Secret Santa 2015 Sign-Up - ALL PMs SENT

on: November 15, 2015, 09:06:34 am
SantA's reindeer are gorging on animal protein and hitting the gym in earnest. But it is not Christmas they are prepping for... no, it's the...


10th ANNUAL
PIXELATION SECRET SANTA!
With every pixel weighing in at 1kg, these reindeer are in for the haul of their lives!

^Retweet this tweet to spread the cheer!^

You don't know what's going on? Here it is: You sign up for this, get a random partner assigned to you, and you make a pixel art gift 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 a previous year's Secret Santa here: 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011 - 2010 - 2009 - 2008 - 2007 - 2006 - 2005



Taking Part
  • Only sign up if you're sure that you'll be to able to complete your gift, by checking the dates below. If you don't complete your gift you'll be banned from next year's Secret Santa and make someone very sad. :'(
  • 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).
  • When you've finished your gift, send it to me by PM; not in the thread here. That would not be secret. :P
  • Blue, Dokozai, FrostPumpkin, and SwapBrain may NOT participate this year because they failed to submit a gift on time last year. Do not let this be you! >:D
  • Here's a sample post if you are somehow still lost. ::) You can format however you want, however please include "I'm in!" or something similar in your post.
    Quote from:  mr example
    Count me in!
    I like:
    Samurai Swords, Guns, Men with large forearms (haha), George Clooney (haha), Birds, Teeth, Low poly
    I do NOT like:
    Tigers, Turtles, Trees, Pokemon, Spiders(really i do not, it is bad)
    Thanks! again no spiders

Important Dates
  • November 15th~25th - Sign-ups in these 10 days only!
  • November 26th - A PM with your partner's name will be sent out to you; keep it a secret and start early!
  • November 27th~December 21st - You have about one month to make a beautiful pixel present!
  • 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 or during this timespan, you will not be able to participate next year, but you won't get a strike.
  • December 25th - PRESENTS!!!!
PM me if you're confused about anything or have any questions to ask after consulting the FAQ below.



SantA's Help desk

What kind of gift do I make?
-Anything you want, just so long as it involves pixel art. Tailor it to your partner's listed interests, or towards them and their work if you are familiar. Any subject you think will be well received is fair game. You can make them a mockup, animation, 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.

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 21st is the deadline, but submissions will be accepted from the time you receive your partner's name via PM, up until the 21st. 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... It's better to have your WIP under the tree than nothing, but please finish quickly afterwards to avoid 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 me the PM with your gift, designate one of these wrappings (A1, B5, etc.) This gift wrapping is what your Secret Santa will click on under the tree to receive your gift.

Alternatively: Make a custom wrapping for your gift; in this way you can have a bit of fun teasing the contents within. Just PM it along with your gift. Here are a few from previous years... with a link to their gifts, for ideas. (you can't use these! come up with your own!)

count me in

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:

  • Or if you had something else in mind, surprise me. The above points are for inspiration, they aren't demands.

There's nothing I categorically dislike enough to bother listing. If something is well made, its well made.

I got here by email that said about "New Personal Message: Pixelation: Secret Santa 2015". Will I get a gift? Anyway,
I want to be in!
I like: color palettes, arts related to Super Mario Bros series or Tetris
I don't like: arts related to 3d games (not 2.5d)
I'm going to get the gift, not making it... unless I have to

Reporting for duty?

Likes:

-Bats
-Lamprey
-Sea creatures in general
-The Portugese man-of-war
-Anomalocaridids
-Spiders
-Baroque and Rococo
-Pipe organs
-Art Nouveau (NOT Art Deco!)
-Space ships with weird moving parts or tranformations for no apparent reason.

Dislikes:

-Spiderwebs
-When half of something cilindrical is mirrored so the lighting doesn't make any sense
-Art Deco
-Brutalism
-internet memes
-Pop culture references

Also:

-Regardless of any like/dislikes you may or may not be using in your gift, I prefer a display of skill or "original" ideas/designs (whatever that means anymore) to appeals to emotion or other vagueness that modern art tends to try.

