It's the holiday season, which means it's the season of giving and receiving!  And what better way to get to spread holiday cheer than with a new art sketch exchange meme?

Participating is simple:  

1.  Copy and paste the following text into a comment on this journal, answer the questions, and post!

Anything else you'd like to share:


2.  Read through comments left from other deviants.  You might find someone with the same hobbies as you, someone who enjoys your favorite TV show, or someone who has similar artistic goals.  Or, maybe you want something different!  Variety is the spice of life.

3.  Leave a comment reply to anything that catches your eye and work out the type of art trade/exchange you're interested in.

Bonus:  When your art sketch exchange is complete, link to the completed pieces as a comment in this journal.  You never know -- your art exchange might earn you a free deviantART Notebook!

dA Notebook Set by Leuchtturm by deviantARTGear  

Why is sketching important?


"Notebooks and their sketches are an artist's portal to creativity.  They're a place to explore ideas, write observations, draw impossible connections, and build entire worlds upon a blank page.  You can be yourself within the safety of a sketch, with permission to make any mark, describe any feeling, and truly express yourself in any way your instrument takes you.

In my notebook, I don't have to be perfect; in fact, it's more successful if I'm not.  This tool exists as a catalyst to transcribe creative processes so that good ideas aren't lost to the ether.  And it's not always about quality.  The more ideas jotted down as inspiration strikes, the more fuel you'll have in the future when searching for ideas or while in a creative rut.

Forest 2 by Ayame-Kenoshi   Forest 4 by Ayame-Kenoshi

Notebooks are my artistic push-ups and pull-ups.  Like exercising, it can take months to see a result, but once you have the foundation and the discipline, your creative strength grows every day.  For those of you who keep a notebook, none of this is news to you. But for those who do not, I implore you to start up practice and enjoy the adventure that ensues.  You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish and proud at how quickly your skills grow."

Well, I'm a bit of a fan of children's classics, so how about a sketch of your own version of Polychrome from Frank Baum's Oz series?

If not, I'd be happy with a dragon, any dragon.

Meanwhile, you wanted your OC, right?

I usually aim for a week for myself, 2 if necessary, but there's really no deadline.  I still haven't gotten all my return sketches from last year, but I don't mind.  

I do have some questions about your OC, though.  Just for context, what kind of creature is she?  She resembles a harpy, but her race is listed as something else.  Also, what kind of world does she live in?
