If chosen, you will recieve a free badge as well as a free artist's alley table.

Requirements are that it be 8.5x11, 300 dpi, CYMK color, and TIFF format.

Is there any sort of theme you're going for?  Any sort of hint would help, even though I've already got an idea planned out.  But knowing now would let me change it before I finished it already, and valuable time, and blah blah.  :)

All the guidelines are is that it be fitting for the convention.  I'll post links to our logo and our chop for people to use:


Kumoricon logo

Secondary "Chop" logo

As for the dpi/CYMK/etc stuff, that all has to do with it being a digital file.  If you're scanning in your artwork, you'll want to use those settings on your scanning program.

Yup, or if you've already paid for your badge, you can pawn it off to one of your friends, or we can give you your money back.

Artist Alley is a place in the exhibit hall, near the art show, where artists can have a table to display and sell their artwork.

You  can submit as many as you like, but only 1 will be the winner.  And you can submit either, but I suggest color, since that's what the cover will be in.

Would it be ok if we included the hotel that K-Con will be at in the BG or will that be against any regulations?
As well...there isn't any kind of specification for the "mascot" as far as I understand correct?

Using the Doubletree hotel is fine if you're drawing it, photos require approval from the hotel.

CYMK is a color format, sort of like greyscale and RGB
TIFF is a special format for pictures, similar to .jpeg and .bmp
i believe 300 DPI is a setting for high resolution

adobe photoshop might be the best way to change your picture to meet their needs

i'm sorry for asking another question, but does it matter the way you color it? for example: adobe v. prisma? i'm personally better with adobe and dont have any supplys to color it traditionally.

Wooo! After about 14 hours of working on this sucker, I'm done! ^^

Sean - It will not be emailed by me personally, because my email is a FAILURE. It refuses to work on my computer. So it'll be sent by someone with the email ronime@ronime.net. It'll be clear that it's mine, but just to make sure I'm including this little heads up. ^^

say your picture contains specific characters from series, how should one go about handeling the whole copyright thing?

Sorry, I just got back from AX, it's been a busy weekend.

We would prefer an original character, and they will be given preference, but if your artwork is outstanding, then we'll work with the companies on the copyright issues.
