The Official Secret Santa 2007 Sign up

on: November 23, 2007, 06:33:54 pm
Once again, December is almost upon us, and that means it's about time for our Secret Santa Activity.

For those that are not familiar with this activity, the Secret Santa is pretty much an annonymous gift exchanging activity.
The participants will be assigned someone they will have to make a gift for, but at the same time they do not get to know who they are going to be receiving one from, making it a thrilling activity.
In our case the gifts will be pixel gifts, and only those that previously signed up on this thread will be able to participate.
If all this caught your attention, please keep reading


Some things you should be aware of:

  • Those willing to participate in the Secret Santa must post in this thread with a message on the lines of "I sign up".
    Posts with questionable replies will be ignored, so please be clear to avoid confusion
  • When signing up, please put a few facts about you, anything you like/dislike, hobbies, etc... to make gift making easier.
  • You may only sign up if you know 100% that you will be able to make a gift for your partner.
    If anyone signs up and does not deliver a present by December 23rd, he/she will not only be publicly humiliated, but also will be banned from these forums until I feel like it. I might give a little mercy, but you will need a really good excuse and a lot of luck (and I mean A LOT), so don't count much on it.
    Please think ahead and be responsible and do not let you partner down. Additionally if you don't come up with a gift at all, your participation on next year's Secret Santa will be forbidden.
  • If you are Adarias, roobv, DrNoodles, rabidbaboy, xegnma, Sohashu or Noveroth, I forbid you to participate in this activity. 
    Unless you pixel last year's gift as an audition for this year's Secret Santa. You will have until November 30th.


The Sign-up for this activity starts today (November 23rd) and will last until November 30th.
So, if you want to take part on this, don't hesitate and do so before it is too late. 
I will be flexible with timezones, but anyone that signs up too late will be excluded.

When this part is over, you will receive a PM (on December 1st) with the name of the person you are in charge of. 
Then you will have until December 23rd to come up with a gift for your partner. 
As stressed before, if you signed please be responsible and do not let anyone down.
Once you are done with your present, feel free to PM it to me.


So remember:

  • November 23rd~November 30th - Secret Santa Sign-up
  • December 1st - PM Send-out (You will receive your partner's name)
  • December 23rd - Last day to send your gift (Please PM them to Robot Santa)


If you have any questions regarding this activity, feel free to post on this thread of PM me and I will take care of it as soon as I can.



Q&A

What do you mean by "Pixel Gift"?
There is no specific "Gift". Simply pixel something you would like to give your partner. It can be an avatar, an animation, a whole scene, some fan art, etc... whatever, anything goes as long as it is pixelled.

I will be away on December 23rd, Can I still participate in this activity?
You do not have to wait until the last day for submitting your gifts, so as long as you deliver it in time (meaning before or on December 23rd), you are all good to go.
(Actually I would recommend all the participants to send me your gifts as you are done with them)

Can I pixel you something even though you are not my partner?
Sure, feel free to pixel extra gifts for anyone if you have some extra time, but first focus on your actual partner.

I couldnt finish my gift... can I send you a WIP?
Yes, but you must finish it as soon as you can. If I catch you slacking and not finishing it at all, you will be punished.



Wrapping

On the Secret Santa thread, all the gifts will be hyperlinked with one of these wrappers:



If you would like to choose your own, please state so in your posts (refer to them as b5, d3, a2 etc)
Remember that you will be choosing the wrapper for the gift you made, not for the one you will receive.
(In case you don't choose any, a random one will be assigned).

It's not granted I'll have time to make one this year so I wont sign up but I'd like to encourage all of you guys to make great gifts. Secret Santa is really a strong event in the pixel year, I remember how happy I was when I discovered my gift last year ^^

Good luck to you all (finding time :P) and good luck to Panda for slapping really hard the lazy pixellers :P

Yay! I didn't miss it this year.

