Draw your Friends V - Wish List Open

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

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

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

They are here! What the theme will be is yet to be determined between myself and Pinky, look out for an announcement shortly.

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.


The Wishlist

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.

Unless you meant to adress someone an a personanl basis, I think 's'il vous plait' would be a more apropriate formulation here.

"S'il vous pla褾" is used for people you have never met before, or don't know well, or to be polite to someone older that you are or senior to you in some form.

"S'il te pla褾" is used within the family, to close (how close is difficult to define !) friends, and from adults to children.

I think the title of this competition pretty much makes the S'il te pla褾 the correct form.

Or the lighter and softer for kids remake.

Fin
2011-03-16, 02:01 PM
@^ - Yes, yes you can.

Ok guys we have a theme. Nice and vague so interpret it as you will. The theme for the fifth ever Draw Your Friends is...


Grittier and Edgier!

Expect your assignments by the end of the day. :smallsmile:

Deadline is gonna be...


Wednesday, 23rd of March 2011

Have fun!

So.. rough?

C-Lam
2011-03-16, 02:56 PM
Ehm.... I'm not sure I understand this theme...

Fin
2011-03-16, 03:24 PM
So.. rough?

Not necessarily. Firstly, we kept the theme very open to interpretation so we can't really spell what it means out for you. But examples that spring to mind would be maybe putting a person's avvie into a gritty scene, like a fight scene or some kind of shady activity. Alternatively it could be that you re-style the avvie into a completely different art style, which could qualify as edgier. However if you want to draw the avvie 'rougher' as that is how you interpret it go for it. :smallsmile:

Though please don't feel pressered by the themes feel free to stick to them as strictly or a loosely as you like.

Sorry for doublepost but. Don't we need a PM if you have set the date? I haven't got one until now.

Fin
2011-03-16, 05:10 PM
Don't worry all the PMs will be in over the next 24 hours. I do apologise though, I put the deadline up before I got confirmation from Pinky that he can get his PMs out. If he is delayed I will extend the deadline, do not worry.

billtodamax
2011-03-16, 05:11 PM
Fin said he'd be sending them out towards the end of the day. I dunno, wait a couple hours I guess.

araveugnitsuga
2011-03-16, 09:20 PM
For those translating things and getting weird results or those who don't understand the theme:

Grittier and Edgier is a phrase used to denote the conversion of a seemingly peaceful or perceived as soft, fluffy or appealing to child concept, or even a plain normal concept into something which springs horrors into the mind of the viewer, or just deals great doses of not-present-before action in both the euphemism and literal interpretation of the word.

In other words, adapt something into what could be perceived as more "mature".
Disclaimer, mature in this case means geared toward a teenage psicopath mind.

The forum is evolving, splines are being reticulated. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/announcement.php?f=30&a=58)


Interesting theme. I wonder how I should do this.


And what does searching have to do with anything?

It's how you stalk look for someone interests and preferred subjects.

It's a great aid when dealing with Avatarless people or you wish to produce something that could be deeper than a reinvention of one persons avatar.

But at the end, it's the effort and meaning you put into it what makes a drawing great or deep.

At least that's my take.

ShadowySilence
2011-03-17, 12:35 AM
I never even tried using search until joining this thread, and now that I actually want to use it it has been disabled :smallsigh: (temporarily at least).

Regardless I am excited to take part in this and I hope I can make a good enough avatar for my selected person!

Teutonic Knight
2011-03-17, 12:54 AM

I stalk research my prey to find inspiration for a creation worthy of their beholding.

@^ August: I did not look at your post before writing mine. What does it mean that stalk is the first word to come to mind (and then to be underlined).

A dark day this be, I had to un-install my beloved inkscape*. :smallfrown:
Have anyone else felt that the "new" 0.48 might be slower than 0.47? It took longer time to load my references and opening the .svg files. (In addition to moving my tool-bars, making it cumbersome to use on the netbook).

*And hurriedly reinstall the previous version.

