[EVENT] Xmas in July 2022

X-Mas in July!

Table of Contents

It's time again for our biannual exchange of art!

How does it 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, reference images, etc. After everyone has signed up that would like to participate, we'll take the names of each person and give them out to another person randomly to make art. Finish the art for your recipient before the due date!

Gift assignments are done round robin style, so your giftee and the person giving you a gift are different people.

REMEMBER! If you fail to turn in your set by the deadline, you will be put on our Contest Ban list. This means that you will be unable to participate in any 'Souls boardwide OOC events or contests until you complete your assignment for Xmas in July. It isn't fair to your partner otherwise!

CHANGE FOR 2022! In years past, graphic table sets, signatures, and photomanip avatars were accepted for exchange, but moving forward, only drawn art will be accepted. This can be traditional or digital and at minimum, a bust portrait usable as a forum avatar. Full-body and more elaborate pieces are more than welcome though!

Great! What info do I need to post?

Some things to keep in mind...

  • Please do NOT sign up for Xmas in July if you don't know how to produce cleaned up, avatar-ready artwork.
