Hey all you Christm/a/s-goers! Santa Loli back again for another week of collection, trying to get all of you in our Secret S/a/nta yearly event! Not so much to say this week, I hope you're all enjoying October, maybe already carving your pumpkins and such. Or if you live in the states Daylight Savings Time comes soon for some of you! Hopefully it won't affect your anime schedule too much. Well that's just about it. Feel free to discuss all your crafting and gifting needs! I'm sure other anons will help you out if you're having any troubles. It's nice to see little updates, I think it's inspiring. That's all this girl has to say for now, so let's move on to collecting some more emails! I can answer any questions not in the FAQ, but taking a look at previous threads in the archive wouldn't hurt either. Hey! Who used my picture? I wanted to post it ;_;

Can you ship internationally? :
Are you able/wish to send out X-mas cards (Specify amount)? :
Wishlist (Don’t be afraid to post links like MAL, or say you like a character or series. You can be as specific or as vague as you want here, this is ultimately to help the other /a/non in selecting a gift for you. Please don't just put "Surprise me.") :
[NEW] Card wishlist: This is what will be sent to everyone who gets assigned to send a card to you. Try to keep it relatively short; A favorite character or waifu/husbando, a couple of your favorite shows, etc.
[NEW] Are you willing to send extra gifts to anons who get grinched (do not receive a gift), Y/N?

Woops! I keep forgetting the Wiki link. Sorry friends, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Address_%28geography%29

FAQ:
>Q: What is Secret S/a/nta?
A chance to give and receive gifts from other /a/nons locally, nationally, or even globally with a bit of X-mas spirit!
>Q: Who is hosting this event?
Your friendly hosts are santafaggot, SantaShota, and SantaLoli. We are the same people who ran it last year.
>Q: Why should I participate? How can I trust anyone?
That’s for you to decide, in the past there have been multiple successful /ss/’s in the past, and all of this is greatly in the spirit of giving. Many /a/nons are hard at work every year on their cards and gifts, and is evidently shown in many of the threads. Be warned that sometimes you may not receive anything at all, and has happened. We try our best to prevent this from happening though. We somewhat urge you to use your real name to a degree; sometimes shipping messes up without it, especially internationally.

Get some christmas spirit anon!
>>
Also, sorry for quite a late thread this weekend, we didn't plan on it being like this. But, we try our best to space them out a little so that everyone can get an opportunity to participate or see it.
>>
So when's the due date/ when should we expect to get e-mails with our giftee?
>>
>>115569201
November 1st will be the cut off date, expect 2 to 3 more threads at most before that date! Assignments should be handed out within a week of that date.
>>
Just bought a ton of colored pencils. I'm ready to make some poorly drawn cards.
>>
I only have one question before I do anything. If I sign up for gift giving, does my /ss/ also give me something or is it by someone else?
>>
>>115569488
Sounds great anon! Personal handiwork always feels the most heartwarming to anons I'm sure.
>>
>>115569655
It goes around like a circle, your gift goes to someone, and then a different person sends you a gift. We'll be happy to see you participating this year!>>115569655
>>
Is there any way to know or have an estimate when they'll come? I move around a good amount and it would make things a lot easier...
>>
>>115569989
You can specifically send us an email by replying again to us from our confirmation and such. We can communicate with your s/a/nta to try to make sure everything can come at a greater convenience to you.
>>
reminder that there are too many people participating who havent been here long enough, or dont even browse [a/, and they will grinch the shit out of it
>>
>>115569989
The gifts? You better hope your anon is responsible.
>>
Is there an ssjr group this time around? I was part of that last time, and would like to stay loyal to them again if possible this time. If not though I'll gladly partake in the normal ss.
>>
m-maybe this year someone will posts the gifts or cards I gave out
>>
>>115570353
ssjr? I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but there was a separate group hosting a later Secret S/a/nta if that's what you meant, it was generally for everyone who didn't get to sign up on time. We didn't have anything to do with that, we just manage this earlier one, just like last year. You can partake in both if you wish! So that's all I have to say on this.
>>
Besides cards, which bracket has the most people?
Need to make sure to avoid that so I dont get a shitter
>>
>>115570881
10-25 bracket, mainly because of money issues.
>>
>>115570881
Similar to this question, and for the same purpose: Which bracket had the most grinches last year?
>>
>>115571194
Highest percentage of, that is.
>>
>>115571194
You can get grinched at the 50$ and up brackets for obvious reasons, but nobody really said what brackets were they grinched on the most.
>>
>>115571194
I don't know the exact calculations at the moment, it's just that 95% received their gifts. Santafaggot should have the data, but I'm sorry I can't exactly answer that. Just pick the bracket that you'd like to participate in is all the advice I can give.
>>
>>115571194
Probably the same 10-25 bracket, but stop getting your panties in a twist over the chance of not getting a gift you autist. If you don't believe in your santa, you deserve a grinch. Be a good boy and have faith.
>>
>>115570164
On that note, friendly reminder: the last day for standard shipping to be guaranteed to make it to your domestic US recipient is the 18th of December IIRC. You need your package in before the last pickup of the day though, so you should shoot for the 17th at the latest.
>>
Would putting yourself in the price range of $0/Cards sign you up for the able/wish to send out X-mas cards option, or is that a separate thing?
>>
>>115571431
My main concern is with both getting grinched, and sending something to a grinch
dont want to spend $100 and give it to some faggot from /jp/ who doesnt send shit in the $100 bracket, then not receive anything in return ontop of that
>>
>>115571586
The bottom line is that you can't control whether you get grinched or not, so just roll with the punches and hope for the best. I'm also assuming that previous grinches have been blacklisted anyway by the organizers anyway, so keep that in mind as well.
>>
The hardest part of this is finding a good gift for your Anon and making cards. The second hardest is making a good wishlist so you get something good. At least the first one is fun to do, but somehow making a wishlist for yourself seems like work.
>>
>>115571561
$0/Cards is if you want to send/receive only cards, no gifts. Specify how many cards you want to send where it asks a few lines below.

