All the donated points we receive now, will be used for future AquaChallenges. Because we don't have enough points yet...the AquaChallenges are for now on vacation. Realax 
We are also sad 5 Minute Emote - Cry ...but till the next one, keep on practicing with making lots and lots of watercolor paintings...or you can even try a new art medium. ;)

RULES FOR SUBMITTING ART

:smallwave: V2 by Synfull Please read our complete SUBMISSION RULES.

Here are some quick guidelines:
Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Accepted art media: water-soluble media such as watercolor, concentrated watercolor ink, acuarela, liquid watercolor, transparent ink, India ink, Ecoline, coffee, tea, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, gouache and acrylic washes in a translucent manner.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate In the description box of your artwork has to be written which art media (ex.: watercolor, ink…) was used to create your painting. You don't need to name the brands. Writing "watercolor" in your tags is not enough.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate The artwork has to be presented properly (no crooked photographs or scans, notebook wires visible, paint sets and or brushes visible, blurry and so on…)

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Nothing digital can be added, painted or drawn on the artwork. Exceptions are: regular editing of the scan / photo (adjusting brightness / contrast / sharpness, cropping, adding watermarks).

Simple Smiley by ware4me We always write the artist the reason for declining the artwork. If possible we ask for corrections and for re-submisson of the artwork.

I have a question, I have some original character sketches. Are those accepted here? If so, where do I put them?

Here are the sketches in question: zeldageek401.deviantart.com/ar…

Lovely Shoujo (Hi Hello) [V2] 

We accept every type of paintings as long as it's a finished one...we only don't accept work in progress scans/photos of artworks.

The one you have shown would be accepted Sign Emoji-03 (Thumbs up) 

And you don't have to worry where to submit it, because...you have only one folder to submit to. The admins staff move the artworks to the appropriate folder Bunny Emoji-83 (Oh you) [V5] 

If you will have doubt about one of your future submission, don't worry, just submit it, we will check if everything is ok. If yes, we'll accept it and if not, we will decline it and tell you the reason why it was declined ;)

I am sorry to ask this here and I really tried reading all on this groups page. If I want to submit a piece, is the main gallery the right place? It won´t let submit my art to a certain folder
Thank you for accepting me :-)

Hi =D

You just submit to the main folder -> "members submission"...we, the admin team, move it then to the right folder. wink grin 

It's our job to move the artworks around Giggle
