. . . Necromancia Op.6 . . .
The chosen theme of the year 2014 is +Alice in Wonderland+
Details about the theme:
This theme suggests a revisited version of the fantastic tale of C. Dodgson (Lewis Carrol) made by a panel of worldwide artists with very different art worlds, skills and view of Wonderland's universe.
Each artist will introduce, of their choice, a part of the Wonderland's world, or a scene from the story of Alice, or a character from the tale, the all in giving a new and personal view of it.
Participing Artists of opus 6 (non complete list for the moment)
Each artist will have to draw between 1 and 2 artworks that will be focused on (of choice):
- an introducing of a character from Alice in Wonderland's tale (Alice, Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, Absolem, the Queen of Hearts, the White Rabbit etc....)
- a landscape that represents a part of the numerous land of Wonderland's world (the rabbit Hole, the Queen of Heart's castle etc...)
- a scene including a part from the original story (the tea party, the fall of Alice in the rabbit Hole etc...)
The all in a revisited version depending of the participing artist's imagination.
It's a complete artwork with full BG, not a simple "chara-design" with an empty background.
. . . Warning . . .

I'm not good at drawing backgrounds, is a BG necessary? Yes it is, though we do accept patterns or gradients.
Do your best.^^
All style are allowed, please don't change your drawing's way for the book, diversity of artists's panel is the greatest value of the book.^^
Finished artworks must be uploaded on a private sit (like DA sta.sh) and sent to senior members with the link for upload it in a note.
Wait for our review before upload the preview pic of your work in your gallery please.^^
About the price: until this edition, we used Lulu as printer. But for this edition, maybe we'll change for new printer. If you know a very good online printer with best quality-low prices, please tell us who.^^ It could be very intesresting for proposing the artbook with a better low price.^^
Shipping and orders: the book will be printed in a very collector edition, just for June and July 2014. We can send it overseas without problem. Final price will be indicated as soon as we'll receive the totality of artists's works.^^ The postal charges will be in more.
If you're a participing artist, will you won a free copy of the book ?:
We hope we'll be able to do that. It'll clearly depend on the final number of participing artists.
- In the case that we can offer a free copy : we'll just ask to each participing artist the postal charges for sending them their copy.
- In case we can't offer a free paperback copy : we'll send you a digital file of the final book.
And be sure that if you though want a paperback copy, we'll ask you a very low price (printer price) in order to thank you all for your fabulous contribution if you want to buy a copy.^^
Will have participing artists a remuneration for their contribution?
Unfortunately not. Necromancia is a project based on the volunteering and only in order to promote worldwide artists while the European Comic Con.
But in exchange, the Necro-team will take care of the printing's expenses, and of the promotion while the Comic Con in Paris.
The printing is unique, only for the Comic Con in Paris. Our aim isn't to become rich on the back of participing artists, but to have fun with new art classmates and promote them in front of a new audience as we explained to all of you in personal notes.^^
Will can participing artists have their own stock of books?
Yes, why not, we can print a bit more books for you and send you them for the suite but please note that we'll make only one printing (for Comic Con).^^
The price per book will be the same that we'll pay to the printer for having our stock for the Comic Con, and we'll ask you in more the postal charges for the sending but yes, it's possible.^^
Pre-orders and orders of the artbook will start at the end of May/beginning of June 2014.^^
All our contributing artists will be credited.
Promoting: you can make it where you want!!!! We'll try to make a special facebook account in more of the DA group for it.
Be sure that all your help will be very welcome, and very thankx for it by advance!!!!! >w<
For all other questions : you can note senior members for it. We'll try to do our best for give you the details that you need.^^
