:bulletorange:You are only able to submit two artworks per week.
:bulletorange: We want ThePencilClub to reflect your best possible work, so please don't send us any unfinished pieces, quick/messy sketches or scraps! Works that are poorly photographed or works that are not presented in the best possible way, for example drawn on a lined paper, will be denied. Also please submit pictures only with the drawing (background limited to minimum).
:bulletorange: Listing Mediums is a Must! you must state what media you used, especially if you are submitting to Other pencils-folder and Mixed Media-folder, to avoid misplaced works and saving time from asking for the information.

Members contests entries will be here.

If you are still unsure what folder to submit to, we will gladly help you!

*If there's more than one type of pencils or an other media (including digital enhancements) in your drawing, it will go under "Mixed Media".
For example: If you have used watercolor pencils and smudged less then 50% of the work/lines with water it will be accepted. But will not if more then half of the work is brushed out with water, then we consider it a painting instead of a drawing. Same thing with any other non-pencil media. Any work that has been added by a digital program will go into "Mixed Media" Folder except borders and watermarks.

Remember that the rules of DA is still valid!

Hello everyone!
Stay safe and healthy! Enjoy the features.

Admin Wanted

We still need at least one admin submissions. It's a responsible position, so we're looking for someone serious; someone of focus, commitment, and sheer will. If you are interested or have any queries, please do send us a note.

Super Group Status

Our Super Group status has expired, and we still need 3671 points to renew it. If anyone would like to make a donation, you can do it here: The Donation Pool. Each point is very important for us!
We need the status to:
:bulletyellow: maintain the countdown widget so fewer members get confused about when they can submit their artworks
:bulletorange: use our journal skin, with all of its useful links to various group's sections, and your most frequent questions
:bulletred: prevent overfilling folders and much more

Thank you all who already helped us!:iconthankiesplz:

My latest portrait. Maybe a bit different from my other recent ones.

Beautiful work! If you'd like to submit it to the group, please submit it to the appropriate folder. :)
Lily-in-Snow Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2021  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you! :) But I thought it was only possible to submit to the folders in the weekends. And since I saw many people were posting their work in comments here, I tought that was ok. I'm really sorry if I've misunderstood the rules.
DelightfulDolphin Featured By Owner 21 hours ago  Student General Artist
Ah I believe you're right, I forgot about the only submitting on weekends. Don't worry about it, I'd just recommend submitting a bunch on weekends instead of in comments over the week, that way they'll be seen more and could be included in a weekly feature. :)
