Art Secret Santa 2k17
« on: September 09, 2017, 11:53:26 pm »
Hey all, let's just get this Secret Santa ball rolling.

Here's the info from last year, because it's mostly all the same.

Greetings ~

Tis that time of year again, so you know what that means, festive cheer to our fellow forumites! Now I know some participated in a physical Secret Santa last year, but I felt that having things sent via snail mail left a lot of people unable to participate. So one might ask, how can I do something constructive and thoughtful for a gift instead of just buying a game on someones Steam wishlist? The answer is simple....an art commission. *shoots himself up to sustain his addiction* The thought goes that since rpgs and VNs are very character centric, perhaps people will enjoy this.

Heres how it works, from now until DEC 12, reply to this thread with:
1) Your intent to participate
2) Preference of an game, waifu, or original character to have art commissioned of them (reference pics help)
3) Any particular theme you'd enjoy

From the 10th and onward, Ill PM people with who they are to get art for. The point being, that a surprise piece of art (character, artist, theme, etc) will be something someone enjoys.

Artists can be found on Deviantart, Pixiv, or whever youd like. As for a price range, please, no one spend more than 50 USD.

From Dec 24 an onward (or such as when the art is completed), simply post the pictures to the thread and merriment abound. Sound easy?

Any additional questions, please PM yours truly. 8)

So what's different?

Well, for one, we're starting earlier, so that means we're going to put the deadline for signups earlier. That'll be SEPT 23, so two weeks from the current date (unless something changes). On this date, I'll send out who everyone will be getting art for. Make sure to post references for your requests!

The post date will be the same, DEC 24, unless something happens.

Anyway, message me any questions you might have. Also please don't spend multiple pages debating chainmail bikinis here.

1.) Imma do the thing. Hopefully I don't get stuck in art limbo for 6 months again.

2.) Well, it's been a year, let's update that Pathfinder Sylvia art some. Black dragon wings, horns, and tail added on this time. Last year's picture as a reminder: http://i.imgur.com/jEOozRc.jpg

Better reference picture since the light in that last one messes with the colors. http://i.imgur.com/6Uml2Ex.png

3.) Iunno. Something cool/awesome.

2) I would like either a pic of Yuki or Odessa.

1)You know Im down for it - my last arting of the year!

As for the details for whomever gets me:

2) Kurumi! [No surprise] 8)  However, alternatively if someone doesnt want to go that route - moar usagi Jynx art would be well received ^^  Ill send a PM of references to our jolly-prude Canadian elf  after signups for whomever so desires.

3) Hanboks (Traditional Korean dress) in a winter/holiday setting.

1. Hey, I'm in.

2. Character: Emma
Nationality: Swedish
Physical Description: Hair in combined braids, as in http://barefootblond.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/stephaniesunderlandphotography-67.jpg . Blond, blue eyes (typical Scandinavian~). Paleish skin. Freckles - and lots of them all over the body. B-cup breasts, standard woman proportions.
Clothing: Jeans and a cap-sleep shirt with a butterfly on it ( https://i.pinimg.com/236x/67/9f/07/679f07706f98f10fa651643206d51168.jpg ) Or something that a girl who would wear that would wear.
Character Description: She's a 16-year old who was kidnapped, tortured, and mutated so that her lungs convert oxygen into magic instead of their natural function. As such, she doesn't need to breathe unless she wants to use magic, but she has to take a pill every 8 hours to replenish the oxygen in her bloodstream.

3. Anything's cool so long as it's set in or near Stockholm, Sweden and fits the character.

Part of me wants to join in, but another part is hesitant.

Yeah I was hoping we'd go back to something more traditional, but I'll participate in whatever now that I have the financial means to do so.

You're welcome to do a traditional Secret Santa Geo, but I figured thus format is easier due to folks hesitant about providing personal information such as addresses online. Plus, 'ideally' gifts transmitted electronically are at least theoretically easier for folks to participate in.

We're not that big of a community to have two different activities. I'd rather have one thing going at a time so that there can be as many of us in the same pool, helps maintain the surprise :)

I thought we were doing / would do both in one pool.

Honestly, having the original secret santa as an alternative would be good for those that don't tend to do arty type things (I.e me). But hey, it's just a thought.

Often in the commbox I asked for people to discuss the type of Secret Santa they wished to run but because no one came to a final decision, we defaulted to last year's.

I am only the person who runs it. I really don't care what it is we do, but it's too late now.

We just have those who want to participate participate. That's just how it works. I just hope everyone who does participate is respectful of other people's efforts/expenses.

At long last (and just in time!) I finally sorta know what I think would be cool~

1)Yup! Count me in :D

2) Catgirl. Andromeda. :P

3) Surprise me with a theme! Nothing explicit/lewd of course, but otherwise see if you can think of something interesting~ if not, any cat-andro is good ^_^

I knew all that waddling and falling around was a bluff|woolyshambler: frankly i'm surprised the genetically enhanced mutant penguins hadn't shown up sooner. you could say i've been expecting them. |GreyCat: duke could be better at spelling, but he chooses instead to spend his time focusing on arse|The Meta concedes Penguins are better|Deeox2: Looked like the commbox collectively lost it. Nice.|Jynx: Yandere Duke scares me... A lot.|Deeox2: Hey. It ain't lewd. I'm just waiting for Duke to kiss me|Elvis Strunk: Silly Duke. I am the woman, you are the penguin.
