Hey all!

Juno's... er... GENTLE prodding has inspired me to actually post something here! If you've been getting EW emails or read my journal you know I've been in some crazy shit lately.

I haven't had any fan art in a while, so I'm hoping to spark some interest here. How about... na EW fan art contest?

[This post has been edited for clarity. Read on.]

CONTEST RULES

1 // All entries must be scalable to 5.5"x7". They can be either landscape or portrait, but for the sake of possible inclusion in future print issues of Empty Words, these relative dimensions are necessary. Bleed is not necessary. Email all entries as 72dpi RGB JPGs (at least 600 pixels for the longest side) to . The first place winner will have to eventually submit a version of the file that is at least 5.5"x7" @ 300dpi, so plan for this from the start!

2 // All media in the creation of fan art are acceptable, but I am looking for static images. Be creative! Send a photo of a sculpture, or create some awesome cut-n-paste artwork and scan it. Don't just think Photoshop! Use pens, pencils, brushes, markers, paint, glue, your cat, whatever you like.

PRIZES

First Place // A free copy of Empty Words: Book One (with sketch), and inclusion of your entry into the next print issue of Empty Words*

Second & Third Place // A free copy of Empty Words: Book One (with sketch)

All entries // Inclusion in the Empty Words website fan art section (of course!)

* By submitting an entry you agree to your artwork's possible inclusion in future print version of Empty Words, and agree that I may publish your entry in relation to Empty Words without paying royalties to you, the original creator.

Are we allowed to post our fanart for this contest online, as well? [i.e. a deviantART gallery]
I just want to know in advance, just in case.

Note that I will not be planning to make prints of these, myself.

Oh god yes. I just added that disclaimer so that no one would expect payment if I print their art in my book. I'm not buying the artwork: you're in effect lending it to me.

Your submissions are still, of course, yours. I will not take ownership of them; I just reserve the right to print them in regards to EW. You can do whatever you want with the artwork because it's still yours.

Hope that clears things up!

The usage of artwork in the book should never be thought of as the contributor owing the comic anything. THat should be an honor in my opinion... or at least that's how I would take it. ^_^

Hey, this sounds good. Can we go back to some of our older fan art images and edit them up? I've sent in one fan art image that I think if I tweek just right would be good. Would you accept that?

I would have to say that you can submit older artwork only if it is significantly upgraded or revised. I say this because, selfishly speaking, I want new fan art. :)

Wow, I'm SO not on the ball yet. I'm extending my original deadline: you all now have until January 16, 2005.

Yeah, I already knew I would have to update it significantly. Just asking if I can use the same position and regular art, just wanting to finish it out, add color, etc. Or I may get ambitious and start a whole new thing. I just wanted to make sure you could deal with it.

Okay I have to drawing ready and scanned (that needs some work.) but I can't send it to the address provided. I don't have a way to get to it and email from there. I will have to review this post for an alternative way, but that will take much of my needed time which I have to take for studying Psychology and Anatomy & Physiology. Sorry for the total screwups on my part.
