Hi All!

It's time for mandatory check-ins for all Equinox vidders! If everything is still good on your end, you can leave a "still in!" sort of comment here or email us at equinoxvids@gmail.com. If you know at this point that you will not be able to complete your assignment, please let us know. All vidders must check in by August 31st at the latest; we'll try to contact you if you don't, but if we're unable to reach you, you'll be assumed to be in default.

Comments on this post are screened.

Also, posting is open! If you need help posting, there's a visual guide in the Rules & Guidelines, or you can contact us for assistance.

Rating:  Gen
Fandom:  Daredevil (and the Defenders)

Content Notes: No AO3 warnings apply. Pencil drawing, colored in photoshop, with a digitally painted background. 

So I made the coloured background for In Space a reality last night. It went quicker than expected! I also made some WIP shots which I put in the post in my journal.

I'd like to thank everyone participating in this community for all the encouragement and inspiration. You guys have really been jumpstarting my creativity in a big way - via your own art and/or comments!

Content Notes: For me, the spiral shape immediately brought to mind one Derek Hale. I thought charcoal pencils would work nicely for a little torso study. I included some pics from the process as well. :)

Hi all!

It's almost time to check in already! A mandatory check-in post will be made here at Dreamwidth on August 20th, and the check-in period will run until August 31st. If we don't hear from you during that time and cannot get in touch with you, we will assume you have dropped out and will post a pinch-hit. After that, the official low-penalty default deadline is September 10th.

We also wanted to let you know that if you're looking to make treats, you can see the list of requests here on AO3! There is also a list of Dear Equinox letters available.

There is detailed information about deadlines, check-ins, defaulting, and treats at our Rules & Guidelines page.

Thanks! We are excited to see what vids you create for our Based On Books theme!
