    Come one, come all! Picasso's and beginning artists alike! Welcome to the signup thread for this year's Smeargle's Studio Secret Santa!
    Let's get things underway:

    Drawing Deadline:

    December 10th

    Sign Up Deadline:

    Sign Ups Closed!

    How To Participate:

    A Secret Santa is basically a big anonymous gift giving, for those who don't know; but in our case it will be a big anonymous art trade! To get involved, shoot me a PM saying what you want somebody to draw for you. By doing this, you're also agreeing that you will in turn draw the request of somebody else- so do not sign up if you don't think you'll be able to finish a drawing. You'll have a generous time given to complete your work (count on about 3 weeks), and I don't want anybody to be a flake this year.
    Once the sign ups are complete, I'll send you a PM containing what you are to be drawing. Draw this within the deadline, and send it back to me. That's all you have to do!

    General Rules:


    • The request should be Pokemon-related - Crossovers are generally alright (ie. Charmander in a Mario costume), but it absolutely must have something to do with Pokemon. If you must do a crossover, the less obscure, the better.
    • No insane requests - Self explanatory, don't break somebody's back, ok?
    • The request must be sent via forum PM - Letting me know on IRC what you want or that you finished isn't good enough!
    • Do NOT tell anybody what request you got, or what request you sent - The point of a Secret Santa is anonymity!
    • Do not request anything questionable - Nothing explicitly violent or sexual. Attempt to slide by this rule and you will be banned from participating!
    • You may change your request at any time, until deadline - So you don't have to tear your hair out thinking of something. Once the deadline for sign ups has transpired, however, you're on your own!
    • Get your drawing done - Like I said before, please do not be this asshole!
    • Digital and Traditional Art is allowed - I've gotten this question a few times so to clear it up, traditional media is definitely allowed!



    Don't feel shy, Christmas is about being the spirit of giving and the thought; even those who have never picked up a pencil can join in the merry making with the old pros! Have fun, and good luck!

    I heard through the grapevine that you were organizing the SS this year and I was going to go rant about you not making a thread and only accepting PM applications but it seems there was no need~

    Even though I'm no where near the best or most dedicated artist here, I would too like to give this a shot.

    In, does the quality of the artwork count? (like how well the art is drawn, how the quality of the picture is, because I have a really, really crappy camera so it might come out in a shitty quality)

    EDIT: Just saying, whoever gets me please do something thats not complicated! (Like a Drunk Arceus dressed like Solid Snake or something like that)
