:bulletblack:  We are a group dedicated to hosting the finest quality fan art.

:bulletblack:  Therefore, all submissions must adhere to strict standards.

:bulletblack:  To understand our standards all you have to do is look at the artworks featured on the homepage.

:bulletblack:  Artworks not meeting those standards will be declined, no exceptions.

:bulletblack:  We are striving to be the best fan art group on deviantART, so please be understanding if we don't accept your work. Thank you for understanding.


Ok, Please Read This...

Welcome to The-Fanart-Society!

:bulletyellow: Fan art can be so under-appreciated because we make art of our favourite characters in all types of media. But this is art, and we are proud to show it off!

:bulletyellow: Please, peruse our galleries before you submit your art, as this is the best example of our standards. We will only post quality work. Our motto, so to speak, quality is better than quantity.

:bulletyellow: What is fan art? Fan art is art based on somebody else's copyrighted characters. If you create art for Mass Effect then that is fan art. But, if you create an original character that you put in the Mass Effect universe then that is not fan art, but your own original character, and we don't host those works.

:bulletyellow: Please post to the submissions folder, please; and no photos or photomanipulations. Also, no artworks with excessive writing on them.

:bulletyellow: Be respectful to others, and, please, no flames, or hate speech!

Our Team

Hello, I'm :iconnamelesssaint: and I'm the founder of this group. When I first saw this group I could see such potential for it, and I hope to be a good guardian and steward of it, and to see that is flourishes.

As you can see, I've made some changes.  I have not made these changes to hurt the prior members of this group, because I value your input, and the art that you have contributed.  All I hope to do is to create a new standard for us, and to seek out fan art that is completely wonderful to look at.  

I have other groups, as well, please take a look and see. :iconimaginativeworlds: :iconparaosities: :iconuniversalartgroup:

So, please bear with me as I strive to create the best fan art group on dA.  And, if you can give me suggestions please do, as I am always open to new ideas.

Our team-mates:

:iconorbitalwings::iconelsaaaa: :iconjemleigh: :iconmikomilktea: :iconthreshthesky:

Our Standards

Okay, please read this: We are NOT :iconfanartsociety:, our standards are higher.  And, nor are we :iconqualityfanart:, our standards are even HIGHER.  So with this simple idea and knowledge, please see that your submissions do adhere to the strict quality that this group has maintained since I took it over.  Trust me, I have no desire to be a bitch about this.  But I will decline your work if it doesn't meet those standards.  

Note as 5/4/2016:  We are still being asked to host works that are not up to our standards.  So I am asking, again, please look in our galleries before you suggest your work.  Or, better still, just look at the art featured on the homepage itself.  If your work is not of equal par it will be declined.  It will not be accepted. Period.

And, please, don't take it personally.  Just think that this group maybe isn't for you, and that's okay.  We are not about numbers here, nor are we going to appeal to everyone.  Some of you are here because you enjoy the work that we host and some of you are here with the hopes that we will host your work.  I welcome all members who want to enjoy quality fan art.  But, just because you are a member, doesn't mean that we will automatically accept your art.  I'm sorry if this bothers you or makes you mad.  This is not my intention.  I just want to be completely honest.  But if you decide to leave there will be no hard feelings.  As I stated, maybe we aren't the group you are looking for.

Compromising Our Standards

This has been quite the problem lately and I don't like it--I don't like it at all.  As you may have noticed, the newest fan art on dA as of the past few months has been a bit lacking. I don't say this to offend anyone; I'm just stating a fact.  I have reacted to this fact in a way that doesn't make me happy.  I've been compromising our standards and have been accepting work I normally would just decline, and you all know I hate the process of declining work (it makes me feel bad on the inside as I'm sure it does to the one I have declined).  Right now I have at least 10 pages of submitted deviations that are not up to the standards I try to uphold, and so I'm stuck with having to decline them.  I'm also going to temporarily close the submissions folder until I can get this mess straightened out. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE MY POINT CLEARER, BUT THIS: WORK THAT DOESN'T MEET OUR STANDARDS WILL BE DECLINED AS OF NOW.  This process might take awhile as I seem to be the only active administrator for this group.  The others have, well, moved on, I guess.

Remember, no OCs, and no artwork with writing on it, like watermarks, yours or dAs. And please, no photographs, photomanipulations, or advertisements.

A Big Thank You!

We have been totally blessed to have had the the help of the amazing :iconperfixel: in creating the new look for this group.  I couldn't be more pleased than I am now for the changes that were made.

Go on and take a look at our new gallery folders, they are amazing!

And our favourites folders look just as good, as does the whole group.

We are indebted to this incredible person for their hard work and dedication, don't you think?
