Welcome to Borderlands-Fans, your home for fanart of the Gearbox Software / 2K games Borderlands and Borderlands 2 as well as all associated media. We only ask that your art is original and keeps the spirit of the game and its characters.


We do not accept:

- Traced art. This includes art traced from screenshots, official art, promo images, or someone else’s fanart.

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

- Art that copies/references official Gearbox screenshots/promo material (for example, we won't accept a drawing of Maya copied exactly from official promo material.)

- Screenshot redraws, unless done with significant effort involved.

- Works in Progress UNLESS you submit one and it is the latest version. Once you submit a finalized version we will remove all WIPs from the group to cut down on clutter.

- Bases, or artwork using them.

- Art violating the dA 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 art/pieces/3D works.

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

- "Inspired by" pieces. Unless your image is obviously Borderlands-related in some way, please do not submit it. We do not accept general "wasteland" style drawings, nor do we accept "Borderlands-y" original characters.

- Political propaganda. 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. I'm sure there are plenty of political groups that fall in line with the message being conveyed that would be happy to accept your submission.

- Game screenshots, unless they are meant to be high-res references - if so, please contact an admin and we will open the folder for you.

- Whitewashed art. This means coloring a non-white character so that they look white. This is racist, and will not be tolerated.


- If you harass or yell at the moderators (whether it be because you disagree with why your submission was declined, or you are too impatient to let us do our jobs, or any other reason that is not warranted,) you will be removed from the club after three offenses. If the offense is serious enough, it can warrant an immediate removal. This is at the discretion of the mods.

- If you harass other members of the group and there is clear evidence, it is grounds for removal.

- If it is discovered that you are stealing or copying someone else's artwork without their permission, you will be removed from the club immediately.


Please make sure you submit to the right category when adding your work.

When submitting:

- Go to the folder you want to add art to
- Click on the '+' on the upper right corner of that folder
- Submit!

Important notes:

- We have implemented a two submissions per day per folder limit. If you wish to upload more than two submissions to a single folder, you will have to wait until the next day to continue. This is to reduce clutter in everyone's inboxes.

- When you submit a piece, PLEASE make sure that you have selected the proper folder in the drop-down menu at the top of the submission widget. DeviantArt has an issue with "resetting" the folder even though you have clicked the + button on the correct folder - it will automatically default to the first listed folder, which is Brick in our case. Please double-check your folder before you click the button!

- Our character folders are for traditional and digital art only. If the piece is in another medium, it will go into the folder for that medium specifically.


-A digital painting of Moxxi would go into the Moxxi folder.
-A photo of a Moxxi cosplay would go into the Cosplay folder.
-A Garrys Mod posing of Moxxi would go into the 3D Works folder.
-A clay sculpture of Moxxi would go into the Crafts folder.
-And so on and so forth.

- The Multiple Characters folder is for images that contain 2 or more canon characters that already have their own folders. For example, an image of Tannis and Krieg will go into Multiple Characters. However, an image of 2 original characters will still go into the Original Characters folder. An image of a canon character with an original character will go into Multiple Characters.

- If the character you have drawn doesn't have their own folder and is a canon character, please submit them to Other Characters. We will create a folder for said character and move it over for you.

- Images of cosplay props are to go into the Crafts folder, NOT the Cosplay folder. The Cosplay folder is for full/WIP costumes only.

- Images of non-Borderlands characters (or non-canon characters) dressed up as Borderlands characters do not go into the Cosplay folder. They are welcome in the Miscellaneous folder.

- Images with nudity, implied nudity, or sexual themes that don't violate DA's or our 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 comfortable looking at if a boss, teacher, or parent was standing over your shoulder. If the answer is no, submit it to NSFW.
Hi guys! Hope everybody has been enjoying the latest episode of Tales From the Borderlands, I know I sure have. The Borderlands series has grown substantially from when the first game came out, it's really amazing how far it's come. I can't wait to see what's next!

I know the submission process has been a confusing mess as more and more Borderlands content has premiered, so the group's going to get folder and submission guidelines overhaul in an effort to make things way less cluttered. The goal is to make things more organized and accessible for everyone. It's probably going to take a few weeks depending on when :iconcygnonymous: or myself has time to work on it, so if things end up looking like a hot mess at any point, it's probably because someone's doing some works in progress right then and there.

If anyone has any questions or suggestions for this group, feel free to leave a comment here or send the group a note. Happy Vault Hunting!

This is probably a dumb question but are Fan Characters for Borderlands accepted in this group? I wanted to make sure before I join and make a mistake by not following the rules.
Karstine Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes they are! :D Submit them to the original characters folder.
Undead-Autumn Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Karstine Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
