Group Info

Info and Rules

About Draw-Along

This is a group with a difference!! We don't take general submissions, only submissions that are interpretations of the Draw-Along references provided by the group. This is an opportunity to get to know other artists on dA; to take your creativity forward and put your own stamp on the monthly reference and it's also a place to learn, you can ask for critique or for help from the others taking part and most of all HAVE SOME FUN!!!!
Every month we will upload a reference picture which will be the reference of the month ... all members can choose to draw it, if you want to, of course (so no original characters please!! )
Members are more than welcome to suggest reference pictures that they would like to see appear as the reference of the month, either from the internet or from dA. We will obtain permission from any artists before posting a reference, so this wont be a problem for anyone taking part (although there are a few rules that need to be followed below).

Crediting the reference artist

1. Once you have finished your drawing, please credit the original artist in your artist's comments section with a thumbnail of their picture and a link to their gallery.
2. Personally thank the original artist via note and/or comment with a link or thumbnail of your drawing.
3. Please submit to the correct folder, it will be clearly named.
4. 2 submissions per day (at the moment ).
5. No digital art (see info and rules)
6. NO PHOTO MANIPS (copyright issues are serious!!)

How to Join

:bulletred: Q: How do I join the club?
:pointr: A: Just click the "Join Our Group" button on our front page.
We'll give your gallery a look over just to make sure you have traditional art in there - if you have, your application will be accepted automatically. If you have no traditional art in your gallery, then you'll need to let us know if you still want to join - there's an option to send us a note as you apply to join, which is ideal for this. When your application is accepted, you'll be notified in your message centre and sent an introductory comment from the club.
Please remember there is also the option just to watch the group if you don’t want to actively participate :nod:

We would be really grateful if any of you might display our icon in your journal or our link in your comment signature - it's not a requirement, but it would be really helpful if you could help spread the word about us! You could also add us to the "Groups" widget that you can add to your front page that will show our icon. Here's how to do all these things we’re asking of you:-

:bulletred: Q: How do I add the icon to my journal?
:pointr: A: Just type : icondraw-along : (with the colons but without the spaces) into your journal.

:bulletred: Q: How do I add the link to my signature?
:pointr: A: Go to Account Tools :pointr: Edit Settings :pointr: Identity, and type : devdraw-along : (with the colons but without the spaces) into the box under "Comment Signature".

:bulletred: Q: How do I use the Groups widget on my front page?
:pointr: A: Go to "Edit Page" on your front page (top right-hand corner) and select the Groups widget from the list.

:bulletred: How do I submit art to the club?

:pointr: Click the "Contribute Art" button on our front page, and select your submission to the current monthly gallery folder. (Please make sure that you submit to the correct folder.)
The submissions limit is currently 2 deviations per day.

Submission Rules

Quality
The standard of artwork accepted into the gallery will never be judged on ability level, we welcome all abilities here. We shall never, ever discriminate due to the level of skill of the artist- however, we will only take work that is presented in the best possible way.
We ask that you submit a good clear image showing your artwork only (no ragged paper edges or family members in the background please).
We also ask that you don’t submit sketches, by this we mean a quick 15 minute drawing. This group is about producing your interpretation of another artists reference. If they are good enough to allow us to draw their art, it is only fair that the reproductions have been given though and effort has been put in.
We also ask that drawings are done on plain paper, no lined or squared paper will be accepted. Neither will paper with coffee cup rings and chocolate smears on. Your work must be well presented.
Any submission that contain digital elements will be automatically rejected, NO digital enhancements of any kind are allowed. You may alter the brightness and contrast to correct any photography/scan changes, but nothing more.

New
If you won in the poll your drawing from the following month can't get into the poll. The month after that it will be included again.
In case you submit more than one drawing please write in your artists comment which one you want to have in the poll, or even better, note us about it. If you won't tell us in one of these ways which one you want to have included we will take the first one you submitted.

Please Note
We all know that things can go wrong or don’t always make sense ( language barriers etc), so if you think something is not working or could be done better, send us a group note or mail one of the founders and we'll take a look at it for you :nod:
