Group Info

There are a plenthora of vampire groups out there, we know, but if you want a group that is simply dedicated to collecting the best in vampire art then this is the place for you!

No fan-hate here folks, whether you're a Twi-hard or a LARPer, comic-book crazy, or die-hard Nosferatu fan... we're here to celebrate the vampire of literature, film and television in style. Though we're generally dedicated to vampires who exist in what could be considered an alternative to the modern world, I'm sure we'll be making exceptions for the very best of fantasy, sci-fi and other alternative vampire settings.
So sign up today! ...what are you talking about... don't be silly, of course it's not blood, it's just red ink... that's right, sign your soul bwahahahaha

Group Rules

*Please read before suggesting a fave or submitting artwork!!*

Admission should be completely open, anyone can join!
Please note, if you start spamming us with declined requests persistently, breaking rules or causing havoc you will be blocked. Thank you for understanding.

Fair warning: the admins at this site have, sadly, found it difficult to keep up with the submissions. We are sorry we haven't been more active, and thank you for all your submissions, but we may not get to them in time. Please do not feel bad about this. It's not personal, just a sad fact that we don't have enough time. :( Once again, sorry for any abandoned submissions.


Firstly please read the rules below before submitting your work. Anything which does not meet these rules will not be accepted.
Please submit ALL artwork to the Featured folder in the gallery (not the Favourites folder). Submissions will then be moved to their relevant galleries by admin once they are accepted.
Submission limit is 5 per week per member. Non-members cannot submit. Please note that anything submitted to us must achieve two admin votes.

1 - It must be a piece of visual art.
2 - It must be original work belonging to the Deviant who has claimed a right to it. Photomanipulations are acceptable as long as they are correctly credited, or if it's a demotivational poster for the Humor folder, but we will not accept simple, straight-up screenshots. Funny though they may be!!
3 - It MUST include a depiction of a vampire, and this vampire must either be obviously so, or described as such in the picture's description/comments. If we can see no indication that the image is of a vampire or related to vampire mythos (i.e. Vlad the Impaler) it will not be included.
4 - the aim of this group is to collect high-standard and original works depicting vampires. As such the level of quality should be intermediate and above for all folders, with the exception of humour and cuteness. This folder will be judged more on how amusing or cute the content is, and quality shall be a secondary consideration. From time to time exceptions may be made to accommodate works depicting rare or original subject matter. Intermediate to high means the work must be finished to a good standard in technique and anatomy, with no rule lines, poorly cropped edges, etc.

The group admin is bound to stick to these rules deciding on any artwork submitted, if anyone wishes to challenge a decision they may do so and the reasoning must be explained on both sides in a civilised manner and an understanding reached. The admin must consider these challenges but are in no way obligated to change their ruling.

Fan-HATE will not be tolerated but everyone must be prepared for a little ridicule and jest directed at characters, franchises or specific books/TV/Films. Just keep an open mind and always be respectful to your fellow vampire-lovers!

Please note the Favourites folder will house all art featured in our Affiliate Spotlight in the Vampire Journal.

Finally HAVE FUN!
Relax, and enjoy the very best of vampire art from your fellow deviants the world over. =D

Best of Vampires is happy to affiliate with groups dedicated to the following:-
- TV shows/Book series/Films/Games/RPGs/online or published comics featuring vampires
- specific vampire characters from any of the above
- Original vampire characters
- vampires in general
- writers, screenwriters or directors who publish vampire or dark fantasy fiction featuring vampires, or are known for their work pertaining to vampires (i.e. Joss Wheedon, Anne Rice, Bram Stoker)
- historical figures related to the vampire mythos or literature
- Monsters/Horror/Dark Fantasy themed groups which accept vampire work
Hi Vampire fans!
I apologise for the exceedingly long hiatus of Journal Entries, but hope you’ve still been enjoying the new gallery submissions here at the Best-of-Vampires. I have some exciting news from our affiliate Group VtMB-FanClub - (full disclosure) where I am also Admin. :) Who are running a competition with a $100 prize!

Please see the details from the Group below:

The Bloodlines Invitational Contest

Sei-ey may be familiar to many of you as one of the most prolific and high-quality VTMB fan-artists out there, and he has very kindly offered to put up a prize of $100 (US) via PayPal for the winner of The Bloodlines Invitational Contest.

Your mission?
Submit a picture of any PC or NPC character from the Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (2004) PC Game, to ‘The Bloodlines Invitational Contest Folder’ by 1st June 2015 (23:59 GMT). (The Folder will appear on the 1st March.)

Sei-ey and I (Saphyr88) will then take a month to put our heads together and announce the winner by 1st July 2015. The winner and any runners up will be added to the Featured Folder, and Sei-ey will contact and arrange payment to the winner.

Judging Criteria & Rules
We want to see some sort of narrative, not just a portrait of a character, but some kind of representation of what the character is doing, feeling or experiencing.
We’re looking for creativity and quality.
The standard of your work in relation to your overall gallery will have an impact on our decision. Works which show a marked improvement or consistent quality will be judged positively, and those which seem less well-done than your previous work will be seen negatively.
The character depicted must be one of the NPC or PC in the Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (2004) PC Game. Entirely Original Characters, not based on the PC designs, are not accepted.
We will accept Mod NPCs, but please give us information in the description about their role in the mod as the judges are not as familiar with them. If we recieve no info in the description, a Mod NPC depiction may be at a disadvantage.
The picture can be in any medium. Literature will not be accepted.
The image must also comply with the normal Submission rules as outlined on the Group Info Page.
All entires must be added to ‘The Bloodlines Invitational Contest Folder’

No late submissions will be accepted
The contest opens on 1st March 2015 (when the folder will appear online) and will run until 1st June 2015 (23:59 GMT)

If you run any other groups, please spread the word. Let everyone know, and go get cracking with your own ideas. We are so pumped about this, and are really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Good luck!
Saphyr88 & Sei-ey

So I guess I'm leaving this group since I keep submitting over and over again and all my submissions just expire. Shrug

Do Half-Vampires suffice?
Nikke-Larsen Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016  Student Filmographer
Well, if they still act and look like vampires - yes.
Anime girls with vampyric powers and no bloodlust - no.
krasblak Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2016  Professional
it would be great if you included vampire stories in the group.
Nikke-Larsen Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016  Student Filmographer
Sorry, only pictures and animation.
Tigershark06 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for accepting me into your group.  I have a quick question for you before I start posting art.  Do you have any restrictions as far as content rating?  IE Nudity, Gore??  Just curious so I don't post somethign unacceptable to your folders.
Nikke-Larsen Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016  Student Filmographer
You should read rules carefully! We do not have any visual restrictions on content, only on quality of submitted works.
Tigershark06 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I did read the rules carefully and there was nothing stating specifically.  I was just asking for clarification's sake.  Rather that than getting banned right off the bat.
Nikke-Larsen Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2016  Student Filmographer
We will not accept works that does not correspond the MENTIONED rules. Any quality drawings, is it guro, vore or hard porn, are okay and will be put in following folder, but they must suit the standarts.
