Just a quick run-down of all the basics. You don’t need to read this, but it’s here for reference.
The rules are basically the same as deviantART’s general rules. In short: no art theft, no explicit material without a content warning, be nice – that sort of thing. Other than that, there’s not much else.
The main thing to remember is that the art has to have something to do with Bosmer. That’s pretty much the only thing you have to remember, and if your submission is declined it’s probably because we can’t see what it has to do with Bosmer. If we’re mistaken, though, let us know. So far, there is no limit to how many deviations you can submit to the group.
Please remember to submit your work to the correct folder! Deviations submitted to the wrong folder will be declined. Just to clear things up, we’ve included requirements for each folder below, so if you’re not sure where a submission should go, this might help.
Featured: only admins can submit to this folder. Here we’ll put particularly good pieces of work from each of the other folders.
Original Characters: pretty simple, here you submit images of your original characters – this doesn’t have to be a character you’ve played as in one of the games though. Any Wood Elf OC of yours goes into this folder, as well as any fan art you’ve done of other people’s OCs.
NPCs: any fan art of any non-player Bosmer character from any of the Elder Scrolls games goes in here.
Literature: as the title suggests, this is where all your literature deviations go. As long as there are some Bosmer characters in there, that’s fine.
Valenwood: any art you’ve done of Valenwood goes in here. Since there’s no real visual references for it yet, feel free to be as creative as you like.
Cartoons and Comics: any comics, animations, and that sort of thing go in here.
NSFW: for those who don’t know, this stands for ‘not safe for work’. So, any deviations with graphic nudity or sexy-times in them goes into this folder. The reason there’s a separate folder is so the explicit art is filtered out, so those browsing can avoid it if they wish, especially if they're browsing at work, school, or in public.
Couples and Romance: unlike the above folder, any romance-related art that isn’t explicit goes in here. This can be between anyone, OCs or NPCs, crack or canon.
Cosplay: photos from any cosplay you’ve done as Bosmer should be submitted here.
Memes: memes you’ve filled in with Bosmer characters go in here.
*Screenshots have been disallowed due to excessive submission, particularly of sex / pornography based mods.
If you are not sure which folder something should go in even after looking through this, then feel free to ask us.
