Draw your Friends IV - Already Running

Welcome to the fourth 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 The Grandmaster of Friendly Administration, 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.


Themes

As of the last polling, themes are going to be a part of DYF
This round however is not going to have themes.
If you wish to cast your opinion on the topic and didn't do so on the last topic, do so now with either Yay Themes! or Boo Themes!
The current count is 4 against 3


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.

Adding existing players to the wishlist would make this thread a very empty place, and would ruin the fun of seeing who arrives first.

Also, fixed it.

This is one of the few events that is keeping me drawing even with my job suddenly becoming more stressful. I don't think I can stop joining at this moment despite participating in all three of the previous ones :).

So yeah, I'm in =3.


EDIT: My vote on themes is neutral, although I would like to ask that you keep the themes broad and open to creativity (preferably as ideas rather than objects or specific periods) should you decide to use them. For example, a theme like "bread" would be a lot more restrictive, while themes like "childhood" or "pain" are considerably more open and feels more as a guiding line rather than a restraint.

Not yet, regulars are the ones who have been with us since the first DYF. Whoever, eventually the requisites will change.
We also have a veteran, but that title is easy to guess whom it is.

Or alternatively, it could be something more akin to your name. Irbis is russian for snow leopard. That's what you get when you don't have a blatantly obvious name that dictates what all your avatars are going to look like... namely me. Haha.

Blatantly obvious :smallannoyed:

It's so obvious I've seen it spelt 20 different ways this week alone :smallmad:

That someone even bothered to look what it means and how it is spelled fills me with dread.

Anyway, anything snow themed, both snow leopards and snow catgirl pirates, is fine, heck, anything not snow-themed is fine, too :smalltongue:

Please, you can probably cheat with photobucket by handing it in early and then deleting it and uploading another thing with the same name and asking everyone to clear cache.

Hand it in early, do it for your host.

I prefer the delays being announced because they were properly requested than just approaching the deadline with entries missing.

And I'd rather make consolation images for those who didn't get drawn instead of the delays getting delays.

Finally, everyone who has played KOTOR 2 will agree that delays can be a great thing.

The image is shiny, so shiny that when fully loaded it blocks 80% of your screen PERMANENTLY. It also features amazingly intelligent AI capable of drawing with crayolas on a mirror, and then scanning it, so you can see yourself on your screen with added doodles.

Hmm..... :smallyuk:

I still need two submissions and as of yet have no update as to how many still need to be sent to araveugnistuga (so happy at how quick I can type that name now :smalltongue:) which indicates to me that there are still some outstanding for him.

C'mon people, mush!

I'm still missing two.

Right PM's are going out to those we are still waiting on, the PM will basically be a 24 hour notice to get their submission in. That way they have fair chance to do it and we don't keep everyone else waiting too long, although I do appreciate you have all been waiting patiently long enough and I thank you for that.

If we don't have something by then we will do the reveal without them :smallfrown:

EDIT: :smallannoyed: One of the people yet to submit has a full inbox so I can't PM them! So all we can do is hope they notice the thread. I am just worried that they may think they have sent it and they haven't and so don't think it is them I am talking about :smallfrown:

Ok, we are just waiting on one more and we have been made aware of their situation. So in the interest of getting all the submissions in eventually, rather than most of them now it looks like we will just have to hold out a little longer.

Thanks again for your patience.

Suggestions for "mini-games":
Draw a banner for use in the first post.
Come up with a flashy title for Fin with an appropriate abbreviation.
Draw 3 smilies to use on the boards.
Run three laps around the building and see who finish first.
Come up with a rhyme including the words "Fin", "win" and "hippopotamus".
Draw an image of yourself/avatar patiently waiting for the results to be posted.

Germany went through hyperinflation in the 20s. The German Mark decreased in value by like a billion pecent, so much that people were using money to light fires. Hitler ended up curing that inflation and depression, be we all know how that ended.

I guessed you. Though, based on other people's guesses, I may be wrong.

Personally, I'm surprised that I've been guessed twice already. I mean, I don't do much avataring, so it's not like there's a lot to go by.

I know which one it's not =p. If Fin didn't make image #3 (me), I would actually be quite surprised.

My guess would be either image 4 or image 9. I can say with some minor confidence that one of the two is by you and one of them is by Irbis, although that depends entirely on my other guesses being correct.

Kinda strange, though, that it's actually somewhat easier to identify the artists than the subjects this time (to the point that even the subjects themselves can't identify this) =p.

2011-03-04, 10:55 PM
Image 2 is Akrim elf by Terry.
(curved body. though image 7... could be Image 7 by terry and UImage by Kurfle)

Image 3 is Felyndiira. Might be by GrlumpTheElder.
The photoshoped painting remind me of one of his avatars.

Image 4 is me, and I'd say it might be by Fin
(Not sure. could be Irbis like fey said. If it's Pinky then the gradient are a newie.)

