Reminder: Artist sign-ups deadline is the 31st of May!

Admit it, you've been thinking about it.

Putting pencil to paper (or song to vidding software), capturing the roughness of Doyle's cheek, the curve of Bodie's... cheek.

Ahem. :D

Well, anyway, this is a reminder that the deadline for Artist sign-ups is the 31st of May. If you've been holding off on adding your name to the list but would like to be involved, please read below.

Graphics, videos, manips, macros, original art, animation: whatever you can think of doing, we say bring it on! - so please consider coming along for the ride and playing with us and the Lads.

And now for the legalese-ish stuff:

Rules For Artists:
  1. You agree to create at least one piece of art or one vid for a Pros Big Bang story.Collaborations between artists are also allowed. Just let us know when you sign up if you are planning on working with a partner.
  2. The art may be an original illustration, title banner, photo manip., or whatever else strikes your fancy. The vid may be a reflection of the story or a teaser to entice people to read. Have fun with your project!
  3. You’re free to create what you will for the art or vid, but we suggest that you consult with your writer before doing anything too explicit.
  4. On your assigned date, you will make a master post for your art at this comm (the mods will provide a template for this post closer to the time). The art itself may be posted to, and linked from, your personal LJ, Dreamwidth, AO3, The Automated Hatstand, etc. Please do not post your artwork anywhere prior to your assigned posting date and please do not cross-post it to any other community before the end of October.
  5. If you feel you have the energy and willpower to create artwork for someone else's story, as well as writing your own, then please feel free to sign up as both an artist and as a writer.

Sign ups opened on 1st May and will close on 31st May.

On 9th July, a list of story summaries will be posted anonymously. You will claim the story that interests you on a first come, first served basis. Once you have successfully claimed a story, we’ll give you the author’s contact information and the rough draft/outline of their story from which to work.

The due date for your artwork/vid is 23rd September. Your work should not be posted on a public forum at this time, but you must provide us with either a working link to the art or vid, or the art or vid file itself.

An assigned, staggered posting schedule will happen in October.

To sign up, you can hop over to the artists' signup post or comment below with:
  • Artist/Vidder name:
  • LJ username (if applicable):
  • Email address:
  • Art or Vid, or both (if you know):
  • Would you prefer to work on slash, gen or het/have no preference?:
  • If necessary, would you be willing to pinch hit?

If you would prefer not to put your email address in the comment then please send the mods an email at We're more than happy to answer any questions by email or in the comments below.
