NOTE: Applications for non invites are now open. If you wish to participate please read the previous journal here [link]
. Keep in mind this is a skill based santa and not everyone will be accepted. Only roughly 50 uninvited guests will be added to the list. Requirement is upper intermediate +
As the invites have been sent out and enough people have responded I've decided its as good a time as any to start getting in those Wish List Journals.Things you should know:
-Not everyone is amazing at drawing boys, not everyone is amazing at drawing girls.
So please, when possible, include both a boy and girl option in your wish list.-When making your requests
provide links even if you are requesting fanart. "I'd like you to draw Ichigo from bleach here is an example: [link]
" for example.-Try to have a few options on your wish list.
It leaves more room to inspire your exchange partner and we all know inspiration is a key element in making something beautiful!! Also if you have an original character, feel free to say a little about the character.-shounen ai/shoujo ai :
remember not everyone is comfortable drawing this. Its okay to request it but if you do make sure you have other choices too. No adult material will be accepted in this exchange. -Please don't request only couples.
There has been an issue with this in the past. Make sure you have characters that can also be drawn alone.
Any other questions feel free to ask. Here is an example of a wish list Journal. Most of you can probably skip this but anyone who isn't sure is free to look it over for ideas.

Thank you and I can't wait to see the surprise.
Wishlists should be finished by october 15th if possible. But there may be an extension period. During that time I will also be taking in applicants who where not invited but wish to join. If you like you may advertise the exchange or if you have artists you'd like to suggest feel free to do that as well.
