Hi, and welcome to ArtToBeBought - the place to find art to buy from the artists on dA.

About the group
ArtToBeBought is a group with the aim to make it possible for those interested in buying from artists on deviantART, to find art and art books of good quality for sale on the site. In other words a group for both buyers and sellers of all things art. This means that deviations that feature art books, arts and crafts, drawings, paintings, self published comics and other art forms that have physical form and are for sale will be collected in the group’s gallery and favourites.

Joining the group
Anyone can join the group. Just press the button marked Join our Group at the top of the page and you’ll become a member at once. Everyone is automatically accepted.

All gallery folders (except the Sold folder) are open for submission for all members. You can submit work made by yourself or by other deviants to be added to the group’s gallery, and you can submit 2 deviations per day. Please submit to the most specific folder that fits your deviation.

Submissions don't expire before one month after submission. Handling submissions take time, so please don't inquire about lack of response to your submission after the first few days.

The requirements for the gallery are that:
:bulletgreen: the item is of good quality.
:bulletgreen: the item is made in a physical medium.
:bulletgreen: the item can be clearly seen in the deviation.
:bulletgreen: it is stated in the artist’s comment that the item is currently for sale.
Prints and similar items not sold though the deviantART shop are welcomed too.

In other words, only deviations featuring items already made and currently for sale are accepted, not commissions for drawings, paintings and the like. The only exceptions are artisan crafts, if it is stated that the item shown in the deviation can be replicated.

Do not submit:
:bulletred: Adoptables.
:bulletred: Downloadable content.
:bulletred: Several deviations featuring the same item.
:bulletred: Items you are reselling.

The faves are not open for suggestions. If you think something belongs in the group, submit it to the gallery, and it will either be accepted there or added to the favourites.

The requirements for something being added to the favourites are the same as for the gallery with the exception that the quality requirements for the favourites are less strict.

The complete version of the Group Info can be found here:…

If you have any questions or suggestions or if something isn’t working as it should, don’t hesitate to send a note to me (I’ll see it faster that way than if you send it to the group) and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Hi, I have just declined 14 submissions to the Featured folder and 8 submissions submitted to the wrong folder.

If your deviation has just been declined without comment, it is because it was either of the above mentioned. You are welcome to resubmit it (to the most specific folder that fits your deviation), but please make sure that it fulfills the rest of the requirements.

The requirements for the ArtToBeBought gallery are that the work is finished and of good quality, made in a physical medium and that it is stated in the artist’s comment that it is currently for sale. Prints and similar things not sold though the deviantART shop are welcomed too. Adoptables and digital content for sale is not accepted.

(The Featured folder is mainly open so I can identify submissions where a deviant has forgotten to specify a folder that fits the deviation and not just accidentally chosen the wrong one.)

Thank you for your time, I hope you have a lovely day. :)

Hello~ I'm looking for someone who can make a plush based off my illustration.  I personally take drawing/digital art commissions, and sell prints, stickers, and other hand painted accessories in my shop, so a plush/art trade works too.

The 'plush' character is on my DA ID :) If anyone is interested please send a note or comment?

Thank you! >=<
