Summer Glau Wiki 2012 Calendar

After seeing the amazing work of some wiki members on The OFFICIAL Summer Glau Appreciation Page!, i had the idea to create on this wiki a calendar dedicated to Summer Glau.
Fermi alreday had this idea a while ago but it's still a work in progress.
I think that it could be done in two months with the help of the devoted members of this wiki.

Here is a completely non-official and completely non-stringently schedule :
* choice of a template for the cover and a month page : 10 days
* collecting pictures and fanarts : 30 days
* choice of the pictures for the cover and the 12 months : 10 days
* layout : 10 days

Decision process making to avoid useless squabbles : you and me propose and Fermi and Charley decide

In my mind the calendar is made of 13 pictures (the cover and 12 months) so that the final project is under the form of a diaporama. If the result gives satisfaction and is appreciated by the members, nothing prevents us from doing a real book and print the calendar.

Working on a commun project is a good thing to help build a community, i'm waiting for your reactions.

How about compiling a list of national and world holidays to be marked on the calender, as well as Summer's birthdau. Maybe even Firefly, Serenity, and TSCC anniversaries. Or other great moments in Summer Glau history?

I think that would be pretty cool, to see other members holidays along with the ones that would be marked in a calender made for our own particular countries.

This calendar is not an official calendar made to fit the commun rules; it is made by us and we are free to put what ever matches our interests on it.
National and world hollydays are too vague, not Summer related and would take too much room on the calendar square. On the opposite, great moments in Summer history is a good idea

Edit : see answer on post #16.

Eh, only thirteen ... Maybe two or three versions for different subjects? For example Firefly, TSSC and photoshoots\other.

Pick up three sets of art and, upon completion of the selection to solve - what to do next smile

Upd. - But be that as it may, I will take part in this biggrin . Where to upload pictures, pretending to part?

I suggest we wait till we have an agreement on a template and format for the calendar, then we can start to work on pictures fiting the template. (the pictures could be uploaded on this thread or maybe Fermi will provide us a place to do this)
But everyone can start thinking about the pictures themselves right now so that we can upload and start choosing on step 2.

In my mind, the pictures should not be raw pictures of Summer Glau; it should be worked on pictures, the kind you can find on The OFFICIAL Summer Glau Appreciation Page!. Almost every shot of the Esquire photoshoot is eligible but we should avoid to add pictures from this video only and look for diversity in order to reflect the diversity of Summer's work.

Edit : i'll give you examples of what is Calendar material and what is not :

Not calendar material :

Back to the templates ! I will upload all the templates in this post to see all the template at once.

What do we want to have on a month page :

  • a date block
  • a picture or more
  • text or pict on a date square

I will show you examples and tell you what i prefer and why; feel free to comment yourself.

1) let's start with Fermi's first attempt

Pros :
the transparency effect to have the date block and the image on the same page

Cons :
does not highlight the picture
hide the picture if text directly on a date square
not enough artistic quality (not template-related though)

Opinion : not kept (sorry Fermi but i want top notch calendar)

2) wall calendar

Pros :
sober style
highlight the image
allow text outside the date section and image section
allow text inside a date square (remains to be tested)

Cons :
i prefer lanscape format
best for raw picture but remain to be tested for fan art

Opinion : professional look and lot of features

3) lanscape 1

Pros :
highlights the image
classy
easy to turn into a destop wallpaper

Cons :
no text or picts on date square
too uncluttered style for my taste

Opinion : classy but not nesserarily what we're looking for

4) lanscape 2

Pros :
good proportion between picture and date section
bakground image and front image
date block not too big and tranparent

Cons :
no room for additional text (or use transparency effect)
numbers of date square too big

Opinion : well designed and balanced -lack of features though

In general - the wall version is better, IMHO

There are many designs of wall calendars, until I'm not ready to submit the appropriate versions in a little later.

PS - Happy serious approach Michelangelo biggrin

Feel free to submit a template if you want; no choice has been made for now and there is more templates to examine before choosing one. This is why it's better not to upload pictures now.

I think that looks awesome, but the Cameron fan art Ninjawolf posted comes from my old photobucket album I did not make that one and I don't remember where I got it from. I don't think it is a good idea to use other peoples fan art in this calendar without asking first.
