What is Art Fight?

Illustrated by Queijac

Art Fight is an annual art game that lasts for 1 month, beginning every July. During the event users can register on the site to join in. Each year, participants are split into two themed teams to which they are assigned randomly.

Players "attack" people of the opposing team by making art of original characters you choose belonging to members of the other team. You are free to use almost any visual art form! (See Attack Rules section of the rules).

Your team receives points based on what you create for the other team with each attack.

The artist that receives the attack can then counter that attack by drawing the character belonging to the person who attacked them, or pay it forward by attacking a different person on the other team.

♕ At the end of the month, the team with the greater score wins. ♕

But remember, while there are point scores, the real goal is to celebrate characters with your fellow artists.
Art Fight is about giving and receiving amazing art. ♥

More Info

  • "Attacks" are synonymous with art. An attack is an artwork created for someone on Art Fight. If those terms confuse you, just replace the word "attacks" with "art."

  • "Defenses" on peoples profiles are attacks that the person received.

  • Extra points can be gained by voting on other peoples' attacks anonymously, which means the more effort you put into your attacks, the more likely you'll get more points!

  • Battle ratio is the amount of art received versus given. People with a higher battle ratio are more likely to be a target to the other team, as they are a bigger threat.

Art Fight was created in 2007 by Blankit. It was run on a petsite forum with a small amount of participants. However, in 2013 Chronicartist developed a site to help reach other artists around the world. Unfortunately, she was not able to continue running due to life circumstances. The concept was given to Takaia and was ran on a forum site in 2015 temporarily until she could help develop this site. artfight.net has only been around since 2016! In 2023, Axel, classicturtle, and Rainy stepped up and became the co-owners of Art Fight!

Each year the 2 chosen teams are based on a theme. During the event the website is decorated to match the theme. You can find all past official art assets and animations here.
