With the holidays approaching, I thought it would be a fun idea to try something new. This will be taking the place of the traditional December Art Challenge. Of course, if you're still interested in having a December challenge, please head over to the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_art/b10020/29089842/p1/?66]Official Fan Art Challenge[/link] thread and express your interest. [hr] Welcome to the First Annual Fan Art Gift Exchange! With the holidays approaching, we all know it's that time of year again to find the perfect gift for friends and loved ones. Why not expand that holiday cheer to include the boards and give someone the gift of art? This will work very similar to a Secret Santa gift exchange but instead of picking anything, you will be exchanging a piece of fan art. How to Participate: Add your name to the list below and be sure to express your interests(characters, scenes, vehicles) to help your match come up with the perfect gift. Example: 1. skywalker_fan1138 - Luke Skywalker, Jedi, The Battle of Yavin Once everyone has signed up, I will randomly match you up with someone else on the list and PM you their information. Your job is then to create a piece of original fan art based on the information they provided. Starting December 24th, I will create a separate thread for everyone to post their completed gifts and exchange holiday wishes. Please copy and paste the list below and add your name to the next available space. Feel free to add more spaces if you run out of room: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Deadlines: Since we are running behind schedule with December starting on Monday, I will give everyone a week for sign-ups. Please sign up by Wednesday, December 3rd at midnight board time. I will then put the matches together and have them in your PM boxes no later than December 4th. The final thread will then be posted on Christmas Eve, December 24th but you will have until January 1st to complete your gift and post it in the thread. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask! And remember, have fun!
