Secret Santa 2014 Sign-Up - All PMs sent!

on: November 17, 2014, 03:19:45 pm
Thank you Gogglecrab for that beautiful banner :)

Secret Santa.. heard that one before

I hope you have! And if you haven't: you sign up for this, get a random partner assigned to you and will be making a gift (pixel art!) for them. In turn, somebody else (you don't know who) will be making a gift for you! Gifts will be revealed on Christmas.

Take a look at previous years' Secret Santa here: 2013 - 2012 - 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, you won't be 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 as 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; not in the thread here.
  • Elk, Letmethink, Argyle, Knick1225 and Dragonmarx may NOT participate this year because they failed to submit a gift on time last year. Do not let this be you!

Important Dates
  • November 17th~24th - Sign-ups in this period only!
  • November 25th - A PM with your partner's name will be sent out to you; no tellin'!
  • November 26th~December 20th - Plenty pixellin' time, start early! This is new. Let's try it. You get less time, but.. read below.
  • December 21st - Last day to send in your gift!
  • December 22nd~December 24th - Very last chance! If you have failed to send in your gift before this timespan, you will not be able to participate next year, but you won't get a strike.
  • December 25th - Grand unveiling! If you still haven't sent in your gift by now, you will receive a strike.

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 overly complicate 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 19th is the deadline, but submissions will be accepted from the time you receive your partner's name via PM, up until the 19th (24th if you're late, but please read above for consequences if you do that). 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 get a strike?
-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. Just PM it along with your gift and I'll make sure our elves will wrap your gift with it.



Read everything? Great! If you sign up below before the 25th Nov you'll be added to this list (allowing ~24hrs for updates). Those who've submitted gifts will get a little :santastic: next to 'em, also doubtless a pleasant seasonal sense of good-will.

I don't think I've ever done one of these. Sure, sign me up.

I like a LOT of stuff, so uh, random list of stuff that pops in my head:
- Ants
- Castle of the Winds
- Dune
- Leonardo Da Vinci
- Roombas (or any household robot)
- Ridiculously over the top communists

Dislikes:
Anything that doesn't help make the world feel a special place (potted plants, television programs and the color beige come to mind). I'm a unique little snowflake, so I dislike anything that can't be described as ridiculous, zany or over the top.

Good lord I haven't been on here in forever!  I'd love to do Secret Santa this year however.

I like:
- Hip-hop/Rap
 *MF DOOM, Specifics, Nujabes to name a few
- High Fantasy
 *Particularly Dark Souls type stuff, not too grounded with typical fantasy elves and trolls and whatnot
- Octopi/Squids
- Nintendo
 *Pikmin, Earthbound, Mario, Zelda (Wind Waker mostly)
- Pastries
- Robots
- Art
 *Dave Cooper, Cory Loftis, Garret Hanna, Akira Toriyama are all artists I'm a fan of, but this is such a broad term you can get as creative with it as you want!

Not a big fan of:
anime
 *Unless it's Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z

Really looking forward to getting this done!

Reporting for yearly Secret Santa Duty.

To see what you like you have to first see what other dislike. Let's see...
> -blood/gore
Sounds good.
> Overtly sexualized anime
Fuck yeah! Even better!

Other than that, I like really epic stuff, like a revolution, a necromancer taking over a planet, miles large structures being constructed, a world changing technology, etc, etc... or in a smaller scale, like a magic ritual, a city of beast humans or a god speaking to a believer/opposer.

Being playful with light/colors/shadows in art is also really cool. Illuminating crystals, weeds, mosses, signs, humans, whatever you can think of.

And lastly I like alternative cultures, Japanese civil war era, Ancient China, Ancient India, Atztecs, Mayan, Indians, etc.

There is nothing I dislike in particular.

Oooh! Never heard of this before. I just jumped onto this forum from PixelJoint to do this.

I want a picture of a battle unfolding while watching it high from above, and seeing all the tiny tanks shoot at each other.

Once more, into the breach!

My preferences:
Giant mechas. Gundam-ish super robot designs are fine, as are more realistic industrial-looking machines of war.
Knights! Detailed, shiny plate armor, preferably more fantastic and less realistic. (No boobplate though please. Female armor ought to be as decent as a male's armor would be.)
Pokemon-like 'upgrade paths' for a character design.
Fantastic landscapes- scifi or fantasy.
Interesting skyscapes at any time of day. Midday, sunset, starscapes at night, whatever.
Portraits/full-body sprites.
Organic designs- no cubism plz
Painterly techniques, with a focus on cluster technique, rather than fill-in-the-lineart works.
Videogame mockups, with a slight preference for top-down tactical stuff.

Above all else, I want to see pieces of art which would stand on their own merits, rather than attempting to smash every single thing I listed above into a single picture for the lolz. Make something that you would think is cool!

Eh... I guess I'll try to participate.
(Hopefully some personal issues won't prevent me from doing some art :( I'd hate to disappoint)

Like:
- Original takes on monsters (like duck-based harpies, octomaids, that kind of stuff)
- Original creepy stuff (horrorish weird stuff that makes you uneasy; I kinda like the latest Silent Hill concept trailer for the general atmosphere, for example)
- Bouncy animations
- Lamias
- Colorful art
- Butts (girl's; and eh, don't judge me, you're the ones asking for what I like)
- Weird, deep, meaningful and unusual art (strong emotion / trying to convey a message in a non-obvious way) (gosh, I'm not helping am I?)
- Anything I could eventually have printed, that would be nice!

Dislike:
- Non-artistic nudity
- Caricatures
- Over-stylised art
- Fanart
- Retake/remake of existing art


Hopefully that should give a couple ideas while keeping stuff original and surprisy!

Quote from last year:
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:
