The DesignnHQ challenges you to create the cover art for the next edition of Designn Magazine! The winning artwork would be used as the cover of the 6th edition with an inside cover feature.

Your entry can originate in any medium. Keep in mind that that this is a magazine cover which would go to print; hence keep the highlights of the artwork focused towards the center and right side of the cover, and avoid details towards the edges (1cm from each edge).

(Note that you only need to create the background image of the cover according to the size provided below.)

myTakoyaki COMIC-CON 2012 CONTEST!

We decided to get at table at the New York Comic con 2012 in October.  To make our debut, we would like to open a contest and publish a magazine featuring mytakoyaki’s mangas!! discussion thread here:…

DEADLINE – JULY 16, 2012
GRAND PRIZE WINNER – Main Character of the oneshot will be featured on our cover with other characters in full color as the headliner. A copy of the magazine, $100 bucks, interview and promotional page.

2nd Place – main character will be featured on the cover,  recieve a copy of the magazine, links to their website.

TOP 5 PLACES – Their oneshot story will be published to our magazine that we will be selling on NYAF 2012.  Credits and links to their website(if you have one deviant or other) will be noted in the magazine so they can get some publicity.

After the contest we will be selling the extra magazines here at mytakoyaki, so pre-orders will follow.  If enough orders are made, profits will be split among the top 5, its not gonna be much since we'll sell it at a lower profit value, but its a start!


Manga Layout – We will be publishing with KA-BLAM, so use their comic layout.  I’ve tested them out so if you have any questions, let me know.
Page Minimum – The manga oneshot must be at least 25 pages but no more than 60 pages.
Theme – This must be a 100% original manga.  It cannot be based off of any existing manga.  For example, you cannot submit a oneshot of your shinobi in the world based of Naruto and his characters.  Other than that, Any genre is welcome.
Ratings – Please keep it at a TEEN rating.  Violence like Beelzebub, Naruto, Bleach, and Hitman Reborn is fine.  Claymore, Deadman Wonderland and other over the top bloody violence is not acceptable.  No over the top nudity or blood either.
Read Layout – Unlike traditional manga, we like to keep to the culture of the English language, so please make your stories read LEFT TO RIGHT.  As we’re publishing the magazine in that direction.
Artstyle – B&W as the published work will be in black and white…must use this template for the sizing just so stuff doesn’t get so warped when we publish.  300dpi work.  save it from here:…
***KA-BLAM's website stated to save the file in .tiff format.  DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THIS and submit as a JPG image.  don't worry about the .tiff format***
*previous winners of mytakoyaki contest will not be allowed to enter their manga to this contest as you may be featured in this magazine already(if there is room) BUT if you have new manga you can submit that*

*Since it's been asked, one submission per user, no multiple submissions*

National Geographic Alarabiya cover

One of my proudest achievement so far :)

بالتأكيد اعتبره من أجمل الإنجازات والتي أفتخر بها :)
