This forum is for the posting, sharing and discussion of graphics, artwork and other visual imagery. Due to the nature of the medium, we're going to have to be a bit more restrictive than the writing forum when it comes to the sort of content you're allowed to post in here.
The following are examples of imagery that are absolutely not allowed
- Pornography; graphic depictions of sex or nudity
- Graphic depictions or photos of gore, bodily waste, or other such imagery intended to generate shock or disgust
- Illegal content; ex. bestiality or child pornography
Posting any of these things even once
could easily be a bannable offense. Tread carefully. If you're unsure whether the image you want to post fits any of these criteria, ask a moderator or staff member before posting it.
Having said that, certain images or works of art which feature some
degree of sexual and/or "mature" content may
be allowed, on a case-by-case basis, IF certain requirements are met. Those conditions being the prior approval of a moderator or admin, AND an "explicit content" warning in your post's subject heading. Using the [spoiler] tags around the image itself would also be advisable. Posting such material without meeting both of these conditions could get you banned,
so tread carefully.
Also, this should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway: do not, under any circumstances steal, plagiarize, copy or make any other uses of another member's work without their explicit permission.
As with the Creative Writing forum, all
members are strongly encouraged to give feedback to any and all artists who post their work here, regardless of what you might think of your own personal artistic ability.
Lastly, we prefer that you use off-site hotlinking resources such as Photobucket
to host your images, for the purpose of conserving site bandwidth. (If you are unsure what this means or how to do it, just ask.) For the same reason, this forum will be subject to more frequent pruning than the other forums.
As long as you keep these rules in mind, your only other limit should be the power of your imagination. We look forward to seeing your work!
