Toro's Super Secret Santa!

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 4, 2012, 7:27 PM

Edit 3 PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR PIECE IS NOT IN LANDSCAPE OR I WON'T VE ABLE TO FIT IT IN THE MURAL, THANKS ^^;

EDIT 2: Please check the list on the bottom, if you believe you should be on the list (if you did the journal correctly, I didn't have to tell you to add a link etc.) please let me know. Or if you have changed your mind and can't do it anymore, let me know also. You have until Tuesday to back out, I have to do something that day.
EDIT: Registration is now closed, sorry to everyone who appeared late to the scene~


Hello everyone! Since there was enough interest, I've decided to start my own secret santa :D
I have decided to mix some of my ideas, so we will be doing ACEO-sized pieces of art, which will be combined into a big mural at the end :)

You are free to enter a piece that is digital or traditional, provided you can fit it in the template below.

How To Participate


:bulletred: Step 1: Create a journal.
                                   - Make sure it links back to here. (You may re-use other secret santa journals, but just make sure to add this link)

                                   - Include any characters, animals, pokemon, pretty much anything that you wouldn't mind being drawn for you (and make sure you have a few options).

                                   - You may ask for your secret santa to design a character for you, but please only mention the kinds of things you like and not an in-detail description of what you want.

                                   - Include what you absolutely can not and will not draw.

                                   - State if you can or can not receive physical artworks (but remember it's up to the artist whether they end up doing the piece traditionally as well as whether they are willing to pay to send it)


:bulletgreen: Step 2: Link the journal here and your name will be added to the list.


:bulletred: Step 3: On Monday, the 19th of November, you will be sent the name of the person who you will draw for, along with the link to their journal.

                                  - Make sure you do not add anything of theirs to your favourites, instead try to bookmark them, as to not spoil who has who.
Please use the provided template (or you can make the document yourself; 2.5 inches in width, 3.5 in height).

                                  - You can also decide to increase the resolution for better printing, but it's up to you.

                                   - If you have a problem with who you need to draw for, you have until the 29th of November to let me know. Please send a note to me if this is your problem, or you have any other problems.


:bulletgreen: Step 4: You have until Monday, the 24th of December to draw your picture, and send a link of it in a note to me.

                                   - DO NOT SUBMIT IT TO DEVIANTART until I have submitted the full mural of completed arts on the 25th of December. This is just so everyone should get it at the same time :D

                                   - Tip: Submit your art to Sta.sh and give me that link, that way it's easier for you when you go to submit it, it's just a click away~

The Template

Make sure your art fits in here (if your picture is a higher resolution that is fine, just make sure the actual size IS 2.5x3.5 inches)

FAQ

I will be away around xmas, what do I do?
I'd suggest doing your part ASAP. Don't rush it, but seriously, don't put it off. The mural is going up on the 25th Dec no matter what, and I'm not giving out extensions. Remember you don't need to submit it, just send the link in a note to me and I'll take care of it.

Current Participants
50 participants!
If you miss out on a place because you forgot to put something into your journal, that's bad luck. In the future I'm sure you'll read rules a lot more closely than you have here.

Uh, I have my picture with the right inches but the resolution is huge(800px). Is that alright?
( I'll still be able to make it smaller if needed, I'm just checking )

Don't worry about it, if you can't do it by the deadline I'll find someone else or do it myself. It just would have helped a whole lot if I had known you hadn't received anyone earlier on, so now I'll just have to wait until the deadline to see who missed out -_-

What do the "=" and "@" 's mean that are on the list of names?
Also, when will we be able to give our drawings to our secret santas?

Sorry if these questions are answered somewhere else btw. .-.

err, how do I set my canvas to the required size? xD; I don't operate in inches, so this is all horribly confusing. And I tried to open the template, but I've no idea if it's supposed to be that tiny or not.
Reply
:icontorotix:
Torotix Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
Yes it is supposed to be that small. If you want to change your document to inches, there should be an option in your settings, you just need to click the tab that says "pixels" and change that to inches. Alternatively, if you would prefer a larger digital canvas without affecting the real size, you can change the resolution from 75ppi (pixels per inch) to 300ppi which is the standard resolution for print. Since this was digital, I made the template 75 which is the standard resolution for screens.