The aim is to draw a comic/scene involving the avatar you drew in the last round meeting either your own avatar or another avatar you drew recently either for yourself or someone else.
Please do not use the avatar that will be revealed on Friday
Please feel free to submit these mini game entries as soon as you have completed them so that everyone can see and provide a nice distraction whilst we wait for the reveal thread.
If you have not played before and so don't have any previous avatars to include feel free to draw any two avatars meeting provided that neither of them is the one you are submitting for Friday's reveal.
This game is completely optional, only participate if you want to and have the time. It is not a mandatory part of Draw Your Friends

Should I change my forum time to match with yours oh great leader of this competition that follows your flow of time because you are in charge?

To me it says Thursday 7:25 pm, but if i change to your time, i suddenly only have an hour and a half to finish.

Two hours actually.

And it's not my time, I work mainly with GMT 0 because it's the easiest one to calculate from.

I'm now noticing that one of the reasons of so many last minute submissions is that there is no real defined time for the deadline. -Which is now wrecking chaos as many participants notice that they have a lot less time then they thought.

Even though we want to keep this relatively laid-back, last round it just got ridiculous, so this time, we have to keep the reveal running on time, for the sake of credibility and order.

The point is, get it in sometime (give or take a couple hours) around now. OR you could make a complex table that shows relative due dates and times depending on a poll of participants' time zones.

I think the tables wouldn't be that complex. I just post

Hour post was made and 1 option per GMT (24 in total)
And bellow due date.

The posting of the avatars is going to happen in half an hour, however, before the 48 hours after the reveal are reached, you can still send it in, if only for honours sake.

2011-03-25, 12:07 AM
And now
All the images sent to me and Fin as of 4:59 GMT:0

THE DRAWINGS

Guessing ends in exactly 48 hours where the reveal happens.

I blame my first assumption on the grittiness of the first 10 pictures.

I think most likely that he's taking about image 11; the figure with red hair on a roller skate. At first glance (and in the right state of mind i suppose), her braid looks like a little like there's blood suirting out of her cap.

Image 15 but it look more scribbly that edgy, really but i do oh so approve of the pun.

Totally unexpected, but totally appreciated avatar! :smallbiggrin: Thanks to whoever did it! (And I'm glad no blood is actually involved in it! :smalltongue:)

So August, in how long is the reveal time in your GMT -0 ?

I said the reveal was going to be exactly 48 hours after the posting of the images.

That happened at GMT: 0, 5:00 a.m. aprox. ergo, it will happen at GMT:0, 5:00 a.m. of today (GMT:0 It's already Sunday).

You can find GMT:0 at http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/



In 1 hour and 21 minutes aprox.

Teutonic Knight
2011-03-26, 11:40 PM
@^ Thank you for that.

ATTENTION any and all participants, bookmark that site August posted so that you know exactly how much time you have for each contest.

Szilard
2011-03-26, 11:55 PM
Alternatively, know which time zone you are, which is usually defined as GMT +X. Or UTC. Either way: List of time zones in relation to GMT (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_zones_by_UTC_offset)

Like me in California, it's GMT-8.

Warning: daylight savings time screws everything over. :smalltongue:

Not really, but it is one of my favorites. Just seemed like the last time Akrim.elf made an avatar for me, which depicted a T Knight holding a Pokedex. Basically, yay Pokemon reference.

You wrote some of them wrong.
14 is for Bradakan not C-lam
19 is for Mr Saturn, i think.

EDIT Thank you GrlumpTheElder, i love my avatar.

There's three "edges" taped to the wall, and the mime is shoveling "grit" into it with a toy shovel. It was meant to be a bit of a postmodern avatar, with a implausibility of solid dirt/grit being shoveled inside three 2-D lines taped to the wall.

Basically, abstract open-ended themes happened =p.

