Re: ~[ Secret Santa Event 2012 ]~

All these presents are super awesome that some people didn't get something in return. Doesn't this unfairness make you angry?


i have feels...

Re: ~[ Secret Santa Event 2012 ]~


when it says 00:00 wednesday: … p;ie=UTF-8
~Hi and welcome to this superdelicious event I'm holding~
(It's so funny I'm organising this; I have no christmas spirit at all. I'm just as entertaining as a brick)
I'm organising this rather early because last year, people wanted to join but it was too late.
Secret Santa event is an event where an artist makes a drawing for another artist.
This happens in a few steps explained below:

Step 1
You make a wishlist and post it up here
These are drawing requests. For example a character,
or a landscape or an abstract or ... you name it.
Do not request the kind of stuff that isn't allowed on RMD.

Step 2
- You will receive the wishlist of some other person and you have to draw one of those wishes.
Do draw. Last year, some people didn't get a Secret Santa and other people were kind enough to draw it for the person.
The persons, who were to receive a gift but didn't get it, were really disappointed. Also finish it before the deadline. There's almost no excuse to why you can not finish it before the deadline. Just draw a little bit every day and I'm sure you'll finish it.
If you don't, Santa will hate you neutral
...And remember, Santa can sneak into your home at night...

Step 3
Do your best
You don't have to draw like a God. Try your best.
The idea of giving a gift is worth more than the gift itself.
That's what my mother said when I gave her a regular wooden spoon for her birthday.

Step 4
You submit the drawing to your own account between Christmas and New Years Eve.
Not before that date. You also keep it a secret who you have until you have submitted the drawing.
You can apply to Secret Santa until the 9th of December (Sunday).

You'll be send a message on December 10th or 11th.
(except 1 due to full inbox, but already let the person know their inbox is full and I can't send them anything)

Starting from Christmass until New Years Eve.


How to ensure that you will finish your Secret Santa:
These are tips. I'm not forcing you to follow them.

Save your drawing regularly. But thatís a no-brainer.

Make screen shots of your drawing. Print Screen it. I bet Apple has got a similar button for that.

Make a backup of your drawing file, upload it to mediafire or mail it to yourself so you can have access to it from every computer you can go online with. You can put it on an USB stick but make sure you donít lose it.

If your drawing tool refuses to work. Even after rebooting your system, waiting for a day and if Mick is unable to fix it within a few days, then you take the screenshots you regularly made and finish it in an offline drawing tool such as PaintTool SAI, Photoshop or Corel Painter. Just a few examples.

BUT all drawings are made in the RMD tools since this event is hosted on RMD. The above explained situation is an exception.
What doesn't seem too fitting for a Secret Santa gift
Just a lineart.
A sketch.
Little amount of effort.
It looks horribly compared to the rest of your gallery.

Donít be a butthole and put effort into the Secret Santa gift.
You give what you want to have in return.
these weren''t frequently asked, but asked only once~ (xD)

Lets say I finish my drawing a few days before christmas...will I just keep it stored in my files, and wait until the 25th to unveil it?

And when I do finish my drawing, will I send it to you first so you can deliver the present, or just publish it for all to see?
You don't send it to me. You submit it to your own profile between christmas and new years with january 2nd being the deadline (january 1st being the last day).
Make sure the title of the drawing let's the person know that you have them.
(example: "Secret Santa: Naruto for Username"

Do we make the drawings once we get our Secret Santa, and then post them between Christmas and New Years?
Yes. Everybody (except 1) should have received the wishlists and can start right away and the posting happens between christmas and new years.

Do we send them the link to the drawing and tell them we are their Secret Santa?

Do we send them the drawing file?
No, you submit the drawing to your own profile.


This might seem strict and control-freakish, but I donít want anybody to be stuck with a low-effort gift or with nothing at all while Iím organizing this.

You have 21 days time. Lack of time canít be an excuse.
You have  21 days time. Time and effort usually intertwine a lot. A lot of time = a lot of effort.

Ahh slenderman. The game becomes less shocking if you change your goal into finding slenderman instead of running away from him.
