Welcome Fantasy Fans

Should we raise funds to become a super group for another year? 

80 deviants said Yes!
27 deviants said Nah


The rules:

:bulletblue: Respect one another.
:bulletblue: All content must be Fantasy related
:bulletblue: If you have a fantasy related community announcement, you may create a journal about it and submit it. Journals will be approved or denied by the admin staff.
:bulletblue: Please only submit your very best completed work. Tutorials are allowed, but only completed tutorials.

When submitting to a folder, please make sure you are submitting to the correct one.

Gallery Rules:

:bulletblue: The Royal Court is for the best of the best. This is a tough folder to get into, and even members who are apart of The Royal Court group here in the club still must only submit their very best work. If you are not a member of The Royal Court (invitation only, usually the best way to be invited is by entering group contests and impressing us), you cannot outright submit to this folder. You must wait for an admin to appreciate your work enough to add it, which is rare.

:bulletblue: Photography is for images that involve very little editing, and thus do not belong in photomanipulations. Pictures of celebrities (even from a fantasy show), animals, plants, and scenery are not permitted. Deviant ID's, self portraits, and anything non-fantasy are simply not allowed.

:bulletblue: Photomanipulations are, as the name implies, manipulations of photographs.

In order to submit here, all stock must be listed and linked to, and you must use stock that you have full permission to use, either by finding free stock, or paying for the use of it.

You must list all stock in the artist's description, or your submission will be denied.

:bulletblue: Digital Drawings and Paintings are artwork done digitally. This does not include Pixel art or 3D art, which goes into the Pixel or 3D art folders.

:bulletblue: Traditional Drawings and Paintings artwork done with traditional means, be it ink, lead, charcoal, paint, or any other non-digital method.

:bulletblue: Artisan Crafts and Sculptures. This folder is reserved for crafts and sculptures. Custom creations and designs fit well here, but digital artwork or paintings do not belong here.

:bulletblue: Cosplay and Costuming. Costumes and creations that are worn by people/pets. Not a place for photomanips, sculptures, or crafts, this is for professional grade costumes and cosplay, it's for your best fantasy based work.

:bulletblue: Literature and Poetry Fantasy themed literature and poetry.

:bulletblue: 3D Art Art created using a 3D program. Please note, while vector art is beautiful, more must be done to make it fantasy based enough to be welcome in this group.

:bulletblue: Pixel Art Pixel based art, that is fantasy themed.

:bulletblue: Fanart and Fanfiction Fanart must be from a fantasy product. (Lord of The Rings, Merlin, The Hobbit, Dragon Heart, etc.)

Be it a movie, TV show, book, short story, play, anything, the original content must be fantasy.

It cannot be a character from a non-fantasy show done in a fantasy style.
It cannot be a celebrity dressed up to look fantasy themed, unless that celebrity is in a fantasy based show in real life, and you are drawing that character.

If you use models to photomanip into other fantasy characters, you must stick with the stock usage rules: have full permission to do so, list all stock used, list the model, list everything in the artist's comments.

:bulletblue: Mature Art Mature content only. If your submission is mature content in any way, it must be in this folder, regardless ay other media.

Please note, this group allows topless people, but does not allow full frontal nudity by any gender.

We do not allow pornographic material, even if the genitals are covered.


We love our affiliates, and hope you love them, too!

I'm hosting a giveaway.  

If you would like the chance to win any item from my Still for Sale gallery:… for FREE, you can enter.  I may be adding items in the coming months!

You may or may not be aware I have written a book called Talystasia: A Faerytale for Grown-Ups: Volume I.  

To enter my giveaway:

1.  Go to Smashwords:… and click "Buy" to get my book (no, it will not cost you anything).
2.  Click on "Apply coupon" on the next screen and enter coupon code SU75Q.
This will allow you to download my book for free.
3.  Read it, and if you enjoy it, review it on either (…) or (…).  Please make sure to mention that you received a review copy in your review as per site guidelines.
4.  Send me a note and link me to your review.

And that's it.  You can enter twice by cross-posting your review.  I will run this giveaway through April 17th.  On that day I will use a random number generator to choose a winner, and then you can claim whatever item you want from my stock.  You get a free book out of it just by entering.  If this is useful to me, I will run a second giveaway for a custom item of jewelry.  If enough people enter, I may also choose a second winner for a custom item this time around.

Read more about Talystasia below.

This isn't your typical go-on-a-magic-quest-and-fight-dragons fantasy.  It's a dark, gritty drama with a fantasy backdrop where everything is just a shade off of familiar.  It's a story about violent, compromised people struggling to live and love in a world entrenched in moral ambiguity and spiritual emptiness.  Here is the short summary:

Talystasia stands divided.  An ancient wall runs down the city’s center, and for centuries, the Lorens and Telyras have vied for dominance.  But their endless feud is not the only schism that runs through these pages.  Here, loyalties are fractured and hearts and minds are also divided.  Will Andreas Telyra and Roselia Loren triumph on the war grounds within, or will they succumb to the cycle of violence and spiral even deeper into the dark?

I wish there was some sort of "Admin activity" thinger for groups, so you don't end up wasting your time submitting to dead groups lol Unless the group is set to automatically accept all artwork, then it wouldn't matter... until the fioders get full anyway lol

I would like to join this group, but I do not know how to request to become a member... Can anyone give me some pointers? 
RavynCrescent Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
We're an easy group to get into. Go over the rules, look at the artwork and see if you feel you would fit in well. Then, to the left side, you'll find an option to join.

Thanks for the tip! ;)
Nevah-Ann Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2014
