View Full Version : Draw Your Friends, The Sequel!

Ok this is the new draw Your Friends thread. I have copied the rules (including a few changes) here so there is no need to check the previous thread.

I need a group of volunteers, 10 - 12 should do. Each volunteer will be given the name of one of the other participants via PM (keep it secret). What you need to do is draw an avatar for the person that has been selected for you. This can be done in a number of ways. You could completely invent a new avatar that you think is more fitting to the person in question, you could simply re-draw the original avatar in your own style or else re-invent the old avatar in a new pose or new outfit etc...

Once this is completed send them to me and I will reveal them in thread, I have removed the guessing element from this version of the game and as such will reveal both the image and the name of the artist. I will at least let you guess who it is meant to be. But judging from the last thread this will be pretty easy anyway but I'm not gonna spoon feed you everything :smallbiggrin:

So volunteers in thread please.

Anyone who has expressed interest in the previous thread can you please re-submit your desire to participate in this thread as confirmation.

EDIT: Once the 12 victims have been selected there will once again be a seven day time-frame. However, as already suggested, I will end the game immediately should I receive everyones submissions. This comes with a health warning to some though, in the last game I never received two entries until Friday night. That is why I had to wait until Saturday to make my update.

My mouse is at the service of a random victim to be announced further along.
And some samples of my work.

Yup, i'm back in. Btw, dont forget to add a timeframe to the first post as well. (And maybe go with my suggestion of "once everyone's done do the reveal" instead of waiting for a couple more days.)

Hm, we probably should all change avatars for the purpose of this, to avoid repetition...

Still interestedassuming I didn't missed my cue.

I suppose as much as I really like the current one, I should change avatar to avoid redundancy
(... as if you could have too much chineese dragons. Nonsense !)


Once this is completed send them to me and I will reveal them in thread, I have removed the guessing element from this version of the game and as such will reveal both the image and the name of the artist.[

Actualy the guessing part did provide a bit interest, I propose to keep it, just leave the whole points and competition aspect out, and reveal the name of the artists after one/two day.

Given how early it is in the game and in order not to have the same people hogging all the fun, I supose I could give my place for this round to Licoot if he really wants to be in.

I think this is not necessary ...
Each has a different style, different imagination ...
Moreover, who says that these are only momentary adjustment avatar?
because it is possible to take the nickname, look at his previous work .. (if enough patience) and do something with his momentary Avatar has nothing to do ... at first sight:)

Not really, I've done it during last round (and will do it again). If anything that gives more images for the artist working on you to work with.

Just leave a post saying you are changing and with you current avatar in it so they'll be able to keep looking at tit if they were working on it.

Trixie
2011-01-21, 07:42 PM
Hmm, Interesting idea, a pity I haven't know about it earlier.

I would have hance to hinally have OotS avatar by Tsofu :P

Maybe I'm seeing things, but haven't you changed avatars a lot recently? I remember seeing yellow dragon, but it must have been someone else, as you don't have anything like this in sig.

Indeed, Smuch had such avatar, changed it recently, and haven't posted it in his post like he postulated :smalltongue:

smuchmuch
2011-01-22, 07:45 AM
That is because I changed avatar before the competition started as I said I would.

if I had changed after the competition started I would have posted the old avatar for reference:

As long as everybody else is ok with it, I'll push it back two days for you.

So unless there is a huge backlash the new dead line is January 27th

No, just no.
The CHALLENGE is just stress refined into a comfortable weekly dosage and served as an nice polished cake which inevitably poisons you and drags you for more cake. It's dangerous and a CHALLENGE, I prefer seeing this as guilt free themed avataring (were the theme is another Playgrounder) without side effects or rock writing of those who FAILED in making an avatar on time.

Teutonic Knight

At least I won't be shamed, though :smalltongue:.

Wow, pleased to see that this is popular enough to warrant a wish list :smallbiggrin:

Ok, feel free to begin registering an interest in 'Draw Your Friends, The Trilogy' in this thread. I am however going to limit wishlist places to just those people that are yet to participate. Everyone else will have to fight it out once I make the new thread like normal.

I will also up the number of places to twenty or the nearest I can get. I will (dubiously) participate in the event of an odd number of volunteers.

Also two days left for the remaining two people.

I'm willing to help you run the next iteration, that way maybe the number could be raised to thirty and seeing as you seem to want to participate, would allow you to participate and run at the same time.

Elder Tsofu

I for one would doubt that we would fill up to thirty - 20 is a stretch. :smalltongue:

2011-01-25, 05:18 PM
Yeah, aside from Licoot (and then later Mr Saturn) it wasn't like there was loads of people banging on the door to get it after I closed recruitment. I think twenty should be fine.

As for help running it any offers would be very welcome, thank you. But don't get me wrong about participating myself, that was just the last resort solution to uneven numbers but if we could work it so that running it and joining in don't clash with each other I would be happy to give it a go :smallsmile:

We could use a time restriction for sign-ups instead of number of participants but still work with a minimum number.

