Fantasy-Paradise Membership Guidelines

Welcome to Fantasy-Paradise. Our group is a fantasy based art group. Only art containing fantasy, Steam Punk, or Sci-Fi themed elements will be accepted. We accept all mediums including: photo manipulation, digital painting, mixed media, traditional art, and literature. We would like to welcome new members and watchers as we continue to grow. This Group does not belong to just one person or an elite few. It belongs to all our members equally. Everyone has a say in how the group is run, what changes are made, and can submit announcements or contests for the blog. We do not participate in the snobby, elitist mentality. We welcome and support each other and our new members.

~*~ Membership Guidelines ~*~

:bulletpurple: Feel free to suggest artworks by other artists to the group.

~*~ Submission Guidelines ~*~

:bulletpurple: Members will be allowed to submit 10 pieces per folder, per day until this becomes too much for the inbox to handle. (Let me know when it does and I will change the permissions.)

:bulletpurple: All submissions must contain a fantasy, steam punk, or science fiction elements or themes.

:bulletpurple: Be sure to submit your artwork to the appropriate folder. Art submitted to the wrong folder will be declined. (You will be able to resubmit the artwork to the correct folder after a decline.) If you have questions about which folder you should submit to, visit the folder first and read the descriptions on the left hand side of the folder gallery.

:bulletpurple: All submissions must have their stock sources properly credited! Failure to credit your stock resources will result in the art being declined.

FAQ #809: What are deviantART's stock image guidelines?

FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

FAQ #8: What are violations of the deviantART copyright policy?

:bulletpurple: Artworks containing celebrities will be declined. Google is NOT a valid stock resource. Check out the Stock FAQ above if you have questions about what is and what is not stock.

:bulletpurple: When submitting to the Fantasy Stock Folder be sure that what you are submitting is available as stock for others to use. It must be listed in the :devart: Stocks and Resources section.

:bulletpurple: Tasteful, mild, artistic nudity is acceptable. It must be properly filtered and will be checked before it is accepted. Pornographic art will be immediately declined.

:bulletpurple: Send us your best work! No unfinished or partially drawn pieces will be accepted.

:bulletpurple: If you are submitting Literature the same rules apply as for the art, especially when it comes to eroticism. Nothing overly graphic or pornographic will be accepted.

:bulletpurple: If art and/or stock theft is discovered the stolen work will be reported to :devart: and the original artist. Don’t do it! Make sure that it is your own, original art. Make sure your art follows all legal and ethical guidelines by law and :devart: guidelines. Fantasy-Paradise and its administrators are not responsible for any infringements and expect members to be honest when submitting their art.

I Wish....

Sun Jan 25, 2015, 6:27 PM

Every now and then we find ourselves wishing for things. Here are a few thoughts and wishes that have crossed my mind regarding the Stock & Resources gallery.

- I wish that really awesome photograph/line art/fractal/whatever was listed as Stock & Resources. The permissions SAY people can use it, but it's not listed as stock. If it were, I'd totally DD blah blah blah, but I can't. It's NOT LISTED AS STOCK! :facepalm:

- I wish I'd get more DD suggestions. I always hear people saying "Oh this should get a DD" or "Oh I totally thought about suggesting this!" or "OMG You're such a great stock provider I wonder why you don't get much exposure, blah blah blah" so... WHY HAVEN'T YOU SUGGESTED IT?! I can't consider it if I don't see it 'cause it never got suggested. :stare: It's so easy. Go to my page. Send me a note. Title it "DD Suggestion." Include the thumb or link to the image you want to suggest. Say, "Yo, Cheryl, I'd like to suggest blah blah blah for a DD and this is why." EASY PEASY! :D You'd think that I get TONS of suggestions, but no. I get around 5 a month. No joke. The vast majority of the DDs I feature are ones that I hunt down myself.

- I wish more people would follow FAQ #809: What are deviantART's stock image guidelines? Only distribute the stuff you have created yourself or have the necessary permissions to redistribute. If you don't follow that faq, you are SOL on a DD feature from me, IMHO personally.

-  I wish people would stop thinking Daily Deviations are an "award" that they "win" when we "give" them to you. Stop hanging your self worth as an artist on a 24 hr feature. It's a feature! It's fun and it's great. I love featuring them. Having one or not doesn't define you as an artist or a person.

- I wish the drama llamas would get put out to pasture and the clique in-fighting would stop. It's been fairly decent lately, but seriously.. Stick together and encourage each other, don't start lists of shame that name people that might be making mistakes. They might not know any better because they're new. Don't set a bad example by acting like a bratty elementary school kid by saying "OoOooo such and such is doing this" in your journal. Go help them, don't make walls of shame or flaming journals of hate calling for the pitch forks and torches. If they're doing something wrong, TEACH THEM HOW TO DO IT RIGHT, not how to be a Class A Jerkface.

- I wish we could have a S&R chat event soon. It would be great to get everyone together and talking. We are a community, not competitors.

- I wish some of the stocks out there wouldn't be so heavily post processed. Leave a little room for the artists to work with them and create their own design. It's too limiting for the artists in my opinion.

That's about all I have for now. There's probably more, and this is entirely my own personal opinions and not a reflection of any official shenanigans.
