Draw your Friends III - Already Running

Welcome to the third iteration of the Draw your Friends game/competition, the game/competition were you draw for a friend.

I'm one of your hosts, araveugnitsuga, you may call me Pink-Haired August.
Our other host, and founder of this game/competition is none other than Fin.


Info
The Guidelines

The game starts when we reach the 20 volunteers.
You may join by posting your desire to do so in the current thread.
If you participated in the last iteration you must repost in the running thread, posting on a thread that has undergone will not count.
You will be assigned a fellow volunteer to draw for through a PM by your respective host.
You have 7 days to draw it.
You may draw in any style you wish.
The idea is to draw something related to your assigned playgrounder.
Any format is welcomed, from avatar to a giant watercolor image.
When you are finished you PM it to your assigned host.
Don't post the image here.

Extensions are permissible if you PM a host asking for it and a reasonable extended time-frame.


The Workings

There are two phases.
On the "First Phase" you are assigned a fellow volunteer to be draw.
The second phase is entirely optional.
On the "Second Phase" a host reveals all the images.
You may guess on who draw it and by whom it was drawn.
After two days such information will be revealed.

You can only enter The Wishlist if you didn't participate in the previous round and the contest already has started.
If you enter the Wishlist you are automatically included on the next round.

Nice to see you return and yes, it's a bit odd but Fin and I are working around that.

The only thing I wonder is how long it will take me to come up with ideas for everyone's avatars before I actually get the PM for whom I'm suppose to make it for.

What's that? 'You should work on the fancomic'? Nah.

I can do that when I'm not tired.

Welcome!

To our newcomers!


Interesting, I wonder how much responsibility you're shouldering besides making the thread.


Yay for new thread!

Aside from creating the thread araveugnitsuga's responsibilities will be;

Managing the PMs for one half of the paricipants.
Sending me the images from his half to reveal in thread.
(Any additional tasks that he wants :smallamused:)

Contrary to popular belief there really isn't that much to this game :smallwink::smalltongue:

There was an issue brought up on the last thread that I didn't think I should include in the opening post, but still is very relevant.

Themes

Fin and I agreed on leaving the inclusion or exclusion of big mechanics on you, our public and volunteer pool.

So, we would appreciate if you gave us your opinion on this, either for it's inclusion, exclusion or recommending the mechanics to it.

Up until now we discussed how it would work, and we were thinking of working around very general, open themes as to not add much difficulty to the already daunting task of figuring how other volunteer could look.

However, you are our public and as such, your opinion matters the most to us.

Zefir
2011-01-31, 03:09 AM
Themes would be nice.

I think it will make it easier. The themes should just be easi so we can go on it.

Terry576

I suggest Halloween.

He actually. All this gender confusion is making me consider changing into a male avatar, though my Pink Hair stays.

And you haven't guessed in previous rounds, why not start now?

With twenty people in, It wouldn't be a luxury to augment the time limit a little , I'd say.

Why would an augment in the number of participants affect the time limit?
The participants still draw only one person, while the hosts manage only 10 participants.

Extensions are still allowed as per request.

2011-01-31, 04:30 PM
Not everyone find ideas or do avatar at the same rate. The more participants the more likely there is somme will take longer. Not to mention the real life thing somme pople happen to have wich might slow them down.
Also the more images, the more hosting related risks (image din't get to the host, image got corrupted, etc) are likely to accur.

In these condition, allowing yourself a slightly longer margin of time doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

You make interesting points.
Though as for the workload for us hosts, Fin has the last word on this, I have no time issues except maybe a weekly interruption to my Internet access on Fridays. As for the hosting of images, we went with no re-hosting as the guessing game is optional and more for fun than for points so there is little use in cheating by right-clicking. Finally, to assure that the products of this game/competition are preserved, I'm keeping a backup of all the images just in case something happens or someone wants to use an image made for him/her but can't find it.

As for the participants you can always ask for more time, so I don't think there really is an issue on that side.

Fin

This. I think a week is plenty seeing as people know this in advance of signing up, so they shouldn't be shocked when it's two minutes to deadline. Plus you have the safety net of requested extensions. I must insist on the extensions being requested in fairness to everyone else. We won't be waiting around for you if you have not warned us of a delay.

