Gazing upon the endless desert of nimbostratus clouds graced by a golden, perhaps even improbable sight of sunrise atop the world, you cannot help but feel this place is quite mystical - almost as if it depicted Heaven itself, which has so far been but a tale told by an old book. From one of the two precipices that breach the skies and are still reaching for the stars above resting so far away from you and your home on the ground, only one thing can be found proudly towering over the clouds: an unusual rock formation in the distance, standing tall and strong like a large mountain.

'This is where my home begins', speaks the griffon who has taken you here. 'It awaits a hero. That hero just might be you.'

The griffon briefly looks at the mountain before glancing back at you, at first appearing quite stoic but then openly displaying deep concern and sadness; a hint of how forlorn and full of grief this otherwise mighty and dangerous beast is.

'For generations, griffons have been seeking a soul - any soul at all - that would demonstrate strength, wits, and bravery needed to save them from their foe and their terrible curse. A griffon without wings may still survive... but alas, it deprives him of many things he needs and makes his life much harder than it previously was. If only there were someone who is strong, smart, and bold enough to aid us, he or she would defeat our enemy and free us from being slaves to the earth and not being able to take to the beautiful open skies that the griffons rightfully rule. And with your abilities, I feel you must be that someone. If you help us, we would be eternally grateful...

From here, it takes trusting the clouds not to let you fall through and to allow you to safely reach the world of griffons, putting your bravery to the test. It was something I have discovered when I set out to look for someone like you, initially intimidated by the possibility of plummeting to my doom as I could not rely on my wings to keep me in the air. But as long as one remains valiant throughout, even the most grounded of creatures are able to cross the greatest abyss anyone could encounter.'


Hey, so... I hope you like the piece! I also thought to write the above thing to go with it, as I'm not well versed enough to construct more complex/numerous scenes (and I do much better at rendering creatures than I do at landscapes apparently, lol) and I felt like I needed a short story-like segment accompanying it to give more depth to it. I also wasn't entirely sure what to do with the "adventure" and "Another World-style" aspects you asked for, as I said I'm not an extremely experienced artist so I didn't want to over-complicate things to the point of having a piece I can't finish but at the same time I didn't want to do a standalone sprite or something as I felt that would be a tad too boring. Anyhow, merry Christmas and have nice holidays buddy! -Eggy

Hi ilkke, Happy Holidays! ... well, it is still a WIP but I gave it my very best shot. I will continue working on it in January.

:santastic: Merry Christmas! :santastic:

Finlal, ARandomLake, Acrontoff, Maxcreed and Yinochi have sadly not sent in their gift. Arcade Hero provided a gift for junkboy, but Yuushia, supermaxy4 (thank you aamatniekss!), ME (thank you Kashou!) and Arcade Hero (thank you Veksell and lamantine!) are still without a gift! If anybody has some extra time and would like to make gifts for those four, please go ahead! Just post them in this thread if you got anything, I'll add it to the main post later :) Everybody has gifts! ;D

12th ANNUAL
PIXELATION SECRET SANTA!
Sorry atnas, I'm stealing your post. Thanks yaomon for the santa!

Click and retweet to spread the word!



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: 2016 - 2015 - 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
  • Pika and EdJr 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:
    amputees, sneakers, luigi, BDSM, and rap music
    I do NOT like:
    Star Wars, flowers, children, and spiders.
    Thanks! again no spiders

Important Dates
  • November 14th~22nd - Sign-ups
  • November 23rd - A PM with your partner's name will be sent out to you; keep it a secret and start early!
  • November 23rd~December 23rd - You have a whole month to make a beautiful pixel present!
  • December 23rd - Last day to send in your gift!
  • December 24th - Very last chance! DON'T make our lives harder if you can avoid it, finish before this time period. Send me your WIP if you aren't finished.
  • December 25th - PRESENTS!!!!
PM me if you're confused about anything or have any questions to ask after consulting the FAQ below.



SantA's Crow'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 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 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! But 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!)

Portfolios / Re: Darkhan

This doesn't go here mate, it's a nice website and all but this should probably go in personal projects or portfolios.

I guess Portfolios will have to do.