And we could use the time of registration as point of separation for the participants, you manage the first half of the voluntaries to post and me, and I manage the second half of the voluntaries and you. I then PM the end results to you and you post them like before.

I was actually kinda hoping this would become something popular like IA.

Only IA is a competition to make the best art. We would just have avatars with themes, made for certain people, not for an award. Completely different.

Mr_Saturn
2011-01-26, 11:44 PM
You know Fin, its time to make a name for yourself. Anyways, its best to make it something casual, where people aren't discouraged by others in attempts to win something.


I know! Make a theme for avatars with obscenely large heads surrounded by rings.

2011-01-27, 12:43 AM
I'm done. Sorry it took so long.

Bot sure if i'll be in round . I thinkl I got avataring out of my system for a little while.
that said, If you need any more help (maybe some hosting space for the images), I'd be glad to help.


I was actually kinda hoping this would become something popular like IA.

Maybe it's just me but I got the impression that IA is getting less animated lately, actulay.Personally I'm more hopping this will tun into an experimentation lab of somme kind.

(Mind you, nothing stops you for making and giving prizes if you feel like it)

Submissioning is closed!

First, I am aware that submissioning is not really a word but I enjoy saying it... so :smalltongue:

Ok, I am still not sure what people want. Do you want me to re-host all the images so we can have the guessing element returned or not? I'll take the majority of the first three votes. I know this isn't particularly representative but I need a quick answer.

I vote for guessing, but don-t see the need for re-hosting, the honor system worked fine last time, and since it isn't a contest, I think there is little point in using right click.

smuchmuch
2011-01-27, 02:31 PM
Guessing, eventualy rehosting if you feel the need for it, wait two day before revealing the names of the artists who made the images, but no need to change image names (last time guessing who was supposed to be represented was hardly necessary, it's usualy pretty obvious.)

Fin
2011-01-27, 02:52 PM
Ok, no re-hosting but guessing is back in. Update will arrive shortly! It will essentially be a post with the 14 images in it. Structure your guesses as follows in order for it to be easy for everyone to follow:

Picture 1 - Belkar - Drawn by Fin
Picture 2 - Roy - Drawn by The Giant

Feel free to use the table function to make your votes pretty but I just want it structured in the Picture - Subject - Artist format. Other than that feel free to go mental!

Good God! My own Domo-avatar. It's awesome, it's hardcore! Definitely going to be saved and used.

The creaters are quite hard to think of.
Not really, all of them except maybe one or two were using their characteristic style, and many of us have pet gimmicks that you can easily spot.

Ahem, I've left a few open so to confuse anyone trying to break the honour system with looking at my post. Yes, that is what I have done. Certainly.

2011-01-27, 06:51 PM
My guesses:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
from/to

Picture 1
Akrim elf/Teutonic knight

I wasn't 100% sure at first, It's a little less distinctive than usual (head is slightly bigger).
but there's still the way the legs are done (alway straight and kind of close together)
But what really sold me is the small sound effect. Akrim elf has a talent to tell a story and make more with less, I can respect that.

Picture 2
Zephyr/Domochevsky

I'm not sure but I see a hint of shading (well lightning as the case may be) while remaining mostly OOTs looking wich is a olot like the few avis by zephyr i've seen til now.

Picture 3
Gilghammer-Nevitan

Same pose of the avatar, same stare. I'd critique along the lines of 'it doesn't look very original' but I'm really badly place to make that comment, ain't I ?

Picture 4
Domochevsky/araveugnitsuga

Well it's classic Domo style, it's not really hard to spot.

Just out of curiosity, are you going to do every avatar in this same style ?

Picture 5
/Slizard

Not sure.. could be Zephyr because of the thin line sbut i already putted him somewhare else.

Picture 6
Irbis/Zephyr

I assume it's a joke abpout that colored debauchery of an avatar. strictly speking, Araveugnitsuga is rto blame for that one.
Sayin' Irbis because of the mocking vibe I get from it.

Picture 7
Dogmantra/smuchmuch

I don't think there are many other people who go with a chineese dragoin avatar around these forums.
I like it but Why a sandwich ?

(I vaguely suspect the pose it's a joke about my tendency to make busts avatars. What can I say. You can only show so much in a 120*120 box and feets aren't that fascinating that i feel the need to draw attention on them. *shrug*)

Picture 8
Nevitan/Ninjaman

It's a Dollvatar like last time so I'm going to say Nevitan.

Picture 9
Araveugnitsuga/Irbis

Would had a hard time guessing who it was if it wasn't for the crown.
The author is, however, obvious. between the background, the dress and the lots of details.

Picture 10
/Gimliggamer

Picture 11
Felyndiira/Tsofu

Easily recognizable style is easy to recognize.
I'm going to say Tsoffu because of the cat theme (wich fits the catgirl he has now and the cat n he had before.)

Picture 12
Teutonic knight/Felyndiira

Picture 13

for those who wouldn't know, Dogmantra used to have this thing where his character, Joe the half orc would dress as other Avatars. It was pretty funny. i've alway been one to apreciate a good running gag.

I'm really unhappy with this considering the time I spend on this. It's really Meh
The comic is just a bous throw quickly to makje up for taking so long.