But please, you could be letting someone else down by not making a new avatar for them so please only sign up if you can commit to the task. We have so far had a 100% completion rate on all avatars, it would disappointing to ruin that now.

Also thanks to araveugnitsuga for answering all these questions and setting up the thread, I have had a mad few days in real life. Also my most humble apologies for the gender mix-up!

Either Fin or I will PM you with the name of whom you will draw.
You draw him and PM the image back to the host who sent you the PM.

After all entries are received or the Time runs out Fin will post all of the images without name. In this period you may try guessing who draw whom.
After two days it is revealed who draw what and to whom.

Ok, first a quick apology. The last few days I have been preparing for a pretty important job interview. As a result I haven't given this the attention it needs (again many thanks to araveugnitsuga for that). The interview is tomorrow morning and as a result none of my PMs will go out until after that as I do not have the time. I have requested that araveugnitsuga do the same. I thank you all for your patience and if anyone has not received a PM by the end of play tomorrow feel free to PM me a very stern message.

Again thanks and sorry for the delay.

Since a few people tend to change their avatars, caused by the theme weeks and such stuff. Wouldn't it be a goo idea to post their normal avatar so everyone can go here and look ?

For those who change constantly or plan to change, it is normal procedure to post them here (looks at smuchmuch, self and Zefir) before changing with a small note explaining the change. Though I believe some people change because they wouldn't like renditions of their current avatars, (like what Domo tried to do last time to prevent repetition).

It's a bit of a grey area that is being left up to those who do incur on it to reason on.

Zefir
2011-02-02, 02:46 AM
I live in the grey Zone of the grey Zone since noone is going to redraw my Avatar. Just to massive detail or whatever.

I don't mind if someone has an other idea for my avatar. Oh and maybe someone needs to know what the username means it's the spoken language of C4 in german.

Question. The old avatars we made that the receiver has not used. Is it their property or still ours if they haven't touched it? For example, Gimliggamer has not used the avatar I made for him (not saying you have to, now :smallwink:) so is it safe to put it up for adoption?

I would say the avatar you make for someone else is akin to gift. A gift tailored toward a specific playgrounder who's design and composition are meant to evoke the feel of the playgrounder or eir avatar in a determined moment.

As such, that avatar is not in fact property of it's maker, but of the receiver. However, I also think the receiver is bound by the workings of the honour system that functions upon requests and is to give due credit and respect to the image that is being given to em as a gift.

That's my thoughts on the subject, but again, our public is free to voice their opinions on the subject.

Note:I've used Spivak's gender neutral pronouns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spivak_pronoun), those are not misspellings of plurals

but maybe this one not as important, but how do I draw someone when I do not know whether a guy or girl?

Sure, I can deduce from the avatar, but where I am sure that man does not hide behind the woman and vice versa?
especially in today?

If you can't tell what gender someone is, check the little blue or pink symbol below their avatar.

If that isn't there, then you get to pick what gender they are. :smalltongue:

Whether or not you guys believe me, its a little to late for that now but, I also finished the day we were assigned people. Now its just sitting there, with me wondering: I finished it too fast, is it missing something?

once you finish work, you are happy with it, stop thinking ..
because at the time when you try to improve it may happen that the result will be worse ...
at least for me, it's so true ...

Ok, to all the speedy people. It is not a race, though I do appreciate the desire to get it done.

To the slower people, no pressure, but if all the entries are in before the deadline we will do the reveals earlier.

Swings and roundabouts really :smallamused:

So, I should PM Fin as well?

Fin
2011-02-06, 09:34 AM
Nope, you are on araveugnitsuga's list so you should send your PM to him. You did receive your PM telling you who to draw from him didn't you? :smallconfused:

I TRIED AND THEY WERE AWFUL AND DIDN'T EVEN REALLY WORK. But I guess if my subject wants me to say what my other idea... well yeah it was really only one concrete other idea I can remember now... well if my subject wants to know what they missed out on I could always just say.

