Winter Art Exchange! [ CLOSED ]

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 11, 2015, 9:12 AM

Year after year, I've been drawing for close dA friends of mine ( and last year, for some folks with wishlists ), and we nearly always exchange Winter gifts. So this year, I wanted to open it up to other people, art-trade style!

- Be a watcher of mine
- You cannot participate if you currently owe me art
- Both your/my half of the trade must be completed by December 25th, 2015
- Can be done traditionally/digitally, I have no preference
- Must be a finished piece, be it a sketch, an ink drawing, painting, digital painting, pixel art, etc.

Here's my list of stuff I'll draw: Art Trade Info.ART TRADES
What I'll Draw:
:bulletblue: Animals ( Realistic and cartoony )
:bulletblue: Anime ( OCs and Copyrighted Characters )
:bulletblue: Fantasy ( Mostly Dragons/Unicorns, but I do other creatures. )
:bulletblue: Video Game Characters ( Fan Art )
:bulletblue: Anthro ( Animal types and OCs )
Anything NOT on that list is stuff I probably won't do, or I'm just really bad at it.
I WILL NOT draw the following:
:bulletblue: Porn
:bulletblue: Nudity ( I can draw showing SOME skin. Let me know how much you want showing. I don't like doing full-blown nudity. )
:bulletblue: Most fetishes. ( If you happen to have a thing for guys in suits or something, we're good. As long as it's dA appropriate and I'm comfortable drawing it. If you're not sure, just ask me, I'll let you know. )
:bulletblue: Political/propoganda art
:bulletblue: Hate art of any kind
If you want a trade, make sure I'm OPEN for them first.
I ONLY do art trades with people I watch, or who are watching me.

 I only draw in traditional, so keep that in mind.

 I may wait to post my half until you finish yours. I've been taken advantage of several times when doing trades, so I'm a bit reluctant to trade with new people. If you're worried about me finishing your half, you can always ask to see progress, and I can send a low-res, watermarked pic as proof.

Depending upon what you get done, I'll try and do the same, meaning if you sketch something, I'll do a graphite sketch with shading, if you do something in full color, I'll do something in full color, you draw in realism/I draw in realism, etc. The more effort you put in, the more I'll put into my half!

Give me a few different things/subjects to draw--I like having a variety to choose from. It's fine if you'd prefer me to draw just one thing, too!

If you want an ACEO/ATC swap for this, specify that somewhere in your note! I'm willing to send the original out to you.
Not sure how much time I'll have, but I want to at least see how much interest there is. I'm having a hard time finishing personal projects, so getting a break from my own stuff will be nice. It always seems to happen when I start doing graphite drawings. Why is that? :lol:

If you're interested, send me a note or comment here with refs of who you'd like me to draw, and I'll do the same.  I'll try and get back to everyone ASAP. Updates will be available all the time on my to-do list on my profile page.

Feel free to ask me questions if you're unsure of anything.

I'll keep this open until Nov. 20th, 18:00 GMT, or when I get enough people. I don't even have a set number, so we'll see. I still owe some birthday gifts, ahhhh.

Note me or comment below if you're interested!

I look forward to trading with you guys!

Hi, you can call me Ess.

Like many people here, I draw stuff, herd llamas, and train my army of butterflies. :thumbsup:

I've taken and completed a correspondence art course from 2004-2008, so I have some schooling. I've also had my art displayed downtown in my city, and I've done everything from portraits to murals. I've also learned quite a bit from the wonderful people here on dA, and I hope I continue to improve on my art. :D

I like to use traditional media, mainly using graphite, inks, watercolours, markers, colored pencils and acrylics. You'll see everything from realism to anime, and even some fan art here and there in my gallery.

I do other things besides drawing, mainly sculpture/prop-making, but I don't post those. MY CAMERAS ARE SO BAD I'M SORRY. But yeah, paperclay is my weapon of choice,and paper mache.

I have my bouts of fangirling, but I try to keep myself under control. I hope I don't scare anyone away. :stare:

I'm a skittish fav-and-runner, but I do try to comment from time to time.

Thanks for dropping by, faving, watching, llamas, and commenting! :heart: You guys are great.
