Well, if you really have you're heart set on him you can use him. I just try to have variety in the calendar but I don't want any broken hearts...haha. There is also the issue of judging if it comes to that. If two submissions feature the same character then chances are only one will make it into the calendar, so keep that in mind.

Still if you're heart is set, I won't stop you.  ;D

I'm not on Facebook so I have no clue what's going on there. Nice to hear the calendar is receiving positive feedback.  ;D

Just as a bit of a clarification, the theme for 2020 is Our Favourites which means I want you to be able to work with the character(s) you want to work with. That being said, let's still try and keep things as varied as possible. The operative word here is try. Nothing is set in stone and I'm not going to say no you can't. Unless the concept you have is exactly the same as someone else's, then I'll have to ask for you to think of something different.

I want this to be enjoyable (since that was the point of having such an open theme). However, I also want the calendar to be an interesting collection of submissions (if possible). I know there are some serious fan favourites out there but if the months consist of mostly the same characters that might get a little tedious. So do your best to choose someone not on the list but if your hearts desire is already there, so be it.  ;D

@Wildfire Yes, it has been waning. Which is why I want to make the calendar project a bit less of a chore (for lack of a better word). It isn't disappearing, hopefully it will just be more organic and enjoyable for those who are able to contribute.

Not sure how many of you (if any) have ordered a printed version of the calendar this time around. I just received mine in the mail and it looks pretty good. The only issue I have with mine is the image for November is bigger than the other ones in the calendar.

Otherwise the colour and quality isn't bad at all.

@Wildfire - My pleasure, I love my calendar organizer job. Thank you all for participating!

Alright, so a few of you really want to start a thread to discuss the 2020 calendar theme but I'll have to disappoint you and say we aren't doing that this year. The calendar guidelines for the 2020 calendar have already been posted and a theme is in place.

The reason; I think this will be our last calendar. Not last in the strict sense but last as in, the last one I'm going to organize in this way.

I love being in charge of the fan calendar but each year less people can commit to it, the artwork is sometimes rushed because everyone is working last minute and even the printed version is in jeopardy at this point. Next year I'm going to run things a bit differently and simply get together with those who still want to continue and we can discuss themes and do all the artwork to fill the calendar ourselves. If there's 12 of us awesome but if there's only 5 then we divide up the work and go ahead with things anyway. No voting, no running around after people, no last minute dropouts, no judging. Just those who want to and have the time to help create the calendar.


If you would like to get involved this year visit the thread and please take a moment to read things through before you jump in.  ;) http://www.elfquestfanart.com/index.php?topic=442.msg7865#new

The theme for the 2019 EQ Fan Art Calendar is: OUR FAVOURITES

**You may use characters from the original quest to the final quest but you must do your best not to spoil things for those who have not yet read the most recent installment of the series**

Submissions for the 2020 Calendar are being accepted:
February 5th, 2019 through October 31st, 2019

THEME

Submitted artwork should represent the theme "Our Favourites"

This theme is meant to be easy and enjoyable. Please represent your favourite character(s), moments, the things you love best about Elfquest, etc. Whatever you like (within reason please). Please note, reproductions of scenes already portrayed in the EQ saga will not be accepted. You need to be more creative. Look at the scene from a different angle, or another characters perspective. Carbon copies are a no, no.

Number of submissions required: 11 (I will do the cover and that artwork will also be included in the calendar this year).

DETAILS

• You must first post to the thread that you would like to participate. Don't give any details, just say... "I'm in!" or "I would like to participate this year". I will contact you once I know you want to be a part of the calendar to find out what your concept is.

• Once you have been contacted by me, you will be required to send me a brief description of your concept as well as a list of all the characters you plan to use and which ones are the main focus. Please have an alternate idea in mind, in case someone ahead of you on the list has a similar idea.

Please copy and paste the following into the PM with all fields filled in:

Your Name:
EQFA User Name:
Artist Credit (Real or User only):
Email Address:
Description of Concept:
Character Choice:


• As they come in I will post which characters are being used to the thread (how they are being used and who is using them will be kept secret). Let's try and keep things as varied as possible.

