Group Info -- What's On-Topic

Primitive Fantasy is imaginative artwork with a theme focusing on tribal, jungle, or prehistoric settings. It is NOT the same thing as traditional fantasy. Traditional fantasy is what you see in things like Lord of the Rings, Dungeons and Dragons, and World of Warcraft. For Primitive Fantasy, think Tarzan, Clan of the Cave Bear, and Shanna the She-Devil.


1. CLOTHING: Primitive characters wear animal skins, loincloths, leaves, feathers, beads, body paint, or anything you can make yourself when living in the woods; and some go naked. (Naked characters need other attributes such as spears, warpaint, or a proper background.) Primitive characters do NOT wear modern clothes, metal armor, or anything that would require spinning-wheel technology in order to make.

2. BACKGROUNDS: Not all pictures need to have a background, but backgrounds can confirm or disprove that the character belongs in Primitive Fantasy. Appropriate backgrounds are outdoors, including jungles, forests, caves, grasslands, and small huts. NO architecture, unless it is in ruins.

Absolutely off-topic: Modern-day scenes, futuristic scenes, cities, large-scale civilizations (including the Greeks, Egyptians, and Aztecs), advanced technology, machines, robots, steampunk, and large amounts of metal.


* Art must be clearly on-topic (see above).
* Fantasy characters and cultures only; no non-fantasy art of people from real cultures.
* Nudity is allowed, but it must be tasteful. No smut.
* Please put some effort into your art. It must look complete.
* Make sure the presentation is good. No lined paper, blurry photos, etc.
* No material that is racist, depicting rape, or otherwise offensive.
* Please submit art to the correct folder.

Hello, everyone!

Sorry I didn't get a chance to introduce myself earlier! I'm BigD1987, I live in the Chicago area, and I'm a writer currently looking for a bigger opportunity in journalism. You may also know me as the creator of the "Julie the Jungle Girl" series, which I'm currently renaming "Greystoke Adventures", but whatever. I'd like to thank you all for contributing to the group, and to SkyJaguar for giving me the opportunity to help run the group and keep it going.

Now that my introduction is out of the way, I just have a couple questions for anyone who wants to answer: What do you like about the idea of the "Primitive Fantasy" genre, how does it appeal to you and what got you interested in it?

Again, thanks and it's a pleasure to meet all of you!

Thanks for the add!

I make little creations inspired by Nature and her Spirit (in particular Woods, Forests and Mountains), from Forest Animals and other Creatures and from Pagan and ancestral traditions.
 I'm glad to join this group!
