Nice list so far :)


(suggestion : for those interested, can we choose to fulfill someone's specific request instead of being assigned someone randomly ? I think I can manage something cool for some requests here)

Refer to this:

Quote
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:.


Well, I guess I could try one more time at pixeling. I hope we don't get penalized for having poor pixel art as presents.

Nah, only for not handing your gift it on time. So you better not do that >:D

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:

Oh yeah, I'm going to deliver some really fine pixels this year. I swear on it! :y:

General, thematic stuff I like: Animals. Especially colourful birds with big beaks, and insects with their life-cycles (egg>larvae>pupae>metamorphosis into adult) and utilitarian design (beetles, butterflies, moths, cicadas). Reptiles and mammals are rad, too (if they have horns, thorns and/or bright colours).
Classic western literature (Ovid, Homer, Euripides).
Folktales and mythological stuff (the aesthetics of greek, nordic, mayan and japanese cultures)

Specific, pop-culture stuff: Dark Souls, Shin Megami Tensei games (esp. Persona 2,3,4 and Digital Devil Saga), Nintendo classic series (Zeldas, Marios, Megamans and so on), shmups by Cave (love Progear!), King of Fighters games (fave characters: Vanessa, Ramon, Maxima, Kim, May Lee), Street Fighter 3rd Strike and onward (fave characters: Blanka, Dudley, Hakan, Makoto, Abel), Mass Effect 1&2 (note: Shepard was always female to me)

That should be plenty to go on. If there ain't much resonating with your creativity here, just make a rad animal!

Merry Happy! 8)
