This would be fun if for nothing else than to draw my characters in period costumes. Granted one week doesn't give me a lot of time to make something that doesn't suck.

Re: Historical Romance Comic Crossover Event

Ghastly, you just have to sign up to may 30th :) on may 31th I'm gonna make the pairs, post them on the page and then you just have to contact your partner to decide which characters and historical setting - the final deadline for the *art* is june 15th ... :)

so don't hurry, you have much time left. May I count your posting here as signup? :P

I'm still not entirely sure what this project is exactly. We're just drawing a picture of our characters as some famous historical romance couple but we're partnered with someone else? It's going to be kind of hard to draw half a picture.

Or do we each draw a picture using our partner's characters? Or do we each draw a picture using one of our partner's characters and one of our own?

So we're not actually doing a strip then, like the Valentine's Day cross-over event, just a picture?

Re: Historical Romance Comic Crossover Event

Ohkaaay ... :) You got a partner. Both of you choose one of your characters from your comic - this makes a couple. I don't care if they are both female or male or the traditional couple man-woman, that's totally up to you and your partner.

Then you decide together which kind of historical setting you want to have. And both of you draw the couple in the setting - a picture from each partner, so you have at least two pictures of the same couple, in different artistic styles. I thought this would be the easiest way to cooperate with another artist without being forced to draw half a picture.
No strip, just one picture (this should make the two weeks deadline possible)

I think it depends on my lousy english that not everything was clear ..*sigh* :)
