This is a group for all horror fans. We're not elitist so all deviants from beginners to experts are welcome to showcase their art here. We like the dark, morbid, gory, eerie and evil. If you do too this is the place for you so please take a look around and try not to lose your head.
On the other hand, please consider:
Fantasy =/= Horror
Epic battles =/= Horror
Goth =/= Horror
Grotesque =/= Horror
Fetish =/= Horror
Emo =/= Horror
Cyberpunk =/= Horror
All these kinds of art could have a horror touch, but if there isn't - your submission is declined.
Abstract art - the most difficult kind of art to judge. Well, since we're not an abstract, but a themed group, you should put an effort in your works for them to horrify us, not only by the title.
All submissions must be related to horror.
We don't accept the following: poor quality scans or photos, pornography, unfinished works, deviations used to advertise commissions, works using copyrighted material you don't have the permission to use or works based on movie/game screenshots.
We will decline everything submitted to the wrong folder.
When submitting art to any of the fan art folders (which are all folders except for the original art one) please comment the submission with a description of what the fan art depicts, if that's not already stated in the deviations description. If something is submitted to one of the fan art folders but has no description of what the work is based on it may be declined if we don't recognize what the work is based on.
Please do not resubmit your art to the same folder several times, while it's still waiting for approval.
You may not suggest your own art for favourites or Featured folder. All such submissions will be declined.
All folders in our gallery, except for the Original Art one, are for fan art of different things. What goes into which folder has nothing to do with what medium or style the deviation is made in. Here all focus is on the motif.
Original Art All original works not fitting for any of the folders below belongs here. It's for things not based on existing cartoons, animes, comics, literature, mythology, religions, movies, games, music, history or memes.

Why was your art declined? In 99,9% of the cases because of one of the following reasons:
Because it was submitted to the wrong folder.
Because it was breaking one of our rules.
Because we feel that the quality or theme doesn't fit the group.
If we declined your submission feel free to ask us why and we'll gladly explain. Nine times out of ten the problem is you've submitted the artwork to the wrong folder and we'd be happy to accept it if you resubmit it to the right one.
