As the file-replace feature may not be returning for a while, and I still really want to use this site actively, I'm thinking about how to handle uploads past the point where I found good color correction settings to improve scan quality. May just need to put a disclaimer on my profile for the time being.
This year, my October art project is themed around the myriad holidays in October, ranging from major to minor in notoriety. I will be posting one piece a day representing at least one of that day's holidays. Pieces will be in various stages of completion, from pencil lines to ink to color.
Below, I have compiled a list of holidays I personally considered for art prompts, but there are additional holidays I didn't include that you may find interesting yourself. There are various holiday calendars available online that can lead you to more options; but remember, please be careful to research things like religious, cultural, and legal associations holidays may have if you choose to do something similar! I did my best to avoid including any such holidays.

I haven't had anything to post here for a while because I've just been working on Chromatica Experience for weeks and it's taken up all my time, lol. October should bring some fun and exciting things, though.
I came across this being promoted in a Discord server I'm in, and have decided to join and spread the word!
While more information is available in the tweet thread and the project's Discord server, here are some quick notes:
○ Sign-ups for both visual and written art are open from August 6 until August 20! Entries can be submitted any time between August 21 and October 21.
○ The fanzine will be released on Halloween, and distributed as a PDF to the Paypal e-mail addresses of all who donate to the fanzine's Ko-fi between October 31 and November 7.
○ All donations are being given to The Trevor Project.
○ Submitted work does not need to be a fully-rendered art piece or studio-quality; all levels of skill and resources are accepted, as long as submission requirements are followed.
