: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.
: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.

Read more about our Mentors:…

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 our members and visitors,

I hope that you're doing well :)

Our affiliate Trees-With-character has started their new contest, the theme is "Traditional Trees". You can read about rules and prizes of this contest here: trees-with-character.deviantar…. Prizes are awesome and I think that it's worth taking part in this contest :)

Points Needed For Super Group Status!

We still need 2,522 points to renew our Super Group status. We will appreciate even one point from you :)

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: and many more!

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

My new idea is to write a special blog entry in the middle of week after we will renew our Super Group Status. In this special entry I will choose the best art of each member which helped us collecting those points. I think that it's a good way to promote your art :)

Thank you all who already helped us :rose: :)

And now enjoy beautiful features!
