What is Skelegance?
Skelegance is a group that explores and promotes art which depicts death or the macabre presented in an elegant way with strong Victorian influence.
In Skelegance the focus is less on the blood, gore, and gloom of macabre art and more on on the ‘classier’ side of death, the underlining beauty and etherealness of the macabre. (Think skeletons-in-top-hats-drinking-tea.) All entries should depict either (1) death is some way, whether literally, figuratively, or implied, and/or (2) Victorian, mythic, or Steampunk elegance, and/or (3) an elegantly-dressed person (man or woman) or mythic personage experiencing some deep-seated emotion. Not everything here has to be Victorian, but Victorian is preferred. We're classy bitches who like skeletons and dead things.
The gallery is broken up into many exciting folders. Go find one or more that you like!
You can submit to any of the galleries. In each folder there is a description of what kind of art should be submitted there. If you feel a deviation of yours fits into more than one of the folders, choose the folder that best emphasizes the main point of your piece, or feel free to ask the administer's opinion. If a deviation does not fit into the last four folders, it belongs in the Main Gallery. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ONE PIECE INTO MULTIPLE GALLERIES. Nudity is allowed as long as it's tasteful. If we deny a submission, please note us and we will provide you an explanation as to why it was denied, at your request. You do not need to be a member in order to submit to the gallery.
We do not accept:
- Fan art
- Fetish art or pornography
- Photos of actual dead people
- Anthros or Furries or whatever you call them
- Excessive amounts of blood or gore
If you don’t want blood, why is there a folder for it?
Like stated in the folder, sometimes death involves blood. We do accept some amounts of blood, just not excessive. Think a cup of blood rather than a gallon, and keep it classy.
