Group Info

A group dedicated to art shaded in black . Be it with solid high contrast shading , cross hatching (shading with lines), or stippling (shading with dots).

Colors are allowed, but not shades of it, the shadows must be in black... Not gray shades either.

Oh and no pure lineart with no shading at all. There are other groups for that.

If you have a little shading that dont follow the rules on a picture but its mostly black, an exception could be made. But it has to atleast be around 90% following the rules. A little more relaxed in the "Mixed shading" category.

Does viewing a black and white image trigger something in your brain that a color image does not?

I submitted my Indian stippling drawing but it went into the wrong folder. Can it be moved into the stippling folder?

Looks to be in the right folder.

That was a while back. I withdrew it and submitted it to the right one a long time ago.
