Welcome to the Graphics Designers' Circle (aka GDC)!

The Graphics Designers' Circle (GDC) is a group where artists can come together to help one another improve through offering critique, suggestions, and exchanging links to helpful resources and tutorials. Though catering mostly to digital artists and photomanipulators, all artists are welcome to join.

:bulletgreen: Anyone is welcome to join!
:bulletgreen: While you're at it, why not join our forum?

Submitting Art + Resources
:bulletgreen: Members are allowed to submit their own artwork and resources to the gallery, though they require approval. I will try to be fair about this and if you feel I am not, please let me know. Also, please make sure to submit your deviations to the correct gallery folders. We have an assortment of folders to make finding things easier for our members.
:bulletgreen: Members are also allowed to submit others' artwork and resources to the gallery. This also requires approval, but, again, I will try to be fair about this.
:bulletgreen: Try not to overload the gallery all at once. People will more likely look at your pieces if you just submit one or two at a time.
:bulletgreen: Members can also submit deviations to the Featured section as long as it's by someone else. This also requires approval.
:bulletgreen: New members will automatically get something featured in our gallery!
:bulletgreen: For more information, take a little leap over here.

:bulletgreen: The GDC also offers a forum, where members can chat, request critique on artwork, and share helpful resources.
:bulletgreen: It is highly recommend you join the forum as well as joining our group!

Hello, artists - tpontow here!
I'd just like to remind everyone submitting art that we would like to only have three pieces submitted to the "Featured" folder, per artist. I've seen lots of people submitting everything to the Featured folder, and while it is all great art, we'd like to show off a variety of different artists. So remember, three pieces (at the most) to the Featured folder, and everything else to Member's Artwork, Resources, Art for Critique, or Stock.

Also, don't forget to join the community at our forum! It's been a bit slow during these lazy summer months, but we'd love to see some fresh faces there, blowing life into our boards.

Hi, I'm a new member after I saw the stunning work of *opaque-studios submitted here. I read where you are wanting stock submitted so I joined. However, the stock folder is turned off where members are unable to submit. I wasn't sure if you guys were aware of this or not.

I combed over the admin controls and I'm not sure why this was occurring. I fiddled around with some things, so maybe try again? Sorry you ran into a stumbling block.
opaque-studios Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2010
Firstly, thank you for joining. :D
Secondly.. I'm not one hundred percent sure.. But I believe only contributors can add pieces to the different galleries, including the stck folder.
So maybe rejoin as a contributor?
I'm not completely sure, sorry. =/

I'll try. However, I can submit to ALL of the other folders. I've submitted a young girl's art to the "features" folder. But, I will try to see about the Contributors. :)
