The first lot of requests for art have come in, and this short message is to point you all towards them! If you're an artist in the Elysian Fields community and you're thinking of signing up to create one of the banners (or you're curious about the upcoming fic and just want to take a look), then you can find the banner requests HERE.
Artists, make sure you read over the info if you’re thinking of claiming one of the art requests.
Susan, our resident tech guru extraordinaire, has the art request claim page set up to automatically switch to request claiming OPEN at midnight SITE TIME on the 1st of September. Early claims will not be accepted.
To claim a fic request, artists will need to email me with the following information:
Artist penname/user ID:
Permission to share your email with the author(s) you sign up for:
Banner request: List your banner request(s) by fic title and author penname name, in order of preference
(up to top 5 or 6).
Number of banners you are willing to create: (max 3)
Each fic will ONLY be allocated to one artist, and it will be in a first come, first serve basis. Artists may sign up to create multiple banners, however we will cap the number to three banners to begin with, to encourage involvement from a lot of people. If we require a secondary sign up, that will happen later on.
Finally, to the participating authors. Even though the request claiming goes live on the 1st of September, you can still sign up to request art after that date, but we will be imposing a cut off (likely a week before posting starts on the 1st of October--this is to be confirmed), to ensure that artists have enough time to complete the requests.
That's about it. Any questions? Comment here.
And when the time comes... happy claiming!
