Secret Santa Rules and Sign Up Information

RULES

1: Keep it secret. (It is not fun if you go telling everyone. Where is the surprise in that.)
2: If you sign up you need to do a picture. (You hurt a lot of people by treating this as a way to get free art. And you get a 5 year ban from the project to go along with it.)
3: No tracing or bases. (This will be treated the same not handing in a picture. Even if your found out after when all the pictures are posted. Traced pictures or bases are not accepted in the project.)



Sign Up Information:

Here is an example of how one would look if I filled one out for myself. This should give you a good idea of what is needed for each area of sign up.

Name: Timitu
E-mail: Nickletech@sympatico.ca
Links to Art: DeviantArt , LKFAA , MLKFAA
Religious Picture or Not?: Either is fine
Year in the Secret Santa: 13

Character Name: Nora
Species: Lion
Reference: http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/Nor...-Old-321488213
Extra Pictures: http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/Lev...2013-423683570 , http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/The-Lion-Trio-70242383 , http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/Nor...-Talk-48183806
Personality: Curious, Loner, (Teen) Dark/Unfriendly
Brief History: Nora is rescued as a newborn by Timitu, a nomad lion. Knowing he can not care for her but having ties to her family he rescues her and takes her to a pride that can care for her. Nora is befriended by a rather strange lion, Levar, and spends most of her life moving around. She is finally fully settled into a pride of her own and meets two close friends. Tabatha and Gee. As Nora gets older she falls in love with Levar and the two have three surviving cubs before her own death.

Character Name: Moson
Species: Lion
Reference: http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/Mos...Sheet-57946777
Extra Pictures: http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/Mos...age-1-68505427 , http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/Tomorrow-465348865 , http://timitu.deviantart.com/art/Mos...e-11-481848605
Personality: Quiet, Dreamer, Adventurous, Loner
Brief History: Moson was taken from his mother and father as a newborn. He grows up in Zee's Pride with a big destiny he will one day fulfill. Though as a young cub he is unaware of what his paw print birthmark means to the rest of the lions around him.

Anything Else you would like to say?: Nora and Moson are Mother and Son in case anyone wishes to do them together. Though Nora is dead not long after her cubs are born. So it would not be awkward to have them separate.




If you have any questions or comments about sign up or rules please comment here and let me know. I will do my best to answer questions about such and taken comments to heart if you wish something changed or like something.
Just keep in mind this is all public. Do not leave any comments directly related to the person who you are drawing for after the names go out.

Hi Timitu,

Since I am new to this, I have a quick question about the rules (sort of.) When it is asked if the person wants a religious picture or not, and they say "no," does that mean things like Christmas trees, lights, and Santa hats should be excluded? Or should there just be no direct reference to Jesus/God or other religious figures that go along with the holidays?

That is an excellent question Impano. No one has ever asked that but it is a very good question to ask because both can fit into the same category. This will be added next year to sign ups to sign ups to help set it apart.

Religious normally falls under religion and religious stories. Like your character following a bright star to see baby Jesus or any religious saying on the picture. Bible quotes etc.

Things that have sort of escaped from the religious side, like Santa hats, Christmas trees (which I know actually are still religious but lots of people don't think of them as very religious) etc from other religious as well, along with the winter theme of the holidays (even if we do not all have snow.) So anything associated with the holiday outside of the religious aspect is still safe to use.

If you want it to be strictly like you might get an art trade, without any holiday theme at all, add it to the "Anything Else you would like to say?" area.

I hope that helps. Thank you for bringing up a great question. It will be brought up in future sign ups as well.

Okay. This is a quick post for Secret Santa members only. Just wanted to say thank you for your hard work this year. If there is any suggestions or comments you wish to make about the project itself please e-mail me. We have just completed the 13th time of doing it here and I have not changed too much over the years. Because everything is working on my end. But I do not always know how it is on your end. Any suggestions can be made here or in an e-mail if you wish.

Ok so you have your picture and can not wait to share the one you made with the world. Hold on though. It still could be an hour before all the e-mails are out. So please hang tight and check the link below. At the top it will announce if you can post your picture or not.

Just updating and I will use this post to update sign up information based on the current project if it is different from anything above.

Here is an example as well as description to each thing you need to fill out to sign up for the project. If you do not understand one this is where you will come to see how to do it.

--------------------

Artist Name: Timitu
(Simple enough... The name you wish to go by for this project)

E-mail: timitusanta@gmail.com
(You can PM me if you wish to keep your e-mail between us but you will need one to take part.)

Website: LKFAA , DA
(It may just be one link, it may be 10 links. Please keep it PG rated and we are looking for places people can see more of your artwork.)

Religious Picture: I don't mind. Any religion is fine.
(Basically if you are okay with someone doing a religious themed picture for you than you can say so here. This is 100% up to you. And it will not guarantee a religious picture. If the person drawing for you feels they would like to and you are okay with it than this is how you let them know.)

First Secret Santa?: No
(Is this your first time taking part in the project with me. Many other Secret Santas are out there. But is this your first time at this one. Mine may be different than some others.)


Character Name: Moson
(The name of your character. Simple enough.)

Species: Lion
(if your character is a made up species please also list another species they are close to resembling as well just so people know roughly what kind of character it looks like.)

Reference: http://fanart.lionking.org/Picture.jsp?pictureid=629635
(A link to your characters reference sheet. This is still needed.)

Character Page: http://fanart.lionking.org/Character...racterid=49272
(If you have more than one you can add another one or two in too. While your characters information may be on this page please still fill out the last two parts as well so your person can make a quick look. They may not want to read all about every character of yours if they only plan to draw one.)

Extra Pictures: 1 / 2 / 3
(This is not required. If you do not have a character page with several pictures though you may want to have something like this. They can be art you did or art done for you of your character. It gives people a chance to see your character outside a character sheet setting. Lets try to say no more than 5 extra pictures though.)

Personality: Quiet, Adventurous, Daydreamer, Loner (Give 3 - 5 words that best fit that character. Especially when someone is trying to think of a good song to go with the character this is what will probably help the most when getting the best fit.)

Brief History: Both of Moson's parents are dead. He is being raised by the lion that killed his father but does not know it. Moson's birthmark is a paw print that has been passed down for generations. This paw print is a mark from the gods so those alive knew who the living protectors were against the evil Danny. Moson's father, Levar, visits him often as he is growing up.
(This is meant to set a bit of a scene. Don’t put too much stuff in here. If you have a character page somewhere most places allow for full descriptions and links to stories there.)


Anything to say: Have fun.
(If you have anything you wish to say you can here. This will be your only chance to talk directly to the person drawing for you. PLEASE do not request they draw more than one character. You can suggest options like saying "Moson is Levar's son and they hang out together at night sometimes in case you are interested in doing more than one". Not everyone will have time to do more than one character and that is perfectly okay. I am sure you rather get one character that they were inspired to do, rather than get a forced picture they did because they had to.)


--------------------

If you have any questions feel free to PM me or e-mail me on here.
