Arelith Secret Santa Art Trade

Post by woodbreeze » Sun Oct 20, 2019 11:51 pm

hi guys, it's getting on to be that time of year again! HALLOWTHANKSMAS. You know what that means, right? Gifts and art trades!

Last year's holiday art trade was awesome, ran by Tomato. Check it out if you haven't. I would love to do something like that again this year, and maybe be ambitious enough to try and make it into an annual tradition if we can. Arelith has so many wonderful people that love art and drawing, and nothing really feels more heartwarming than getting a gift that someone else made all by themselves.

People of all artistic skill levels and styles are welcome. Digital, scanned, a painted picture, a complex one, a funny one, whatever it is! Don't be shy, everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. Art's a passion that everyone should feel free to enjoy.

The art trade itself will be anonymous, like any ordinary secret santa, but people are welcome to sign and post their stuff if they want. Artists will otherwise send their work to me, and I'll pass them along to the recipient anonymously.

Please fill out this form if you would like to be involved.

Make sure to leave a forum username so that I can contact you/send out details. (Make sure your PMs aren't full, either.)
Please also make your responses appropriate. No one is going to draw nsfw fanart of your character.

Sign-ups will close on November 1st.
I won't accept anyone after that point because I would like everyone to have their assignments as quickly as possible.

There will be PLENTY of time, the deadline for the art trade itself is December 15th. I'll be checking in a week beforehand to see how everything's going. Please make sure you have it started by then, otherwise I'll be assuming responsibility for drawing for the ones that bail out.

If anyone has questions, just ask me below or through PM.

I joined Arelith just barely after the deadline for the last secret Santa, and even though I have significantly reduced free time, I'd love to try and participate in this community event!

Join in then!!!! We've got seven lovely people so far, would love to see even more participating! everyone is welcome, so please don't be shy! <3

heck, I'm even happy to help people with their projects if they're worried about something. the last thing I want is someone to not join in because they beat themselves into backing out, I want everyone to feel welcomed and to ultimately have fun with this.

Sign ups are closing.

Santa's assistant WOKEPIGEON will be sending you all the details of your assignments, so I can be anonymous too! If you have any questions at all, either message her or me and we'll answer you quickly.

The deadline for your drawings is December 15th. I'll be checking in a week before to see where you all are! Have fun!!!!

All assignments have been sent out via Private Messaging on the forums. If you submitted an application to woodbreeze you should have received a PM with your beautiful (or maybe bacon-faced) subject's description. If you did not please PM either myself or woodbreeze as soon as possible.
Happy Holidays!

So- Uh. It's still Nov first for me, can I join? Unless trades have already been determined, in which case, I'll wait for next year.

we already sent out names, guys. I've been talking about the deadline for almost 2 weeks. :( I can't take anymore people. unless a third person shows up then I can sort of make it semi-secret for you three?


if there's enough interest maybe we can have another one in the summer. I know a lot of people have been asking if we can open it to things beyond drawing, to also include composing music, writing little stories, making mini games and stuff. if that's something that interests everyone, maybe we could see it happen.

Alright. I'll open the form again for last minute people, but keep in mind that you won't be paired with anyone already in this, since they already got their names. I'll keep it open for a few days. Please fill it out quickly so you guys can get your characters!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I'm sorry for double posting so much but this is it! The last call, for real! I'm going to close the form tomorrow when I wake up, and after that I won't be able to take anymore people. So if you want to sign up, do it now!

EDIT: It's closed. Everyone should have their names now, if not, message me ASAP.

We have the first gift completed of the season! The artist would like to remain anonymous for now, but I just wanna say that they did such a beautiful job on this piece. The painting is absolutely gorgeous, and I really love all the colors. Well done. <3

I present you Vaylani Moontear's gift by Anonymous:

here's a link in case of resizing on the forums.

Just a note. If you finish yours early and would like to submit it, you can. Send it either to myself or Wokepigeon, and tell us if you want us to post it anonymously to the thread, or just send it to the recipient. Or, if you don't care for being anonymous, just post it here. That being said, there's still plenty of time left, so no worries!

That is the most awesome Oscar I have ever seen. I positively love it. You've captured Oscar perfectly, even that grinning smirk as he gets into trouble. Amazingly done, thank you! :D

I hope you don't mind me using it as an avatar!

I'm still working on mine, you two are so amazingly quick!
