artist_Elf.pngWe're doing an official RPR art trade. Please read the rules carefully before signing up!

In this art trade, artists post information about a character (or characters, if they want to give the other person a choice of things to draw) they would like to receive gift art of. At a specified cut off date, submissions stop and each artist is randomly assigned someone else in the exchange. Then each artist draws the thing they got, and on a certain day, everyone exchanges what they drew. So you do art for someone else, and someone else gives you art. It's like secret Santa, but with art!

ENTRIES DUE BY NOVEMBER 25TH (That's a Friday)
ASSIGNMENTS SENT ON NOVEMBER 26TH (That's a Saturday)
ART IS DUE ON DECEMBER 19TH (That's a Monday)


PLEASE BE CERTAIN YOU CAN COMPLETE YOUR ASSIGNED PIECE IN THE TIME ALLOWED.
If you're not sure, just play it safe and don't enter. There's always next year!

I repeat:

ENTRIES DUE BY NOVEMBER 25TH (That's a Friday)
ASSIGNMENTS SENT ON NOVEMBER 26TH (That's a Saturday)
ART IS DUE ON DECEMBER 19TH (That's a Monday)


Check your calendars carefully!

There will be a one week grace period for posting art in case of emergencies. If you don't turn in your art by the end of that one week grace period, you might not be able to participate next year. It's only fair that everyone who does art should get art in return.

This art trade is open to artists of all skill levels!
We are no longer dividing artists into "dabbler" and "devotee" categories. We do ask that this not be your first or second attempt at drawing, but if you've been drawing for roughly a year or more and are willing to do your very best, you're welcome here. Participants should go in with the expectation that the art they receive will be in an unknown style and completed by someone with an unknown skill level, and be excited to get a nice surprise whatever it turns out to be. If you think you may be upset if your gift art turns out to come from an artist who is not as experienced as yourself, or who uses a style of art that is not to your taste, this is not the art trade for you.

Remember, the art you will be given is a GIFT. Someone did their very best to capture your character to brighten up your new year. Please don't get angry if they made mistakes; they did their very best to the best of their ability and understanding to make you something nice, just like you are going to do for whoever you are assigned. :)

I'm not good at drawing (humans/animals/robots/reptiles/something else), can I specify that I don't want to be paired with someone with a character like that?
Nope. If you get thrown a curveball, you're going to have to do your best. Stretch out of your comfort zone! ;)

Is there a risk I could be paired with someone I have blocked?
No. Our matcher is largely random, but it DOES take into account people you have blocked and will not give such assignments. Please be certain you have blocked participants you want to be certain you are not assigned to draw for under any circumstances, and leave them blocked until you receive your art trade assignment.

What are the requirements of the artwork?
  • The following types of artworks can be submitted:
    • Digital drawing/painting/3d modeling
    • Hand-drawn or hand-painted items, so long as you have a method of taking a well-lit photo or good scan of your artwork. The photographed piece must be in good condition.
    • Sculpture/models you have created from scratch and painted or otherwise colored, so long as you have a method of taking a well-lit photo of your artwork. The photographed piece must be in good condition.
  • Please do full body artworks, unless the person you're assigned has specified they are okay with receiving a bust/head portrait.
  • Drawings should be in color, unless there is a strong, articulated reason why you made an artistic choice to do black and white. It needs to be something like "it matched the noir flavor of the character and I was really trying to capture that mood," or "I am legally color blind and was afraid I would use the wrong colors," not "I ran out of time" or "I was too lazy."
  • Backgrounds are not required, but you're welcome to include one if the muse moves you.
  • Please make sure your artwork is appropriate for posting on the public forums, so PG-13, non-nude, etc. :)
  • Artwork you submit must be your own original work.. If your piece is found to be:
    • Directly stolen, or simply a recolor of an existing piece of art.
    • Traced in part or in total
    • Dramatically over-referenced
    • AI generated in whole or in part, or AI "finished"
    You will be banned from the art trade for at least two years, and possibly permanently.

The AI rule above is new, so please take special note of it.

Does it have to be a surprise? What happens if I want to ask my assigned person questions about their character?
Many people like to keep their art trade assignments a surprise, and do a big reveal on the final day. If this is you, you can have me pass on your questions anonymously to your art trade recipients.

However, that's not required. If you prefer, you can ask your assigned person questions about their character directly. You're even free to post your art trade artwork early if you like! This is especially encouraged for those of you who are afraid you will forget or not be online around the time of the final art trade due date ;)

What happens if I did my part for the art trade, but the person who was assigned me goes AWOL?
If you did your part of the art trade, but don't receive anything in return by the deadline or after the grace period, we'll find another artist who will make sure you get a piece of gift art too.

What happens if I sign up but then have a BIG HUGE EMERGENCY that is going to prevent me from participating?
If this happens, please let me know ASAP so I can figure something out.

I've read the rules and I'M IN! How do I sign up?
To enter, fill out the following form for each character you'd like to offer as a possibility for the artist assigned to you. Remember, no matter how many characters you submit, the person assigned you is only required to draw a single character.

