Welcome to Borderlands-Fans, your home for fan-created content of the Gearbox Software / 2K Games Borderlands series! We strive to keep an organized, easy-to-navigate community here for all Borderlands fans here on deviantART full of fanworks and resources.

I. Etiquette & Member Rules
II. Submission Rules
III. How to Submit
IV. Examples & Folder Descriptions
V. Random Notes of Interest




• Suggestions, comments, complaints, editorials? Feel free to leave a comment on the main page or submit a note to us!

• Harassment of other group members will not be tolerated. Members, if you are having issues with other members of the group, feel free to notify the mods and we will investigate.

• If you harass the mods (whether it be because you disagree with why your submission was declined, you are too impatient to wait for your submission(s) to be accepted/declined, etc.) you will be removed from the club after three offenses. If the offense is agreed to be serious enough, it can warrant an immediate removal.

• If your submitted works are determined to be traced/plagiarized/uploaded when you are not the original owner, you and your deviations will be removed immediately.




We do NOT accept:

• Art violating the deviantART guidelines, including sexual depictions of minors or those who appear to be minors. This also includes images that depict obvious/clear sexual intercourse. We will also decline implied intercourse to remain within dA's rules.

• Fetish-based deviations.

• My Little Ponies or related artwork, including Borderlands characters drawn as ponies.

• Traced/plagiarized art/writing. This includes art traced from screenshots/official art/promo images or someone else's fan-created content.

• Usage/re-submissions of official/promotional art unless significantly edited for a wallpaper or other graphic.

• Art that copies/references ("eyeballs") official Gearbox screenshots/promo material/concept art without significant stylistic differences between the original work and your own.

• Multiple works-in-progress (WIPS). Once you submit a finalized version we will remove all WIPs from the group to cut down on clutter.

• "Inspired by" pieces, or works featuring excessive cameos from non-Borderlands characters. Unless your image is explicitly Borderlands-identifiable in some way, please do not submit it. We do not accept general "wasteland/post-apocalyptic/Fallout/Dune/Mad Max" style works.

• IRL Political Propaganda: for example, a Borderlands character endorsing an IRL election candidate. Even if you use a Borderlands character to convey your message, the fact remains that it is not a piece celebrating Borderlands or its characters.




Please make sure you submit to the correct folder when adding your work!*

• Find the folder you want to contribute to

• Click on the '+' on the upper right corner of that folder

• Submit!

• Not sure what folder your content belongs in? Scroll down for folder explanations!

• *Still not sure after checking out the examples? Submit it to the Unsorted folder and one of the mods will put the deviation in its new home.





• A digital painting of Lilith would go into the Lilith the Firehawk folder.

• A photo of a Moxxi cosplay would go into the Cosplay folder.

• A Source Film Maker posing of Gaige, Axton, and Wilhelm would go into the 3D Works folder.

• A Psycho's buzz axe you made would go into the Crafts folder.


• Character folders are specifically for traditional/digital art only. If the piece is in another medium (writing, crafts, screenshots, etc.), it will go into the folder for that medium.

• The Multiple Characters folder is for images that contain two or more canon characters, or a mix of canon and original characters. An image of Tannis and Krieg, or a dozen of your original characters and Handsome Jack would belong in this folder.

• However, an image of two or more original characters would still be sorted into the Original Characters folder.

• If the character you have created work for doesn't have their own folder, please submit your deviations to Unlisted Characters. We will create individual character folders if the character has an in-game splash screen or if the character has more than a handful of works dedicated to them.

• The Cosplay folder is for costumes and makeup only. Cosplay props showcased on their own belong in the Crafts folder.

• Images of non-Borderlands characters dressed up as Borderlands characters belong in the Miscellaneous folder.

Pixel Art, Screencaps, and Stamps/Posters/Wallpapers are self-explanatory.

• Images with excessive gore, nudity, or sexual themes (implied or explicit) that don't violate deviantART's rules should be submitted to the NSFW folder. Not sure if your piece is NSFW? Ask yourself if your piece would be something you'd feel secure looking at if an employer, teacher, or parent was watching over your shoulder. If the answer is no, submit it to NSFW.

