Secret Santa Sign-Up 2012 - Finished!

on: November 17, 2012, 08:03:12 pm
Go tell it on the mountain, deck the halls with boughs of holly: it's Santa time!

So what is this Secret Santa stuff anyway?

Everyone involved both gives and receives a gift. Fun! Partners are randomly assigned, and the identity of everyone's benefactor remains a secret until a dramatic reveal on December 24th. Intrigue! Naturally the gifts involved here are pixel art  ;D.

Take a look at previous years' Secret Santa here: 2011 - 2010 - 2009



Taking Part
  • To join this year's Secret Santa post here so I know you want to participate ('count me in' or similar). Please only sign up if you're sure that you'll be to able to complete your gift There are grave consequences for reneging! Specifically, being temporarily banned and not being able to participate in next year's Secret Santa.
  • Double check the information here, specifically the important dates below, so you know to plan in advance if you'll be unable to submit before the deadline.
  • Provide some indication of your likes/dislikes: this is important! you can be very specific or broad as you like, but be aware this is all your Santa has to go by if they don't know you!
  • You'll receive your partner's name via private message (PM), so make sure to check 'em!
  • When you've finished your gift, send it to me by PM also; not in the thread here.
  • Calx, darkgamer, Elk, FierceDeity, Gamecid, Nicko, Partack and Terley may NOT participate this year because they failed to submit a gift last year. Do not let this be you!

Important Dates
  • November 17th~23th - Sign-ups in this period only!
  • November 24th - A PM with your partner's name will be sent out to you, no tellin'!
  • November 25th~December 22nd – Plenty pixellin' time, start early!
  • December 23rd - Very last day to send in your gift!
  • December 24th - Grand unveiling!

PM me if you're confused about anything or have any questions to ask after consulting the FAQ below.



FAQ

What kind of gift do I make?
-Anything you want, just so long as it involves pixel art! Try to tailor it to your partners listed interests, or to them/their work if you're familiar anyway, but any subject you think will be well received is fair game. You can make them a mockup, animations, sprites, textured low poly models; you name it! If you're worried about time, don't overcomplicate things, relax and do what you do best too, for a great present.

But I'm quite likely to be embroiled in some sort of festive revelry around the end of December; can I still take part?
-You can send your gift in as early as you like! The 23rd is the deadline, but submissions will be accepted from the time you receive your partner's name via PM, up until the 23rd. It's not fun to try and rush this stuff leading up to Christmas, getting it done with time to spare is highly recommended ;)

I'm not going to manage finishing my present in time, will I still be banned?
-WIPs will be OK temporarily, but don't let it come to that, or you will get a strike! It's better to have your WIP under the tree than nothing, but please finish afterwards to avoid untold baroque consequences, If you know you won't be able to finish, for whatever reason, let me know ASAP so that something else can be sorted out for your partner.

I think making a present for so-and-so would be really fun, I wish I was their Santa!
-If you finish your present early, you're more than welcome to make gifts for multiple people. Spread the holiday cheer! Just please concentrate on your partner first :y:.



Gift Wrap!



When you send in your gift (ie. not in the comments here) designate one of these wrappings (A1, B5, etc.) or else it'll be assigned randomly. This gift wrapping is what will be displayed on the 24th linking directly to the gift you made.

Alternatively: for mad bonus props, you can provide a custom wrapping along with your gift; in this way you can have a bit of fun teasing the shape, colour, subject matter etc. within. Posting custom wrappings in the comments is encouraged (without revealing it's intended recipient), but make sure to PM it along with your gift as well, or it may not get used.



Read everything? Great! If you sign up below before the 24th Nov you'll be added to this list (allowing ~24hrs for updates) Those who've submitted gifts will get a little Santa next to 'em, also doubtless a pleasant seasonal sense of good-will.

Well, well, well.. I'm in!

I absolutely love anything related to anime; besides that, I also especially like crows, cats and landscapes. And restricted palettes! But pretty much everything else works as well.

Sign me up!

Lets see, I like under water stuffs like the little mermaid or xcom terror from the deep. Movies from the 80's and early 90's  like Short Circuit, Robocop, Goonies, Twister to name a few. I like cute things and dark scary things. I love zombie related stuffs (walking dead and zombie land) I'll take pretty much anything as long as its pixels, just have fun with it!

