Rules and Such (Group FAQ)


• This group is for artists and illustrators who do work specifically for TABLETOP roleplaying games, such as Dungeons & Dragons. Anyone may join, but we ask that you only do so if you plan on contributing qualifying work, otherwise you should simply click "+Watch" above.

Submitting Art
• All art submitted by members will be reviewed for qualification as TABLETOP/PEN & PAPER RPG art. All art MUST be labeled as relating to a tabletop RPG or otherwise be obviously related to a tabletop RPG. Art this is not labeled will be questioned before being allowed in the group. If you do not respond to the question, the art will not appear in the group. Art that is obviously not RPG-related will be rejected. Note that characters from video game RPGs, including MMOs, no matter how awesome, are outside this group's focus, so any such submission will be rejected!

•This group is for RPG illustration only. We do not accept maps (save for those of illustrational quality), diagrams, graphic design, three-dimensional art (sculptures, painted miniatures, etc.), photography, or written work (unless accompanied by an illustration). We will accept artistic showcases and contest announcements, as long as they are illustration and RPG-related.

• Please post your art to the appropriate gallery, as follows:

-Featured: this gallery is for admin use only and houses our favorite pieces from the other galleries. You cannot post to this gallery.

-Personal RPG Art: for art created for personal use of for private commission, regardless of genre.

-Published RPG Art: for art created for commercial use or publication in an RPG book or product. Each folder covers a specific speculative genre. Note that despite the name, the work in question doesn't actually have to have been published in order to qualify for these folders, only that it has to have been specifically commissioned by an RPG publisher for the express purpose of publication in an RPG product.

-Showcases and Contests: this folder is for the promotion of RPG-related showcases and contests held elsewhere on dA, usually by our Affiliate groups.

-Favorites Collection: favorites are pieces that, for whatever reason, did not get artist permission to be posted in the main galleries. You should not post any work into these galleries.

• Group administrators retain the right to move your submission after posting if we do not believe it was correctly placed. Placement of art will NOT affect the acceptance or denial of your submission.

• Submissions to any gallery are limited to 5/month.

•Although we will accept tasteful nudity, erotic art is not permitted. The management reserves the right to determine what is "erotic" and what is not.

• We reserve the right to delete any art, refuse any submission, or remove any member at our discretion.

Greetings, Programs!  I hope you will excuse this bit of blatant self-promotion, but I wanted to let my RPGIlloShow fans know that I have opened a shop on, where you can find awesome D&D-related t-shirts of my own design, along with D&D bookmarks, and my 2009, 2011, 2012, and 2013 sketchbooks (my 2010 sketchbook, Out of the Mists, is sold out)!  I have limited supplies of everything, and once they're gone, they're likely gone forever!  So get yours while you can!  And for a limited time, every t-shirt order comes with a free matching bookmark, autographed by the artist (hey, that's me!).

Please drop by and take a look.  You can find my shop, The Fantastic Gallery, here:…

Here's a sampling of the art featured on the shirts and bookmarks!

Hello Talon,

My husband, some friends and I have published an rpg called A'Kyria. I set up the Deviant Art page to promote our game and its art. I am wondering if my illustrations would qualify for your group even though it is not a mainstream rpg. All of the art (except sketches) have been published (or will be published) in the rule book or in our accompanying software adventures (pods).

As long as the art is a) related to a tabletop, traditional pen-and-paper RPG, and not a video game or any other kind of media, it's eligible for this group.  The popularity of the game is not a consideration.  If the art was published (or created specifically for the intent to be published), then it goes in the published folder according to its genre.  If it was created for fun or on private commission, it goes in the Personal gallery.

Can you recommend a map-maker app that's free and safe to download?
I'm trying to create the setting for my story, and as you can see…
I need help.

Unfortunately, no.  I'm a MAC guy and there's not a lot of development along those line for the MAC OS.
