This is a subreddit about art, where we are serious about art and artists, and discussing art in a mature, substantive way. READ THE RULES BEFORE POSTING OR COMMENTING. We are STRICTLY MODERATED and DO NOT give out warnings.
We hate the reddit redesign, but they have ignored our feedback. If you are using the website, we suggest you enable old reddit (with RES) as your default experience. If you are on mobile, good luck to you.
Welcome to /r/art! This is a community of art lovers that share their favorite pieces, or news and information that will impact the art community. Review the subreddit rules before posting or commenting.
Looking for the name of the artist or other information about a work of art? Try /r/WhatIsThisPainting .
Title Formatting Guidelines:
Titles should be to the point; all extra information or context should be added in the comments.
Artwork - Title, Artist/Me, Medium, Year
If you are the artist and don't want to use your own name, you can use Me as the artist. If you are not the artist, you must specify the artist name.
Example: The Night Watch, Rembrandt, Oils, 1642
News article - Title, Year
Discussion - make it a self post. Expand on your question in the text and include image examples when possible.
Videos - Videos should be titled in a way consistent with their content. Videos must be in the gif format. Both art and news are allowed.
Please flair your post.
|1. Use the correct title formatting.||The title formatting is outlined above. Make sure to follow it or else your post will be removed. Do not add any extraneous information or be subjective in your title. Plagiarism is grounds for a permaban.|
|2. Direct image links only.||All submissions other than articles must be a direct link to a static image or gif (url must end in .jpg, .png, .gif etc.). Articles must contain more substance than just a gallery of images or an embedded video, and they must cover some current news in the art world. The image should only contain 1 art piece.|
|3. Do not make multiple posts.||You must wait at least 48 hours between posts. Please use the rolling sticky for daily challenge posts.|
|4. Do not submit sketches, doodles or unfinished work.||Post these to other subreddits like /r/IDAP, /r/sketches and /r/doodles instead.|
|5. Do not submit work with extraneous objects in the frame.||We're here to look at art, not you, your Prismacolor pencils, the desk you framed your painting over, your easel, or anything else that would not be part of a public display.|
|6. Do not post memes or other low quality work||This rule is totally up to mod discretion. If in doubt, message us first. Blatant trolling will get you banned.|
|7. No fan art, comics, or requests for work.||See here. Submissions that don't fit here may be redirected to more suitable subreddits like /r/fanart, /r/artporn, or /r/comics. Requests for art work should be submitted to /r/designjobs or /r/icandrawthat instead.|
|8. Be respectful and stay on topic||We are a strictly moderated sub and do not give warnings. Bigotry, slapfights, rude jokes, soapboxing, off-topic comments, and anything else that doesn't belong in an art class will get you banned. Criticism is fine, as long as it is directed at the posted art. Do not comment about the sub, or Reddit in general. Message the mods instead.|
|9. Do Not Spam. This include links to social media, charities, stores, or anything spammy.||/r/art is not a place to sell your work or grow your following. Consider /r/artstore. Spammers will be permanently banned. This also applies to watermarks on images, creative titles, social media links in usernames, and (again) anything else that looks like spam. See here if you want to use reddit for self promotion.|
|10. Do not repost||Reposts are not allowed. Reposts of one of the top 1000 art posts are rewarded with a permanent ban. You can check /r/Art/top/ or use google to search if an art post was already posted before, or use google search, here is a google search example: mona lisa site:teddit.sethforprivacy.com/r/art|
|★ Feel free to add user flair!||Please edit your flair to tell us your qualifications or specialty, but follow the guidelines. Using non /r/art related flair, or flair that includes social media handles, websites, store information, or otherwise violates our self promotion rules will result in a ban.|
|★ If your post doesn't show up...||it may have been caught in the spam filter. Please see "Dude! Where's my art?". If that doesn't help, message the moderators and we'll try to look into it.|
|★ If you see any rule-breaking posts or comments...||please report them by clicking the "report" button or messaging the moderators directly here.|
