Thanks for joining! Please if you have anyone you would like to invite let me know and I will send the a formal invitation! Also If you see this and would like to join please read the lovely rules! You can find them here------> OC-Art-Xchange Rules and GuidelinesOC-Art-Xchange Rules:
*Artist/art recipient pairs will be chosen at random. You will only know who YOU are drawing for - not who is drawing for you.
* Any and all types of characters are allowed. Artists should be prepared for the possibility of drawing an anthro character, a human, a completely original creature, or who knows what!  
*Members need not feel obligated to participate in every month’s exchange. A journal about the coming month’s trade will be posted toward the end of the current month. If you would like to participate, simply comment the journal. If not, no worries!  
* Adult content is acceptable ONLY if the person you are drawing for has stated in their post details that it is okay with them. General deviantART rules apply of course, and no artist is required to draw adult content if they do not wish to do so, regardless of if it was requested by their recipient.
* Do the level of work for others that you would like to see done for you. A do

If you do not follow the rules for joining you will be declined.

If we could find 4 to 5 people who want to start doing exchanges every month again, then I think we could start up again

Foxbrideart Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2020  Professional General Artist
Hello....yeah I am sad this place is dead too...there just aren't many people left to keep doing the exchanges
Foxbrideart Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2017  Professional General Artist

So will the May 2017 folder be open for submissions soon? I finished my pic long ago but wanted to put it in the proper folder. Also, is the June theme going to become the July theme?
Foxbrideart Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2017  Professional General Artist
omg....ummmm I'm so sorry....I have been so caught up in a new job, that I haven't had time to monitor this! >< I will try and be better! I thought the May folder was open? Let me check it. It's open! Go for it! I was wondering if we could wait for July! I will let yall pick whatever theme! It can be open!

The thing is, the inside of the other folders have a "contribute to this folder" button on the right side, but the May folder doesn't. And even when I try the "contribute art" button on the home page, the only options I get are the ref sheet folder and the ones for March and April. But waiting for July is fine with me. Congrats on the new job!

So is this group still active, or-? 
Foxbrideart Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2017  Professional General Artist
we have not been active for a while because people did not have time to participate. That left only two people trading every time which wasn't really fun. If people want to start up again...I guess we should take a poll.
Liketheisland Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2017  Professional Filmographer
Yes! Please! I miss having other artists around who I can relate to more easily (similar ages, tastes, skill levels, and places in our careers) than who DA's general user base appears to be.
