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 everyone had great weekend :) You may have noticed we have a couple of new admins, reveur-artiste and Cosmic-Void. They're both excellent artists so be sure to check out their galleries!

Reminder: For those of you looking to improve your skills we have the Critique Folder, where you can submit your drawings for constructive critiques from one of our mentors, and the Useful & Helpful folder, where you can find tutorials submitted by our members.


We are planning to organise a contest!
Unfortunately we don't have enough points as the reward for the winners.

I can't submit a work because of a note indicating about the waiting for the 7 global days.  I submitted a work a week ago on Saturday with no problem.  I was wondering should I wait to submit my work later today?
Thank you~

It hasn't been a full 7 days yet. I checked the group logs and it shows your last drawing was submitted about 6 days and 18 hours ago. Try again in about 6 hours. :)
