The artists are now revealed on AO3! You can post your art anywhere you'd like now and if you post to tumblr make "artfever" one of your first five tags and I'll reblog it.

Thank you, everyone, for participating! :D I know some of you had to default, but hopefully Art Fever wasn't a negative experience for you. If there's anything that you think I should change in the fest or in my modding, please let me know.

I hope the rest of the year and the new year are good to all of you. See you next round!

The collection is now revealed!

I saw someone ask for a different event if it's okay to post art onto other platforms during an exchange. For Art Fever, the answer is yes, but not until after artists are revealed on AO3. That will be Nov 20th at 10 PM CST.

After the 20th, you may post your art wherever you'd like and if you post onto Tumblr you can tag "artfeverfest" and I'll reblog it. Or you can submit it to the blog directly if you prefer.

Assignments are due today at 10 PM. If you need an extension ask for one before 10.

I've noticed that there seems to be an inconsistency on AO3. There are 9 mystery works in the collection but only 7 assignments are showing up as complete. If you submitted a work and haven't received any hits please contact me. The mystery has been solved: they're treats.

The due date is this Sunday at 10 PM CDT. Here's a count-down.

If you need more time please ask for an extension before the deadline because I will default any open assignments once the deadline has passed. If you need an extension, email me at artfevermod@gmail.com or PM on LJ/DW with your AO3 username and an estimate of how much more time you'll need.

Sign-ups will close at 9 PM CDT. Here's a countdown timer.

I noticed that some of the sign-ups are missing DNWs. This isn't against the rules but it would be a good idea to add a list of what you don't want for the exchange. DNWs are the only thing that your artist is required to stick to from your optional details and if you don't have any listed it looks like you're up for body fluids, noncon, character death, flower crowns, and anything else that your artist thinks up. If you're really fine with anything then adding "DNWs: None" would be clearer for your artist.

You can link your letters here. Make sure to include your AO3 username. The LJ post is here.

Last round, some people said they weren't sure how to write art prompts. There's no wrong way to go about it but some general tips are:

  • List Do Not Wants and Likes (art tropes, fan tropes, kinks, plots, art styles (do you want canon-style?), typography, etc)

  • Mention what you like about a character/ship/fandom (this can help your artist brainstorm their own ideas)

  • Short actions can make great prompts ("X throws a sleep over", "X and Y [do thing] together", "Z is comforting X", etc)

  • AUs can work well too ("Vampire AU", "Y as a Junji Ito character", "this canon as an anime")

  • Describe scenes in detail

  • If you picked something from Original Works or Crossover Fandom, it can be helpful if you explain what drew you to that tag. For instance, if you picked "A Tree" what sort of tree are you interested in seeing? An inked birch? Something Yggdrasil-like? A man-eating tree?

  • Fic prompts can be good for art too but it can be helpful to single out a few images from a story idea that you'd be interested in seeing in case your artist doesn't have time to make comics/animations

  • If you ask for banners, wallpapers, icons, reaction images, pixels, or transparents make sure to specify what sizes you would need

  • Remember that your requests can be as long or as short as you want.

All right so survey results:
6 Oct
5 Sept
1 each for Nov, Dec, and Other

I decided to go with October because starting in September would require either shortening the noms/sign-ups or having a due date that was very close to Trick or Treat's, which was Oct 24th last year.

Tentative exchange schedule:
Nominations: Aug 28 - Sept 11
Sign-ups: Sept 14 - Sept 28
Assignments Due: Nov 6

This isn't set in stone yet so if you have any concerns, let me know and I'll try to tweak it.

I'm getting ready for round 2. I made a survey to see when you all would like it to start. You can check it out here. The FAQs have been adjusted and there is now an AO3 posting guide.

Major changes from last round are:
-You can now nominate more fandoms, characters, and ships (6 of each)
-Nominations will be two weeks
-Sign-ups will be two weeks

As always, if you have any questions you can let me know on any of the comms or email me at artfevermod@gmail.com.
