FE Fan Comic Event 2013

Post  Ellen-Natalie on Fri Jul 05, 2013 9:33 am



Back for a second year, it's the FE Fan Comic Event!

Between August 12th-24th, I will be moving across the country. During this time, FE fans get the opportunity to show off their comic-making skills! Some requirements have been updated based on last year's experience, so if your interested in participating be sure to read over them.

Each comic submitted will be featured as the latest page on the website between August 12th-24th for an equal amount of time. How long that time is depends on how many submissions are received. All comics will be removed from the archives when the comic resumes on the 26th, but re-uploaded as a FREE digital collection in the Side Story section of the website.

HOW TO ENTER:

Create a comic featuring any number of the Furry Experience cast. This comic can be funny, sad, thoughtful, non-sequitor, whatever your mind can come up with! (As long as it follows the rules and format requirements listed below.) Any material can be used (again, as long as it follows rules and formatting) including pencils, digital art, markers, puppets, etc!*

Comics must be only 1-2 pages. Both two-page short stories or two single page comics will be permitted. Pages must be sized at 800 pixels wide, but can vary in length between 800-3000 pixels. All submissions must be in .JPEG or .PNG format. MAKE SURE YOUR COMIC IS ALREADY FORMATTED CORRECTLY WHEN SUBMITTING. I will not be able to make adjustments after you have submitted, and comics which are not formatted correctly will not be posted.

Because these comics will be complied into a free digital collection on the website after the event ends, you will be required to include a small watermark or mention of copyright somewhere on your page. Your ownership of the comic will also be credited at the end of the collection, as well. If you do not wish your comic to be included in the Side Story collection, or have a specific alias or website you wish to be mentioned when credited, you must indicate such in your submission. Otherwise, you will be credited via whichever name I can find associated with you.

DEADLINE TO ENTER IS MIDNIGHT, AUGUST 3RD (Mountain Standard Time.) This comic works on a tight schedule (most of the time) and that deadline cannot be extended. Plan your time accordingly! Submit all entries to my email at: natalie.ellen87 [at] gmail.com

After submitting your comic, please do not post it elsewhere online until after it has been revealed on the Furry Experience website. (We don't want to spoil the surprise!) After your comic has appeared on the FE website, you may upload it online as much as you like-but make sure you mention the contest it's for, or include a link to the webcomic/my DA or FA account. If the site you're posting on prohibits links-backs, a brief mention of Furry Experience will be fine.

RULES! Failure to comply will disqualify your entry.

Last year, the FE universe could not be altered-but this year, it can. If you want to change the setting, time, or anything else about the FE world, it's up for grabs-as long as it keeps the PG/SFW rating.

If you have original characters, they may make an appearance. But you MUST have complete ownership of your original characters. (No relatives of Renemon or personified pokemon, etc.) If you have any doubts or questions about your character, send me a note.

You will be given full ownership credit for your characters if it appears in your comic. Be aware that by submitting to this contest, you are giving permission for me to post the comic on the FE website as I see fit.

As mentioned before, all designs MUST keep a Safe For Work, PG rating-something you're comfortable showing your family, boss, and children. If you have an idea but you're not sure it will be appropriate, note me a description. Pornographic material will automatically be disqualified.

Also mentioned before, if you choose to upload your comic elsewhere after it has appeared on the Furry Experience website, you must give credit for the FE characters and universe to the creator (myself) by linking back or mentioning where they come from.

Last year's submissions were great, and I can't wait to see what comes up this year! Let's make some comics!

*I am still willing to trade swag for FE puppets.

Is there a FE comic with Cat's backpack in it? I want to get the color correct for the comic that I'm drawing.

Heh, I'm afraid I haven't been to consistent with Cat's backpack colors/features over the years, but its' latest portrayal is here: http://furryexperience.smackjeeves.com/comics/1685493/page-262/

Can't wait to see how the comic turns out!

Do we have an ETA for the end of the theater story arc? I have an idea for something with the theater stuff, and I'd hate to make a comic that ends up being canonically incorrect or redundant.

There's a couple pages left, and I don't want to start a new arc before the event starts-so I'm estimating it finish this week.

Also, 12 days left for entries! Some great comics have already been submitted, but there's still time for those who want to participate! All entries are due by midnight on August 3rd, MST
A reminder of this has been posted on the website, but the comic will resume on Tuesday~

We've got some great entries so far, but there's still three days to submit to the Fan Comic Event if you want to participate!

The between-arc filler comic will posted tomorrow, and the following week will have three updates, featuring questions about the FE universe while final preparations are made for the event. These questions will be pulled from the FE forums, so if you've ever had questions about the world Cat, Ronnie and Dawn live in, it's a great time to ask!

Thanks for all the great submissions to this year's Fan Comic Event! This year will feature even more fun new perspectives of Ronnie, Cat, Dawn and their friends.

This next week will be three updates, featuring reader's questions about the FE world answered! Between the 12th-24th, the Fan Comics will be updated nearly daily while I'm moving to Tennessee. After the event, the comics will be added to the Side Story page to read for free anytime.

Again, thanks for everyone's support of Furry Experience. This comic has awesome fans, and I hope you enjoy the event!

As much as I anticipate Ellen-Natalie's return, I have to say I am REALLY enjoying all the guest comics here!!!  Everyone's styles are so different, but the characters are all still very recognizable for who they are.  You're all doing great at keeping each character "in character" too; no one is doing things blatantly outside what I would expect for their character.  We aren't even through the series yet and there's already no way I can pick a favorite.  THANK YOU ALL!!! for stepping in and doing such a great job of supporting Ellen-Natalie, and 'Furry Experience', during her move!!!
