Oh look, it's that time of year again folks! I hope this year goes as well as the last ones
For a reminder, here are the gifts from 2012
. Just so you can see all the wonderful art that's come out of this Secret Santa the last three years.
Signups will be open until the Oct 31st, and I'll send out notes on Nov 1st OR
until we've reached 50 people, which then I'll close and send out notes earlier.
Rules to Keep in Mind
All gifts need to be completed by Christmas. If you don't think you'd be able to get yours done in that time frame (which you'll have nearly two months) then don't say you want to join in! I don't want anyone to not receive a gift because their Secret Santa didn't get it done!
I am sorry, but I will not be accepting deviants who only write or do work on bases only. I am also sorry to say there is a minimum requirement to skill level so it's fair for everyone, so If I turn you down please don't take it too hard to heart and know it's only because I'm trying to do what is fair for all involved.
Your piece HAS to be colored. It'd be no fair for someone to receive a sketch/lineart while they put in lots of effort coloring a picture. So yeah, all pieces must be colored. Traditional or digital don't matter though.
Make sure you have decent refs of your characters in your gallery. You can link to them or ask for specific chars you'd like to see drawn, but yeah, no references of your chars would make it hard for someone to draw them wouldn't it?
No posting your art until Christmas! If you have a reason why you wouldn't be able to then you can post it before then as long as you post the reason, but do try and hold off until the day if possible!
No telling the person you're drawing for that you got them, keep it a surprise, that's the point of secret santa! If you have a question for yours and want to ask the person then ask me the question and I will go and ask it for you.
If you entered last years and did not finish your piece, you are blacklisted from joining this one. Sorry, but it's only fair.
If you disagree with any of my rules I apologize, but as this is my Secret Santa it is my place to set whatever rules I deem necessary so I ask that you understand and respect that, specially if you are declined because you don't fit one of them. Thank you.
If you are interested just comment on this journal (YOU HAVE TO COMMENT, if you just fav the journal or such, I will not count you)
Signups are OPEN
P.S. If you would like to sign yourself up for the "makeup committee" to draw art for anyone who does not receive art from their Secret Santa in the end, please let me know. Hopefully it won't come to that but it's good to know up front who I can call on for that.
