My older sister always ask me why I'm not being paid to draw and I'd always dismiss the idea. Now, that I see that I am late with the deadline here I can see why I dismissed that idea. What's more, I asked my brother to scan in the drawing for me because the scanner I use is his scanner. The only thing I can do right now is take photos of the badly drawn sketches since I can't use the scanner. :(

Thank You, Laxan. I enjoyed drawing your character. Your drawing for CY_LAW looks awesome. I love the monochromatic look and the way you show the light shining through the window.

You should all listen to Beagle, she's pretty smart. This is exactly what's happening. You may see intermittent connection issues over the next couple of days, but everything will run smoothly after that.
I have been having some problems connecting to this sight the past few days, this is probably a result of the same thing. Nothing to worry about.

GunRacer wasn't in the list for the SDS. He hasn't submitted his reference to the form I've linked earlier and Star already told him to do so.

Let me preface all this by saying that it's probably for the better that I didn't get in this anyways, considering my current educational workload and extracurricular commitments.

The ref sheet? It may not have come in on your end (server issues or whatever), but I very definitely filled it out and hit "submit"-- I know this for a fact. I imagine that this is where the issue occurred, because this is my first time filling out that form with my current computer. I also browse through a proxy server because I'm paranoid that way, so there's no telling if that threw a wrench into the works. And if there have been any PMs or emails from any of the SDS crew, they didn't make it into my inbox. I can be really forgetful, but thankfully I don't delete PMs or PM notifications-- I looked back to early August and didn't find anything.

Just wanted to let you know!

Hm...Alright. If that's the case, send me your references via PMs in here so it won't get lost. I'll send you your target shortly after.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Okay, so, after all those trouble with the servers and my modem breaking out all of a sudden, I can finally post all the SDS submissions~
This round's theme is Autumn:

From Laxan to DingoVolf:

From texascat018 to Laxan:

From DingoVolf to Mr. Noms:

From yehoshua to texascat018:

Goldie (the yellow one) is PeanutFan1997's character http://goldie-p2luigi.deviantart.com/
Rafael (the one with the rake) is SuperCool-Wolf's character http://supercool-wolf.deviantart.com/
Marquis (the orange one) is Marquis2007's Character http://marquis2007.deviantart.com/
Those three are administrators for the deviantart group http://www.goldie-fan-club.deviantart.com
From GunRacer to QRS3000:
Image
A note to QRS3000: I couldn't really think of anything sufficiently autumn-y, and your character's business suit gave me a James Bond-esque vibe. Sorry about the head-- I'm terrible with human faces.

Remember: shaken, not stirred.
-GunRacer
You all did a good job at it and hopefully you can join on the next round~
Hopefully with less trouble too.

Dangit Nick, gotta make the submissions a new post sos it shows the thread has new content. :)

Very nifty work all! I am loving the themes and the SDS in general. Would almost want to see if we could do it more often, but then again my week got pretty busy and I didn't get to work on it till late. (Edit: Also, THANKS LAXAN!! :D)

My brother knows about the SDS because he helps me by scanning the drawings and e-mailing them to me.
He said he might sign up for the next art trade but wants to wait until the next round starts.
That would probably mean he would have to sign up for the forum if he hasn't already.

Besides that, what happened to the rest of the drawings?

double posts are perfectly acceptable in this thread as long as it's by whoever is running the event. Just like authors in the fan projects section can double post when they update their fic.

Well, the fall theme wasn't very easy for me, also drawing isn't very easy for me. At least this time the portrait has glasses.

Howdy folks!

I'm Mrsticky005---the infinitely wise and smexy older bro of QRS3000!
I heard about the art gift/trade/indentured servitude from him and
I like to partake in your blasphemous pagan ritual during the next
winter solstice...or er whenever the next time you host it is.
I think they are once or month or something?

Anyhow, I realize that THIS round (round 13--the round of ABSOLUTE EVIL! ABSOLUTELY!)
is over and for me it is...too...late. SADNESS! But next round shall be better than ever!
Because it will be round 14! And that's like round 7 times 2 and 7 is supposed to symbolize
perfection and is a mathematically perfect number. So 14 is like PERFECT TIMES TWO!

So I thought I introduce myself and bring you a great prophecy of UTTER AND INEVITABLE DOOM FOR ALL THOSE WHO'S LAST NAME STARTS FROM AXMBURGSTAN TO ZYPHROSIS!

But mostly I just wanted to say hi. :)

You sir, have just won one of my internet awards. Congratulations.
Bear in mind that I have all rights to take away internet awards on a whim, and that if anyone is the crazy, it is I.

Shakespearian speaken do I unto fun no longer!
Happy am I that up, I signed not, for swapped hast been rooms whilst I was gone.

And in normality, I am pumped for this next round. I've been in art overload for the passed while. I drew, not one, but THREE, new things, and am currently writing multiple songs. This may help to lessen my urge to art all over the place. ALL. OVER. PLACES. ALL OVER THEM! So, I'll be signing up this month~!
Love me right now! Done.

@ Laxan Hey! Careful with that thing! You could lose an eye that way. Like this guy --> ;)

What a good sport Winky is.

@ Leafolawl You lost me after the part you said "The keys to the city of Shantyberg are yours"
and right before the part where you said "And only then will you uncover the truth of Mt. YoYo."
