Well!! Due to a number of you asking to do this again here are the rules...again!! Let's get this show on the road!!
1. We want your best!
This is Christmas time, please give your work 110%. The gift you are going to receive will be their best, so please give yours. If you feel you need more time, do not be afraid to ask. Send a note and let us know. Please attempt a background as well.
2. Submissions MUST be colored.
Sketches, poorly-scanned drawings, and low-quality photographs of drawings will not be accepted. Traditional work is accepted but please make sure to color it so the scanner can capture the colors. Sometimes light coloring makes for faded looking colors. We want to see your best work, please give 110%! It is Christmas after all and chances are you will be given a drawing or fanfic with the same amount of effort put into it.
3. Stick with your request.
Please draw what you have been requested to draw to the best of your ability, if you do not like who you have been paired with please tell, Milykins, or Pimpypants and we will correct it.
4. Limit number of characters in request.
Because this is a time-limited annual event, please limit the amount of characters in your request to 5 Canon characters OR 4 OC/ OC and Canon characters. (Canon characters are people like Leo, Splinter, April, etc. OC is original character, like Mily's Mira or Pimpy's Andy.) This does NOT mean 9 characters. It means up to 4 or 5. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to ask.
5. Absolutely NO BASES.
Both fan-made bases and home-made bases will not be accepted for they do not often reflect the artist's drawing talent. There are some really nice TMNT bases out there, but there are tutorials out that can help you to draw turtle characters. We want to see your own work; references are fine, but please no tracing.
6. Just post the first page.
If you have written fan fiction or drawn a comic, please only post the first page/chapter to the 2014 gallery. If there are multiple chapters, link them in your artist comments.
7. Be a sneaky ninja!
Because this is a SECRET Santa, keep who you got a secret. Don't tell your friends and don't announce it. Please don't post WIP (Work in Progress) pictures either. Sneaky Ninja!
8. Turn it in!
Upload your entries to your gallery between December 14th - January 1st. Don't forget to let your Secret Santa know you've finished their gift. If you need extra time PLEASE note either Pimpypants or Milykins. Let us know so we can let your Secret Santa know.
If you have any questions, feel free to note us! We would rather have you ask if you are unsure than have you assume.