Picture 14
Elder Tsofu/Akrim elf

Mostly getting this one by eleimination (it's a little too dyanmic for regular OOTs style but there is no shading.) I like the pose.

Teutonic Knight
2011-01-27, 11:55 PM
Man I need to come up with my own style. I keep looking at it and it seems to plain. Anyway a question for the elven maker of the only knight among the entries: what made you choose lightning bolts, Pokeballs, circle glasses, and a cellphone-switch with a lightning bolt and Pokeball on top? :smalltongue:

Oh yeah can you please shrink it down to a wearable size that doesn't cut off after 120? Thanks.

2011-01-28, 12:07 AM

It's not the thing that he isn't there he just tells that he doesn't make it. Either way I think I need a new avatar, but I like Taric too much.

My guess will come soon neeed to relax abit first.

Ok thank you everyone for another fantastic batch of entries. I will leave it until tomorrow before I set up the next recruitment thread. The four people that are on the reserve list consider yourself in unless you state otherwise. Everyone that participated in this round feel free to sign-up in the new thread, in the interests of fairness there is no pre-recruitment for people who have already played.

Thank you and goodnight!

(I dunno it was just a feeling I got .. Well I am not totaly feeling like a jerk right now.

... Sorry Irbis.)

Also, there is an Irbismantra in picture 13. Second to last. I decided to make the first avi in your sig rather than the on you had now (because I had alredy dressed Joe in drag for araveugnimantra and I was afraid the joke would get old fast.)

Also Apologies to Zefir (make that double apologies). If Dogmantra doesn't mind, I'll make a Dogfir later; I don't like leaving things unfinished


Joking aside, yeah, i guess it doesn't make all that much sense for me to participate in these, what with my style sticking out like it does.

Guess i'll sit the next round out then

No one said having a personal style was bad thing. (I'm sorry if the comment camme a critique Felyndiira.)
Besides the guessing is only a small part of the game. The drawing a random is still the most important.

But hey, if you feel your usual drawings are too recognizable maybe you could still particiapte and just try something new, no ?

Zefir
2011-01-29, 06:29 PM
I'm really bad in the guessing I saw a few but I forgot to make a list.

I actually wasn't aware that it was going to be a guessing game and that we would just draw for our fellow playgrounders.

Don't mind it, it's entirely optional, there is no scoring or anything, it's just for the added fun of some of us OoTS Art Students to show off our knowledge of each avatarists work.

-Puts on Monocle-

Like an art critique baths in the praise he receives when correctly identifying a Monet or a Picasso from it's copies, we feast upon the knowledge that we are able to distinguish between a finely crafted Tsofu and a masterfully detailed Felyndiira. We also rejoice upon the correct identification of artist not yet known yet working into the spotlight, for it shows our obsession love for all OoTS art related.

- Lights pipe -

Why yes, a trained OotS-artist's eye can distinguish the line thickness of an avatar and elucidate the original creator. A single pixel of difference can m-- *COUGHCOUGH*

I can't smoke.


Why go out of the way to hide your distinguishing characteristics? Although I'll be at a disadvantage because I am not very familiar with all of y'all drawing habits.

araveugnitsuga
2011-01-30, 12:02 AM
-Brings out pipe, bubbles start to come out-

Hmm, this line thickness theory is most interesting, I would have to do further research as my current methods are focused around coloration and saturation theory and not linear theory, I suppose some strings figure inside there too.

Also, a kind reminder, go with soap, it's less dangerous than tobacco and more fun.

-Lowers pipe-

You would be at no disadvantage, most avatarist do their own avatars, you can see examples of their art there. And really, the contest is really optional, check the first thread to see how only a few participated on the second part. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=182167)

As for hiding the characterizing style, I would say none have done so until now. In fact, many have gone out of the way to exaggerate their style so that it cannot be mistaken..

Domochevsky

(I dunno it was just a feeling I got .. Well I am not totaly feeling like a jerk right now.

Eh, I don't mind that at all, I just wanted to know why.

And I spend first two days feeling bad about that competition, I must have drawn a dozen realistic/oots style dragon heads for this until deciding I don't like any of them and throwing pure oots a day before the end, only to see the amount of work you put into this. If you'd like something better and not as hastily done, contact me, for now let's say I.O.U. one avatar :P


Also, there is an Irbismantra in picture 13. Second to last. I decided to make the first avi in your sig rather than the on you had now (because I had alredy dressed Joe in drag for araveugnimantra and I was afraid the joke would get old fast.)

Ah, the Archer one? I see.

I thought no one looked there, ever :P


I like it but Why a sandwich ?

Because of the 'Krystal can't munch her sandwich' meme? >.<

It was the only idea I had. And you don't have to console me! :P

And don't google that if you're in a place where someone can see you or you value your own sanity :P

I must suck mightily then, even with using completely different graphic suite to make the avatar (making it stand out in most details from others) no one recognized it :smallfrown:

I'd like to participate in the next one.

Yes, I would as well.

Mostly cause I want an excuse to practice more avatars.
