You know, I've taken stock and... 90% of the time, when I draw Ray, I draw him in profile. I have no idea why. I guess I just really like his profile ^_^; Anywhozzle!

If you don't remember, a while back I did a poll on what sort of contests you, my darling members, would like to see here at the club. One of the front runners of this poll was the contest idea of signing up, and then having me tell you which character to draw. I've taken this idea, and put a bit of a seasonal spin on it, to give us all the...

Gift eXchange
Yes, that's right! It's the holidays, which, among other things, mean it's time for presents. And who doesn't love presents?

For this contest, things are going to run a little bit different than normal. This contest will have two phases. FOR THE FIRST PHASE, On this deviation, you should comment with your top three (or so) favourite Evo characters. Next, you'll need to list a few actions or situations you'd like to see one of your favourite characters performing.

For example, I could comment thusly:
"I love Pietro, Wanda and Kurt the most! And I adore pictures of these characters sleeping, fencing, or dancing (club, formal, whatever. Bring the music!)."

As you can see. I listed some characters, and some pictures subjects I enjoy.

Phase one will last two weeks. I worry that maybe I'm not giving enough time for phase two, but I'm confident in your abilities to blow me out of the (frozen) water.

Phase two will commence when I gather up the names of everyone who enters, mix them around, and then randomly distribute one name to each participant. Upon receiving a name, you then will draw a picture that you think that person would like. Hopefully using at least one of the characters they mentioned in their comments, but really, it's just an excuse for community, evo drawing, and gift giving. I'm a big fan of all those things.

Of course, there will still be voting at the end of all this, but really, we'll ALL be winners at the end of THIS contest (so long as no one losers out and doesn't hold up their end of the gift eXchange -_O).

TL;DR?
1)Comment to enter. Tell us what kind of Evo stuff you like.
2)Receive a name.
3)Draw that person a picture of something Evo-y that THEY would like.
4)???
5)Profit!

Oh, I almost forgot-- do try to keep your requests PG13 and under. I can't accept anything too sexy into the contest, and not everyone might be into drawing such things. ^_^;;

Hi, I'm Yami, and I'm bad at choosing things.

My favorite overall X-Men characters are Magneto's family, especially awkward family moments/angst. I think my favorite in Evo would be Pietro Rogue Lance back when Rogue was still with the brotherhood, or while Lance was with the X-Men.

For the purposes of this, four characters I would like to see are: Piotr, Jean, Wanda, or Pyro.

I would like to see these characters in their down time, out of uniform, and/or enjoying solitude. Bonus for the female characters: having them in a situation where they are looking/feeling beautiful.

Oooh, a secret santa contest, what a lovely idea! count me in.

The name is Sketch, my favorite characters are Todd, Kurt, and Lance/Pietro tied for third. I'm particularly fond of the first two as a pairing but... well, I also realize it's not a very well received pairing, so feel free to ignore that if it makes you uncomfortable. I'd love to see any of the above fighting, pranking each other, or just in general causing a ruckus. :]

I think the profile helps his hair stand out better , personally . That's exactly why I hate drawing Pietro head-on XC HELMET HAIRRRRRRRR!!!

But anyway :

^_^; Not to anyone's suprise , but ......

My all time favorite character is Toad. I've had such a thing for him since fuckin' 8th grade , so I'm not even going to front right now :blush: ...HOWEVER!

Rogue is by far my favorite girl in any of the series , and you can NEVER go wrong with Jamie -- he's a bloody army of sincerely irripressible cuteness !! :shakefist: :shakefist:

I have no particular preference on activities . Sorry , my brain kind of offlines directly after work :no:


PLEASE NOTE , however , that I never check DA from home. Soooo any notations or directions need to be e-mailed to me ( rukaforeveryours@yahoo.com ) as soon as things get going ....

( I'm also leaving town The friday before XMAS , and my folk's land has NO such services , so I can't stress that last part enough .... :( )

Thanks for everything as usual :waves:
can't wait!