>just a few more weeks until we get our assignments
I hope my /ss/ has good taste or something I'm at least familiar with. Picking out the gifts is the fun part.
>>
>>115571807
This is why it's important to list an anime or character that is easy to work with, especially cards.
>>

Alright, thanks.

>I hope my /ss/ has good taste or something I'm at least familiar with.
You're providing information to help, right? I'm always worried that whoever sees my MAL will think I'm a faggot, but I hand it out anyway.
>>
Santa aint real this shit's pointless
>>
>>115571861
This! You can go for just cards if you'd like, as long as you do a gift or cards, the other is optional. Though, most people like to do a little of both.

It's okay anon! I'm sure they enjoyed it nonetheless ;_;

Santa is real /a/non!
>>115573391
Yep! At a 1:1 ratio so each card sent is a card sent to you.

I already signed up but after today I'm starting to get worried I'm going to end up buying something for a retarded casual.
>>
Damn! I can't participate this year because I have to finish my thesis, or at least just send a card.

And II was planning on doing some Damascene stuff to send this year... Well there's always valentine's

I love getting cards so I really want to sign up for more than one, but I'm so busy around the holidays I know I'll barely have time to make one as it is. This sucks.

>>115573449
I got a guy last year that listed one series he liked and then said he didn't care for much else. It was still fun working on the card for him and if nothing else he was happy with what I got him. It's not so bad.
>>
>>115573798
You don't always have to send cards /a/non! A nice small anime related trinket is great too, you could buy a few and send those out with a short note attached.
>>115573548
Sorry to hear that! A card would be great too, it's a nice way to celebrate.
>>
>>115573982
>A nice small anime related trinket is great too
That's actually not a bad idea. I'm a little puzzled as to what I would get or from where though. Guess I'll have to think about it.
>>
If I'm in card bracket, do I put N/A under wishlist?
>>
>>115574472
How are people supposed to know what to draw on your card if you don't put anything on your wishlist?
>>
>>115574472
If i see someone with N/A in their wishlist I'm going to draw the edgiest shit i can think of in the card
>>
>>115574754
The regular wishlist I mean, the card wishlist would be filled out as normal.
>>
>>115574801
>Edgy
Why not just find a creative way to call them a faggot? Draw them a pony or something.