Oh and: "No I'm not !")

Image 6; GrlumpTheElder
(I can't help but feel that 'The ice cream thief still on the loose ' would be perfect for a silly samll ABR plot)

Image 9 is Dogmantra in faux Domoshevsky style. Here I'd be tempted to say it's from Pinky
(maybe if he was feeling facetious ? Or maybe it's from Fin.. Or could be anyone really. no real way to tell for sure.)

Picture 12. Not sure who that is, I think it's supposed to be a trophy from IA but I'm too lazy to check everyone sig tpo see who it might bemlo,ng too. the silhoute look something from Ninjaman

Image 17 is Elder Tsoffu, I think. From Irbis maybe ?.

Image 18 might be Fin, I don't know from who, though. I'mtempted to say 'That personn with an unpronouncable name, that isn't easy to nickname aither and I'm feeling too lazy to copypaste' because I never had any occasion to see somme of his/her art before.

Image 19 is Slizzard (I think). From Gilgihammer maybe ?

Image 10 is by Akrim Elf. image 16is ninjaman.
I already saw image 1 before, i'm pretty sure of that but I can' remeber well.

And that's about all I'm feeling like guessing.

The problem is that those who hand it late have had justifications, normally because of hardware or software limitations and doing something akin a punishment would be kinda harsh.

However, something will be done in regards to deadline pushing and unannounced exceptions as this round it really has gone way out of hand.

Yea but they had a week to finish it. If they where late becourse of software problems then they can just tell us and we wonīt be mad. But the can still not come to th next one as it is plain annoying, and then they would propperbly also be late for next one, as wouldnīt have fixed it.

2011-03-09, 01:30 PM
We'll take the suggestions about late submissions under advisement but for the time being (this thread at least) there will be no name revealing in order to push people into hurrying up/punishments etc.

Also, I have decided enough is enough on waiting for the last submission. I apologise to those affected but I am going to do the reveal thread now, so look out for it! :smallsmile:

I question the logic behind the one for me.

By the way, here is the properly sized image
http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/7271/ylden.png

I basically googled "Yldenfrei" and this was the first thing that came up and wasn't some sort of Nazi propaganda.

Are you sure?
I'm getting quite a number of different non-nazi images, in fact, I can't seem to find what you based your on.

I got the questionable results that Herpestidae got, would link it but I think it would be against forum rules. I love how the picture that Yldenfrei drew of Xelliea is in the results that araveugnitsuga got though, this game is taking over the internet! :smallbiggrin::smalltongue:

I've currently ran out of space, literally, by function of having so many awesome avatars in my banner.

I absolutely love what Felyndiira did with my avatar.

Thanks a lot, orz.

No wonder I couldn't find mine. :smallannoyed::smallbiggrin:

That's fine. Bring on the next one. Irbis, did you see what I was going for with the hair?

Huh, no wonder I couldn't find which one was for me. :smalltongue:

Google search is highly geographic (or at least, IP-centric and browsing history based), that's why I don't rely on it too much for wild guessing information. ^_^ It's much better to use the forum search instead, at least that's where I got inspiration for Xelliea.
I wouldn't be surprised if Arbeit Macht Frei popped up somewhere in your search. It's happened to others before. That's why I stopped using Frei as a username.

@Herp: That's a LOL there. :smalltongue:

My inspiration was Huckleberry Finn riding a beast with fins.

And I didn't have time to do any guessing this time around. :smallfrown:


And I like my avatar! Thanks Ninjaman! It wasn't what I would have expected, but it was also immediately recognizable as mine. :smallbiggrin:

To be honest, no? :smalleek:

Unless it's a big fish swallowing something. Post/PM clarification please?

Lately I have avatars coming out not the way that I intended. This time it was pretty hard to still make it look like hair and ears at the same time.

Glad you like it. I still wish i had time to make it better (i'm suprosed no one commented on just how screwed up th perspective is, particulary on the one with background.).
I'm sorry it's quite rushed in, I had to leave town after a while so i had to finish it quite fast.

fin, i like my avatar, thanks. i'l put as soon as i'm tired of the clone thing (wich should be pretty fast actualy.)

[QUOte]Uhm... what's up with the second to last picture?[QUOte]

from what I understand from the explanation he gave about the picture he made of me in the last thread, there's a logic behing it. It's actually very simple if you know what it's about but that's something you wouldn't think off just like that.

(Won't say more because here I don't want to ruin his fun but if you ask him by PM, he'll probably tell you.)

Ah, yes, it looks beautiful :smallbiggrin:

It's just, when you said something about special effect, I looked at it again, and though: Hmm, that side strand looks like tail... the middle strand like flipper... and the forehead strands like maw devouring something blue... Is that reference to pirates, or something...?

Overall, I don't know if it is OC, or based on the above, but I do like it :smallwink:
