:bulletred: Your layout must leave room for the Lost Kids logo but do not include it in your art.

:bulletred: Check out our website for more information about all the characters and feel free to download the entire screenplay available online right here www.the-lost-kids.com/Seeking%… if you feel like drawing a scene from it

:bulletred: As many entries per contestant as you like, feel free to do a series of covers if you want, keep it PG-13.

:bulletred: Submit by featuring it in your own gallery with a link or avatar back to this page, then "note" or email me a link to your image. Your entry is confirmed when it is featured in their own folder: fcagno.deviantart.com/gallery/… and on the Lost Kids Official Group.

:email: felipecagno@hotmail.com

THE JUDGING

Every entry will be evaluated by our panel of judges placed in order as their top five picks. We will average the votes and the top three best reviewed artworks will be crowned winners.

Panel of Judges

:iconartgerm: Stanley is one of the top artists on the planet, having extensively worked for DC Comics and Capcom among other companies.

:icondust-bite: Torri is the "Cartoons and Comics" CV from the DA community and an incredible talented artist taking DD suggestions.

:iconshwann: Everybody knows DJ Shwann around here and I can't think of a better authority on Art Contests.

:iconsaiyagina: Gina is just one of those artists that wows you with everything she works on, it is incredible!

:iconcarlosgomezartist: Carlos is probably one of the best line artists around, his pencils are so incredibly detailed it's awesome!

:iconredeve: Our very own and extremely talented Lost Kids colorist, he really brings out the humanity from the characters.

:iconclonerh: Another member of the Lost Kids creative team, also an amazing colorist with a very unique awesome style.

:iconeddy-swan-colors: Pulling all the stops, we also got Eddy involved, his colors skills are legendary around these parts.

:iconsurfercalavera: Representing the other half of the Lost Kids team, we have Cesar, whose pencils are beautifully detailed.

:iconbiroons: Ivan joined us this year and brought his cinematic mad pencils to our comic book.

:iconfelipecagno: Well, myself because I want to join in on the fun of picking out the best artworks!

:star: How to Write Your Own Comic

Finally I got some time to sit down and work on a new article. This one is about breaking up your story in panels and how that is a collaborative effort between the writer and artist since it's key to the narrative of the book.

Check it out at Writing 302: Action in PanelsYou may think this is solely up to the illustrator of the book but in fact it's actually a shared responsibility between writers and pencillers.
Camera Angles and Storytelling through Panels
As a writer it's your job to define the pacing and flow of the page and how your story will reach the readers. The artist's job is to take those directions, execute them as best as he can and apply his vision on top of the writer's. It is a collaborative effort and that's why writers and artists have to keep a constant communication.
Drawing a pin-up is one thing, telling a story through pictures is something else entirely. All your choices have weight and they should mean something, you should be very conscious of every single decision you take as an artist/writer when working on a comic book.
