has made themselves clear that they do
not want other people to use their art on
homepages, I'll be asking for fanarts
instead. Yes, they said fanarts are okay.
All submissions will be used in the
characters sections. Fanarts will be
updated on a monthly basis.
sure you follow the guidelines below.
Makes my life a lot easier =)
What types of fan-art are accepted?
Individual characters, group pictures.
What should you do if you would
like to submit?
- Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
with the Subject: Submit
your TB fan-art!!
Clearly state your name (or
nickname if you prefer so),
email, the theme/title (if any)
of your art, and a brief
description of the picture/scene
so that I know what I'm expecting
to receive. If you already have
your picture on a web page, give
me the URL and jump to step (5).
If no, read on...
- Wait for my confirmation. This is
very important. Do NOT email your
drawing to me until you get my
- While doing so, scan in your
drawing to a reasonable size.
Make sure the lines are clear and
colors are distinguishable. This
is very important: Please keep
the file size to less than 300K
if possible. Use jpg (high or
medium quality if using Adobe
Photoshop) or gif format, NOT tif
- If you don't have access to a
scanner, lemme know in your
email. I will give you my
snailmail address in my reply.
However, it won't appear on the
page until I get my hands on a
scanner. Works will usually NOT
be returned. So please use a
photocopy if possible (a nice one
please ^_^). If you must have
your works returned, please state
so, and use enough mailer for it
so that it's not ruined during
the mailing process.
- After I get your drawing, I have
the right to resize it or enhance
it so as to fit it on the TBpage.
I use Adobe Photoshop 4.0. I
usually resize it to a height of
around 550 pixels or a width of
around 800 pixels, if the
original picture is larger. I
usually keep it at 72-100
pixels/inch. I also try to darken
it a little (or sometimes lighten
it depending on the drawing) or
put a mask over it. Then I
usually save it with medium
quality jpg since the artworks
are usually big and this much
compression won't do too much
harm to the quality anyway. This
should limit the file to
something less than 70 KB for
B&W, 100KB for color.
- Sit back and relax. You'll see
your drawing on this page in the
next monthly update.