>>115574754
You can still write in what shows you like somewhere or drop a link to your MAL or whatever. That's technically not a wishlist at all, right?
>>
>>115574825
I just deleted that question when I sent my form in.
>>
>>115574870
>pony

But swastikas and dicks are a lot easier to draw
>>
>>115574940
Do both, then. Ponies being mutilated by swastikas and dicks. All I'm saying is, it'll wound a lot more if it looks like you actually put time into it.
>>
>>115574801
>If i see someone with N/A in their wishlist I'm going to draw the edgiest shit i can think of in the card
Really? Because I would draw the lewdest shit ever. Like, the font cover would be a Hallmark semi upper class type card, and the inside would be a very detailed gang rape. The bitch is forced to hold hands with 10 different guys
>>
>>115574472
Just enter N/A or leave it blank, both are fine. But make sure you put something in the card wishlist anon!

Just a warning to all normalfags and retards that may be lurking, if you put casual shit as your favorite series I'm going to draw pictures of your waifu getting raped.

>>115572119
You are supposed to self insert into Santa anon, just like your Chinese cartoons.

>>115575554
I put some casual shit because I enjoy some casual shit and it's easier for my /ss/ to find.

>>115575554
Probably gonna do the same, but with NTR.

I've always been a fan of the Mexican halfbreed bit. Nothing says "fuck you" like a knocked up waifu.
>>
>>115575619
I'll find out. You can't hide shit taste.
>>
>>115575700

What would you define as casual shit?
>>
>>115575730
Anything that appears on the OP of a recommendation thread as things they've liked.
>>
>>115575765
You know those threads are ironic shitposting right?
that said, most animefags have shit taste and like whatever is popular
>>
>>115575554
But I put my most casual tastes on it so it wouldn't problem anon with something he hasn't watched.
>>
>>115575730
Whatever I say is shit is shit. I am the law

>>115575877
Just put what you like, man. I'd rather buy you something from your favorite series than one you put just because it'd be easier to find.
>>
>>115575877
A good S/a/nta will watch one or two shows to get a feel for them in that case. A decent S/a/nta will read up on any shows they haven't seen. Only a shitty Santa or normalfag would just guess. It's the internet, pirating and learning shit isn't hard. Besides, what's to say your Santa doesn't have a higher powerlevel than you? Are you looking down on me, asshole?

>>115575975
Sorry but have you seen the alexa for 4chan? Summer hit us hard this year thanks to /v/'s faggotry, I actually linked to some 'safe,' amazon stuff just so my possible newfag santa wouldn't get scared by the scary erotic figmas and grinch me.
>>
>>115575986
If you still have the box and the fig isn't damaged/glued I don't see a problem.
>>
>>115575975
>Are you looking down on me, asshole?
I'm just assuming you don't have shit taste as I do anon chan~

>>115575939
I put everything I like, but also mixed it some well known shows just to be sure, I'll be happy anyways.
>>
On a side note, we won't be able to respond to many emails tonight. Guaranteed we'll get to them within at most two days, okay guys? Santa is a little busy at the moment, but we'll be sure to read and respond to y'all!

>>115575986
Don't worry, I'm sure it should be okay. You'll find something nice for them I guarantee! A nice heartwarming card wouldn't hurt too if you can't find anything in time.
>>115576011
Let's say PLENTY! It's a very good amount.
>>
>>115576089
There's been a lot of normalfags and newshits, but Alexa only counts the people that have the toolbar installed, take it with a grain of salt.
>>
>>115576089
>have you seen the alexa for 4chan?
I seem to remember those website statistic gatherers saying we're underaged faggots for years now. Yes it's getting worse, but this is still /a/. If you're posting links anyway there's no need to worry since you already spoonfed a gift and presumably on an English language site at that. you solved your own problem without needing to go normalfag. Posting a MAL (or your Notepad/Excel sheet you elitist prick) including the normalfag shit you watched would also work in a similar manner. It's not that big a thing.

