A number of artists shared their Vampirella covers and pinups for Mindy Wheeler’s Vampirella Drawing Contest.
Artist Mindy Wheeler described the Vampirella Drawing Contest on her YouTube channel.
She begins by detailing that she is working with Dynamite Entertainment for a Mindy Wheeler Studios exclusive Vampirella cover, “I actually contacted Dynamite and I got the go ahead for a Mindy Wheeler Studios variant exclusive cover. It will be launching on IndieGoGo very soon.”
She continued, “So I thought of a way to say my thanks to those who have been following me and supporting me for a long time through thick and thin. And that is a Vampirella Drawing Contest.”
Wheeler then explains the specifics, “So, the winner of this contest will actually get their artwork published on the back cover of my exclusive.”
She then details what she’s looking for, “It can be a head shot, a full body, or a torso. It doesn’t matter to me. It can be color or black and white. It doesn’t matter just as long as she’s in full costume we won’t have a problem.”
“Please submit your pieces publicly to me whether you are on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram just tag my profile or my page and be sure to #VampirellaDrawingContest. I won’t ask for the final art file until the end of the contest. And then I will contact you. Your final art file should be saved at 400 DPI and be a standard comic size which I believe is 6 and 5/8 inches by 10 and 1/4 inches.”
While in the video Wheeler indicates the deadline to submit was June 11th, she extended the deadline to July 5th.
On Twitter she wrote, “I’m extending the deadline for the contest submissions to JULY 5TH! Things have been awfully weird trying to coordinate this w/ COVID lockdown & printers shutting down! I think it’s better this way, though.”
