I’ve had the idea of an art collaboration for this game for a long time, but I finally got the gumption to actually put this idea out there.
So what is this?
This is just another way for the art community in the Battleborn fandom to get together and show our love for this game! Each artist will be drawing one character, so as to allow room for as many people as possible. If there aren’t enough people on board with this, then the artists will get more than one to fill out the roster.
What if I’m interested in being an artist for this?
Simply dm me here (or whatever platform you saw this on) so I can get you assigned to a character. Keep in mind that it will be first come, first serve, but don’t be afraid to request! You never know if someone has been reserved yet.
Is there a deadline for this?
While I’m not going to enforce a hard deadline for this, I would very much like for this to be done by the end of July. You can begin this as soon as you want, but make sure to have it done before August if you want your picture to make it onto the final image.
What do I need to do?
Once you have your character assigned, you’ll be drawing your character in the pose that they’re in on the Lithograph image, as seen in the header above. The reason for this is to be courteous to the other artists and make sure there is plenty of room for them (If the largest characters were all in the front, doing the YMCA poses, then they would be blocking most of the other characters).
Your character will need to be on a transparent backdrop so that I can edit them into the group picture, so digital art will be strongly preferred. I already have to fit them into the group image, so the less editing I have to do to your addition, the better.
They do need to be in color. Battleborn is a colorful game, and the characters even moreso! Please keep them in their default colors.
Since I’ll have to adjust their size to fit correctly in the group picture, please draw them big so that they won’t get blurry when they get resized.
What about the DLC characters?
The 5 DLC characters will be included! Make sure they are posed appropriately and not obscuring too many of the other characters. They will be scaled as closely to their accurate size as possible.
Will I get credit for my artwork?
Of course! Once the picture is finished, I’ll be uploading it onto tumblr with a complete list of all of the artists involved! If you are not on tumblr, you will still be credited and linked to when possible! Please don’t put a watermark over your character as that will interrupt the composition of the full image. I promise, full credit will be given to everyone involved.
Feel free to ask me any further questions that I may have missed in this post. I want everyone to have fun with this!
