Art Fight Start Date
As tradition, Art Fight 2023 will be starting on July 1st, at 6:00 pm UTC. Please check the countdown on the front page for the exact start time! We recommend you start preparing yourself by updating your own characters and bookmarking other people’s characters early!
It’s important to note that drawing attacks before Art Fight starts (July 1st, 6:00pm UTC) is against the rules. Not only is it unfair to others, but it shatters the spirit of Art Fight. If you attempt to do this, your account may be banned. Please be considerate, and show good team spirit!

Other updates and news
On Coming Site Updates
We will be implementing a few new changes to the site. During this time, please be patient with us during scheduled maintenance, and downtimes. More info will be shared when it's ready!
Rest assured, our artist is working away and they will be finished and released in time for the fight. Check back for the July 1st news post!
As a reminder, using pre-made, uncredited art (like AI art) in characters and attacks goes against the spirit and rules of Art Fight; Character rule #26 & Spirit of Art Fight rule #1. This method actively hurts artists by stealing their work and Art Fight stands strongly against it. Characters and attacks that contain pre-made & uncredited art will be removed.
Character, attack, and profile pages are only available to those who are logged in. Still, we strongly encourage the user of watermarking images posted onto the site to further protect yourself against theft. And as always, you can report rule breaks using the report feature or get in contact with a moderator.
Here are some helpful resources about the negative impact of AI art and how it hurts artists: https://hyperallergic.com/806026/digital-artists-are-pushing-back-against-ai/

ArtFight 2023 MAP
If you remember last year, scribedhearts and cyxxie hosted ArtFight’s first official Multiple Animators Project, aka MAP. With the hard work of 60 participants split across two MAP videos, we were able to produce THIS and THIS!
Seeing the success of the last project has led to the return of the MAP this year. Cyxxie and Scribedhearts hope to debut the MAP song before the team reveal video on June 23rd, with sign-ups going out shortly after. After taking in feedback from last year, participants will be notified before the event begins as well!
As a reminder, all MAP parts and participants must follow ArtFight rules. While the entire part must be created during the duration of the event, parts may be of any finish level, and we are accepting and welcoming people of ALL animation levels. Participants will be required to join an ArtFight MAP-specific Discord server so the hosts can keep in contact easier, as well as seamlessly do check-ins throughout the month.
We will only be able to accept a certain number of people. After that number is reached, anyone after may sign-up as a backup. This year, parts will be divided in order to hit the music beats, which means part lengths will vary. In order to keep things fair, parts will still be assigned on a FCFS basis, so apply QUICK!
As more and more users become active, that means more eyes are on the site and more reports are on the way in! In order to help make your lives (and ours) a bit easier when it comes to helping us keep the site safe, we are currently developing a Guide to Reporting. Please keep an eye out for the release!
Stay Tuned!More updates will be posted the day of the reveal! Thank you for your patience.