Ok, we are still waiting on that one final submission. But I realistically can't put this off much longer as you have all been waiting so patiently. So I will do the reveal thread when I get home from work tonight, that way we get a reveal thread today but still gives are last entrant a chance. I won't be back from work for about 9 hours. Thanks again for being so patient

Wow, that was amazing. Many thanks for that avatar, araveugnitsuga :).
(This post will be edited if the above guess is wrong, but I'm fairly confident in it =p)

Also, since it's not going to fool anybody:

19. Zefir by Me
The idea behind this avatar stemmed from Zefir's request in the Gender Bender topic for a GB'ed avatar of Toric. I don't know how or when, but somehow, when I was trying to gather ideas, his hammer reminded me of mochi (it's a rice cake that, in Japan, is traditionally made by pounding a hammer against the batter until it is ready), so I decided to gender-bend Toric, put her in a Kimono, and had him use his hammer to try to make mochi.

I'm not going to try to guess the rest, since I accidentally found out who drew at least four of these submissions.

I'll ask it again. What do you other Inkscape people do to make you avatars come in such good quality? I mean, your lines aren't pixely, but mine are. All I do is make them around default avatar size, then edit the parts sticking out without shrinking the avatar to make it fit in 120 by 120. Then I do that export box thing that Trazoi's guide showed everyone.

An example of good quality, both in art and in resolution, is Lightning. Very well done Saturn. :smallbiggrin: b
It tells me I need to work on being more not "classic OotS style" with my avatars.

Alrighty, alrighty, Lightning was me. I even tried to put Elder Tofsu as the artist, and he's not even playing.

I actually draw really big. The thickness of my lines are usually 8px. The end product would probably be around 360x360px, but I just press the "export this document or selection as a bitmap image" and I just make the largest dimension 120px. And "poof"! You got an avatar. Sometimes the avatar is too much and the 120 pixel limit doesnt look very good, and sometimes it does.

He's gotten a bit of a tan since the last time.

Looks the same to me. And to the above post: PERMISSION GRANTED.
For more hints look at the katana.

Well to me it doesn't look pixel-y. Your avatars never had the problem as far as i know. Perhaps its your monitor... or the fact that you have superior eyesight to see the abnormalities of avatars... or at least of your own.

Ditto. In absolutely none of your avatars have I ever seen anything resembling pixelation (also, aside from the tan, I can't see any difference between the two shinigamis that you posted, either). I think whatever resolution you normally work in is fine.

kinda trusting ninjaman jugement here but ti does lokk like her style a bit
I'm saying it's domo represented because of the shadowy background

Image 2

Zephir/Ninjaman

Pretty sure of me here. The sOOts style but slightly taller body. and of course ninjaman is a ninja

/Terry

Well there weren't that many people with katans to start with so if teutonic knight and ninja man are already placed, that's Terry represnted here.

Not sure but the banner/card style look a lot like what the did for zephir.

Domo/Licoot

Not sure why everyone say licoot (is there a not so pricvate joke i missed somewhare ?) but okay. and of course the style is unmistakable.

I'm goign to say Dr epic for the hand drawn screen sretcher. drawing look a little different from last time but he could ahve ben rushed or ti could be on pupose, dunno.

Oh urg.. the garish neon pinkness of those hair, I'm red/green deficiant and i still find it garrish.
It's a nice avatar otherwise, but you should have gone a few tone ligher here.

Uh sorry, I'm mostlyguessing by elimination sice he's the only one from wich i've never seen a piece of art before.
could just be a joke from anyone, too. i really couclend't say.

Well I don't hink anyona had trouble getting it, so hurray, I guess.

I have nothing agist guys with glasses but after the twelve Joes from last round. it was kind of feeling redundant The harder was to find somme ideas here without doing yet another mafia avatar (well there's one, kinda), .. so I poked around with different sutff an tried iomme ideas around.
Execution kinda suffered though.

So there's one who's just your avatar remade (with a variant (http://s917.photobucket.com/albums/ad15/smuchmuch/avis/Draw%20%20your%20Friends/?action=view&current=slizzardthinking2.png). Also had a gender bendered version in the work but not enough time to finsh), two terrible punn based (I'll let you find those out, they aren't really hard (or that clever to be honnest)) and the two last on you entry in Iron Poet. (kinda tried to get a little elaborate on those, failed miserably I'm afraid.)
Congratulation on making it to round 2 by the way.

It doesn't look that Pixelly to me. I don't really see the problem.

Personally i just make my avatar in a 120*120 box in inkscape and conver tthem to PNG with GIMP.

or the fact that you have superior eyesight to see the abnormalities of avatars... or at least of your own.

