Everyone is welcome:D

How to submit to our gallery
:bulletorange: You first have to be a member.
:bulletorange: Go to the Gallery, click on the + right next to the gallery-folder that your drawing fit in to according to the pencil media you've used (more guidelines below). Choose the work you would like to submit. and Done!

: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.

For further information read the full guidelines: thepencilclub.deviantart.com/b…

Contests
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!

News


Hello Everyone!

I'm sorry that I'm posting another two week's journal, but is was such a busy period for me as I've been moving to a different flat etc. :)
However I think that I'll continue to post only one journal after my turn of managing your works as we still didn't find fourth admin to work with us and unfortunately I don't have enough time to do everything on time in this group :(

I would like to wish you Happy Easter (I know it's a little bit late, but that doesn't matter :D) and I hope you'll enjoy these featured drawings from the last two weeks :)

And as I mentioned before - we still need new admin submissions. If you are interested or have any queries please send us a note.

Super Group Status


Our Super Group status has expired and we still need 4150 point 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:

:bulletorange: use our journal skin, with all of it's useful links to various group's sections, and your most frequent questions.
:bulletred: prevent overfilling folders and many more!

Thank you all who already helped us! :iconthankiesplz:

do scetches count? and I haven't ever finished one of my original works. I always use pencils, but don't shade. I personally don't think my work is good, but others say it's great. any advice on hoe to improve my penciling-or if I should join?

Well, we of course want to reflect only your best works, things you are proud of, that way it's more likely other people will look and like it too. So that is to make it better for you and other members. If you feel like you want to improve more, you can submit to our Critique folder where our Mentors will give feedback on your work and that can be a great way for you to improve in your art:) but just joining doesn't require anything:)
