Welcome Fantasy Fans

Contest to design our new journal layout? 

34 deviants said Yes-- But I cannot participate
25 deviants said No -- I cannot participate
12 deviants said Yes-- I want to participate!
5 deviants said No -- Other reasons


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!


What this will be is a journal entry at the first of every month that will have a specific theme...

  • Love
  • Fairies
  • Green

It can even have a select pallet given, and the artwork must use only those colors as well as shading.

Most months will be easy... we'll have just a basic theme, but others will be more challenging.
  • Angry Centaurs
  • A scene with an Elf, a Vampire, and an Ogre
  • Dragon(s), using only this color pallet

The themes will be chosen by the admins and listed as a journal at the first of every month. Any member wishing to participate can submit 1 piece, either a new one, or an old one, as long as it meets the theme we set. You may submit your entry by submitting a URL link to it in the comments below and/or sending a note to the group.

April's challenge is:


Specifics: Starting off easy for our first challenge. We know it's still cold and frosty a lot of places, but we want to see the snow melting! We want fresh, lively colors and beautiful spring imagery.

Dates: Entries will be due midnight, MST. April 28th. This gives us the 29th to vote and announce the winner on the 30th.

Voting will be done using the Poll system. 1 entry per person.

Best of luck to you all!

Hey everyone, I have been hard at work for years on a fantasy world I am creating inspired by the works of Tolkien among others. I am brand new to the site and have already uploaded a few things and plan to release more content as it is finished. 

Come check me out if you're interested
