(Gallery updates take place twice a month, please be patient after your submission.)

:bulletblack: 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.

:bulletblack: Submitting Art Into the Gallery (SUBMISSION RULES)

Before you submit into the gallery PLEASE READ THE TERMS OF SUBMISSION BY CLICKING HERE. 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.
(Please choose the relevant folder for your deviation)

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.

Good morning!

I'm posting to you because I am an artist who has recently gone out on his own to create fine, high-quality maps, which I absolutely love making. This new business is a dream of mine that I'm working very hard to continue! I recently launched my second Kickstarter campaign where I draw custom Tolkien-style maps of any location my backers wish, and I thought you folks might be interested :)

If you'd like to have a look, here are some links that would be useful:

- Kickstarter:

- Etsy:…?

- Facebook:

Cheers from an old and newly-reforming DA'er,

Joshua Peters.
