If you submit colored artwork that you or someone else has not submitted the lineart for, the admins and moderaters of TCB reserve the right to eat your face and expell you from the club, not necessarily in that order.
The Coloring Book is a club for Sheezy's great lineartists and colorists.
The goal of this club is to promote sharing and artistic growth in the community! Whether you're a lineartist who'd like to showcase their beautiful creation, or a colorist looking for something to hone your skills on, The Coloring Book is the best resource for you!
Please respect the work of the artists who post their work here! Do not manipulate original linearts, and always give credit where credit is due!

And your moderators,
Topaz, and WhiteFoxDK
Please only add the following artwork to The Coloring Book:
1) Original lineart. (Fanart is okay, as long as you are the original artist of the image, and due credit is given.)
2) Colored versions of lineart that has been posted.
3) Original colorings of your own, but if you do this, you MUST also post the original lineart of the picture.
4) Tutorials on coloring or lineart production.
Our Definition of lineart Illustration containing only black-and-white areas, with no intermediate tones (shades of grey). For a good doodle community, see Doodleton.
Spotlight On! Our bi-weekly spotlight on fantastic members! These are rising stars who you should certainly take a look at, and who definately deserve a watch... or at least a couple favs.
..there actually is an active moderator on this site. Honestly, START FOLLOWING THE RULES! I just deleted many pictures the past half hour, and I'm still not even close to halfway finished.
Here, let's review the rules:
1) YOU SUBMIT LINEART
Not too complicated right? Apparently wrong. Here's a definition of lineart, which is right on the front of this club site:
Illustration containing only black-and-white areas, with no intermediate tones (shades of grey).
That means...NO sketches, NO greyscale drawings, NO shading, NO doodles, NO NOTHING with anything OTHER THAN BLACK OR WHITE.
And for crying out loud, CLEAN UP THE LINEART. It's not too hard to use the contrast tool on any random old digital program. If you can't do that, find someone who can. It's not totally against the rules, but it is really annoying and sloppy looking. I'm very tempted to press that remove button on the, for the sheer laziness shown in the picture.
I mean, com on, it's called a COLORING BOOK club for a reason.
2) YOU DO NOT SUBMIT COLORED PICTURES UNTIL YOU HAVE SUBMITTED ITS LINEART
Another issue I'm seeing here. People submitting fully colored pictures with no lineart before it. That's not how it works here folks.
If you want to show off your finished pictures, put in a lineart for the same thing before you submit the finalized piece. Not that hard to do either. Or leave and find another club.
And this I really shouldn't have to say...but as long as we're on the subject of rules, here it goes.
3) ALL LINEARTS MUST BE OF YOUR OWN MAKING
No stolen pictures please, that's just going to get you some really negative attention. As in, BAD attention.
Only three rules. THREE. No more, no less. Just THREE. Follow them, or else that bunny's going to be ripping your drawings to shreds.