Really? That means I am an artist!

Anyway yeah, it's probably because I look at other people's work to see how I can improve, and in doing so, I look back at mine and realize something wrong. I guess pixely isn't the right word, more like, the edges of some lines aren't really smooth. You can see the gray pixels used to make the image show up properly in PNG as opposed to on Inkscape SVG. Around mouths are where I notice most of these pixels. The lines don't look like smooth lines.

Example: Valeo Lancer from my Adoption Center (he's single open)

http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/8691/valeolancer.png

The lance looks jagged on the left side, like stairs, and the mouth has grayer pixels and the bottom of the middle and two curves at the ends.

(Sorry, I asumme you are fereing to my previous post. Fixed it)

edit: ah okay, that's the real image 11. Now that's more like it, a lot more like it.
I'd say it's Domo, still by Xelliea.


it could be me in place 1 by Akrim elf. (And if it what I think it is, then that would be hilarious.) Or it could C-Lam.

edit: according to felyndra that'd be C LAm in place 1

Fin
2011-02-11, 02:22 AM
I would just like to point out that Image 11 has been changed to the correct image, as araveugnitsuga pointed out earlier some confusion involving a third party meant wrong image was submitted.

That has been corrected now

Felyndiira
2011-02-11, 04:44 AM
Since enough people have already guessed, might as well (even if I do know 4 of them for certain - please don't look if you don't want those artists spoiled):


1. C-Lam By Arkim.Elf
This is such a deviation from your normal style that I would never have guessed this if I didn't see it in your photobucket account (and you would have pretty much made all of my subsequent guesses wrong as I puzzle over which one is yours =p). C-Lam was a guess from process of elimination.

2. NinjaMan By Zefir
Have to agree with smuchmuch on this one.

3. Terry756 by Teutonic Knight
The curvature on the katana and the subject matter pins it to Teutonic Knight, and Terry756 is the only person here, to my knowledge, that is also present in BleachITP.

4. Teutonic Knight by C-Lam
Once again, unfair advantage due to photobucket. That's all that I will say.

5. Xelliea by Ninjaman
Xelliea was pretty obviously the target. Guessing who the avatar is drawn by is much harder, though the body proportions and the use of shadow effects suggest Ninjaman.

6. Mr. Saturn by Dogmantra
Unless if this is done by someone else to deliberately confuse us, it's consistent with the drawing of Zefir last time.

7. Licoot by Domo
Domo's style is very distinctive. The hair pretty much points to Licoot.

8. Gimliggamer by DrEpic (name fixed)
Huge drawing =p. The drawing has the same bandana as Gimli, so that connection seemed pretty logical.

9. DrEpic by Terry756
The borders on the eyes matches Terry's drawing style. Also, to distinguish between this and #2, Terry is fond of more curved bodies overall, as he even stated in a previous post.

10. araveugnitsuga by Mr. Saturn
This was on his photobucket as well, although Saturn's style is very distinctive. He's one of the few artists that draws hair in that fashion, and the precision of details combined with the body size pretty much points to his work.

11. Domo by Xellian
I know absolutely nothing about Xellian's style, so I pinned him on the last and most uncertain entry by process of elimination.

12. billtodamax by Licoot
If the avatar had hair, it would have been easier to pin. Licoot's avatars usually have eye placements medium-low, though, which is suggested by this avatar. He's also the only person that I know that draws hats in that fashion. Finally, the picture is in his photobucket =p.

13. Me by araveugnitsuga
The colored lines and the distance between the eyes points to ara's style. Aside from that, though, the avatar is gorgeous =D. Thank you.

14. Nevitan by Billtodamax
It's very much Nevitan, with the haunter and all. The wider body structure on Gary and the line width suggests that it's Bill, though this one is really a coil flip (I'm banking on the chance that Gimlig won't get Nevitan twice in a row and that it's not Xelliea, since I do not know how Xell draws).

15. Smuchmuch by Gimliggamer
This one throws a huge wrench into all of my guessing D=. The only reason I guessed smuchmuch is because only he and C-Lam remained on my list, and he drew a lich avatar at some point (whereas I did not find any death knight roleplays from C-Lam). As to who this is from...anyone's guess, really. Putting down Gimlig by elimination.

