    I am motivated enough to push myself with this, I am hoping that with the pressure a diamond in the rough will form much faster rather than with time.

    I'm going to work with some thumbs to try to get some good ideas flowing for each of these. Seeing as how you are acting as 'publisher' in this Illaekae, I would like to have your opinions the most and I will have to acknowledge that you are also busy with this, but I will take any wise words as I receive it (that includes anyone else out there reading this ).

    This sounds like a pretty cool challenge. I want to partake more in the community (as I have been rather lapse with it of recent!) ~ A good challenge to push myself into.
    Thank Ilaekae!

    EDIT:

    STUPID(ish) QUESTION: will we have to create the graphic type/logo/barcode/publishing co. name/price tag - all that stuff too?

    If so, its good for us all to think also about the layout of the image within, to conteract the type to be laid ontop...just a passing thought for all....

    EDIT AGAIN: What about the back cover? Would it be an open option for us to include it etc etc?....

    "...five weeks is way to much time just for five covers..."

    Got that right, but we have an incredible number of newbees here who spend a lot of wasted time on school, getting laid, eating, sleeping, bragging/complaining in the lounge, etc. 10 days is more like it for 5 run-of-the-mill covers, with maybe 15 days if we're gettin' fancy (I'm talkin' DEADLINE work here, not special situations.)...

    Molly, you don't have to create the bar code, etc., but you raise a good point that I haven't mentioned before in an obvious way... Usually, the publisher will require a small area of the illustration be a bit "clean" of anything important for the code and legaleeze to be mortised into. The price has traditionally been inserted in the corner top left or right, but lately, it seems to be with the bar code info, if it appears at all.

    I have no trouble with a wrapped cover, but US comics often use the reverse for promo or advertising.

    Many higher quality comics with wrapped covers often have the barcode and pricing/publisher info on the back now to keep the cover high-impact.

    I think I'll just do this 8.5 x 11 size like you said in the first place. I like big paper.

    This sounds like something I could really get into. I'll give this one a go!

    Is it okay if my chow team warms up by entering this pow? I know it sounds like unfair advantage, but we are learning how to work as a team. It could be a disadvantage in some respects.

    Hey, I think I might give it a shot, though I wonźt be able to post any progress until the 5th or 6th of january. Raoul, I guess we'll just work indipendently, but Help eachother out if we have problems? Also, I guess we should make team Chow our prioirity. I have got so much stuff to do, so I'll just fuck off now and start drawing.

    EDIT:
    So. Here are the first ideas for each cover. I love challenges like these, but with team chow coming up I'll have to fight hard to stick with my plans. I am going to decide on what I dea to follow soon, and start sketching it out. In about two weeks I'll then be able to work with it digitally (layout etc.)
    Ma main goal is to establish a certain style in each cover, and keep them individual yet still recognizably mine.
    Please give me feedback on which cover idea works best and so on. I will decide based on your opinions but in the end its up to me of course....
    Sorry for the VERY rough sketches. I still need to learn how to sketch fast from imagination. That is definitely not my forté.

    Raoul, I don't think a team ENTRY would be fair to the other contestants, but I see no reason why the team couldn't do the Challenge as an exercise...it just won't go to poll. I'd be damn curious to see how it comes out...
