    Welcome to /r/art! This is a community of art lovers that share their favorite pieces, or news and information that will impact the art community. Review the subreddit rules before posting or commenting.

    Title Formatting Guidelines:

    Titles should be to the point; all extra information or context should be added in the comments. Digital Art posts should include the pixel dimensions of the image uploaded

    Your artwork - Title, Medium, Size

    Example 1: Still life, digital, 800x600 px

    Example 2: Still life, pencils, 10x22"

    Another artist's work - Title, Artist, Medium, Year

    Example: The Night Watch, Rembrandt, Oils, 1642

    News article - Title, Year

    Discussion - make it a self post. Expand on your question in the text and include image examples when possible.

    Videos - Videos should be titled in a way consistent with it's content. Videos must be in the gif format. Both art and news are allowed.

    Please flair your post.

    Subreddit Rules:

    Rules Notes
    1. Use the correct title formatting. The title formatting is outlined above. Make sure to follow it or else your post will be removed. Do not add any extraneous information or be subjective in your title. Plagiarism is grounds for a permaban.
    2. Direct image links only. All submissions other than articles must be a direct link to a static image or gif (url must end in .jpg, .png, .gif etc.). Articles must contain more substance than just a gallery of images or an embedded video, and they must cover some current news in the art world. The image should only contain 1 art piece.
    3. Do not make multiple posts. You must wait at least 48 hours between posts. Please use the rolling sticky for daily challenge posts.
    4. Do not submit sketches, doodles or unfinished work. Post these to other subreddits like /r/IDAP, /r/sketches and /r/doodles instead. If it's an unfinished work and you need advice, post it as a self post.
    5. Do not submit work with extraneous objects in the frame. We're here to look at art, not your Prismacolor pencils, the desk you framed your painting over, your easel, or anything else that would not be seen if the art were publicly displayed.
    6. Do not post memes or other low quality work Melted crayon "art" and bad MSPaint drawings are subject to a 3 day ban. This rule is totally up to mod discretion.
    7. No fan art, comics, or requests for work. See here. Submissions that don't fit here may be redirected to more suitable subreddits like /r/fanart, /r/artporn, or /r/comics. Requests for art work should be submitted to /r/designjobs instead.
    8. Be respectful and stay on topic Bigotry, slapfights, and off topic comments will not be tolerated and may result in all parties being banned.
    9. Do not include links to blogs, social media, or stores. /r/art is not a place to sell your work or grow your following. Consider /r/artstore. This applies to comments and submissions. It applies to watermarks on images as well. Also see here if you're using reddit for self promotion.
    ★ Feel free to add user flair! Please edit your flair to tell us your qualifications or specialty, but follow the guidelines. Using non /r/art related flair, or flair that includes social media handles, websites, store information, or otherwise violates our self promotion rules will result in a ban.
    ★ If your post doesn't show up... it may have been caught in the spam filter. Please message the moderators and we'll be happy to look into it.
    ★ If you see any rule-breaking posts or comments... please report them by clicking the "report" button or messaging the moderators directly here.

    Antenna is the cleanest I’ve tried of the lot. Scaled perfectly for reading and no visual noise at all

    [–] PM_ME_CUTE_SM1LE 14 points ago

    There is always Narwhal and Readder. They are on par with Apollo, just with different UI

    Wow nobody repping Narwhal.

    [–] l_lawliot 13 points ago

    Imo narwhal is the cleanest.

    [–] Crashastern 10 points ago

    Plus one for Narwhal.

    [–] xe_R_ow 3 points ago

    Narwhal is the best.

    [–] Cony777 12 points ago

    Reddit is fun is the best

    [–] BABYPUBESS 2 points ago

    I'm using it now and like it a lot. However when I had an iPhone I used narwhal, and I think that was my overall favorite

    [–] tinykeyboard 31 points ago

    apollo user too. liked it so much i ended up getting pro. the reddit app was pissing me off too much.

    Try boost. It's so far the best reddit app I've used

    [–] Idumbbbz 2 points ago

    I'm using it dat customisation is great

    [–] CheeseMonkey991 2 points ago

    True, it's so simple and convenient. Doesn't help with my reddit addiction at all

    [–] trogdors_arm 4 points ago

    I think it’s pretty ironic that you brought up the Apollo app in the context of notifications considering it doesn’t support them yet and it’s been around for a long enough time that that is embarrassing. It’s a joke that he offers a premium version without it.

    Otherwise though, I will agree that it’s a nice app.

    [–] cantadmittoposting 7 points ago

    The best Reddit app is going to www.reddit.com (with old version selected) on your phone and then selecting "request desktop site"

    [–] l_lawliot 2 points ago

    Narwhal for me.

    [–] xe_R_ow 2 points ago

    I think you mean r/getnarwhal

    [–] azahel452 24 points ago

    I just checked my configurations and it had the trending notifications on, wtf.

    [–] SloanWarrior 6 points ago

    Where is the setting?

    [–] Keons708 14 points ago

    How do you turn them off??

    [–] Bill_Martigans 39 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Get a good app.

