The artists

How to Audition as an Artist


  • Send a sample of your work or a link to an online gallery along with a clear statement of intention to work as an artist to It doesn't have to be Project Canada art, but should be a fairly recent example of your skills! .jpg or .png is preferred!
  • If you have been accepted, you should hear back from us within 24 hours! We may send some comments and constructive criticisms as well.

Artist Requirements

  • Creativity: Some scenes will not have very much artistic direction, so you should be able to think outside the box on how to best construct a scene. Being aware of space, timing, detail, and how to complement the spoken lines is all part of this.
  • Legibility: Artists of all backgrounds and skill levels may submit their work. We are specifically looking for artists who can carry a story, which means we would like to see a variety of expressions and gestures. This is a place for fan artists to practice their skills, specifically in sequential art, so the style, medium, or skill level is very open! As long as it is legible, perfect anatomy does not matter.
  • Dedication: Applying to be an artist is a time commitment. It is extremely important that you are aware of deadlines and know your limits; do not volunteer to take on a scene if you cannot do it. Art is the most challenging and time consuming part of the project, so we need to know if you need a replacement or help as soon as possible.  
  • Availability: We need to be able to contact you on the forum as well as either through skype, tumblr, twitter, facebook, or by email. You need to be relatively active on the forum to make sure you are aware of what is going on. If your tumblr url changes or changes often, we need to be notified so we can get in touch with you.

Art for the Project

  • By default, art will be black and white or greyscale unless otherwise specified in the script.
  • 8 x 11.5 is generally a good workspace. If you are scanning traditional art, make sure it is at 200-300 dpi
  • Clean your lines as much as possible! If sketching with pencil traditionally, softer pencils (HB-B) work best for final lines as H pencils do not register well upon scanning.  
  • Certain things may be cut off in the final video, so try to keep your subjects in the center and work with a border in mind.  
  • The specifics of the art are up to the scriptwriter. Some writers will leave a lot of artistic freedom, some will have a certain vision in mind. When in doubt, discuss the scene with the writer and the other artists.
  • Always check the forum for reference images and consistency guidelines before you start drawing!
