SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

SUBMITTING LINEART:
- :bulletblue: - By submitting lineart to the color-me-club, you automatically give permission to others to color it and showcase it in their deviantArt gallery.

- :bulletblue: - Illustrated work only. No photography, photomanipulations, 3d, animation, or other non-illustrated medium.

I'M DONE!  HOW DO I SUBMIT TO THE CONTEST?



Submit your finished lines to your dA gallery, then send a note to the color-me-club.

Entitle the note "September Lineart Submission."  Inside of the note, include a [link] to your lineart.  That's it.  That's all you need to do to submit your entry to the lineart contest.



ANY SPECIAL RULES?



A few.

By contributing your lineart to this contest, you automatically agree to the rules listed herein, and give permission to the color-me-club to showcase your artwork in the color-me-club journal.

Only one entry per deviant.

Entries must be dated no earlier than September 1st, 2014.

Entries should be received by October 1st.  While we still accept entries through voting, you understand that late entries will be uploaded when the club is updated, and the artist will lose potential votes with a late entry.

The lineart must be your own.  Ripped or "sampled" lineart will be disqualified.  This includes tracing.  This does not include "referenced" images, you may use any image for reference.  As long as you don't trace an existing image directly, you're free to use any image for reference to help you create your work.

Winners of previous contests ARE allowed to participate.  There are no restraints for how often members can contribute.  The game here isn't about winning.  It's about creating.

You do not have to be a color-me-club member to participate.  This is open to the whole dA community!

Lastly, have only one artist submit the image.  Collaborative efforts are encouraged.  However, ensure the other collaborator knows the image will be submitted to the contest, and determine who will be representing the image.

Best of luck, everybody!

YOur Mature Content folder needs more nude males. Seriously. More "yaoi" works too.  There is a huge discrepency between the nude females/"yuri" works and the nude male/"yaoi" works in number and in explicitness.
