Group Info

This group is for fans of J.K Rowling's Harry Potter book series. But this is no ordinary Harry Potter Fan Art group.
At Epic Potter we only accept illustrations of purely epic canon Potter events.
This group is for you if you get a little tired of the numerous illustrations and fan arts of potter couples... and hardly anything else.
Also tired of seeing photomanips and stills and pencil drawings of stills from the potter films?
You won't find those here.
So go relax, read some Potter, and get inspired by the creatures, characters, and happenings of the wizarding world.

You heard it here first!
founded 1 year ago, Epic-Potter was the first group of it's kind - putting complete emphasis on fan art true to the Harry Potter books and J.K. Rowling's descriptions! All we set out to do was to stimulate your imagination. Anyone and everyone has seen Dan Radcliffe as Harry. But you are the only one who has ever seen your very own version of Harry, his friends, and everything else in the potterverse! So strive to bring your image to life on paper, and show us!

:bulletblue:Welcome to Epic-Potter! A group exclusively for original, quality, Harry Potter Illustrations!

:bulletblue: Please know that this group is first and foremost all about the Harry Potter books!

:bulletblue:To join Epic-Potter, simply request to do so.

:bulletblue:Before submitting, please read the following rules/mission statements/rants about potter-originality:


If you plan on submitting some Harry Potter art (or suggesting a group favorite) please realize that:

:bulletblue:WE DO NOT ACCEPT
-pieces strongly and obviously influenced by the movies
-movie stills
-drawings that are simply copied from movie stills
-drawings of the actors (or containing an obvious degree of the actors likenesses) from the HP films
-OC drawings
-Photography (this includes photos of the Wizarding World Park)
-Anime/Manga Style
-Sketch dumps
-Mature (sexual) Content. Gore is OKAY. Harry Potter is violent and gory and EPIC at times

Failure to comply with the above will result in the rejection of your submission.

:bulletblue:We ONLY accept:
-work which is deemed as high quality
To determine high quality we consider:
-artists' rendering skill
-originality! and creativity!
-work for which the artist submitting it can claim full responsibility for creating. We will not accept colored line-arts belonging to other artists. (Collabs are okay)

In terms of content:

-No couple art which is not mentioned in the books. Ex- Ron and Hermione's first kiss in DH would be acceptable. Random deviations of James and Lily getting it on are not. And yes, it is necessary for this to have its own bullet point. There's a lot of this couples-fluff floating around the internet...

-Must depict an event which clearly happened or was clearly implied in one of the Harry Potter books. Events must be canon.

-Must be a character portrait based on YOUR OWN INTERPRETATION of how you see that character. Pieces of/containing Characters which look too much like actors from the movies will be denied.

-Must simply be a high quality piece of art which portrays Harry Potter in accordance with the above and in a way which is deemed acceptable by the staff.

:bulletblue:This is a place for high quality, original pieces. We WANT to see what YOU see when you sit down and read Harry Potter (movies ASIDE). This is not a place for seeing who can copy a picture of Daniel Radcliffe most accurately. Deviations with too many or obvious similarities to the Harry Potter films will be denied. Don't be discouraged by this, but take it as a challenge. A challenge to use your imagination. You had to use it, afterall, before the movie adaptions came out. And I daresay I hope you read the books before then.

The bottom line is:
We ONLY accept high quality, original Potter illustrations.

:bulletblue:If your deviation is rejected know that we mean no offense; it is simply the purpose of this group to offer the best of the best in terms of Harry Potter fan art for your viewing enjoyment.

:bulletblue:If you submit art please realize that it may take a while for the admins to look over your submission. Therefore do not be discouraged if your submission is not voted on straight away - we are getting there! :)

:bulletblue:Check out our existing gallery or faves for examples of what type of pieces we are looking for.

And does the pottermore canon (what Rowling wrote there) seem like cannon to you? Or is this only book related? For example, if Jo wrote about Lupin and Tonks, the exact words they said, so could this be considered an approvable deviation to this group?

Love the concept of this group! I've always been bothered that the HP world was so much influenced by the films. I don't think the movies were bad, but I never was happy with most of the actors.

As sure as ghosts are transparent, I'm thankful for this kind request.
