Hi.

I have noticed that people make a few, typical mistakes when they submit works into my group. I will list them and explain how to fix them.

a) works aren't in Fantasy section on Deviantart. I mean section you choose from categories when you first submit your work to Deviantart. Even if you choose a proper folder in my group, I won't accept your work, if it's not in Fantasy. Instead, I report such works so admins relocate them. Sorry folks, I am anal about order on this site and I am trying my best to fix the mess. So, if your work gets declined, be sure about categories. Both on Deviantart and in my group. Categories on DA and folders in groups are two separate matters.

b) fanart that is not in Fanart section on Deviantart. As above, I report all fanart that is not submitted into Fanart. Initial categories are important,without them or with them messed up by people there's a mess on Deviantart. So, be sure all your fanart is in Fanart before you submit it here. It's nothing personal, I just want people to understand why Deviantart has sections.

c) unfinished works, scraps (for example: badly photographed works, uncropped works), bad quality works. They won't be accepted here, because it's not Scraps section. I report all such works so they are moved to Scraps. I understand that not everyone has a scanner, but remember to do your best to enhance your works in Photoshop, Gimp etc. Just cropping them so they don't have any unnecessary borders (like a carpet or a wall you took a photo on) gives a lot of positive vibes. You can take a good shot with a bad mobile camera, just do it when it's a bright day.

d) commissions. Some of you still submit these into regular folders where they won't be accepted. Just remember to submit all commissions into one folder and they will get into FD.

I hope it helps. Ask me in case of more questions.

About this group and its rules.



Admin | What can't be uploaded | What can be uploaded | Submissions | Affiliations | Joining and following |  Featured | Other rules |  Category guide 

It's a group for people who are fed up with other groups that aren't really fantasy groups. Many so called fantasy groups here, on DA, accepts, for example, science-fiction that IS NOT fantasy. FD is a pure fantasy group. I don't accept anything that is not fantasy (but I accept horror-themed works that have elements of fantasy). I will also not accept any forms of manga.
Rules are simple, they are in a form of points, so you don't have to read a long texts. But read them, before you join. It will prevent your works from being declined.

We can communicate in Polish in English. Also, I understand some Danish.

WARNING. If you don't like the rules, or if you don't have time/are too lazy to read them, just leave and find another group. If you don't have time to read the rules, don't ask me why I declined your work. I won't have wars and fights with people who don't accept them. Those who make a rant, will be blocked. Members who make a rant, will be kicked out of this group. This is why I highly recommend reading all rules.

I decline something like 60% of submitted works ONLY because of wrong folder. So, submit properly. Usually it's not a matter of something else.



Have a nice time!

Hello there I submitted a drawing to fan art today philipharvey.deviantart.com/ar… as you say in the previous reply "if you draw a character who belongs to myths/fairytales/etc., it's a fanart" do you not see it as a fan art? or would it go in other humanoids? I'm not sure :) If you hate it or something that's fine. Nice group you have here though.

Hi. I declined it even if you submitted it to Fanart, because it's in wrong category on Deviantart. It must be in Fanart section. If you change it, I will accept your work into my group.

Greets,
A.

Hi ! I submitted this drawing blob-du-chaos.deviantart.com/a… to the "villain" folder (she can be considered, in many versions of the legend, as Arthur's nemesis...), and it has been declined. So, in which folder should I submit it, please ?

Well, I declined it because if you draw a character who belongs to myths/fairytales/etc., it's a fanart. Unfortunately, this drawing is not in fanart section, so I am keeping to decline it. ou may agree with me or not, but I will accept it if you fix the category. 

This is nothing personal. I am just very anal about categories.

Witches and Wizard ? (But how do you do when a character is at the same time a villain and a wizard ? :D)

Hello. I have some question. I put Drizzt and Guenhwyvar in the elves (there is smal elf under the tree. Ok, I was wrong) and in the fanart folder (becouse it's a fanart for the book) but it was declined again. So... Maybe I must put it in Fantasy sceneries? Or it's just something wrong with my art? Thank you.

Yeah, I declined it twice. It's in Fanart category, but in your description you have to include what's it from. I don't know the characters, so I have to know, what's their source. 
This is nothing personal, I just care about categories and details. Of course, when you update your AC, I will normally accept it into Fanart folder.
