[Community Project] Wayfinder #6 Call for Art Submissions


Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion

Sovereign Court Wayfinder, PaizoCon Founder

Pack your gear, grab your boots of the winterlands, and prepare your endure elements spell; it’s time to head North! To the lands where the Ulfen rule, and have ruled for ages! Visit the ancient mead halls, and hear the stories from the great warriors: of great battles with Irrisen’s blue trolls and icy fey; of the savage hunts for the linnorm; of the times of the raiders, plunders of the western coast; of the strange and eerie places where this world meets the First World.

Come! Sit by the Great Fire pull out your sketchbook, your drawing sticks and, draw the wonders of the north for us!

Goal
The goal for the fanzine is to create a collection of fan-created articles and supporting art set in Paizo’s Pathfinder Chronicles world of Golarion. The goal of this call for art submissions is to create a feature article in Wayfinder #6 that displays the artistic talents of Pathfinder fans .

Wayfinder #6 will be focusing on the one of the northernmost realms: the Lands of the Linnorm Kings! While art depicting some aspect of our theme is encouraged, we will also be accepting all art submissions that deal with the Pathfinder setting. So feel free to give us your best!

But first, we have a few rules...

Guidelines

  • Keep in mind thy audience. Keep it PG-13. No cheesecake/beefcake/fan service.
  • Thou shalt not infringe upon other Intellectual Properties. No illustrating Batman meets Valeros, or even a Drizzt-looking drow. Keep it in Golarion.
  • Wayfinder seeks new, original black and white or color art to feature in its pages. Please refrain from submitting material that has already been published elsewhere.

Submission Instructions

  • Conditions for Submissions. All artists must agree to have their works reproduced for this and other Wayfinder products, be it for translations into other languages (we will be responsible for the truthfulness of the translations), special publications, or use on a Wayfinder website or gallery website (such as DeviantArt). All of Wayfinder’s publications are NON-PROFIT, and authors and artists will be given proper credit where due.
  • Send all submissions to: wayfinder.fanzine@gmail.com with the subject line containing “Wayfinder #6 Art Submission”.
  • Art submissions can be in color or black/white.
  • All art submissions should be .psd .jpg or .tiff files. 300 dpi. 8.5 x11 size max.. Note: Files that are sent in any other format will be rejected.

  • DEADLINE: November 15, 2011, 11:59 Pacific. All entries will be handled on a first come, first serve basis.

I discussed the magazine with my old friend JesmondCat, who moved back to my town last weekend.
He seemed interested in the concept, and it would help him get his work out to the masses.
He does a good line in Celtic/Scandinavian knotwork; may be good for chapter headers, borders, illuminated letters and section breaks.


I'm in. Can we use the iconics in our pics?

Yes, I believe you can. Just adhere to the guidelines!

And please, folks, help us spread the word around. We have posted to Facebook, Google+, and here.

Share the link to this thread with others, and let's see if we can get some outstanding new art in Wayfinder #6!!

You know me, Timmy-Tim Tim. Always ready to lend a stylus.

Now gimme many artings to do!


Hello, do you still request art to match the texts? I did art to illustrate "In Hell’s Embrace" Part 2 & 3 by Dane Pitchford in past issues, I would like to illustrate Part 4 if it's part ot this issue, if possible..

Yes, we are going to be using artists to illustrate the written articles as well. Hugo (butterfrog) is our art director/wrangler for those, and will putting out those art orders as soon as I send him the articles I am selecting. But, I'll let Hugo know that you'd like to illustrate that article.

THIS call for art is IN ADDITION to the article art. Our intent for art pieces received from this call is to fill 4-8 pages of the fanzine with a gallery of fan art. Since this is a PDF, we sort of have room to play with here for this kind of thing.

Plus, we are also interested in discovering new talent in the community. I mean, heck, we are doing it for the writers, why not do a little more for the artists out there? And newly discovered artists may very well get a bonus from the exposure (more commissions!).

So, there, that's our plan for this.


Here's an idea. There should be a fair bit of tinkering and rules kitbash ambition amongst the Wayfinder readership, right? How about giving a few of the open art pages over to creatures without rules, then starting a discussion on here and let the community decide what they are in game terms.

That might be something we could try in another issue, but alas, #6 really needs to be underway right now, and it isn't feasible for this issue.

I do like that idea, though. Perhaps something we can do during the time we are waiting for submissions to keep people aware that Wayfinder is open and waiting. Nice.

In the meantime, I am a little perplexed....the response has been very small. Is there no interest in submitting any art??

:(


You could always post down on the forums are way too long thread; at least one of those crazies is bound to be either an artist or at least to know one... :D

For what it's worth, I've been pointing out this thread to some people I don't think are active here. Here's hoping at least one of them takes the bait.

Not the best artist in the world, but I'll see if I can get something to y'all. After the rewrite for piece for the Chronicler though or Ted will kill me.

I had a friend recommend that I give this a try, so I should have something to submit in a week or so. If anyone cares to have a look at my work, check it out at http://munkendronkey.deviantart.com/

Cheers,

And I will be INCREDIBLY PLEASED.

Wow, Steve. Great stuff! Can't wait to see what you submit!

Steve, meet Tim. Tim, Steve.
Other than probably his family, I am Steve's bigggest fan. I'm overjoyed to see that Steve has joined us here on the messageboards, and to hear that he's planning on doing a piece for the upcoming Wayfinder. There's more I guess I could say, but right now I'm just happy that two guys I am so impressed with have gotten together, and a game I love is going to be the better for it.

Aw, shucks...


Timitius, do you have the contact info of the people who wrote the Wolfshaper base class? Or maybe it was wolfrager.

I believe you are referring to the Wolf Shifter by Darrick Dahl and Brandon Waldenberg?

Then, yes, I do have their contact info....


Hmm... I might be able to submit something, time permitting >.>

SketchBook Express (there's even a Copic Edition!). They're free and for PCs and Mac.


Hi all,

Just sent out my first art submission for Wayfinder. Looking forward to hearing from y'all.

Cheers,
Steve

Well, folks, tomorrow is the day! I certain hope there are a lot of you out there ready to send your art pieces in, because I don't see a whole lot in my inbox.....

:(

Mine is almost almost done. I'll probably pop it in right under the wire.

Just made my first attempt at "art" since high school. My AutoCAD skills are better at wiring diagrams...


sadly I missed this - will there be something like this again soon?

I don't know, honestly. The response was pretty underwhelming, in terms of amount received. (What I did get was pretty great though!)

If we do this again, it will likely be for issue #8, for next fall/winter 2012. That's another PDF-only issue, and therefore we aren't held to a limit on page count.

That said....if you are an artist that would like to illustrate something for Wayfinder, we use lots of artists! Put your stuff up online somewhere (deviantart is one such place) and send us the link to it. If we like what we see, we may contact you to see if you want to illustrate an article for an issue.

See, if we don't know about you and your art, we can't use it. That, actually, was sort of the intent for this call for art...to find and promote talented artists/fans.

After a bit of thought and discussion, Wayfinder #7 (coming out in July) will also try to have another Call for Art. The catch is that the Gallery article of art will be exclusive to the PDF version. Space is limited for the printed PaizoCon version, so we'll just make sure that the downloaded PDF is "special".

At least, that's the plan....
