members can submit to the group gallery. To join the group, simply click the "Join Group" button on the front page - you will be auto-accepted.
When you want to submit artwork, go to the #vexelove Gallery
and choose the appropriate folder to submit your work to. Below is a list of the gallery folders and what will be accepted into them. Only folders you can submit to are listed.
You are only allowed to submit your own work.
You may submit 1 deviation a week so as not to overload our watchers' inboxes!
Only true Vectors and Vexels are allowed into the group gallery - if you have used any raster textures, filters, brushes or other elements which would render your piece as mixed media will not be accepted.
To help us with getting submissions sorted quickly, please make sure you submit to the correct folders, and help us out by writing what program & tools you used in the artist description to your deviation.
If your piece is declined and you're not sure why, please leave a polite
