ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME!
so what makes this group different?
well our only catch is pure vectors from scratch! i want to promote the real artistry behind your trusty pen tools. if you can draw it, design it, WHATEVER YOU DO, it belongs in a collection that recognizes artists who create their own work, pros and beginners side-by-side. hopefully there is some positive mingling.
WHAT WE WANT: homemade vector art!
anything you drew freehand with any vector program
anything you sketched prior to going over with a pen tool
even the most minimal designs
works in progress,which do not have to be complete vector. glimpses into your process are fine-- and encouraged!
anything made from photographic material you supplied yourself, -OR- other base material obtained from a permissible source (stocks, bases, "color me" images.) of course all stock sources must be fully credited and documented in the deviation, and it is helpful to document raw work that is in fact your own as well.
anything used without permission, like photo-traces of celebrities, NatGeo images, anime and game art, CD covers, etc...
anything incorporating raster elements, patterns, non-vector brushes, and blurs. vexels are excluded for the time being. we'll see what demand looks like.
rules for joining:
anyone can join, who can follow the submission guidelines outlined in red and green.
even if your gallery contains work of the excluded types, of course you can still join.
this gallery is open, anything you submit will be accepted. since i expect the member base of this group to be somewhat exclusive i will monitor the gallery's content for thieved or misplaced work personally.
this group is not anti-trace.
it is anti-theft, for people who can think and draw for themselves. tracing builds practice with vector programs, which can be complicated for beginners; just use your own material or permissible stock.
