I have some important news concerning the Gargoyles Group Picture Project. Infos and the updated rules about the project can be found here: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…First
of all, the project has it's own journal style
now so that you can recognize entries concerning the project easier.Second
: I recieved a reply to my e-mail to the Gathering staff. They said we are allowed to show the final picture at the Gathering but we must purchase the space for it. "There is a $10 charge per display board to help cover the cost of renting the boards. Each display board is approximately 4'x4'. Table space is also available for $10 for one 6'x2' table."
Azrael and me would pay for 2 display boards for the picture. But we have to make sure that we really WILL HAVE a picture to display at the Gathering. So I - like
suggested - I ask you all for WIPs
. Please, as soon as you start your picture send me a WIP. If you already starded, please send me a WIP. Please hand in at least one WIP for each character you want to draw till April 15th. That makes it easier for me to figure out how many pictures I will recieve in the end and I can already start with the background and plan how to arrange the characters.
However, I asked if the final picture could be given to Greg and they replied: "As for giving the finished image to Greg, that's probably not going to be possible, because it will have a lot of non-canon content in it. Since the Gargoyles story is still very much alive and being worked on, he tries to avoid a lot of fan-character influence. Less chance of mixing up or accidentally using another's ideas, among other reasons. If the answer changes, though, we'll definitely let you know. "
I totally understand this and now I ask you: what else could we do with the image? My suggestion would be to try the silent auction at the Gathering: " The Gathering of the Gargoyles 2007 does not require artists to sell their work, but if an artist wishes to offer artwork for sale, we provide a means. There are two ways to sell your work at The Gathering 2007 Art Show.
The first option is the fixed price method. You can give the item a set sale price, for example, $20.00. In this case, the item would be sold to the first buyer willing to pay your price.
The second option is the silent auction. If you wish to participate in the silent auction, your art will be given bid sheet. Interested buyers will write their names and bids on your piece's assigned auction sheet. Once you have three bids on your sheet, your item will proceed to the live auction. There, it will be presented to the audience for bidding, starting at the price of the highest bid on the silent auction sheet. Once bought, all items will remain in the art room until paid for at the end of the convention."
I don't think that we would earn that much but maybe... at least a little? If anyone would buy the picture we could give the money to ... the gathering staff as a donation? I don't know. => What would you do with the picture when it is finished? <=
Please make suggestions and let us think about it together!Third
: I need people to draw the canon characters. If you are interested, please tell me!
Goliath and Garg-Elisa were alrady given to ~purplegoldfish
, Lexington will be drawn by ~Galax
will draw Demona, ~Nebulan
is working on Hudson and Bronx
Brooklyn, Broadway and Angela are still searching for an artist to draw a nice picture of them
(Keep in mind: drawing a canon character does not fall under the 2-characters-rule. You still can add two fan characters to the pic, if you want to!)
