Traditional Art Hub



Welcome to Traditionalists

This group is aimed at giving the traditional art community their own unique voice by giving the traditionalists a place to gather, showcase their work, organize, and inform others with the help and guidance of the traditional Community Volunteer team.

:bulletred: Members
    Membership is open to anyone and approval is automatic.

:bulletred: Gallery Submissions Rules
  • Your artwork must be 100% Traditional (no digital coloring).
  • We do allow minimal digital enhancements to your piece such as editing the scan or photograph of your piece (brightness/cropping) or adding a watermark.
  • You may submit one artwork per week, per folder. We look for quality and therefore don't accept every artwork submitted.
  • Artworks must be presented properly. The majority of the scan/photograph must contain the piece with minimal to no background in the photo. Also, no art utensils should be shown in your photograph or scan so as to put the focus solely on the art.
  • Nudity must conform to DeviantArt's rules and must be tasteful. Fetish artworks are not allowed. Mature submissions are voted on at the discretion of the admins (the traditional art CVs).
  • Artworks must be uploaded to the Traditional Art gallery. For example, artworks submitted to Cartoons & Comics > Traditional Art will not be accepted.
  • If a watermark is present in the artwork, it must not obstruct the content of the piece.
  • Submit your artworks to the appropriate gallery folder; for instance, a painting should go in the Painting folder and an installation art piece would go into the Other folder.
  • The other folder is where you'd upload anything that isn't a painting, drawing, mixed media, or sculpture.
  • Works In Progress (WIPs) can be submitted to the group's Favorites section. Sketches also belong in Favourites rather than our gallery, and can be submitted to the Sketches favourites folder.

:bulletred: Favourites
    Your may submit your Works In Progress (WIPs) to the WIPs favourites folder. You may also submit your Sketches to the Sketches favourites folder!

:bulletred: Article Contribution
    We accept article contributions from any member of the community.
    Your contribution must be centered around traditional art or the traditional art community on DA.
    Your contribution must adhere to DA's etiquette statement and Terms of Service.
    To contribute, simply note our group with a brief proposal of your idea. Once approved, we will promote you to contributor status and provide you with any needed support. After the article has been posted all Contributors will be demoted back to Member status unless otherwise noted.

Please, enjoy your time here!

How to Suggest a Traditional Art DD

Welcome to Traditionalists
The art hub and home of all things

If you would like to make a DD Suggestion,
please send a note to TokyoMoonlight, brennennn or Moonbeam13

Abstract & Surreal Traditional Art DD Suggestions
should be sent to JustACapharnaum

Please read before you submit your art



Since Traditionalists is the official Traditional Art group representing the Traditional gallery at large, we try to provide a place in our gallery for traditional artworks which inspire other artists to improve their art skills. That’s why we accept only artworks that are of a certain quality level.

We judge the skill, the quality, effort and the overall impression of the submitted art. We accept art that suits the group's gallery and rules, not our own personal taste.

In case your artwork gets rejected based on quality, please don't be offended or ashamed.

We are all here to learn and to grow. Clefairy :love: by ClefairyKid
