[EVENT] Xmas in July 2018

X-Mas in July!

Table of Contents

Hooray - Xmas in July!

It's that time again!

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

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, anything of that nature. 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 a gift. Finish the gift 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 all 'Souls OOC events and contests until you complete your assignment for Xmas in July. It isn't fair to your partner otherwise!

Great! What info do I need to post?

Timeline of Events

  • Signups: July 1 - July 8
  • Information distributed: July 9
  • Due date: August 1

Some things to keep in mind...

  • Please do NOT sign up for Xmas in July if you have no idea how to draw or make a table, graphics, etc.
  • A tableset includes a table, avatar, AND signature. You're welcome to include more, but please have at least these three things unless your giftee specifies otherwise!
  • Drawn art MUST be finished and colored and a minimum of a headshot/avatar. More elaborate pieces are definitely allowed, but unfinished sketches and uncolored lineart are not!
  • Please keep in mind board-wide graphics rules and guidelines.
  • Please only request items for characters at 'Souls.
  • In an effort to ensure that everyone receives their gifts, please remember that participants who don't finish their gifts by the due date will be barred from participating in contests and other board events until they complete their part.

Character Name: Shaamah
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: He's 7 years old but appears older do to stress on his body
Reference Pictures:
~~Shirtless Reference
~~Lupus Reference
Additional Notes:
CRITICAL NOTES: Shaamah's yellow eye is gone and there is an exposed empty socket (You can draw from blue eye side if squeemish). His face is graying due to early onset aging.
He is not a nice man, doesn't smile, and is generally pretty quiet, but abrasive, condescending and aggressive.
I love dynamic poses, so if you want, HAVE FUN
Can being wearing black leather armor with black pants, or just black pants if Optime (Draw whatever form your most comfy with. Lupus and Secui are both fine. <3 Shaamah doesn't have Secui reference, just think muscles and fluff and you should be good. XD)
If Wearing this Leather Armor and Black Harm Pants, Here some ref:
~~Sketchy Reference (Can't find Artist's URL)
~~By Kitty
~~Flat colors of Armor Sketch

Drawn Art

Character Name: Greed Lykoi
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 3 years
Reference Pictures: This fullbody, and this headshot by Nina (Cause she nailed hairstyle and expression)
Additional Notes: All current scars can be referenced in the full body I posted (They are optional). For clothing he generally wears pants such as these and various tops (let your imagination run wild). You can draw him without clothes and in any form you want. Just do what you're comfortable with and have fun!

Drawn Art

Character Name: Kjell Rask
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 7 months (you can draw art of him as an adult!)
Reference Pictures: Unclothed Ref Clothed Ref
Additional Notes: The refs from above and further appearance details are all listed in detail (with reference pics for accessories) in his Wiki Page.

As for general details for posing/expression (this is applicable to an adult Kjell, not a child), Kjell is someone who puts up a big front of this suave Don Juan who is incredibly personable. Anything sly or smug would probably hit the dot, as well as something possibly more pensive. I don't have any drawn references of him wearing the accessories so they're not required, but feel free to include them if you feel like it!
Commissions are on hold for right now until I can free up my schedule a little more to work on them. PM this account or message me on Discord if you're interested, but keep in mind that they may take a while!

Drawn art!

Character Name: Nayavota Denahlii
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 7 months (but she needs adult art!)
Reference Pictures: optime hair ref and marking ref
Additional Notes: Nayavota's back, right (left when facing the viewer) foot is a club foot. As an adult, she's going to be lean-muscled with broad shoulders, a small chest, and small hips.

She has a simple, wooden hiking stick that she uses as a cane; it's pretty much just a large branch with its bark removed and made smooth. She wears wildflower crowns and wildflower wreath necklaces (sometimes at the same time), but doesn't accessorize/wear clothing otherwise.

Nayavota is always full of energy. She goes about her day at full tilt, collapses into bed, and then does it all over again. Whatever she's doing, she probably has a goofy grin on her face. The rest is up to you!
