We will be including both dynamics in the zine. For the NSFW side zine, we are planning to split each dynamic by section. We understand many people have a preference for a certain dynamic and would prefer not to see the other, so we will release the Haikaveh and Kavetham versions of the NSFW PDF separately, but there will also be a combined layout option if you wish to see both!Are NSFW pieces allowed in our portfolio?
Yes! However, please make sure to tag them properly!Can we submit previous art pieces for the zine?
