The Imaginary Network:
A multi-reddit of The Imaginary Network
This reddit community is for submitting your favorite pictorial art of characters from Fantasy, Sci-fi or Historical Fiction. For example, armored warriors, powerful wizards, deadly ninjas, intrepid archaeologists, starfighter pilots, badass gunslingers... all are welcome, as long as it's awesome, fantastic and human - or anything even close. Your post might inspire an illustrator, an author or someone's D&D campaign. No photos, please.
No images of mass-market characters, such as Batman, etc., unless they're reimagined or reinterpretations of them.
Please credit the artist by their real name and link to source. Please take 5 minutes to use Google Image Search or TinEye
Use the actual title of the artwork: Don't retitle an artist's piece, even if the relation between the title and the piece is unintuitive. Do not create a title for an untitled piece either.
No "Commission" info in titles
No links to collections of wallpapers or a portfolio: Please link to one image, and post a link to the gallery in the comments
Self-submissions: Flair reserved for artists posting their own work (Original Content/'OC'): Click the word 'flair' under your post's title then click 'Self-submission' and Save. Leave a comment about your piece. Warning: Self-promotion without community engagement may result in a ban.
