Also please submit pictures only with the drawing (without tools on it).

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 was spoilt for choice for the features, but I had to choose. Check out the gallery for more great art.

We still need 2410 points to renew our Super Group status.
We need the status to:
:bulletyellow: get back the countdown widget so less members get confused about 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: prevent overfilling folders and many more!

You can help us by donating your spare points here: The Donation Pool.

Thank you all who already helped us! :heart:

I feel REALLY stupid and can't find the submission button. This isn't an issue for my other groups. xDD

Oops, I just submitted two drawings, and realized I submitted both of them to the coloured pencil section, but one should be in graphite pencil. Sorry. I'd change it, but not sure how to do that.
