Hello members of Colour-Pencils group!

We have been getting a lot of great submissions lately, really great works that we are proud to have in our gallery!  However, we have also been getting a lot of submissions lately that are not drawn with colored pencils, so I just want to make the rules a little more clear.

We are currently not accepting artwork drawn with pastels or pastel pencils.  Our group is specifically for colored pencils, which is a distinct and separate media from pastels and pastel pencils.  Although it has "pencil" in the name, pastel pencils are chalk pastels.  We would like for those pictures colored with pastels or pastel pencils to please find a group specific for pastels.  

I hate declining art, especially since I have seen some amazing drawings, but if they are not drawn with colored pencils, unfortunately they will not be accepted into the group.

If you have any questions about what we accept and what we do not accept, please refer to this journal entry:…

Ay further questions please feel free to send us a note!

:star: Welcome everyone! :star:

We're a group dedicated to art involving colored pencils. Whether you like the coloring or just drawing, you've come to the right place!

If you want to join the group you'll be automatically accepted. But remember we have rules concerning submitting your works:

:bulletred: It has to be a really good work done almost entirely with color pencils. We only accept quality colour pencils art, no unfinished work, scraps or anything offensive/racist/porno. We

:bulletorange: You can only submit 1 work per week.

:bulletyellow: To apply for the featured folder on one of your works, the art piece must be very elaborated and well executed.

:bulletgreen: Monochromatic works will be accepted, as long as they are 100% drawn with colored pencils. Graphite pencil drawings are not permitted.

:bulletblue: While we do accept mixed media, the majority of the drawing must be done with colored pencils. We do not accept drawings done primarily with pastels, pastel pencils, graphite pencils, pens or marker.

:bulletpurple: More detailed rules you can find here:…

If your work was not accepted, please take a minute to think about the previous rules.

Please be patient, sometimes it can take one week for the deviation to be voted and published, specially featured ones.
