In Search of More Art!

Calling all artists! We here at Anime Fusion are in need of more art! This time, we are looking for art for badges, and Program Guide. If you've participated in our art contests before, then you know that the prize is well worth it. You can win a free badge to our convention this year; plus your art and name of choice will be displayed for everyone to see!
Below are some details on what it is we need: (Please note that the final version of each piece must be digital art with clean lines. We require photoshop format and prefer layers.)

For all categories, we would like you to submit a simple line sketch of your concept. You can send all inquiries and submissions to . Our main color is a light blue. The exact hexadecimal is #03cee9. Please contact for a file of our mascots. These should be included in your designs.

Badge Art:

Anime Fusion uses multiple categories of badges, each with its own design. The submitted artwork is overlaid on a background by our badge designer; so all artwork must be in a layered photoshop format with transparency. Most badge art consists of a character dressed and/or acting in someway that relates to the convention or this year's theme. This year's theme is "Racing Through Time." The artwork should also mesh well with the different background colors of the badge. The different badge categories are:
Adult (Blue)
Minor (Yellow)
Artists (Purple)
Dealer (Green)
Guest (Pink)
Sponser (Gray)
Staff (Black)
Try to avoid a design that requires the art to be nested in the corner(s) of the badge. It should be free-standing, or along the bottom is also fine. Badges will be 4" wide by 3" tall, in landscape. 2550x1950 pixels. Artwork should be made to accommodate this size or larger (can reduce to fit layout if necessary). Credit for artwork used will be printed on the back of each badge in the credits section.


We'd like to liven up our program guide a bit with small illustrations scattered throughout the guide. These would ideally be related to the different areas of the convention that are featured in the guide. For example, on the Dealers Room page, we could have a character carrying a bag of plushies. The current sections of the program guide are:

The Reactor Lounge (casual hangout space)
Hospitality (rice, ramen, and other snacks)
Tabletop gaming
Video gaming
Dealers Room
Artist Alley
Masquerade (cosplay contest)
Room parties
Autograph sessions
Video rooms

These drawings need to be in grayscale with a transparent background. Basic lineart is also acceptable for this. Everyone whose artwork is used will be credited in the program guide.

Concepts need to be in our mailbox by September 3rd. We will make a decision on what art we want to use in that next week and then contact you. Please include a good email to contact you at.

Good luck to everyone! We can't wait to see your concepts!