• You will be asked to update Maggie in June with your progress. This will help to determine if we will have enough entries for the calendar. If at any time you feel you cannot continue just send a message, there won’t be any hard feelings.

• Please keep in mind that you have approx. 8 months to get your submission ready, which should be more than enough time. If there is no response to the request for progress I will have to assume you are no longer participating and I will have no choice but to find a replacement artist. Communication is key, so please keep in touch.

• You may submit up to three entries for the calendar but before you contemplate that second or third entry you must first finish and submit one entry to Maggie.

GROUPS

• You may work in groups of two if that makes things easier for you. Please let me know who you will be working with when you sign up.

• How you work in your group is totally up to you. One of you may supply a sketch for the other to ink and colour or you may work together to complete the scene. It doesn’t matter so long as you both agree.

CONTENT

• Entries must be original artwork created specifically for the calendar. The use of photos or "borrowed" art for backgrounds is not allowed.

• Entries must not be available for the general public to view online until the okay is given for general sharing. Before then, any entries found online in any form (thumbnails, crops, etc.) will be disqualified and removed.

• Canon Elfquest characters (of any race) only. No what-if characters (i.e., Worldpool).

• PG-13 or under.

FORMAT

**Please make sure your submissions are the correct size. Any submissions that are not 3300x2550 pixels or 11 x 8.5 inches at 300dpi will not be accepted**

• All entries should be in full color, with some type of a background. No font please.

• Size: 11"x 8.5" (pictures must be landscape oriented - wider than they are tall)

• Resolution: 3300 x 2550 pixels (11" x 8.5" at 300dpi)

• File format: JPEG/PNG format only

HOW TO SUBMIT

• When you are ready please email your full-sized entry to Maggie. Please PM Maggie when you have an entry ready to be submitted.

• Entries must be received by midnight CST, October 31, 2019.

Include the following:

• Your submission as an attachment not embedded into an email.

• Title of your submission. Titles will be included on the calendar.

CREDIT

• The artist credit will be used for credits on the calendar/website.

PUBLISHING

• The eleven winners will be chosen by a panel of judges (if more than 11 entries are submitted).

• The finished calendar will be available for download at elfquestfanart.com. In addition, the calendar may be published and available for purchase.

QUESTIONS

• Any questions about the calendar may be asked and answered on this thread or PM Maggie.

Alright, so as you may know already RedBubble no longer makes calendars so it was a bit of a scramble this year to get a printed version together. But as luck would have it the wonderful Rob Beschizza (who assists each year with the printed version) was able to get some printed up for us and they are now available to buy on the EQ.com site.

Unfortunately I'm not the decision maker when it comes down to who will print the calendars, that is up to Mr. Pini and his staff.

You're right the theme isn't affected by this but not having a printed option changes things, like the timeframe which is why I'm waiting. It may also be that people want to opt out if there isn't a printed version so I want to make sure I have all the details before any threads are opened about the upcoming calendar.

If that makes it difficult to participate I'm sorry about that but like I said, I don't have the power to decide anything about the printed version. We need to be respectful and wait.

Discussion for the 2020 calendar is on hold for a bit. The site that the printed calendar used to be published on no longer makes calendars. We are looking into alternatives.

This development may end up changing the calendar details slightly, so I figured there was no point in going ahead until I know more about the future of the printed version of the calendar.  ;)

Kind of off topic but if you didn't see it yet here is Richard Pini talking about the EQ fan book that a lot of you participated in: https://youtu.be/2KECC6Cc1Ds?t=15m57s

Don't worry, I should have enough art for the calendar. A few people stepped in to do some extra artwork and a couple of people asked for an extension so things are up in the air but I think it should all be ok. If I do need any more I'll post my plea here.  ;)

Got my picture done. It says to let Maggie know to expect it. I guess I’m gonna send it cause I did not get a response to the pm I sent. I’m sure she’s busy, just a wanna make sure it is not lost in the shuffle.

I replied to your PM on the 22nd. ;)

Things have been keeping me from the site, so sorry. Just wanted to visit and ask how the calendar participants are doing on their submissions. Feel free to post here or send me a PM with an update.

Also if anyone still wants to join in please let me know.  ;D