>>115576142
My taste is both the shittiest and the best. I am the alpha and the omega, the omnifan.
>>
>>115576086
>>115576135
That's good to hear, I didn't know if anons may find a second hand fig disgusting or something.
>>
>>115576427
>disgusting
I don't think you need to worry about that so long as it hasn't been glued. You DO need to worry about people getting offended because of a secondhand gift, but that'll depend on the person. The trick for you is going to be just gettting creative. Find some sales. You'll be fine.
>>
Also, I'm worried about getting grinched since I'll be in a fairly high price bracket, will there be thing for people like that afterwards like before?
>>
>>115576525
And do you have last year's info still available? I want to send my Santa a card.
>>
>>115576427
Why would I find it disgusting if there's not cum on it? As long as it's not complete garbage, I wouldn't mind.

Even shitty cards are heartwarming. I made my giftee a Yukkuri card for V/a/lentines and she still loved it. It's more about the heart than anything, even if amazing art does help.

>>115577150
>People are usually so mean there.
You probably earn it. Be sure to read about the ID documents required to get the box too, they're kind of annoying.

>>115577246
>>115577221
There is sometimes a small charge for the conversion. It shouldn't really be that significant, just another drop in the bucket if you're already buying a gift and shipping it.

So do you match people up into pairs, or just randomize it? For example, if people A, B, and C are all part of it, would A and B exchange gifts, or could A give B a gift, and B give C a gift?

Alright, I'll lurk some of the buyfag threads. I liked the christmas day threads from last year.

Also, I've never shipped internationally. Are the rates hella high? I don't mind shipping to out of the US, but I'd rather buy something more expensive if the shipping is going to be more than the 10-25$ range.

>>115577303
I would honestly rather buy a gift for BlondDude at this point

A lot of people post their recipients' initials and states so they know to expect cards. He posted his recipients' first names and states. One of the guys got pissed off because his name is uncommon.

What's the point of Christmas? All you get is things you don't want and all you give are things others wouldn't want. If you had wanted it, you'd have gotten it yourself. Nothing lasts long when it's just given to you. How many of you are just going to put the present in your closet somewhere and forget about it like your other presents? Gifts sound fun at first, but all they really give is nothing but despair in the end.

Because you're an autistic edgelord that doesn't understand the feeling of joy someone gets when they receive a gift from another person. It was something that someone took the time and energy to think of and decide to send you. It's not so meaningless as just an object! There are feeling embodied into that object and that's what the important thing is.
>>
>>115577820
That's the point of it, to get something you wouldn't buy yourself and each time you see it you know somewhere anon took time and effort to choose it and get it for you. That's also the reason of why so many anons signed up for sending a bunch of cards.

>>115578211
It's not just random. They aren't going to a dart board and throwing a dart to see what they get you. They are looking at a vague list you made and then deciding what you would like based off the hints you gave them and their ideas on what a fellow /a/non would find amusing. There is thought and human emotion infused with that gift. A store clerk doesn't give two shits about you and you're the one choosing, not the store clerk.

Even if it turns out to be crummy, it's still a gift. For example, this stupid Sumo. I hated this thing when my Mom got it for me all those years ago. It was just a random present I got for Christmas that I was repulsed by. I think I was in Middle School and I thought it was ugly as sin. Yet, I still have it. It's still here with me. It's moved around to 4 different homes and I've kept track it far better than most other things I've purchased for myself. Even when a friend was about to destroy it, I saved it.

It's just different. Someone thought of me when they bought this and that adds a whole new value on it even though it's a shitty thing.

Of course it's fucking psychological, autismo.

We're fucking humans. We have attachments to items. We have emotions. We value things over other things because of our memories. Humans do this all the time to inanimate objects. It's why people like a desk more if they made it then if they bought it.

We're fucking human. Obviously autistic people don't understand this concept.

Weirdly enough, that kind of post are very recurrent. Like "I want to send cards but I don't have money/can draw".
This is gonna sound rude, but I think it's better to agree with them into not singing up instead of trying to forcing them to, they are mostly the reason of why anons get wrinched / receive shitty cards, not because money but because they don't put effort on in and don't take it seriously.

