Thanks to all of you for volunteering to help out with the calendar project. We've had some amazing artists sign up to help goldberry
Our hope is to have the first month of the calendar out and available for download on March 1st. *crosses fingers* Until then, we can only dream of what these artists will come up with.
Seriously, thank you guys so much for tossing your hats into the ring. I know that this calendar is going to look fabulous with all of your combined works and I can't wait to get started putting it together.
I'm going to take some of haya5h1
's suggestions to add to the calendar. Thanks, hon! Your input was welcomed. ^_^
So, here are a few guidelines...You have complete freedom with what you come up with for each month. You can theme it to the month you're working on, or not. It's totally up to you.
We'd like to keep the images PG-13 at the most. Since some of the members might be putting these up in public settings, I'd rather not get a parent emailing me about providing their child smut.
You can use color or black/white. We prefer you send us the digital file as GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PS.
Size Requirements: The plan is to make the calendar fit on a piece of 8.5"x11" paper, so that it's easy to print out. You can make your image that big, but we will have to fade it in the background for the calendar. If you're going to make your image fit portrait or landscape, I would say you want it no bigger than 1/3 of the page.
All images are due by the 20th of the month prior to your calendar being due. Example: If you've been assigned April, we'd like to have your image by the 20th of March, so we have time to work it up into the calendar format. Of course, we will be forgiving if you're a day or so late. We aren't complete dictators around here. XD And if you finish your entry early... even months early, go ahead and send them to us.
Email your image to: lemonyloyce @ livejournal.com and berrygold @ livejournal.com