Favourite colours: blue and black (thereafter green and purple). I hate pink.
I would be thrilled to get something of my original characters (found here: http://bluedelirium.com/main.html > characters). But if you don't feel like doing any of them, then I also like Zelda (Link, Ezlo and Tingle), Pokémon, fantasy stuff, rain, monkeys and hot guys of course. If you do fanart, then I'd prefer if it was personalized for me somehow :B (you know, not just a random sprite of Link)

Allright, I'm in on this.

I'm a pretty big sega-fanboy, so i'm a sucker to stuff like Sonic, Shining Force, Nights, Streets of rage, Puyo Puyo, Wonderboy/Monster World, Phantasy Star, Jet set radioand similar stuff. Aside from that, I like Vikings (since I'm swedish), ninjas, Sentai/Power Rangers and cute stuff.

I'd like to sign up!

I like fighting games, beat 'em ups, etc (Street Fighter, Ninja Warriors, King of Fighters, Last Blade). I generally like a lot of music. ( http://www.last.fm/user/potemkhris ). Sentai/Power Rangers shows are awesome.

Low color counts turn me on. Oh, and animation does too.

EDIT: Jad just reminded me of my unnatural love for androids, robots, and cyborgs (oh my!).

I love Metroid. Especially the Metroids.

I am sooo IN!!! Lesee... I enjoy long walks on the beach..puppies, and soccer/football if you're not an American Pig-Dog. hmm Music interests... Led Zeppelin, Breaking Benjamin, Tupac, Modest Mouse... anything really. I suppose I have not given much decent subject matter.. but I am a serious sucker for inventive palletes/color ramps/dithering


Oh.. and D4 if you please.

More things I enjoy..:
Steampunk thingies... inventive animals, pretty women, fun animations (definitely NOT required), and I find I really enjoy humor similar to Helm's brand o' funny, if you really wanted to make me happy, you could take a gander at my favorites, and attempt to find similarities in the pieces.. o.0

Malor's fave's...o.0

I believe its a good moment to stop lurking arround and be part of pixelation. so I definitively sing up for this.

Anything related to SteamPunk, Robots and SHMUP's works fine for me. and if you add a little 'Blue' touch to it, even better.

Another PJ denizen signing up.

I like portraits; Akira Kurosawa, samurai; artistic noise/chaos; tiny, awkward palettes; cartoons; robots; Apple (flame away); the open source community and general computer geekiness. I don't like anime.  :mean:

* I also like old school adventure games, optical illusions, riddles, and puzzles of all kinds.

i like anime/manga mythological beasts and just plain horror, and lots of video games, especially final fantasy 10 and 12.

The sharprm shall participate.

The sharprm likes chess, steak and chocolate. The sharprm wants the robot from robocop2 as a pet because he isn't assertive enough right now. The sharprm wishes that vegetables could mutate into intelligent, humaniod creatures who would gang up on vegetarians and tell them they are evil. The sharprm is blissfully ignorant of art history and hates what he calls 'modern art'.
The sharprm also finds using the sniper rifle on ww2 games relaxing.

edit: I like 'Azumi' and 'Battle Royale'.

Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

I sign up!

I like low-tech machines and clockworks, stoic figures, pretty girls, serene landscapes, folklore and secrets and small palletes with bright accents. I like subtlety and understatement. I think dithering is sort of tacky. I like games that are about exploration (so stuff like ico, morrowind, zelda, cave story).

It's probably easier if I link to my pixeljoint favorites. I like that stuff, there.

/EDIT

Wow this looks alot like a dutch traditional activity..  You might have heard of saint nicolas, the man where santa was based on.. We celebrate his birthday (5 december) and he gives us presents etc. etc., but in every family we draw a card with a name written on it, and we make a suprise for him/her  ;)

I'm also a Nintendo fanboi (ask ptoing about it :P) but I dislike Princess Peach, and I prefer zero suit Samus over the suited one. Also I'm a big fan of the Zelda series and Boo (the ghost)

I really like creative interpretations of a character of mine, Ekyra. She's Goddess of Gravity, she's got dark curly hair with golden decorations, she wears mostly red (and purple) and she is always holding onto a potion bottle called 'phoenix elixir'. Hope that's not too specific. Edit: Meaning, anything that's remotely inspired by her would be fun (phoenix, potion, mythology, rpg mockup, temple etc.).