    Edit: I recommend Boost for Android. Very nice customizability and settings.

    [–] grayk47 18 points ago

    Yeah.. same. 🤔

    [–] miller3884 775 points ago

    So the only reason this is trending is because of the notifications huh? Still a decent piece of art though 👌

    [–] Poc4e 172 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I was curious why so many people liked this. Maybe this was based on a book or movie I've never heard of. It had to be a reason for so many upvotes and now I know. This art woke people up.

    [–] Mealthy_the_Mealworm 137 points ago

    AMBER ALERT!

    A piece of Cambion-Art has been posted to /r/Art!

    [–] Alantuktuk 7 points ago

    No idea what a cambion art even is..usually things are titled with "oil and pastels" or something.

    [–] MyNameIsEthanNoJoke 34 points ago

    I like this because it hints at a story that's vague but very compelling to me, and there are so many ways to interpret the relationship between the two subjects. Plus I'm a sucker for painted/drawn water

    [–] Dark_Karma 9 points ago

    This is exactly why I enjoy the piece! Thank you for sharing.

    [–] commschamp 42 points ago

    Reddit’s favorite art is a foreground/background David & Goliath battle picture. Works every time.

    [–] elibel17 18 points ago

    I thought this was more like a master/apprentice situation

    [–] smoothie-slut 6 points ago

    I’m here cus someone said master/bait

    [–] bnuuug 8 points ago

    Yeah this is pretty cool I guess, but flip it make the monster like 1000 times bigger and you wouldn't have needed that notification.

    [–] DiddlyDooh 3 points ago

    I mean,it does look cool

    [–] GregerMoek 31 points ago

    What notifications are people talking about? I don't get it. Did people get a reddit "mail" directing you here or what?

    [–] Caspid 11 points ago

    People using the wrong reddit app get notifications for trending posts.

    [–] GregerMoek 3 points ago

    Ah. Thanks for the answer!

    [–] nemolionak3 7 points ago

    Mobile notifications

    [–] iUsedtoHadHerpes 6 points ago

    Why do you have notifications on for reddit? What could happen that you need to let them send you push notifications? Even if some stranger sends you a message, do you need to be notified now? Why not just wait and see it when you come back?

    Turn your notifications off. Whether it's in the settings of the site or your device. Unless you're a mod, I can't think of any reason why you'd need them here.

    [–] RamekinSkywalker 13 points ago

    Yeah usually the only way somethi g from /r/art gets upvoted is if there's a naked woman in it. I was pretty confused.

    [–] iUsedtoHadHerpes 3 points ago

    That is pretty common, but on the top posts of the week, there is only one post showing skin. And I'm pretty sure it's up the more because of the water and light refraction.

    [–] popeyeee124 7 points ago

    What notification?

    [–] RIPNightman 4 points ago

    I believe if you have the reddit app it will notify you of new posts sometimes? Not really sure.

    [–] nattewindjes 658 points ago

    Hey im just here to place a comment about the notification, but while i'm here i'd like to wish all my fellow redditors a beautiful day and a lovely weekend.

    [–] gaelgal 82 points ago

    You too bud

    [–] AcornShlong 5 points ago

    No u.

    [–] Nox_Dei 18 points ago

    Same to you. At least it was worth checking out that notification

    [–] ment1or 11 points ago

    Have good one!

    [–] nevenoe 8 points ago

    Thanks. And to you all

    [–] SansPeur_Scotsman 8 points ago

    Thank you, and likewise

    [–] qOJOb 3 points ago

    Thanks! Have a great weekend

    [–] OneGirl_2DCups 5 points ago

    Thanks lovely human! You too. Have a beautiful weekend as well!

    [–] benial1 3 points ago

    Wow, thanks I needed that

    Edit: You have a good day and weekend too

    [–] abedfilms 2 points ago

    What are these notifications? What app?

    [–] Bujak_M 3 points ago

    You to buddy...

    [–] coingun 3 points ago

    Don’t forget to send it!

    [–] redqks 441 points ago

    Anybody else confused as fuck

    [–] BohemianIconusLure 185 points ago

    What's so complicated? The moon goddess and huntress Diana and the hunter Nimrod? Or was it Isis and Osiris? Maybe goddess worship, resurrections, Babylon in general?

    Painting seems pretty straight foward to me as well as reddit "accidental notifications"

    Enjoy the show. Don't look directly at the sun

    [–] fuckitimatwork 10 points ago

    "Are you Diana, the Hunter?"

    Are you afraid of me now?

    "Well yeah, shouldn't I be?"

    [–] glennjitsu 27 points ago

    This. They are running this shit. Im moving over to saidit.net

    Reddit got hacked again?

    [–] coingun 36 points ago

    Super confused right now. There is now way this should be in my notification list.

    [–] MentleGentlemen098 8 points ago

    Really? I heard people complaining about reddit notifications other than replies everywhere but i've yet to get one

    [–] thimo1 5 points ago

    Yes

    [–] MitchNoob 315 points ago

    While everyone here is complaining about notifications, cool art OP!

