You heard it here first!
founded 5 year ago by RavenclawRadiance, 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!
Welcome to Epic-Potter! A group exclusively for original, quality, Harry Potter Illustrations!
Please know that this group is first and foremost all about the Harry Potter books!
To join Epic-Potter, simply request to do so.
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:
WE DO NOT ACCEPT
-pieces strongly and obviously influenced by the movies
-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
-Photography (this includes photos of the Wizarding World Park)
-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.
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:
-Must depict an event which clearly happened or was clearly implied in one of the Harry Potter books. Events must be canon. Canon also includes the episodes written by J.K. Rowling on Pottermore.
-No couple art which is not mentioned in the books. Ex- Ron and Hermione's first kiss in DH would be acceptable. Random fluff of James and Lily getting it on is not.
-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.
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...
The bottom line is:
We ONLY accept high quality, original Potter illustrations.
If your deviation is rejected know that we mean no offense.
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!