Edit II: Oh and I'd like to add in that I am a very active lurker and I do pixel daily, so please don't worry about my postcount here.

It's never too late, Adarias(unless your giftee has left the forum or something). Hope to see you back next year.

also, i think i may have read over it in the first post, but how are our partners selected?

First I will assign everyone a number according to the order they signed up (in this case Sherman Gill would be 1, infinity+1 would be 2 - oh the irony - etc etc)
Then I will run this once, and I will "overwrite" the numbers (let's say the new list says 34, 21 45... then the person who was 1 now gets 34, the person with 2 will be 21, etc...)
And lastly I will rerun the random sequence generator, this time to pick the order (everyone will be chained).

I haven't posted anything in here since... last year's secret santa! This past year has just been so crazy for me. I really miss pixelling tough, and what better way to pixel other than in the coolest activity of the year? :P Just hope you guys didn't forget about me because I still hold Pixelation very dearly to my heart <3

I like all things quirky, colorful, and witty. Seasons, nature, and ridiculous kittens are also up my alley. In all seriousness though, receiving and giving gifts in complete anonymity until the very last second is what I apprecciate most.

Package B1 is the package I'd like to give to whomever.

I sign up.

I enjoy games, like Ninendo a lot (Zelda and all that jazz).
Love playing NES and SNES games and I have a thing for games with unique gameplay or artstyles (regardless who makes them).
Love great compositions, captivating palettes, interesting perspectives, and dynamic lines.
I find ancient history interesing, thinking about the universe. Sci-fi and fantasy, robots and wonderous monsters.

Sorry I haven't been around much. Work has been really tiring lately.

Well... if he pixels last year's gift as a sign up audition, I will give green lights.
But that's the furthest my holiday spirit will go. He had a whole year to do this, so I don't really feel awful about it.

I'll give the same chances to all the last year's edition banned members, so this goes for you all.
I guess you can find your partner's name on your inbox if you kept last year's PM.
You have until November 30th, when the sign up ends.

And if your partner hasn't been online for a long time and you find it pointless to pixel something for him/her, you can always pixel it for me instead. >:0

I'm hesitant to join (due to my limited skills), but it looks like so much fun, so...
I'm in!  (hopes to avoid public ridicule and bannage)
I like cool fantasy type things; monsters, warriors in armor with weapons, all that sort of stuff.  I enjoyed the Lufia series as well as the Snes Final Fantasies.  I also like a variety of creatures; salamanders, crawdads, trilobites, turtles, anything along those very general lines.

I'm in this :D

I'm excited, first time pixelling in a long time.

I like old-school run and gun scrolling platformers, classic movies, e.g. Stand By Me, robots and dinosaurs

I sign up!

I like animations of freaky human abominations. You know, the kind with lots of PUS squirting about and such. Creatively horrible, perfect for Christmas Decemberween! I like when things have less colors than more. I like creative use of dithering, though its a skill I don't really have myself. I also like BIOMECHANIC stuff, because of all the cool animations that can spawn from it.

Also, I really like "The Venture Brothers" from Cartoon Network / Adult swim, swiss fondue and the video game Shadow Of Rome. Also I really like the idea of Genghis Khan fighting alongside a crab ninja and an octopus pugilist against their common enemy, a swarm of blood thirsty fish samurai. Maybe with Brock Samson thrown in the picture just for kicks. Yeaaa wouldnt that be awesome. yeaaaa :crazy:

My likes?

My hobbies include pixel-art of course, gaming, long walks on the beach followed by a picnic, and that's about it I guess.

