The Imaginary Network:





A multi-reddit of The Imaginary Network

Pictorial art of monsters from the past or present, such as angels, demons, strange WTF creatures, drooling brutes, innocent-looking oddities, mythical hybrids, an image from a bestiary, etc. Perhaps your submission will inspire an illustrator or comic-book artist. Yes, you can submit drawings of your own imaginary monsters :) No photos, please.

Please credit the artist by their real name and link to source. Please take 5 minutes to use Google Image Search or TinEye

Use the actual title of the artwork: Don't retitle an artist's piece, even if the relation between the title and the piece is unintuitive. Do not create a title for an untitled piece either.

No links to collections of wallpapers or a portfolio: Please link to one image, and post a link to the gallery in the comments

Self-submissions: Flair reserved for artists posting their own work (Original Content/'OC'): Click the word 'flair' under your post's title then click 'Self-submission' and Save. If you want to see more Self-submissions, click here. Please leave a comment about your piece.
