All We Need Is U

Panda Emoji-31 (Hello) [V2] 

Did you all finished Inktober?
If so, you did an amazing job!
If you made only couple of Inktober drawings that's ok too. It's a challenge after all, and mostly it should be fun. ;)
And in case you didn't take part in the challenge, try it next year!
It's a fun experience to test yourself and grow as an artist.

It maybe seems too early to say this, but I think the next time we'll be already talking about reindeers. I'ze a reindeer 

The time is really going by so fast.

Let's see what we found in the last month...shall we... :plotting:

:smallwave: V2 by Synfull Please read our complete SUBMISSION RULES.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate In the description box of your artwork has to be written which art media (ex.: watercolor, ink…) was used to create your painting. You don't need to name the brands. Writing "watercolor" in your tags is not enough.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate The artwork has to be presented properly (no crooked photographs or scans, notebook wires visible, paint sets and or brushes visible, blurry and so on…)

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Nothing digital can be added, painted or drawn on the artwork. Exceptions are: regular editing of the scan / photo (adjusting brightness / contrast / sharpness, cropping, adding watermarks).

Simple Smiley by ware4me We always write the artist the reason for declining the artwork. If possible we ask for corrections and for re-submisson of the artwork.
