The Official Conceptart.org "Chicks Who Draw Chicks Calendar"
What Is It?
This is a chance for the girls of conceptart.org to create artwork to be published in a printed calendar!, to be released for the year 2007. It's a fantastic way for the highly outnumbered lady-folk here to get some exposure, make contacts with eachother (though thanks to Magicgoo's Thunderdome, I am already familiar with many of you!) and above all, for us make kick-ass artwork! The calendar will then be sold online or perhaps at workshops, generating funds to help maintain the website, fund scholarships and future workshops.
Who Can Participate?
Anyone without dangly bits! Seriously, this is a girls-only project (sorry guys, put the wigs away). Chicks of all ages, skill levels, orientations, colors, shapes, sizes, condiment preferences and shoe sizes are encouraged to participate! The enrollment period is now over, no more entries are being taken - so let's get to work, ladies!
What do I have to draw?
The calendar is loosely based on the idea of a pin-up calendar. Your piece needs to have a woman as the primary focus. You can stick her in an epic battle scene or drape her half-naked body over a lazer gun pointed at earth. Please keep the theme of your piece rated PG-13, since the calendar will be seen by minors and other small humans. Since this is pin-up inspired, I also ask that you keep a positive, sexy light on the women in your pieces. Your definition of sexy can be as unique as you are, just make sure you have fun!
-Any medium is acceptable except for photography. Shamelessly sexy self portraits are encouraged!
-You must create new artwork for your entry. Old pieces of art will not be accepted!
-Dimensions for the pieces has yet to be determined and won't be until a format for the calendar is decided upon! Odds are it will be a vertical rectangle sort of shape, I will have specifics as soon as I can. But one thing is certain: BE SURE YOUR FINAL WORK IS NO SMALLER THAN 300 DPI!!!!
How Do We Decide Who Gets Printed?
A panel of independent judges will determine the top 12 pieces to be printed in the calendar. 12 additional smaller spaces on the calendar will be given to the runners-up!
Confirmed Judges So Far:
How Long Do I Have to Work on My Entry?
This project is going to have a deliciously long deadline. Entries will be due JULY 31st AT 11:59pm EST I do not expect everyone to spend each day of the 2.5 month period on their pieces, but I am expecting finished works. And I mean finished - none of that "I started mine 2 days before hte deadline!" stuff here, unless you're superwoman and work exceptionally well under pressure.

Please keep your sketches and future WIPs a secret from the whole of CA! There is a girls-only forum which you can gain access to by sending a PM to Davi. There will be a thread in that forum for WIPs - we have to get eachother's backs!
SO! I will divide you ladies up into seasons (assuming you specified one!) over the next few days. I will pretty much do it by first come first serve - those on the bottom of the list will probably get their second choice Those who didn't specify can do whatever they like, so long as they don't decide to do a very seasonal-looking piece in the end.
Thank you ladies, and good luck!
