Welcome Back.
News? Updates? Nonsense?


The usual stuff:

Submission Guidelines:

Please submit all art to the Featured folder. We will sort through the submissions and move them accordingly.

Please remember that this is a group for a certain type of art: Dark/Macabre, Fantasy, Surrealism, and any other art that would be considered 'Odd'. We are not a warehouse for Nature art (unless the scene adheres to the guidelines) or puppy photos or anything else that clearly would not fit in our group.

Some Guidelines on permissible themes:

No straight-out pornography.

No images of the abuse of children and/ or animals.

This is basically the limits.
If you have any issues or questions regarding any rejected submissions then note the group and I will answer them personally.

NOTE: On Favorites Submissions...
Just a little common sense: Do not suggest your own work to the Favourites gallery. It will be rejected and you will be spanked :iconsmackdatplz:
