Submission Guidelines

stop! :police:
before you join, please note:





and most importantly:


joining is open, no screening process.
however, failure to follow the rules will result in your immediate removal from the group.
do not join #VV if you only intend to add another group badge to all of your artwork. we are a specialty group, and not all vector art belongs here.



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!


:bulletgreen: anything you drew freehand with any vector program
:bulletgreen: anything you sketched prior to going over with a pen tool
:bulletgreen: even the most minimal designs
:bulletgreen: works in progress,which do not have to be complete vector. glimpses into your process are fine-- and encouraged!
:bulletgreen: 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.


:bulletred: anything used without permission, like photo-traces of celebrities, NatGeo images, anime and game art, CD covers, etc...
:bulletred: 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:

:bulletorange: anyone can join, who can follow the submission guidelines outlined in red and green.
:bulletorange: 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.
i've been looking through groups-- mostly for reviving personal exposure -- and i saw a lot of tumbleweeds in the vector community. so i thought i should post an update here on VV.
this medium and/or style of art has either gone out of fashion or lost its credibility or gone full-niche or something, deviantart doesn't seem to even categorize it anymore in the new format.
maybe it's the unappealing technicality and workload? 3D art seems to be thriving, but also basic HTML formatting has been sunsetted sitewide so it's still a possibility.
maybe it was the redundancy and theft issues? well, heck, nobody who's submitted work to this group or is interested in its mission deserves that stigma!
maybe it's changing trends and stratification in the availability and format of art creation programs, leaning toward painting.
maybe it's the flight-en-masse of vector loudmouths like me years ago, ignoring their groups. who knows.
so while i'm sad and confused by this, things come and go. but i'm back on the site as of last year, so if you find your way onto this page like "hello?" or "wtf is a vector?" know that someone's here to accept submissions and answer comments semi-regularly. submissions are still on an approval basis. but sparky's got the lights on in this dusty ole magic shop.
