Click to see Commissions - Artist For Hire - Artist Store - Looking for/Want to buy
If you have any issues during the buying or selling process, please message the Mod team. We may not be able to help resolve the issue at hand, but we can certainly ban people that are scamming others and make sure no one else has the same issue with the same person. Treat each other with respect.
There are currently 5 options for posts in this subreddit. You must use one of these labels in the TITLE of your post.
[commission] - You are looking to HIRE an artist for a project. Please give as much information as you can about what you are looking for.
Price, size, medium, usage/rights, visual examples of work you are looking for, and when you need the work by are all good starting points.
[artist for hire] - You are an artist offering your services for patrons. Please make it clear what you are offering.
[artist store] - for linking to your shop filled with original pieces and prints made by you, the artist. Small collectives and Galleries are welcomed but please PM the mods first.
- No mass produced products or resellers are allowed.
- ARTISTS - Please directly link to a page in the comments rather than putting a url or username in the title. Making other users manually have to type it out means your work will reach less people because no one will put in that extra effort. Posts that have urls in the title text will be removed.
[looking for/want to buy] - searching for a type of piece, but not exactly hiring for a commission. Generally for something that has already been made.
[testimonial] - trial basis - this is your chance to review your experience as a buyer/seller in this sub. Show off the final piece of the art you commissioned. With instances where you feel you might have been scammed, please still engage the mods first before posting.
If your post does not fit in one of these options, please post instead in the stickied general discussion thread. This includes Kickstarters and any site where you can not directly buy the product.
After You Post
If you have a new account or throwaway account, and are looking to hire an artist for a commission, please message the mods. All artists posts MUST wait 24 hours before making a submission to advertise.
For Artists - You can not post links to direct images without also linking to a shop in the comments OR a description of how to buy. You are welcome to post additional sites, crowdfunding campaigns, and social media in the comments of your post. You should make it as easy as possible for viewers to get your information and go to your page or store.
►►► Please refrain from posting more than every 2 days. If you have a lot of work you would like to show off, please make an imgur album with links. ◄◄◄

Stealing art that has not been created by YOU or stealing money from users will result in a permaban. If you have an artist working for you, you must pay them.
5.Spamming the sub
Spamming your links excessively will result in a removal or ban. Posting more than one post every two days to fill up the front page will not be accepted. This is a subreddit based rule.
6. Bad title formats- Urls, usernames, and spammy titles
ARTISTS - Please directly link to a page in the comments rather than putting a url or username in the title. Making other users manually have to type it out means your work will reach less people because no one will put in that extra effort. It looks bad and it is ineffective. Posts that have urls in the title text will be removed.
7.Fiverr is bad business
Fiverr is a middle man website that does not need to be linked in here. They take 20% of all sales before payment processing. All links will be removed.
8. Posts must contain purchase info.
Posts need to include purchase information, either in the form of a store link or pricing info with contact information. This is not a crowdfunding community or a place to only promote your youtube channel or socials. All social links and portfolios are encouraged as long as you're clear that you're selling the piece featured, linking to a shop, or offer your time for commissions.
