Becoming a Member

To submit art into the tolkien community, you must be a member of the group. Joining is easy. All you need to do is press the Join the Group at the top of the page, and send a request. You'll be automatically admitted.

Submitting Art Into the Gallery

Before you submit into the gallery, please read the Terms of Submission at… . You must be a member to submit art into the gallery. You can only submit TWO deviations a week, from Sunday to Saturday.

1. Click the gallery folder you wish to submit your artwork into.

2. In the gallery folder you will see 'Submit To This Folder' at the top right. Click that.

3. You can either upload a new deviation into the folder (and go through the normal process of submitting a deviation, which would go to both your personal gallery and the tolkien gallery), or you can upload a pre-existing deviation. If you are doing the latter, read step 4.

4. Click "Contribute An Existing Deviation" and find the one you wish to submit. Click "Ok", and, if it meets guidelines, your deviation will appear in the tolkien gallery once approved by moderators.

Hi all, 

I wanted to make a proposal to all illustrators who share their art here : would you be interested to contribute of a Tolkien fanbook?

to date, we are 6 French illustrators, but it will be perfect if we form a group of 10/15 illustrators, including from other countries.

it will be a fanbook designed like the ones you can find in amateur stands of any japan/comics convention. It will be printed and sold on pre-order. see go through a process of participatory financing.

we give priority to the principle of developing a fanbook by fans, for fans. however, and if we really are very lucky; if it is profitable, the amount that remains after the impressions will be given to all participating artists.

If you have any questions or you are interested, leave a message here or send a note to Daswhox. 

Thank you, happy halloween and have a good day. <3

Hi, Tolkien fans! I noticed I submitted a deviation to the wrong folder, sorry ^^'
Could you please take it off, so that I may re-submit?
