No problem if you wanna do the cover, Monsterful, we're more than happy to accept it!

a cover for the whole book D: ?  xD
I dunno if I have the time for that, I was saying a cover for one history, I mean Aero has Doodler (though she's absent right?), but well since they're just sketches It would be nice practice...

Alrite then... I offer to do the Book cover and the stories covers.

BUT! If someone else wants to help me out be my guest! XD

Do not panic! If you just want to make a story cover, it's not a problem at all.

I got all hyped up! xP I wanna do it. I'll have a lot of free time to sketch this weekend.

Just want to know the sizes for the covers, 300 Dpi  and how much pixels?

300 dpi!

Be careful: the final book size is 6 by 9 but the files we send are a little bit bigger because they contain the trim.
Make pages 6.25 by 9.25
The printer accepts jpeg and psd, so no stress!

Here are the exact printers details!
digest comic page size
Trim: 6x9"
Bleed: 6.25x9.25"
Live Area: 5.375x8"
Margins: Top: .375", Bottom: .625", Sides: .3125"

You should use the template in this link:

Hou~? This is getting more interesting with each post. I'll try to work on redoing Arcane on the weekend then, it'd be best not to put it off. ;) Are you submitting a story as well [aero]? Is it gonna be a Chimera chapter or a totally new story?

oooooooooo.... i'm in. god i hope the first chapter of Coryn's Saga will fit. hmm... well the prologue chapter is kind of useless on its own. so with that and chapter one its 7 pages double spaced. should i split them up or would seven pages be fine?

could just try something with your logo making skills. i was just going to ask monster to throw my avatar (which is actually part of the story) on a page with the title on it.

I can do that! After I'll draw a title page for everyone that wants to participate, just lineart though no color xP.

Coryn:7 pages are enough for now. We'll see what the other writers submit before adding more pages.

@[aero]: Writing a new story on it's own wouldn't be too hard. I would try it, but I figure rewriting chapter 1 of Arcane kills two birds with one stone as I wasn't satisfied with it before...both times.

@Coryn: Danged, it was like 10 minutes before I noticed you intercepted my post. :laughing11:

EDIT: And then three more came during that time....

awesome. if we keep making these i'll have to cut up some chapters i'm sure but the prologue is just too short to be on its own
