TALK THREAD

This is the 2nd half of the NG Print Calendar 2010 Contest thread.

One thread is only for finished art (not this one)

One thread is for discussion, WIP, criticism, detail shots, etc. (this one)

Let's have a clean fight, now come out ARTING!

Hasn't been decided from what I know. I'm guessing it will be pretty similar though.

I'm not that confident in winning this year, because my drawings cant compare to others, but I'll give it a try. Could someone please explain how to get the dimensions listed in the rules?

In case anyone is interested in seeing what was done last year:
2009 Art thread
2009 Talk thread

Page 2 of the talk thread has screen caps of PS and Flash document properties ...and answers some size/res questions. Hopefully that will help.

...talk thread is for talking!! art thread is for art!!! ...and that pic is the center (poster) image that's in the 2009 calendar. There will be a new, completely different piece of staff art in the 2010 calendar.

Hmmmm... this sounds intriguing... too bad I don't have as much time as I used to, but... MAYBE I will try... deadline, however... : OUCH.

Might not make it.
Depends a lot whether I can complete my other projects first.


Sure, we all share one thing. We will all die sooner or later. Thank god.

I got informed by some that I got gypped out of the calendar last year.

I'm not sure I agree, but I'll enter this year as well. at some point. It gives me an incentive to draw, I guess.

Does the 10.75 image get cropped at all? Should we leave room for a bleed area?

Thanks.

lol, knowing you, I'm afraid to say yes. Last years calendar had ONE 'bad' thing in it... sucho's penicorn on the back cover. Yet just two days ago, when I asked my boss for info on another project, he was like "Oh, is it another thing like your calendar? Bad stuff?" ...so, if it's worse then a penicorn, odds are it won't make it in... but it might make the back cover! lol ;)

We haven't finalized a layout for this year ...might end up being the same as 09's ...but for that we had a 'frame' that sat over the images.. and that cut in like a 1/32" on all sides, so no actual bleed needed, just don't run important stuff right to the edges.
