Secret Santa Rules and Sign Up Information


1: Keep it secret. (It is not fun if you go telling everyone. Where is the surprise in that.)
2: If you sign up you need to do a picture. (You hurt a lot of people by treating this as a way to get free art. And you get a 5 year ban from the project to go along with it.)
3: No tracing or bases. (This will be treated the same not handing in a picture. Even if your found out after when all the pictures are posted. Traced pictures or bases are not accepted in the project.)

This year I am taking off the requirement for a background. I want everyone to think of it this way. If you worked really hard on your picture, 2 hours or more, and you got the picture you are handing in would you be happy? So this way you can determine when your picture is done. As usual I strongly suggest you guys do a background I will leave it up to you. In the end everyone's pictures will go up together.

If you missed out keep watch of future Secret Santa's in the new year. And if you wish to see the pictures created this year watch this group.

If you are a member please remember to wait till I have specifically told you in an e-mail that the secret is out before you post your picture online. :)

Welcome to the Lilymud Secret Santa. We are now on our 13th year. Thank you to all those returning for yet another awesome year of Secret Santa fun. And a big welcome to those who are joining us for the first time. If you are new to this project please read the two areas below. If you have any questions please e-mail me and ask. I will be happy to go over things further with you. If you are a returning member please check out the Important dates and then you may head down to sign up.

What is the Secret Santa:

The secret santa is like one big secret art trade. On the date specified in the "Important dates" area I will e-mail you the name of who you will be drawing for. You can then get their information they posted and make a picture for them. BUT REMEMBER: It is secret. So do not tell them and do not show them your picture. When your picture is done you e-mail it to me and all together on the same day everyone will get an e-mail with the finished picture and at then the secret is over and you are welcome to share your picture with the world. Do not post it before that time. Even if other secret santa projects end early this one will end on the date listed below so make sure you know that part.

What do I need to take part:

You need to be able to create a picture for someone else. Does not matter your skill level just that you are willing to try and put effort into an artwork. If you do not have any personal characters you are welcome to use Canon characters but please provide either a screenshot or a drawn picture created by you of your character.
If you are a brand new artist I will have to see that you know the concept of doing artwork for someone else. I often find the people who do not hand one in are people who have never done a picture for another person. So that will be my only requirement. Most of you will already have this and it is no worry to you at all.

******************Important Dates:*************************

These dates are a little different then normal. People who often sign up late, please make note as to when sign ups close. You will miss out if you are too late. We are starting early due to my life schedule but it will also give you guys a little more time to complete your pictures. Please use that extra time to your advantage.
