Invite your friends, invite your favourite artists, invite whoever you're commissioning to come check this place out! will shut down in 3 months on October 6.

it’s appreciation month for my patrons! First up we’ve got an awkward prom photo featuring Daio and @[email protected] excellent character Fred, a fire genasi! The antlers make for some precarious eye dodging! But look at those smiles! 👌🏾🎊 thanks for your support, grape!

Man oh man. I remember making this, I spent hours on it and ended up not even liking it. It didn’t have a lot of notes...But I went through my old art tumblr and..
It’s not bad! Social media really did a number on my confidence and I’m really working hard to restore it...

Art Alley's code of conduct has just been rewritten, borrowing a lot from Pillowfort's terms of use. There are no effective changes, but it is more detailed.

It can be viewed here:

Line by line difference to the previous version can be viewed here for 7 days:

There should be nothing objectionable in this rewrite but feedback is welcome.

Had to move artalley to a different hosting provider because it turns out they never allowed adult content in the first place. It took a while longer than anticipated. Apologies for the downtime.

Attempt to contact admins over e-mail was unsuccessful, so posting receipts here. Here is the original report we received (name of artist redacted), and a private exchange with whalefall. The comment mentions nazi imagery, but none could be found in the reported post, or in other posts at the time we checked the account (if a post that was reported was deleted, it would still appear on the report). Drawings did not seem to depict minors. (4/-)

Show thread was meant to provide a home for a community of artists that is more friendly to adult content than commercial platforms but more clean and safe than other adult websites, and was never anything more than a hobby project motivated only by the joy it brought its users. But if it will not be possible to undo the damage caused by this incident, then there will be no reason to keep it going, and it will be shut down. (3/-)

Show thread

Unfortunately whalefall did not include the receipts of our conversation in the post talking about our policies, summarizing it instead in more vague terms that made the situation look far more ominous than it was. In the end it is just one account in question and we didn't have a reason to review those policies previously. We have reached out to the admin to try and clarify the situation, but it is very difficult to fix rumours once they start circulating. (2/-)

Show thread

To comment on ongoing discussions about, sexual depictions of minors are absolutely not allowed here. Until now the guiding principle of this rule enforcement was physical appearance of characters rather than specific knowledge of various canons. If a character has the body of an adult, it is an adult, and if the character has the body of a minor, it is a minor, even if the canon claims it is a 500 year old dragon. (1/-)

First post! This is one of my earliest porcelain pieces, before and after glazing.

Welcome to all the artists who recently joined the Fediverse!
If you are an artist and a woman, you may tell me so I can follow you and boost your art. Also, you may want to tag your creations with the hashtag #WomensArt to make it easier for others to find them.

My first post! Sweetest Moon 3/4th Top. Made from an upcycled cotton t-shirt and completely handsewn and embroidered.

Anyone on here that came from Instagram during the strike?

To save my hand I mass-printed some thank you cards. Hopefully the big cartel ends up being worth all this effort.
