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 (without tools on it).

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!

When my drawings get chosen for the feature (and I thank you) it does not get sent to my "Mentions" tab so I know.  Has something changed?
Leuseni Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, we have a problem with mentioning artists in our journal. When we do it the standard way it shows "Nobody" instead of the nick, so we're adding it using a different code and that's why you don't get any notification :(
I wrote to the technical support for help but they did nothing.

Leuseni Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
