You forgot to add "To Snuffan under merry christmas", scrooge.
I like the santa! X3
Why I drew santa
@xkrazydog: I drew santa because I had no idea what to draw for snuffan. she has no comics and her deviant art page is just random art with random themes. although there is nothing wrong with that it makes it very hard to draw something personal. I was going to add To Snuffan underneath but it didn't look right so I left it out. I did try to make it more personal because I noticed that her profile picture is currently a kitten so I thought if she likes kittens she might just like the cute stuff in general. is this creative? no, but at least I gave it my best effort and that's what matters.
@AlkseeyaKC: Me to, he and everyone who knows him is made of win
She has L on her Sumo Paint account or just drawn one of the random characters and be like, Not sure if this is an OC or what, But here it is! :D
But ether way I think at least this is a really cute and stylized Santa. If I did not have much clues on my profile I would be happy with it.
We should see how Snuffan feels before people start pointing fingers. =3
@person who drew this: No, thats just laziness. The "random people" on her site are clearly her OC's unless stated otherwise and even if she didnt make a comic for them they must have some meaning since they BELONG to her. Likewise, her face is on dA, she has had a sketchbook thread etc. You didnt even take a shot and to go from "Something cute on her User image ---> cute santa" That doesnt float at all. You didnt even attempt the cute thing on her avatar.
Its unacceptable and the rules clearly state to make it PERSONAL to the user at all. and so I'm calling you out and you should be labeled as a scrooge.
Calm down, Krazy...
Krazy, this is a gift for Snuffan. If she is unsatisfied with the picture, it's her decision to say something about it. If you're not on the staff this year, than it's not your place to decide what's a good enough present for someone. I think the very fact that a picture was even drawn puts this person miles ahead of being just another scrooge. For the moment, let's just leave things alone until Snuffan comments.
Well it sucks to add pressure on Snuffan and snuffan dont worry you dont have to say anything at all.
But my opinion is said, its in the rules and this breaks it, and even if its drawn nicely, its impersonal and can very well be given to ANYBODY as stock and that's pretty offending (hell it doesnt even say snuffan on it). Feels like a scrooge to me.
Hi everybody. Figured I'd pop in on this drama and say I'm one of the users with not a ton of info available on me. I had previously wrote on my profile during the duration of this event to my SS that they could draw whatever they'd like to since I haven't uploaded my comics or anything yet. I hope that when their artwork gets posted to me, they won't be labeled a Scrooge just cuz it isn't especially personalized. I'll be happy just receiving some artwork made for me, whatever that may be. If I don't get any at all, that's when I'll be all like this----> >=( Don't look a gift-horse in the mouth, as the saying goes.
@yourshadow: ... Omfg. are you serious? Did you not look at her dA on her profile? And since when did i say you had to be an art genius to make a worthwile and well thought out gift? Not at all. And thought comes before art skill in this SS event or else we'd be more selective of it. I'm going by RULES and CONTENT, not Art STANDARD. If you think i'm so shallow, I wouldnt be participating to begin with. ( why the hell are you personally attacking me and putting words in my mouth? is this about me? I stated it breaches the RULES)
(and badbanana you atleast had the courtesy to state so on your profile, even though your dA may not have full body reference it's still absolutely sufficient. People can easily make something well thought out on your username/avatar alone.)
@xkrazydog: lolz if someone drew my avatar it'd make my day hahahaha. We'll see what happens with my present. I hope I got one! ^___^ Bwaahahahaha.
You're joking, right, Krazy?
You're asking why you're being attacked when you went out of your way to attack the person who drew this picture. Snuffan's the final judge on this. If she's displeased with it, she'll say so. But you have no right to say anything if the art wasn't made for you.
Ahh apparently it was a personal attack (or a bad thought out comment) since the yourshadow deleted their comment =/.
Lets look at it this way: If you say its okay then just because its drawn nicely, they can get away with breaking the rules? Isnt that... the complete opposite of what we've been doing with SS's for the past half decade?
Guys, lets not argue on the SS pages. Everything will be taken care of. Relax and enjoy the other gifts.
If you have any concerns or thoughts on a gift, just send one of the Head Elves or Smack Santa a PM. You can send me a PM right now if you'd like, though I'm at work and might not be able to answer for a little bit once I'm on my way home.
@xkrazydog: Now, don't think I don't see your point. Yes. I saw her dA account, but please hear what i have to say.
I remember you from the last Sercret santa, so i know you fully understand the rules. That a side, You didn't have to comment like that to prove it. You could of just emailed smack santa, which would of been the best thing to do. That way this debate, wouldn't have started. I know I don't have any say too who's right or who's wrong. So, please go and talk to him about it, so this can clear up. so comments like this can end. I'm sure, snuffan wouldn't like to read all of this mean talk on her gift. No matter what it looks like. =/
I am sorry for my last comment. I had reread what i wrote, and I didnt like how mean i was. So, i removed it. When I made the comment, didn't think it fully through. So again, I'm sorry. Also, merry christmas.
wow... i cant believe what i'm hearing...
"You didnt have to comment like that" "its not your gift so you dont have a right to say"
so another person got scrooged and... wow. this community never ceases to amaze me sometimes.
agreeing with xkrazydog, but let's keep this in PM, as Yakkity already stated
"Guys, lets not argue on the SS pages. Everything will be taken care of. Relax and enjoy the other gifts.
If you have any concerns or thoughts on a gift, just send one of the Head Elves or Smack Santa a PM"
Come on guys, No more arguing and loosing the Christmas Spirit! I still think this is a really cute Santa so who drew this, don't feel down about what you did. I'm sure you did what you thought was right. Maybe its not what others would have thought as of right. But some times that just happens at Christmas.
@AlkseeyaKC: *thumbs up* "Your shadow" has liked your comment.
=3 Ok, I'll be good.
I STILL LIKED THIS, PERSON WHO MADE THIS.
This is now starting to feel like a personal attack. I tried my best with the infomation I had at the time. I did look on her DA but I thought her OC's were actually just normal pieces of art. When I send this to Santa he said it was fine because he could see that I put effort into it. so please in the near future only comment if you have something nice to say and if you don't then go talk to one of the head elves
It's nice to see the true colours of smack jeeves one more time before I quit this site. you've made me realise how much I Love and hate it here. there are a few users out there who I still like and will stay in contact with but apart from that this site will now only be used for reading comics. I'm never going to post any comics on here again
Oh and a quick thanks for being the kindest person on here to AlkseeyaKC :D
...Merry Christmas, everyone.
