Group Info

Here at Original Fantasy we aim to bring artists and writers alike together through the fantasy worlds they have created by their writings and artwork. This can be forms of comics / graphic novels, illustrations, original characters, role play, written etc. We stress that all work is ORIGINAL Its fine to have bases in common fantasy grounds but no fan work, we promote fantasy worlds and realms created purely from your own imagination not others.
All mediums and ages are welcome as long as they abide by the rules and enjoy themselves.

Hiyo Fantasy lovers! We have been getting many new followers so welcome ^^

Now I know everyone is eager to submit their work into groups so that more people get to see it, and I want everyone to get the opportunity to see what you have for us, but please be conscious that the folders are there for easy access for anyone who wants to browse our group, as well as there is a limit to how much the folders can hold, so we like to keep them organized. That being said, please submit your works to the correct folder and remember we are original fantasy, no fanart of copyrighted material.

Featured Work - Featured work is for the best of the best that you wish to show us that also happens to be original fantasy in mind. We would love to showcase your work and love of fantasy here.

Original Characters - Original Characters is for specifically character work. We normally accept illustrations so long as the subject is in fact an original character. Please only submit the work you wish to showcase and introduce your original characters we do love to see them :)

References - References is for character sheets, how tos, tutorials, guides and any other work that you have made for well reference. We encourage people to show us their tips tricks and of course tell us more about your fantasy characters.

Illustrations - Illustrations are for your gorgeous paintings of fantasy oriented scenes, settings, or lore. Basically this image alone can illustrate a story. Examples are like an epic battle with a dragon or a fierce war with wizards, perhaps a painting of a countess or a dramatic castle in a storm! The limit of course is your imagination. We would love to see your story in one picture.

Dragons - Pretty self explanatory we love dragons here. If you wonder weather your character of a dragon goes here or in the character folder, that is entirely up to you, for we do accept that creatures are just as much characters as anything humanoid. This folder merely showcases and celebrates dragons.

Graphic Novels - This one is very popular, and we love graphic novels! Please if you have a graphic novel you are working on and would like to submit to us, even in parts and single pages put them all in this folder. I will advise linking in your comic pages to the other pages for easier time reading through them all.

Writing - It may not have as many pictures, but is none the less a wonderful media for expressing fantasy. You have an original fantasy themed story you'd like to share? Please do! Much like graphic novels, linking between parts/chapters if it is an ongoing story is much appreciated!

Maps - What is a great fantasy story/character/illustration without a great fantasy world or setting? Do you favor yourself an imaginary cartographer? You enjoy creating the landscape and mapping out a world in your head? We love seeing them here!

Original O.C. Fanart - This one has confused many so I will do my best as to explain. Everyone loves their own original characters, well this folder is for those that love another person's original characters. This is strictly for unpublished or copyrighted original characters. Things that are accepted in this folder include commission work (with the owner's permission of course) images you make because you are a fan of the artist and their work or gifts/awards. The premise is to showcase and celebrate other OCs outside of your own that are original.

Creature Feature - Much like dragons, we do love all other fantasy creatures! If you love them too or create your very own set of fantasy creatures please share them here! Also much like the dragons rather to post them here or in the Original Character or Illustration folder that is entirely up to you. If you prefer to showcase them as a character or part of an illustration they fit perfectly well there as well, however if you would like to showcase a creature you fancy for the mere sake of it being a creature it fits wonderfully here.

Animations - If you are good at animating and happen to have some animated pieces fantasy in nature they go right here. Animation is a very time consuming project so we would love to see what you have come up with :D

Commission Info - We know that many of you need work, and we are happy to showcase those who are available for commission. If you have a commission information image or text oriented deviation please put them here, this way if someone is interested in purchasing they can go through everyone who is available. Or if they can't buy right now, and can't remember your name or who it was that they saw with the commission information that they fancied they can always come back to this folder.

Unclassified - Finally this folder, this is the end all be all doesn't fit in any of the available folder MISC folder. Not sure where your image best fits? Well you can put it here, it may get moved if one of our admins feels it fits better in one of the other folders, but if nothing else it can go here.

Any other folders I haven't gone over are either full or from a competition that is no longer in affect. Such folders will be clearly labeled and closed off so that deviations don't accidentally end up in them.

I hope this journal update has been helpful, if you have any questions you can always send it to us and we will get to you with an answer as soon as we can. I will be putting. Thank you for reading and have fun!

Hey all! I don't know if this is the best place to ask, but does anyone have any tips for making custom maps?
Orr8571 Featured By Owner May 27, 2017  Hobbyist Writer
Hello Mrdodobird!

The first thing I'd recommend is to look around for tutorials. Depending on the scale of map you want to make (satellite style atlas? continental or regional scale? One settlement and its environs? A single building/dungeon/complex?), there'll be various methods people have discovered out there.

Personally, I hashed something out from a tutorial for starfields, in which I mashed and overlayed multiple stock textures from the internet to create a combination heightmap and satellite-imagery texture. The map itself i worked out by toying with this map to identify coasts, woodland and mountain.

There's also tools out there, like Inkarnate, which can do the map-building for you. Have a look around the web and see what takes your fancy.

What happened to the journal post about dA having the right to sell your artwork without your permission?
Drizzerey Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2016  Professional General Artist… here is a link to the agreements in question, #3 & 4 where the ones worded pretty badly but #5 and following essentially clear those two up and/or counter them leaving agreements with 3rd parties between DA, the artist and the 3rd party in question. 
Hestia-Edwards Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
Thank you for the reply. It does look like dA will ask permission before selling the artwork.

Good to know, thank you. :)
