:aww: ... please have a look at our... :

SUBMISSION RULES Arrow right by Drawn-Mario Arrow right by Drawn-Mario Arrow right by Drawn-Mario Arrow right by Drawn-Mario


In order to maintain a certain quality and theme of group:

:bulletred: Must be submitted to the CORRECT FOLDER (Due to that lets-Pastel accepts just 2 submissions a week you otherwise maybe have to wait a few days till you can submit again). Not sure?:Have a look in the folder for examples&description

:bulletred: just media of dry pastel, pastel pencils, oil pastel, charcoal & chalk - LITTLE use of pencils or ink FOR DETAILS is allowed, but pastel must absolutely predominate. Please no mixed media with watercolour, acrylic, oil, much colored pencil ect...group theme would become too blurred.

:bulletred: Media must be written in the description of your work
(just "pencil" doesn't tell media...so please mention which one)

:bulletred: limited to 2 submission a week

:bulletred: Should be cropped properly (nothing to see but the drawing: no other background than the paper, no things on it) and well photographed or scanned (not too dark or light, not too small or blurry)

:bulletred: no WIPs or unfinished work

:bulletred: no lined or squared paper

:bulletred: no porn (nudes allowed)

:bulletred: no manga, pokemon, ponies, or any other known cartoon or animation film character...sorry

:heart: It's not meant in a rude way if your work was declined without explanation. But a LOT OF people don't care about submission rules or submitting to the correct folder...so it's a very big & unnecessary effort for every admin to clean up after all this submissions. Please just have a look for the reason. A question anyway? : Send a note for help :aww:

Dear member.... I'm the owner of this group and apologize for some delays here and there. This is due to the fact that I'm handling the group alone and had some health problems and moreover a lot other life things to manage. Will do my best in future !  ;)
