Featured Artists - Instructions Page 02 by darkspeeds Featured Artists - Instructions Page 02 by darkspeeds
When it comes to receiving a manual containing instructions for a task or assignment I cringe at the long-winded text on a plain old page - too boring.


What I've learnt about print design is that good design can make anything readable much more appealing. The colours, text-boxes, images, and fonts - how all of these elements are laid out on page - matters in a big way.


So to keep my art contributors to the mock publication project (ie SONIC ART COLLECTION Issue #01) here is the write-up done with complete graphics, color and stylized font. The submission deadline date is repeated on both pages, as well as it is highlighted with a strong bold colour from the rest of the color palate, to remind my colleagues the importance of their given deadline.

Is it Required to have characters exclusive to the comics or can it feature a single character, like Sonic himself?

It has to have a minimum of three characters. Choose from the suggested group of heroes listed on the instructions page as a guideline.

Is this still a possibility or is it closed?
And let me get this right, I can do any official team from Archie but I can also do a big group of official characters too (doesn't have to be a team)? Like for instance Blaze Sonic and Knuckles or whatever?

The contest is still on - this isn't the right page to look into for details.

For contest updates and info go to this link: [link]

Your best chance of getting a top spot is to draw Sonic Archie related teams that are mentioned in the CONTEST page. [link]

All the best!
