There has been some questions about the next round and I have some interest in testing some new paper, so why not. For reference and what to expect, here's the stuff from the previous round:
-I draw any organic lifeform you will describe, be it animals, plants, fungi, microorganisms or extraterrestrials, as well as landscapes. No robots, machines or cyborgs; while you might surely have some nice ideas regarding mechanics, I'm just terrible at drawing them and you would definitely get a disappointing result.
-Use only words to describe the creature. No visual references, unless you want to show me a pose you want to have it in.
-Since this is about creature design, I prefer not to draw specific characters you describe. Descriptions like 'Draw Timmy, he is a five-year-old boy with smooth brown hair, a pudgy face and wears a red raincoat' likely won't be approved. Unless you want Timmy to be turned into a tentacle alien boy, since the description didn't specify him to be human.
-No real lifeforms (ex. Draw a cat) or fanart (ex. Draw a Predator), but you can try to describe them without using the name, with vague (ex. Draw a small predatory mammal with a short face, striped coat and sharp curved claws/Draw a speckled humanoid with segmented tentacles for hair and a crab-like mouth) and absurd (ex. Draw a dog with a face like an owl/Draw a man with crab legs on his head and a vagina mouth) descriptions being preferred, so you can laugh at how far from the original the result is. The only exception for fanart I will do are descriptions from stories, where I won't mind if you copy-paste the descriptions directly into the comments.
-Keep the descriptions short. While it is important you mention everything you want to have on your creature, I prefer not to draw after page-long descriptions of every single body part with exact measurements, like you will find in scientific descriptions of new species. Also, there is no need to include the colour, since it's a b/w drawing. You can include the patterns, though.
-Aside from a creature description, you can also tell me what the creature is doing, but it's optional.
-Approved descriptions will get a number. That way you can both tell that your description was accepted, as well as find the drawing of your creature later.
-Each commenter can get up to 5 approved descriptions. If you give me more than 5 before I have approved them, I will pick the most appealing five out of them and adding any new descriptions after having five approved will be ignored.
-Don't gnaw my ears off if the resulted drawing doesn't look exactly as you envisioned. I will draw the creature anew if I fuck it up (ex. the creature was described as an eight-legged wolf but I drew one with only six legs), but it's about making something out of a description, which involves a lot of interpreting and filling in the parts that were not described.
-Instead of additional descriptions, you can also ask for closeups of body parts (like the head or an opened wing), where two closeups count as one description (e.g. you can get five descriptions, three descriptions and four closeups, two descriptions and six closeups, etc.)
-The drawings will be SFW, so no porn or violence. On the other hand, I won't do Barbie doll anatomy, either; if there's a butt shot, there will be a butthole.
-The drawings are not to be used for commercial purposes.
-Be creative! I want interesting ideas to draw, it would be pretty unfortunate if 60% of the descriptions turn out to be variations of that generic cute critter that looks like a cross between a cat, rabbit and pomeranian you see everywhere in anime.
-If you had submissions left over from the last round which didn't get approved because they exceeded the 5 images limit, feel free to submit them again. I will not scour the old journal for the leftovers, so it's for you to decide if you still want them drawn or prefer to write up new ideas.
