dA is offering the opportunity to become a published author or artist
through the Odyssey Project!
For those unaware, the Odyssey Project is a dA wide community collaboration for authors and artists alike where they join forces to create and illustrate a narrative. All skill levels are welcome and anyone has a chance at getting in! Even if you have no interest in the end result, it's still awesome practice for newbies looking for feedback and to improve their skills.
While the event is mostly over, there's still a chance to sneak your way into the published book of all the entries the judging team deems l337 enough to be there~
The categories still open for submission are:
Chapter 7 illustration
Chapter 8 illustration
A name for the story
Possible future contributions include:
Front cover artwork
Back cover artwork
Credits page for all the participants
The closing date for these submissions has been extended until further notice, which means people have plenty of time to make up an entry~ Even if you don't steal the "official" submission spot, entries $techgnotic
and co. deem to be awesome will also be included in the book. Graphic artists are in particularly high demand! *nudge nudge* All proceeds from the book sales are being donated to charity to celebrate the first running of the Odyssey Project~
Some of the benefits of publishing include:
A shiny stamp of awesome on your resume (especially useful for prospective authors