-If you feel like doing a mockup, but have difficulty coming up with anything: I've been somewhat obsessed with Mega Man lately,although I wouldn't want you to just do something Mega Man. I feel that would be too easy. You're free to make any other type of mockup too though.:)

I hope that's not too much or overly complicated. Sorry if it is.

I made a Pixelation account just to participate in this hello!

Likes: female characters, top heavy designs, simplistic outfits, well-done dither gradients, Undertale, visual puns, body horror/eldritch abominations
Dislikes: trauma to the eyes/fingers/feet (please no!), gore (usually this can be negotiated, but since we aren't going to be communicating it'd be better to just keep out of showing internal organs and blood in general???)
You're lovely! :)

    - electro-industrial and metal music
    - epic landscapes & backgrounds

    I regret not having participated in the previous years, so this time I'm in!

    My order is: Do whatever you want. :)
    However, if you're anything like me, you don't know what you want. So here are some really unimportant and random things you can use as guidelines.

    I like:
    - Nature. (Including but not limited to the entire Universe.)
    - Organisms. (Any, really. From fennecs to Dictyostelium discoideums to potatoes. Dragons also count. Humans are usually pretty boring, though.)
    - Dystopias.
    - Smoooth animations. (Who doesn't?)
    - Experimenting with concepts, styles, etc.
    - Things that make you think and/or want to kill yourself. (Like philosophy in general.)
    - Being surprised.
    - Knowing you enjoyed doing it :)

    I don't like/care about:
    - Artificial landscapes.
    - Fanaticism in general. (Religion, money, cars, sports, women, etc.)
    - "Nerd culture", animes, memes, movies, games....
    - Most of the things common sense dictates as disgusting or repulsive. (Except spiders et al. They're super cool.)
    - Some pixel art styles: isometric, "modern", extremely old. (All of them with some exceptions.)
    - Christmas. (Is that too hypocritical?)

    Again, these are pretty unimportant and random, so don't stick yourself too much to them if you don't feel like it. Just challenge yourself and have fun!

    I'm totally in, again.

    This time I'll specifically ask for a Star Wars related scene, but don't limit yourself to movies, anything you can imagine in the Star Wars universe will do. Strange creatures, force tricks, spaceships...

    And if you wouldn't like to do that; please stay away from manga/anime style stuff.

    I currently play Tales of Zerestria, League of Legends and Binding of Isaac.

    Anime wise I like on the one side serious stuff like Code Geass, Fate/Stay Night or Mirai Nikki.
    I also like absolutely perverted stuff like High School DxD.

    Aesthetic wise I love Historical and Exotic stuff (think Asian or African cultures). Add Mystery to the mix and it will be perfect. I love serious fantasy worlds.

    "Like a half-crocked dead hoofer straight from the Gin Mill, I stumble out from the shadowy thicket, late November, once more.

    Sun rays pierced my eyes with brute, likeness to that of a sinner's blade. Amongst the rolling green hills, ancient springs, mighty oaks, and megalithic weather-beaten stone ruins, one thing stood out to me most; even more than the sweet serenades of those Eastern Meadowlark song birds.

    There in the expanse of lush green grass, backdropped by the beauty of an old weeping willow, sat a clunky white computer monitor, straight out of the 1990's.

    Eyebrows furrowed, with a gaze of intrigue, I dared to take a closer look. Amongst the pixels, burned in the phosphor of the thick glass screen, read four simple words..."

