Better post and discuss anything about MRW Anthology's cover page here. Also if there is going to be a drawing of scene of your story in your 'story cover page'

I should repost the pictures too then? I'll throw in a description I thought up while fighting stone cards with swords, it has nothing to do with those cards, just kind of popped in during the event.



I'd like the cover to just kind of have Shi and Athans if it isn't too much trouble, and I'd like it if:
- Athans was side on standing while reading a book with glasses resting on his nose
- Shi was simply being a child taking up most of the cover, similar to what she's doing in the picture you drew that I posted up again above.
Nothing else is necessary, unless of course you wanna put them in the cliche scenery of a green hill under a tree as their doing the said above actions, god I enjoy that cliche.

okydoky then. here's the description again. as for a background i would probably go with something that would make the dark colors Coryn wears stand out. maybe just like a white background like they do with bleach.



then just have "Coryn's Saga" above Coryn in a good looking font. then have by Coryn Sken at the bottom somewhere.

Name- Coryn Sken (go figure)

height- 6ft

build- lean but not overly muscular

hair- long (to the base of the neck), Blonde, and parted in the center. drawn back to reveal his forehead but not necessarily his ears

eyes- blue

facial expression- has that one side of his mouth is upturned in a smile look/ confident

clothing- flat bottomed white tennis shoes, dark blue t-shirt, black jeans, black leather trench coat. trench coat goes down to his ankles and has not straps, loops or excess pockets. so only two pockets for his hands. on the upper back in red is the symbol that is my avatar. (thicker lines though) not overly large and nicely centered.

Jewelery- Coryn has a silver pendant of sort that he wears around his neck on a silver chain. its under his shirt so only the chain might appear visible if it was under the coat. (just throwing this in since i dont know what the drawing will look like.)

weapons- he has two swords that looked like normal katana except that they're straight instead of curved. the blades are three feet long and the hilt is average length. hilt wrapping is black and the hand-guard is a bronze color and looks like an elongated octagon. the swords are sheathed and run through his belts loops (one on each side of his waist). the coat goes over the swords so they make it protrude towards the bottom.

and heres a picture i drew of the sword back in the day. in the pic it's in its combined state but normally its just two swords.

i think that should be it. please let me know if you want to know anything else. or i'll tell you if theres still enough time for a little editing before the deadline

Ok i'll leave yours for last aero, and Coryn I'm gonna work on just lineart with a sketchy feeling so Would it matter if the background is sketchy too? As I mentioned before I wouldn't be using colors though.

Do not forget  the details for the pages and cover sizes.

RESOLUTION: 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:
http://www.comixpress.com/templates/CP_DigestPage_JPG.jpg
 
Please send me by mail the first cover you'll make, this way we can verify those size details immediately.

fine with me i guess. just make sure he stands out well. as for the background maybe go for like a big city thing. since that is where much of the story takes place
