Weekly Feature

Every week The Traditional Figure will select and highlight 4 exceptional works, one in each media category, for our Featured section. If you think one of our affiliated artists' work deserves this recognition, please submit the work for consideration under the featured category or add the recommendation in the comments section.
We are temporarily placing a hold on submissions due to crisis' in the admin's life which is preventing reliable operation (y'all deserve better!).  We will be seeking additional help with the group so that we can get your amazing submissions and features (and maybe even contests!) back on track.  If you're interested in becoming an admin and assisting us with our submission approval and feature process (we need reliable help!) please send our founder, AlisonS11605 (, a note.  Hopefully, our awesome DA community will get our backs and we'll be back in action soon!  

Thanks for your patience and support!

Group Info

The Traditional Figure is a group for traditional artists representing the figure. The group defines traditional artists as those working in non-digital media (such as wet and dry media like oil painting, conte drawings, etc). The group also only focuses on the figure in art. Therefore, our only focus is these elements and uniting/ highlighting artists working in there parameters. We welcome artists and artwork who fall into this category to join and submit work!

If you're submitting work please make sure you submit a visible, clear scan or photograph. We will not accept pieces that are not presented in a clear and professional manner.

Again this group is for traditional figurative art. We will not accept non-humans, animals, anime, cartoons, landscapes, still lifes, and the like. Our intent is to form a group with a specific goal so as to bring together an artist community of like artists to learn from, encourage, appreciate and critique each others work.
