Remember to send a note to the group to Register! You're not signed up until you do so!
Hey everyone! We're going to be doing a secret santa this year. We encourage all members who have some time on their hands to step right up and draw something wonderful for a lucky somebody. Sure it's only the end of October, but we want to give artists plenty of time to make their gifts! Also for those of you who aren't familiar with secret santa....
Members of the Okami group sign up, after signups are closed, each member will be assigned somebody they have to make a gift for. You will also be assigned to an anonymous somebody that will make a gift for you.
We will note you telling you who your recipient is. Please have turned in your gift to us by the deadline.
Here are some general Rules to keep in mind.....
- turn in your art in time please, anyone not doing their part will be banned from the group
- don't ask to be assigned to a certain artist, everybody will be assigned via a random program, taking into consideration everybody's category of art
- no porn, no gore, etc., the usual
- do not reveal the name of the person you are drawing for until december when you're posting your art!
- it doesn't have to be related to winter or Christmas though that'd be fun as it's a secret... santa
- it has to be Okami related! If you're asking for someone to draw your original character, said character has to be Okami related( with a background story set in the Okami universe for example). Don't try to fool around, we will quickly know you're lying or trying to bend the rules
Life happens! If something comes up and you can't get your art made up in time, please contact us so we can prepare a little something for your recipient! As long as you're truly honest and give us a fair cushion before the deadline we won't expel you from the group.
Please keep these dates in mind!
November 3 to Nov 10- Signups!
We will sort out the registrants and notify you of your recipient by November 14 via note, You can then start on their gift!
The Deadline for completing your gift is December 14. Between the 14 and 21 of December is when members can start uploading their gifts to Deviant art. and sending them to their recipients,
Please send a note to the group to register, we also request that you notify us when you have finished your gift.
Once you upload it (see upload dates above) please provide a link to the deviation as well so we can present a nice organized list when we reveal them all!
Please provide the following information when signing up.
Category of your art, chose only one( digital, traditional, craft, photomanipulation, litterature)
Creatures you'd prefer to draw( canines, humans, etc.)
Will you draw a background with it or not?

Anything else you'd like to say
We would also appreciate some volunteers for courtesy gifts for those who's secret santa falls through. If you're interested , please let us know! It doesn't have to be amazing, It's always the thought that counts