Im definately in, time to kick some pixel ass.

Im really into animation of all sorts, so any atempt would be awesome. But not everyone has the time to do that so if so I'd love something fun and original that can make me smile. Its the holidays afterall and so no pressure to create something incredible, I'll be greatful for anything you decide to make  :lol: .

Goodluck in advanced to whoever you may be. And to whoever I get to pixel for I won't let you down. :yay:

Really, it kind of worries me that all you guys that haven't yet contributed anything now promise to ...

a history of constant contributions, critical and artistic, nor also the best of intentions, cannot really be taken as a measure of integrity.

to any like myself who don't always realize the importance of a commitment, please reconsider participation before things get locked in in a few hours.

if the tally doesn't even out by the end of the night, I'll volunteer to be odd-man-out.  i wasn't expecting to be let in in the first place.

Actually, there are no closed partners (as in person 1 giving to person 2 and the other way) as everyone is chained. So there is no possible way the person you are pixelling for is pixelling for you.
Anyway Pan, the secret santa is all about getting presents from someone random you don't expect, if you can't cope with both pros and cons, you shouldn't have signed up from the beginning.

Eep, my person's going to be a toughie for me, but trying new things is part of the fun  :)

same here. I really expect something as great as what i'm going to give.
I don't.   :(
Oh well, I'll still enjoy it.   :)
Just so you guys know, the person you're giving to isn't necessarily the person you're receiving from... otherwise there wouldn't be much "secret" in the "secret santa"  ;)

Actually, there are no closed partners (as in person 1 giving to person 2 and the other way) as everyone is chained. So there is no possible way the person you are pixelling for is pixelling for you.
Anyway Pan, the secret santa is all about getting presents from someone random you don't expect, if you can't cope with both pros and cons, you shouldn't have signed up from the beginning.

Yeah, I didn't mean to sound negative.  I'm going to enjoy doing this whether the persons interests oppose to mine or not.
I'm gonna start soon.

And, by the way, the aforementioned gift from AdamAtomic to Indigo is a dead link.

It's still available on PixelJoint, though :)

Most programs you should be able to turn off autoAA, usually by unclicking a 'High Quality' selection, from my personal experience. I would personally not turn off the autoAA, and rotate it, then just use it as a reference and re-pixel it.

it's just lineart?  i would do that no question, or just live with the nearest-neighbor distortion because it will be gone by the time you finish the piece anyhow

here's what you do. You index the palette so it's the colors you'll use. Save this palette. Then you go back to rgb colors, and rotate freely in photoshop or something. When satisfied with new positioning, reapply the saved palette so it goes back to the limited amount of colors and you don't get any silly 3002342356 shades of a single color because you rotated. If you're using a sensible amount of colors (say, 16), any aa photoshop drops down through the indexing process will be really easy to manipulate if you don't like it.

Or just, if you have Graphics Gale, use the rotation tool that appears in the center of the selection box, and make sure you don't have AA button checked. Basically what Larwick said.

My only reason for pushing for pure pixel art methods is that they produce better results most of the time. Control produces better results.

But for resizing lineart, my method produces better results than say, redrawing the whole lineart or rescanning or whatever. It's a different thing. It's not a matter of purism.

Most of the stuff that 'light the NPA fuse' as you say, for me, do not get better results than manual pixelpushing.

Even if someone reduces from hicolor, scans a base, or grid copies, as long as he a) is transparent about his methods, and therefore isn't trying to trick anybody by wowing them with lented strength [hello demoscene!] and b) goes in and pixelpushes to regain control at some stage, it's okay with me.

allo allo.
for my parter who has been filled with wonderment

cartoony critters are quite nice
crocodiles / alligators can prove to be an interest too
i do like pirates, now how could i deny
but techno - gadget stuff is rather interesting
fantasy-esque like dragons or such
cute girls of course ;)

hopefully theres some or a few, if not many, but less than alot of ideas.

