Everyone is welcome:D

:bulletorange:You are only able to submit one artwork per week.
:bulletorange: We want ThePencilClub to reflect your best possible work, so please don't send us any unfinished pieces, quick/messy sketches or scraps! Works that are poorly photographed or works that are not presented in the best possible way, for example drawn on a lined paper, will be denied. Also please submit pictures only with the drawing (without tools on it).
:bulletorange: Listing Mediums is a Must! you must state what media you used, especially if you are submitting to Other pencils-folder and Mixed Media-folder, to avoid misplaced works and saving time from asking for the information.

For further information read the full guidelines: thepencilclub.deviantart.com/b…

Contests
Members contests entries will be here.

If you are still unsure what folder to submit to, we will gladly help you!

*If there's more than one type of pencils or an other media (including digital enhancements) in your drawing, it will go under "Mixed Media".
For example: If you have used watercolor pencils and smudged less then 50% of the work/lines with water it will be accepted. But will not if more then half of the work is brushed out with water, then we consider it a painting instead of a drawing. Same thing with any other non-pencil media. Any work that has been added by a digital program will go into "Mixed Media" Folder except borders and watermarks.


Remember that the rules of DA is still valid!
