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:
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
Monthly Theme - periodocally we will make an invitation for a given theme! Please keep an eye on our journal announcements! 2 / month
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." ~ Dictonary.com
Anatomy Studies - Studies of anatomy (like muscles, bones) or of body-parts (like hand, feet, ears, ...) of humans or animals.
Anime + Manga - Anime and manga style artwork.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Be polite to the founder and contributors. They work hard. If you want to address an issue, do so in a friendly manner.
Even if you chose not to watch this group, you MUST at least chose to watch Journals, Polls & Status Updates. These things are important.
Interested in becoming a contributor? We're currently in need of a few more. Here are a few details and requirements:
I need ACTIVE contributors. You need to come on at least once or twice a week.
You need to be able to follow WolfkillX's directions should they give any.
You'd be deciding whether or not art should be accepted depending on the folder that it is being submitted to (be specific about what you will and won't accept. The descriptions for each folder are shown above).
If you're interested, send WolfkillX a note titled "Contributor for Traditional-Art-Draw", telling them why you'd like to be a contributor and what you can do for the group.
You must follow the rules listed above in the "rules" section.
If you are qualified, you will be added to the list of contributors.
