artist_Elf.pngIT'S FINALLY BACK! We're doing an official RPR art trade. Please read the rules carefully, as they have changed since the last time we did this!

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 and in the summer!

ENTRIES DUE BY JUNE 18TH (That's a Friday)
ART IS DUE ON JULY 10th (That's a Saturday)


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 18TH
ART IS DUE ON JULY 10th


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
  • 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 exisiting piece of art.
    • Traced in part or in total
    • Dramatically over-referenced
    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.

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.

He tends to dress in button ups, vests, slacks, oxford-esc. shoes. His replacement jaw, made of metal, can 'unhinge' further than a natural jaw and show his ridiculously long tongue. Often found covered in a bit of blood, but also pretty cleanly when possible, so either works for him.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Dark, gritty, could be something like a dark, foreboding club scene or something similar (ex: John Wick 1) c: Nothing bright or joyous, he's a generally evil character
Anything else we need to know: Additional References
Feel free to draw him covered in blood or not (so long as it follows the rules of the trade I suppose ^^; ); He always is wearing a set of rosary beads - these might be around his neck, usually semi-hidden under his shirt, or he's dabbling with them in his hand...

Personality: Very curious, intelligent, playful, if a bit lazy - but ultimately still an animal-esc being, so not much in the way of "Higher intelligence"
I prefer to receive: Fullbody or Bust <3
Brief physical description of the character: Long, lithe, appears more serpent like in nature if it weren't for the legs. Has two sets of legs more akin to something mammalian, save the lack of fur, and two sets of six legs more akin to something like a giant insect, though again, texture is different and more aquatic based. The use of these secondary insect-like appendages has yet to be determined aside from aiding in movement. Leviathan has ear shells, several sets of horns, fins, and a large tail that it seems to use as a weapon.

Anything else we need to know: When under the influence of the demonic entity in his body, Xeha’s eyes shift to gold, and his personality becomes warped- sadistic and cocky, he is willing to inflict wounds to himself in order to win. Do with this information as you please.

Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Toyhouse and ArtFight!
Species: Fuschia-blooded Alternian troll
Gender expression: non-binary
Personality: Nervous and shy. Has a lot on their shoulders but is expressive around those they adore.
I prefer to receive: Full body!

Suggested environments: Ocean and forests. Cinnan doesn't enjoy cities/busy places too often. Libraries are good too.
Anything else we need to know: A lot of their information can be gleaned off their ref and profiles. You're welcome to choose an outfit off of the art done of them or make your own, but if you do, please don't expose their grubscars (the fuschia marks on their waist) as it's ooc. Cinnan also doesn't wear ponytails plain. Don't hesitate to ask questions!

Character Name: Noccio Sirvex
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Toyhouse and ArtFight!

I prefer to receive: Both are fine!

I prefer to receive: Full body!
Brief physical description of the character: Curvy and cute, his hair is incredibly long and often in a ponytail. Has no gendered limit to clothing but prefers things that are easy to move (read: fight) in. Skirts, sweaters, and other typical cute clothes are a go to. Often wears pastels due to his complexation.
Suggested environments: Libraries or parks. Sangris likes nature a lot.
Anything else we need to know: Sangris' white streak is not dye! It's natural. His eyes are galaxies and he has no pupil. With that in mind, they change color due to his emotions, so if you decide to change the color, please make sure his expression accurately reflects it.

You're totally welcome to DM me about anything! I know my characters may have some things about them that can seem confusing and I would rather just have things be cleared up instead of something large forgotten and I get upset by it.

If you've listed more than one character, is it okay for your
characters to be drawn together if the artist wants?

Yes! But only Noccio and Cinnan. Sangris has no connection to either of them so please don't draw them together <3
Let's give this a shot.

Anything else we need to know: Dream Form: Looks something like a shadowy were-raven with purple glow coming from inside. Could be portrayed as a shadow.

Character Name: Uvasi
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/character-site/1455728
Species: Nyctoran - Mranuvas
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Vain, mischievous, playful, evasive, flirty, trickster
I prefer to receive: either
Brief physical description of the character: Looks like a dark kitsune or fox spirit, human with fox ears and 3-9 tails. Fur is black and fades into purple, tipping off with an eerie blue. Has iridescent eyes of blue and purple. Not keen on wearing clothing that covers too much of his body. Often hides face behind a black kitsune mask with purple and blue markings and may pull it aside to reveal one eye or half his face.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) A dark forest with eerie yet delightful asian-like charms and talismans hanging about or someplace that suits his flirty side.
Anything else we need to know: Uvasi can create clones of himself with his fox fire. He may be a flirt but he can be an equally cruel trickster. His mask doesn't have to be on but if it is, it can change it's expression.

Character Name: Gavin
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/character-site/1436044

Gender expression: Male

Anything else we need to know: He can use ice to create armor, wings, and other things to help him fight or defend.


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)
Yes. Pavol has issued a hunt to wipe out Valra but Nasr has made it a personal goal to destroy/annoy Luminaries. In short Pavol with any of the dark Nyctorans, Nasr or Uvasi, could be fun.
Nasr and Uvasi could find kinship in their dark element but the the Valra's love of weaving nightmares vs the Mranuvas' flirty nature could be an interesting scenario.
Gavin isn't apart of Nyctoria but might be fun to see his caring and naive nature paired with Uvasi's love of being pampered and mischievous mind.
I'm excited to see who I get matched to!

Only these characters can be drawn together

Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Academia, space stations, anything sci-fi or hackery.

Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Anywhere! The dragon is my mascot/online persona, so it can be depicted in ways that seem "out of character," such as sitting at a computer, etc.
Anything else we need to know: It no longer wears the Thor's hammer pendant.

If you've listed more than one character, is it okay for your characters to be drawn together if the artist wants?: No thank you!
Oh this sounds like fun! Are we allowed to request characters we don't have a profile for yet? If they have to be on here that's okay too!
I'm excited about this!! It looks really fun.

Character Name: Old God
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/c/oldgod (Visual reference is also included)
Species: Deity (They take the form of an anthro cat)
Gender expression: Mostly neutral, though she leans somewhat to feminine expression. Character uses she/they pronouns.

I prefer to receive: Any is fine!

They wear a white gown that eventually turns black, and they have one feathery wing and one bat-like wing. Additionally, they have one fluffy tail and one impish tail to compliment this.

On the ends of her limbs and and ears are somewhat more purple, her eyes a dark blue with light undertones. She is about as fluffy as a winter leopard, her hair never being less than long.

Sure!! Both are acquaintances with each other while Moonwisp can sometimes get under Old God's skin, so feel free to do so!.

If you have a very thorough description of them, I'm okay with it.
Character Name: Alex
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Click here! He has an RPR but there is mature artwork on it.
Species: Anthro Tiger
Gender expression: Cismale
Personality: Soft, gentle, kind.
I prefer to receive: Whatever goes!
Brief physical description of the character: Best shown in his ref - short and thin with gentle, youthful features. He is, notably, an adult. Just a very small one!
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): He can be drawn either 1600-1700's era or modern - I've included some refs for both.
Anything else we need to know: He does not have a full tail anymore as shown in his main ref - the modern one at the bottom (in the blue sweater) where it's a bit more than a stump is accurate. He has quite humanoid features for an anthro character so hopefully he's not too much trouble!

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):
Just the one character!
Ooooh, this looks exciting!

Character Name: Hades
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/character-site/1455278

Her fur is primarily orange, her underbelly, nose bridge and talons are yellow, while her arms and legs are black. She has a shaggy mane of red fur, and freckles on her face. Don't forget the horns and tail!
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) A dark forest, please!
Anything else we need to know: There's a fullbody image on her profile (in the Guest Area), if you need a better reference than the one I've given! Also, if you struggle with drawing her fur markings, you can draw her in a pink nightgown instead!

Character Name: Mixie
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/character-site/1456199
Species: Demon
Gender expression: Female
Personality: Voracious, aggressive, and deranged. Normally comes off as charismatic or happy, though don't let her twisted clown smile fool you.
I prefer to receive: Either!
Brief physical description of the character: Short and thin. Has yellow hair, black horns, and pointed ears. Has four arms and gray werewolf legs. She has red eyes, pale skin, and a long black demon tail. Clothing-wise, she wears a black crop top and shorts, along with a yellow jacket with short sleeves.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Something dark and creepy!
Anything else we need to know: This is completely optional, but if you'd like to draw some blood and body horror, then feel free to do so! Also, while she doesn't have a fullbody image on her profile yet, I do intend on adding one, so keep your eyes peeled!

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)
Go ahead! Both characters are acquaintances; Hades is a bit more on the friendly side.
Let's give this a try!

Scion of the Reaper, The Man in Red, Reaver
Character Name: Vexel Sparrow
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Gaze upon, and despair...
Species: Human/Ethereal Being
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Brooding, mysterious. Filled with Edge. Go wild!
I prefer to receive: (full body art/bust/either) Any!
Brief physical description of the character: A tall, thin man often seen in a red/maroon two piece suit. Always covers his face in a metal mask depicting a simple line for a mouth, and two narrow, furrowed eyes.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Just about any environment. Reaver gets about!
Anything else we need to know: Being mysterious and ambiguous is his forte, life as an immortal gets rather dull when you're always to the point. Only his lost wife and his beloved daughter, Hailey, has ever seen his face, and he fully intends to maintain that. Also very fond of tea.

Or...

Blessed by Antigamus, Traveller of Universes, Bird-brain
Character Name:Angeliko Skylight
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Make sure to bow! He's a king, after all...
Species: Angelic
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Adventurous, hot-headed, arrogant
I prefer to receive: (full body art/bust/either) Any!
Brief physical description of the character: At a quick glance, Angel looks like a human. Two arms, two legs, a head. But the first distinct difference is the two bird-like wings sprouting from his shoulder blades. Or, rather singular wing. He lost one and he's had a robotic replacement. Arm too! His angelic heritage also gives him a natural wacky hair colour, white with green flecks. He lost his left eye after an attack against a mechanical tiger!
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Both fantasy and sci-fi style backgrounds work. He used to live in a sci-fi world, before being transported to a more fantastical one.
Anything else we need to know: He loves his wife very much! Many years in the military gives him some good weapon skills, but something about swords just won't click with him. Because of that, punching things tends to work more in his favor.

As a note, I would request that these characters not be drawn together. Reaver has no interest in Angeliko, and Angeliko doesn't know Reaver exists beyond myths and ghost stories.

If you have questions about these characters, don't hesitate to ask Laineie! She is intimately familiar with these characters, and knows just as much as I do about them!
Sounds super exciting! While I have created none of the art for my characters, I have reference images of them on their pages!


Character Name: Abigail Welsh
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials:
Her preferred appearance! But her page is here.
Species: Nekomimi (Mostly human with cat ears on top of her head and a fluffy tail behind her)
Gender expression: Female
Personality: Abigail is pretty timid, but enjoys doing her best to try and help others. A cheerful being.
I prefer to receive: Either full body or bust!
Brief physical description of the character: Abigail isn't very tall, about 5 feet 4 inches. Her long hair is a rosy pink, matching in color with her wide and innocent hues. She typically tends to wear flowy dresses that don't really show off her figure all that much (cozy baggy sweaters work too). Because she tends to be timid her gestures are never very exaggerated and she often keeps to herself.
Suggested environments: (if the artist feels like adding a background)Abigail likes cozy places!
Anything else we need to know: Abigail is mostly human. The only animal like additions she has to her are her ears and tail. You can dress her up as you wish, though she typically tends to wear long dresses that don't really show off her figure as she is self conscious. Baggy sweaters work too!


Character Name: Moe Crockett
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials:
Moe's reference image. I will also link her page but there may be some uncomfortable/ mature themes in her bio so beware.
Her page.
Species: Fallen Angel. Mostly human but sometimes shows off her angel wings behind her.
Gender expression: Female
Personality:Moe is innocent and a bit naïve. She tends to be very motherly and likes caring for others.
I prefer to receive: Either full body or bust!
Brief physical description of the character: Moe, despite her old age, appears rather youthful. Her body is thin and frail. Moe normally wears dresses that are white in color. A long scarf is attached at her neck. She is only five feet tall and tends to have a rather blank expression on her face (maybe a small smile).
Suggested environments: (if the artist feels like adding a background)Moe likes tall places, or nature scenes.
Anything else we need to know:Moe isn't very expressive unless she is being motherly. Her hair is short , waving around her face and neck.


My friends character who I would love to see art for. Hope that's okay~.
Character Name: Vermillion
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials:
Vermillion's reference image but his website is here
Species: Humanoid. (Is actually an alien)
Gender expression: Male.
Personality:Is described as " Obedient and respectful, but also has a constant disposition of being anti-social as he's an alien trying to fit into human society. He can become very friendly and loyal to those that gain his trust."
I prefer to receive: Either full body or bust!
Brief physical description of the character: Vermillion is just about 6 feet tall, appearing to be around 20-23. He has short red hair, his eyes matching in this same red color. He tends to wear casual clothes- so long as they consist of mostly red, black or white!
Suggested environments: (if the artist feels like adding a background)Vermillion could be seen anywhere.
Anything else we need to know:Despite being an alien he appears human. He actually has a bit more muscle then the reference image shows. He normally only wears red, black and sometimes white.

If you've listed more than one character, is it okay for your
characters to be drawn together if the artist wants:

Abigail and Vermillion are very close. Despite her timid nature she admires his courage and strength. I would love <3 to see them together.

Abigail and Moe could get along, so sure!

Moe and Vermillion: They do not know each other so I would prefer them not be drawn together!!
