WorldofWarcraft-Art Rules, Guidelines, and Folder Guide

Welcome to World of Warcraft Art!

A group specifically for sharing your Warcraft or WoW related fanart.

Created to showcase all the best WoW related art DA has to offer! Please feel free to join and share your creations.

:bulletred:How do I join?:bulletred:
Simply click the Join group button at the top! Anyone is welcome to join, and you will be accepted automatically.

:bulletred:Do I have to join to be able to submit my art?:bulletred:
Yes, only members of the group may submit.

:bulletred:Can I become a moderator or admin?:bulletred:
WorldofWarcraft-Art is not actively looking for mods and admins at this time. When a new one is needed, we will create a journal about it.

:bulletgreen:Submission Guidelines - READ BEFORE SUBMITTING:bulletgreen:

:bulletred: You may only submit 1 deviation per day.
:bulletred: Please submit to the correct gallery folder, else your submission may be denied.
:bulletred: Absolutely no stolen work. Copies, traces of existing artwork, or posting work that is not your own will result in being removed from the group. This includes any artwork that someone else made for you, i.e. a commission that you bought. If you didn't create it, don't submit it!
:bulletred: Art collaborations are okay
:bulletred: No Screenshots.
:bulletred: WIPs and Sketches must, of course, be submitted to the "WIPs and Sketches" folder to be considered.

:bulletgreen:How Do I submit?:bulletgreen:
Submissions to the Featured Gallery are not allowed at this time. Just go to the Gallery tab at the top of this page select the "Submit to this gallery" button. Use the drop down box at the top of the window to select the proper folder it belongs to!

:bulletgreen: Why hasn't my submission been accepted yet?:bulletgreen: Unfortunately I am a lone admin that does not check DA that often. I try to work the queue at least once or twice a week. Please be patient.

:bulletgreen:Why was my submission denied?:bulletgreen:
This could be a number of reasons.

Your image was in the wrong category. ( <- this is the main reason submissions get denied.. so please be careful when you submit!)
You may not submit more than once per day.
Your image was deemed not appropriate for this group.


:bulletred: Treat other members with respect.
:bulletred: Absolutely no "faction bashing". ( aka calling people horde/alliance scum) The comments are not funny and they are not welcome here. If you'd like to show off your faction pride, please do so at one of our lovely affiliates. :)
:bulletred: If your work was previously denied due to content reasons, please do not resubmit it.
:bulletred: If you leave the group, your artwork will be removed as well. (You can simply un-watch the group if you do not like the spam. Don't leave us! :)
:bulletred: Anyone caught stealing artwork will be removed and banned from the group.
:bulletred: Leaving inappropriate comments on the main page (or anywhere within the group really) will result in a warning. Two warnings and you're out of the group.

:bulletblue:FOLDER GUIDE:bulletblue:
Azerothian Holidays
The Azerothian Holidays folder is for works that in some way or another closely tie together with a yearly or monthly event of World of Warcaft. That means Winter's Veil, Hallow's End, Darkmoon Faire, Noblegarden, Children's Week or anything else you can find under the "Events" tab in your Achivements. Images must display goods/garb/decorations of said In Game Holiday.

Digital Art 2
Anything that is related with use of digital media but does not go under a "WoW Modelviewer Edit" or a "Screenshot Edit". So that means basically everything drawn from zero.

Digital Art subfolders: Alliance, Horde, Lore Figures, Enemies/Creatures, Locales, Battle and Groups

Traditional Art
Drawings that have been done by hand with pencils, quills, markers, coal, watercolors, and on to a paper.

Does your picture move around? Does it run, shake, dance or even wink at the observer? Then this is the right folder for that!

Model Edits
Any work done with use and help of WoW Modelviewer. Be it a dancing blood elf or grinning troll.

Comics and Meme
Series of similar pictures smashed together as a story or commonly used meme redrawn into a Warcraft character! Or even "Draw it again" memes!

Rocked an awesome Warcraft oufit in real life and wish to share?

Sculpture and Crafts
Anything from handmade trinkets, troll plushies, awesome mana potion necklaces to rocking Warcraft themed guitars, life-sized Thralls and statues of Jaina.

A fan story about Jaina and Thrall? A story of blood elf rogue stalking in Stormwind? Yes please! Does also include any other kind of stories!

The stuff that quite doesn't fit to other folders. So that means banners, icons, awesome nailpaint, crest wallpapers, amazing Warcraft tattoos, or even Illidan stamps!

Adult NSFW
If it shows a little too much bum or bust, you know where it belongs to!

Screenshots taken in-game. "Selfies" will not be accepted! The screenshot should be creative, artistic and impressive in one way or another!

Odd One Out
If not sure which folder is the right one for the selected piece of art, this is the folder to put it to. The admins will sort it out and relocate it in the right folder!

Monthly Contests
A folder dedicated to artwork created for our monthly group contests.

A folder for Warcraft wallpapers and desktop backgrounds. All rules and guidelines apply.

WIPs and Sketches
All unfinished artwork goes here, and here only!

We will try to leave you a note if your submission was denied, but if not feel free to send us a note and ask us. :)


So many of you might wonder why some of your paintings are declined without an explanation, or if explanation is unclear or if your painting has been removed. There are a lot of submissions coming in and we simply don't have time to write a comment to every submission to why it was removed as it is time consuming and tiring to do and we simply don't have enough admins at this point.

So I've summarized all these issues into this post:

1. Your submission was added into the wrong folder.
  - This means if you add your painting into "Azerothian holidays" folder and it has nothing to do with holidays, we will most likely decline it. Or if you add your Orc into an "Alliance" folder.

2. Your submission does not portray a World of Warcraft character / is not about World of Warcraft.
  - Pretty self explanatory. If your picture does not have anything to do with World of Warcraft, it will be declined.
  - This, unfortunately, includes Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone characters.

3. Your submission was wrongly accepted and an admin is correcting the mistake due to one of the two reasons stated above.
 - Yet again, pretty self explanatory. We're still human and sometimes make mistakes accepting wrong submissions.

Bonus: 4. Your submission expired
 - Unfortunately a lot of us admins have either gone very busy with our lives and have no longer time for DeviantART or we've moved up to new platforms to promote our art. We simply don't have time every week to check DeviantART but we'll try our best to keep up with the submissions.

I hope this clears it all up. :) If you have any questions, don't be afraid to contact us.

Happy painting and may your strokes never fail!

We most likely are still looking for new active admins if anyone wishes to take up the reins.
