Tolkien-Voronwë has come to a decision, based on wishing to improve the overall artistic quality and merits of Deviantart. We are closing the "Games and Virtual" folder and no longer accept submissions from virtual environments and image generators.

Lately a great influx of generator images has appeared in Deviantart, especially from Doll Divine. The problem with the generator images is that they have no personal artistic retouches or display of skill added by the uploader. Some artistic merit can surely be found in the image, but it rather belongs to the creator of the templates than the uploader.

It is time to return to the true meaning of Deviantart. True art can take inspiration from anything, even virtual environments. Such art can still be submitted into this group, but the uploader would have to own their brush.
