What about instead of movie posters, we do comic front pages? Aka, we take our favorite storylines (like Forevergreen) or character developments (like Clearbrooks journey from being on the war path to forgiving Two-Edge) and run with it?

Do you mean to put Clearbrooks journey in one Comic front page/cover? As if that was a single serie and what would a cover look like?

My top two
Villains and Hero's
Seasons

As both are not named so far it dosen't matter If they are not voted. I'm totally in for everything else!

What will AnonDraw be used for? Do I have to draw my entry in there - If so, I'm out.

@Yavia - No, AnonDraw will be set up for those who need some assistance/critique. It's just a way for those people participating in the calendar to view each other's work without anyone else seeing it. For suggestions and guidance not to make a finished piece of artwork. You/everyone participating will work on your actual submission as you always have done, not in AnonDraw. ;)

I am in again for sketches/line art.  Sorry I am late to the party.

Seasons - Lesser known characters - Friendships; all combined would work.

And we could do a splash page (the first page in the story that sets up the scene - usually a whole page.) if a similar layout was being suggested for continuity.

Is format a thing now?
I have to admit I do have problems get get my head around that. What does that mean? The theme long friendship (for example) put in a storyline (???) and only draw the first page of it? Or draw only the cover? Have there to be speech bubbles and a framing around it?

Wendy often begins her Comics with a whole page - but we will draw also one page - I can imagine every entry from last calendar's as a Frontpage or first page. So, what is the difference?
It will be a upright format (portrait) that will be a difference.

@Yavia, the calendar format will be as it is always...landscape-oriented. We've already done a comic style calendar in 2013 (Every Picture Tells a Story) but that was when I was able to get a calendar that was portrait-oriented. That is not an option so a comic book style format wouldn't be great for a future calendar.  Plus we've already done it, so doing it again probably won't happen.

Please don't get stressed, the calendar will have the same core group of rules/instructions as it has always had. There will just be a few new elements (like AnonDraw and a dedicated section on the boards for participants).  ;)

@Tah-Marien - That's what the thread is for, chatting about ideas.  ;)

Also, the poll is up! You have 7 days to choose 1 theme from the list. The rules/guidelines for the 2021 calendar will be posted once the poll is over.

Hi everyone! This is honestly my first time here and my first chance at being a part of the Fan Calendar.

I absolutely love the idea of Lesser-known Characters but I could settle for Longtime Friends.

Just really excited to get started on something soon.

Hope to make some new friends!

Hello and welcome, Heidi.
I won't spoil anything but currently one choice seems to be running away. But we'll see in the end.

Most topics seem okay to me, though I would have ideas for one which sadly currently isn't in top position.
But I wonder if I'll have the time at all to participate, workload at the job is high and there's zero downtime due to a certain virus. (On the other hand I might be happy to still have a job that fairly fits my qualifications.) Well, time will show. But good to see more people around here in general.

Hello Heidi and welcome to the group.  :)

Happy to have someone new wanting to participate in the fan calendar.  ;D The guidelines will go up sometime next week, the poll ended today and Lesser Knows is the top pick. I still need to get the rules/guidelines in place before anyone gets started on their submissions. So watch this space for updates.  ;)

Lesser-Known Characters has won the poll so that will be our 2021 theme. I think we should discuss what's meant by lesser-known. I was thinking a combo of unseen/lesser-seen characters from the comics including ones that maybe haven't been given any or much love in the calendars over the past several years.

Obviously characters like Cutter, Skywise, Leetah, Rayek, and the popular couples Redlance/Nightwood and Strongbow/Moonshade wouldn't be eligible. They're quite well-represented fan art-wise as I'm sure you all know. I would also like to represent all the tribes this year (if possible).

So let's have a bit of a back and forth about this topic so I can include any pertinent information in the rules and guidelines.

Lastly Kimo is taken, so no need to discuss him at all.  ;D

Kimo is overrepresented. :p ;)

I guess most characters where people have names present at their tongue could be ruled out then.

What means "unseen" characters? That would be either an entirely fictional char. or the very very rare occurence of a character that is only talked about (yet) but not seen. Like the grand-grandchildren of some tribe or aaaaancient ancestors.

Lesser-seen would be easier since we probably could spot some elf/human/troll/preserver/wolf/whatever that occurs in only one or two panels and maybe doesn't even have a name. At least two elven characters would already be on my mind, one from original quest and one from FQ.
