Hello and Welcome to the Pet Art Group!

If you would like to share your pet art or animal art, you can either post in the Show & Tell section at the bottom of this page, or you can start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button near the middle of this page.. You will likely get more views and replies if you start your own discussion.

If you would like some advice on a specific work-in-progress, feel free to start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button near the middle of this page.

If you'd like to share your step-by-step process to create a finished piece, that would be great too!

Click here to learn how to upload images into your forum posts (which is important so that people can see your art within the post, rather than as an attachment link beneath your post).

Just a few simple guidelines:

  • Please keep all discussions relevant to pet art and animal art.
  • Be friendly and considerate in your posts.

Thanks for joining & have fun!