MJ from NY

I don't know if you remember me, I sent you the popura figures and the daki cover. I never got to fully send you the rest of your gift due to financial issues and my house getting broken into. Spoiler, it was suppose to be the finisher, the daki pillow. I feel terrible, and honestly I don't want to enter in this year since I never got to fully take responsibility of my obligations as your respective secret santa. If you can get this message, let me know if you got one on your own. If not, let me at least return the favor and get you the pillow since I'm about a year off. That or some other respective item. Regardless, my spirit is with you.

LB from MN
I was able to get you that CD you wanted last year and I'm glad you were able to get what you wanted. I still owe you a gratitude gift, although like the post above, It's been a rough year. It's hard to find Saya no Uta merch without it being fake, and/or exceeding $150+ because of rarity. I'll send you something regardless for the spirit.

I never did send out my xmas cards, so I'll be doing them now. I'm mainly admitting this now to get it out of the way and spread my dues.

That and I got jewed out of Valentines day, but then I wasn't able to send my gift either. (So I'll be handling that out this year for Xmas.)

Losing your job is suffering.

so does the tiering work by the retail price of the item or the secondary market price of the item?

Oh look. Now I don't need to buy an Anon anything because my tax dollars are going to Japanese figures instead of helping people who really need it.

That's very different from getting something from someone else. Making something by hand takes time and energy, and that turns into memories that stay with that object. But buying and getting gifts are really no different from one another. All you're doing here is telling someone else to buy something for you. It doesn't matter if it's from a big list that you thought up because in the end, you effectively just told that person to buy that thing for you. It would have been nicer if you just went and bought it yourself instead of being a lazy cunt making other people buy things for you.

No, you're giving them a list of items you would like. Not too many people are writing on their lists:

Buy me a Puella Magi Madoka Magica SQ Figure Miki Sayaka from Amazon.

They are just giving ideas and the Anons decide what they want to give. It's not really that hard to understand. Someone is taking the time to get you something and/or make you something.

You're the type to throw away something a family member gave you because you couldn't use it despite them thinking you'd love it.

There's no real point in going out of the list, though. You told them you wanted that, right? So something outside that list would just be a disappointment in comparison because you expected to get what you wanted but you got something different instead. In all honesty, you'd probably be better off just buying it anyway since you'll know for a fact that you'll be getting what you want.

Jesus Christ anon. If I sign up for the $20 bracket, and go to the flea market and buy something for $20, that's normally worth $50, it still works for the bracket.

As long as they don't send me something biohazardous, I don't care. As long as it's something filled with love for a fellow /a/non, what does it matter? I could buy anything I want.

Been saving from my part-time job for my secret anons. Planing to spend ~$12 on each card and about $60 on the gift, that for 5 cards and a [10-25] gift.

I would hope you gift someone actually interested in gundam or plamo a PG. But yes, I wouldn't recommend it but even a beginner can do a PG if they have the patience, they don't need any paint or even lining to make it look good out of the box.

>>115579117
Doing a little of both is best if you can swing it. Something they asked for and something totally unexpected. My Santa last year got me several cheaper items I asked for and a Nendo I never would've thought to ask for that I ended up loving. It's that extra mile.

You might have a case if this was a Madoka thread or something I would call myself an expert in, but it's not. It's just an internet imageboard in which you're all allowed to make your own opinion and then post it with whatever qt anime girl you like.

You're getting something from a stranger. In the most likely case, they're just doing it because everyone else in this thread is doing it. There's no real love in it. They're just flowing with the crowd, buying something based off of a list of items to a faceless person. It's like as if Amazon gave you a present based off your recommended items. They're aren't going to care past Christmas that they gave something to a stranger.

Going with the flow is me watching this thread and then going to another thread because interacting with people from an Imageboard is weird.

More than likely, the people who are doing it are doing so because they want to feel like they have tomodachis. These people aren't strangers. These are people that you spend years of your life with. I've spent over 3 years of my life with these people. How can I say they are strangers and not my friends?

It's not really damage control. It's honesty. If you went to the archive, you can see where Kevin-kun started so I can't really lie and say that Kevin-kun has been here for 9 years or so. You'd call bullshit and people would autism out.

would depend on the person you're sending it to, some people enjoy the finicky bits, others would say 'neat' and then somehow lose it under their bed and possibly regift it if they found it by next christmas, which isn't the worst thing in the world but you should still consider the person you're buying it for as well, a lot of us aren't really into mecha.

