Ugh. School is grinding down. Last class and all my big work is due August 3. Luckily, I took 3 days off this week and next, so I'm going to buckle down and just WORK for five days. This last Saturday is the last day off I get until everything is turned in. I celebrated by sleeping for sixteen hours and returning cat brushes. \o/

[personal profile] timetobegin asked me how to "get unnatural or different colours to look natural [...] and blended in with the icon" and gave these examples:



[livejournal.com profile] cool_spectrum asked how I "manage to get [my] coloring to look like this:"



I use Photoshop CS4, but try to mention alternatives whenever I use PS-specific tools.


The difference between those two sets of examples is that the first set is more pastel, the second is more vibrant. But the coloring I use is pretty similar for all of them (except the Expanse icon, which is created using Gradient Maps at Normal blend mode, for which I wrote a tutorial last year).

Now for the guide, I will be using the Tahani icon as my main example. I will show steps from the other examples where they fit.

This was a lot of fun! I almost couldn't stop adding more example layers... *G*

I hope the guide is useful to you! I'll happily answer all your questions in case anything is unclear.

IT’S ART TIME!!


To claim a story you want to do art for, please drop a comment below with:

FIRST CHOICE – Story Number: #
SECOND CHOICE – Story Number: #
Email Address:

Remember: first come, first serve!! (*Next year, we will try out the Preview Day thing.)

Sign ups for artists as well as this claim post will remain open until all fanfics get claimed! Get all your friends out to come take on some art! If you're willing to sign up as a Pinch Hit Artist, go here.

After you have claimed your story, you will receive an email from the mods with your writer's name & info, and the snippets they provided (it may not be immediate, but it should be within 24-48 hours). Authors: you will receive an email with your artist’s information once your fic has been claimed. Artists and authors are not required to chat, but it’s highly encouraged that you work with each other in whatever manner works for both of you. :)

What are the requirements for art?
You can make whatever kind of art you feel like, in whichever medium. Drawing, painting, digital, manips, vids, fanmix, fabric, mixed media, anything you can think of. We just ask that you put some time and genuine effort into it, as our authors have put major effort into their story. You are required to make a minimum of ONE piece of art for the story you claim. MORE IS BETTER. We love more! We want more! But, based on feedback from prior year’s artists, we only have a requirement of one piece of artwork.

Make it nice, put some serious effort into it! :)

(more questions about Art and Claims and stuff? Check out our FAQ.)

~

CLAIMS:

For the first round of claims, please only choose ONE story to do. We will shortly open it up to a second round, where you may claim a second and third fic if you so wish. If you’re super ambitious and desperately want to do more than three, talk to the mods and/or leave a comment and we’ll see what we can do - you must complete what you claim, however, if at all possible. Trying to find back-up artists is a nightmare - please don’t make us do it. ;) And a reminder that no extensions will be granted. Artists, if you have the time, please consider also signing up to be a pinch hit artist in the event someone has to drop out last minute.

Art and Fics Due - August 26th, 11:59 PM (Midnight) PST (here is a timezone converter.)

The following are all listed alphabetically by first fandom (i.e. in an Supernatural/Avengers crossover, it will only be listed under Supernatural).

go forth and claim! )

2017: Pinch Hit Artist Sign Ups

How does this work?
What's going to happen is that when we have artist drop out in August, we'll send out an email to the artists who are willing to pinch hit - the means creating art, probably fast or very fast, depending on how late the original dropped out. All the artists who are interested and wiling will quickly email back if they can take on the project - first come, first serve. They will receive the relevant information (snippets, author contact, etc).

What do I have to do for art?
Check the original Artist Sign Up post for all the information. If you are interested in pinch hitting, sign up on THIS POST.

What's the timeline like on these?
It will depend on when the original artist drops. For example, if they drop in early August, then you'll basically have the whole month. But if they drop at the end of August, you may only have a few days. While we are taking a hard stance on no extensions, the mods will work closely with our Amazing Pinch Hitting Artists to ensure the deadline is doable (ex. if we lose an artist on Submission Day, the mods will of course give the pinch hitter who scoops their fic a few days to complete the art.) We will talk timeline when (and if) we end up needing to send Pinch Hit art emails.

We'll need the following info from you:

I have read the sign-up rules and the FAQ post: Y/N
LJ and/or DW Name:
AO3 Name:
Email:

To sign up as a pinch hitting artist, copy and paste the text below into a new comment and fill in the lines.



Artists and Non-Artists: please spread the word! We need LOTS of artists for our beautiful authors, so tell your arty friends, link them here, drag them kicking and screaming. ;D
