April 1:1 Match Game


Sign up by April 10 - MAIL BY April 30



This will be a 1 on 1 Artist Trading Card Exchange with an assigned partner!

You can do more than 1/1, a different size, an exchange of atcs, 3x7s, postcards, art dolls...whatever you like, just work it out between you!

If you haven't mailed the previous month's card yet, please send before you sign up!

Sometimes it's hard to ask people for personal trades - especially if you're new to the site and not sure what to do. Here's a great way to get trading with new people. You'll be assigned a partner, and you make 1 ATC for your partner according to their profile suggestions. You can make a bigger trade if you want. This swap is open to BOTH divisions so your partner may be from MMA or P&P.

Please note before signing up - No partner requests! Players are matched using random.org's list generator, so you may get the same person 247 times!


PLEASE COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PARTNER. SPECIFY WHAT YOU WANT, ASK WHAT THEY WANT!


Instructions

Sign up by April 10
Partners posted on or around April 11
PM your partner for their address.
You must mail to your partner on (or before) March 31. This gives you about three weeks to create 1 ATC.
Go to your partners profile page where you will find a list of themes (comics, cats, hearts, zetti, etc.) Pick 1 of those themes and make 1 ATC. Or figure it out between yourselves - do a 2/2 or a 3/3 trade if you want.
Please create your card in the medium you were accepted at iATCs for.
P&P, please hand draw or paint. MMA, please use mixed media, collage or fabric/metal - whatever you normally do. If you're a member of both divisions, then any medium is acceptable.
Mail your completed card to your partner by March 31.
Post to the thread that you have mailed your card.

Rules

You must post to the thread when you mail a card and when you receive a card so we can be sure everyone is accounted for.
List themes you collect on your profile page or in the thread below when you sign up
You may post pictures of completed ATCs to this thread if you want but is not required.
This is a 1 on 1 trade so only leave iTraders for your partner, not for me (unless I am your partner!)
If you don't mail out on time then you will not be allowed to sign up again until you meet your obligations.

Here's a Gothic Arch I made for ParadoxSketchbook. Regi, can you post about the horses in your collection? I was trying to create an interpretation of one of her horses with this painting

I'm also working on a street scene from a photo I took in Moscow a few years ago. I've been looking for an opportunity to paint it! I sometimes justify my perhaps-excessive traveling by telling myself I'm doing it for the sake of art. So I better be creating some art based on my travels! Thanks for enabling me, Michelle. Haha.

That would be for my lovely Anthem (http://fav.me/d5zjt9n)! That link goes to the official design sheet for the group.
Here is the reference image I did of him on an ATC: Anthem Registry Reference (http://fav.me/db5lwv4)
He is an Moritzburger Sport Horse... I'm getting ready to do more ATCs of him in shows and such for art contests coming up next month. :D

Cool. Yes, the one I painted does look more like the Moritzbuger than the Kasuvaa :-)

Here's my April Match card I made for Michelle81--a street scene.

My photo reference was a picture I took in Moscow in August 2014 at a street market. I was amazed how colorful Moscow was and how many trees were everywhere including inside the city.

I uploaded the postcard I made for KP: Year of the Sheep (http://www.illustratedatcs.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=56818)
For some reason I kept getting a file size error when trying to use the same image here to upload...the gallery took it but not the forum. Oh well.
