Is your piece a vexel or a vector?
Read this

Remember:
1. Name the program used to make your deviation in the artist's comment!
2. Name the tools and effects you used in your piece in the artist's comment! Tools meaning the tools of the program like pen tool, gradient, etc (as opposed to a mouse or a tablet).
3. If your work is Mixed Medial please tell us what part of your deviation is raster!
4. Name any and all effects, filters, textures or live effects you used to make your work.
5. Make sure your work has been uploaded to Deviantart's Vector, Vexel or Mixed Media galleries.
if you don't do this we will link you to these rules and deny your submission - you can then resubmit of course :aww:

Who can submit?
  • MEMBERS!

Who can become a member?
  • Everyone!

What can we submit?
  • Vector and vexel pieces!
  • We now welcome mixed vector or vexel art. By mixed we mean raster elements that would mean your piece is no longer Vector or Vexel, such as textures, brush work, etc. This work is to be submitted to our "Vection" Folder!
  • vector-artists support pieces!
  • Please No WIPs

How much can we submit?
  • Two deviations per week.

How do we submit?
  • Vector and vexels:
Go to the gallery and select either vexel or vector. Then select a sub folder (like people, animals, objects and so on) that your piece should go in - click the "submit to this folder"-button in the subfolder and you're good to go!
  • Other stuff?
you can submit pieces that support vector-artist to the VA-support folder
all other non-vector or -vexel will be declined - this includes drawings that you think looks like vector or vexel.

I submitted to the wrong folder, what happens now?
  • You can withdraw your submission and resubmit it to the correct folder.
  • If you don't withdraw it your submission will either be declined or moved to the correct folder. But please try to submit to the correct folders.

I made a tutorial, can it be in the gallery?
  • For now, no. You can submit it to the favourites and maybe we will add it to the gallery later on.</strong>

Who decides what is featured in the vector and vexel folders?
  • Your happy admins! We pick out pieces that are superb to feature - later on this might become something the members can vote about :eager:

WHY WAS MY PIECE DENIED?!
  • First off, this is not an insult or anything against your skill level or your art. All it means is that you failed to follow one of our rules.
  • You may have forgotten to tell us the program you used or the tools and effects that you used.
  • You may have submitted to the wrong folder.
  • We will always comment on your submission with a reason, please never delete the pending transaction that appears in your messages and please always check to see if you have a comment on it.
  • Please, no Works In Progress! We want to see your fantabulous finished piece!
  • Please, no collabs!!!

If you read all of this
  • then you are a good member and deserves a hug! :huggle:


- Love from the team!
we are so excited about this!

Hi there,

Thanks for letting me join your group! I'd love to submit one of my artworks for consideration however I'm not really certain where it would best fit in...

[link]

Now technically it's an animal but it is however drawn from inspiration from a real person, is that fan art?

Thanks :D

That piece would be vector-fan art. Basically if you didn't create the character, we count it as fan art.

Hi thanks for the reply! The character (A Cat) is representative of a real person and thus comes the confusion. The artwork and character design are original but are inspired by a living breathing person. Kind of like a muse I guess.

I am just a tad confused as to the format of the submission; if you would guide me here please. I work in Flash so I am vector, I got that bit. But are we submitting a SWF file (In my case) or an exported PNG or something to that effect?

I mainly work with Illustrator, using pen tool, gradients and live effects as drop shadow, outer glow and feather... only to be sure: my works are they considered as vectors?

i supose inkscape is definitely a vector program, which it is. q: so that means all of my artwork is considered vector art because, of course, i use Inkscape! haha. q:

Yes, we just ask you to state that in your description since it's a bit much for us to remember all the programs that our members typically use. We also ask a lot of members this because there seems to be some confusion as to what exactly is allowed in vexels.

Yes, it is. However, if you've used a photo, raster texture or brush, it's a mixed media piece. I recommend checking out the What is Vexel link as well.

Wait, so we HAVE to name the programs, tools and effects when we submit our pieces?
I mean I can understand why but doesn't that sound a bit... too much?
Especially considering how I only use one word in my descriptions.. 6__6

Ok I read it all but I'm a massive dyslexic lol.
Most of my work is "inked" in illustrator.
I have them as Smart Layers in PS.
The coloring is done in PS.

That would make it a Vexel or Mixed piece?

A piece would have to be more than 50% done in vector with raster elements before is can count as a vexel?

It really depends on how you colour it. Technically (on dA) you could do the inking in illustrator, import as smart layers in ps and colour it there (with the vector tools, with vector layers) and it would still be vector.

If you do the inking in illustrator and then import it as smart layers in ps and use raster layers/brushes/effects (really anything other than vector layers) your work would be mixed media.

As long as you have vector in your work it is not a vexel ;)

I took a look at your gallery and most of your work would be classified as digital paintings - doesn't matter that you did the inking as vector :aww:

Hope I made sense, otherwise just ask again :heart:

Hi! I recently completed a black and white vector drawing of actress Louise Brooks, but I'm unsure what folder (if any) would be appropriate for it.

Despite the fact I've read this group's explanations on what constitutes a vexel (and I've read other stuff on the web about it), etc., I'm still a little confused.

If any of the SVG filters in Adobe lllustrator are used (such as the SVG blur) on a vector drawing in Illustrator, is that considered vexel, or mixed media?

When working in Illustrator, I try to stay away from filters like that and just use only gradients/ gradient mesh/ blends...

But in some areas, blends looked awful on this particular drawing, and the software would not permit the use of the gradient mesh tool (it said the path was too complex).

Or, if you would like to just look at the drawing (it's in my gallery here on Deviant Art), and please let me know which folder if any it would go into, I would appreciate it!
Thank you. :)

This is the drawing I'm asking about (I hope this link works, I'm not sure if these comment fields permit links):

name all the crap we did to get the finished product? what's vector what's raster, a little high maintenance aren't we?

and i know, "no one's forcing you to submit your work, and with that attitude we'd rather you didn't anyways."

It's just to me it seems it would be a hell of a lot easier to just the reply to a question when it comes up than to have to go back and add to the artist comment's box and resubmit it then come back here to submit it again.

but what ever.

might be easier for you - but it's not for us. If you want to give us constructive critique on how we do stuff, loose the attitude and we'll listen.

We are 5 moderators handling all the submissions and we are pretty fast acutally. For the record though, some people just submit a comment on the submission page with all the neccesary information and we don't bitch and whine about that - it's a matter of efficiency - if we have all the information available we can help you out more easily.

Have nice day.

did you figure it out?

- you have to go to the vector folder and then choose the appropriate folder from there, those folder are open for submissions ;)

Remember to check if you used gaussian blur or any other photoshop filters which renders your piece a non-vector; these can be submitted to the vections folder :dummy:
