UPDATE: Pass this message around. This is not limited to friends or watchers! This is for anyone and everyone. If you're reading this and know of a friend who could use a little piece of gift art over the holidays, send a Note my way! =
So, I'm back again. Again, again. Still behind on a BUNCH of gifts and stuff, but I'm going to try and keep up to date with my dA. I said TRY
Well, timing being what it is, I have missed most Secret Santa sign ups. No biggie, when life gives you lemons and all that.
It got me thinking: let's do something different!
Last year, I randomly picked out some lucky candidates for surprise gifts. It wasn't random random, but I didn't know them, so it counts, okay?
This year, I will be doing a Wishing Well!
What's that? What's a Wishing Well with capital W's you ask?
Simple, it's a one-way Secret Santa for a friend!
So, you request art from me for a friend of yours and then I draw it and deliver it on Christmas as a nice surprise!
Signing up is easy! Just send me a little Note with the name of your friend you want the art for, a little bit about them and what they'd like and any other important information (deadlines, likes/dislikes, fandoms, etc).
Here's an example:
"I'd like to request a gift for my friend Card-Queen. She's been working so hard and got a live snake delivered to her house for her birthday, it was awful and she's been gloomy ever since. She loves her projects card-queen.deviantart.com/gall… and likes cartoony styles of art. I really think she'd love something this Christmas and I think you have a great style that she'd really love!"
See? Easy! You try. One request per person and I have the right to refuse any request. Treat friends who don't get a lot on special occasions, who have bad luck when it comes to Secret Santas, who are so busy or stressed and need a little pick-me-up. This is not a place for you to scam free requests or request art for artists you don't know and want to impress.
For the most part, these'll be little simple drawings like this:
Requests can be OCs, fandom things, robots, animals, actors (and in special cases couples and trios), I might add a background if the mood strikes me, but I won't lie... for the most part I'll probably be a shape.
Sign-ups start.... NOW!!
