THIS GROUP IS FOR ART PAINTED WITH REAL BLOOD. DIGITAL ART DOES NOT USE REAL BLOOD.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT DIGITAL ART OR PHOTOGRAPHY.
Welcome to BloodPainters, a group created to showcase all of the art painted with real blood. Before making a submission, please read below. Read our FAQ here.
Only members may submit art. To do so, first join as a member - not a contributor, click the "Gallery" tab at the top of the page and click "Submit to this gallery" once there. Do not submit it as a favourite.
All submissions here must be works that are done partially or entirely with real blood. Art that depicts blood using paint or other media is not allowed. Any subject or theme is allowed.
Blood smeared on a page, photography (whether it is of bloody items or not), and so on will be rejected in most cases. Paintings with little effort other than "this is blood on a page" will also be rejected.
Poor quality pictures of paintings will be rejected as it is seen fit. Here are some tips to get a higher quality picture.
We do not promote or endorse self-harm. Please do not submit obvious self harm as this is not only against DeviantArt rules, but against the group's as well. Submissions that appear to promote self harming behaviors will be rejected or deleted. Need help?
Images that include physical means to harm oneself (real razors, blade, etc.) are not allowed and will be denied or deleted.
You are allowed to make three submissions per day. This is subject to change at any time.
Please submit to the "Main Gallery" folder. Submitting pieces to "Featured" is not allowed.
