Hrm, excellent question.
Given that I quite like the idea that you could actually use the resulting calendar, feel free to reflect your own seasons, but perhaps make a note in your entry post that it's e.g. a southern hemisphere version!

For the calendar:

On the image with all the months, can we put the days/weeks ect, but on the larger images only have the image itself?

I'm thinking of the file size limit on Photobucket and not having that space with all the days on it would allow the illustration to be larger.

Edit: I'm probably going to regret giving myself this big of a project , haha.

Further questions:
 
I have a question regarding the calender, are we allowed to use art that we created, from the past?
The work for the doodle should be original, not something you've posted previously. If it's art you've drawn previously but never shown publically, I wouldn't honestly be able to know!

 
On the image with all the months, can we put the days/weeks ect, but on the larger images only have the image itself?
If the part with the days/months contains nothing else but those, then yes, you can skip them in the detailed images, as long as we can see them in the composite image!

Question from the entry thread:
 
Do you want a single image showing all 12 months joined together making each page no larger than 200*150 (given that the max size overall is 600*600. If so it would be difficult to see each image.
Can we make the entry image like the cover page on a calendar showing one of the images overlayed with a title.

To your first question, basically "yes". The image in the thread is mainly for reference / navigation - the detail will be seen in the larger linked images. To your second question, if I understand correctly, then "no", because I need to see all the images in that composite picture, and to see that you've included the months/days/dates as well as just a picture for each month.

Would a gif composite be allowed to show off the final product? Where it basically flips through the months in one image?

I couldn't resist claiming the 100th post in this thread.

Also.

A wrapping-paper Rory would have been too awesome to contain, Bud, so I think you did me a favor by not finishing it.

Another stupid question regarding the doodles...can we make some of the *seasonal* themes reflect actual seasons in our own lives? (etc. birthdays and such?) Or travelling to other places (possibly changing the weather season mid year?) Or would we be penalized for this?

I'd really prefer to have everything in one stable image - the entry post image is just a reference for me, and to check everything's there.

I think it's reasonable to reflect summer holidays somewhere over the summer season (as we do with the summer seasonal trinkets), but I think it could get quite confusing if the apparent season suddenly changes. I don't have a problem with you marking your birthday with a birthday cake or something, to personalise it for yourself. But don't let it interfere with the generic movement of theme during the year!

Okay, I'm just a little bit bouncy. This is slightly relevent, in that it's related to the area my calender is set in. Which I love with a passion, so I'm sharing.

This video was put together by our occasional neighbour this week, and he's used some of our photos to illustrate his song. The more stunning professional ones were taken by my brother.

The snowboarder is my firstspawn. =D

I still have to finish shading for 8 months (4 pages) >.< Taking over 6 hours per page thus far is making me worried i may not finish in time >.< And then the intermittent unreliability of the forums not working >.< At least I have the basic pictures all drawn up...Guess i better stop procrastinating and get back to shading ... Great entries so far btw ^_^

As a girl with pretty moderate scoliosis, sitting for long periods is painful.

As a girl who tends to have a lot of AP homework, free time tends to be minimal.

As a girl who had two afternoons to do her calendar, I can deal with that!

I'm going to go die now.

Calendars are looking absolutely amazing!

Actually, Dex, I was thinking about this, but it seems like it's basically the same story as Grease 2, but with less singing and more beheading.

And is it wrong that now I'm just a tiny bit in love with the cardboard cut-out of Faeree's brother? Yes, yes it is.
