Guidelines For Using /Art/

- Be respectful of others and others' works.
- Don’t be unnecessarily rude about someone or their work.
- At the same time, don’t hate on people who critique your work.
- Be sure to report threads that don't follow these guidelines or the rules of the site. If you feel someone is being unnecessarily rude to you or others, keep your cool and report them.
- /art/ isn't just for artists! Everypony's input is welcome.

Artists' Threads
- Artists are encouraged to make one gallery thread for personal use. This includes showing your work, taking requests and/or commissions, announcing livestreams, asking for critique, etc.
- Artists of any skill level are welcome and encouraged to make their own threads, take requests, and comment on others work. Don't be shy!
- Artists who create a thread should have it added to the directory. Post a link to your thread here, and mention what sections of the directory it should go in.
- Artists can link to off-site galleries, such as Tumblr or deviantART.
- Get as much information in your original post as possible. Tags are great for this.

- Don't make a new thread for requests. Use the directory to find an artist who takes them, and ask in their thread instead.
- Check the artists' queues. If someone is backed up on requests, asking a different artist whose queue is shorter will get you a better response.
- Be clear and descriptive with your request. Letting the artist "Have their own vision" isn't really the point of a request.
- Please be patient, and don't spam all the artists' threads with a single request.
- Please wait until your request is declined or ignored before reposting it to another artist.
- There are plenty of guides and templates for you to use. If you want something simple for an OC, try to make something yourself first. /art/ will be happy to help you out.

If you are taking commissions, your thread should include the following:
- A complete list of categories you will do works in;
- A full price sheet, and payment methods that you accept;
- Up-to-date examples of your work, either in your thread or a linked gallery;
- Contact information; and
- A small description of your commission process.

Drawing Tips
- Be sure to check the Tutorial thread if you're just starting out.
- Don't be afraid to ask for critique: everybody needs help to improve!
- Hand-drawn images should be scanned in to make sure your work can be seen properly. Photos often miss the details.
- Use references or guides. They're there for a reason. Nopony will look down on you if you do so.
- For digital drawings, you might want to invest in a Wacom Tablet.
- Useful programs: PaintTool SAI, GIMP, MyPaint, openCanvas, Inkscape.

Tag System

Tags are useful so that visitors can quickly get information about threads in the board overview. You can use the following to help clarify what your thread is about:

Art Type
#Traditional: hand-drawn art, such as drawings, paintings, sculpture, etc.
#Digital: art made using a computer, including everything from digital painting to 3D modelling.
#Vectors: art made using vector graphics.
#Alterations: recolors and image manipulations.
#Comics: comics, including full-page series, short joke comics, or even one-panel gags.
#Canon: characters from the show.
#OCs: fan-made characters.

Thread Type
#Gallery: showcasing an artist's works.
#Discussion: discussion about the fine nature of pony drawings.
#Event: art-related events, such as contests.
#Requests: the artist is taking requests.
#Commissions: the artist is taking commissions.
#Critique wanted: the artist would like critiques of their works.

The latter three tags should only be used in a #Gallery thread.

Hey-o I decided to start up a gallery/commission thread, and I was wondering if you could add it to the idex, I'd really appreciate it.

I just hope I met all the requirements in regards to giving the appropriate details for doing commissions.

Here's the link.

Hello, I was formerly 00ToD00 AKA the person who's gallery link is first on the list and I came back after a veryyyy long time. (That thread was started in 2011 my goodness)

I have changed my artist name to Quarium and improved vastly on my art's quality but also changed a lot as a person as well...

Point is, I wanna come back to /art/ but I wanna make a new thread to reflect my current skill level and who I am as an artist as of now and I was wondering if you guys would be okay with that?
>> No. 128870
Feel free. But just so you know, that directory list has not been updated in quite awhile.
>> No. 129265

I'll just leave it here:
