Frequently Asked Questions
Why the fascination with big bellies?
For a number of people, there is nothing quite as attractive, stirring or intriguing as a round tummy. This group serves as a place to dive deeper into this curiosity. Ranging from feasible bellies (pregnancy and weight gain), to extreme self-imposed methods (stuffing and inflation) and even fantasy scenarios (berry inflation, male pregnancy and vore), there is no shortage of variety at BigBellyDrawings.
I like the artwork here. How do I follow updates?
DeviantWatch the group! Click the 'Deviantwatch' button in the top right hand corner, to follow the group, like any other artist! Please note, that you will receive all artwork submitted to the group, including mature artwork, and potentially irrelevant artwork.
What sets BigBellyDrawings apart from other belly-centric Deviantart groups?
BigBellyDrawings was one of the first groups to open up the submission process, and offer immediate submission to all. Additional gallery categorization is handled by the group staff. It's this approach that has made BigBellyDrawings one of the most popular belly groups on Deviantart, and what makes it the simplest place to share your belly artwork, with thousands of dedicated Deviants.
Won't I receive poor quality artwork in addition to high quality? / I don't think my artwork would meet 'standards' set by the group.
Our ultimate aim is to index every belly-centric artwork submission on Deviantart regardless of skill or style. Unless the submission breaks our core rules, there are exceptions to what's permitted. Artwork will never be removed from the gallery unless it breaks a core rule from the group rules above.
Why can't artwork be sorted into a greater range of categories? (e.g. Fan-art, Mature and Clean)
While this was experimented with in the past, it proved far too time-consuming to maintain. For individual tastes, consider joining or creating a separate group. You can find a selection of our affiliates on the front page, and we'd love to help promote the wider belly community on Deviantart!
Why do we have a "Small Tums" section for slimmer, more "normal" bellies, if this group is all about forms of belly expansion?
We believe that particular non-expansion images can captivate those with a belly interest, particularly new members exploring their interest. Non-expansion images are permitted, provided the belly it's core subject. Including less expansion-focused belly imagery can be a fantastic way for people to discover more specific preferences.
Can I advertise my page/commissions/etc. this group?
We've reintroduced our "For Hire" section in our gallery where artists can post information/deviations in regards to being open for commission/trades/YCH etc. and their prices. Please do not leave advertising for yourself or others or ask about requests in comments on the group or it's galleries.

I've found some artwork in the wrong category! What should I do?
Due to the high number of incoming submissions, it's possible that artwork has been categorized incorrectly. The group staff frequently monitor the gallery to ensure artwork is appropriate and in the correct category, but it may take some time. Please send a Note, with the related artwork, and how you'd like to see it categorized in the group.
I'm an artist unassociated with the group, but I receive unwanted submission notifications.
Deviantart groups allow staff to nominate any piece of artwork on Deviantart into their group. To stop these requests, please contact staff through sending us a Note and we will block you from our group, preventing future notifications.
