To claim a story you want to do art for, please drop a comment below with:
FIRST CHOICE – Story Number: #
SECOND CHOICE – Story Number: #
Remember: first come, first serve!!
Sign ups for artists as well as this claim post will remain open until all fanfics get claimed! Since this has become a fairly small Bang, reminder that Debut Day will be delayed until every fic has been claimed. So, get all your friends out to come take on some art!
After you have claimed your story, you will receive an email from the mods with your writer's name & info, and the snippets they provided (it may not be immediate, but it should be within 24-48 hours). Authors: you will receive an email with your artist’s information once your fic has been claimed. Artists and authors are not required to chat, but it’s highly encouraged that you work with each other in whatever manner works for both of you. :)
What are the requirements for art?
You can make whatever kind of art you feel like, in whichever medium. Drawing, painting, digital, manips, vids, fanmix, fabric, mixed media, anything you can think of. We just ask that you put some time and genuine effort into it, as our authors have put major effort into their story. You are required to make a minimum of ONE piece of art for the story you claim. MORE IS BETTER. We love more! We want more! But, based on feedback from prior year’s artists, we only have a requirement of one piece of artwork.
Make it nice, put some serious effort into it! :)
(more questions about Art and Claims and stuff? FAQs here or if you need to ask a specific question or see something wrong with this preview, contact the mods on the Page-A-Mod page or shoot traycer_ or red_b_rackham a PM.)
How many can I claim?
For the first round of claims, please only choose ONE story to do. We will shortly open it up to a second round, where you may claim a second and third fic if you so wish. If you’re ambitious and want to do more than three, that’s doable BUT you must complete what you claim. Trying to find back-up artists is a nightmare - please don’t make us do it. ;) And a reminder that no extensions will be granted.
Artists, if you have the time, please consider also signing up to be a pinch hit artist in the event someone has to drop out last minute, and please spread the word so we can have all our hard working authors claimed by hard working artists!!
Want to get in on this art action but forgot to sign up? No problem!! The Artist Interest sign-ups are here and will be open until every fic has been claimed.
