Hi, yes, usually if an effect could be relatively easily achieved by hand it is fine for the gallery. We can't guarantee what way it was done just by looking at it. See also submission rule 5.
However, in this particular case there seems to be another effect going on that causes a lot of extra colors (600+), would you be able to clean that up gennoveus? Thank you!
I always thought no but I've seen others get through into the gallery. It would be nice to have some clarity on this
To other PJ members: I've noticed the rules have become a bit more relaxed recently. Is a transparent layer like this accpetable?
