The 10th Annual WetCanvas Holiday Portrait Swap Pairings and Paintings thread!
Here forthwith are the 2013 Holiday Pairings ! Thank you again everyone for signing up! This will be fantastic great year! Let's make it AWESOME!!!!
A little background on the "how" of matching: The pairings were made this year using the rand() function again via Microsoft Excel. I had Excel generate random numbers for each swap member; I then sorted one half randomly, then sorted the other half randomly and then matched the two halves again - randomly. If there is a mistake - please let me know via PM and I will do my best to help! I have a back-up painter ( me) if we need one - if others would like to volunteer please PM me or post here!
This year we would really like it if you would share your Works-in-Progress ( W.I.P's) and finals here and a "selfie" ( portrait of you and your new painting) upon receipt!). Please post at least your final work and a photo of you and your new painting when you receive it! Please be sure to thank your partner for their hard work!
Remember the goal is to have these complete and on their way by the first week in December. So get your photos sent as soon as you are able! ( via personal email ).
Please note that your partner is to the left -or right and on the same row as you. Example - Adamrice and TheBoardLady are partners and so on. ( sorry for the spoiler!) for the rest - the drum roll.. dldldldldldldldldldldldld
I hope you are are excited to get going! Now - on to getting photos that match the type and quality listed at the beginning of the Announcement thread - shot and off to your swap partner. I suggest you send several images of yourself ( get some help with the shooting part please!) and make sure you follow the directions. These are best sent via your email and not through the pm system ( size limitations).
Your partner should NOT get snapshot-quality images
- they should be carefully lit photos with no flash, no direct,frontal lighting and several image options for them to consider! If you do not send good reference images, your partner may ask for good form-light and shadows so they have something clear to draw or paint. I suggest you set exposure compensation/Exposure Adjustment to minus .7 or minus 1 to ensure no blown-out lights as well!
Thank you everyone again for joining in this our biggest year and well - here we go!!
