YOUR HP ART MUST BE POSTED IN YOUR LIVEJOURNAL FOR THE MODS TO SEE AT THE TIME YOU APPLY FOR MEMBERSHIP. IF THE MODS CANNOT FIND EVIDENCE IN YOUR LIVEJOURNAL THAT YOU ARE A HP ARTIST, YOUR REQUEST FOR MEMBERSHIP WILL BE DENIED. IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST BUT DO NOT POST YOUR WORK IN YOUR LIVEJOURNAL, PLEASE PM naadi WITH A LINK TO WHERE YOU DO POST YOUR WORK.
IF YOU ARE NOT AN ARTIST, YOU ARE VERY WELCOME TO CLICK THE "WATCH" LINK ABOVE TO ADD FRINGEART TO YOUR FRIENDS LIST. WE ARE VERY GLAD TO HAVE ANYONE WATCH THE COMMUNITY POSTS.
Please read ALL the user info BEFORE requesting membership.
A community promoting the art of new and established Harry Potter fan artists. Newbies are welcomed and highly encouraged! Here we'll discuss ideas and artistic methods too. Remember, the only dumb question is the one that wasn't asked....
Membership in HP Fringeart is open to all Harry Potter fanartists for posting Harry Potter fanart. You may have a short waiting period while we approve your membership since we like to visit and then welcome people. If we see that you are an active HP artist, don't worry, you'll get in! :D If you are not an artist, please feel free to watch the comm. All posts are unlocked and you will be able to view all the posted artwork even if you are not a posting member.
We do not allow solicitations for art or the posting of fanfiction. However, posting fest announcements that would be of interest to Harry Potter fanartists is allowed with prior permission of one of the mods. If you have an HP artist-related announcement but are not a member, please contact naadi by PM on LiveJournal or by email at naadi_moonfeather(at)hotmail(dot)com to make your request.
NC-17 work is not allowed. Please only post art rated G, PG, PG13, or R. Artistic nudity is fine, but sexually explicit scenes will not be allowed. We also request that you not link the comm to artwork posted in your own journal when the entry contains other links to NC-17 or sexually explicit fic or art. Please post your allowed rating art directly to the community if the entry in your own journal contains such links. Any NC-17 work that is posted will be removed and the member responsible will have posting access revoked until they have talked to the mods.
Work that contains photomanips must be accompanied by a statement that the photo(s) involved are used with permission of the copyright holder/photographer and with the permission of the subjects in the photo(s). Only original work that does not violate the copyrights of any source will be allowed. Work that contains stills from the HP movies, for example, are not allowed.
Please use the form below when posting art. Please put all art behind an LJ cut (it's ok to show a thumbnail pic in front of the cut though). If you're posting art for a challenge, please make a comment in the subject bar and use the appropriate tag.
Posting Format, just copy and paste!
<b>Artist:</b> <lj user=""> <b>Title:</b> <b>Characters:</b> <b>Rating:</b> (G-R only please) <b>Media used:</b> <b>For photomanips only: I have permission from the copyright holder to use their photograph(s) in my work, and permission to post the images of the people present in the photos.</b> (This statement must accompany all works of photomanipulation posted to this comm.) <b>Challenge Inspired art:</b> (yes or no, if yes please specify which challenge you used for inspiration) <b>Concrit?:</b> (yes or no) <b>Warnings:</b> (important for graphic images) <b>Notes/comments:</b>
Don't forget to tag: your LJ name (if you want people to be able to view all your posts at once), and challenge inspired tag (if art is inspired by a challenge)
I'll be giving all members a name tag. Whether or not you use it is up to you. If you currently don't have a tag and want one, please contact one of the mods.
Things are pretty free n easy here, however, meanness won't be tolerated; and rude, non-constructive comments will be deleted. Offenders will be booted off the comm or banned from commenting.
(Optional) Fill this out and put it in with your first post so we can know a little about you!

Challenge Inspired Art
In the past, hp_fringeart held a monthly challenge contest. That has been discontinued, but our list of challenge themes is an awesome resource for anyone who would like to challenge themselves or needs inspiration.
If you use one of the challenge themes to inspire your new art, and would like to have it saved in the Challenge Inspired Art gallery, please use the tag challege inspired on your post to the comm!
