NY2017 Surprise Art Exchange [CLOSED]

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 5, 2017, 9:01 AM
:new: The Exchange is now closed. Thank you to all participants!


Hello again, fellow Thedosians! :wave:

For our final event of the year, we've decided to host another surprise art exchange!

If you've done this before, it's the exact same event as our previous three. If you're a new participant, the idea is like a Secret Santa event; you make a wish for an art piece you want created, I do a little artist-pairing magic behind the scenes, and you get surprised with your request. :)

If you would like to participate in this event, please comment below with the following information:

1) A statement that you are willing to fully participate in the event - this includes making art for others, not just wanting art made for you!
2) Your art request - please keep it relatively simple and make sure everything is clear. Links to descriptions, references, etc. are required. If you are open to literary interpretations of your request, please let us know.
3) The medium in which you specialize - fic writers are welcome and encouraged to participate. Listing medium will help me more appropriately pair artists.

The deadline for signup is Saturday, December 16th. After that point, I'll start sending out notes to all participants with partner details and the actual event deadline, and we can begin. :D

Let's spread some more Dragon Age good cheer for the new year, shall we?

To work! :salute:

Mabari Kitty Surprise by Mutantenfisch I got my gift :D Just wanted to tell because it is not in the list.

Greetings :D

Thank you for letting us know! :)

Cullen and Rosalyn by Jickleberry  I just finished this piece for the art exchange =) Ages-of-Thedas 
Nosferatirium Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2018
I don't even know what this is...
Karendrae Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm sorry I missed this! However, I will definitely be waiting around to see what you all come up with :).
Captain-Savvy Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Glad to see so many signed up! I'm really looking forward to seeing all the wonderful gifts posted in the exchange. :)
ShujiE Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Or if the artist has issues with the large age difference, they can do a piece with Theo Trevelyan and Dorian.  ScreenshotWin32 0005 Final by ShujiE  Their relationship is a bit more physically intense, however, literal sparks flying from day one. I've uploaded some playthrough videos of him on YT.
AshenLights Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This sounds like a wonderful idea! I'd love to participate, but I was just wondering when the deadline would be approximately? I'll be away for the second half of December, so I wouldn't be able to get my part done until after New Year's. 
AuriV1 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The second week in January. :)
Rad-Puppeteer Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
This looks fun but I already have too many art commitments for December. Also, my wrist got a taste of what carpal tunnel is feeling like :[ Good luck to everyone that's participating! I'll join the next art exchange!!

Your surprise artist would like to know if you could perhaps give a small description of your Cadash's personality?
NorroenDyrd Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2017
Hmmm, she is optimistic and friendly, and I would love to see her with a happy expression if that helps!
Hobby-wise, she loves drawing, especially tattoo design. ^^
Mutantenfisch Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh jeeeez..... accompanying my gf to her Ancient History courses slowly shows effect. I meant Satinalia, of course. Not the Ancient Roman party-time. Ahem.
AuriV1 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hi there! Your surprise artist would like to know if you have any screenshots or faceclaims for your Lavellan. If you don't, that's ok.
karikun Featured By Owner Edited Dec 19, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't have screenshots, unfortunately. But I do have a few pieces on my Lavellans in my gallery, like this:  Inquisitor Nymeria Lavellan  by karikun or  Lavellan's Lament by karikun
Also, I just found out how to make thumbnails on DA, so to add to #3 of the intro entry, my art exchange piece would likely look something like this:  Asharis Lavellan by karikun
Captain-Savvy Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aw maaaan. This is such a wonderful event. I really want to sign up, but for now I must make a hesitant pass. (Unless I manage to somehow catch up with 95% of my art to-do list before the deadline, then I will be all in and very eager to participate)
