: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 (without tools on it).
: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!

AthenaTT Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2003
I wanna join!! I love pencil, and I think a lot of people don't realize how difficult of a medium it actually is, so anything I can do to help "raise awareness" of the plight of Graphite Artists would be fantastic! ^_^
