The Avatar Exchange 2020 - Round 2 - taking sign-ups!
« on: June 29, 2020, 05:06:47 PM »
Welcome to Round 2 of
The Avatar Exchange!

What’s the Avatar Exchange?

Each round you'll get a secret partner (who you will keep secret until you reveal the avatar) and will have three weeks to deliver an avatar based on your partner's form. The artwork itself can be traditionally or digitally made, as long as it is turned into a digital icon ready for your partner to use. The exchange will run for as long as there is interest, and you can sign up for as many rounds as you like. Feel free to jump in at any time!

Previous rounds:
Round 1


Guidelines:
  • You should deliver two versions of your icon: a 150x150 version for use here at the Arena (under 60k, please) and a larger, un-cropped version. If you do pixel ponies, the second can be waived as a larger version may not exist.
  • Original artwork only, please (all art should be made by you, and please do not use current or old adoptable bases unless you modify the lineart significantly to make it unique for your partner).
  • Please deliver on time. If you have not delivered on time for the round, your ability to participate in future exchanges will be suspended until you make up your part.
  • Artwork should abide by Arena standards of content, of course.
  • When your partner posts the avatar, please make sure you download it before using – your partner is not obliged to host the image after it has been delivered.
  • Your sign-up post should contain the word sunshine somewhere in order to signify to me that you've read the rules.
  • Do not reveal your partner before you're done! If you have any questions, please message me and I can PM your partner.
  • Post your finished avatar to this thread when you are done. You may post the avatar up to three days before the deadline, but no earlier, please.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in this thread!


Dates:

Sign-ups:  now through Friday, 10 July, at 5 pm EDT (9 pm UTC)
Partners Sent: between sign-up close and 3 pm EDT (7 pm UTC) the next day
Working: 10 July through 1 August
Final Posting Deadline: Saturday, 1 Aug by 8 pm EDT (midnight UTC)


Sign-ups go in this thread! Please do not PM them to me. Thanks!

I can do ponies, animals and people, toony or semi-realistic. My equipment for digital art is limited so I'll either do traditional or mixed media (scanned lines, coloured in digitally). Don't know how to do pixel art...

Brief Character Description (Hasbro/OC):
Aithne is a dun pony with dark brown legs, a white blaze, brown hair with dark green and yellow stripes. She has gentle chocolate brown eyes that reflect her sweet personality. She likes animals, books and art. Her symbol is a black cat curled around a Celtic triquetra knot. She enjoys sunshine but makes sure she doesn't get a sunburn!

Character Reference Pic (a nice, clear reference, please! Links only - do not embed!):
http://fav.me/d650k1g

List three to six possible themes for your avatar. These can be motifs, colours, expressions/emotions, hobbies, objects, etc... pretty much anything!

(not in any specific order of preference)
1. Cats
2. Green
3. Vintage fashion/headwear/hairstyles
4. Summer fruit or berries
5. Rainy weather
6. Lakeside

Anything you don't like? Not a fan of anthro ponies, sorry!

Any other info?
I also love G1 Gusty and Butterscotch if you'd like to draw one of them instead of my persona!  ^.^
