I don't normally post so often but hot on the heels of my Christmas Entry where I mentioned the other SteampunkArtists group (the one without the hyphen in the name) and suggested closer co-operation?  I now see that our compatriot group has been deleted:

steampunkartists.deviantart.co…

As of today the other group has been generating a 404 error and if I searched for the group on Deviantart I received no results. I would say that indicated that the admin for the group either deleted the group manually or left DeviantArt without handing over the founder role and as such the group, without a founder, was deleted by default.

As of today, I used DeviantArt's tools to create a group re-using the old group's name, so we now have a true compatriot group, unfortunately with no art entries as they have all been lost. I'll leave a big note on the main page directing visitors here.

I had recently made overtures to take over the other group but as the original founder was gone and the co-founders went inactive too (as far as the old group goes) it looks as if another fine group has bitten the dust.

However, I do suspect fishy business here. I still don't quite understand what happened with this old group, I am beginning to suspect that Arriannarere, the co-founder and the original founder fell out and so he/she deleted the group out of spite). Arriannarere clearly wants nothing more to do with it.

It is all rather sad. The old SteampunkArtists group had twice our membership and triple the pageviews having been active for quite a few more years, so potentially there are a lot of steampunk artists now without a group. If you know any of them please extend a friendly invitation.

P.S. Sadly, due to the death of the old group our group just grew from the fourth largest to the third largest steampunk group on DeviantArt...

P.P.S. Note to self - If I am ever asked to take over a group as co-founder then I always decline as I realised a long time ago a group with an inactive founder is always the impending death knell. You MUST have the founder role to take the group forward.

Group Rules and Info

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the Steampunk-Artists group.


About Us


This is a group featuring ALL aspects of the Steampunk world. We welcome all styles and mediums such as the written word, traditional art, photography, digital art, web designs, clothing, jewellery, cosplay &c as long as the quality is high!

Join Steampunk-Artists today!


Member Rules



Members can submit to the maximum DA allows, currently five per day. Members own submissions must be placed into the correct folder. All submissions of your own art to the featured folder will be rejected as only the moderators will determine what is allowed there. You can suggest another Deviant's art to the Featured folder by comment or PM to an admin.

We reserve the right to move any submissions to/from the featured gallery as we see fit.

All join requests are accepted after review.

When you join we will send you a courtesy welcome on your page to welcome you to the group.


Please be kind and considerate to others, I believe we are a bunch of nice people here!



:star: Group Rules (general)

1. Anyone can join but understand that this group is steered towards the collection and appreciation of Steampunk art

2. Treat other members and admins with respect, no profanities please, anywhere.

3. Have Fun!

4. Don't Spam the group with non-steampunk stuff.

5. Observe the folder structure and submit to the correct location (see below).

6. You MUST read the Rules!

:star: Submitting to the gallery

You do have to be a member to contribute art to the group. All join requests are automatically accepted though I do weed out the spammers.

1. Join our group (if you have not already done so)

2. Click the contribute art button

3. Go to gallery and click the folder you would like to add to (if the deviation is not in the correct folder admins have the right to place it in the correct folder)

4. You can submit up to 5 entries per day!

5. Wait for approval. This could be immediate or take up to a day or so, don't worry - it will happen.

6. The deviation will not be approved if it contains: nudity, extreme violence, copyrighted material, is off topic, or breaks any of deviantART's own policies.

7. We are now happy to receive work-in-progress of
any sort - please make sure it goes into the WIP folder.

8. When submitting new art be sure to place it in the correct folder.

9. Please ensure all submissions have a list of the resources used. if you're too lazy to reference, we may be too lazy to accept

:star: Folders

We are going to be quite strict about submission from this point onward. For a long time deviants submitted into the featured folder and the result was a cluttered mess. We have spent many days tidying up the various folders and we ask you to respect this.

1. Featured - Members and non-members can suggest another Deviant's art to the Featured folder but your own submissions must be placed into any of the other named folders. All submissions of your own art to the featured folder will be rejected as only the moderators will determine what will be allowed there. We reserve the right to move any submissions to/from the featured gallery as we see fit.

2. Cartoon Anime Manga/Comic book - This folder is now closed - this contains our legacy general cartoon style creations regardless of the medium used to create. We discourage general cartoons of pink animals unless there is a specific steampunk aspect and reason for creation. A simple rule is - anything that has overly large eyes isn't wanted. Images of big doe-eyed animals, girls that look like disney fairies, sexualised cartoon females or any other Disney comic book creatures, human or otherwise, without descriptive text that justifies their steampunk design element will be removed. 90% of the stuff that is submitted to DA is anime and most of it is kiddie-art. This type of submission will not be allowed in this group. If your submission looks like one of these Japanese inspired cartoons in any way or form then it isn't wanted here.

