Call: Ads Wanted for Metroid Prime: Episode of Aether!

Postby CapCom » 02.18.11 1:33pm

Hi everyone! We're looking for ads to place in the Metroid Prime: Episode of Aether manga! The original has some pretty worthless ads for Comic Bom Bom products, but we figured it would be a LOT more interesting to replace them with new ads about Metroid!

Anyone can contribute!

Here's the guidelines:

:metroid: This is not a contest. It is a creative project for all Metroid fans!

:metroid: Ads MUST be about something Metroid-related. Go crazy! These come in three categories:
:AH: Ads for Metroid: Actual or imagined products such as games, action figures, Metroid Metal, and other comics and manga.
:AH: Ads for the MDb: Any special service the Metroid Database provides, including news, translations, interviews, fanart, and the forum!
:AH: Ads from the Metroid Universe: Canonical or fan/fictitious products available in the Metroid Universe, such as suit upgrades, starships, gas-and-go services, and Phazon Flakes.

Sample ads:

http://www.metroid-database.com/images/3_3v2.jpg

:metroid: Ads must be in black-and-white. The manga is grayscale, so the ads must be too. (if we choose to use your entry, but it was submitted in color, it will be converted to black and white)

:metroid: Ads should fit within the black lines of the ad box (or size stated in pixels). Your ad may be smaller, but if it is too large, it will be cropped or resized to fit! Check back for updates, as we'll need ads for Chapter 5, too!

:cookie: Filled ads have been struck and cookied. However, if you made an ad for a page that's been filled, check another page to see if your ad will fit or can be resized!

:ridley: Also note that we don't have an actual copy of Chapter 2, so the ads are smaller for those pages!

:metroid: Note that ads are aligned with the top corner of the panel it is shown alongside of. Ads should ideally extend the length or height of the panel/s they are shown alongside of, but they absolutely must not exceed that measurement!

:metroid: The pages are originally sized at 1800x2480px. They are resized to 801x1200px for distribution on the site. So, the ad should look good in both full-size and when shrunk. Make sure to send in a lossless version (.tif or .psd preferred) of the original and/or versions for both sizes!

:adam: This is not a contest.
:adam: Ads will not be bought or sold.
:thumbsup: Mods and Administrators may submit ads.

:adam: Post your ads here or e-mail them to me! Remember to send them in lossless (.tif or .psd preferred) format, and ideally with the fonts in layers so they can be cleanly scaled!

That's it, folks!

I made an ad for the 1st one, vertical half sized at 2.03 - 110x654.

Here it is:

Great! I got some more ads for Chapter 2! Now there's only one ad left. If we don't get anything soon, I'll make something up :)

Thanks Varia and Chozo Child!

I created some more ads and also uploaded .pngs for the exact size of the ad. Now your ad must fit inside the box and be in grayscale!

It was a shameless bump for the sake of advertising.

Capcom, do you still need more ads? I want to make sure before I start working on more of them.

All ads have been filled. Should new ads be required for a future translation project, this will be reopened. Thank you to everyone who helped out! This project was lots of fun!
