Random from Featured

The favorites folder of our group is reserved for winners in the contests.

Congratulations, you guys!





Welcome to the Myths and Legends Group!


Our focus is to bring fans of mythology and legends together in one group. We also accept anything that has fantasy in it, so join up and start submitting!


:star: How to Join

:star: Submission Rules and how to submit

:star: Contests

:star: How to Run Your Own Group

:star: Why my Groups Don't Do "Quality Control"







:trophy: The contest is now closed, and judging has begun! If there's anyone else out there who can draw a request art for one of the winners, that would be great! :D

:star: For this contest you'll be drawing/writing about Legends of the Sea!

- The contest is as simple as it sounds! Draw or write a myth or legend that has to do with the sea/ocean.

***Mermaids are NOT allowed in this contest because we recently had a contest for mermaids. So, you can't do anything that's half-human, half-fish. That being said, if you wanted to do something like half-human, half-octopus, you're good. Just... pretty much don't do something that looks like Ariel from The Little Mermaid. XD

- You may draw/write about something completely original or something based on an actual myth or legend.

- Your picture/story must take place in a large body of water. Preferably the ocean, but lakes and rivers and the like are fine, too.

- This being a fantasy group, you must include fantasy elements to your piece. In other words, you can't just draw a Great White Shark and enter it in the contest. What those fantasy elements might be are up to you- we won't be strict about it- you can even chose to make your fantasy element radical coloring. Just go for it!

- Preferably, if you're drawing something original, it'd be a good idea to have a story to go with it to go in your description.

:star: Extra Points :star:
These are ways to get extra points in the contest. Each are worth 5 extra points in your popular vote score.
:bulletpurple: Draw/write about or include a deep sea creature in your art/literature as a focal point. Deep sea creatures live below 1000 fathoms and are easily googled. Please leave a link to a picture of your chosen creature in your description.
:bulletpurple: Include a specific sea plant in your image with a link to a picture of the real thing.
>>>>>Please include which points you included in your description so that the admins don't have to do any guesswork.

- No vulgarity. Artistic nudity is fine.

- No fanart. All designs must be your own. Incorporating classical features of legendary characters into your art is fine, though.

- No literary characters. So nothing from Shakespeare or JM Barrie and the like.

- Do not submit an old work of art. It must be new and created after this contest was put up [November 29th, 2016]

- Do not copy/trace the work of somebody else. Your art must be completely your own.

- You can be as serious or comical as you want.

- Any medium is acceptable. Ex: Sculpture, Digital, traditional, costume... anything!

- Yes, that means writing/literature is allowed.

- For literature participants: don't make your story too long; the judges and voters can't spend too long going through your work. Aim for 15 pages or less.

- ***When you submit your entry to deviantART, PLEASE mention that it's for the contest in this group somewhere in your description. Not because we need more promotion, but because there are a ton of people who submit to the wrong folder and don't even mean to try to enter the contest.
If you don't mention that your illustration is for this contest in the description, it will be removed from the folder.***

- You may have up to two entries this time. But that's the limit.

- Keep it clean. No porn, no fetishes. Keep it tasteful - Keep it PG13. If you have any questions about taste level, send us a note or leave a comment.

- You may enter the contest even if you're not a member. Just be sure to give us a link so we can add it.

- When you're done, post a comment with a link to your entry here, and we'll add it to the list.

- Also, we've created a folder for our new contest in the gallery called, "Contest 20 - Legends of the Sea". Be sure to submit there.

-When the contest is over, we'll put up a blog with all the entries on it, and the members will vote on which one they think is best.

- If you have any additional questions, either comment here, note the club, or note the owner, (Zimeta)

:bulletred: Creativity! The best artwork won't necessarily win. The artist who thinks out of the box and puts in a ton of work will win.

:bulletred: Make a scene! Interaction, impact!

:bulletred:  Effort. The judges can really tell how much effort was put into an image.

:bulletred: Think outside the box!

:bulletred: Your panel of judges are:

:iconmistytang: :iconratscout: :iconzimeta: :iconpaavolongshanks: :iconkitsunechibi-chan:

Judges may enter too, if they want. But, you won't be up for the winning in the judge's section.

Three winners will be chosen by a panel of judges. If we get up to 21 entries, we'll add a popular vote section for three additional entries.
If you're interested in doing a prize request for one or more of the winners, just note or comment here!
:star: If you're willing to donate a subscription to one of the winners, just let us know! :star:

01.) Returning to Land - Contest Entry by HeroismInACan

02.) The rise of Atlantis. by JettieHier

03.) Tales Of Mysteria: The Sea GoddessThe times were cold and bitter. The world was brittle and dying and the Gods… The Gods were cruel. They regularly attacked, enslaved and plagued the mortals with any type of suffering their saw fit. They could end the world at the drop of a hat though so no mortal dared speak against them. But this was one of the times someone did. Far on the coast of human lands, on the docks of a city called Harowick was a woman and a massive crew of warriors packing several ships full of supplies and materials needed for the trip they were going on. The woman’s name was Saenis and she was in charge of this expedition.
“Come men! We haven’t much time! Mareus is sure to be expecting us and the longer we take, the more time we give her to prepare!” Saenis shouted as everyone doubled their efforts. From the distance running through the crowd of onlookers came a messenger, with a scroll in hand.
“Hermion. I hope that scroll you hold brings good news,” She said pl

14.) Hakunui, the Pliosaur God
There was something peaceful about the Jurassic, Lin thought as she sat on the deck.  No one ever believed her and on land, the dinosaurs could be very dangerous, but Lin was sitting on a boat in the middle of the Panthalassic Ocean, the biggest ocean in the history of the Earth.  Nothing but water as far as the eye could see with a few clouds in the distance.  The smell of the salt air in her nose and a cool breeze in her face.  Lin could not be happier.  She got up to refresh her drink when it happened.  Despite all her years time traveling, Lin had never really felt ‘outside of time.’  Until now.
Lin’s feet were thrust out from under her as the boat itself rose up.  It all happened so quick, yet despite that it seemed to take forever.  In front of her the deck disintegrated into splinters and was replaced by a massive set of jaws.
The monster that owned them followed, breaching out of the water for almost thirty feet, bl

No problem!
shebyperez1995 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2016  Student Writer
How much longer until the decision is made on what we will be competing in, and is literature allowed? Is there a prize?
Zimeta Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Literature is always allowed. Prizes are always minimal (usually just a few art requests from volunteers)- contests here are for fun more than anything else.
shebyperez1995 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2016  Student Writer
