2) All artwork must be original, and made specifically for the artbook.

3) All submitted artwork should be fully coloured with a background, although simpler backgrounds can still be accepted given that the rest of the piece makes up for detail. The artwork must include at least one character.

4) It's highly encouraged for you to upload a preview of your work! Just make sure its a <40% sneak peek of your whole piece.

5) All submitted artworks must be in RGB format (I will be converting images to CYMK myself during formatting, and adjusting vibrancy as needed to retain as much of the original colour quality as possible).

6) We reserve the right to decline or hold off from accepting any artwork that does not follow the submission guidelines, or is not on par with the expected standards and quality.

Please do not post your full, completed artwork anywhere, on deviantart or otherwise, until the artbook is fully completed and all copies have been sold. Thank you for your understanding.

ahh I hope you don't mind me asking, but where do we submit our concept sketches?? o: do we send it via notes or email it??
Celstie's avatar
You can send via notes ( file) or via email! Whichever one would be most convenient for you, as it's mostly just a progress check up. ^^

It's just the final submission that must be through email.

I noticed that the pixels don't match up with the inches. When I open a canvas in 2550 x 2955 pixels it's 7.286 x 8.443 inches not 8 x 9,85. Is this a mistake or do you have two different sizes on purpose?
Celstie's avatar
Oh my goodness, thank you for catching my error! It should be 8.5 inches x 9.85 inches, if doing a traditional piece of art.

When converting the pixel rate to inches though, the 2550 x 2955 size does match up to 8.5"x9.85" at 300 dpi
May I ask where you're getting the 7.286 x 8.443 from? Thank you!

Oh I get the mistake now. It's because I had the file open at 350 dpi. I am sorry for the confusion! And I am glad my mistake helped you nevertheless. XD
