Welcome to the "Official Art" thread!

What is this I don't even

Allow me to explain. Anime Vice catalogues a lot of images with users adding more every day. These images are useful for wiki articles and filling in the galleries, as well as bringing in new visitors from places like Google image search. However, these images aren't really showcased in any way, so this is a place to share cool new official artwork you've added to the site.

"Official Art"?

What qualifies as "Official Art" you ask? A bunch of things: Artwork from magazines, posters, CD covers, BR/DVD covers, Visual Novel covers, Manga covers, etc. As long as it's officially affiliated with a franchise, it counts. Just make sure you know it's official and not just really good fan art or a vector trace (a digital trace of official art), sometimes it can be hard to tell.

What ISN'T Official Art?

I pretty much covered the major types of Official Art, so basically anything outside of what I listed above. But if you still need it spelling out; figures, cosplay, anime screen cap/shots, and fan art don't count, so don't post them in this thread.

Where should I add these in the wiki?

Personally I find the default galleries too broad, making it easy to lose images in the depth of the ever-growing galleries on this site. I recommend adding these galleries to pages:

  • Franchise page: Anime Art, Manga Art, Visual Novel Art, CD Covers, BR/DVD Covers, Other Merch
  • Character page: Anime Art, Mange Art, Visual Novel Art

Where do manga/novel covers go? Upload those to the book/volume page they belong to. Why shouldn't you add merchandise to the character pages? I think that's better on the franchise page, same reason why I don't advise adding fan art to the franchise or series pages, that belongs on character pages. After all, if we added everything everywhere the galleries would be ridiculous wouldn't they? These aren't official rules or anything, but I highly recommend the galleries I've suggested.

LAST THING! (important please read)

Please post images using the small (single) or side-by-side (multiple) settings.

This is partly to keep the thread tidy, but also because most official artwork comes from anime magazines aimed at guys. So don't be surprised to see anime girls wearing little to no clothing in some images. If you don't want to see such images, either scroll past them or leave the thread. Of course, full nudity (completely bare breasts or visible genitals) is not allowed.

Now share those images!
