    Love 100 Artists Celebrate Kirby's 100 Birthday



    In this 100th year celebration of Jack Kirby, how about we get a hundred artists to draw 100 characters created by The King; whom we all draw inspiration from in our comicbook art.

    One hundred characters or teams have been carefully selected to represent all periods from The King’s career. Digital files will be submitted at the proportional size of 6.625“ x 10.25“ and will be 300 dpi. One character per artist.

    We then put it together as a plain vanilla .CBR and an interactive PDF with everyone getting the credit they deserve

    The layout of the issue will be roughly:

    1. Cover

    2. A short text piece about Kirby

    3. Bio about Kirby.

    4. The pin-ups or sequential pages created by the 100 artists. However, you want to pay tribute to him based on the character selected.

    5. Credit pages with each artist providing name or username, country, favorite Kirby issue, your web-site link.

    6. Back cover

    This will not be printed. It is strictly for download by the participating artists and whoever has the link.

    Due date to submit completed art is May 31st. Art can be in color or black & white. Do what you are best at; drawing or painting.
    Completed book and links to be provided on June 30th.

    Okay, lets celebrate!

    Start by putting in your bid for the character you want to draw in the comments below. Indicate your request by name.

    The original post will be updated as slots are filled by artists.

    JPGs can be shared in this thread.

    I don't know exactly what you mean by number, but I'll do Big Barda. Also, some of the choices are teams, like the X-Men, which character may want to clarify since he didn't necissarily have anything to do with a lot of the more modern ones like Wolverine or Gambit for example. Also for others, like the FF, should they do the whole team, or should individual members listed? Lastly, are you classifying Nick Fury S.H.I.E.L.D agent and Sgt. Fury as separate entities? Not trying to make things difficult, just making observations.

    Good observations, Jeloschi, thanks.

    I was originally going to number them and bagged that idea. I clarified the other points.