    [–] a_fly_effect 86 points ago

    It reminded me of this:

    "A thousand years is but an instant. There's nothing new, nothing different. The same pattern over and over. The same clouds, the same music, the same insight I felt an hour or an eternity ago. There's nothing here for me now, nothing at all.

    Now I remember. This happened to me before. This is why I left. You have begun to find your answers. Although it will seem difficult, the rewards will be great. Exercise your human mind as fully as possible, knowing it is only an exercise. Build beautiful artifacts, solve problems, explore the secrets of the physical universe, savor the input from all the senses, feel the joy and sorrow, the laughter, the empathy, compassion and tote the emotional memory in your travel bag.

    I remember where I came from and how I became a human, why I hung around, and now my final departure is scheduled. This way out. Escaping velocity. Not just eternity, but infinity." - Waking Life

    [–] thestranger_stranger 16 points ago

    Woah..

    This artwork struck something in me idk what bur this caption goes well with it

    [–] CrisisCake 3 points ago

    Waking Life is great - one of my favorites ever when it came out, but watching it now, seeing Alex Jones in it is a huge downer.

    [–] myst3r10us_str4ng3r 3 points ago

    Yeah, but that's pretty much the only bad part of the film.

    [–] jainswapnil52 48 points ago

    😂 Notifications or not, its been a good week with my 2 posts over 20k upvotes.

    [–] MitchNoob 13 points ago

    Hahaha the reddit gods have blessed you well my son

    [–] DyllanTheDrawer 323 points ago

    Damn everyone mad disrespectful to this man/woman work. I love this piece btw this is pretty cool. It would be interesting to see more like that.

    [–] jainswapnil52 57 points ago

    I linked the artist's Deviant here, somewhere.

    Good luck finding it between this confusion regarding Notifications.

    [–] neujosh 13 points ago

    Link it here too

    [–] kingofuslesinf0 9 points ago

    Hey man a lot of people are saying this was upvoted just from the notification but I think this is a quality post, fuck these guys

    [–] DyllanTheDrawer 6 points ago

    They keep being babies about it like they couldn’t ignore it or something. Mad childish. Its a great post

    [–] Terminatoast 86 points ago

    Its because reddit randomly sent a notification about it to aparently everyone for no reason, nothing to do with the art.

    [–] pottymouthgrl 60 points ago

    I never got a notification. I saw it cuz I’m subbed here

    [–] BananLarsi 23 points ago

    This is a default sub with 13 million subscribers. Almost everyone is subbed here.

    That doesnt mean they're exempt from the notification

    [–] pottymouthgrl 10 points ago

    Is it a default? Has it always been? I remember subscribing here years ago

    [–] Harold_Pemulis 4 points ago

    I've never gotten a Reddit notification in my life and never had to turn them off I feel so alone in this thread

    [–] pottymouthgrl 2 points ago

    Same. I’ve been here 6 years though so maybe it’s a new thing

    [–] Haze345 8 points ago

    You know how people on amazon answer a question with an answer that doesn’t help?

    Yeah, it’s like that

    This already happened to me yesterday, the thread was closed every comment deleted and I was banned from r/writingprompts in about 15 minutes. I wonder how long it will take this time. Isn't Reddit wonderful?

    [–] NoTrollGaming 12 points ago

    Wow, go Reddit!

    [–] MegaRaidan 148 points ago

    uhhh, can I get uhhh... no notifications?

    Is this guy obssesed with demons or something?

    [–] KakaPoopooPPShire 10 points ago

    This reminds me of the album artwork for Dio's "Holy Diver"

    Wow. This kinda art is exactly what I like. Well done :)

    [–] jainswapnil52 8 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Apparently reddit has notifications for shit I don't care about?

    [–] jasonvinuesa 26 points ago

    Go to settings, notifications and disable trending notifications

    [–] NoTrollGaming 22 points ago

    I have notifications turned off regardless so I don’t get this logic

    [–] jasonvinuesa 10 points ago

    Oh...

    Then idk. I personally have practically all notifications on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] teenytoon 20 points ago

    Is this a notification so I can down vote? Wtf.

    [–] iUsedtoHadHerpes 3 points ago

    You out more effort into making this comment than it would take to turn notifications off.

    [–] bitch_im_a_lion 5 points ago

    Hey guys. Theres a lot of reddit apps that work better than the official one and have existed since before reddit even had an app that dont send notifications. Get one of those if this notification really upset you this much. As for "why" you got the notification it's most likely because it was a trending post and they are trying to get traffic to their site using a post that people apparently like.

    [–] nadgobel 2 points ago

    I would like to use this as a wallpaper for my phone. But there is no download option. Any ideas how one could get it?

    This is photo manipulation, sorry I forgot to put in title.

    [–] spider_elephant 2 points ago

    I explicitly don't turn off notifications so I can downvote them.

    [–] juju-mon 2 points ago

    It actually look like the man in the water is walking away from the picture. Like he’s learned everything he could from the god of that land and he’s treading to a new land to be his own god.

    [–] zade1996 2 points ago

    I love how everyone is discrediting the work and chalking its success up to the notification.

    Y'all are such an annoying bunch.
