You are permitted one art thread per the medium you wish to use. For example, one thread about writing, and one about drawing.
If you want a topic closed for whatever reason, PM a GD or global mod to close it for you. You may also bump your threads once every 24 hours.
Please try not to overdo bumping or double posting, though we will allow it in this section. If your thread is becoming mostly bumps, it's a good idea to go back and delete previous bumps. :3

You may trade your art in exchange for DC dragons. (You may not trade other adoptables for DC dragons.)

A reminder to use your own work for Original Works. If you have used free lines, make sure to give credit in your first post. Any requests done, and especially any commissions done, must be completely original. The only exception is if someone drew something and wants you to color or sprite it, for example. They may not give you someone else's work to work with, though - it has to be their own, unless they have permission or are using free lines with credit.

Also, references are great learning tools, but tracing is not a learning tool and nor is it original work.

If you are found to be breaking this rule and are committing art theft, depending on circumstances, you could get a warn or your thread may be closed.

You all are beautiful artists. There's no need to steal when you can do it yourself. <3

If you didn't see the announcement in the artist permissions thread, now is a great time to go check it out: http://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=51554

TJ released an artist agreement a while back and permissions have now been updated to work with the agreement.

We've been getting more and more reports on this, so I just want to take a moment to clarify. By "your work must be original" I simply meant the work should be your own and you have to have permission to edit any art that you are editing. It's fine to have a pokemon splice thread, for example. It's not fine to have a thread where you trace works of art from other artists and claim them as your own or give credits but don't have permission to trace. It's fine to use dragcave art (without editing besides cropping) in your avatars, but it's not fine to take art from another site without permission and ask someone to edit it (such as giving it a top hat or whatever).

The art you are doing should be your own work - whether a completely new product or an edit of some kind - and if you are using someone else's art you need to have the artist's permission and ideally it should be them who is asking for you to edit their work.
