Advent Calendar 2016 - start painting now!

As last years Advent Calendar was such a huge success, we are having another :laughing:

This may seem early but given the last minute panic attacks the entire editorial team was suffering from during the last one, I though I'd try and get things rolling a little earlier.

So...

...same as last year, we would like to invite all artists to create a unique Malazan image for a virtual Calendar to be published each day of the festive season on the homepage of the Wiki.

The image can be either a straight forward Malazan fan art image or a festive season image with a Malazan spin.

If you need inspiration - some of the main characters are already well presented in our gallery and it would be great if people had a go at some of the less popular (from a painting point of view) characters! Given that it is still a long way ahead - how about whole scenes from the books???

If you would like to take part please let us know in this thread.

And don't forget - keep your project secret! We'll have another Dropbox folder nearer the time to collect the images so they'll stay a surprise until the virtual windows are opened on the day :whistle:

Thanks for the kinds words Dolmen 2.0 , those sketches were done by the light of the television with some really dry markers. I've already started working on my contribution; a digital illustration that I think will be a lot of fun, and perhaps thematically appropriate. I don't want to spoil any reactions to the finished piece so I'll just mention that I'm re-reading Midnight Tides at the moment.

Just a reminder to all you artists out there - the Advent Calendar is speeding towards us!!!!

We would be really, really, really... 'period, really' grateful, if you could get some of your submissions to us well before the starting date so that we can plan things ahead. We have arranged a new Dropbox folder for this year's calendar so when you are ready, give either Coltaine, Andorion or myself a shout and we'll PM you the link.

We are still looking for more participants - if you like to take part, let us know ;)
