Here are some tips for making a thread. You should include the following if you have any of it:
You should provide a small introduction about yourself and a reason to why you're posting. Are you looking for criticism or are you just sharing your art work? Are you taking permanently taking requests or will you do request randomly? Or would you rather people suggest things for you to draw?
Some more suggestions.
-Update your thread regularly! Don't think no one is looking at your art because no one is responding.
-Reply to everyone in your thread! They took the time to comment on your work so you should take some time to respond to them.
-Make some friends! Visit other art threads and comment on other people's work. Don't be afraid to point out things that you think may be wrong in other people's images. There's two things that might happen: 1) that person might learn something or 2) you might learn something.
-Remember to have fun!
If you are making a thread specifically for commissions, you should post the following:
-Complete listings of your prices and what you are willing to draw
-Examples of EACH of your listings (You say you can draw a portrait style bust but you have never done one before?)
-A link to your full gallery (dA, FA, etc. I would NOT consider tumblr an art gallery)
-What payments you accept
-An e-mail address you can be directly contacted at
Essentially, if you wish to be posted under the Commissions block, you should put all that information in the first post of your thread or you will be put under the general gallery section.
Note that these have not been approved by the moderators and thus, are just general things the community have agreed upon kinda.
-If you have a request, please don't make a thread about it. There's a request section of artists who are more than willing to draw your requests.
-If you have a deep burning desire to make a request thread, go ahead and do so. All we would ask is to post all the information in your original post. Please no "Guys, I want x drawn. If anyone is interested, reply and I'll give you the information." Artists are more likely to draw whatever your request is if you give them the information up front.
-If you're looking for reaction pictures of your OC, you can do those yourself by using the numerous templates that are available. Consider it a learning experience.
-Don't be an flank. There's a difference between constructive criticism and bashing.
-Please keep your art to one thread. This also includes post about livestream. There's a livestream thread specifically to post these things. Any "Hey guys, I'm livestream @ livestream.com/idontread" will be reported for a lock and pending deletion.
-If you are starting to draw, please look over some guides and tutorials before posting. It's very exciting that you're starting to draw but sometimes, the guides and tutorials can give you more direct help than posting your very first art.
-If you are doing hand drawn art, it is better to scan the image then to take a picture. Trust me, we can wait a few hours for you to go scan your picture than seeing a low quality image.
-No one will look down upon you if you use guidelines or reference images so go ahead and use them.
Other general information:
The general consensus is for you to buy a Wacom tablet. Which one depends on
your wallet what you are looking for and how involved you are in art.
We use Photoshop (any version), PaintTool SAI, GIMP (free), paint.net (free), MyPaint (free) openCanvas (Free) and Correl Painter to draw.
We use Inkscape (free), Illustrator, Flash and Photoshop to do vectors.
Lastly, from now on, this thread will be updated every Sunday at 8:00 PM EST (unless I'm unavailable to reach my laptop).
