Paintings and drawings that boggle the mind.

Paintings and drawings that boggle the mind.

The Imaginary Network Expanded (INE) is a network of art sharing subreddits ranging from broad in subject to very specific. It is the goal of the INE to share, inspire, discuss and appreciate static image paintings, drawings, and digital art while maintaining artist credit and source links.


Rules (See All):

1) Submit credited, sourced paintings and drawings.

a. Follow title format: Art Title by Artist Name. Add no other info, except if to tag as OC.

b. Comment with an artist published website link. We want to drive some traffic to the creators!

c. Traditional paintings and drawings only. No videos, screenshots, photography, audio, multi-panel comics, content generated or AI-assisted submissions.

d. Posting your own work? See our best practices for submitting OC.

e. Requests, meta, and discussion should be posted to /r/ImaginaryNetwork.

2) Make quality submissions.

a. Do repost something that was posted to this subreddit less than three months ago, or is currently in the top 100 posts of all time. Use the search function before you post.

b. No collections, galleries or other multi-image submissions. Instead, submit your favorite image and link the rest in the comments.

c. Don't look spammy. Do not post to the same subreddit more than twice a day. No more than one crosspost per day.

d. Low resolution images may be removed. Images that contain too much background, text, or advertisement may be removed. Images must be submitted in the correct orientation. Submissions should not be more than 25% text. Text should not be necessary to understand the context of an image.

e. The scope of this sub is based on "what you see in the picture." The subject needs to be identifiable by the art alone, without descriptive title or any knowledge of lore.

f. Content should first glorify the subreddit subject matter. Hypersexualized characters should not be a main focal point. NSFW submissions should be limited to approx 1 in 10 per user.

g. Images of or titles mentioning merchandise are not allowed. No submission links to storefronts. Instead, link that info in the comments section.

3) This sub focuses on art appreciation.

a. All comments must be phrased respectfully. No name calling.

b. No dirty birdies or body-shaming. Low effort negativity may be removed.
