This is your opportunity to design the cover for our programming booklet, our T-shirts, and/or our badges and have your work seen by hundreds of Setsucon attendees! So sharpen your pencils, dust off your tablet, or pull out your quills, whatever it takes for you to to work your magic. Here are the details:




Setsucon 2010 Cover Contest

How would you like your art to be featured on the cover of an official anime convention's booklet? Well, here is your chance to achieve that goal! Setsucon 2010 is looking for some great art for our booklet cover this year! Design a cover that will be on the cover of every booklet handed out at Setsucon 2010 and be a part of Setsucon history!

- Your entry must include King Con and SetsuRai
- Must contain original art! No fanart!
- No tracing, stealing, cropping, etc from other images
- Leave a space for the Setsucon logo to go on the poster

(Extra info)
King Con
- a jokey kind of character generally someone who is always looking like he is up to no good, but has a weak spot for cars.
- Should have short to medium length curly hair
- Must have his Hammer, shield, cape, crown and glasses
- Brown eyes

Setsurai
- a silent type a lone wolf of sorts more reserved then King Con a typical kinda cool character, but is innately clumsy.

- Must have two arm bracers or band or arm guards or whatever and a katana or long sword
- Blue eyes

What we require
- That they fit the character criteria that we have listed above

- That the colors used for the characters must be cool wintery colors, white, blue, gray, as well as other as long as they are cool like baby pink, or mint green
- Much to our sadness this must remain PG so no blood, no nudity and no suggestive content like the characters shirtless and hugging lol
-Last year our bonus item was to add a car this year it’s to add a mecha or robot to you design it will earn extra points
- Additionally our theme this year is cyber punk so think futuristic
-it must have some sort of a background

Some additional info
- The characters clothing aside from the required articles is totally up to the artists to do whatever, but once again something winter-y would be appreciated.
- note that a logo will be going over the top portion of the picture so leaving some blank space would be preferable
- Hair color is also up to the artist and doesn't have to necessarily match the con colors

Other rules and regulations
- The winning entry will be printed and become the setsucon 2010 booklet cover
- Contest is open to everyone of all ages

Is Setsurai male or female? ^^;

Also, if we had already purchased an artist alley table by the contest end date to ensure we do get a spot, can it be assumed that the winner will have that money reimbursed to them?

Thanks!

::EDIT::

nvm on the gender question, I found Setsucon's DA page lol

I think it's safe to assume that if you already had a table, the cost of the table would be refunded to you.