Aw yeah, let's do this! ;D

I really like classic literature, mythology and philosophy. Epics like The Oddysey, the Epic of Gilgamesh, stories from the Metamorphoses (Ovid), or the Nibelungenlied and things of that nature; love that stuff! Also, I'm very fond of all kinds of animals, but especially insects and odd and/or cute birds. Different species of insects often fall into an extremely specific, isolated niche in the ecosystem. Their resulting eccentric and complex life cycles are a constanst source of inspiration to me. For birds, I love the bright and colourful, and majestic plumes or crests.

As for pop culture-stuff, I'm very big on games, and have been since a very young age. Old Nintendo-related stuff is a safe bet, be it Zeldas (favourites are Majora's Mask and Wind Waker), Marios or Metroids etc. Also Pokémon, ha! Love me some shmups, too. With lots of bullets, lasers and aircrafts, or mechs and spaceships (Cave, Raizing and Irem are the greats!). Recently though, I've been very into Shin Megami Tensei-games, favourites being the Digital Devil Saga and Persona 4 (fave character: Kanji! Really though, I like them all). Fighting games are sweet too. I'm a fan of the King of Fighters-games (Vanessa is the most badass woman in any fighting game I've seen - possibly only outmatched by Baiken from Guilty Gear!). In Street Fighter 2 and 4 I main as Blanka. 3rd Strike is great too!

Well, that should be plenty to pick and seek inspiration from! ;)

Now I'm really looking forward to creating something cool to give to YOU, whoever you might be! 8)

I signed up specifically to get in on this. Should be fun!

I really like mechas, super robots, pilotable humanoid techno-knights of the future, etc. Some specific series which I think have REALLY cool designs are Gurren Lagann, Five Star Stories, Linebarrels of Iron, Zone of the Enders, and Star Driver. One of my favorite motifs is that of mechanical versus organic designs- I love seeing the two interplay with mechanical traits and organic traits fusing, or mechanical designs emulating organic shapes and styles. My preference for character design definitely trends towards the unrealistic or fantastical, favoring more anime-esque designs over realistic or historically accurate equipment. Lots of glowy stuff, too.

Mockups are cool. Boss battle scenes are even cooler. I'm a big fan of strategy games, puzzle games, and platformers- games where I don't have to keep moving, where there's relatively little pressure. (Competitive games like COD aren't my thing, they don't let me relax and unwind.)

I'm in,

To whomever gets to pick me, draw whatever you feel like drawing, if possible draw something you haven't drawn before or attempt an approach you haven't attempted before, just make sure its not isometric, as I have an unfounded repulsion against that. On the other hand if you were to draw something isometric precisely for that reason, I would probably just look at it and smile or downright laugh wholeheartedly .So I guess that means anything goes. It is mandatory to have fun in the process though! :lol:

I'm not particularly active here but seeing as I haven't done a secret santa since 2009 and I would actually like to receive sooomething this very-likely-to-be-yet-another-non-christmas I'll sign up.

Likes:
The old machines Amstrad CPC, Amiga and NES
various PlayStation game series (Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, inFamous, God of War, Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper and the like)
Doctor Who (mainly 3rd, 5th, 11th Doctor eras)
Karen Gillan
Firefly (and Serenity of course)
Transformers (just the movie designs and the old Marvel UK comic stories)
Musicians such as Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Kate Bush, Queen (when Freddie was still alive)
ThunderCats (original 80's version)
Sting (the facepainted WCW/TNA wrestler, not the musician nor the pointy butt of a bee/wasp)
Many 80's movies (RoboCop, The Terminator, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, most Arnold Schwarzenegger movies of that time and such)
Street Fighter II/IV/Alpha3
Batman (especially Nolan/Bale movies)
Superman (especially Christopher Reeve)
Double Dragon Neon (oh, the amount of times I've sung along to Skullmageddon's end song)
Turrican II on Amiga
The Warriors (game and movie)
The Bixby/Ferrigno Incredible Hulk tv series
The Simpsons
DC Animated Universe shows
Classic westerns (Once Upon a Time in the West, also almost anything starring John Wayne or directed by John Ford)
Theatre

