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.

TWO IMPORTANT HINTS THAT IT IS PRIMITIVE FANTASY:

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.

GENERAL RULES:

* 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.
* No material that is racist, depicting rape, or otherwise offensive.
* Please submit art to the correct folder.

So I am sure you have all noticed that I am not keeping up on this group like I used to.  There are a number of ways in which my life has been changing that account for this.  Lately, I have been getting ready to move across the country, and I will embark on this journey in less than two days.

Unfortunately, I do not foresee that I will be resuming the same level of activity in this group that I had before.  In order to keep this group alive, I will need someone to volunteer as an admin.  

Please step forward if you are interested.  Once I have moved I will post another entry restating the vision and purpose of this group, which any new admin will be expected to uphold.  I hope that someone is willing to take on this role.

And I am sorry that I have not been more communicative lately.

=========UPDATE==================

To restate the vision and purpose of the group:

Please see the Group Info if you need to be reminded of what Primitive Fantasy is.  I have to reject off-topic submissions all the time.  Off-topic ones actually outnumber on-topic ones.

Primitive-Fantasy is DeviantArt's first group about jungle, tribal, and prehistoric-themed art.  Many others have popped up since this group's creation, but this one still differs from the others in important ways.  For one, we have a Crafts folder.  We also have a Non-Human folder for anthro characters and centaurs.

This group differs from most other jungle groups in that it is NOT a pin-up or sexually-themed group.  "Sexy" looking characters are okay as long as they are realistically proportioned and not depicted in a risque manner.  Tasteful artistic nudity is okay.  Playboy type stuff is not.

Also unlike most jungle-themed groups, we do not allow art that is demeaning to women, such as bondage, torture, or peril art, or anything with Kaa.  Remember that even if you think it is sexy to see women in danger, the other half of the population thinks it is offensive.

Please let me know if you have any questions, but also be aware that I will be in transit for about a week.  Thanks!
