'Sup folks… So, taking advantage of the new site & forums as an opportunity, I thought we should revive the good old MWJams… Anyone up for it?
So here’s how it works: Anyone’s welcome to participate, of course, and what we usually did was, everyone picks a character Millar’s written (anything from any Millar book, be it Marvel, DC, Image, his own books… don’t matter) but you have to post your choice in this thread so people can choose something else… the point being: No repeats of the same character, but different iterations are okay (like some can pick Old Man Logan and someone else 616 Wolverine, but not 2 Old Man Logans). First come first served, so hurry up! =)
Preferably, the drawings should be in high-res, black & white (since not everyone can or has time to colour) and your drawing should be of the entire body of the character, in whichever pose you wish… just the whole body (no busts or portraits) for it to be eligible.
Also, for now just ONE character per person… If there isn’t much interest I’ll let you know so you can do more than one if you wish to, or just scrap it if none’s ball to do it =P
I’ll set a tentative date of humm… I dunno… let’s say June 1st as a deadline for everyone to participate, at which point I’ll take all of the submitted drawing and put them together in a background or something (to the effect of the exemples below). And voilà: Jam created! Later on if a colorist in here wants to take a stab at it, I can provide the high-ress PS file for them to tinker it, but that’s only if anyone asks to.
*Drawings should be either posted in here, or in any external site of your choice… just make sure to provide me with a link via PM or here in the thread to a high-ress image so I can download them and edit them later on).
Here are some of the MWJams we did in previous years (notice the participation of some people you might recognize which means that you never know who your art’s gonna be showcased next to) so you can see what it’s supposed to look like (and the whys of the rules above) or take a peek at some fun artwork or just take a stroll down memory lane…
Well, Hopefully this thread won’t disappear, and we all await your participation… Cheers!
BTW, for the new members, a little disclaimer: This is in no way any sort of official or Millar-sponsored thing… There’s no prize, nothing to win… Just for the fun of it =)
