    Sounds absolutely great and a good excuse to finally start doing something like storyboards and sequential panels and stuff.

    If you need any help or whatnot from the IDW side of things let me know

    This is a clarification note...

    I changed the final dpi from 72 to 96 in the posting specs in the "Read this first" thread. I did this on the assumption that most of you have non-Mac machines/monitors which usually display at 96 dpi for actual size.

    On the assumption that someday we may want to actually print these pages as a collection (not very likely at this early point, but why rule it out?), I would recommend working at a dpi that would allow proper reproduction later--for example, if you work same size, do your art at 300dpi at least. If you're working up in size (say at 150%, which is pretty close to the norm for most people in comics) and then reduce to size, you could get away with something in the 200-225 dpi range. I normally work at 150% to 200% at 300dpi automatically just so I don't make a bonehead mistake and realize it only after I'm half finished.

    Save these files at the higher dpi as "original art" and make a jpg copy (different name so no overwrites) at 96dpi to the final size for submission to the challenge.

    For those few of you who work in pure black/white (bitmap--not grayscale), the higher the dpi for FINISHED ART, the better--at least 600dpi minimum, and a lot higher if your machine can handle it (1200-1600dpi). This prevents ragged art because you don't have that nice anti-alias thing making you look good... When making the jpg for posting, just go to gray scale and you'll be fine.

    Interesting that Attachment Manager is allowed. May increase participation. Must WIPS and finals appear in the same post?

    No. Just in the same thread for that challenge.

    After reading the "read first" post may I suggest if a template of a page with "official" dimensions already delineated be provided (here or in the readfirst) as a .tif or .psd file. So, kinda like the bristol board Marvel provides its artists.

    Just an idea.
