Is rendering greyscale through markers or watercolors acceptable? Will slight variations in grey tones show up, or should our greys be flat?

Nolan Woodard said...

It says "flat grays are preferred". This is to make sure the quality of print is as good as can be. You could easily do your submission with markers or watercolor but it would be a guessing game on how well it would print. The SAV people who will be determining which story gets printed know this and therefore may reject your submission on the grounds it won't look as nice printed as other stories due to these grayscale mediums. So I would recommend a more traditional line art with flat grays as the specifications state.

where can I find the applications mentioned?

Hopefully we will have the applications from SAV at the beginning of Winter quarter and will post it then. For now focus on your submission. Without that an application is moot.