Dislikes: Post-SNES Nintendo, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, majority of FPSs, RPGs, japanese character design (specifically the fashion disaster type with ridiculous hair and clothes totally unsuitable for the many battles they have), overused palettes that aren't related to the actual limited palettes of a real computer or console, chart music, Cave Story style sprites, pretentious 'arty' games, WWE, movies starring Adam Sandler, Jack Black or Will Ferrell, Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory, Transformers Animated, low poly 3D, drab palettes

yes i'm a bit picky...    Anyways I put a lot of stuff there cos the last time I did it I had to a piece for someone I had absolutely no idea what any of their interests actually meant (quite arty intellectual stuff I think) and I ended up doing a generic christmassy image which I think they liked but I was disappointed in myself that I couldn't do something more tailor-made for their tastes so hopefully the person who has to do one for me has got loads to pick from up there.

I shush now.

I suppose I will sign up.

I like picture wars, propaganda, nature, Salvador Dali, horrific monsters chillin' with little girls, video games, rustic outdoors, mountains, knives, dogs, wilderness survival, rocks, guns, explosions, and things like tanks and mechs.

I recall that we got a quick little PM-notification by mail for last years Secret Santa. You're not sending one out this year? It's good for reminding members who are not necessarily active on the forums around this time, but would still like to partake in this particular activity. It worked out okay last time, right?

PM invite++.

It's been a while I'm not doing much PA, so I'm definitely participating!

Hard to say what I like... let's see if I can put down a short list:

Strange and weird things, the moon, insects, animals, robots, computers and games, ancient mythology, ancient iconographic art (south American and in particular Atzec, Greek, Babylonian, Egyptian, Chinese and Japanese), modern art (cubism, futurism and street art), art as a basic form of expression of oneself (as could be music, painting/drawing, etc.), physic and math, love and living, drawings and in particular portraits, water and underwater creatures.

looking forward it :)

I'd be happy to join in :) I'm more active on other forums, (as you can probably tell by my post count) but something like this might be fun!

I like cats, crows, videogames (minecraft, gw2, retro stuff), techie stuff, cute things, robots, music, post apocalyptic, and whatever else you think a web dev girl in her late teens would like. I would prefer if it didn't have a christmas theme to it  :D

Hello there,

The names Beetlebear and I work on video games! I'm the main artist for a game called Star Made right now.

I love star wars, space stuff, machines and abstract art.

I'm especially fond of low color counts and animations that give a lot of impact in only a few frames.

So 'count me in'.

I've been pixeling for just around 20 years now so feel free to pair me up with just about anyone.

Lots of love <3

oki, sign me up.

So I like dark fantasy stuff, greek mythology, ancient warfare, original creatures, ghosts, demons, angels, atmospheric stuff, realism, light/color effects, strong emotions (fear, desperation, horror, pain, anger)

I don't like: cute stuff, because I am a grumpy old cat.

PS: I also like bloodshed, apocalypse and massacre.
PPS: Boobies combined with any of the other topics are good too.

I'm in! I'm in! (Okay, barring anything in my personal life that is. But, still planning to be in!)

I've really been into Spaceships lately so I'll just go with that. I do like cute things as well though. Nothing not safe for work please. If you wouldn't show it to your gradeschooler then don't show it to me.

Excited to see what comes of this!

I'm in.

I like music, drumming, nature, fire, and winter.

And Christmas cookies.
But truthfully, if there's something you're burning to draw, I'd prefer that! I love creativity!
Can't wait. Happy holidays!

IN!

I like flamboyant half-human-half-somethingelses with fish in their hair. I like boardgames, the unusual, and making music using crude means. I like nice pixels.
If none of this is your thing, I like most of everything else.

dislike: fan art

Hello! I would love to be a part of this.
Can't wait to start pixeling in a week. Specially since a bunch of those names on the list are familiar.  :)

So here are a few of my likes: Landscapes, trees, futuristic stuff (hey who doesn't love this?), winter, playing acoustic guitar, turn based rpgs, nintendo stuff, eye-glasses (kinda weird...), but whatevers cool really. Let your creativity run free, I guess.

its been so long since i ever dare to post on pixelation. always wondered why I never tried to join the secret santas. though it seems i'm more interested in doing something for someone rather than for getting something.

I basically love scifi. giant, stylized space fighting robots are my thing(Gundams and Zakus, for example), but also i'm fond of Shoot 'em Ups, Arcades, action movies and all those things that make you feel alive. cool radical stuff in general is a-ok in my book.

