Art Submission Guidelines & Portfolio Review

When submitting a new member application to Girls Drawin’ Girls, please choose three pieces of your art that you feel really display your creativity and style. Now is the time to show off! We want to see the breadth of your work; this can mean giving us a glimpse into the different mediums you enjoy, past projects that you’re proud of, or your latest, greatest pin-up illustrations, for example.

Most importantly, we are looking for examples that demonstrate an understanding of anatomy, form, and above all else, convey a sense of your personal style. Please also remember to have at least 1 of the submission pieces feature a female subject! **Note that Fanart is fine for your application, but bear in mind, it won’t be allowed in Official GDG projects– those are original/public domain content only.**

Please also remember that a non-refundable $5 submission fee will be required upon submission. Once you send a fully completed new member Application, the submission page will automatically redirect you to a secure and safe login page for PayPal. Once you log in to your PayPal account, please follow the prompt completely to send the required $5 with your Application and artwork.

If selected, this $5 will go toward your membership dues and once you are offered and accept Membership terms to be a part of the Group. A contract outlining the Terms & Guidelines for the Group to be able to sell and show off your art will be forwarded to you that is required for you to review and sign.

If you have questions about Membership before submitting an application, our FAQ page answers our most common questions and has information on Membership. You may also get in touch with us through the Contact Us page about other general questions that are not already outlined on our website.

Portfolio Review

If you would like us to review your portfolio for feedback purposes (in regards to applying to the group, or just to get advice), please feel free to bring your portfolio to any of our portfolio review sessions (usually during San Diego Comic-Con) or to any of our events, where one of our members can give you feedback!

Best of luck and we look forward to working with you in 2018-2019!
