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

SUBMISSION LIMIT: 1 artwork per DAY.

Here are some quick guidelines:
Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Accepted art media: water-soluble media such as watercolor, concentrated watercolor ink, acuarela, liquid watercolor, transparent ink, India ink, Ecoline, coffee, tea, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, gouache and acrylic washes in a translucent manner.

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.

What should I do if I want to have my drawing be a contestant in best of month?
TokyoMoonlight Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2019   Traditional Artist
Hello =D

More or less nothing...each month we go through the artworks that were submitted to our gallery. The 10 artworks that stood out the most (quality, concept) that month are featured in the Monthly journal and are put up in a poll so people can vote which one they like the most.

It's not a contest, no prizes are given...just a little recognition for the artist and fun stuff for the members. The artist only gets a more visible spot on our front page and in our gallery. ;)
The-Mistress-of-Time Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2019  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh okay! Just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing anything! Thank you!!
TokyoMoonlight Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2019   Traditional Artist
Yes, just ask if you have doubts about something...I don't mind =D
I'm always happy to answer. :la:
