Secret SantaSecret Santa
She stood there, the photographer, staring at the rose.
She traced her finger around its' petals, going down the stem, and felt the prick, as the
blood, fell in a drop to the floor.
"Ouch" she said. "Thorns are not supposed to do that"
She moved around in her hat and scarf. She was a traveller, moving to and fro around the planet, rarely staying in one place.
Her camera was her only companion, cataloguing her adventures on the way.
She repositioned her rose, facing it towards the camera. She wanted to get the best shot possible. It was the first time she was trying this technique. She had to hurry to just
get this shot -- perfect. Slowly positioning it so it faced forwards, all the bad petals to the back, she wandered over to the red bucket, that she had, just for this shot.
Touching her finger to the water, she made the first drop, on the top petal, then the next and the next, and the next. The drops formed a diagional across the rose.
Quickly, frame after frame, she took

Still waiting on gifts from...

:iconrequiemachina: :iconhollywhisperwind:

If you did finish your gift and it isn't listed here, please tell iLantiis ASAP. :heart:

There was a tie-breaker, so the person doing art for Lantiis should note the group or leave a comment XD. If you did not get a note and are participating, NOTE iLantiis - Seriously, I tried so hard to not screw this up, but it was 4am when I started matching and noting, so anything could have happened lol.</h3>

We will be doing our own Secret Santa! No money is to be exchanged - all art based! All gifts are due by December 31st, so if you can't make that deadline then please do not join this event. It isn't fair if your Secret Santa makes you a work but they don't get one in return.

:damphyr: How to Join
In a comment, tell us...
:bulletgreen: What you are comfortable doing (photo, human characters, pixels, lit, etc).
:bulletred: Three different things you would like to get as an art gift (you will only get one!).

Please note that if you ask for more than one focus in any art that you may be disappointed. As an example, I always like to see my OCs Darkshine and Brightshine together. However, my Secret Santa may not have time to do a picture with both characters or may not be comfortable doing both characters. That means that even though I want both that I will only get one. Understand?

:damphyr: The Process
We will do our best to make sure that everyone gets the best match possible. I will be using Tuesday, December 4th, to match everyone and then note everyone of their matches. I will be participating if and only if we have an odd number of participants. I am the tie-breaker XD

Make sure to link your finished work on this journal when you are done. We will notify the artist for you and do a feature of all the works done by our Secret Santas on January 1st! (just PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't join this activity if you can't make the December 31st deadline!!!)

:damphyr: More?
Yes, all participants will be put in a drawing to win a 3-month premium membership to deviantART (or the equivalent number of points). Only one winner. The drawing will be random.

Remember, comment on this journal by December 3rd to join! All of your works are to be submitted to the ARKworks Gallery Folder please (this is an act of kindness!).

I am sorry, but I do not have you on the list of participants for this event nor have I sent you a note about who or when your art is due (nor received any art from your for your secret santa). Are you sure you are commenting on the correct Secret Santa event?

Oh well, I'll just re-join next Christmas :D

I never got mine... :c
I really worked HARD on the gift I made too, and was quite disappointed to find that I wasn't given one myself... D';
iLantiis Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, I am disappointed too. I hope the last few artists turn their art in soon. :(
