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!

New Head Admin

Hello Everyone!

As I wrote in my recent journals, I have to leave my post as Head Admin. I have much less time now and unfortunately lost motivation to all types of art after some problems in my life. I will try to get it back, but now I have to leave and focus on other things :(

Of course, all 770 points collected in our Donation Pool for Super Group Status and other activities of the group will be sent to the new Head Admin: Andrzej5056 as soon as new donation pool will be open. I'm sure he will let you know in next entries :)


Thank you for all 7 years spent in this group as an administrator with all of you - very talented and inspiring artists!

Uhm, excuse me? I don't recall joining your site. My groups page or friends section don't show I've added you but I'm getting your deviants so could you please find out why and delete me from your list? Thank you.

I have no idea why you get submissions from us if you're joined or watching us. But only you can unjoin us, by going to your name on the groups first page and then click leave group.

I'm sorry but there is no 'leave group' button which leads me to believe I never joined. So we still have a mystery here.
SandraHultsved Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
hum, yes I mean if you can't find us in your watch, I guess you will have to ask the admins then, cause I can't really check that from here.
