What are the rules?
We don't have many, and most of them are common sense!

If you have any issues, please message our Moderators!

Rule 1. Commissioning art

If you are commissioning a piece, please include [Hiring] at the start of your post. You MUST provide a budget IN USD for how much you would be willing to pay for your artwork. If you’re not sure of the specific number, give a rough estimate of your budget.

Please be as specific as possible with your listing and provide as much useful information as possible about the specs of the project, including size, purpose, media, and deadline.

  • When you have found your artist, please comment on your post - ' Position Filled ' to announce that you are no longer looking. This will also lock your thread.

Rule 2. Payment and Pricing

We do not allow any budgets or prices that are below $30 per piece.

  • If you are purchasing a piece that requires commercial rights, the minimum is $100 USD - With that, we will also require that if you are looking for (Work For Hire) WFH / Full rights transfer of a commercial piece, the price should reflect that. On average, the cost of a full rights transfer is 200-300% of the creation cost. Our recommended industry entry level standard is $500 per piece to take over full ownership of the image. Anyone asking for full rights below that rate will be removed.

Please use a payment processor that has buyer and seller protection with the ability to include terms and conditions, a contract, and escrow or refund options. Sites with "Goods and services" options are the most common. This subreddit recommends Artistree for the protections of all parties involved There is NO reason to use a 'friends and family' money transfer with a stranger online. It's typical for the client to cover any payment fees or for the artist to include them in their pricing.

Contracts are STRONGLY recommended for additional protection of both artist and client. Every single time without question you should have a contract, no matter what.

If you have concerns with a transaction, report it to the moderators for investigation.

  • All “bitcoin” currencies are banned and will only be allowing ‘fiat money’ or real currency from now on. No gift cards, stocks, weird e-check scams, or fortnight points and so on. Artists should be able to pay all of their bills with the money they earn off the /r/HungryArtists subreddit. ALL NFT PROJECTS ARE INCLUDED - If you are purchasing the digital publishing rights or NFT rights of a piece of artwork , that is a different discussion that both parties should agree to and be paid for. Payment in NFTs, percentages, or digital coins does NOT count as payment under rule 2

Rule 3. SPEC work

Free work is not allowed.

Do NOT ask for artists to create any amount of work before agreeing to payment and hiring the artist. Every artist hired must receive payment or the project will be considered as speculative work

Competitions are not allowed. No 5-minute sketch samples. No unpaid 'tests'. No investment opportunities. No "I'll pay you when this gets funded".

  • Please report anyone seen asking for, offering, or making free artwork in an attempt to get the job.

Rule 4. Artist Portfolios

Artists, please include [For Hire] at the start of your post. Try to include price and image examples. Be clear on your ability to ship and shipping costs if applicable.

  • Your portfolio must not require login/account creation. (ex: Instagram without an additional link) Any kind of premade items links store page is not allowed on this subreddit. Post on /r/artstore instead.

  • Artists, while commenting, please do not undercut each other in the community. The client picked their budget for a reason and with an expectation of a quality that matches that budget or higher. We are a marketplace where price is flexible but going lower is never the answer.

Rule 5. Spam
You will be warned and subsequently banned if caught doing these spam offenses frequently:

  • Posting portfolios with no correlation to clients request, eg, the client asked for an oil painting and your portfolio is 100% logo design.

  • Posting the same copy-pasted response to client requests. Personalize and acknowledge you actually read the request.

  • Linking to sites that require an account.

If you see spam or have ANY concerns with a transaction, report it to the mods for investigation.

Rule 6. Posting Limits
Do not make more than one post per week . This ONLY applies to artists' FOR HIRE posts.

Deletion of posts is discouraged for recordkeeping purposes. If there is a need, the mods can lock a post upon request.

Rule 7. Supportive and professional conduct
Be supportive and professional. If someone is doing something wrong or needs some help, politely let them know, in PM if necessary. Comments negatively criticizing art portfolios openly will be banned.

No matter the user, please don't create a hostile environment by insulting or cursing. We expect everyone to be professional and use common courtesy. Use the report button and let us handle issues. Continual hostile activity will result in a ban from the sub.

Rule 8. Art Theft
Art theft will be tolerated under NO circumstances. Do not steal other's work or IP to copy or profit from. The client has a responsibility to make sure their reference images are legal to use for their commission. Artist Credit must be given where it is due, but is not seen as a valid form of payment.

Subreddit's stance on AI Art.

As always, rules are up to moderator discretion, so if someone is being an ass, they may see consequences even if they're just toeing the line.

If you do not see your post - ARTISTS ONLY

Please note that if you have a relatively new account or very low comment karma(<25), your posts will be caught in the spam filter- No posts under 25 karma will be approved. This is a preventive spam measure for people who have no interest in participating in our community.

Posts containing shortened URLs (such as bitly, tinyurl, and so on) will be automatically removed.

They are also amazing to work with and managed to incorporate every idea I wanted, and even incorporated small details I didn’t think would make it from the character sheet I gave."
