Newgrounds Wiki: Art Guidelines

In addition to the rules outlined in our Terms of Use:

Photography is not allowed in either public or private galleries. We prefer to keep the spotlight on hand-made works. Photographs of sculptures, paintings or other hand-made items are acceptable.

You must be the owner and creator of the work you are submitting. If you are not the creator but you commissioned the piece and have full rights to publish it, it would still be preferred that you have the artist upload it under their account and credit your as the commissioner.

If you commissioned the piece, have full publishing rights and will only allow the piece under your account, you must credit the artist and include links to their Newgrounds or other on-line gallery account.

Do not submit images made from public files (such as scene creators). Content created using 'scene creator' programs does not count as your creation. The artist who created the game also created the pieces, so the art is considered to be their work.

This includes art made with Source Filmmaker; if you did not create the character models, please do not share your piece in the Art Portal.

Similarly, please do not submit images where you have added captions or stories over someone else's artwork.

You may submit collages with photographic elements, providing they constitute a new work of art.

Artwork may be flagged as Inappropriate if:

- It depicts a sexually suggestive image of a child (note: this judgement is based on the image alone, regardless of whether you say the subject is 18+ in the comments).

- It promotes hate towards a race or sexuality.

- You are bullying another user.

- It mostly consists of unmodified text. Typography is allowed, as is text in comics or story pieces.

Please make your best effort to rate your art appropriately.
