So, this is my other project for this year: making a Persona Fanbook! Of course, I’ll need people to participate, so you guys are invited! By October 2015, I want to publish at least one of these I list bellow (depending on what you guys feel like participating with). You can also help spread the word if you are not participating, I made this rebloggable on Tumblr ---  carmenmcs.tumblr.com/post/1132…

So, the things you can participate in are:


- Persona Fanzine: b/w print, a mix of fun comics, more serious ones, ilustrations and maybe a couple of fanfics.


- Persona Illustrations Fanbook: full colour, a classic artbook!


- Persona Yaoi Anthology: b/w pages, mostly doujinshi but also some ilustrations and some fanfics.


——————————————————————————-

If you are interested in collaborating, please leave a comment listing IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE what you would be more willing to participate with! Don’t include in your list what you are not feeling like making, since this is not a popularity poll but a “how many people do we have to make the thing” poll. You can also participate in various of them if we manage to find enough people to organize two books at the same time (hence why we’re asking you to list stuff).


Some info & FAQ before you decide if you are in or not:

—- Who do I contact?
—- Deadline to submit collaborations?
—- Are artists getting paid?
—- Want to draw for this but have no ideas? We do!
—- Want to participate but can’t draw? Write!
—- Where is this going to be sold? 
—- What language will the book be in?
—- I have another question (leave a comment please!)

—- Requirements and conditions to participate?

Oh, I just found this not too long ago but I've already commented for participation on the Suikoden fanbook journal. :'D Not sure if it's too late or I am only allowed to participate in one. x'D

Man I'm kind of late... But I would love to participate! Just to be sure (since some people did mention it) I am from Canada and English isn't my native language, but I think I can do it.
My order of preference is
1- The Fanzine
2- The Fanbook and the Anthology

Seriously, it was kind of hard to choose, so I can tell I am happen to all possibilities.

Well, too bad if I am too late though...

You are not late!

We will have a couple of people to beta read and check for grammar errors and such ^^ As long as your English is good enough for us to understand what your text is meant to say, there is no problem XD

Stay tuned, I'll soon update the final info before the artists start working on it ^^

I'm most interested in the fanzine, followed by the BL book and the illustration book. I will admit that I am not the best illustrator, but I will definitely give it my best effort! I recently made a Christmas card for a friend of mine in comic format, and I can send a sample of that to you soon if you need more of a reference point for my current skills.

ahhh , this sounds so fun!! *7* what a great idea!!
I'd love to participate, for now i'm going to commit to;

the fanzine
the illustration book (alternate if i dont get the fanzine spot!)

making a comic sounds like a lot of fun and i'd definitely like to give it a shot... question, though-- how many pages are you looking for in the fanzine comics? :0

Hi! We are not separating people into various books, we are simply asking around to see what book we can make, because not everyone is up to drawing comics XD So if we don't have enough people who would like to do that, we want to at least make the illustration book, that's the idea ^^

We have not decided for a number of pages. My advice is not to go over one's head and be realistic, I don't think most of us can plan to make more than 25 pages by the end of August XD Comics take more times to plan and execute than single illustrations (and you have to draw various pages, too). I've participated in some fanzines myself, and I was usually given a 20 pages limit... each of we artists managed to put a story nicely in that space (given it's a fanbook so you don't know to explain a lot, since people already know the lore, plot, characters etc.)

I too would like to join in on this project (I just finished Live Streaming P3P recently).

Order of preference.
Fanzine - Illustrations Fanbook.

Plan to be drawing/writing about Fuuka or Rise. Or jokes about some bad game over deaths that most players probably also experianced.

:iconcarmenmcs:
CarmenMCS Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Both things are wonderful, we definitely want some humour in the fanzine XD All games are permitted so you can write about Fuuka and Rise in a Persona Q context or in a Persona Arena context etc.!

Hagáis lo que hagáis seguramente me anime a participar xD Soy una vendida en cuanto a Persona...

Aunque quizá recomendaría Fanzine. Los Fanbooks de ilustraciones me gustan más, personalmente, pero al ser a color suelen ser más caros y quizá haya gente que se eche atrás... D:

Heyyyyy muy buenas compi fanzinera, dile a tu otra compi de la gorra que participe también o iré con mi cosplay de Mitsuru a ejecutarla la la laaa

En principio, tengo la idea de que si hacemos libro de ilustraciones, creo que lo haré de tamaño A5 para que sea más baratito... el libro estará más orientado al público internacional y la venta online que al español, así que cuando llegue el momento abriré preorders y si la gente está interesada en que sea de tamaño A4, pues se hace la tirada y si no, en A5. No debería ser mucho más de 6 euros si se hace en A5, que parece un precio razonable (sobretodo para los americanos que tienen muchos más moneys que nosotros XD)

El fanzine es que depende de que haya suficiente gente para hacer algunos cómics chachis XD La mayoría de la gente se está decantando más por la idea del libro de ilustraciones para no tener que currar tanto, buuuuuuuu peor ya veremos. De momento le daré unos días, a ver qué pasa!

