Hey guys and welcome to Artistic Gifts, 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?
The committee of awesome: Laxan, CY_Law, Nickiestyer, Kaido, Vadiant and StarswifterCY_Law wrote:Right, since it's the first on the forum, it's kinda inevitable for it to be a clutter,
we have since proposed on following the current pattern:
1)Planning(We would probably have a "committee" for that.)
2)Recruiting(Self explanatory, we would announce the detail of a new round, including time starts, time ends, list of people, rules etc)
3)Assign(Where we would contact the participants, privately, about the details of who they're drawing for)
4)Starts(We would start off the event at whatever we planned beforehand)
6)End(Where the event stop, possibly a little extra time for sorting out the submissions, usually 24 hours after the even starts)
7)Post(Where either everyone, (or have one people to collect all submissions) post their respective drawings)
9)Rinse and repeat
These 6 people are the ones to contact if you have a problem or have any questions.-

Do NOT post here, that just causes a huge cluster of mess.
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) Starswifter 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) As of yet, nothing but we may add in a minor punishment which would be along the lines off 'Locked out for x amount of rounds'. But as of yet there isn't one.
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: 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.
If you have a question you don't see here, please contact someone of the committee.
