I will sign up but I'm working on my site for my comics.
I was going to ask to have some characters of mine drawn.
Then maybe if it's cool with all the parties involved to include
the drawings on the site in the fan art or art trade section.
Of course if they rather not then I'll just leave it here.

It is only a single person that is going to draw your character, not everyone. And whether or not you may include it in your fan art/trade section is something that you have to take up with the artist afterwards :)

I know. What I plan to do is ask the artist who draws the character AND the person
who requested for me to draw their item to be allowed on the site. Of course this
would be done after the round itself is over. Anyways I've been trying to get the
site organized so it's ready. I think I got things figured out. :)

Drawings so far look great. Can't wait to see the rest.

Kinda forgot to make it Halloween-like...But I dunno.
I think a giant muscular otter about to drop kick
you in the face would be a tad bit scary.

QRS3k - That is inexplicable and I love it, thanks you!

Also agree good work so-far, but what is with half the intended submissions missing? There were some missing from last round as well, and far as I can tell one that was done but never showed in the results.

I can't believe I missed this before :shock:
I would have joined, but I've been busy with work and whatnot.

Anyways, I've noticed that with these things some people drop out every once in a while, and sometimes certain people are missed. So since I missed the signups but still want to contribute, let me know if anyone's request is missed and I'd be glad to fill in a hole. Thats all. Great pictures everyone!

Alright, let me know how that goes.
If anyone has to drop out, or something unfortunate happens causing someone to not get a picture, PM me and I'll be glad to draw a picture for them in place of the missing artist.

EDIT: Also, don't worry about giving me any drawings in return, I'd just be glad to help out and draw someone something nice :)

I have heard from Kurowolfe and NickCole .. stuff happened which set them back, but they should be in progress (although late).
Laxan was actually removed from this round as she failed to reply with a number (which is used as a confirmation of participation) ... I just never removed her from the list. Sorry for the confusion, my mistake :P

Doesn't look like it .. if we were to do it this month, the signup would close on Wednesday ..
I really do not have time to handle it all, and I have not asked anyone in the committee to take over this month. Completely my fault!

Any word from Kurowolfe or NickCole?

Just so it's known I used this stock image as reference for my side of the trade.

Looking good! I like the coloring on each! Speaking of which sorry mine is in black and white
but to be honest I couldn't really come up with anything until the last minute.
I do plan on coloring it afterwards. It's been a while since I've drawn something and
I need to get back in the groove. It's just it seems like there's a lot of other stuff
to worry about.

@Vadiant The drawing looks awesome. I like the huge present that my character is holding and how there's a snowman off in the distance. It kind of looks like there's a large field or yard there.

With massive apologies for lateness, here's a "Diss Is Out of Practice" bust shot for Vadiant. To compensate for lateness and general badness, I'll be including some pencil sketches and such.

Thank you Diss, I have added it to the post.

On a more serious note, we are seriously considering to shut this down. The number of participants keeps falling, and soon we will struggle to even get a round started. Unless this changes somehow, we have no other choice than to stop.
There will not be a round in January, and unless a lot of people pokes me to get a new round started in February, December was the last round ever.

We made it to 15 rounds, 16 months, and we are satisfied. This is not including those rounds that we had before it all started. A bit sad that this was how the event died, but all things must come to an end some day.

If this really have been the last round, then I would like to thank all that have participated. You have made it fun, interesting, and I have been excited to see every single drawing you have produced. Thanks to the committee for help and support. Thanks to those that have helped when I was not able to lead a round.

Happy new year, and enjoy 2013!

We could probably start a new thread in which artists who are open for art trades or drawing gift pictures post and exchange information of their own free will.

Not a bad idea actually.
It would be interesting for people to watch, it promotes peoples to draw, and it will easier for the trading artists to work out any misunderstandings in the descriptions, instead of having me to send messages back and forth xP

Thanks for the offer Diss, and good ideas Star, but maybe we let it rest for a bit and we'll poke the idea again in a month. Official Artistic Gifts 2 was a hoot and I appreciate being a part of it! At least it went out with a doodle. :)