Note: The highest quality works of this sort will still be considered and other cartoon works may be accepted but there are no guarantees.

3. Work In Progress - this is a new concept for us - it will allow you submit work that is only partly finished so we can see how the creative process works/progresses.

4. Cosplay, Clothing, Fashion
Fashion - clothing, styles anything as long as it shows an element of Steampunk.

5. Jewellery - Our jewellery section is comprehensive and full of marvellous artefacts. We welcome all new jewellery art. We are very proud of this part of our gallery.

6. Photography - You could put almost everything in here - but we'd rather you didn't. Please check the other folders first to see if there is a more appropriate location, just dumping stuff in here is the first step to being dumped out of the group... This folder should only be used for those unusual images that don't fit anywhere else.

7. Digital Media, Desktop, Mobile, 3D Digital Paintings, Photomanipulation, Pixel Art, Mixed Media with digital content. I know the line between traditional and digital media is blurring but the rule is if it looks like it is made using digital media it will be best to drop it in here.

8. Things, weapons, machines, real life creations
Here we will accept anything that is steampunk in nature but is also real, 3D, a real object, a machine, device, clock, box as long as it is not wearable, goggles accepted!

9. Drawings, paintings, 2D traditional media
Note: If it looks like a painting or drawing then submit it here, if it is truly digital then please submit to the Digital Art folder

10. The Written Word This location is for the written word. Steampunk Art comes in all forms and some of it is written. We cannot determine what might fall into this category. Poetry or prose? We will leave this category here and see what it catches!

11. An untriaged folder for lazy people -This folder will be regularly cleared down, so submit to it at your peril. Please find a more appropriate folder instead.

FAQ #157:
Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?
FAQ #306:
Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want?
FAQ #217:
What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

Lots of rules - but hopefully what you've come to expect from a DeviantArt group that takes its members seriously. Enjoy your time submitting here - please!

If your submissions are not accepted into this group please do not take offence as we may not accept everything.

Please be aware that if you block comments on your account or on your deviations we will not be able to accept your submissions.

...That's all for now. New rules may be added as we see fit. Serious breaches in the club rules will result in a ban from the club (especially breaking the "respect" and "spamming" rules)

Thanks for the warm welcome on my profile page!
I have chosen to post my reply here, as I have a few questions - the answers to which, I think, might be of use to other group members as well.  Normally, I would simply check the group's Submission Guidelines, but I was unable to find such an article in your Journal entries, etc.

I've noticed that your "Photography" folder specifies that it isn't just a depot for any and all photographic art, and that one should check for a more appropriate folder before submitting.  This makes me wonder if there are better places for many of my pics.  For example, I suspect that some of my architectural images (e.g. Walper Corridor ) might fit into the "Stock" folder.  However, as older digital images, they haven't really got the resolution preferred by modern photo manipulation artists.  As such, their greater value is simply aesthetic; and their usefulness as a "resource" is limited mostly to visual inspiration, rather than as a stock background, etc.  As such, I'm not really sure where such pics might belong.

Similarly, a good number of my photos are documentary in nature - celebrating steampunk celebrities such as Abney Park, Steam Powered Giraffe and so on, (e.g. Benediction ), as well as venues and gatherings of the steampunk variety.  

Finally, there are portraits such as A Romantic Cruise - which often feature steampunks in costume, but aren't specifically about the clothing they're wearing.  As such, I don't feel they really fit in the "Cosplay, Clothing, Fashions" gallery - though, if you feel otherwise, I will be glad to place them there.

If you could offer some advice regarding where you feel these works would be most appropriate, I will be glad to save us all some hassle by submitting accordingly.  Thank you for your group, your time and, in advance, for your feedback.

Thankyou for the questions. I suggest you simply post into the most appropriate folder at the time you post. I will learn from your submission styles and soon you will get to know the group. Enjoy submitting and I'm sure we will find a home for your deviations. I will guide at first and you'll soon get the hang. All I really care about is that you take the care to select the folder. That in itself is a step above many deviant's capabilities. Once you get in the swing of things I'll leave you to your own devices. Welcome.

Understood.  Thanks for the prompt response!  As a group admin and co-founder myself, I know what a hassle it can be to deal with a mountain of improper submissions every day; so I'm happy to do what I can in reducing the effort needed to run your group.  :)  I'll do my best to keep things appropriate.

Thankyou. In reality we are quite relaxed, we just start out sounding firm for the total noob. Otherwise they simply post to the first folder they come across.
