MLP fanmade calendar 2018 -Done-Printing
« on: August 18, 2017, 02:09:31 AM »
Notice: we had a few problems last year. as a few pictures were late and several person couldn't finish due to personal problems, so the calendars got out really really late.
Do we want to try again this year?
if we try again, and you don't think you'll be able to get a picture by nov 30, please don't sign up. I don't want to force others to wait, as there is set up and prep i'll need to do on the printing end. that being said. who wants to sign up?

I have the digital copies from last year, but never got emails from some and if i did, don't know what they are now. sorry. this has been a truly awful year, and I'm coming back to the arena just to see if people still want to do this project. so if you still need this years message me. I'll make a point to come on at least 3 times a week.
sorry things fell apart, but at this point if people don't have a picture in by nov 30th. then either I'll draw them myself. or I'll use older pictures from previous years. waiting just gets frustrating for me etc.

it's first come first claim, so pick your month when you post.

Physical copies are 5$ each plus shipping (combine shipping if you want more than one)
pdf copies are free.



Picture due date- no later than nov 30th

so what it is, is 12 artists (maybe 13) ban together. each taking a month and drawing a picture 11 x 8 1/2  with the pony theme. prefer to use the hasbro characters rather than ocs.
all pictures have to be your original work. please no copying or tracing any stock art.
any drawing level is fine.

I'll print them at my work. my company has changed a few policies so i have to double check on the cost of printing these. shouldn't be much more if any. shipping will still be about 5$
then you get the printed calender in the mail.
(a digital one would be free)

I'll be printing them at my work which is a professional book making company. so the quality will be good. and the cost literally just cover materials and shipping.
i feel bad putting a cost on it, but since i can't afford to make and ship one for everyone its' only fair for everyone to pay for their own. of course if you want to submit a picture for the calendar and just get a digital copy of the calendar there would be no cost.

what do you think? who want to try this?

it's first come first serve on months and characters. since we don't want to have a whole calender just of mintys (though i know some of you may not agree), lets keep it to 2 appearance by each character, for the really popular characters. any generation is fine.

To fill in blanks pictures.

this is not commission based. all artist are volunteers only.
if i can get more than 5 people i'll fill in the gaps myself if i have to. :)
the only time any money is changing hands is if you want me to print a copy of the calendar and send it to you.

oh and if you want one and aren't drawing for the calendar, well if it's ok with the artist you can get one too.
there will be no profits made from any of this, but it depends. so artist as you sign up. please say if you are willing to have non-participates get one of the calendars or not. then it will be decided at the end.

pm me or post in the forum to claim your spot!

Picture requirements are:
-original art
-11x8 1/2 landscape picture.
-theme must match month chosen
-images scanned or sent at 400 dpi (or they will look horrible printed.)
if you can't scan in the image yourself, you are welcome to send it to me, and i'll return your original art with the calendar.

if you missed out on a calendar from last year, or one never arrive please let me know. there was alot of confusion when everything was going out.

I would like July.  Since my scanner scans in watercolor (what I work with most) very badly, if you have a better quality scanner I may send it to you for scanning.

yes I can scan in pictures here.

Which reminds me to those who sent pictures last year. I'm ashamed to say, yes i still have them. and can return them if you would like them back.

Ooh, I've wanted to take part in something like this for a while!
Can I do December?
Also, is  11 x 8 1/2 referring to cm or inches?

Ooh this sounds really fun and cute!

I'd love October, please! I want an excuse to draw a Halloween pony picture! :P

EDIT: Since I would be doing this digitally, what size do I make the canvas in pixels so it's 11 x 8 1/2? Never mind figured it out thanks to the power of Google.

A few things I've noticed about past calendars that I want to point out (hope thats ok RJ):
  • If you draw your picture long ways it tends to look better in the calendar
  • Also the bigger the better, then you get a full awesome image for the page
  • Lets see some cool backgrounds! If you're stuck on what to do for a background, in the past I cut my artwork out and glued it to fancy pretty scrapbook paper or card-stock. It totally makes the calendar more colorful <3
  • Don't forget to post what ponies you are drawing so that we don't get a full calendar of like 4 ponies (as cool as a calendar of all Moonstones or Fizzy would be we want some variety right?

Mind you these are just recommendations and by no means am I telling anyone how to do art!


I think I will take February if thats ok.
Change of ponies again, I will be drawing G1 Lickity Split and Fizzy
I am totally ok with non artists getting a copy, I always purchase my gal-pal one each year

I wish I knew how to use my drawing tablet!  I'm certainly not going to figure it out in time though.  :(

great suggestions!!! thank you.

i'm rubbish at backgrounds. so maybe i'll be trying the scrapbook paper idea. thank you.

everythings updated and there are still a few months left.
what ever isn't filled by the end of the week is up for grabs if you'd like to do a second month.

CUTE! And I seem like I remember people posting last year on the page as well to show off their artwork.

I got my ponies sketched yesterday, I gotta figure out a background idea and start checking my markers to see which ones still work and which ones are dry.
