about aliens. This is the only folder where the alien can be a race such as Nordics or Pleadians, which appear human. If you have something original you would like to share, this is the folder. If have written something pertaining to Greys, Reptilians, or Hybrids, you have the option of submitting it here, in the corresponding folder, or you can submit it to both the corresponding folder AND this one. Please, no excerpts from published and copyrighted material unless that material is yours.
Other Fan Work Perhaps you have a fanfiction or fanart from a webcomic or book series. If you DO have work that does not fall under any other catefory, then here is a good place to put it. Remember, if you have fanwork from a TV series or movie, put it under those folders. Anything else that is not covered goes here.
Paul Yes, now we have a folder specifically for the movie Paul! Any fanart or fanfiction is welcome here featuring this foul-mouthed but hilarious little alien.
Reptilians Reptilians are thought to be existing aliens. They are basically humanoid reptiles with the ability to shapeshift. Some have wings and horns. Some appear to be dragon-like and some are lizard-like. This folder is for any reptilian sort of alien such as a Draco, Terran, perhaps even ancient gods like Quetzelcoatl and Sobek. If it has intelligence and scales, it may very well belong here. Reptilian hybrids are also acceptable. Fanfiction about Reptilians that does not have another folder may go here. If you have any original writings or encounters you would like to share about Reptilians, they would also be accepted here. If Reptilians are of interest to you, check out
Stamps Icons & Journal Skins Stamps seem to be a big thing on DeviantArt. If you have any stamps that are alien related, this is the place to share it. Also, this folder accepts avatar icons. It can be from any alien-related fandom. We also accept emoticons here. For those who have made journal skins for DeviantArt, we also accept those in this folder as well. For Journal Skins, we accept spacecraft art and space world art as well as actual alien art.
Trying Human This webcomic was created by and is featured here: tryinghuman.com . Rose is a young woman that has been repeatedly abducted by aliens. She eventually befriends one of her captors, a Grey named Hue. From then on, she becomes part of a story involving mystery and intrigue, as well as a horde of other amazing characters from Reptoids, Greys, and the Majestic 12. Any artwork or fanfiction for this fandom goes here. NOTE: All human characters must be featured with an alien character. The characters may be in their “Circuit” form. The ONLY exception to the “No Solo Humans” rule is MJ-6, aliens in “Circuit” form, and hybrid OC’s. If you are a fan and would like to see MORE Trying Human artwork, fanfiction, and take part in fun contests, check out these groups:
