Seeing your castle drawings (maybe medieval ruins) or historical buildings of your country – it is as if you would take us there in real time.
Maybe you also draw historical buildings or other architectural objects. Terrific!
Share them with the world.
Every country has its historical spots or places of interest.
Old ancient monuments or castles…or only a small detail on the building that would be worth to draw.
Have you been to Egypt or other world’s famous places and you’ve made some sketches….? Share them!
Not a photo but your hand-made drawings and sketches are what we’d love to see. Do not forget to tell us a story that goes with your drawing.
Make sure the size of your submitted drawings are within:
800 x 600 pixels
600 x 800 pixels
If you do not have graphics editing software in your computer, you can use this free online image resizing tool: www.picresize.com
Here is another image compressing tool. User friendly, and very useful free online tool:www.websiteplanet.com/webtools/imagecompressor/
I often receive submissions with a very nice story (text) accompanying the drawing…but the drawing itself is missing…
The reason may be that
either, you forgot to upload the image file or your image size was
larger than 600x800 (800x600) pixels - explained above.
If your image size exceeds the 600x800 (800x600) pixels, the system will simply reject the image and only the text arrives.
It helps if you add your email address into the submission form, so that I can email you only if your picture is missing. Your email will never appear on the display page online. I respect your privacy.
Do you have a great story about your drawing? Share it!