There's a perfectly good reason that the picture I drew looks like it was done in five minutes on MSPaint. It's because I did it on MSPaint, but it took me a good hour or so. I wanna get this straight right now: I am not very good at the pictures. I can't art particularly well. What I can do is have ideas and boy did I have tons of ideas. A gem-encrusted pistol, laying on a table in the dark. The sillhouette of a figure, hammer raised to crush the skull of another sillhouette. However, since I am not the best at arting, I could not realise these ideas in Inkscapical form. I can however, draw a sort of half-deliberately-bad, half-bad-by-necessity style in MSPaint. It has something of its own charm, if I do say so myself, and apparently at least one person agrees because they are currently using an avatar in the same style which they asked me to make. The grittiness and edginess and whathaveyou that's supposed to be there is not inherent in the image itself, but it's represented by the frustration I felt at being unable to create the pictures that I wanted to.

I hope you're not disappointed Zefir.

Ah, okay.

You confused me with postmodernism. I sorta thought it was a window, but it was taped, so maybe there was a pane of glass over it...

I said the reveal was going to be exactly 48 hours after the posting of the images.

You know, you could have waited 24 hours so that the last five pictures also had a chance to be guessed :smalltongue:

in truth, I was thrilled that I draw aravenisguu until I noticed the blue icons ... and in addition the topic ..
the inscription to blame my brother, my little idea has directed, for which I thank him:)

and I also thank Irbis, my avatar for this round was the first idea what I glimpsed the head (I can not take all round Chii:) and never would have thought that it ends at the beautiful portrait:)

and also I am glad that I am a bit confuse others and do not recognize me now:)

How can I be disappointed if you tried your best?
Ok I can't say its a greqat work or that it's the best I ever saw, but tthe main thing (I tend to forget it) is that you tried your best and don't mess with others. If I would do this I youldn't have joined this aver all cause I myyself think i do the worst avatars here.

Eh, fitting all these awesome avatars into sig is getting more and more difficult, I had to cut virtually all I could to make them fit into limit. Anyone knows hosting sites with particularly short links?

That being said, no one guessed what I draw and for who, again :smalltongue:

Glad you liked it. Though, trying to get more 'edges' duh into the picture while attempting to maintain OotS feel (by making the hair more rounded, and omitting a few details) was a bit more difficult than I imagined. Still, it was a good practice.

Just so there is no misunderstanding I drew your (Dogmantra's) avatar as a representation of what I have never seen from you (Really a representation of what I have never seen on this site as a whole! :smallbiggrin: ), centered on your avatar turned into a gritty sort of weird picture. I am sorry, it isn't the best (I am trying to break free of drawing in OOTS style avatars, I love to draw them but I want to expand my horizons as well. Sadly I am doing a bad job...)

Plus the minute I saw your first avatar I thought of the office for some reason and one of the many freakouts on the show.

tinypic has relatively short urls.

As for the Avatar I made, I'm not particularly into redrawing, yet, the theme kinda forced me to do so. So what initially was very similar to Szilard's avatar, morphed into something almost completely different, with the only similarity being the head (and we all know how recognizable OoTS heads are if it were not for hair/skintone).

Well, I definitely feel gritty now.:smallbiggrin:

As for TK, I already made an actual Teutonic Knight for him, so I could have added blood to it, but then it'd be way too easy to guess. :smalltongue: So I took inspiration from the fact that he was going around as a Teutonic Samurai, looked up a few pictures of samurai, thought of an actiony pose, and went off! And then ended up with an overly bloody avatar.:smalltongue:

At first I thought it was some sort of imposter that was copying licoot's avatar... but it turned out to be licoot himself!

dun, Dun, DUNNNNN! :smalltongue:



EDIT: Also, you're welcome Oblivion. I was actually first thinking about making a post-apocalyptic avatar. Something like Oblivion in a Bioshock "Big Daddy" costume. Then I thought a skater-girl to be rather "edgy" and i decided on that.

The impostor turns out to be the real one.
Still, something seems odd.
Mr Saturn, expert avatar scholar, get his guess wrong.
The plot thickens.
