Official Artistic Gifts 2

For the original Official Artistic Gifts, look here.

Hey guys and welcome to Artistic Gifts 2, also known as Secret Doodle Santa.
The way this work is similar to the way Secret Santa works.
You get one person you have to draw and nobody else knows who you have or who has you. Sounds simple right?


Quote:
    Planning: The committee plan the details like start time and rule for the next SDS
    Signup: Interested people sign up for the event
    Assign: The participants are contacted in private who they are going to draw
    Start: The event starts
    Draw: The participants draws their target and sends the result to the master randomizer when they are done
    End: The event ends
    Post: The master randomizer posts all of the recieved drawings at the same time
    Comment: Anyone can comment on the drawings
    Rinse and repeat: Experiences and comments on the event are gathered and the committee start all over with the first point

The committee: CY_Law, NickCole, Kaido, Vadiant, Souji and Starswifter
These 6 people are the ones to contact if you have a problem or have any questions.



Next SDS:
Round: 15
Signup closes: 12th of December at 12 PM GMT [Countdown]
Start: 18st of December at 12 PM GMT [Countdown]
End: 23rd of December at 12 PM GMT [Countdown]

If you wish to take part follow this link and fill out the form:
https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreads ... cmxiWEE6MQ
Do NOT post here, that just causes a huge cluster of mess.

People involved so far:
Master Randomizer
(The person who hands out the names and gives them numbers):
Starswifter


Participants:
    Vadiant
    QRS3000
    Dissension
    mrsticky005
    DingoVolf


FAQ:
Q) I don't know how to draw can I join?
A) You still *can* join, but take this into account, the primary objective is that, you draw something for someone else, you have to make sure you came up with something in the end, we would try to tolerate with late submission or none at all, considering you have a valid reason. You wouldn't want to disappoint others do you? xD

Q) I don't know who the person I'm meant to be drawing looks like, what should I do?
A) You should PM (preferably) the Master Randomizer or another one of the Committee. They will contact the person for you and get the information you need.

Q) What should I draw?
A) Generally you draw the person's fursona or Persona. If you are unsure contact the Master Randomizer or someone on the committee to ask what your target wishes you to draw.

Q) Is there any special place we should upload?
A) No, but Tinypic or Imageshack is suggested because people can't sneak a look then. After the initial showings you may upload the drawings to anywhere you wish.

Q) Where should I post the result?
A) PM the result to the Master Randomizer. They will post your drawing with the rest at the right time. This solves time

Q) What if I do not post on time? Are there a consequences?
A) If you are missing submitting a drawing for any previous rounds you will be unable to sign up for any future rounds. There are no other consequences for being late with a submission.

Q) Who will draw the numbers?
A) Starswifter, he's the Master Randomizer

Q) How will I find out who to draw?
A) You will be PM'd by the master organizer who will asked you for a number and give you a name in return.

Q) How will we know when the event starts?
A) A PM will be sent to all participants on the start date after they have signed up, the starting date will also be listed on the OP.

Q) What's the point on doing this?
A) For pure fun, you join, you draw, and you are guaranteed to get a drawing in return, take it as an art trade, even if you're not joining, you can still view what others have drawn.

Q) I did a full picture! Fully detailed, outlined, colored shaded, background and all I got was a bad stick figure. How is that fair?
A) You need to remember that some people may not have your ability and no matter what the outcome looks like, somebody put their heart and soul into a drawing just for you. That's something special of it's own right isn't it?

Q: Do I have to wait until the end time to hand-in?
A: No, you can hand-in your drawing as soon as it is done.

Q: Which timezone are the times in?
A: Unless otherwise stated, the timezone is GMT (or GMT+1 is Daylight Saving Time is enabled) which should make it easy for everyone to calculate the time in their own timezone. You can use this site to help with the calculation.

If you have a question you don't see here, please contact someone of the committee.

And Psykeout, you are welcome to join again when you get your internet back. Hopefully your internet is going to stay for the whole event then xP

How would Psyke know that you wrote that to him if he has no internet?

One would assume that, since Psykeout posted today and has Internet access from a library, he would be able to read and reply to Starswifter's post.

It should be noted that depending on when I leave to go home, I may or may not be a bit late with my drawing. My last class is on the 21st, so I may be leaving then and not getting back to where I have access to a printer until the 27th, so my drawing would be a day late.

I may get the drawing done on the 20th though, which means I could scan it in before I leave and get it in on time. but just thought I should let you all know.

Lol thanks, believe it or not, I actually dug up the game and replay it to end(space stage atleast) just to make sure I got the stat at the believable level, don't worry I enjoyed it.

And I just can't find the icons with a reasonable resolution just so I could crop it out, so yeaaaah, I made them from scratch myself, and those little references like the yellow spice as well, I heard they're used in beverage so yea :> *shot*

Post Re: Official Artistic Gifts 2 (round 3 in progress)
It may be beneficial to implement a punitive system for failing to meet the deadline. As an example, someone who is late would be excluded from the next however many events, where the number of future events is equal to the number of days late. Those who submit their entry on the day of the deadline would be warned; if they're late again, they would be excluded from the next round.

Just my two cents. = P

Post Re: Official Artistic Gifts 2 (round 3 in progress)
I agree with Diss' call for a punishment system. Although I understand that certain events may delay work that you had every intention of doing, and believe me, I understand that entirely, it simply is not fair to sign up for an event and deny someone their request while they fulfill their end of the deal. That being said, there need be no hard feelings at all. These events ARE for fun, after all :P