You took it into an entirely different direction than anything I said. It's not a matter of intelligence, but a matter of opinion. Our opinions obviously clash, right?

it's probably a good idea to do it incase it gets stuck at the border for some reason and gets returned to sender

if someone has no reason to send you something in the mail they wont make use of your address.

It is better to put it on just in case it gets sent back, it goes to you and you can fix issue that prompted the return.

We won't be checking any more emails for the night, but even if you didn't get a response, we still got it as I said earlier! So don't sweat it!

>>115580659
Well we'll need your name and address that's for sure. Contact info isn't necessarily just check your email for when you get a reply. Sending internationally is like sending within your area, it just needs a few extra stickers on it, and a specification on the country it's being sent to. Be warned that it might take a little longer, so you'll possibly want to send it early. A return address might be a good idea in case it gets lost somehow, but I for one am not too sure how packages make their way around.

Sign-up deadline is November 1st. You can sign-up and cancel before that date if it all comes down to it. If you have to really push it past that, we'll still be able to re-route everything to make it work, though it's preferable that you know you're SURE that you can participate by that time.

I'll prep up an email. The tracking codes, I have no idea if they still work. But looking back at the archive and contacting previous giftees will be easy since we should still have information from last year. (I assume.)

I want to make it happen because I wasn't able to complete my vision last year. I feel guilty because I wasn't able to give everyone christmas cheer. Technically I did, but I wasn't able to fully deliver the full promise I had in mind.

The only thing I'm really hoping to get are cards with my waifu drawn on it. Gift is a bonus.

Would I be allowed to grinch in any of these scenarios?

My assignment lists only non-weeb /v/ shit, or /co/ shit, or normal clothing, or anything not /a/.
My assignments links to MAL, and their profile says they're underage.
My assignment has a Facebook profile, and they're clearly underage.
My assignment types like a cancerous fuck from lebbit, with emoticons, and excessive exclamation marks, or "ayy lmao"; basically anything that would be unacceptable on /a/.

Or would I just request that they get removed?
>>
>>115582277

You ask for a reassignment.

You're just looking for reasons to fuck someone over.
>>
>>115581978
I'm not too sure if I want to join, what with a lack of decent shops in Liverpool, and ordering something being out of the question because my landlady visits at random, early in the morning to work on the parto upstairs.

If I did join, I'd buy you something good, anon.
>>
>>115582302
No, it's important. I spent over £200 on last years assignment, and they were a lovely respectable person.
The thought never crossed my mind that little shitbag kids would be involved last year. I didn't really get involved in the threads.

But yes, asking for reassignment seems reasonable. Thanks.
>>
So out if all the anons who send a gift, do we know how many got one in return, like a percentage?
>>
>>115582422
>>115582429
I imagine the higher brackets would have less kiddies in them, so that's worth considering too.
>>
>>115582429
Doesn't just seem reasonable, seems like the only actual proper response.

Grinching is horrible regardless of who's being affected. There's being an /a/non, and there's being a cunt. A line should be drawn.
>>
>>115582478
Oh dammit I left my name on from draw threads
>>
>>115582531
Troll gifts are another option. Just saying.
If they enter this knowing full well that they shouldn't, then fuck them.
As long as you spend the correct amount of money of course.
>>
>>115582509
I think that's naive, I got grinched at 75-100$ too. It becomes a lot more worth to not send anything the more money you spend.

>>115582422
Thanks but no gift you can give me can heal the wounds of the past.
Are you not allowed to receive packages?
You can also make a nice local package of stuff that's native or unique to Liverpool, I'm sure you have beer or something? Throw in a local card and a self-made card and you have a fine present.
>>
>>115582632
>native to Liverpool
Maybe he could steal the wheels off your car.
>>
>>115582632
I've only been here a month. You can walk from one side of the city to the other in less than half an hour. As far as I can tell, Liverpool isn't known for having spectacular local produce, it's known for having an abundance of Irish folk. I don't drink, either, so I don't know what beer would be appropriate for anon.

