It's that time of the year again! Well, not the one you're usually used to, but people showed interest in giving secret santa a shot in the middle of July. Let's see how it goes!

186173

Sign up deadline: August 1st
Drawing deadline: TBD
Participating:
So, most of you should be aware of the concept of Secret Santa, an anonymous gift giving; in our case though the gifts are all replaced with images, so consider it a big, anonymous art trade! If you'd like to join in, make sure to send me a private message on smogon writing what you'd like somebody to draw for you. You can feel free to drop a post in this thread letting others know that you will be participating, but do keep in mind that sending me the PM is a must. Sending in a request also means that you'll be drawing someone else's request as well, so please don't sign up if you don't think you'll be able to actually finish the drawing, because you're making things less enjoyable for others as well as making things more difficult for me and helper elves. Don't do that. Anyways, once we reach the sign up deadline you'll get a PM from me containing the request you'll need to draw, which once it's completed you need to send back to me. Simple as that!

General Rules:
  • The request should be Pokemon-related - This is still a pokemon forum, so with that in mind crossovers are allowed as long as it's not too obscure.
  • No insane requests - You wouldn't want to be tortured by a mad request either, so don't do this to others. Keep it manageable.
  • The request/finished drawing must be sent via forum PM to me, tiki - Letting me know on Discord won't do the trick, since I'll probably forget about it.
  • Do NOT tell anybody what request you got, or what request you sent - That's the whole point of Secret Santa after all!
  • Do not request anything questionable - Nothing explicitly sexual or violent. Those who attempt to slide past this rule will be banned from participating!
  • You may change your request at any time, until sign ups deadline - So you don't have to tear your hair out thinking of something. Once the deadline for sign ups has transpired, however, it's too late for any changes!
  • Get your drawing done - As I already pointed out, don't join if you can't actually finish your drawing in time. Someone is trying hard to finish up the the drawing you requested, so try to respect their effort as well as the person whose request you received.
  • Digital and Traditional Art is allowed - In case you were wondering, traditional artwork is just fine as well!
If you're interested in being awesome by helping with covering for the flakes (the ones who don't get their images done), feel free to shoot me a PM.


Oh and don't hesitate to join if you don't think you're good or skilled enough to draw something. The effort is what matters the most, and we're not all art gods in the end. Just have fun and good luck!
 
Oooh, sounds interesting! Imma get in as well! :D

(Question: will the artists be allowed to share their work at the end, or it’s everything kept… well, secret?)

Everything will be posted in this thread at the end, you can check some of the previous Secret Santa threads for reference!

Also reminder that there's only a few days left to send your requests in! Don't forget about it.

Just a heads up that we'll be extending the deadline to September 6th! Some people asked for the extra time and since there is a good portion of people who haven't sent anything in yet, i hope the extension helps.

Another reminder for those who haven't sent anything yet, if you think you won't be able to finish your request on time, please at least let me know in advance so i can fill in for you. It's much better than not letting me know at all!

Shoutouts to TruSwagblu and JustoonSmitts, you're both terrible. Hope you enjoy your ct/avatar for the following month!

Ended up really dragging this one out, sorry guys! These past couple of weeks have been super tiring for me so i haven't really had the strength to do much for smogon, but thank you for being patient with me! Here's the next round of gifts.

Hello Santa,

For this Summer I want an image of Alola's Puppy Surfing lessons. With some pupper Pokemon trying to learn how to surf with their trainers.

Requirements:
Dog Pokemon in base stage only.
Puppies weak to water are scared/reluctant otherwise they are excited.
At least 2 puppies.

Thanks

I'd like a fat Psyduck holding an umbrella (thinking Totoro-inspired but I'll leave that up to the artist).

TO: brzozod526
FROM: HONK

For my request, I'd like some toy Pokemon a la Pokemon Rumble if that's alright. Artist's choice on which or how many, (although mons from gen 5 would be nice, Blast was my first 3DS game and it holds a dear place in my heart).

Posting more tomorrow!
