Hi, lately I've made few changes in folders. Firstly we've got two new ones. First is "Fantasy - Group Scenes", I've noticed that fantasy folders are popular and there is quite a lot of works featuring humanoid and monters characters or bigger multicharacters pieces as well so keeping it brief if you hadn't know where to submit your "lady and dragon" art ther's right place. Also fantasy is obviously wide term that includes standard fantasy, mythology, all kinds of macabre and horror etc. (except SF)

Second folder is "Fan-Art - Literature". Most of good books (and even more of bad:() has already been adapted but still most known stories begins as literature. So this a place for fanart based on this source.

There is also a folder for less casual art. It's "Abstract...", generally you can submit most of untypical styles you can imagine: abstract, surreal, cubism, pop-art, simbolism, expressionism, suprematism, and also historic styles like Greek red-figure or Egyptian relief.

We accept also anatomy sketches, although term sketch is questionable here, still it have to be good quality works.

Monthly Theme

Many important things had happened lately. Firstly, we've got first announcement trailer (teaser?) for final "Game of Thrones" season. Also recently US has been attacked by unprecedented wave of cold that's why can there be more suitable topic than "Winter is coming". Anything winter related suits here, don't have to be "GOT" connected.

:star: Welcome to Colour-Pencils Group! :star:


We are currently the largest colored pencils group on DevantArt! We are also the most diverse, featuring art from a variety of subjects. In this group, we have on display some of the best colored pencil drawings on DeviantArt. We're a group dedicated to art involving colored pencils. Whether you like the coloring or just drawing, you've come to the right place!

If you want to join the group you'll be automatically accepted. But remember we have rules concerning submitting your works:

:bulletred: We only accept high quality colored pencil artwork. Please do not submit any unfinished drawings or anything offensive (no porn, racism, extreme violence, etc). Please submit only your best drawings.

We try to maintain a certain level of quality in our galleries. We only accept colored pencil drawings that show a high level of technical skill and technique.

:bulletorange: You can only submit 1 work per day per folder

:bulletyellow: Please submit your artwork to the correct folder. Each folder has a description as to what goes in each one. For more information on what goes in each folder, please read here: Folder Submission Guidelines.

:bulletgreen: Monochromatic works will be accepted, as long as they are 100% drawn with colored pencils. Graphite pencil drawings are not permitted.

:bulletblue: While we do accept mixed media, the majority (>75%) of the drawing must be done with colored pencils We do not accept drawings done primarily with graphite pencils, pens or marker. Pastel pencils and watercolor pencils are ok.

Hello. I would like to know why my drawing was declined?
rebeccawangart Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
Hello.  This drawing was declined for a couple of reasons.  First off, it is a great drawing!  However, we prefer drawings that are cropped to the artwork, and do not have a lot of empty space around them, as well as having the pencils in the picture.
MonaAmin Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you very much for your kind reply. Can I resubmit the same drawing after cropping and without the pencils? Will it be accepted?
rebeccawangart Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes, absolutely!
