Whatever standards you set for yourself. If you think in terms of how the story will work along with the illustrations, you should be fine!

No nerve required!! This isn't a typical 'collab' ...you just pick a story from the list above (or write your own), and you draw ALL of the art for it! So no patterns unless it fits your story!!

k... I think I'm caught up! lol!! :D

I saw one of the stories- "Easy", and just for fun thought I'd take a crack at recording it. Check it out if you want. You can use it in the story collab if you want. I know it's probably not the correct procedure for contributing the VA stuff, but it was really just for fun, so if you don't use it that's fine.

Ok, well, I don't know why I keep doing stuff when I should be working on other stuff, but I made a pic about the story I wrote for this project. I'm not sure if I want to actually be the illustrator for the whole story yet, since I'm pretty busy, but if I do, then this would be the first panel.

Um.. dude why not? I mean it is going to be in the collab probably. So why can't he post it up here? It's not like we aren't going to see it anyway.

Anyway, the only things that I could come up with were Xmas songs. >.< I couldn't really come up with a story so to say, but the Xmas songs tell a story in themselves. Would this still be alright to use?

I think that is a pretty good idea, as long as the artist doesn't mind doing it. If you use an old song try to make it original in some significant way. Like jingle bells, but with a family of actual bells. That was just an example, but you get the idea. It would allow you to write and them to animate something with a slant.

Or, you could use a really obscure christmas carol. *shrug*

As long as the story is interesting and entertaining, any length should do. Just remember someone will be doing illustrations for it, so don't make it too much or no one will want to tackle it! (condense and edit!)

Hmm, I'm going to make two songs, whether they are used in this project or not is fine in my opinion, but I enjoy making them anyway. By that I mean I'm writing the lyrics to the song, not literally making the song. Here is an example of the one that I have written right now.

I will shortly make an actual story though.

I'm glad to see this is getting a lot of love and support on the Art Forum.

I am going to tentatively say I'm in. The only reason I say tentatively is because I don't even know if I can fit this into my schedule or not. So, I'm in..for something anyway. I'll look at the stories and see if there is one that I might be able to illustrate with artistic efficiency...

Actually, I think I want to do "Girl with the Bee" by VanillaBear, if nobody has called that yet. It's rather short, and I could probably get away with doing somewhere between 6 and 8 illustrations if I was very smart about it. Then again, it might depend on what the designated image size ends up being.

So, yeah, that's my tentative choice. Let me get some concept sketches done before I completely commit to it. If someone else has already chosen this one, or if anybody else wants to do it with me, then I'd be very interested in collaborating with you. Or if VanillaBear has someone else in mind, I'm fleixble and can find something else.

I would more whole heartedly commit to this, I just don't feel like I can commit to anything at the moment.

Anyway, I'm glad this is up and running. Maybe I can have some concept stuff for you by Christmas.
