Hey Crew, I know we can't make it all to Mew Con but we do have a pending thirty-minute presentation for our cause scheduled and I was thinking this might be a cool way to get all or most of our members involved:
I'd like each of us to submit a single page doujinshi comic and try to cram as many panels into the page(6-panels minimum). Also if your fan-fic friends want to submit a one page fanfic tell them to sign up at the forum and I'll send them an email.
So what will the challenge entries be used for? The last part of my Linux presentation at MewCon is about layout (meaning the book design phase of production) and basically I was thinking we could go ahead and print a mini-doujinshi right there at the panel and then I could post the PDF for you all to download and print and give out.
Let me know if you think this is a good idea... I'm trying to keep this dream alive before I go hundreds of miles away for a few years.
Hi all, Sorry for being out of the loop for a few days...had lots of holiday stuff and I got a new and better paying job that keeps me quite busy.
Anyway...the format for the doujin is this...
1 page at least six panels... if your going to do the text in the computer the font size cannot be small the 8pts. Final art size is 5.5in by 8.5in at 300 dpi... regardless of size...all artwork should be scanned at 300 dpi so it looks nice and tight when it is reduced.(and it will make handwritten dialog more legible).
Thanks to Multipass for reminding me...
By the way the deadline is Tuesday DEC 30th at 11pm... send me an email with a link to your page or attach it... best formats for this is probably PNG, SVG, PDF or JPG are the best format since they are compressed and are an "open" standard.
If your artwork/story is already done... I can still make it work even if it doesn't fit these standards...sorry for the tardiness of my responses.
Email me at: email@example.com
PS... I guess I'll be up all night working on mine.

Thanks to all who submitted... I have one more order of business on this... To everyone: Do you have a title you want for your particular manga? What name do you want for your author name? and do you want your deviant art url at the bottom?
As soon as I here back... I'll post a link to download the PDF so you can print it and give it to people if you want.
