Welcome Fantasy Fans

I would participate in a contest for a new journal design if... 

76 deviants said I knew how to code
29 deviants said I had the time
23 deviants said Dragons
5 deviants said There was a Feature prize
4 deviants said There was a cash prize
1 deviant said I don't need a reason, I love making journal and designs


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 have been wondering why there has been a really high number of people submitting into the wrong folder, mostly it has been looking to me that people were wrongly trying to submit to the mature and 3D art folders. I have been kindly informed that it is being caused by a bug on DA.

Please read this jounral by another group for further infomation: digital-art-fantasy.deviantart…

To all those people who have been affected by the bug, and have been turned down because of this I am very sorry this has happened to you. So if you work was turned down, and you think you work had been submitted into the right folder this is probably why. I am very sorry about this, and unfortunately there is very little we can do about this because it is a problem with DA. We honestly have no way of knowing if you have submitted this into the right folder.

Now I am going to look into this, and see if DA are aware of this problem, if they are not I will contact them about it, since I am a beta tester. I am guessing they do probably know about it, and I do very much hope DA fixes this blog soon, and as the other journal asks. If you do know of any group that is having the same problem please let them know this is this cause.

I have Dark Art but not sure how to join ? If possible.

I am sorry, you are not the only one having problems, but none of the admins that actually have the power to fix it are about! I can't check to see if the group settings are alright. I don't even have the power to submit journals just accept or declined submissions! Plus I am not sure if one of the folders is actually full?

I have tried to contact the admins, but with no success! I am very sorry about this.

I made a request to join the group, but it has not been seen. Help!!! :lol:
karla-chan Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The join request should be automatic, please try again and if it doesn't work please try contacting the group again. Sadly I personally don't have access to the admin area so I can;t double check the group setting. However in my message feed I can see we have had new members.

Obviously not, I'm still not part of the group that I see. :-(
