What is the World Builders Guild?
We are a group dedicated to collecting great artwork that will inspire world building. Our members are both artists who like to draw fantasy worlds and want to share their artwork, as well as writers who enjoy creating and writing about such worlds and benefit from viewing the great artwork.
What Is World Building?
World Building is the process of creating a fictional world, from drawing the world map right down to creating the civilizations and races that live in the world. It is most often undertaken by fantasy and sci-fi writers however, films and video games also feature world building especially if they are in the fantasy or sci-fi genre.
The degree of building that is done depends entirely upon the individual writer and their needs. Arguably the most famous world builder is J.R.R Tolkien.
Can I become a Guild Member?
Certainly, we’d love to have you join The World Builders Guild. Though if you would like to submit your artwork then please only submit your best work as we like to keep a high standard to provide the greatest inspiration and quality possible.
Please don’t be offended if your art is rejected, we will try and tell you why your piece was rejected. However, most of the time it is due to the art being submitted to the featured folder rather than the relevant one.
If you're not a member or watcher yet then please join us

Planet Building - The Stellar ScaleThere are millions of variations of planets. Unfortunately, there is only one variation we know of that is guaranteed to be able to support life, and that’s the one you’re standing on. What we have here on Earth is the perfectly balanced formula for creating a habitable planet with life. But what if you don’t want to set your story on Earth or its intergalactic clone? What if you want your Planet X to be different, to have two suns, or six moons? There’s no reason you can’t have those things, but once you start playing with the formula it is important to understand that the end result will change.Planet Building - The Stellar Scale by ~GlassShadows-Saga

Qokchurnath - Sea Castle"Strong sounds of horn guided us, and as we approached, mist slowly vanished, revealing the towering twin fortress of Qokchurnath which rose from the sea as if the Lords of Ocean and Stone had given birth to a beautiful child of rock and sea foam."Qokchurnath - Sea Castle by ~juhhmi

Anybody Who Draws Any of My OCs Gets a WatchI am a writer who needs a bunch of stuff to get drawn. If anyone draws anything of mine I'll give them a llama if I haven't already given them one + a fav + a watch and I'll feature the picture here. If your interested please comment. Basically whatever you want to draw I'll find a way to incorporate it into my world. If you want to draw a spider or a pony or a goblin or whatever I'll figure out a way and you will get rewarded. (I swear, even if you want to make something that may seem irrelevant like a pony.) We will discuss it and fit it into the theme of my world.

The Blackheart Lacustrine PalaceThe Lacustrine Palace
One of the old residences of Meridian’s royal family prior to their ascension to the throne, the Lacustrine Palace of House Blackheart was one of the most magnificent residences in the Imperial Capital City of Gestalt. Although not as huge or as old as that of the other palatial compounds of the noble houses of Anspach, it is definitely one of the most opulent—a wondrous blending of cultures that would help set the trend for all patrician residences and the architecture of the Meridian Empire for years to come.