    Sign Me Up!!!  :crazy:

    I like:
    - Western Type Stuff (deserts and cowboys)
    - Attractive Landscapes
    - Beautiful Colours
    - Toned Down Colours (not desaturated)
    - Badass Heroine (kinda rebelly, tattoos, head half shaved type of thing)
    - Pixels (this ones hard i know  :crazy:)

    I dislike:
    - Extremely Over Saturated Colours (unless really well done)
    - Stuff that is too cartoony in an ugly kinda way (unless its your style, if so then i love it)

    Some of my favourite games are:
    - Life Is Strange (chloe is the type of heroine that i love)
    - Last of Us
    - Borderlands (disregard this one a bit)

    Feel free to follow none of this but ill like it much more if you somehow follow all of it.
    The preferred resolution would be like 200x200 or something (landscape, portrait or square) but im not even sure if im allowed to ask that because resolution is completely up to style so disregard that completely if you want



    I dont get it done, but when i do its not done.

    I like

    when artists do something for fun and end up 1up-ing themselves without noticing

    I dislike

    things made without playfulness :p

    (I'm totally trying to ape Illke's likes, I just dont really mind pop culture references..the one pixmas gift I got was one and it ruled!)

    I guess I'm in. I hope I don't disappoint!

    General Likes:

    Mockups.
    Sprites.
    Low bits per pixel palette and tile based things. Think NES, Game Boy (Color), or Sega Master System.
    Animation.

    Games/Characters that are cool:

    Gunstar Heroes
    Portal
    Metroid Series
    Super Smash Bros. Melee

    Wario (Adventuring Wario, not Wario Ware Wario)
    Mr. Game and Watch
    Sakura Kasugano (Street Fighter)
    Shy Guy
    Bomberman

    Dislikes:

    Hmm... no blood or gore. That's not too interesting to me, and is the only hard rule. Cartoon violence is totally fine.
    Really jarring palettes. (Default 16 color EGA comes to mind. But if you don't know what I mean by jarring palettes, or ROCK the EGA palette go for it.)
    Dithering, generally. (But again, if your whole style is dithering, go for it.)

    Really, though, most things are fine. I like all manner of pixel art, whther it's 56 colors and what some may complain is Oekaki/rough, or whether it's a carefully controlled 32/16/8 or 4 color piece. The characters/games are there in case you wanted some ideas besides, "Do whatever." Feel free to make something totally original that includes none of it.
    I program NES games. Thus, I'm the unofficial forum dealer of too much information about the NES.

    Count me in.

    Likes (just suggestions, do what you want):
    Warm, colorful color schemes, not overly saturated but definitely not desaturated. I also like really intense contrast between two colors, i.e. a picture that shifts from yellows to blues, pinks to greens, etc, if you know the webcomic cucumber quest, it is a great example of exactly what sorts of colors I love
    creative shading/clusters/colors, i.e. the reindeer dude in the op
    Faces
    Anatomically correct people, they're just always impressive
    Ghosts
    Noir Themes
    Haunted mansion themes, a la luigi's mansion, scooby doo, the asthetic of the house from the movie version of clue
    Mythologies of all kinds, some favorites are greek, norse, and egyptian

    also: robots, nautical themes, glass, water, light, skeletons, frogs, darkness, emotions, and a whole lot of other things, so don't worry just make whatever you want to make.

    Dislikes (aka, the only things I'd really not want involved):
    Gore
    Excessively crude humor
    Needless proportion manipulation, i.e gigantic boobs
    clowns/carnival themes


    If you're at a loss and just want something concrete, I always appreciate interesting takes on the character that used to be my reference, back when those were a big deal
    This lil' fellow, I just like seeing what people do with him

    I'm still missing gifts from 38 of you. That's half of you! Send them in - today is the last day!

    If I do not have a gift from you by the end of today, I will send out an annoying mass PM to those that have not finished each day for the next two days!

    Also, if you see this, have free time, and are interested in making a small present for someone(even if you aren't participating), please PM me and I'll let you know who deserves a supplemental present.

    22 presents still not delivered. I sent a mass pm to each of you owing a gift. I know a lot of you have come to me with an explanation/are waiting another day to send it, but for the 10 or so of you from whom I have not heard from.. COAL AWAITS!   :blind:
