Listing Mediums - A MUST!

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 15, 2012, 4:50 PM


Mediums used

To all ThePencilClub members

Many members are not stating the kind of pencils and mediums used in their artists comments about the art. This makes it very difficult for us admins when accepting your art. We have to ask each and every one what was used to make sure it is the right folder or even if it is acceptable for the group. We receive so many each week and it takes too much time to send so many requests for what was used.

It states in the rules, please indicate what you used. If DA members do not submit to groups, than there is no need to put what mediums were used. If you want your art in groups, than putting mediums is a must.

Gallery Opens again Friday. We are going to start declining for no mediums listed so, please, can you do that one favor for us?  I do not think it is too much to ask.

Well, isn't where the artist posting his/her piece in the folder they chosen correct? Why would someone submit something in the wrong medium folder? I'm sure where they are being submitting to is right, sorry if it doesn't look like the name of the folder's medium that was used looks like it.

You would be amazed what we get submited into the group sometimes. Plus, with so many different kinds of pencils it is hard to tell if it was charcoal pencil, pastel pencil or a dark graphite. Then you have digital editing which makes some pencil work not even look pencil anymore. It just makes it easier for us than to have to guess and assume.

I was wondering about that, but where and how do I clarify what I used? I submit to pencils bc I use a .05 mechanical pencil, I thought that I was doing it correctly. Sorry for any inconvenience.
