EDIT: Sign-Ups are now closed! I'm waiting for the last of the OCs to be posted and then I will send out everyone's SS requests! Thanks to all for participating!
EDIT: People seem to be confused about the number of refrences needed. It just means show three pictures of your character from different angles so people know what the character looks like as much as possible. I also added a new "rule" about the refrence pictures down below. Look for the yellow "NEW" icon.
Thought I'd host my own secret santa. Help my friends get more art of their characters and stuff. Anyone can sign up! You don't have to be a watcher or a friend. =3Rules and How to Sign-Up
- Secret Santa is a fun way to get a little extra gift of something you love as a nice surprise.
- To sign-up simply state the following:
"I, (your name here), wish to sign-up for Secret Santa. I will follow the rules and respect the others participating in this event." If you do not write that forum on your comment then you will NOT be allowed to participate.
-After I have accepted you, you must write down FIVE characters you wish for your SS to create for you. Make sure to number them 1-5 and give a short description about what you would like to see. Example:
1. My pit-bull Fido. Maybe he's playing Frisbee or rolling in the grass
2. My robot character Beep-Bop, dancing at a night club or something similar
ect, ect, ect.
Note: You don't have to follow that exact formula but please keep your descriptions to a minimum. Its up to the other person to surprise you with your gift.
-Out of the five you posted, your SS will choose ONE from the list to create for you.
-Please be sure to include at least THREE reference pictures of the characters you are offering. Please don't post requests of the same character More than three times. The idea is to give your SS multiple characters and scenarios to choose from so it will be a surprise.
-You can post someone else's character as well, like a gift for your friend or maybe your friend's character with your own. (Make sure you still give THREE reference picture per character)
- You can do ONE ref picture ONLY if it shows the character at more than one angle with a lot of detail on the sheet. Like this for an example:
-There can be up to only THREE characters in one drawing or writing. You can't ask for eight characters interacting in your one drawing/writing.
-You MUST be prepared to be responsible! If you sign-up then you will HAVE to get your part of the SS turned in on time. If you fail to come through on the commitment then you will be banned from doing a SS again and your half of the SS will not be uploaded.
-Drawings MUST be fully colored with a background. The BG can be simple but don't just make it one color or a gradient. Character(s) MUST be full body- if there are multiple characters then half-bodies are acceptable.
-Writings MUST be literate and written in a paragraph format like reading a book. They must have a minimum of 1,000 words. A thumbnail photo is highly recommended unless you really can't draw even a stick-man. Thumbnail photo can be extremely simple.
-If there is an emergency or you need an extension for some reason, you must contact me no more than FIVE DAYS before the due-date.DUE DATES
