NANOMANGO NOV 2010

30 Pages, 30 Days


NaNoMangO is the art alternative to NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writer's Month. Rather than 50,000 words, we go for 30 sketched pages.

It's a great way to kick a project in motion or build a buffer for your comic! Sign up, and get ready to make comics!

But first, read the rules before you decide to participate.


THE RULES


- Draw 30 pages in 30 days. Whether you choose to post all 30 pages in one day or post one page a day is up to you.

- The pages need to be at least penciled in and readable. Refining the pages through cleanup and inking are not necessary in NaNoMangO.

- Entries may not be comic pages you already created before November 1, 2010. Entries may be pages added on to existing projects, but they can't be pre-existing.

- Keep your comic pages PG-13. You may have blood, nudity, violence, etc. but keep in mind that Gaia Online is a PG-13 website, so keep it tasteful.

- Comic pages that cross the PG-13 boundary should be posted in another website. You may post a link to these pages, but please write a warning on what the page may contain if you do so.

- Pages should be no wider than 600 pixels if you post here. This is to avoid page stretching. If you have an alternative website, you may make your pages as large as you like.

- You may choose any genre for your comic: comedy, drama, romance, action, adventure, etc.. However, please keep in mind the PG-13 rule.

- You may choose to draw your comics in any style. Comics, comic strips, graphic novels, manga, manhwa, etc. are all acceptable.

- Fanwork is acceptable. Parodies, fancomics, comics that take place in an existing fandom universe, etc. are all allowed. However, please make sure to write what the fanwork is based on.

- Entries may be a completely new project or part of an existing project.

- Entries can be a long cohesive storyline, short-stories on a limited number of pages, or even a one-pagers. The important thing is that you draw 30 pages in any way, shape, or form.

- Participating in another NaNoMangO community? Not a problem. You may post the same pages from the other community. This is the Gaia Online version of NaNoMangO, but if you're joining any of the other fine NaNoMangO communities on the internet, we're perfectly fine with that. Just make sure to post your pages here!

- Obligatory 'have fun' rule.

I'm in, I think it'll do me some good to just do 30 sketched pages instead of 30 fully colored, inked, etc. pages. XP

I'll do it. I'm not sure if I'm doing sketched pages or just watercoloring pages yet.

I want to do my vampire FBI story and I like watercolor, but I have no idea how I'm going to render his digicamo hat in watercolor without wanting to shoot myself.
I'm willing to attempt 30 sketched pages. 8D

I guess I can attempt 30 sketched!
I'm all in. I need to whip me into shape anyway. Do things like splash pages/covers count towards the total?

Sequential art. So it should be part of the actual comic. So no pin-ups or covers. If a splash page is part of the actual story, then go ahead, though.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. Didn't want to screw the pooch by way of technicality. I intend to finish.

I'm in. Fingers crossed, I get something done this time.

Third time lucky, right?
