New featured art postedThis week's Anime Angels featured art is "For Only Two" by Onirin, and you can see it in the "newest deviations" section at animeangelsbook. Feel free to take a look, add it as a favorite, submit the art to DA galleries if you like, and so on.
We also just recently set up a separate Paypal page for Anime Angels book preorders, for people who either don't have a credit card or who don't want to create an Amazon account (required by Kickstarter). The Paypal preorder page is here: http://www.animeangelsbook.com/preorder.html
However if you have a choice, it's slightly better to use the Kickstarter page at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1471091733/anime-angels-artbook
New DA page, and a great preorder posterWe've started an official DeviantArt site for the book at :iconanimeangelsbook: where we'll be posting selected artwork from the book over the next several weeks. So feel free to take a look at animeangelsbook
And Red-Priest-Usada made a great publicity artwork for the book - here's the thumbnail image:
You can click the image to see the larger version. She has two artworks in the book, and this publicity art shows the initial lineart for one of them.

Please tell your friends... and thanks for helping angels to fly!
Submissions are closed, decisions are madeArt submissions closed on January 8. Thanks to everybody who submitted art for consideration! We were able to accept just under 100 artworks from over 60 artists. Email notifications (both acceptances, and regrets) have gone out to everybody who submitted art, so if you submitted art, please check your email inbox for a notice, which you should have received on Jan. 12. The next step is to get artist agreements from everybody, and assemble the art files.
A Kickstarter campaign to accept preorders for Anime Angels is coming soon (later in January), so keep an eye out for that.
At last, the new cover is hereIt took a bit longer than expected, but the revised book cover design is finally here! Contributing Anime Angels artists can see it in the private gallery here at maronmedia.deviantart.com. Based on feedback from the original cover draft, we changed the approach and are instead going with a Pixiv-inspired "lightweight" theme that has the text at the bottom with the Japanese as a subtle addition, rather than a dominant feature of the cover. The new layout also zooms in a bit on the angel so that we can see her face better. This design should look particularly good at its full 8.5x11 size when the book goes to print.
The new cover design is by :iconfinni: - thanks, Finni!
Art deadline extended to January 8, 2012(This is a shorter version of the update sent out to the artists' email list).
As we can see from the results of the latest DA poll, a large number of people (30 artists so far) said that a due date extension for the art submissions would be helpful. With that in mind, I'll go ahead and extend the due date to early January: Sunday, January 8, 2012. This should give everybody who was experiencing schedule stress some extra time to make 1 or 2 nice angel artworks.
Many thanks to everybody who has already submitted artwork for the book - about 10 people have sent in art so far, and it looks great.
In December I'm likely to create a trailer video for the book, so if you've already submitted art, I might contact you directly to accept your art early and get permission to feature it in the video trailer. So there is still an advantage to doing your art by December 15.
Thanks for your cover art poll votesThanks to all contributing artists who voted and commented in the recent poll about the cover art with text. I've now moved the poll off of the front page, and shifted the draft version of the cover-with-text back to the private gallery, so we can treat the poll as closed even though DeviantArt doesn't have the concept of "closing a poll".
The votes at the time that I shifted the poll were nearly 50-50 split, with 16 "I like it" and 18 "Change it!" votes. I'll be working through the comments over the next few days so that I can give some consistent guidance to my graphic designer. My general feeling is that it should be possible to make some changes that respond to people's "Change it!" comments, without annoying the people who liked the cover-with-text with no changes.
The cover art is now available for public viewA significant number of DA members noticed the Anime Angels cover art when it was first posted to the private gallery, and listed it as a favorite, which is great. Since the cover art definitely isn't going to be secret, even to people who haven't yet purchased the book, I've gone ahead and put it up for public viewing on the main MaronMedia page. This will give more people the opportunity to either Favorite the cover image, or Watch the #MaronMedia group for future updates.
The interior art will continue to stay in the private gallery, and is just for Anime Angels contributors to view in advance of book publication.

Chiye [drawing references]
My mascot oc!
Means she pretty much fits to many themes and that I don't mind you drawing her different from the references ;3
• Name: Chiye
• Age: 17
• Height: 160 cm
• Details: Blue eyes, pink hair and fluffy pink tail
Very happy and positive, loves to talk with people, and is very expressive, but can be super lazy when sad or bored.
Despite being very positive, she is a lazy bun, so if you need help, she will cheer you up, but helping? Oh dear, too much muscles to move!
• Species: she is part dog, part cat and of course, part human.
Stop hating your art and yourselfSo this is something that I've been bottling up for a while and I want to address it. Now, before you harp on me, I am guilty of this from time to time as well. However I want to open up the floor to this conversation.
I try to stay kind and gentle in my conversations with people. However for this, forgive my blunt tone. I am giving people advice based on what worked for me and other professionals I've talked to. This advice is for ANYONE, but mostly visual mediums like drawing, paints, etc. Though if you stretch your mind a bit, it could apply to any medium.
Also I KNOW not everyone wants to be a pro. This is about being a pro. It's about bettering your art. I have people always asking me about getting better and improving, and this is my advice to you all.
A. Your art does NOT suck.
For the love of the planet, PLEASE stop saying this. Your art may not be at the same level as someone else, maybe your family member, your friends, classmates or id

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.
