Hi, everyone! Welcome to /v/NatureIllustration, a subverse devoted to all kinds of scientific illustration, botanical illustration, and more. From 17th century botanical drawings, to modern depictions of astronomical objects, we welcome all kinds of artwork depicting science and nature.
Please feel free to contribute some content!
Here's some general guidelines about what kinds of artwork would be perfect for this little subverse of mine.
Stuff You Should Totally Post Here:
- Artists' depictions of astronomical objects and cosmological phenomena
- Informative illustrated scientific diagrams and charts
- Artistic depictions of extinct organisms
- Naturalistic artwork depicting plants, animals, or landscapes
- Discussions and news about scientific illustration
Stuff That Probably Doesn't Belong Here
Look, I'm not really into making and enforcing a bunch of arcane, oddly specific rules. I don't care about your choice of title formatting, and I'm pretty lenient about what constitutes "nature illustration." With that said, there are some types of content that might be better suited for other subverses. These things could probably include:
Completely off-topic content. This probably goes without saying, but posts should be at least loosely related to scientific and naturalistic illustration and artwork.
Nature photography. I love nature photography and astrophotography as much as anyone, but this isn't really the place for it. There are plenty of great subverses that are well suited to nature photos, like /v/earthpix and /v/spacepix.
Drama, harrassment, etc. Be kind to your fellow goats! /v/NatureIllustration is a No Drama Zone.
Anyway, that's basically what passes for "rules" around here. I can hardly imagine deleting a post, especially with this subverse still being in its infancy. Just post anything you feel would fit here. :)
