Kaor, Weary Traveller!

I have ever been prone to seek adventure and to investigate and experiment where wiser men would have left well enough alone. - ERB, A Princess of Mars


Welcome to the Edgar Rice Burroughs group!

We accept any artwork for work Burroughs created. Whether they be illustrations for his books, or fanarts for his movies and TV shows, we enjoy seeing it all!

So, get drawing and start submitting!

Thanks to all who entered! You created some GREAT art for this contest!

:bulletblue: CONCEPT:

Dejah Thoris

With this contest, we will be portraying ERB's most famous princess: Dejah Thoris!
We'll see all the crazy awesome designs you guys can some up with!

- All Work submitted must be NEW! Don't submit an older drawing into the contest. Where's the fun in that? All drawings submitted into the contest must be made after 05-30-13

- Dejah Thoris, of course, MUST be in the picture, and must be a central element.

- Other chracters can be in the picture as well, of course.

- You can come up with your own design for Dejah, OR you can draw a fanart based on other artists' predictions (Michael Whelan cover art, Frank Frazetta, John Carter movie, etc.)

- Don't be gross. Nudity is fine as long as it's tasteful. ERB worked back in first half of the 1900s, so be as classy as he was, m'kay? Let's keep the boobies proportional. If you have any questions about taste level, feel free to ask!

- No fetishes. That means no pantie shots, no tickling crap, no bondage, no man-preg, no garbage. >:C

- No "gender-bending". Let's keep our dudes dudes and our ladies ladies, please.

- You may have up to three entries.

- Also, please mention this contest in the description of your image. Otherwise I'm not sure whether or not you meant to enter it in the contest!

- Any medium is fine: traditional, digital, writing, Cosplay, 3D renders, sculpture etc.. Whatever you got you can do!

- To submit to the contest, just add your entry to our Contest 07 - Dejah Thoris folder.

- Any other questions? Feel free to ask by leaving a comment here, or sending the group a note.

If any of our members wants to donate their skills as an artist and so request drawings for some/one/all of the winners, please let me know by placing a comment or sending a note to the group. Even just a sketch is good!

If any of our members wants to donate DA a subscription for one/some/all of the winners, please let us know. :3

If any of our members wants to donate ERB books, prints of any sort, or anything else you can think of, let us know! Anything you got is welcomed.

The winners will be chosen by popular vote, but If we get up to 20 entries, a second prizes section will be added. There will be a panel of judges to select three more winners. ^.^

If you want to enter the contest, AND do a prizeart for one of the winners, feel free to do so!

Why am I only allowed to upload two images to the group per week?
Zimeta Apr 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's just the restriction for everyone. But, I guess I could increase it a little more. ;)
Gnostic85 3 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It would be very nice if I could submit more than two images per week. I have quite a few Burroughs-related images...
Zimeta 3 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Alrighty. I've increased it to four for ya. :)

Hello, and thanks for the requests. I've been working to add some more detail to the pieces, if you would like to wait for the updates instead ? :)