I could probably receive packages, but my landlady would be extremely curious as to what was in them.
>>
>>115582792
Well, then just don't send lewd stuff? There is usually cute stuff of most things In the worst case you can frame a cute picture of whatever your person likes.

Now, I don't know much about Liverpool either, but just check out the wikipedia article. You can find out all kinds of interesting things like
>Liverpool has a large lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender/transsexual population, as well as the UK's only official 'gay quarter'. Despite cities such as Manchester and Brighton being historically more noted for their LGBT communities, Liverpool now has an LGBT comparable per capita to that of San Francisco.
Get a little creative and take an interest in the city. Put in some effort!

Not really sure about participating this year. I have a bad habit of overspending on my gift and last year I got grinched with cards (sent five, got none). Year before that I got a really subpar gift. At least my anons were happy with their gifts.

Also no idea what to wish for.

Should be "I hope to make my assignment happy" and "I hope the guy I'm assigned to isn't a grinch".

There isn't a right way to do things anon, so tracing isn't a bad option. actually, illustrators use tracing paper often to make different drafts for review.

don't loose hope! I bet there are things you can do that I am not really good at. I only spent most of my life drawing. but! I am sure that if you put your best effort, you can get better for sure. it all depends how much you want to put into it.

>>115584343
if I do get grinched then I wont be disappointed, because I know I did my job and I wasn't expecting anything amazing. it will be a learning experience.


>>115584534
its only a sketch so yes, it is finished. this was meant for the weekend waifu thread this week, but I am afraid I finished it too late so the anon I meant to show it to will have to wait til next weekend.

my plan is to attend every weekend to draw waifus and husbandos for everyone there in exchange for tips or steam codes.

uhm... here is a tip I hope it helps.

whenever I draw I tend to visualize what I am trying to draw in my head before actually attempting to do anything. (I actually did 3 drafts before getting to the version you saw in my previous post.)

the reason why it takes people time to learn how to draw properly is mainly because you have to build an archive of simplified shapes in your mind.

you have to learn how to translate complex visual information in a way that makes it easier for your brain to understand better. you have to break it down, and memorize it. so when you draw it you think about what you are doing instead of hoping for a miracle.

so, for instance, whenever I see my hand, I don't see a hand, I see a rectangle with longer rectangles connected by circles.

also, whenever I see breasts I try to either fondle my own (...I am a guy.) or I try to imagine the consistency and look of a balloon full of water. being observant is a very important skill if you want to learn how to draw better. draw from life. its no lie it helps and it makes a world of difference. and if you think thats boring then good luck.

whatever works for you really, like I said before there is no right or wrong way of doing things, if you aren't getting better at it is probably because you need to find a more suitable method of drawing things.

this not only applies to drawing, this applies to anything really. find something you are good at and be proud of it.
>>
>>115584789
you are welcome! I hope you liked it. I don't know much about the manga she comes from, but I hope my attempt did her justice. her ref sheet was very cute.
>>
Remember that you can filter tripfags and use "don't show stub" so that you won't know that they exist in the first place.
>>
>>115585043
Thanks for the tips.

I've had countless talks with other artists and a lot of them have said about the same thing about learning and what not. I love drawing, I'm just bad at it in general. Part of it is not that it's boring, I just cannot really do it long term because of how fucked my hand starts to act. Even my normal handwriting starts off nice and just eventually looks like shit.

The only thing I'm good at is vidya games.

Quick question

Will it teach my hands to not shit out after 15 minutes of use?

That was primarily my biggest issue.

Well that and not having the time to invest time to learn it because I had a full time job. NEET mode now though.

No problem, your drawing was very cute.

She's a LN character, the series only has a manga adaptation of LN volume 1. Only art I found were the LN illustrations.

The LN is slowly getting translated though so it's not too bad.

I went into their Book-Off and they had an artbook by an artist who was really well-known in what my Santa was asking for so I bought it for them. I had also sent them a figure from Mandarake but I wasn't really thinking about getting an artbook online because of the shipping prices (which admittedly aren't bad with Amazon Jp anymore since they changed to flat-rate)
