Again, as a content hub, sharing your art is always welcomed. However, don’t just come and throw in your portfolio and leave.

  • We do not allow portfolios, but rather art projects
  • Your art project needs to have a written story to accompany it
  • By that, we mean the inspiration behind the project, a description, and most importantly, full credits
  • If you are publishing a collaborative project, it’s your responsibility to make sure all the team is okay with the content getting published. If we receive any complains for someone on the team, you will be banned.
