Drawcrowd (dead/closed) is an online platform for artists to upload and showcase their work. It is one of the newest sources of images for Danbooru.
This page will describe how to upload from Drawcrowd, in addition to how to handle new artist entries in the case an entry doesn't already exist for the artist you're uploading a work from.
As Drawcrowd is still new, it is important to read these instructions carefully. One of the peculiar intricacies about Drawcrowd is that the download button is misleading and does not download the actual, full and original image. The original images are kept hidden to mitigate bandwidth costs.
Here's the ideal procedure when uploading from Drawcrowd.
Drawcrowd has reduced-size versions of its images known as drawcrowd samples, none of which should be uploaded here.
To find the full image URL, you must manually alter part of the image URL (typically /large/) to /original/. If the /original/ returns a file not found error, then the /large/ image is accepted as the original.
2. Change the source from the direct image URL to the HTML URL of the work. It should look like the following:
3. Use the artist tag detected under Related Tags, if there is one. If there is none, you may refer to the rest of this article on how to choose an artist name and make an entry for them.
Artist naming and entry
If there are no other active accounts on which an artist posts, the name listed in their profile will usually be sufficient for their artist name. If their Drawcrowd account has been found linked from one their other accounts such as DeviantArt or Pixiv than their ArtStation URLs (seen below) should be appended to their existing artist entry. See Artist tagging help thread if you are unsure or think an artist name should be changed.
There is one URL for a Drawcrowd artist that should be included in their artist entry list of URLs. Below is an example for one artist:
Sometimes an artists other accounts may be listed in the About subheading on their Drawcrowd profile. This could help find an existing artist entry or should be appended to the artist's URL list.
