To celebrate the holidays, #FoalS-HARPG has decided to hold three events! There will be a Fuzzy Foal Secret Santa, The New Bundle of Joy Foal/Breeding Gifting, and a Rockin' Reindeer Show!
This Secret Santa will work just like any other of DA's Secret Santas, but this one will be exclusive to foals and open to any member of the equine community, not just HARPG members! Sign-ups will last through November and notes should be sent out December 1st, but let us know if you need to know who you will be drawing for earlier (we know the holidays can be stressful!). Pictures should be posted in the week before Christmas. If you won't be able to access a computer in that time frame, Premium Members can schedule pictures to be uploaded on a certain time and date, and non-Premium Members can contact us and we will approve your early submission- it is much better to get it up early than too late! If you will not be able to finish your picture in time, let us know as soon as possible so we can get a backup artist to do something to give to the person you were to draw for. It is only required to draw one of the foals, though you can add more if you would like.
To sign up, fill out this form and note it to the group:
Foals to Draw: (Please use links and give up to three foals. It would be nice to have some variety- natural, fantasy, complex, simple, different breeds, etc. Also list their name and breed.)
Extra Notes for Gift Artist: (If there is some situation you don't want your horses in, or personality quirks that might spark drawing ideas, and things like that that you want passed along, put it here!)
Is it alright for the artist to add in their own characters?: (Yes or no)
Is there anything you are uncomfortable drawing?: (can be certain builds, breeds, fantasy/natural, complex markings, etc.)
Are you willing to be a backup artist?: (In the event that someone has to pull out, would you have enough time to take on another picture?)
Example of a Filled Out Form (by someone not included in the actual event):
Foals to Draw:
fav.me/d2tce8h Tessia (in front), Canne Carne X Otherworldly Akhal-Teke
fav.me/d2tce8h Lilith (in back), Mustang X [Paint/Quarter Horse]
fav.me/d2iocwv Heartbeat's Funeral, Dawnstar Rising
Extra Notes for Gift Artist: Tessia loves the cold weather, so drawing her in snow would be perfect. Lilith is overbearing, a bit of a bully, and a trickster at heart- she is the one who would be stealing everyone's presents out from under the tree. Heartbeat is energetic- he will race with anything!
Is there anything you are uncomfortable drawing?: I'm open to anything.
Are you willing to be a backup artist?: No, I don't think I would have the time, I'm sorry.
Is there a certain foal that you absolutely wish you could have? Here's your chance to have him or her gifted to you! There are two ways to participate: the first way would be to send us a wish, which we will feature in this journal, or make a new one if the event gets too big specifically for this; the second way is to fulfill a wish. You are welcome to wish for whatever you would like, up to five different wishes. They can be any breed, color, gender, or build that you want! If you would like to fulfill a wish, you can breed the foal to be gifted yourself, or, if you have a mare or stallion that could be used, you can offer a breeding with them. Once you offer a foal or breeding, let one of the group admins know (or just comment here) so that the journal can be kept updated!
This list will be open for new wishes through December 25th and wishes can be granted through January of the New Year.
~Blacksheep28 wishes for:
Here is your chance to draw your foals doing something winter-y or holiday-y! They can be building snowmen, attempting to make snow angels, sliding on ice, decorating a Christmas tree, delivering presents, or just enjoying a starry night! A story would be nice, be it about the foal or perhaps a personal reason for drawing what you drew- but this is completely up to you. Due to the open nature, depending on what kind of entries we get, there will be certain categories (like best story, best Christmas theme, best winter theme, best Northern Lights, best New Years, cutest foal, etc.) that will be put in polls for members to vote on and surprise prizes will be given out!
This section will end on New Year's Day.
