Bro Calendar 2014

Hello friends, it's that time again! It's time for signups for the fourth Bro Calendar! If you've participated before, the big things are all the same. You can see the 2013 calendar here.

The Bro Calendar is a 12-month calendar that features that special, awesome relationship between two (or more!) people that may or may not be related. Think Jet and Spike from Cowboy Bebop. Or Vash and Wolfwood from Trigun. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Those sorts of relationships. This calendar is to celebrate characters being bros.

Technical Details:
-Image should be at least 8.5"x11" (landscape, NOT portrait!) and the resolution should be AT LEAST 300ppi.
-Due date is Friday, October 4th.
-Color is preferred, but shaded greyscale is acceptable too.
-PG-13 max, please!

Any groups of FICTIONAL characters are allowed! It doesn't matter if they are from an anime series, manga, video game, American comic, TV show, etc, etc. They're all okay. And gender DOES NOT MATTER. Sure, it's a "bro" calendar, but female characters are DEFINITELY allowed. You are free to draw characters used in previous Bro Calendars, but please do not draw characters that are already being used for the 2014 calendar.

I cannot pay you, but for your effort and troubles, you will be sent a copy of the calendar. You DO NOT have to live in the United States to participate, I will happily send you a calendar whatever country you live in. And your images are your own, please feel free to use it for prints at Artist Alleys or the like!

There are thirteen spots open (12 months + cover), but I will accept up to 15 participants. If you are the 14th or 15th participant to sign up, you'll be a fill-in in case someone who signed up earlier is not able to turn in their image in time. And if everyone in the first 13 slots turns in their images, your image will be used in the 2015 calendar (unless you don't want it to) and you will still get a copy of the 2014 calendar (along with a copy of the 2015 calendar, of course).

Usually I get these calendars printed at Lulu, but their prices were a bit higher last year, so I'm looking into other printers in order to keep production costs down. If you'd like a copy of the calendar and do not wish to participate, you will be able to purchase a calendar either through the site we get them printed from or directly from me. I believe with shipping costs, each calendar will cost approximately $15-$17 for non-participants. I do not make money off of this project, any money gained from these sales will go directly to recuperating printing costs. In the off chance that I make enough to cover costs, the profits will go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

If you would like to participate, please comment on this entry with the following:
-Characters you want to draw and series they are from
-Month you'd like to claim (NOT NECESSARY)
-How you'd like me to contact you (usually I will try to reach everyone through LJ PMs, but if you'd prefer email or a Twitter DM, let me know!)

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment here, send me a LJ PM, or email me at dragynstorm (at) gmail (dot) com. I will be trying to remain in contact with all participants, giving updates and reminders on due dates.

Thank-you for your interest and time!
