Guidelines and Our Multi-dimensional Visitors

Locations of Site Visitors
(Visitors starting Jan. 22, 2015)

This group was founded for the purpose of sharing and collecting the best of the truly unique, strangely beautiful, and wonderfully weird (or just plain odd) art that DeviantArt has to offer. If you are fascinated with the unusual then this is the group for you. This is NOT your classic art group.
We do NOT accept:
-- subjects with nudity (unless the important parts are covered). On rare occasion soft nudity is accepted if the work is truly exceptional,
-- excessively macabre work (surgery, spilled guts, etc) although a little blood is fine.
-- erotic or profane content. Anything requiring a mature tag will be automatically declined.

Only submit your own, completed, original artwork.
Fanart is accepted only if done in your own unique style.
Only high quality work following our guidelines will be accepted.

When applying for membership, keep in mind that we only accept Deviant's with a substantial collection of work and an overall eldritch style. Everyone is welcome to Watch the group. During contests anyone can participate but only members can vote.

Mysterious Mortals: eerie people, engaged in strange activities or in unusual situations.

Fabled Beings: For non-human beings who are basically humanoid in shape but are not creatures, monsters, or ghosts. For instance, elves, fairies, gods, angels, or magical creatures who have taken human shape (fox ladies, etc). Merpeople too...

Magical Creatures: Unicorns, dragons, kelpies, pookahs, anything magical or mythical, but with an eldritch twist.

Spooky Spectres: Ghosts, zombies, vampires, demons, and underworlders unite!

Fantastic Monsters: cthulhu, Frankenstein's monster, criptids, sea creatures -- release the Kraakens!, elementals, strange pets.

Dark Literature/Poetry: all forms and themes are accepted, as long as it's eerie, spooky, dark, mysterious and, of course, wandering off the beaten path.

Anomalous Aliens: space battles, black holes, aliens, other worlds.

Weird Mechanics: steampunk, androids, unusual mechanical creations - cute and quirky or big and monstrous.

Strange Places: any work where the center of interest is
a place -- strange, foreboding, off-kilter, dream-like, etc.

Mixed Brew: anything that doesn't fit in any of the other folders but still deserves the title of unusual.
Offing: aw-fing


1. the more distant part of the sea seen from the shore, beyond the anchoring ground.

2. a position at a distance from shore.


3. in the offing, a distance but within sight. the projected future; likely to happen:
A wedding is in the offing.


1620-30;  off + -ing1
I want to express my deepest apologies for being absent from the group for so long. I was having a new computer built and the one I was borrowing didn't agree with the website and I couldn't access my profile. But now my new computer is up and running and I am back in business! I may be a little slow getting back in the groove of things since I have sooo many messages to sort through but I'll do my best. It's good to be back!
