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!

Hello Members and Watchers,

I hope you all had a great week. There were so many fantastic submissions this week I had the hardest time choosing which ones to feature. Be sure to check out our gallery folders for more great works. :)

Points Needed For Super Group Status!

We're getting closer to becoming a Super Group once again, but we still need over 2500 points to renew our Super Group status. Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated.

We need the status to:

:bulletyellow: get back the countdown widget so members will know exactly when they can submit their artworks,
:bulletorange: use our unique journal skin again, with all of it's useful links to various group's sections, and your most frequent questions.
:bulletred: and many more!

Once we have enough points, we're also going to have a small contest to get your creativity flowing :)

We admins and mentors of ThePencilClub are doing all we can to satisfy our above 12,000 members. You can help us by donating your spare points here : The Donation Pool.

Big thanks to all who have already helped us :iconthankiesplz: :)
