While staring at the calendar this afternoon, I noticed: 1) It is still November and 2) it is still 2020. If anyone is looking for a small project to devote a whole afternoon, or looking to receive a bit of holiday cheer in the form of original fan art for one of your characters, then Secret Santa may just be the ticket to adding more positivity to this year.
Usedbooks has gallantly taken the lead on Secret Santa for the last three years. There is usually a little more planning time to get this underway, but we might as well get the ball rolling for everyone and anyone who wants to participate in this year’s event.
Secret Santa is an annual art-trade where you sign-up in the forums and write a quick description of what you would like someone else to draw. The request can be as open-ended or as detailed and specific as you would like. Please keep in mind that there will only be a window of about two solid weeks after assignments are given, so keep requests semi-manageable.
How Secret Santa works:
~Reply to this thread with your gift request before the end of sign-up deadline.
~When sign-ups close, everyone is assigned a secret random assignment via PQ.
~You will have until Christmas (at least a few weeks lead time) to complete your assigned gift and present it on a gift thread (to be posted later).
~Any gifts not completed by the deadline will be reassigned to a volunteer on the DWC (dead weight committee).
~If you need more time, you will need to contact the organizer (me, I guess) before the deadline or be labeled as “deadweight” and have your assignment reassigned. (Deadweight will not be permitted to participate next year.)
Sign-ups: Now to December 7th
Assignments: December 8th
Gift Deadline: December 25th
DWC Assigned: December 26th
DWC Deadline: January 1st
To participate, reply here with your request (can be as specific or vague as you want). If asking for art of a particular character, links to good reference art/pages are helpful.
Also please let me know if You are interested in being part of the DWC.
Do you have any original art to contribute to our stock image database, announcements, community projects, ideas, news, or milestones to report? Please leave general comments below or send a PQ to kawaiidaigakusei. Email me at kawaiidaigakusei(at)gmail(dot)com.
