Hello! It’s Rain baby, and I’m calling all Furries who are creatively Inclined!
I am now signed up and working for a nifty Furry Convention/Festival Called Campfire Tails that will take place in the Deschutes National Forest come August 2-6. My position is the Art Director, and I’ve been given the responsibility of putting together the Con Book, Con Badges, Patron Badges, Patron Badges, and a T-shirt Graphic for Campfire Tails
That said, my team and I need some nifty art to make Campfire Tails 2012 the best year yet! If your looking to get your name out to more Furries this is an excellent opportunity! Our theme this year is “KEEP FURRY WEIRD” which is a very loose theme :3 and pretty much anything PG rated would work here, so if you like Sun Glasses, bikini tops, Pirates, Hippos, Robots with ears, and anything that is summer fun please let it shine baby! Unfortunately, you wont be getting paid ( unless I pay from pocket) though there may be shwag to be had. If your helping create this material, You’ll get your material!
I’m looking for a wide range of art. The Convention book will implement a wide variety of illustrations, like small boarder illustrations, large full page images, a Convention book cover, playful stories, a variety of different 5inch by 3inch con badges , and the Vector Graphic for our T-shirt. I will even accept pre-made art you’ve made and have no use for!
Very Important to note that these are our two Mascots! https://d.facdn.net/art/okamiwolf/1312948953.okamiwolf_conbook2.png

Last year I provided Con Badge illustrations and these two Illustrations, one of which got a 2 page spread https://d.facdn.net/art/rain420/1310374593.rain420_inkwash.jpg
Ok, The theme this year is as loose as a gay fox…o__o me gusta. You have a big sky to soar in…A sky the size of 8 1/2 inches x 11 inches ( though it might be wise to 2x those dimensions in your program of choice, Illustrator is awesome!) Your work should be done in Vectors, and in PMS monochrome. if you don’t work this way; it will get prepped for printing this way and thus your illustration may loose some intended values D:
thats really not a Problem Mara, I’d be happy if you could get them scanned or atleast get them to me, after that I can do the prep to make em print.
But if you want your traditional work to print better on the shirt, work in inks/pens, use bold lines and avoid value gradients (this of course only applies for the T-shirt) and sketch your stuff out first if you want a neater piece
[quote=“crashheart, post:13, topic:426”]any more suggestions for themes for art? Last years theme was pretty easy to grasp… this one not so much. As far as Im concerned, the entire fandom is weird!
I need some inspiration as to what you’re looking for… or at least what you’re not looking for, art wise…[/quote]
you are 100% right, the entire fandom is weird, points including you. That said I think you should draw the things that furry really reels you in on. Iono what you like but take this as an opportunity to show off your art and express the things that are important to you. So sitting down and just drawing anything your mind pumps out would work, even if its geometric patterns, cause I would totally use shit like that in a conbook now essentially the only thing I we don’t want is explicit material. even though most people would love breasts and penises… we cant do that.
and if your really confused, try and make furry things hipster as fuck XD
