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!

This particular art trade is for full color, full body pieces of art.

This isn't to say that other types of art are less valuable, just that they're not the focus for this particular art trade. In the past, we've done mono color art trades, bust only art trades, and I'm certain we'll have other themeing for others in future.

ENTRIES DUE BY JUNE 15TH (That's a SATURDAY)
ASSIGNMENTS SENT ON JUNE 16TH (That's a SUNDAY)
ART IS DUE ON JULY 7TH (That's a SUNDAY)


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 JUNE 15TH (That's a SATURDAY)
ASSIGNMENTS SENT ON JUNE 16TH (That's a SUNDAY)
ART IS DUE ON JULY 7TH (That's a SUNDAY)


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
    • 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 and the artwork is in good condition - paper that's been crumpled at the bottom of your book bag does not count as taking care to produce a nice piece for your assignee!
  • 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 didn't want to."
  • 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 exisiting piece of art.
    • Traced in part or in total
    • Dramatically over-referenced
    • Produced in whole or in-part via AI
    You will be banned from the art trade for at least two years, and possibly permanently.

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.

Do I have to have existing art/reference sheets for my character to submit them?
No, but in this case be certain they are very clearly described.

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.

Name: Yamajit/Death
Link: https://www.rprepository.com/c/Yamajit
Species: Personification of death
Gender expression: nonbinary/gender fluid.
Personality: Death is often hard to put in a box, for obvious reasons. Having 'lived' so long they tend to cycle through many personality traits over the centuries. Depression can set in and their demeanor is cold, quiet, and very loner-esque. A stint of enjoyment can kick in and make them one of the most lively people you know.
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: Death's preferred humanoid form is that of a 5'9" androgynous figure with a lithe but broad shouldered body, very small ambiguous chest, medium brown skin, perhaps too vibrant golden blonde hair that seemingly glows in the night, amber eyes, and depending on the time period little brown antennae that stick up from their vibrant hair.

Suggested environments: night club, fancy lounge, anywhere Yamajit is.

Has an animal form: a small housecat with darker points like a siamese cat and ears like a lynx.

Ooo! Art Trade! This should be fun, and good practice for ArtFight coming up!

Character Name: Traveler
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/character-site/1487507
Species: Human
Gender expression: Female (S/h)
Personality: Trav is bubbly and mischievous, a little overconfident with herself and is a little cocky. She has an overall "I'll be fine" attitude when visiting worlds, and it very rarely ends up well for her, because she's a bit of a trouble magnet. She holds those she calls friends close but when interacting with them she usually lightheartedly refers to them by idiot or dumb*ss.
I prefer to receive: Full Body
"Brief" physical description of the character: She is relatively thin and young and she has short fluffy auburn hair (flat on top, puffs out near the bottom), and sparkling blue eyes that glow when she creates a portal. Her portals are also blue, and have a galaxy like shape. She can be seen in a variety of outfits, but her most common outfit consists of a purple crop top and jeans, as well as a black overcoat that hangs low in the back.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Anywhere. She can quite literally make a portal to any location imaginable, so you can draw her anywhere you'd like. However, a common hand out spot in her own world is this city plaza with a fountain that she likes to visit.
Anything else we need to know: Well, besides the fact that she can create portals to any fictional world imagined, not much else to her. I mean, she's good friends with the Underverse cast, especially Ink and Dream, that's interesting I guess. Like I said, not much else to her.

I've been doubling down on my book, so I'm offering up my protagonist. :)

Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/c/heartseeker/
Species: human
Gender expression: masculine
Personality: Stoic, quiet, subservient, haunted
I prefer to receive: Try a full body! If you really can't, then a bust is okay.

Character Name: Valdemar Shadowspun
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials:
https://toyhou.se/24509418.valdemar-shadowspun
Species: Shadow Genie
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Grandiose, vain, and fussy. Talks big, but will probably cry a little if you’re mean to him.
I prefer to receive: Either full body or bust is fine! Or whatever!
Brief physical description of the character: Val is very tall for a humanoid, with an abnormally long neck and limbs—like someone took a jpeg of a guy and just stretched it. He has sharp teeth and nails, his ears are long and pointed, and his eyes are completely black (like a hamster’s). His “hair” is sort of flamelike, and tapers off into insubstantial smoke near the end. His skin is an ashen blue-grey. Regardless of whatever else he’s wearing, a large reddish gem is always embedded in his chest, just below the collar bone.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Star/night themed stuff is his jam, or anything with a decadent amount of fancy throw pillows.
Anything else we need to know: THIS is his most up-to-date reference image, but pop him in whichever outfit calls to you. Or make something up, even! :>
If I'm stil in time...

Character Name: Reyn
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Character Sheet | Costume Study (WIP)
Species: Anthro silver fox/maned wolf hybrid
Gender expression: Wilfull, mischevious, playful, rambuctious - ONLY if going with fancy clothes, terrified and miserable
Personality: A hurricane of a kid, he's very curious and easy going, but also somewhat shy around strangers. He absolutely adores scary things and has a morbid sense of humor. Adventurous and bold, he holds secret a more sensitive side, that he really only reveals when he can snuggle in his mother's arms.
I prefer to receive: (full body art/bust/either) Either
Brief physical description of the character: A two-years-old anthro fox kid, he has the fur coloring of an ordinary silver fox but with some brown and white additional markings similar to those of maned wolves. He has brown hair, and a tuft of dark-blue hair falling over his hair in a fringe. Wears mostly casual outfits, always ready to kick out his shoes, pull off his socks and leave muddy footprints everywhere.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Parks, gardens, or some futuristic high-society backdrop.
Anything else we need to know: His clothing items (eg. t-shirts, berets, etc) can range from kaiju-inspired to "Halloween" themed or feature SuperTonino (a rottweiler with a hero cape)

I have a convention this weekend, so I'd like to share my piece early. I drew a scene for Skyran of Bryn trying to convince Sahra to take this underground shortcut. I apologize that Sahra isn't quite full-body here!

HOLY--

This is SO COOL!!! you drew both of them!!! they're adventuring!! I love this little interaction between them, Shahra is so displeased by the cave idea that Bryn's offering. the lighting and the TEXTURE is gorgeous, its perfect!! no worries about not drawing both of them fullbody, you drew TWO characters and that more than makes up for it <3
I actually found it hilarious that RPJEANS was roleplaying Valdemar at the fae summer soiree and chose my character, Kellie, to dance with XD
Sorry its not my best work lol, but I had fun with mr lanky genie (if you want the image without my signature just dm me and ill give you it)

For cri86titanium: it's Reyn! Making a mess with his paints and drawing cool dogs :]
AAAAAAAHHHH ITS MY FOX BABYYYY <3
Thank you sooo much!! I absolutely love how you drew him! The playful spark in his eyes, the love for bright colors that end up more on him than on the paper - it's perfect!!! And of course he's already managed to discard his shoes and socks, how else!! XD You did such justice to him, I'm overjoyed!! :D Can I include him in his profile page pretty please??
