There are some rules I'd like to remind and explain to you.
Please, submit your WIPs and sketches in appropriate folder ("WIPs and sketches"). We consider works drawn on notebook/copybook paper, poorly photographed, or that just look like practice to be sketches. If you submit it to another folder, it'll be moved to a right folder later or simply declined.
Stored deviations will be removed from our gallery.
Make sure you put mature tag to your deviation when required. If a work needs a tag but doesn't have it - the work will be declined.

Don't forget to put in description of your work what tools were used, if we have doubts that ballpoint pens were used, we decline the work.
Ink drawing is not ballpoint pen drawing. Even though it's similar in many ways we decided not to accept such works.
No self-favorites. They will be declined without explanations. If we get tired of declining - you get a warning note. If you get a waning and still ignore this rule constantly proposing your own works to favorites you'll be kicked out from the group or temporarily blocked. If you're not a group member and continue proposing self-favorites after a warning - you'll be blocked. Propose someone else's works that you like. Join the group and promote your works as a member. If you want our opinion about your work - send us a note.
Explanation of folders (with examples):
Rules and Folders with examplesHi! Once again we'd like to remind you SUBMISSION RULES:
3 (THREE) submissions per day (exception - contest entries).
One-color: for works where you used a pen of only one color.
Colorful: a work done with pens of different colors
Mixed: Ballpoint pen + other media
Sketches and WIPs: For works in process and sketches.
Note: don't submit more than one WIP of one artwork, if we notice that more than one WIP is submitted, we'll remove the older versions. If you want to show all the WIPs - make "all-in-one" work, like a tutorial.
Note: works made on copybook pages, containing random notes or some text visible from the other side of the paper can be considered sketches by group moderators. So if you submit such work in the other folder (like one color, mixed or colorful) it can be declined.
Thank you for reading!