• We have implemented a two submissions per day per folder limit. This is to reduce clutter in everyone's inboxes.




• Each mod accepts 5 submissions per day. We want everyone to have a chance for their work to be seen! If both active mods are online, 10 submissions will be accepted per day.

• Our submission queue has anywhere from 20 - 50 submissions at any given time. Please do not resubmit your works unless they have an expiration notice on them. They will be declined otherwise.

• If you are an active member of the group and regularly submit things, you may be sent an invitation to join as a Contributor!

Cygnonymous and Karstine are the active mods. Feel free to direct questions and suggestions to them.

• Check out the journal for group updates and ideas, we would love your input!
Hi everybody, and happy 2016!

It took a lot longer than anticipated, but the group's finally been cleaned up and organized better.


1. Rules and Guidelines were updated and organized. If you have any questions or if things are still confusing, let us know/tell us what/why.

2. "Featured Deviations" was updated for the first time in years, probably. Random deviations from each folder will be selected and featured every month because there's some great stuff buried in every folder.

3. Most of the folders were cleaned up as of last week. Deviations were cleaned up and reorganized, "dead"/in-storage deviations were removed. Deviations of members no longer active in the group are also being removed little by little.

4. New folders were added/some old folders were changed:
a. Pixel Art, Screencaps, Landscapes and Environments, and Unsorted were added. New character folders will be added soon.
b. 3D Works has been changed to 3D and SFM Works, Other Characters has been changed to Unlisted Characters.
c. Folders for characters lacking an in-game splashscreen or significant popularity were removed (Winger, Karima).

Possible Upcoming Changes/Additions:

(Whether or not these will be added is up to input from you guys/whether or not you'd find these additions helpful, so please leave a comment if you're interested/not interested!)

1. Considering adding folders for the following things:

a. Popular pairings (stuff that has 50+ deviations, probably) and/or canon/oc pairings
b. (SFW) Furry/anthro/animal art since there are a few users who draw the characters as animals

2. A "hub" of sorts for people to display their contact information for gaming purposes (XBL, Steam, PSN, etc.) and/or organizing group sessions
3. Another hub featuring up-to-date news regarding the Borderlands series and related merchandise.
4. A twitter account, for the sake of potentially hosting contests?

If there any additional noteworthy changes or ideas, they'll be listed here in this journal with an update notification.

Thanks so much for your patience, everyone! You're all badass. Hopefully everything in the group is easier to navigate now. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions of their own in regards to making the group even better, feel free to let us know. :D

Hey I was wondering if anyone could help me out? I've been looking for a SFM model of Future/Bandit Vaughn but I can't find one anywhere, dose anyone have a link to one? (I think they exists somewhere)
charlottemay416 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, this reply is extremely late, but if you are still looking for a Bandit Vaughn SFM model, Yhrite made one. You can find it (and a whole lot of other Borderlands and Tales from the Borderlands models) linked in this tumblr post:…

I will say that the models I've used from Yhrite don't have named bones (just Bone1, Bone2, etc.) The bones are not the same from model to model, either, as I recall. So when you open each model up in SFM the first time, you might want to have a notepad handy to write yourself up a key.

I'm sorry 
I put my OC in the Other Characters folder on accedent but I sent it again in the right folder.
BonitoShark Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
No worries! Got it all sorted out. :D
LokiFan360 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I submitted a drawing of my Vault Hunter OC in the Original Characters folder 2 days ago.
Why hasn't it been accepted yet? 
Just asking, not being hasty :D
BonitoShark Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
We accept submissions a handful at a time (usually 5 - 10 per day) so it gives everyone a chance for their art to be seen/not 50+ submissions an hour by accepting/declining everything at once. Yours is probably still in the queue somewhere! There's anywhere from 20 to 50 submissions in the queue at any time. 
LokiFan360 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Gotchya, sorry.
Thanks a bunch.

LOL Love you icon *dies*
