Title: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Deeox2 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.

1) I will be participating! Similar to GJ, with any luck I don't get boned, but I still had fun!
2) I would like either a pic of Yuki or Odessa.

3) I don't have a theme in mind, so do whatever! Surprise me~

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.

I'd be interested but I can't for the life of me make up my mind what I would want to request. lol.

Part of me wants to join in, but another part is hesitant.
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Geocorn on September 11, 2017, 08:46:01 pm
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.

Post by: Geocorn on September 11, 2017, 08:58:37 pm
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 :)
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Pal on September 11, 2017, 09:11:13 pm
I thought we were doing / would do both in one pool.

Post by: BlackStarLine on September 11, 2017, 11:20:28 pm
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.
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Deeox2 on September 18, 2017, 10:02:03 pm
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.
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Meliran on September 19, 2017, 12:33:34 am
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 ^_^

As long as I can give the person I get a game over steam, or something along those lines, I'll join. If it's strictly art, I'll have to decline participation.
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17

Unless you start your own Secret Santa, it's going to be art.

I understand you wanting to receive a Steam game, but kinda defeats the point of a gift exchange to say you don't want to give the other person what they want to receive :/

Anyway I wanna join I just can't make up my mind what kind of art I want.

Okay guys, I'm locking up and distributing PMs.

If you guys don't get a PM from me and this post has an edit saying I finished distributing PMs, then contact me immediately.

EDIT: Messages have been sent. Message me if you have any questions.

If we get ours early, do you want use to post them immediately or wait for Christmas?
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Deeox2 on September 24, 2017, 12:59:53 am
My idea was to wait for Christmas - since this is for Christmas, right? - but I don't really care.

You could post before, if you really wanted.
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Meliran on September 24, 2017, 01:07:16 am
I'd rather wait until Christmas. It's a present, after all. I won't be posting mine until the 24th, at least, and am hoping whoever got me doesn't either.
Title: Re: Art Secret Santa 2k17
Post by: Arraxis on September 24, 2017, 01:09:08 am
Then hopefully people don't notice it on the artist's dA :D. Not that mine's done or anything - no way in this amount of time - but I was just asking for future reference.

I specifically asked my artist to not post it publicly until the 24th. :)

Oh crap I thought I still had today to decide what I wanted.

Post by: Deeox2 on October 07, 2017, 03:08:53 am
Numerous people have PMed me with questions, and I would like to say that if you have additional ones, to PM me.

Also, if I did not respond to any of the previous PMs, PM me immediately saying this.

Cheers.

Since Dee is kind enough to run this event so I could participate, I think its only fair to give Dee a sentiment if thanks. Now I was going to post this when i post the other gift, but it was untimely posted online already sooo with further ado~

Merry Christmas ...er... Halloween Dee

Would you look at that, it's November! (I mean, it is in three hours for me but that's not the point.)

Just a reminder for everyone to make sure everything is good with their Secret Santa gifts. Best to sort it out November than December.

Since I was one of the last this time, I want to get a leg up on everyone else, and Dee's comment looks like permission to me! This one's for GJ!

Kanda-sama is the artist, and it is uploaded already, so that's another reason I decided to show it off. (https://kandasama.deviantart.com/art/Warrior-of-sky-718704276) I hope you like your Sylvia!

Welp...this was a surprise  seeing these posted now. (Although Arra's and GJ's was sadly spoiled for me due to being posted in DA ;_; Speaking of which Arra, youll have to tell me what you said to kandasama to get it done so fast. I have a pic I ordered from her in April amd its still not done XD).

Anyway, without further ado, I give you Duke's gift :

Wow, that is an incredibly awesome Yuki pic. I love the outfit you got for her! As for Kanda, well, I don't know? I just checked in politely a few days after each missed deadline, and I think Kanda also forgot to give me the finished version when they did finish. It did take a while for them to finish, definitely, but I did get it a few weeks before it was uploaded. I figured you saw it already, but yeah, no sense in complaining about it on the Cbox in case GJ started hunting :D

At last, the long awaited (and sometimes mysteriously vanishing!) final piece of the puzzle is here. And as it's just turned Christmas Eve here, I think it's appropriate, don't you? ^_^ Happy christmas guys, all the art looks great!

Well, I think that's it for the Hyperspace Crimbo. Thanks to everyone for trusting me with organizing this all. Hope to see y'all next year.
