Group Information

ωєʅƈơɱє тơ тяʌɗɪтɪơɲʌʅ~ʌят~ɗяʌω!

Hello, and welcome to Traditional-Art-Draw!

Traditional-Art-Draw is a group for the more traditional artists who prefer the original type to the digital type. Here, artists may browse or submit traditional art. We accept all different kind of styles, as long as folder guidelines are followed and, of course, the artwork is 100% traditional.

For those who don't know the difference between traditional and digital, traditional art is art that is drawn on paper or a canvas by hand. Digital art is art that is created on the computer or in some cases, the phone.

Generally 1 Artwork / Week / Folder

Here are the categories we accept:

Gallery Folders

Bullet; Blue Featured - Only selected pieces may enter this folder. Submissions to this folder are NOT allowed.
You can however suggest artworks here in 
Preselection for Featured Gallery
Bullet; RedBullet; RedBullet; Red  Monthly Theme - periodocally we will make an invitation for a given theme! Please keep an eye on our journal announcements!   2 / month
Bullet; Blue Abstract - Random colors and splotches, designs, and creations that don't quite fit other descriptions. "Abstract art seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. It explores the relationships of forms and colors, whereas more traditional art represents the world in recognizable images." ~
Bullet; Purple Anatomy Studies - Studies of anatomy (like muscles, bones) or of body-parts (like hand, feet, ears, ...) of humans or animals.
Bullet; Purple Anime + Manga - Anime and manga style artwork.
Bullet; Yellow Anthro - Antropomorphic Animals - Anthro 
Bullet; Red Architecture, Technical Drawings - Pictures that mainly show buildings and architecture, as well as technical drawings.
Bullet; Purple Calligraphy - Artworks which mainly consist of calligraphy/typography or have their main focus on written letters.
Bullet; Blue Canines - Wolves, Dogs, Foxes. Canine-based work. No Anthro and Fantasy here!
Bullet; Purple Comics - Comic strips and pages.
Bullet; Yellow Cartoon Style - Cartoons which are not in Comic strip form.
Bullet; Black Commissions, Adopts and Requests - Commissions / Requests / Adoptables, including animals, humans, humanoids, and beasts.

Bullet; Purple Felines - Cats, Lions, Tigers. Feline-based work. No Anthro and Fantasy here!
Bullet; Blue Landscapes and BGs - Landscapes and backgrounds, that's it.
Bullet; Black Line Art  - While you can have lineart in all categories we prefer that you submit it here! It will also shine better, as no color in other artworks around would distract from it.
Bullet; Purple Logos - Company or school logos- or your own!

Bullet; Red Nature - Trees, Flowers (other than still life flowers) and other nature-based artworks that do not fit another category.

Bullet; Black Sci-Fi - Artwork that is related to Sci-Fi-Themes, like space ships.
Bullet; Blue Sculpture - Various kinds of traditional 3D-sculptures.
Bullet; White Sketches - Sketches (please avoid lined paper)  2 / week

:bulletgreen: Only TRADITIONAL art is allowed! This may seem like a big "DUH," but believe it or not, we've had quite a few digital art submissions. If you submit a digital piece, it will be declined. If you want to submit digital art, there is a group similar to this one called Digital-Art-Draw.

:bulletblue: Please submit your work to its proper folder. Every piece has a category, and its your job as a member to to find that category. Don't be lazy!! The categories are listed above. If you fail to submit your art to the correct folder, your submission will be declined.

:bulletpurple: Comment on the group's page and notify us when a folder is full. Unless you tell us, we won't know, and just because a folder is full does NOT mean that you are able to submit your piece to another folder. If you submit a piece to the wrong folder, it will be declined.

:bulletblack: No advertising! Everyone wants points or cash, but here is not the right place for announcing it. That's what the forums are for. We will not hesitate to mark your post as a SPAM.

:bulletpurple: Be polite to the founder and contributors. They work hard. If you want to address an issue, do so in a friendly manner.

:bulletblue: Even if you chose not to watch this group, you MUST at least chose to watch Journals, Polls & Status Updates. These things are important.
