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.

Curious People: people with unusual appearances or tastes or who are in unusual situations. And perhaps shapeshifters too.

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). Maybe mermaids too...

Magical Creatures: Unicorns, dragons, kelpies, pookahs, firebirds, rocs, basilisks, griffins, winged horses, phoenixes, anything magical or mythical, but with a unique twist.

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

Fantastic Monsters: cthulhu, Frankenstein's monster, 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: unusual mechanical creations; they can be 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 (formerly known as Odds and Ends): anything that doesn't fit in any of the other folders but still deserves the title of unusual.
Dépaysé: dé·pay·sé


situated in unfamiliar surroundings :  being out of one's element :  displaced, astray <lived in hope of being instructed to drive me to Biarritz, where among the other hired-car chauffeurs … he would feel less dépaysé — A. J. Liebling>


French, from past participle of dépayser to remove (a person) from his element, from Old French despaisier to exile, from des- de- + pais region, country, from Medieval Latin pagensis of a region, from Latin pagus region, district, village + -ensis -ese — more at pagan
Fixed some kinks in the submission process. Members will now be allowed 1 submission per week, members of affiliates will have 2 per month, and non-members 1 per month. Only members can suggest to the feature folder. If you are having problems submitting or have any questions please shoot us a note. Also, a note on Deviant's requesting membership. We only accept as members Deviants with substantial galleries of high quality work with an overall eldritch style. If you only have a few deviations in your gallery or have only one or two eldritchy pieces, we will decline your request. If you are not sure what is acceptable take a walk through our gallery or just look up the definition of the word eldritch which I took the liberty of doing for you.

Eldritch: el-drich


1. supernatural, uncanny, unearthly, weird, eerie, spooky, strange


1500-10; earlier elrich, equivalent to Old English  el- foreign, strange, uncanny (see else ) + rīce kingdom (see rich ); hence “of a strange country, pertaining to the Otherworld”; compare Old English  ellende in a foreign land, exiled (cognate with German  Elend penury, distress), Runic Norse alja-marki r foreigner
