The purpose of this group is to display family-friendly HP fan art that all ages can view. So please read and follow these rules if you'd like to submit an artwork or fave.
First off, you must be a member in order to submit your artwork but you are allowed to submit a favorite without membership
Artwork that is NOT accepted:
Any mature artwork (i.e anything you would need a mature/warning filter on and would be inappropriate for kids under 18)
Any offending/hating art
Artwork that IS accepted:
ALL types of art styles (such as digital/traditional art, cosplays, literature, crafts, photography, etc!)
Art relating to Harry Potter
Couples are allowed but they must be guyxgirl and appropriate
Submission: You should submit your artwork in the gallery folder it corresponds to. So,
Featured: You can't submit artwork to the Featured folder. I'll periodically move your submitted art to the featured folder so that it can have a chance to be on the front page! While this group is still new, all art with be both in the featured folder as well as your chosen category folder.
The Trio Era: If your artwork portrays any of the Trio (Harry, Ron or Hermione) and any characters that lived in their school lifetime. (ex: Neville, Ginny, Weasley Twins, Luna, etc.)
The Marauders Era:For James, Sirius, Remus and Wormtail (either together or individually), and any characters that lived in their school time. (ex: Severus, Regulus, Lily Evans, the Black sisters, etc)
Next Generation: James Sirius , Albus Severus, Lily Luna, Hugo, Rose, Scorpius, Teddy Lupin, Victiore, etc.
Hogwarts: This is for Hogwarts Professors and ghosts (ex. Hagrid, McGonagall, Nearly Headless Nick, etc.)
Order of the Phoenix: This is for members who are part of the Order of the Phoenix in both Wizarding Wars, and who don't fit into the other folders. These members include (but are not limited to!) Tonks, Mad eye, Dung, Frank and Alice Longbottom,etc.
Death Eaters: For both 'current' and defected members such as Bellatrix, Lucius Malfoy, Regulus Black, etc.
Miscellaneous: Where everything else goes! This includes objects (Horcruxes, the Hallows), places (Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, Knockturn Alley), stamps, portraits of the actors, crossovers and au's (if they are still PG), cosplay of any kind, etc.
Fantastic Beasts: This is where any fanart of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them including any magical creatures seen in the film and the Potter movies.
I know that the different categories can be confusing because some characters could belong in more than one category. So a helpful tip would be to figure out how your art portrays the character (for ex. James could belong in both Marauders and OotP. If your fan art shows him as a teen or in Hogwarts robes he would go in 'The Marauders' but if it shows him in a battle, he would go in 'Order of the Phoenix').
I know a lot of people will still have questions on where to submit their artwork so please just link your work in the comments and I'll let you know where to submit it!
Don't be offended if your art isn't accepted. It is probably because it doesn't meet the guidelines so make sure you read and understand them before submitting.
If you have any questions feel free to ask!
I know this was long so thanks for taking the time to read this