Wow. This activity has been one of the best learning sprees I ever gotten from a piece. I suppose it's because I want it to be something that has been done to the best of my ability.
Oh and I'd say 54.66666666669% done? Depends on how much I decide to do.

The order of the participants was all random as I ran the random sequence generator twice, and PM'd straight away without checking the list before doing so.
So if I got anyone you fancy, it was pure luck.

Also, if I really wanted to manipulate this activity, instead of just choosing a single person, I would have put everyone's partner to "Panda". Twice.  :mean:


[edit]: Updated the first post's list. Now those that already sent the gifts are in green.

In a fit of German-ness I sorted the participant list alphabetically (apart from .TakaM, who technically should be at the beginning of the list, but see if I care!)
And I found the green hard to read, so I made a little happy robot santa thingy which comes after each person who submitted already. \o/

Humm, just started on mine (: I'm REALLY REALLY aiming for finishing it, since I have time.

If I don't I'll happily accept my ban (I'd have earned it) and my VICTIM will obviously get hisher present retrospectively anyway (:

I feel like my gift might require a bit of explanation, post-unwrapping. Should I include an explanation with my PM to Robot Santa or... what?

I think it's going to be somewhat problematic finishing mine on time. Appears I've caught another lung infection.

I'm still aiming to finish it as planned, but I fealt I should mention it since I was out of order for 3 weeks last time. It all commes down to if the medication is working or not. I won't get much done today at least.

I totally know what you mean, I feel like I need to keep adding more to mine otherwise it won't make a whole lotta sense. 80% done, doing a bit more tonight and finishing it tommorrow or if everything goes pearshaped I may be one of the few left leaving it to the last day.. But im 60% sure I won't.

Snake just do what you can, its the thought afterall.

edit - ARG! everythings 100% except for having to AA the sht outta everything. Im going crazy trying to get this complete, you better like this [insert name] !!  >:(

 :D

edit again - seriously I feel like my head's about to pop. Im going to sleep for a bit and hopefully do more in the morning, but Im terrified having to go to work will only make hitting the deadline that much harder.. Anyway im just finishing off, polishing, doing bits that have been neglected.

eck I don't think that'd stand, the point is so its ready for christmas, you had the deadline so handing it in late is 1. unfair on your partner (who may of worked their ars of for their gift to someone else) and 2. gives the mods (Is it Panda organising this) more work. But I suppose you should hand in atleast something for the deadline because its deffo the thought that counts, people here are on all levels of artistic skill and im sure whether finished or not your partner would be greatful

I will not give any extra time to those that don't come up with a gift because:
1. You signed up knowing the deadline was on the 23rd of December.
2. You can send in WIPs.
3. It is not my job to listen to all the excuses and whatever crap and take care of it for an extended time, just because you didn't plan your time properly.
4. You had 23 days. If you couldn't spare a couple of hours on this, then you shouldn't have signed up at all.

I won't give any second chances. Seeing how it went last year, it is worthless.
Anyone without a gift by the last time I check the PMs (which will be on the 24th's morning, as stated above), will be banned straight away.

there's no point extending the deadline:

anyone who misses the deadline is probably
1 - unaware of it because they barely check the forums anymore (and won't be around any time in the next week to notice) - this was me last year and I didn't know until January that I'd even been banned
2 - unaware of it because they never cared (and aren't going to in the next week)
3 - willfully ignoring it because they are douchebags (and are still going to be next week)
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

I sent mine in a couple days ago... but am extremely disappointed by it. I'm in another one of my slumps with art and couldn't come up with ANYTHING good, especially with what I was given to work with, so I just pixelled anything and sent it in before the deadline. Maybe I'll redo it one day for the poor sap.

 I think it was within the last month or so.. so I'd say it was still a valid excuse. This is assuming of course, that Baccaman doesn't turn anything in, which is unknown of as now.
