NOTE: I now have the minimum of eight people. So lets try to get it to twelve.
CRASH'S SECRET SANTA - 2018
Now officially open
1. WHAT IS A "SECRET SANTA"?
Well, in its simplest term, a Secret Santa is where a person makes a gift for someone else without them knowing until the gift is up.
2. HOW DO I APPLY?
It's simple, really. All you need to do is sign your name in the comments below. I will give you two weeks to enter, before I close the places available. That means it closes on the 25th of October.
I must stress, however....ONLY ENTER if you think you will BE COMMITTED ENOUGH to draw a picture between the timeline given. Also, please ONLY leave a comment IF you are interested...if you cannot do it, ignore the journal, OK?
3. WHAT IS THIS TIMELINE ON WHICH YOU SPEAK?
It'll be from when I send out the Santas all the way through to the 25th of December. So that's nearly two full months. If you seriously think you can draw something between then, then by all means enter. ^^
Oh, and a little warning....I will ONLY do this if it gets enough interest. I need at least EIGHT participants, myself included, otherwise I'll have to cancel.
4. WHO WILL I BE DRAWING FOR?
Well, once the deadline for entering closes and the participants are selected, I will put everyone's name into Random.org, then shuffle it. Then I will note all the people who have entered, and I will inform them on which person they will be making a gift for. It is then up to them to draw them something.
5. DOES IT HAVE TO BE A DRAWING?
Not really. If you would like to write something, or make a video, or an animation, then by all means do so. Just make sure it can be linked to DA. However, I must INSIST that it is of an artistic medium that would produce a result that would be fitting for the person you are making a gift for. Therefore, I would rather it be your own artistry, rather than, say, a photograph of something you think they'll like.
But, whatever it is, try to make the gifts look NICE. Try to put some EFFORT into making them...I mean, I'm sure you will, but I'd hate to see that someone just made a random, poor quality sketch.
6. CAN I TELL THE PERSON WHO I'M MAKING THE GIFT FOR?
NO!! This is called "Secret Santa" for a reason. You must not under any circumstances tell anyone who you're drawing for. The ONLY exception will be whoever is making the gift for me, because obviously I will have told them beforehand.
7. BUT WHAT SHOULD I MAKE FOR THEM?
Well, what I'd do is look through their gallery, and see what sort of things they like, then work it out from there. It could be a character they have, or a fandom they have.....the possibilities are endless. Alternatively, I'll ask them to create a wishlist, and you can draw something related to that.
OK then, if that's everything, then GET ENTERING EVERYONE. X3