16. Arkim.Elf by Szilard
Cake ish lie! Wow, it took me a while before I finally got the reference (and with it, the subject). The drawing style is standard Szilard just from all of his past works that I've seen in the various IA competitions. Everything matches down to the line style, the body style, and the decision to use the main character from Arkim's comic.

17. Irbis by Nevitan
The eye size (they are a lot more circle-oval than most people's) and the distance between the eyes is the first thing that pointed to Nevi. After that, a comparison with his previous avatars revealed similar proportions (~1:2.75) and the same body width, so that's my best guess =p. The costume is also consistent with Irbis's old avatar, so this has to be Irbis.

18. Szilard by Smuchmuch
No mistaking smuchmuch's style =p. The lizard and the second avatar marks the subject as Szilard.

19. Zefir by Me
It's totally a guess. I swear XD.

20. Dogmantra by Irbis
Everyone else already made it clear that this is DM-Pony (also, it does say D.M. on the side) =p. Irbis is an educated guess based on the line coloring and the fact that he's the most likely candidate for this joke (though I could be totally wrong).

Zefir
2011-02-11, 05:00 AM
Well I don't get it but that is more caused by my poor knowlege of chines/japan food. but I really like it. Oh and its Taric not Toric its a char from League of Legend And I own with him^^. Could you give me a bigger one of it pls?

Possible, but you won't find any roleplay as a Death knight from me either.
So if it is me indeed, that kind of fall complelty out of the blue.

Weither C LAM is a WOW player, I believe. Don't they have death knights in this game ?
So I think more probable it's her.

Yea, I'm a WOW player and I also had a death knight avatar for a while, so I'm considering if thats mine too.

Anyway, here's my guesses:

1. ????-????
2. ???? - for Ninjaman
3. ???? - for Terry
4. C-Lam - to Teutonic Knight (Totally a random guess, I swear.:smalltongue:)
5. Ninjaman - to Xelliea (The avatar is clearly for Xelliea, and it looks like Ninjamans style)
6. Dogmantra - to Mr.Saturn (haven't really seen Dogmantras art so much, but its clearly for Saturn.)
7. Domochevsky - to Licoot (The style is typical Domo, and the hair looks like Licoots.)
8. Dr.Epic - to Gimliggamer( The bandana looks like the one on his orignal avatar)
9. Terry - to Dr.Epic (It looks like a doctor, and very typical Terrys style)
10. Mr.Saturn - to araveugnitsuga (The avatar have pink hair, cmon.)
11. ????-????
12. Licoot - billtodamax (The avatar looks like billtodamaxs, and the style looks like Licoots)
13. araveugnitsuga - to Felyndiira (The avatar looks like Felys original one, and the style is a little bit like araveugnitsugas)
14. ???? - to Nevitan (The haunter and everything)
15. ???? - C-Lam, maybe for me since I play WOW and I had a Death Knight avatar before.)
16. ???? - ????
17. ???? - to Irbis (obviously)
18. Smuchsmuch - to Szilard (the style and multiple numbers av avatars)
19. Feylindiira - Zefir (You says it your self :smalltongue:)
20. ???? - Dogmantra (Its a giant pony for gods sake)

Ah, that's probably a more likely situation then. I basically narrowed it down to two people and two entries and did a coin flip, so my guesses for #1 and #15 is probably totally off =p.

I'll ask it again. What do you other Inkscape people do to make you avatars come in such good quality? I mean, your lines aren't pixely, but mine are. All I do is make them around default avatar size, then edit the parts sticking out without shrinking the avatar to make it fit in 120 by 120. Then I do that export box thing that Trazoi's guide showed everyone.

...

I use Paint (formerly known as Paintbrush).

Smoothness? It's just a question of proper resizing.

Yes, I know my avatars suck due to this, you don't have to remind me :smallfrown:


The lance looks jagged on the left side, like stairs, and the mouth has grayer pixels and the bottom of the middle and two curves at the ends.

Can you send me a bigger version? I'd like to test my shrinking process on it.

The lance looks jagged on the left side, like stairs, and the mouth has grayer pixels and the bottom of the middle and two curves at the ends.

