Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat! December 2017

Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

December 2017

GUIDELINES:
On the first of each month a subject, concept or idea will be posted in a thread entitled Fantasy Science Fiction Monthly Challenge and Chat.

All entries must be new original artworks for this challenge in any style or genre of Fantasy or Science Fiction done in any medium, 2D or 3D.
Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images! Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere such as the Reference Image Library or best of all your own wonderful imagination!
A 'reveal' date for all is 24th of the month - that gives us a little over 3 weeks to make the work, plus few extra days for latecomers.

Please post the finished artwork on this thread at that time.

The December Challenge is.......
An Original Art Gift Exchange


I wanted to do something different for this month so here's the idea, we will have a sign up period for anyone who wants to join in.

After 10 days we will do the draw for who gets who on the exchange.
Sign up open until Midnight on November 24th.

After that on November 25th I'll draw the Artist to do the artwork and Virginia will draw who gets the artwork. We'll keep going until everyone is matched up. You know the basic office gift draw, so the person you do an artwork for may be a different person from the person doing an artwork for you.

This will be an actual physical artwork that you will ship to your person, it might even be international.
The giver will not only make the artwork but will pay for the shipping. So you might want to keep that in mind for the size of artwork.
If this works out this might be the First Annual Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Gift Exchange.
If it bombs it will be the one and only, but you never know until you try.

There are also a few things to vote on, do you want this to be a Secret Exchange? I'll Private Message each person and let them know who they are making an artwork for.

Or do you want an Open Exchange with the list posted on the Thread?

Pros and Cons to both, the Secret has the joy of surprise, Open you could discuss with your person what they would like, and customize it to them.

You may wonder where is the Challenge?
It's the same challenge as giving any gift, what do they want?
Can I give it to them?

One more thing to vote on, I started the Challenges with a post date of the 24th to give us extra time, however lately there is a lot of "tick, tick, tick" going on.
Do you want me to change the post date to the 21st of each month.
That would make it the same day as the Acrylic Challenge and on those times that it works out to combine them we could post right away.

One last thing we will still post the Gift Artworks on here on the 24th or after then ship them after that ...avoiding the shipping hassle of the Holidays.

So sign up if you want to do this, what format, Secret or Open, if you want to change the post date to the 21st starting in January and any restrictions or requests you have for your artwork gift.

Re: Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat! December 2017

I'll go first!
I would like to sign up for the Original Art Gift Exchange.
I like the Open Format.
Yes, I would like to change the post/reveal date to the 21st of each month.
Art request: My personal taste and with little grand-kid (s) I would prefer no nudity. I'm good with some Cheesecake or Beefcake but if it would require a butt icon it is probably too much for me to hang on my wall. Thanks!

Ok I'll sign up.
I like the Open Format.
Yes, you could change the reveal to the 21st. After all, we still have until the end of the month.
Also no nudity for me. Something happy is preferable.

I guess you wouldn't like something like my last year's Christmas card? Or 2015's?


Oh, all right. I'll join up, and I am for the 21st reveal date.

If we get an odd number, you will have to do two, Dianna

Ok, I'll confess, I started to wonder if we would need an even number of people.

Nope it's just a name draw, not a swap or trade so even or odd numbers will both work out.
