Chaps, ladies,

A word to let you know that the two groups I actively maintain are likely to be abandoned in the near future as I can see myself failing to maintain interest after the new 'Eclipse' UI is imposed upon us. I have steadfastly maintained the group but my experience with 'Eclipse' is so negative that I can't see myself using it.

If it remains an option for the foreseeable future then I will keep running the group but when it becomes mandatory then that will probably be a big hint that my time on Deviantart has come to an an end... Deviantart as a concept has been a shrinkingly successful one but I was hoping that Eclipse would be a shot in the arm, instead it is just another tablet-based interface on a site that (I would suggest) is built by users that primarily create their art on desktop systems. This seems such a disparity that I believe DeviantArt will suffer. I may be exaggerating but I might predict that this may even be the early signs of DA's death-knell.

My gripes? I use Windows on a laptop with a reasonably-sized screen but the cluttered and over-lapping interface with massive menus that go off-screen is not an interface I care to use, especially when it is coupled with low speed, increased memory usage and no improvement in functionality. I simply don't see the need.

I do see the need for an improved tablet-based interface, an overhaul of the group admin area, a drawing together of personal and group galleries, folders, favourites, specials and sTash to make them a more cohesive offering. I see the need to augment what 'Core' offers to make it attractive to DA users.

What I want is a first class gallery, a responsive interface for serious Desktop users and an attractive interface for tablet users that alienates neither user group. What I won't do is to put up with a sub-standard interface that makes it an impossible or unpleasant task to maintain my groups on my main machine.

So, there it is. A heads-up that the group will be closed or at the very best abandoned soon. It all depends upon what the DA management intend to do and how much improved Eclipse will be when it is rolled out compared to how it looks today.

I have a feeling though that my time on DA is to be short-lived. I fear Eclipse will be imposed and my time here will be at an end.

IF anyone feels that they might like to take on the challenge of running the group from that point I will take submissions to my private DA mail as long as you feel like running the group in the same manner, then feel free to contact me - but at the moment I promise nothing.

Group Rules and Info

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the Steampunk-Artists group. Please note - this is an ANIME and MANGA free zone


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.

First of all I want you to understand why this rule is in place. You may not be aware but the the current prevalent style for children and teens on Deviantart is Anime or Manga and that this group on DA comprises 90% of the submissions that are placed onto to DA. All groups are currently being swamped with these submissions and if we want to remain a group for mature/high quality submissions then we need to maintain a blanket ban on all such work.

So, we discourage general anime /manga cartoons unless they are high quality and have a specific design aspect and reason for creation - but in general this type of submission will not be allowed in this group.

A simple rule is - anything that has overly large eyes isn't wanted. At first it appears a strange rule but in reality it weeds out almost all Manga and Anime art.

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

So, be aware that if the eye proportions are natural then we are more likely to accept. 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 design element will be removed without question.

If your submission looks like one of these Japanese inspired cartoons in any way or form then it isn't wanted here and no cute Japanese/Korean TV show boy/girl style photos substituted for anime characters either!

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 nor host your submissions and you will be removed from the group.

...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)

I apologize for bothering, but may I share here in the comments a couple of adoptables Steammpunk themed?

Apologies not required. Thanks for the inquiry. I think the adoptables break a few of our rules so best not to submit them here.

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.
