The Secret Santa finished with great success! All of you gave their present on time, thank you! Here are all the fashion artgifts:
This year FashionIllustrators is holding their first Secret Santa! But what does it means exactly? Secret Santa is a game where the members of a group are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift (thanks Wikipedia!). The gifts from deviantART' Secret Santa are usually in form of Art, and here in FashionIllustrators the gifts will be fashion illustrations and/or designs. The Secret Santa is only for members of this Group and the arrtworks created must follow the general rules and guidelines of FashionIllustrators
This is a SECRET gift exchange, so DO NOT contact the person you've been assigned UNTIL you can reveal your gift-art.
Please join this ONLY if you are sure you will have the time to make the artwork on the deadline! We could extend the deadline by popular demand, but keep in mind that if one member retires, then other member won't have their gift!
Now... the dates and how-tos!
Sign ups are closed! Matching are in progress, soon we'll send you a note, stay tunned!
To join the Secret Santa, comment on this journal until November 25th answering the next questions:
I'd like to give... - [please specify what kind of art would you do: illustration, designs, traditional or digital, girls and/or boys... ]
I'd like to receive... - [if you prefer a design, an illustration, a portrait... of if you're ok with any option]
I'd like to see... - [give two or three prompts to your Secret Santa: if you want to see your OC drawn, or a black & white only design, or anything from a specific brand...]
Would you be a backup Secret Santa? - [ this is just in case someone couldn't complete their part, to assure everyone's get their gift!]
Anything I don¡t want to see / last details to my Secret Santa - [ if there is something you don't like, say it here! or if you want to give a message/extra info to your Secret Santa ]

Would you be a backup Secret Santa? - Yes
Anything I don¡t want to see / last details to my Secret Santa I don't like the black&white combination
About your answers, keep in mind that you can edit the comments, so UNTIL NOV. 25th you can add information, links and other to your answers. Don't change it everyday, please xD but just in case, you have this option. After Nov. 25th each member will receive a copy of your comment, so later changes won't be considered!
Matchings: Notes Sent!
The matching are already done! Have fun with the next step: working on the illustrations!!
Once we have all the sign up questionnaires, we will match the participants trying to fit everyone's demands. We will send a note to each member with their match and their answers (so you don't have to come here all the time to read them). Please reply the note to make sure everyone read it!!
Self-explanatory You'll have around a month (from nov 25 to december 23) to work on your assigned gift. Remember that the illustrations need to follow the Group guidelines and quality standards, so do your best here! ^_^
Please keep in mind the deadlines and plan your work steps! In case you need more time OR you couldn't finish your artwork, send a NOTE to the group and we'll try to solve it
