•sorry, 'boy' cannot be interpreted as 'girl'.

1. This is a one month competition to begin once all pairings are in place.
2. This is also a competition where you must post WIPs by the due date #1 listed above. No last minute b.s. We mean business, because that's what it's like.
3. Any medium is okay, except Photos. Yes, you can do sculpture or 3D, but it would be cooler if the person you're battling is doing the same thing, imho.
4. All final entries will have to be emailed to redehlert as LINKS. Please do not send me your entry. Redehlert's email is 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
3. Your entry will need this label: "yournameVbattlersname_tdome.jpg"
4. Your entries should be RGB and approximately 9x11.25" at 300 dpi (yes, this is hi-res).* Pixel dimension for this size is 2,700 x 3,375.
5. When you have your final entry, scale your piece down to 72 ppit with an end size of approximately 648 x 810 ppi.
*Why Hi-res? Trevor, being a total stud, is going to print out the winners and will need the high-end files to be ftp'd to him. He has access to a stellar printer and so think of this as portfolio material people. You will need to coordinate with Trevor with respect to s/h.
That's all for the rules right now.
Judges: DSillustration, Spinefinger, and Matt Dixon!
