Our Community of Artists

Dear Artists & Friends,

Drawing Pencil Sketches Newsletter June 2013

Drawing Pencil Sketches Newsletter June 2013 Artists of all levels of ability are always welcome at Drawing Pencil Sketches. Here there are no minimum standards of quality. The only stipulation is that drawings and paintings conform to our copyright policies. That means all artwork uploaded must be your own unique work of art. No copying or plagiarism allowed.

All I ask here for this site is that you practice self-moderation or, in other words, only upload your very best artwork. All below par submissions will be consigned to the new "Scrapbook Gallery" which I highly recommend – it will be one of those fun pages where you post "meme" drawings and doodles – all fun stuff. As with other invitation pages; you will still be able to make comments.

You should try and place your drawings in the appropriate category when uploading although if you use the word "cartoon" it will automatically go into that category – and "cars" in the car category etc. If you do not put keywords or titles in the text it may be sometime before you get an email acknowledging your submission.

Please do not forget to upload your images, too many times I see no images at all and these will be automatically deleted. It is very simple indeed to upload images (up to 4). Once again, shoot your pics in good light without half of grandma’s face in the background.

When assessing (making comments) about other artists work here, please be considerate and not use disrespectful or abusive language. Your artwork is personal and subjective – so validate the drawing, not shred it!

We have an active and growing art community that embraces all types of original art. So where someone asks for a critique of their work, make sure it helps the artist rather than invalidate – but give your honest opinion.

There are a number of drawing tutorials here, some of them free and others a few bucks. With the paid lessons you do get individual (one-on-one) training and some of these artists give lessons over Skype.

As with all tutorials, you get the good, the bad and the ugly. So do a full assessment if you are thinking of advancing your drawing career. Your best bet in my opinion is to draw every day anything and everything. This is the fastest way of learning – by doing it.