During the night her skin is a dark purple, her freckles glow white, her hair glows white and her eyes glow much more strongly.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): Temple, Glade, Moonscape, Her statue garden
Anything else we need to know: Please keep in mind which form you are drawing. Don't draw her night form in broad daylight or vice versa! Daya tends to dress in whites and purples and favors loose, flowing fabrics. She always has that purple crystal on a strap around her neck.

If you've listed more than one character, is it okay for your
characters to be drawn together if the artist wants:
There is a canon AU where Lucifer and Daya know each other so you could draw them together. Rix... Eh, she's a crazy meme character. Go nuts.

Character Name: Adlai
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Here, content warning though for some potential gross stuff.
Species: Dhampir; half vampire, half human.
Gender expression: Fluid! Adlai does not identify in any direction. They can best be described as androgynous.
Personality: Adlai is a trader of secrets and information. They are very stealthy and subversive and ambitious. Their main goals are to eat (dreams and. some other less pg-13 things) and to have status in whatever society they're currently inhabiting. They are, in essence, very spiderlike and manipulative.
I prefer to receive: Either!
Brief physical description of the character: Bald; Adlai suffers from alopecia universalis, so they have no body hair whatsoever to speak of. This includes eyebrows and eyelashes. Silver eyes that are very reflective. Wears a goth's dream in terms of makeup and clothes; smudgy black kohl around the eyes and on the mouth, a shadowy look that blurs out around all of the edges almost like a ghost would. Black clothes, always; thigh-length heeled boots and lace stockings, short skirts or shorts, tunic tops or otherwise. Feel free to go hog-wild here. They wear lots of silver jewelry as well, only piercings being their ears, with general morbid themes (they have a shiny pair of guillotine earrings).
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): If you so choose, Adlai has really dark quarters in their home. Very dim lighting, very shadowy, lots of black and purple. You can take any liberties you'd like with this, and with the background just generally; I am in no way picky.
Anything else we need to know: Adlai doesn't have any bite-marks from being turned into a vampire, so no dots on the neck here! They were born as they are. Adlai cultivates night-blooming plants as well, and is an avid little nighttime gardener. Adlai has sunlight sensitivity, so depictions in the daylight are a general no-go (unless you really feel motivated to draw them in their sunlight-garb, which I describe in their profile...)



Character Name: Ivo
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Here!
Species: Norwegian Forest cat
Gender expression: Male
Personality: A kindly old cat wizard! Ivo is nearing his seventies but his pace has in no way slowed. Intellectual mind that looooves puzzles and specifically cursebreaking! Any curse at all, he's your cat. Very fatherly but very fiery; he has been known to bring many an underling to tears with his heated outbursts. Quite apologetic about those, though; he is ultimately fair, kind, and dedicated to magic. Just very passionate.
I prefer to receive: Either!
Brief physical description of the character: The fur is VOLUMINOUS, please see the actual breed of Norwegian Forest kitties for reference of just how floofy. His fur is thick and and full of lots of colors like cream, orange, tan, chocolate, you name it. If it's a natural color, he has it (save for black). The fur around his neck and on his chest is just a little bit longer than the rest of his body and it suggests the appearance of a Gandalfian wizard's beard. He wears white dress shirts with decorative waistcoats (gold threading mostly) that are usually either black, red, or indigo in color. Trousers and boots that are slightly pointed, too, as well as different varieties of wizard's hats (described in more detail on his profile; he doesnt have to wear it). Also wears a cloak sometimes!
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) A library or study would be nice, with lots of gold and red themes around. I am not picky, my only suggestion is that he is SO CLUTTERED AND MESSY
Anything else we need to know: He is a wizard, and can perform a wide variety of spells! He also really likes clockwork things, especially little critters; he makes some of his own that are enchanted.



Character Name: Enosh
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Here!
Species: Automaton
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Very businesslike businessman. Enosh is a black market weapons dealer. If there's something you need, he can get it for you. Resourceful, intimidating due to his size and appearance, and very ruthless when he wants to be. Enosh is also very kind and generous, especially towards those who need help. He has many fledglings under his wing, so to speak, and keeps close and careful eyes on them, doing his utmost to help and support them as best as he can in what he sees as a big-brother type role, but in reality he functions more like a father.
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: 6'11" metal behemoth. Pale blue-silver in color with clockwork eyes that are colored with yellow and blue stained glass. He wears warcoats (think Elder Maxson from Fallout 4) over tailored suits that tend to be black or grey. He is a very dapper individual, and very very large. No hair and wears a nice hat a good portion of the time.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Any really, no preference! He hangs around a lot of different places. He does have a few warehouses with junk everywhere in them if that's helpful.
Anything else we need to know: Nothing I can think of!



