Have you ever participated in a Secret Santa (for gift art) on DeviantArt? For those who don't know, it's a gift exchange where you get assigned a random particiant to draw for, and you will get a drawing from another random participant.

There is not one particular place to find them. They are user-hosted, so you have to find a person or group who hosts one :P

yeah, mine was acombination of exchanges and collaborations. though in this case it depended n so many people even more, since when one didn't do their part, one other also wasn't able too and in the last few rounds it just really got a mess because half of the people didn't draw their part and then didn't even answer me when i asked :/

Ugh, that sucks... Those are the worst scenarios :noes:
In my last Secret Santa I made it a rule that people who didn't draw anything themselves would not get a backup drawing if their person ended up dropping out, which saved some work, but it was still a mess when many people replied late or not at all D:

I did a long time ago and can't remember if I actually received anything from it 0:
Also did a taxidermy secret santa on here last year, if that counts, which was super fun. I got to clear out some space in my room and got some neat stuff sent to me :dummy:
