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 26TH (That's a Friday)
ASSIGNMENTS SENT ON NOVEMBER 27TH (That's a Saturday)
ART IS DUE ON DECEMBER 20TH (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 26TH (That's a Friday)
ASSIGNMENTS SENT ON NOVEMBER 27TH (That's a Saturday)
ART IS DUE ON DECEMBER 20TH (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
    • 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.

thar be characters

Character Name: Cinnan Fuxire
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!
Brief physical description of the character: Rather tall and lanky. Cinnan dresses femme to avoid suspicion but has no chest. For reference, they are non binary. If you decide to draw their eyes open, they have no pupils/iris. Any art depicted as such is in their past.
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!
Species: Lime-blooded Alternian troll
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Stoic to the point of appearing cruel. Doesn't show emotion often, unless around those he likes.
I prefer to receive: Both are fine!
Brief physical description of the character: Incredibly tall. Noccio is well over 7 feet in height without counting horns. He dresses modern chic, so simple designs, like turtlenecks, long coats, and short boots are a classic.
Suggested environments: Libraries and forests. His house is basically a massive treehouse so feel free to put him in there.
Anything else we need to know: The headband and jewelry cannot be forgotten. They're all essential to his character.

Character Name: Sangris Atsennu

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

Character Name: Helios Frigate
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Albino Info
Species: Mobian - Hedgehog
Gender expression: Male
Personality: Hyper, Rebellious, Adventurous, Fun Likes, Non-Conformist, Mischievous
I prefer to receive: (full body art/bust/either) Full please
Brief physical description of the character: A white hedgehog with very pale markings than can dance with fire and sunlight. Albinism has given him red eyes, including deep red pupils. Quills fan out in a solar-like pattern. Style is akin to a rocker.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Nature if hanging with his bro or something suited to his music loving and/or mischievous nature.
Anything else we need to know: He's more shy than he presents himself. Can be easy to embarrass him if he's caught off guard. Feel free to modify his outfit or give him a new one.


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. Dark and Neutral aligned Rhiths are more prone to be controlling/manipulating the faction Knox resides in, making Knox an unknowing ally or bitter enemy. Light/Hero is self explanatory. Frigate brothers are close-knit siblings.

For now I'm just going to list the usual suspects, but I may come back and edit this post with some newer characters. Let's see >_>

Character Name: West
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/c/sadboy
Species: Human
Gender expression: Cis-Male
Personality: Reserved, Struggles to connect with others, violent + rude as a self defence mechanism.
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: Short with a stocky build, short white hair and red eyes (these are features of his homeland). Has a distinctive scar under his eye and across his lip. Not very fashion forward, but wears both neutral colours and garish pink. There are loads of reference images on his profile.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Cars, vibrant cities, cyberpunk-ish.
Anything else we need to know: I am perfectly okay with a little violence/blood in any artwork given to me!

Character Name: Barame
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/c/RatPrince
Species: Human
Gender expression: Cis-Male
Personality: He's a man with two sides. Friendly and sociable in day to day life, yet he's able to hide how effortlessly cruel he is in his work.
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: He's a little on the shorter side, but he has a somewhat lanky build. He has long white hair (usually tied back) and red eyes (these are features of his homeland). His eyesight is very poor so he always wears glasses. He dresses like a 10 year old who has suddenly been given $1 million spending money. There are loads of reference images on his profile.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Vibrant cities, cyberpunk-ish.
Anything else we need to know: I am perfectly okay with a little violence/blood in any artwork given to me!

Character Name: Adael
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: https://www.rprepository.com/c/adael
Species: Spirit (who usually appears Human)
Gender expression: Usually appears male
Personality: Adael can come off as somewhat cold and calculating and driven by revenge. He is skilled at big-picture thinking and managing people and resources. He's not an emotionless creature, and he is soft in his own way but his time is overwhelmingly occupied by working towards larger goals.
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: Adael is somewhat tall and muscular with brown hair. He wears an eyepatch over his right eye, the exposed one also brown in colour. While usually hidden by his clothing and eyepatch, Adael has many black scars and a magic seal on his body betraying his non-human nature. Here is an image showing them. There are plenty of other images on his page.
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background) Vibrant cities, cyberpunk-ish.
Anything else we need to know: Do you like body horror? I like body horror! Feel free to go wild! + as above I'm fine with violence and blood.

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! Adael and Barame are in a relationship and West is a close friend. I'd love to see any of them drawn together :)
First time participating, I'm excited!

Character Name: Katane
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Katane's RPR profile
Species: Drakin(homebrew dragon race)
Gender expression: Feminine
Personality: Excitable, smart(but tries to hard to look it), affectionate, and really into her alchemy
I prefer to receive: Either
Brief physical description of the character: Round face with gold eyes and vertical slit pupils; very fair skin with patches of rose-gold scales; light pink, curly hair; short and fit with a pear-shaped body; a big tapering tail and large ears with short, rose-gold fur; two pairs of horns with the larger set curling around like a rams and the smaller ones on shooting up and back mostly straight, but sometimes she magically hides her horns entirely. She wears skirts or all kinds, usually had on a belt or tail bag with pouches and vials, and is usually dressed warmly. If her horns are hidden she likes to wear hats similar to berets or newsboy caps. She likes at least some non-muted colors in her outfits
Suggested environments (if the artist feels like adding a background): Potions bottles, cauldron, her cart/shop, any post-medieval/medieval fantasy-looking background.
Anything else we need to know: She has a dragon form that she can fully or partially shift into as well, if my trade partner would like to draw that instead. The reference is not up as of my entry, but I'll try to have it up by the entry cutoff.




Character Name: Giget Caelip
Link to Character's RPR profile or other reference materials: Giget's RPR profile
Species: Half-Tiagnavian(think of an elf with stouter ears)
