[EVENT] Secret Santa 2020
#1

Secret Santa!


Yup, it's time again for Secret Santa -- your annual exchange of pretty graphics or shiny art!

How does this work?


If you're unfamiliar with traditional Secret Santas, here's how they work!

First, you leave the information for one of your characters: name, appearance, anything of that nature. After the sign-up period, we'll take the names of each person and assign them to another person randomly to make a gift. You make a gift for your person based on the information they've provided for their character! Gift assignments are done round robin style, so your giftee and the person giving you a gift are different people.

Participants have the option of giving and receiving either a tableset for posts or drawn artwork.

Great! What info do I need to post?


If you're looking to GIVE and RECEIVE a TABLESET:

Some things to keep in mind...

#9
TYPE: ART

Character Name: Waynescott Wyatt
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 5
Reference Pictures:
Headshot
Optime Color/Body type Ref
Full-Body w/ Outfit
His hat, always on him

Additional Notes:
His Wiki is a bit bare, so I have all his info here. You don't have to do any of the ideas I have here, but this is just to inspire. Have fun with it first and foremost! Optime, please! Preference is mostly for a torso and up shot since that's what I'll be giving unless requested differently, but prof pic is cool too, and feel free to full body if you so desire! If you don't want to draw all his clothes, just his pants and hat are his minimum wear on the daily.

Some pose/mood ideas pertaining to the character's attitude: Being happy drunk, grumping with his morning coffee in an old metal cup, looking impish or mischievous with a crooked grin, stoic with a narrowed gaze looking out into the distance, cold and mad about it. Using his rifle like a club. Just some ideas. :3

*Little details:
- 6'5" - Rhomboid body type
- Middle finger left hand missing at the knuckle
- Little white marking on his forehead is easy to forget. <3
- Thick neck ruff is thin, fluffy and sticks out kinda this but a smidge lower on his neck
- Hats are hard, so if you just want to lace his hat over his neck like this or like in his Optime clothing ref to hide it, that's cool and I completely understand!

Other things:
- Companion - Turkey Vulture named Nipple Cud
- Mount - Paint Grade Stallion named Cochise

Reference Pictures: 1 2 3

A true selfless act always sparks another
#11
TYPE: ART

Character Name: Salem
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 3
Reference Pictures: Album: https://imgur.com/a/Fi6V78L
Additional Notes: Headscarf can be tied in in any way with no hair showing, and feel free to be creative with the dark face paint if you want to be. Just have fun with it, that's all I care about!
#12
TYPE: ART
Character Name: Tamarack Oldroot
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 2.5
Additional Notes: I'm not picky about her appearance. She's just a friendly fluffy wolf who doesn't make many mean faces, so there's that. I realize her lighter face marking in her current avatar/the second reference is inconsistent with the other images of her, but it is the most accurate. The lighter fur is spreading on her face as she gets older. Anyway, have fun with it!
