My main interest is to enter the art contests to challenge myself to materialize concepts I wouldn't have picked up otherwise.
I hope my questions are not in any way intrusive: Is there a set calendar of events or another resource were I can see the progression of the art side of the CAP? As of now, I can't figure out if there is a set deadline to have a fully realized entry posted, which would be essential, any information that can be given for my better understanding of the process would be appreciated, verily!.
In anticipation, thanks.
First off, welcome to the CAP Project.
To answer your questions, the CAP Project doesn't have set deadlines to any of its stages - each stage runs for as long as is necessary. However, there is a particular order of events, which you can look at here
- I'd recommend reading some other CAP articles on that site as well, since they explain quite clearly how the process works. As far as the Art is concerned, it is different in that it runs alongside the competitive stages - it opens at the same time as the Abilities discussion, and closes at the same time as the Stat Spread polls. This gives quite a few weeks for artists to get their work together, get feedback, and make whatever changes are necessary - also, there will be a 48 hour grace period after the close of this CAP's Stat Spread stage for artists to finalise their work and post a final submission, so I'll post in the thread to remind everyone of that when the time comes.
If you want to post an art concept, feel free; there are no entry requirements, other than the art specifications that are in that thread's OP. Good luck!
