Hi, and welcome to ArtToBeBought - the place to find art to buy from the artists on dA.
About the group
ArtToBeBought is a group with the aim to make it possible for those interested in buying from artists on deviantART, to find art and art books of good quality for sale on the site. In other words a group for both buyers and sellers of all things art. This means that deviations that feature art books, arts and crafts, drawings, paintings, self published comics and other art forms that have physical form and are for sale will be collected in the group’s gallery and favourites.
Joining the group
Anyone can join the group. Just press the button marked Join our Group at the top of the page and you’ll become a member at once. Everyone is automatically accepted.
All gallery folders (except the Sold folder) are open for submission for all members. You can submit work made by yourself or by other deviants to be added to the group’s gallery, and you can submit 2 deviations per day. Please submit to the most specific folder that fits your deviation.
Submissions don't expire before one month after submission. Handling submissions take time, so please don't inquire about lack of response to your submission after the first few days.
The requirements for the gallery are that:
the item is of good quality.
the item is made in a physical medium.
the item can be clearly seen in the deviation.
it is stated in the artist’s comment that the item is currently for sale.
Prints and similar items not sold though the deviantART shop are welcomed too.
In other words, only deviations featuring items already made and currently for sale are accepted, not commissions for drawings, paintings and the like. The only exceptions are artisan crafts, if it is stated that the item shown in the deviation can be replicated.
Do not submit:
Several deviations featuring the same item.
Items you are reselling.
The faves are not open for suggestions. If you think something belongs in the group, submit it to the gallery, and it will either be accepted there or added to the favourites.
The requirements for something being added to the favourites are the same as for the gallery with the exception that the quality requirements for the favourites are less strict.

If you have any questions or suggestions or if something isn’t working as it should, don’t hesitate to send a note to me (I’ll see it faster that way than if you send it to the group) and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
