Welcome to Children of the Isles!


This is a group dedicated to creative works surrounding the tall, golden-skinned denizens of the Summerset Isles, the Altmer, or 'High Elves' as they are known in other parts of Tamriel.

We welcome all works depicting the Altmer, including those born and raised in other provinces as well as servants of the Dominion and the Thalmor!



-This is a Altmer-only group. Your artwork or written works must feature an Altmer as their main subject or character. Characters of other races may be present, but they must not be the main focus of the piece, nor should the focus be scattered amongst other characters of varying demographic (the only exception for this is couples; there may be an Altmer and a character of another race present in the picture).

-We accept all levels of artistic and/or writing ability. However, please keep in mind that there are base standards that must be met to avoid submission rejection:

:bulletred:No blurry/distorted/badly-lit camera shots of your work. If you do not own a scanner, please take special consideration to make sure that the resulting snapshot is as clear and visible as possible (this includes post-production and editing). Also be sure to resize the image to dimensions that are practical for viewing on a screen. If we have to scroll too far left and right or back and forth, the submission WILL be rejected.

:bulletred:No lined/graph paper! Blank paper only, please, unless you know how to properly edit out the lines later.

:bulletred:No stick-figures or severely underdeveloped anatomy. We need to be able to see that the a character, if that makes sense(?)

:bulletred:No edges, tears, smears, stains or any other form of damage should be visible on the paper (with the exception of specific artistic circumstances that have been specifically accepted by the admins).

:bulletred: For written works, we only accept works in English, and that includes proper grammar structure, punctuation, spelling, etc. Works obviously translated via Google Translate or other frequently improper means of translation will be rejected.

:bulletred: Only submit your best work: finished works that are a good representation of your artistic and/or writing ability. No works-in-progress, messy concept sketches or otherwise scrapped works.

-Only submit work that YOU have created yourself. We will not accept work that has been stolen, edited, traced or otherwise copied from someone else. Offenders will be banned on the first offense, as art-theft should be an obvious no-no. If you feel that something has been submitted and accepted that was stolen from someone else (mistakes happen), please contact the group immediately and we will have it removed.

-No drama-llamas! Any instances of bullying, threats, harrassment or trolling on the group page will be dealt with immediately. Offenders will get one warning, and then they will be banned. If you are having an issue with another group member/deviant, please do not bring it to the group page. Discuss it on your own pages or via notes. Otherwise, bring it up with the dA Help Desk.

-PLEASE SUBMIT TO THE PROPER FOLDER, AND NO SUBMISSIONS TO FEATURED! If your deviation does not fit in any of the otherwise available categories, contact us and we will suggest a placement or create a new folder to accommodate!

-If your written work has more than one part/chapter, please only submit the first chapter!

-Only three submissions per day! This is to control the flow of submissions so that it is manageable for admin review, and so that deviations can be approved or declined in a timely manner.

-The group DOES accept screenshots that a deviant has made, themselves, in-game. However, submissions for screenshots are heavily monitored for quality, artistic appeal, and possible redundancy. We will not accept multiple, similarly-shot screenshots of the same character, for example. Be creative and make the screenshots worthy of viewing in a gallery.

-Mature content is accepted, in both visual and written work. Just make sure to send it to the appropriate folders!

-When submitting work, please be sure to review dA's policies regarding content and what is acceptable on the site.


If you are interested in becoming a Co-Founder or Contributor, please contact the group with reasons why you think you should be an admin!

We are glad to have help with submissions and the running of the group!

If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please leave a comment on the group page or send a note.

Greetings and thank you for taking me in to this wonderful group! I must say I enjoy the pleasure of no longer merely watching from the outside.

Is there a hold on accepting submissions at the moment?  The first two chapters of my fic were accepted, but the third has been pending approval for almost 2 days.  I completely understand if people are busy - RL trumps everything else after all, I just wanted to make sure I hadn't done anything incorrectly that was causing the holdup.

It does have one scene of mature content in it, but it is clearly marked in the text, as well as having the mature content DA filter enabled.

Awesome group I love the Altmer, ever since daggerfall they have fascinated me. I especially love that alot of the art has remained rue to their cannon look.

One of our affiliates, #Altmers-of-Tamriel, is also an Altmer group, if you're interested.

But welcome to #ChildrenOfTheIsles!

Happy to have you! :D

Oooo =o

Thank youu~!
(Also, if it's not too much to ask - the entry that was requested into the gallery, my character Taz - could that be moved to the half-altmer folder? He's a mix of Dunmer/Altmer ;v; Not sure if that makes a terrible difference.)

Would this belong in Thalmor or Male Altmer? [link]