Hiya, I'm Rena, and my Favorite Characters would Have to be Piotr (Colossus), X-23, and Storm. I'd really like to see one or all of them doing something out on the grounds, silly or yardwork (either way). Or, for the holiday spirit, maybe picking out/chopping down a Christmas tree, or decorating one. :)

Hi, I'm Peanut, and my fave top three characters in Evo are Quicksilver (Pietro), Pyro (John) and Wolverine (Logan). I would love for any of them to be with one or more teammates of theirs and hanging out in a comfy house in front of the fireplace and just hanging out, drinking hot chocolate, exchanging gifts or even just having conversations. :)

Hi I'm Marbles and I love Storm like I'm paid to love her! Logan is a close second, and Evo!X23 a third. Very very close runners-up (because I can't not mention them I love too many characters gah) are Rogue, Kurt and Kitty!

I'd love them separately or as a family (or in Storm and Wolvie's case, as a couple *coughcough*) doing fluffy things like teaching X how to be a Normal Girl... Or Storm recruiting one or some of the kids to convince Logan to get into the holiday spirit! Or Storm doing Christmas shopping with Logan as her pack mule... Go wild! Surprise me! :D

Hey! I wanna give this a shot!

I like Tabby, Amara, and Jamie!

Any sort of shenanigans they get into for winter! Snowmen-building? chrsitmas tree hunting? Sledding? All sorts of fun!

(I would also be interested in the fanfic exchange! I would be happy with either, but I'd gladly do both!)

The Acolyte boys (Remy, Piotr, John) making the most of down time. Open to ideas, but suggestions like maybe playing poker, video games, general out and about (in Bayville or around the snow base), plenty of options!

Hello!

I'm a big fan of Kitty, Spike, and Amara! Something with one of them being adorable would be awesome! So like Kitty trying to cook, or Spike being silly with his video camera, or Amara being self-conscious somehow.

Alternatively, if you wanna pair them up with someone, that would be great! Kitty and Lance being awkwardly adorable together, or Spike and Ororo being family, or even Amara and Kitty being cute teenage girls together.

Sorry it's kind of open-ended, but just have fun! :D

Oh!! Man, I love this contest idea~ :D
and I also want to join *u*

My fave characters are: Pietro, Rogue and Wanda.
And I would love to see Pietro with a handsome winter coat, large and black, just being cool walking in a snowy street with, or the same scene with Rogue or Wanda. *u*
If you're kind enough to draw the three mutants, that would be awesome! :D

Characters I like: Rogue, Gambit, Kitty, Lance, Kurt, Pietro, Evan, & Wanda
Couples I like: Gambit/Rogue, Lance/Kitty, Rogue/Kitty, Evan/Pietro
Extra Info: I love shipping pictures. I wouldn't mind seeing Rogue and Gambit in their costumes from TAS. Other than that you can do whatever you like. I like funny and romantic pictures, so keep that in mind

What a fun twist to the contests! I really need to jump back into the game:
My top three: Kurt, Kitty and Wanda.
Activities: Anything music related (dancing at a club, singing, jammin in a band, etc), or playing pranks out side in a winter scene. However feel free to take the scene in another fun goofy direction, if your pen happens to take you there!

this should be fun! YAY!

I love Pietro. A LOT. I also love Kurt. A LOT. I do not like Pietro and Kurt as a pairing though, just grudgingly friends. I like snowball fights, pillow fights, and another other good-natured competition you can think of. Or you can draw them scopin' out the ladies, that's always fun.

I love Pietro, Kitty, and Kurt the very most-- especilly Kurtty, but if that isn't your thing no bit deal. Anything Christmasy is great! If you can throw in cookies or hot cocoa that would be awesome.

Can we write fanfic, too? *big wibbly eyes* I would love to participate in this, but nobody would want what I can draw. D:

My favorite characters are Kurt and Kitty, and I love me some post-Apocalypse/Lancitty/Kurmanda Kurtty.

The EOC doesn't typically accept Fan Fiction. However, if there was enough interest, I could do a sub contest, and allow Fan Fiction writers to do a gift exchange with one another. The products wouldn't be eligible for the fan art contest, but it'd still be a fun exchange for those more drawn to the pen!
