BOARD GUIDE: Welcome! - NEW Rules | Threads | Intros | Questions | UPDATED Apr 26, 2017 (Please POST ALL NEW THREADS HERE)

Thanks for joining us here on the Fan Art board!
We are happy to have you here and look forward
to seeing your artwork, or just to have you hanging around.
The official Fan Forum rules are topped in the site-wide announcement.
Please make sure that you have read and understand these rules,
in addition to our Fan Art board rules, which are stated below.
If you have any questions, this is the place to ask. Please read
and reply before you begin posting.

Please feel so free to private message any of us,
if you have any problems or concerns. Have a great time
on this board!

Your Moderators,
Si & Paula

1. Please consult this thread for an existing thread on the topic before starting a new thread.

2. Please do not quote pictures. It makes it difficult for posters with a slow internet connection to fully load their pages. If you would like to quote someone's art, please erase the image tags so that just the link is left.

3. Images larger than 800 pixels in width should not be posted. This will cause the message board borders in the average screen resolution to stretch, making the thread difficult to navigate. Please make thumbnails/post text links/put it under spoiler tags or your post will be edited.

4. There is a limit of 35 images/smilies per post, including OPs. The only exception is if you have a batch of icons that surpass that, please post them behind a Spoiler Tags.

5. Feedback is not obligatory, but it's very much welcome. I'm sure you all like to hear a word or two about your work. Constructive criticism is welcome too.

6. Lurking is okay, but posting is even better. If you don't have any arts to share, or don't have comments to make, please join us on the Off-Topic Chat thread.

Please fill out this form about yourself.
We'd love to get to know you better.
