The Horror-Club


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
Sci-fi=/=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.




:bulletblack: All submissions must be related to horror.

:bulletblack: 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.

:bulletblack: We will decline everything submitted to the wrong folder.

:bulletblack: 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.

:bulletblack: Please do not resubmit your art to the same folder several times, while it's still waiting for approval.

:bulletblack: 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.

:bulletblack: 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.

:bulletblack: Movie and Television/Audio Series Art For fan art based on movies, TV shows, podcasts, etc. Not for your own personal film or series project.

:bulletblack: Game Art For fan art based on existing games. Not for your own game concepts for games that doesn't yet exist.

:bulletblack: Cartoon, Anime and Comics Art. For fan art based on existing published cartoons, animes and comics, not for everything drawn in these styles.

:bulletblack: Music Art For fan art inspired by music. Portraits of singers and bands, art inspired by songs etc.

:bulletblack: Literature Art For fan art based on literature, not all art that is literature. Here goes things like a painting based on Bram Stoker's Dracula or a poem based on Alice in Wonderland.

:bulletblack: Mythological and Religious Art For art based on existing myths and religion. Things like vampires, werewolves, ghosts, Kali and Jesus.

:bulletblack: Historical Art For art based on real historical figures and events. Art depicting Jack the ripper, Marilyn Monroe, plague doctors and WWII fits this category.

:bulletblack: Meme Art For art based on memes. Slenderman, Jeff the killer and similar art goes here.




Why was your art declined? In 99,9% of the cases because of one of the following reasons:

:bulletblack: Because it was submitted to the wrong folder.

:bulletblack: Because it was breaking one of our rules.

:bulletblack: 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.

There are no recent benefactors of The Horror Club! You could change that. ;)
Howdy, horror folks! I wanted to send this journal entry out in the sake of full transparency so the group members are on the same page as us admins. (I, personally, hated being mistreated as a member by other groups that kept their actions way-too-secretive, but that's neither here nor there...)
 
Life has shown up in a major way for... literally everyone, everywhere this year. And the admins are no exception. For me, though, luckily not much has changed since I've been working from home for a number of years now. In a last ditch effort to get things somewhat on track around here, I sent out a message to the other admins earlier in September proposing a few changes. Because I still haven't heard back from them (which, by the way, is completely understandable and, for the record, no one should be sending any negativity their way since there are much more important things to be doing right now than voting on deviantArt submissions, but, again, I digress...), I'm gonna go ahead and implement these changes:
  • The time it takes for submissions to expire will be extended from 3 weeks to 1 month.
  • More importantly, the votes needed for a submission to be accepted will be reduced to just 1.
So, this means that for the time being, only the approval of one administrator will be needed to accept a piece. Since it's looking like that'll be just me for now, I'll be sure to respond with details whenever possible about why something is declined. Here's a quick refresher, though, (in case you don't hear back) about the many reasons why artwork might be declined:
  • It's submitted to the wrong folder (details here)
  • There isn't enough detail in the art description about why it belongs in a certain folder
  • There's no actual depiction of "horror" in the piece
  • Anything featuring abusive, hateful, anti-Semitic, etc. imagery
  • Any low quality artwork (bad scan, poorly cropped, unflattering censorship, etc.)
  • Anything containing copyrighted material
  • Photomanipulations that don't credit stock used
  • Anything fetishized (nudity is acceptable, porn isn't)
  • Works in progress (including adopts, YCHs, reference sheets, etc.)
Now, as far as what you can do to get your work in the group: if you've submitted something prior to this journal being posted that hasn't expired, please withdraw that submission before resubmitting. (All old submissions that came in before the settings are changed still require two votes and multiple live submissions of the same piece hurts deviantArt's little head.) If your old submission has already expired, it should already be okay to go ahead and resubmit.
 
Lastly, I really appreciate y'all for bearing with us through all of this. Fingers crossed that these will all just be temporary changes and things will get back to normal for all of us sooner rather than later! small heart - black

Edit: One more time for the folks in the back, lol...
 
If your artwork is completely original, it belongs in the Original folder. UNLESS it features a mythical creature (werewolf, zombie, ghost, vampire, harpy, etc. etc. etc.), in which case it belongs in the Mythological folder.
 
ALL OTHER FOLDERS ARE FOR FANART.
  • Did you draw a character from your favorite movie, TV show, or even a spooky podcast? That should go here.
  • Is your artwork more inspired by the Walking Dead comics than the TV series? Put that piece here with the other comics, cartoon, and anime-inspired work.
  • Did you come up with the most awesomely grotesque Dungeons & Dragons character? Put that sucker in the Games folder!
  • If your favorite song brought some creepy artwork out of you, put that here.
  • If Cthulhu gets you off and you just have to draw his giant ass, the Literature folder is where your artwork belongs.
  • Evil nuns got you down? Stick 'em here in the Religious folder.
  • Do you spend your insomniatic nights reading creepypastas because you're insane like me? Cool! Artwork based on those nutty experiences belongs in the Meme folder.
  • If you've got a strong desire to repaint the Birth of Venus as some kind of demonic hellscape (sidebar: that actually sounds really cool, someone should do that...) or if you just can't think of anything other than this damn pandemic, your evil goddess or Covid-themed artwork would belong in the Historical folder.
  • If what you've drawn doesn't seem like it would fit in any of these categories (an adoptable character, a YCH, a reference sheet, a damn ad for a YouTube video, etc.): it doesn't belong here.
  • And lastly: if it ain't horror, it ain't getting in! 'Kiss of death'

You submitted this piece to the Original art folder. If you'd rather spit venom in a comment than take the minute or so it would take to read our rules and figure out why it was declined, then we're happy to lose you as a member. :) 🖕
