[EDIT June 25]

Scott Westerfeld himself has been kind enough to mention Dalek Week on the westerblog and said he can't wait to feature some of the week's winners in one of his posts!
If anyone is coming here from the blog and is unfamiliar with deviantArt but would like to participate, signing up to the site is easy and becoming a member of the group is even easier :D If you need any help feel free to leave a comment and one of the founders would be happy to direct you.

That being said, there are only two weeks until Day 1 of Dalek Week! If you haven't even started thinking about what you'd like to draw/write/etc, now would be a good time to start! If you're starting to sketch out some rough drafts or scrawl out some dialogue by now, even better. Best of luck to everyone! :dummy:

:bulletyellow: Dalek Week 2012 Themes: :bulletyellow:


DAY 1: Parents

DAY 2: Roaring 20s

DAY 3: Blindfold

DAY 4: Summer Afternoons

DAY 5: WW II (world war 2)

DAY 6: Obsession

DAY 7: Generations

:bulletgreen: Bonus! : Potatoes

We got some really cool suggestions this year! Hopefully you guys like these themes. Keep in mind that the prompts are completely up for your own interpretation. For example you can interpret the first theme "Parents" as Alek and Deryn being parents or even better, Alek and Deryn's parents. (; This contest is all about originality and creativity so do whatever you think is best!   

To get everyone excited, we will be allowing early submissions for the bonus theme "Potatoes". So go ahead and start your potatoes entries started! And remember to put your submissions in the correct "Dalek Week" folder.

Also I was wondering, to enter our pieces, do we have to click "Submit to group" or submit it on the site, then click "submit to group"? I'm a little confused, and I didn't participate last year ;__;

So, being a newb as I am, could I submit writing to this if it weren't too lengthy?

Thanks! Since I believe I can then submit some of each, I will now draw a little, type a little, and eventually eat or sleep a little. Maybe :)

Best of luck to you, too. You are entering, right? I saw your stuff from last year, all the stuff you've done, for that matter, and it's really awesome. I've been looking forward to Dalek week because it means more deviations from you...

Thanks! And of course I'm entering! I can't officially compete since I'm helping to run the event, but I wouldn't miss out on all the drawing :D Aw really? I'm so flattered! :blush: Hopefully I don't disappoint! :)

Ooh, helping run the event? Sounds exciting and important :) And I doubt you will disappoint. And even if you do, I can just pull up Gender Bending Squirrel or Leviathan Comic Superdump and it will all be better :) (They still make me laugh, even after about 50 times reading them.)
I have to ask, though, do you do your comics freehand or on a computer, or a little of both? I'm totally in awe of how simple, complex, and easy you make them look.

yes! -fist pumps- I loved the entries from last year, and I really like all the creativity here. I don't have a scanner, but is it okay to take a photo then send it via e-mail?

You could probably just take a photo and upload it to the site here :) That would work as well.

Do you have to create something completely new for the prompts or can you enter previously submitted deviations? I have an entire story + cover picture dedicated to the first and fifth prompts planned out (first three chapters submitted...)

I'm young and ignorant, what's "roaring 20s"?
Reply
:iconlissa-molloy:

It was the era after WWI(The 1920s) in which material things were important to people, and also when the "flapper" style of dress for women was super stylish. Google it, and it may make some sense. The Wikipedia page is helpful if you want some background.

The Roaring 20's was the nickname given to the decade of 1920-1929. They called it that because there was an economic boom after the first World War and the quality of life skyrocketed in North America (and possibly Europe, I'm not sure). It ended with the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

Okay, so that's July 8th. Will that be following a specific time zone or can the uploader just submit on the day with their time zone? I apologize for asking too many questions.