Estamos en contacto <3

Supongo que estás sobretodo interesada en participar en un libro de ilustraciones, ya que sólo mencionas eso... estarías interesada en participar con algún cómic si hacemos libro de cómics/fanzine, o sólo con ilustraciones? Es para hacer recuento de si tenemos suficiente gente para un libro u otro XD (Tienes que mencionar también si te interesaría hacer un cómic/ilustración yaoi o no, okis?)

en lo del yaoi no tengo problema (digo, me pase todo el juego haciendo parejas sin sentido) , en lo que si me hago un lio es en el comic no tengo ni idea de como organizar viñetas 
Asi que solo con ilustraciones
PD: El yaoi es R18 o solo BL (no tengo problemas con ninguno de los dos)

Pensé que estoy sería más de sentido común pero obviamente no lo es porque muchos me comentáis lo mismo XD Así que lo añadiré al FAQ más tarde... no os culpo ni nada, supongo que estoy tan acostumbrada a estos procesos que me parecen más normales y lógicos de lo que lo son en realidad XD

Por un lado: aunque hay que subir algunas ilustraciones y cómics para promocionar el libro, no se deben subir el mateiral (ni mucho menos TODO) a internet. Si hacemos el libro, la gente tiene que tener razones para comprarlo XD

Por otro lado: definitivamente, me las tenéis que mandar por correo con un tamaño grande que está especificado en las instrucciones, o no se podrá usar en imprenta. Las imagenes de la web son MINÚSCULAS y tienen una resolución muy baja, así que no se pueden imprimir. No es que DA no te permita subir imágines enormes, pero eso resultaría en que no sólo no hace falta que se compre el libro para tener las ilustraciones, también se las das al público de internet en tamaño ideal para que se las impriman ellos en buena calidad XD

He respondido a tu pregunta? Luego explicaré mejor todo esto en el FAQ ^^

persona fanzine. 

I dont like the ilustrations books so much, you can find easily the pictures on internet because the artist always upload them, so why Im going to spend money in a book when I can have them more easily with the authors direct link on the computer?
I have buy some ilustration books in my life, and if is not something very "WOW" or important, for example, of disney or pixar because some ilustration you cant find on internet or in their webpages, I think just waste space in the room. 
Is just my opinion and everybody can think other things, but during "CONS" and others, the ilustrations books is the less things I buy.

:iconcarmenmcs:
CarmenMCS Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for your honest opinion!

Since you are making a few points on this regard: none of the fanzine or illustrations books I've participated in allow us artists to just upload our works online, at least not as you seem to think. Usually, after some time and after most of the books are sold, the artists are allowed to -little by little- share some of their contributions online, at least partially. Many times, this is a way to promote the goods, too, because if you don't show anything, there is no reason people should think it's good or worth buying!

On the other hand, you need to understand that the point is that, even if you can find some stuff online, when you are buying stuff from the artists and/or donating you are recognizing the value of their work and helping them continue illustrating in the future... besides, there ARE people who like collecting things and who like artbooks XD

Although knowing who you are and where you live, it's no surprise you have that opinion XD Thanks again!

English.

Hopefully, and since I am a native speaker, if there is enough demand I will print a Spanish version too.

Mostly online.

Since I go to cons and I have an art table / stand in many of them, I will be selling them in most of Barcelona's anime cons too. Sometimes I may go to Madrid's Expomanga or Paris's Japan Expo.

--- Want to participate but can't draw?


Are you a writer? Either participate with a fanfic (we are still deciding if we can allow them or not) or collaborate with artists without ideas to make a comic, illustrated fanfic or illustrated poetry (when the forums are up, you will be able to contact everyone for this).

Back to the fanfics: there are various reasons why we need to think hard about allowing them or not... they'll be only accepted in the black and white books, and we can't allow a bunch of fanfics, so maybe we could make a contest or something to select a couple...? However, what guidelines to use to choose one? With fanfics for the yaoi book it's easier to decide since there is a common theme, but fanfics for the general fanzine can be about everything and it is difficult to compare the different works... Comment with your ideas please! I am not this kind of writer myself, the other in the organization team aren't either, so you guys probably have better ideas than us regarding this.

--- Want to draw for this but have no ideas? We do!

If you want to draw something but can't think of anything, when the forum is up you can contact writers to draw a comic with them, or you can fulfill one of our "wishlist" items!

The "wishlist" will be a list with ideas for drawings to make our book more varied (for instance, it will remind people of some characters that we still haven't added to the book, or some themes).
