Rules! Updated 7/9/2017

The rules:

Art posted here belongs to the artist who created it. It cannot be re-posted without their express written permission anywhere. This group will never upload an artist's work anywhere without their permission, nor can this group give anyone else permission to do so. If you are joining this group with the intention of finding good art to post elsewhere, without the artists express permission or at the very, very least, linking back to the original deviation... please do not join. We want our members art to be respected and safe. It is not hard to contact an artist and ask for permission to share their art somewhere. It is not had to say "art by" and give the artist's name and a link back to where you originally found it.

:bulletblue: 1-Submission per week. This is to make sure you strongly consider what you submit and only submit your best work.
: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. Work In Progress pieces are discouraged.

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 any other media. We'll allow anything DeviantArt allows into this folder, but only this folder. Al mature art must be marked as such, and have the content blocker on that DeviantArt requires, and must not, in any way, feature children (anyone under 18 years of age) or any instance of rape. This is a huge deal for us, opening a Mature Art folder and easing up on the rules, please don't break that trust.


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











Hello members!

I hope you all are having a great summer! I'm sorry I've been away for so long, as I know it's made some things hard.

I want to quickly fill everyone in on what's been going on with the group, as I know there has been some confusion, annoyance, and even some anger at the folders becoming full, and our admin staff being unable to do much about it.

Let me start by saying this: It was my fault.

100% fully and completely my fault, and for that I am deeply sorry. My fellow co-owners have been having less and less time, so I got some amazing volunteer Knights to come along and help out. For a while, this was a beautiful arrangement where submissions were being approved rapidly, we had some very motivated staff, and all was well. . . until I left. I bailed, I abandoned the group in the worst way possible. . . I broke one of my own rules and vanished, not telling anyone why. What this meant was that my trusted staff was in the dark, and they were managing until folders filled up. . . you see, only co-owners and the owner had the ability to open more folders. This left a lot of hard working and well intentioned people scrambling for anything they could possibly do, and having no idea why I told them I'd be around and suddenly wasn't. So please understand, they honestly love this group an were doing well beyond their requirements to try and keep it active for you guys, while essentially having their hands tied behind their back.

The reason is short, simple, childish . . . I got scared, and I hid. It's a long story, and my family knows about it, as do some very close friends, but over all I just don't want to get into it. The short version is this: I've been having a lot of medical tests done and the results so far is that I'm not going to get better and my time on earth may be limited. I really, honestly do not want to get more into it than that except to say it is from a cardiac condition I was born with, and we're getting more testing done to try and change the diagnosis.

So that's it, really. I got some bad news, I panicked, I shut down and I abandoned this group. I abandoned my friends, my admin team, and all of you depending on me. . . I am terribly sorry for that. It was not a professional way of handling things, or a mature way. At the very least I could have told someone here what was going on and given them the ability to actually take care of the group, and I didn't. So the problems we have been having are all my fault, I am so sorry to say. The original creator of this group, Opal, entrusted it to me, and I let everyone down.  For all that and more, I apologize and promise that I will do better! We know this group is great, and I have plans in the works to make it even better.

We had some real heroes! And these heroes have been upgraded to co-owner status! Because of :iconneogenki: this group has survived. The amazing amount of effort they put into this group is awe inspiring, and something we all should applaud them for a the unsung hero of this story! They refused to let the group down, worked on approving and denying submissions, trying to get ideas and activities going behind the scenes. . . they really worked their butt off.
:iconlisa22882: is our most active admin as far as submissions go. Approve/deny, she is on the ball with it! Because of that, they both have been promoted to co-owners! A position they both have proven time and time again they not only want, but they deserve! They have been running this place anyway and have done the work of multiple admins all on their own! A huge round of applause and congratulations to them for their amazing work, service, dedication and drive!
