low quality?a post may be considered low quality for any of the following reasons:
- very low resolution
- excessive compression artifacts
- apparent lack of artist skill
generally, low resolution means less than 512×512 pixels.
compression artifacts can include blockiness, blurriness, color-banding, and noise.
a post may be considered low quality due to lack of artist skill if it contains traced linework, sloppy linework, incomplete coloring, unintentional asymmetry, anatomical errors, or other similar issues.
generally, this rule does not exclude sketches or other rough work.
generally, this rule does not exclude alternative or experimental styles.
2D?Okebooru is not concerned with the method or medium of a post, only the resulting style.
e.g., if an image was modeled and rendered using 3D design software, but appears 2D, it will likely be acceptable.
generally, this rule means any IRL posts, cosplay or otherwise, are not acceptable.
