This group is for everyone who likes drawing traditionally, whether it be from time to time or all the time. Anyone who give their love to the good old pen and pencil will always find their kind here. However, every community need rules. Please read the following rules if you want to be part of, or already are part of, our community.
We have a few (very few ) requirements your picture has to fulfill to be accepted.
Be aware that there are stricter rules for some of the folders.
Our gallery is organised in folders, as most other galleries, and here are a description of what kind of art is supposed to be submitted to each folder.
Our Featured folder is exclusively for the best and most amazing art submitted to our group. Its sole purpose is to promote the excellency of traditional art, and to be an exclusive folder it is an honor to be featured in. The requirements are:
- A proper scan/picture of the traditional piece
- A decent motive
- Shading, anatomy, composition etc. at a certain level
- Your picture must not be censored
Pictures of existing people. This folder requires a realistic style. Please do not mix with Fan Art - a picture of Daniel Radcliffe belongs in this folder, but a picture of Harry Potter belongs in Fan Art.
Fan Art of all kind. Any styles are accepted. Please do not mix with Real People and Original Characters - you are welcome to submit original characters taking place in someone else's universe in that folder.
Magic, fictional creatures - Pokémon, mermaids, dragons.
You have an OC you want to show off? You are welcome to upload pictures and references here. You can even upload an original character from a fan-fiction (such as you original Pokémon Trainer etc).
Fictional, random people
Folder for "that girl I happened to draw"-drawings. Meaning a person you've drawn who is neither your original character or a real person. Just a person, you know. Examples:
If you want critique on your art, upload your pictures here. We'll try our best to give you fair critique. Remember that everyone who finds your drawing in this folder may critique that particular piece.
THIS IS NOT A FAN ART FOLDER (already made that mistake myself). This is a folder for uploading your own cartoon strips or pages. The story can be a fan-fiction or completely original.
Landscapes, plants, etc.
Drawings of food and objects (fruit bowls, vases, anything).
Abstract art. Examples:
Buildings, Architecture and Constructions
Drawings of fictional or real buildings. A design for a building can be considered for the design folder instead.
Words, poems drawn on paper. Examplee:
Designs on clothes, furniture, buildings, patterns etc. Generally, designs.
Perhaps your dA-ID or "thanks for x pageviews"-drawing is featureworthy? Then you might find it nice to have a folder for dA-related things.
Tutorials and Studies
Tutorials for drawing traditionally - anatomy tutorials, tools tutorials etc. Studies and practices also go into this folder.
This folder is intended for various machines - vehicles, airplanes, ships etc.
None of the above
Kind of a miscellaneous folder for art that doesn't fit in anywhere else. Please do not submit to this folder unless you're absolutely sure your drawing doesn't fit anywhere else.
If there is something you want to submit but can't find the right folder, then just comment or send me a note and I'll either:
Make a fitting folder OR
Let you know which folder you can put it in.