I don't see any excessed jaggedness. Just remember that a pixel has 1 colour, so if you cut across a lot of them diagonally you will get more or less jagged edges. (hitting the corners)
The program might of course compensate for this by exporting the "mean" colour of the pixel (half black half colourless -> grey), making the edge a bit more "blurry".

This would mean that you can draw a horizontal or diagonal line and just be plain unlucky with its placement. (and get a grayish edge)

Or so I think anyway. (I don't really think about it while drawing)

---

And Irbis, I don't remember any excess jaggedness in yours either.

Making albums private is a nice feature indeed. :smalltongue:
Its not nice that sub-ablums can't be made private when the main album is open - I think it was possible before.
Thanks for the honour of being a decoy though - although I would find it hard to believe that anyone was actually fooled by it!

Any software with Bitmap editing capabilities can do it.
And I suspect Vector only can too, though I don't know as Fireworks is Bitmap/Vector editing.

To reproduce the effect of the background, one is a black vector path and a white vector path that has been blurried slightly (Fireworks doesn't die when the effect is used, even when on gigantic canvas), and the other one is a path filled with a Eliptical Gradient made of the rainbow in pastel.

The letters are all vector paths.

Hey hey hey, reveal thread will be up today. Just have a few errands to run first. A couple of things to keep y'all busy in the time though.

As we said earlier on (in this thread methins) we are going to open up the option of themes to these games, but we do not want to thrust stuff onto you that you do want to do. Like we have said, this game belongs as much to those playing as it does to us running it. So can people start voting for whether or not they would like themes in the next round. I would like for the sake of ease all votes to be structured like this...

Yay, themes!

or

Boo, themes!

Myself and araveugnitsuga will be choosing the themes as there will be certain criteria they have to qualify in order to avoid losing the essence of this game.

Thank you, the reveal thread will be up in a few!

If it was a competition like Iron avatarist, where there is a jury and a winner, then it would make a certain sense.

But as it.... *shrugs*...If the theme is good ,hurray it's a goood source of inspiration. If it is not, as far as I'm concerned, I'll just be all too happy to make one vaguely related hastily drawn avi per batch and compelty ignore it for the rest.



im so confused :P

basicaly those are YES and NO to themes.
Got to vote weither you want themes or not in future rounds.

Cool banner how did you copy the middle part?:smallconfused:

Oh and, I'm still wondering how much interest we can keep with this thread since its almost going at light-speed. IA happens every month with varying levels of interest, but also requires more levels of coordination and deals out awards.

This, on the other hand, requires each participant only draw one avatar but happens close to every other week. I'm fine with Boo, Themes!, but that could change depending on what the theme is. Should it be a community-chosen theme where we have sort of a say on what kind of theme we'd like?

Well, personally i'm pretty much done with DYF. It was a nice change of pace, but i think i'm tapped out. :smallsmile:
(There's also only so much you can do with someone's avatar, especially for those repeatedly participating. This kinda lives on fresh blood.)

What about alternating themed with non-themed, that way there would be a nice mix, we'd have twice as long to decide on a theme and it would keep both sides of the electorate happy.

A huge thank you to everyone that participated and please keep voting on the topic of themes. Not too sure when the next game will start, might leave it a week so everyone can recharge. But it is something I will discuss with araveugnitsuga.

Thanks again and I hope everyone likes the avvie that was made for them!

Our policy is that if the quota is filled we start, it would get kinda confusing if we forewent that, also, we would like to keep the voting all in one place.

As for themes, we appreciate suggestions for themes, but we prefer to have the issue with their inclusion cleared up beforehand.

Same here.
It's not that I'm unhappy with mine, it doesn't look bad and it's certainky different, but I'm not sure I understand the idea behind it.

I really like how Teutonic went the route of "Let's check Terry's sig" to find inspiration, then made what I honestly envisioned Karite to look like.

That made my day.

I know, this round I was insidious, but just to note, has disappeared - we know it through your feet ...
and also do not see why Domochevsky avatar always be only a dark silhouette
only the rain, I failed ...

Lots of those werent for/by the ones i thought. Well at least i got my right.

Edit:
Mayby you could just make the theme optional.
So that it was just for inspiration.

I am glad. Now to get a late start on a GB avatar.

By the way, that ^ made my day. Recognition +1

I suspect he means "in 3 hours". Though... why 3 days after the 12.? Sounds kinda arbitrary.
