I've decided to make a little change to one of our group rules.
The previous rule:
'To improve the quality of the artwork we feature, all traditional artwork (displayed as a photo of the original work) must only show the paper itself. This means we no longer accept work that shows ring binders, hands or anything else (unless it is meant to be there as part of the drawing).'
We will now look over this rule if the image if photographed in an artistic/visual way.
Examples of what will be now accepted:
Cleverly photographed on a specific background and drawing tool (pen) placed appropriately.
(<-- previously declined - now acceptable under new rule)
Drawing tool is positioned or held appropriately on or around the image.
(WIPs are not allowed in our gallery however this is a good example)
Clean and contrasting background - a little cluttered and some focus taken away from the actual drawing by the pens but would be accepted (if complete).
Examples of what will NOT be accepted:
Background too cluttered and messy.
These two examples were chosen from ISU's declined submissions to the Traditional Art folder. I apologise if you do not want your image to be here - if so just say! I haven't put them here to offend, just to educate your fellow members