Character Name: Ove
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Here!
Species: Forest spirit
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Very oaflike. Ove is a huge softie, gentle and sweet, a pacifist. His intellect is limited but his emotional capacity runs deep, and he chooses kindness over absolutely everything. He tends to wounded forest creatures, provides protection for weary travelers, and guides those who find themselves lost in the forest back onto the right track. He is very much a guardian of the forest he inhabits, and a very friendly giant despite his appearance and size.
I prefer to receive: Either!
Brief physical description of the character: A hulking (~15') green guy (pun not intended) with a huge rack of twisty horns. He is covered in shaggy fur that is a deep forest green color, his horns just a bit lighter. This fur is home sometimes to little creatures, and often to things like sticks, leaves, and even the occasional flower. His mouth is not visible even when speaking or eating, buried in this fur, and all that is discernible are his little round black eyes.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): The forest! It's where he lives.
Anything else we need to know: He likes bugs and butterflies, they land on him a lot. He eats bark and grass and fruit. Uhhhh. He sleeps a lot and hibernates in winter.




If you've listed more than one character, is it okay for your
characters to be drawn together if the artist wants (yes or no): Ivo created Enosh, so drawing them together would be kind of cool. Enosh and Adlai know each other but do not like each other; they use each other for information. In short: only if you'd like to!
*MANIFESTS OUT OF THIN AIR*

Here we go! This time, I'm offering characters who have the least amount of art. Pick your poison:

Personality: Mischievous, well-mannered, clumsy, disorganized, and outgoing.
I prefer to receive: Anything!
Brief physical description of the character: A pre-teen girl with scruffy white hair, pale red eyes, and round glasses. She wears an oversized royal purple robe, with sleeves so long they cover her hands.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): The great outdoors, or any fantasy-type setting!
Anything else we need to know: Bailey is a shapeshifter! Drawing her as any kind of beast is allowed and encouraged, just remember to keep it albino and we're good!

I prefer to receive: Anything!
Brief physical description of the character: A tall woman with tanned skin and silvery hair. Wears a pristine labcoat, a blue v-neck blouse, and gray dress pants.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): Any futuristic, sci-fi, or space-themed setting would be perfect!
Anything else we need to know: If you want to, you can draw her under Elliot's control! Appearance hardly changes, aside from dark sclerae, white irises, and the loose strand of hair on her head resembles one of Elliot's antenna.

Species: Quarridae (wingless jewel dragon thing)

Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): Any fantasy setting or mountainous range would work well!
Anything else we need to know: Terrane is trapped in a pendant, so feel free to use that as you wish.


If you've listed more than one character, is it okay for your
characters to be drawn together if the artist wants (yes or no):
You may draw Bailey and Terrane together! (Just a heads up, they don't like each other.) If you plan on drawing Eleanor, please draw her solo!

I'M GONNA DO IT THIS YEAR!!

Character Name: Corbeau
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Here (Contains barbie nudity/base and all tattoos on transparency) and RPR profile (contains sensitive themes and cursing, but all nudity is thumbnailed/censored and labeled as such)
Species: Discentem Corvidae (Crow shapeshifter that can take on human form)
Gender expression: Femme
Personality: Ostensibly outgoing, gregarious, and lewd but secretly a repressed, emotionally constipated mess who cries in private. Does chainsmoking count as a personality trait?
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: Twiggier than a tree in winter. No curves and only a hint of a chest. 5'3". Hair goes down to her waist and is iridescent raven black with a pop of pure white springing from the top of her head. Eyes are a blue so pale, they almost look silver. So many tattoos. So so many. Snake bite studs, several ear piercings, a septum ring, and a dermal piercing below her left eye.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) She's played in a modern setting (currently in Ireland), but could be in just about any environment otherwise. She works in a massive, centuries old archive full of books, is a professor at a university, and also frequents an old Irish pub.
Anything else we need to know: She loves leather. Like really, really loves it. Some clothing refs are included, but basically go 90s goth with a splash of punk and you've got the vibe (or if that's too difficult, oversized sweaters and PJ pants with a messy bun are also fine). Keep it as easy and low stress as you need it to be! I'm not picky.

Character Name: Kamala
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Here (contains barbie nudity/base)
Species: Zykla (Canid anthro, closed species)
Gender expression: Femme
Personality: Literal sunshine incarnate, the nicest person you will ever meet. The physical manifestation of that special tape stopping up the leak on the large tank of water. Masks just about every single emotion with a smile and cheer.
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: 5' nothing pear-shaped canine woman with thick thighs and a mess of short ginger curls. Freckles, freckles everywhere. Her extremely fluffy tail is longer than she is tall and prehensile, and her body is dotted with brown and orange rosettes. Fur is brown, accented with cream, and her ears are very fluffy at the base and a foot tall. Her sclerae are black, and her irises are jade. She wears a special collar (included in refs) at all times.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Hookah lounge, Moroccan architecture, moonlit clearing, beach
Anything else we need to know: Worships Luna, a moon deity. Anything moon-related would be extremely on brand. She is from India, so clothing associated with that culture (especially sari) is appropriate.

If you've listed more than one character, is it okay for your
characters to be drawn together if the artist wants (yes or no)
No
