[IMPORTANT!] Additional Rules for Art

Recommended Posts

Denivire    6

It has come to my attention there is no official Rules set up for the art sections of the forum, as one's own art is a sensitive topic for many people. These rules are here as added protection, special rules if you will.

Rules are simple:

1) Positive or Constructive Criticism Only. It is one thing to let people know their piece needs work, it is another thing to tell them they suck at art. It is ok if you don't like their work, we promote criticism, it's just telling people "It looks like crap, never draw again" is not appropriate. Try to give suggestions, rather than insults. We also promote telling people more than "It's awesome!" or "Great Job!" if you can. Telling someone the reasons why you liked a piece is just as helpful as suggestions for improvement!

2) When POSTING: Keep it Appropriate. Do not post any images that can deemed inappropriate. This includes anything pornographic, or morally wrong.

3) Try to Keep the Collection Clean. Although it is nice to see a lot of art from one person, it is preferred if it is cleaned up and/or organized. Adding another post after your initial one as a placeholder to place older images within, or making an album on a website to host your images and linking to that site are some great ways to keep the place clean. The Spoiler is another great way to keep it simple. Remember you can always edit your initial post, and add more in!

[Rules are susceptible to change in accordance to time and behavior.]

The other regular rules also apply (such as no spamming), so let's hope people keep it clean and friendly in here. After all, we are here to have fun, and get opinions, right? :D

That doesn't make sense... so people can only say good things about others art? We should at least be able to say that we don't like it, but not in a mean way.

That's the point. You can still say that it needs work and/or that you don't like, but the idea is you don't need to be a jerk about it. Be helpful and kind when you check others work.

Example :D

The better way:I really think this area needs more editing and it's ok but needs more things

The bad way:Your art sucks and you fail at art.NEVER MAKE ART AGAIN!!!

See what I mean :)

Bad art = Innopropriate Art | <--- Essentially, thats what it means to me.

 

I don't think that's quite it. Inappropriate art isn't the same as bad art, because then would you consider Cubism inappropriate?

The thing about art is that even if it looks bad to one person, it looks like something else to another. And I don't really think inappropriate art is even a thing, sure there's art that's adult-themed but it's in the human nature to try new things and explore them.