This is honestly my favorite thing about Christmas.

For some yuletide revelers,
presents and mistletoe are where they find their drive.
For me and my family,
we're driven to Pixelation, gleefully a-mashing F5.

I'm in!

Dear [SANTA AGENT NAME HERE]

I'd be honored to receive a pixel gift that is a reflection of what YOU like and would be something that you would take joy in creating. This is you taking your time to make a surprise for me, so I don't want my potential Santa to feel chained to creating something they dislike or is in some style or format that they will dread/not be able to give their all to. I just ask that you put the same care and effort into it as a piece you strongly wanted to do for your own personal growth and expression.

Note, the list that follows is all over the place, I know. I just want these things to serve as separate ideas or themes to consider exploring for any potentially indecisive Santa. Generic 'I will love whatever I get' speach aside, here are some things I like to serve as a little inspiration:

  • Animation, animation, animation! Characters in particular.
  • Dinosaurs
  • I love and appreciate things that are beautifully designed and quality art that are, at the same time, funny.
  • Curvy womens (Grossly skinny supermodel-proportioned girls are just off-putting to me.)
    • Most any females featured in Big Brother's drawings meet the posterior proportional standards of curvines that I'm getting at.
  • Skateboarding
  • I am always taken in by good background art. Environments are one of my weaker points as an artist, so I'll stare in wonderment at a well-rendered scene for hours.
    • Specifically inspired and appreciative of the pixel pushing BG styles of Vierbit, DarkFalzX, Henk Nieborg, and goddamn... I spent hours running around in Aliens Infestation DS just ogling the gorgeous backgrounds Helm, Ptoing, and Vedsten filled that game up with.
  • Metalocalypse
  • Game of Thrones
  • Things so ridiculous that their hilarity ascends into awesomeness.
    • To illustrate what I mean, I have shirts and computer backgrounds on rotation of things like an amazon spear-holding babe bursting out of a wave riding on a chrome robotic shark, or a T-Rex using a computer with 3D glasses. Artists in the 80s had a real knack for generating art that tried far too hard to look totally rad, and it makes me laugh.
  • Comic Book art
  • Every person in the world has mentioned robots, steampunk, and kick ass sci-fi stuff. But it's cool and I can't say I don't like that stuff too!

Dislikes:
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Pickles
  • Generally, I dislike anime unless it serves a style purpose or is parodying it.

Whatever you make, if it's something you are proud of having made, it will forever be our anonymous secret santa love child that will live on immortally in every harddrive I'll own for the rest of my life. No pressure.[/list]

I like to participate aswell

What I like

I like cartoony/cute things and high fantasy including spaceships&stuff(not just medieval fantasy), I like landscape/stars aswell, doesn't have to be animated or still picture so do whatever you would like, also females in panties.

What I don't like

I don't really hate things except mosquitos but I don't like ugly designs, like I said I like cartoony&cute things, I think even the most horrifying thing should look somehow appealing, I don't really hate generic designs but if I need to give a name I don't like unappealing and generic looking characters like sweet tooth, I'm sorry if you are a sweet tooth fan.

I'm in this year as well!

I like and enjoy Robots (though not transformers), Monsters, mockups, Cats, Mechanical things.

Updating with some additional info: I like skulls and skeletons (but not in a biker t-shirt kind of way) I like tight pixelling and unique ideas!

PM recieved, so count me in too!

I like...
  • Dystopian, sci-fi, supernatural, and victorian worlds.
  • Sidescrollers, 1:1 isometric perspective (like in Boktai), and RPGs.
  • Manga and anime.
  • Weapons, especially the ball and chain weapon.
  • Norse mythology and vikings.
  • Machines, especially if they are industrial junkers.
  • NES, SNES, N64, GB, GBC, and GBA.
  • Character portraits, mock-ups, funny animations, and horrific battle scenes.
  • Scarves, capes, cravats, and hoods.

But hey, anything works! ;)

I'm in!

Draw: The Catastropillar!





And by draw I mean pixel.

I also like Franz Kafka, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and other dude/ttes from around that time. So, in one word: Science fiction is cool.

