Guidelines for Artwork Submission


:bulletpurple: TraditionalDeviants reserves the right to accept, reject or remove artworks

:bulletgreen: Each person is allowed to submit ONE deviation to the gallery PER DAY.

:bulletgreen: Submit each deviation to the correct folder. Each folder denotes only ONE kind of medium used. Please see below the medium description for each folder. Using two or more media goes to the Mixed Media folder. If you're not sure where to put a deviation, note us please.

:bulletgreen: Please write in the description box the media/materials used for your artwork. Not mandatory but this will help us to determine if your artwork is submitted to the correct folder.

:bulletgreen: Please tag your deviation if it has 'Mature Content'. Some content may not be suitable for all audiences. Failure to do so may result in your submission to be declined.

:bulletgreen: Only good quality photo/scan will be accepted. Crop out unnecessary background and edges, and reduce excess shadow due to scanning or taking the photo.

:bulletgreen: Only minimal digital enhancements are accepted, i.e., cropping, adjusting brightness/contrast/color to resemble original artwork, addition of watermark.

:bulletgreen: Digitally added frames are okay as long as it's just one solid color and doesn't add any merit to the finished artwork.

Declined artworks

:bulletred: We are purely TRADITIONAL! Artworks will be declined if they are:

     :bulletblue: Traditionally drawn then digitally painted/colored

     :bulletblue: Traditional drawings with digital backgrounds, Photoshopped textures, gradients, and filters.

Note: Digital backgrounds, even if it's a solid color or traditional-looking, will always add merit to the artwork so we will not accept.

:bulletred: Artworks on lined paper

:bulletred: Submission to the wrong folder

:bulletred: Unless it's WIP, artworks that are poorly cropped, in a skewed angle, and showing unnecessary background like desks, work tables, art materials, and sketchbook coils.

Note: Finely cropped and squared artworks, even if it shows the work table, may be accepted.

:bulletred: Violence-promoting, offensive, vulgar, pornographic or with explicit sexual content, profane, and hate-inducing works

:bulletred: Plagiarized artwork

:bulletred: Commission or art trade advertising

Gallery folders

:pencil: Only the best of the bests

:pencil: A fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. Acrylic paints are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry.

Ballpoint or Rollerball Pen
:pencil: Ballpoint is a pen that dispenses ink over a metal ball at its point
:pencil: Rollerball Pen uses ball point writing mechanisms with water-based liquid or gelled ink, as opposed to the oil-based viscous inks found in ballpoint pens

:pencil: Typically large colored (and sometimes white or cream) sticks of chalk (calcium sulfate rather than rock chalk, calcium carbonate) mostly used for drawing on pavement or concrete sidewalks
:bulletgreen: Includes sidewalk chalk drawing and chalkboard drawing

:pencil: A lightweight, black residue, consisting of carbon and any remaining ash, obtained by removing water and other volatile constituents from animal and vegetation substances
:bulletgreen: Can be natural charcoal, vine charcoal, compressed charcoal, charcoal pencils, including tinted charcoal pencils

Colored Pencil
:pencil: An art medium constructed of a narrow, pigmented core encased in a wooden cylindrical case. They are either wax-based, clay-based, oil-based, or water soluble.

:pencil: Used to describe the family of artistic practices within the family decorative arts that traditionally are defined by their relationship to functional or utilitarian products (such as sculptural forms in the vessel tradition) or by their use of such natural media as wood, clay, ceramics, glass, textiles, and metal
:bulletgreen: Includes jewelry making, studio pottery, metal work, weaving, wood turning, paper and other forms of wood working, glass blowing, and glass art

:pencil: A stick of colored wax or clay base used for writing or drawing
:bulletgreen: Includes traditional school crayons like Crayola and Prang, Conté crayons in black, white, and sanguine tones, as well as bistre, shades of grey, and other colors

Dry Pastel
:pencil: Consists of pure powdered pigment combined with a binder like gum arabic, gum tragacanth, and methyl cellulose. Often a chalk or gypsum component is present.
:bulletgreen: Includes soft pastels, chalk pastels, pan pastels, hard pastels, and pastel pencils

:pencil: One type of watermedia, paint consisting of pigment, water, a binding agent (usually dextrin or gum arabic), and sometimes additional inert material. Gouache is designed to be used with opaque methods of painting.

:pencil: These are the most common types of pencil, and are either encased in wood or woodless. They are made of a mixture of clay and graphite and their darkness varies from light grey to black. Their composition allows for the smoothest strokes.
:bulletgreen: Includes your numbered pencils, automatic/mechanical graphite pencils, ebony pencil, graphite sticks, woodless graphite pencils, pure compressed graphite, powdered graphite

India or Shellac-based Ink
:pencil: (Also Chinese ink) is a simple black or colored ink once widely used for writing and printing and now more commonly used for painting, drawing and outlining
:bulletgreen: Often used in Japanese sumi-e, Chinese brush painting, and ink wash or literati painting; and when inking manga, comic books and comic strips
:bulletblue: Tools: brushes, quill, dip pen, fountain pen, calligraphy pens

Marker, Fineliner, Felt-tip
:pencil: A pen which has its own ink-source, and a tip made of porous, pressed fibers such as felt
:bulletgreen: Includes Copic markers, Sharpie markers, Pigma Micron pens, and highlighters

Mixed Media
:pencil: Refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed -- for example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage

:pencil: Oil painting is the process of painting with pigments with a medium of drying oil as the binder. Commonly used drying oils include linseed oil, poppy seed oil, walnut oil, and safflower oil.

Oil Pastel
:pencil: Consists of pigment mixed with a non-drying oil and wax binder. The surface of an oil pastel painting is therefore less powdery, but more difficult to protect with a fixative. Oil pastels provide a harder edge than "soft" or "French" pastels but are more difficult to blend.

:pencil: A method of transferring knowledge and may be used as a part of a learning process. More interactive and specific than a book or a lecture, a tutorial seeks to teach by example and supply the information to complete a certain task.

:pencil: (Also aquarelle) is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolors are usually translucent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colors.

Sketches and WIPs
:pencil: Rough or unfinished drawing or painting, often made to assist in making a more finished picture.
:bulletgreen: Work in progress, sketch dumps
