What is ART street Ranking?
ART street Arrive is a new popular illustration display function provided by ART street.
When you publish an illustration on ART street, you participate automatically in ART street Arrive!
  • ART street Ranking is divided into 7 levels: LEVEL 1, LEVEL 2, LEVEL 3, LEVEL 4, LEVEL 5, LEVEL 6, and LEVEL 7.
  • When you publish your artwork, it will first appear in "New Illustrations". If it remains in the ranking, it will go up to “LEVEL 1” 4 days after the publication of the illustration, and “LEVEL 2” 1 week later. After that, it is counted every week from LEVELing UP, and if it remains in the ranking, it will be LEVELed UP to “LEVEL 3”, “LEVEL 4”…! If you advance past “LEVEL 6”, it will be posted on “LEVEL 7” for 1 month (30 days).
