[Mod Post] Calendar Artists and Assignments 
23rd-Jan-2007 12:01 pm
Rukia's Smile [Bleach]
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 and myself.

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

    As for the assignments, I threw all of your names into a hat and pulled them out. I did make a few changes because of time constraints a few of you had in your comments to the 'Help Wanted' post. The monthly assignments are:

    March: asmaria
    April: dtn
    May: haya5h1
    June: neptune47
    July: minitsu
    August: juicy_red_lips
    September: xlilcrimx
    October: dbnext *coughcough*
    November: four_winged
    December: fanartist
    January '08: astellecia
    February '08: jen_kat
    March '08: kawaiiairbender
    April '08: fanartist
    May '08: aanisa
    June '08: skyscape7
    July '08: _kazeki_
    August '08: stardust_rain
    September '08: marionette71088
    October '08: mekus
    November '08: hamaru
    December '08: rina_akiyama

    We'll do another announcement for participation for the 2009 calendar sometime in 2008.

    If you guys have any problems with these assignments, please let me know. I can work with the others that have volunteered to see if we can switch up months.

    If at any time you guys have questions, please feel free to email me at any time.

    Thanks a bunch! You guys rock!

    23rd-Jan-2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
    aww ;_; I had volunteered too. ah well, i'm still learning how to do lineart and color on photoshop so it's okay. oh well can't wait to see the finished product ^_^
    23rd-Jan-2007 05:14 pm (UTC)
    If you're still interested... (sorry about my mix up, I thought I had everyone!)... we could use someone for March '08. I just hope I'm not getting too ahead of myself.

    *hands you cookies*
    23rd-Jan-2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
    Awesome! I'll get to workin' on March's! :D
    23rd-Jan-2007 05:25 pm (UTC)
    I volunteered also. Maybe next year.
    23rd-Jan-2007 06:02 pm (UTC)
    Icon love! That scene makes me wibble.
    23rd-Jan-2007 06:19 pm (UTC)
    Lol. I just volunteered also at the old post. Well, if it's possible, can I pass it on for 2008?

    gallery link: http://chiisana-anisa.deviantart.com/gallery/ (just to help you decide)

    And also - love the idea. I think I remember once the similar was tried by the SM community, but it all fell through in the end. Hope this one will be done, and done in such a way it will blow our minds. ^^;
    23rd-Jan-2007 06:33 pm (UTC)
    Sure! We'd love to have entries for 2008. ^_^

    Can I put you down for May '08? Just let me know.

    Well, Berry and I aren't planning to drop the ball on this one. She's got the mad graphic skills, so I know that each month will just be amazing.

    23rd-Jan-2007 07:22 pm (UTC)

    What about size requirements?
    23rd-Jan-2007 07:23 pm (UTC)
    I'm glad you guys are on top of things... I'm making the adjustments to the guidelines now.

    Thanks, hon. *squishes*
    23rd-Jan-2007 07:52 pm (UTC)
    Oooh perfect! *.* I will be able to work on it when Spring Break comes around too, of course that doesn't mean I can work on it now. *doesn't pay attention in class* man my college is weird -_-

    One question, how big do you want our images to be? I can scan pretty big but I don't want to kill my scanner XD;
    23rd-Jan-2007 07:54 pm (UTC)
    Oh whee I'm so damned slow XD Got it then, thanks~!
    23rd-Jan-2007 07:56 pm (UTC)
    So basically think portrait and not landscape eh? Hmm... Actually, it won't matter anyways... I'll give you full permission to mess with my image however you want.

    WUT? I CAN'T DRAW pr0n!? BOOOOO! J/K

    {Laughs at the idea of an x-rated calendar anyways}
    {Laughs even harder at Loyce's clever *coughcough* comment}

    23rd-Jan-2007 08:17 pm (UTC)
    *spits out water*

    You can draw pr0n all you want... *coughhinthintcoug*... just not for the calendar. ~_^

    Though, an X-rated IchiRuki calendar... *big smile*

    As for October... I couldn't help it! You gave me the idea XD
    23rd-Jan-2007 08:15 pm (UTC)
    Mmm, I wish I'd have seen this sooner. I would have loved to have signed up...Perhaps I can do a month for 2008? Preferably October? XD My birthday's in October...<3 If not, thanks anyways, and I think this is a great idea. ♥
    23rd-Jan-2007 08:26 pm (UTC)
    Well consider yourself signed up for October '08. ^_^

    Thanks a bunch for volunteering.

    I think the initial post was lost amongst all of the great drabbles written for Rukia's birthday.
    23rd-Jan-2007 09:00 pm (UTC)
    Heheh... I got the month of my Birthday. Looks like I got plenty of time then. I can't wait to see everyone's submissions. :D
    23rd-Jan-2007 10:50 pm (UTC)
    I think... that I'll try and finish my entry early. >_>; Before I completely forget about it. XD;

    ... I also don't know what I'll be up to or where I'll be by then.
    24th-Jan-2007 01:40 am (UTC)
    Trust me...

    I have no problem getting entries early. Saves me time hunting people down later. XD
    24th-Jan-2007 12:26 am (UTC)
    Oh, I didn't see this! I'd love to help out - you can see some of my stuff over at http://skyscape.deviantart.com
    24th-Jan-2007 01:48 am (UTC)
    YAY!! We'd love to have you! Do you mind working on something for June '08?

    Thank you!!
    24th-Jan-2007 01:34 am (UTC)
    hey hey, wanted to ask if there's a sample of the format that you guys will be using for the calender, like where exactly the dates will be pasted, if possible I'd like to leave a big space for the dates so that my drawing doesn't get faded into the background :) thankew!!

    p.s. it's astellecia, not astellcia XD
    24th-Jan-2007 01:54 am (UTC)

    I'm going to work up a few examples for people... just give me a few days to work on them. We are going to try and keep the images in their original forms, so hopefully the examples will help.

    Sorry! I fixed it.
    24th-Jan-2007 01:46 am (UTC)
    Hey I would like to sign up for Jun 08? XD
    24th-Jan-2007 02:04 am (UTC)
    I've already gotten a sign up for June '08... Do you mind having an extra month and offering a beautiful picture for July '08?

    24th-Jan-2007 03:43 am (UTC)
    Can I have a month too? Whatever month left is fine, but preferably September :)
    24th-Jan-2007 01:01 pm (UTC)
    September '08 it is! ♥ Loyce will add you to the list when she gets a chance.
