IT’S ART TIME!!


To claim a story you want to do art for, please drop a comment below with:

FIRST CHOICE – Story Number: #
SECOND CHOICE – Story Number: #
Email Address:

Remember: first come, first serve!! (*Next year, we will try out the Preview Day thing.)

Sign ups for artists as well as this claim post will remain open until all fanfics get claimed! Get all your friends out to come take on some art! If you're willing to sign up as a Pinch Hit Artist, go here.

After you have claimed your story, you will receive an email from the mods with your writer's name & info, and the snippets they provided (it may not be immediate, but it should be within 24-48 hours). Authors: you will receive an email with your artist’s information once your fic has been claimed. Artists and authors are not required to chat, but it’s highly encouraged that you work with each other in whatever manner works for both of you. :)

What are the requirements for art?
You can make whatever kind of art you feel like, in whichever medium. Drawing, painting, digital, manips, vids, fanmix, fabric, mixed media, anything you can think of. We just ask that you put some time and genuine effort into it, as our authors have put major effort into their story. You are required to make a minimum of ONE piece of art for the story you claim. MORE IS BETTER. We love more! We want more! But, based on feedback from prior year’s artists, we only have a requirement of one piece of artwork.

Make it nice, put some serious effort into it! :)

(more questions about Art and Claims and stuff? Check out our FAQ.)

~

CLAIMS:

For the first round of claims, please only choose ONE story to do. We will shortly open it up to a second round, where you may claim a second and third fic if you so wish. If you’re super ambitious and desperately want to do more than three, talk to the mods and/or leave a comment and we’ll see what we can do - you must complete what you claim, however, if at all possible. Trying to find back-up artists is a nightmare - please don’t make us do it. ;) And a reminder that no extensions will be granted. Artists, if you have the time, please consider also signing up to be a pinch hit artist in the event someone has to drop out last minute.

Art and Fics Due - August 26th, 11:59 PM (Midnight) PST (here is a timezone converter.)

The following are all listed alphabetically by first fandom (i.e. in an Supernatural/Avengers crossover, it will only be listed under Supernatural).

go forth and claim! )

2017: Pinch Hit Artist Sign Ups

How does this work?
What's going to happen is that when we have artist drop out in August, we'll send out an email to the artists who are willing to pinch hit - the means creating art, probably fast or very fast, depending on how late the original dropped out. All the artists who are interested and wiling will quickly email back if they can take on the project - first come, first serve. They will receive the relevant information (snippets, author contact, etc).

What do I have to do for art?
Check the original Artist Sign Up post for all the information. If you are interested in pinch hitting, sign up on THIS POST.

What's the timeline like on these?
It will depend on when the original artist drops. For example, if they drop in early August, then you'll basically have the whole month. But if they drop at the end of August, you may only have a few days. While we are taking a hard stance on no extensions, the mods will work closely with our Amazing Pinch Hitting Artists to ensure the deadline is doable (ex. if we lose an artist on Submission Day, the mods will of course give the pinch hitter who scoops their fic a few days to complete the art.) We will talk timeline when (and if) we end up needing to send Pinch Hit art emails.

We'll need the following info from you:

I have read the sign-up rules and the FAQ post: Y/N
LJ and/or DW Name:
AO3 Name:
Email:

To sign up as a pinch hitting artist, copy and paste the text below into a new comment and fill in the lines.



Artists and Non-Artists: please spread the word! We need LOTS of artists for our beautiful authors, so tell your arty friends, link them here, drag them kicking and screaming. ;D

Art Claims: COMING VERY SOON

Just a quick note to say that I have fallen behind schedule (apologies, guys!!), but the art claims will be going up today or tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled!! Claims will be on a first come, first serve basis. Pinch Hit Artist sign-ups will also be going up soon, for those interested and able to be Pinch Hitters.

Artists: I wanted to ask you guys' opinions about art claims: something I've seen done at other Bangs is all the summaries go up on a "preview" basis for about a day, so everyone can see what's up for grabs, and think over their choices. Then claims are opened and everyone can comment with their first and second choices. Is this something you guys would be interested in doing, or keep it the same as always (especially since the claims post will be going up a couple days later than usual)? Comment below with your thoughts!

Just a reminder that the poll for the Mandatory Check-In closes tonight at 11:59 p.m. If you signed up to write a story for this challenge, please take a few moments to answer the questions in the poll to let us know whether you are still writing a fic, or if you've decided to drop out. Anyone who signed up, but doesn't complete the poll will automatically be considered dropped out.

Also, if you're writing a Big Bang fic, don't forget to send us your snippets. If you want an artist to create artwork for your story, we will need that by the the 18th as well.

We're heading into the home stretch now and I am super excited! I can't wait for the debut date!!! :)

Writers' Mandatory Check-In

[personal profile] traycer posting in [community profile] het_bigbang
Okay, it's time for us to make the final commitment! All writers must participate in this check-in, or they will be assumed to have dropped out of the challenge. This poll will remain open until 11:50 p.m. July 18th. There are two mandatory parts for a Big Bang Participant (poll and email), and only one mandatory part for a Little Bang Participant (poll).

PART ONE:

Answer the questions on the poll. Here's the link!

There is no minimum word count that you need at this point, for either the Big Bang or the Little Bang. After today, you cannot change: your selection of participating in the Big Bang or Little Bang (or both, if you're writing two stories), the fandom, or the pairing. That's locked in!

PART TWO:

An email for Big Bang Writers. If you are attempting a fic greater than 20k, you can choose the Big Bang option and receive an artist who will create artwork for your story. You will therefore need to email the mods at thehetbigbang[at]gmail dot com with THREE different snippets of your work, 500-1000 words each, so that your artist may have something to work off of and inspire. Send a separate email for each big bang that you want to submit.

The email format will be:

SUBJECT LINE: [Your LJ Name: Big Bang Check In.]

Author Name: LJ name and AO3 Name
Story Name: If undecided or only tentative, please state that.
Fandom/Pairing: List the main one, and any minor pairings if you so please
Summary to be provided to the Artist: Yes, this bit is mandatory. It's fine if it's rough, but please give your artists an idea of what the story is about because claims will be done off this. Maximum 50 words.
Current Word Count and Expected Final Word Count:

Then supply your three snippets. 500-1000 words each, in the body of your email and NOT as a separate word document. You may leave any author's notes or any explanations you want, and you must also leave an email address or a way for your artist to contact you directly. Artist are not obliged to work directly with the author on their artwork, but most usually like author input or feedback of some kind. This entire email that you send to the mods will be directly forwarded to your artist, so it's important to include your email address in with your snippets.

You will receive a confirmation email within a couple days to let you know that we've received you snippets.

Random info you probably already know )
