On this Kuler site, you will discover how to combine colors according to many criteria. Please enjoy :D


THE WHEEL OF COLORS: opposite colors are complementary colors


Affiliates to our club :)




:bulletpink: DEFINITION
Our group collects high quality monochrome pictures (traditional, digital and photomanipulations) . If there is a second color, it must be in a very little proportion.
We do not accept multiple colors pictures.

:bulletyellow: Being accepted in this Group does not mean that your submissions for the galleries will be automatically accepted. If the artwork you propose is declined, of course this does not mean that all your artworks will be. So… do not give up ! We always try to leave you a message and tell you why we refused your submission.
:bulletyellow: A good technical level is required (proportions, lines, colorization).
:bulletyellow: You can submit 2 Deviations per week.
:bulletyellow: Please do no submit in the Featured gallery, Features are Admins’ choice.

:bulletpink: WILL BE DECLINED
:bulletyellow: Multiple colors pictures
:bulletyellow: Unachieved pictures / basic colorization without enough work
:bulletyellow: Simple sketches or studies, sketches on just a color background
:bulletyellow: Linearts or linearts on just a color background
:bulletyellow: Copies of existing artworks
:bulletyellow: Comic pages, abstract, standard photos (only high quality photomanipulations matching the monochrome theme of the group are accepted)
:bulletyellow: Very huge or multiple watermarks that totally ruin the picture (DA watermarks are accepted)
:bulletyellow: Porn (nudity is ok as long as it's done with taste), humiliating, degrading or extreme pictures.

Thank your for your attention.







:bulletpink: Questions about the folders :
People asked us why there are 2 or 3 colors on a same folder. The answer is simple:
. The white-grey-black folder : a picture cannot be all black, or all white ! So the grey is the logical shading color.
. The beige-brown folder : those colors are related because brown is 80% part of the shadings for the ocre color (the contrary is also true).
. Same goes for the yellow-orange-red folder. And a all yellow picture is not very easy to find (and eyes killing), orange is very often a part of the shadings for this color. Yes, we could have done a "red" folder alone, but we also saw many orange-red pictures. This is why we put all those 3 colors together, so it will be easier for you when you submit something and for us.
. Same explanation for the purple-pink folder, those colors often mix together for shadings.
So, please take care on which folder you submit your picture. Thank you ~

:bulletpink: Can I submit a picture of an artist I like, and/or pictures that can be good for your group ?
Of course and we really appreciate deviants who take the time to search and submit artworks here. They help us to keep the group alive.
The picture you will submit will first be approved (or declined) by us, and after by the artist who owns it before it can be part of the group.
Please respect the rules when you submit something (especially the fact that the group is for monochrome pictures) and post it on the right folder.

:bulletpink: Will you open a "multiple colors" folder ?
No we won't, sorry. This is not the purpose of this group.

:bulletpink: Will you do contests on your group ?
No, all we want is to share with you the maximum of amazing monochrome pictures. You will only receive the new additions of the group.