I'll join in as well please.  :)

What I love to see in pixel art:
  • Mockups (I love RPG towns in particular)
  • NES/GBC/SNES/GBA style
  • Animation! :D
  • Steampunk and Victorian aesthetics
  • Limited/creative colour palettes

What I am less partial to:
  • Micro-pixel art (with large objects or characters represented by less than 8x8)
  • Orcs and goblins
  • Cyberpunk

All in all I'd be happy with anything you'd enjoy making though.
Can't wait until Xmas :)

In the nick of time, Person!

Sign-ups are now finished, and that makes 65 Santas! Well met Pixelation :y:. Look out for a PM from Crow with your partner's name later today!

I'm leaving the thread open for comment, but for those that haven't spoken up, the deadline's past, sorry.

Any questions regarding the event and/or your partner, send me or Facet a PM. Happy pixeling, and don't be late for Christmas :)

Ah, my bad; that was done in a hurry. Was intended as 'finished on the 24th', or 'before the the PMs get sent'

Surely though, if you'd read the thread beforehand, there's no problem?

You guys should just let people that didn't make the sign up be able to make and deliver gifts, but they can't can't be assigned someone to give a gift to, and those gifts can be given to those that didn't receive a gift at the end or randomly given.

Just to clarify here, the necessity of the organisation; the allocation of partners, times & dates etc. is motivation and inclusion; everyone is guaranteed a personalised gift that commits to making one.

There is absolutely nothing stopping anyone else making additional art to share, which I'll try to accommodate. There is no monopoly on goodwill here!

Just to verify: a low-poly 3d model/scene would be okay as well, correct? Or would that be considered to be "exotic"?

I'd wager it would be fine and dandy if you're aware of the person you're making the 3D lowpoly gift for likes that kind of stuff. Just be aware that I saw at least one person that said they did not like lowpoly. Generally, I'd say at the very least try to make something that your recipient hasn't listed as a dislike, unless it's being lightheartedly spiteful for the sake of a joke they'd understand.  :P

Also, all the people bummed that they missed signups that still have the interest to participate - it wouldn't hurt to post your wish list anyway and pick a person you would want to make a gift for (keep it a secret though) and who knows, maybe somebody will finish their gift and have the kindness to surprise you with something? It might not be a sovereign match made in the eyes of the almighty randomized pairing algorithm secret santa software Crow uses, but at least you still get to join in on the gift exchange and make somebody else totally surprised and happy.

Good good, PM me if you want it put up with the others.

No-one need wager on low-poly, it's specifically mentioned as kosher in the FAQ, but I'd rather latecomers didn't post up wishlists because there's likely to be confusion and disappointments that way.

Hmm, I think I've invested at least 15-20 hours into my project by now. Been working on it over the last few days in 2-3 hour chunks.

I'm starting to get tired of the piece and cutting some corners, and I can tell. Best finish it quickly before my quality collapses even further.

Finished both this and the actual secret santa piece yesterday so now looking forward to seeing all the awesome gifts from everyone.  And yeah that there's a rare bit of isometric work from me.  Sorry I copied the basic shape of the bow from the default gift boxes cos it's a real pain in the butt shape to pixel...

I'm living in Paris, what's the very last time to send the gift ?
I'm afraid of missing the deadline because of a timezone issue.
Can I work on it all day long the 23rd ? It's a pretty big piece and the animation still need to be refined.

Actually, I was just joking. (poking fun at myself, because one of the previous years I didn't make it.) I've already submitted.

Sad to hear about Tomic though; now I feel terrible. I'm sure it would have been great. (And will be)  :y:

You can send in a WIP, then finish things afterwards (as soon as possible :mean:).


I can arrange a guillotine if you want.

I'd like that.


Also, everyone, keep in mind to send your gifts to Facet, not me.

Love that this is still being put together every year. It's currently the only thing I do to make
sure my skills don't completely rust. Always a joy. Can't wait to see what everyone's made.

Whoa, a whole lot of gifts coming in right at the last minute :P

 It'll take a little while to organise yet , there's a little flexibility there. Only 12 not in atm and I'll set to badgering them after putting the post up, tons of wonderful stuff!

I think the GMT thing may have caught people off guard. I just happened to open this thread and see someone mention GMT, and notice it was 11:50pm at the top.

I'd rather make allowances for time differences so no-one feels hard done by, no hard feelings from me unless they don't actually appear in due course.
