-Write your user name & swap name, location and date(month made) on the back of your cards.please put user name and swap on envelopes.(or i might mistake them for a gift XD)
-Please make all your cards different, no cards that are the same.

International players please include a self addressed envelope, and a well hid dollar for return postage or stamps equal to what it took to send to me. I will pay for the first 3 internationals.

I could always use an excuse to play around with drawing furries in a way I don't normally do... I rarely have done ATCs of furries, though I'm in the fandom. :3

I'll join in! It's okay to draw my own characters, yes?

Welp, I haven't participated in a swap in a while, and hey, I've been drawing furries for about 15 years now, so this is right up my alley XD

Count me in :)

Pixie, those look awesome!

I might have to re-draw one of mine now, cuz I'm also doing a dragon too, and it turned out it's in the same 3/4 view as yours >.< Only difference is that I made mine a medieval knight. Hmmm, I'll have to see what I else I can come up with.

Those are pretty sweet, Lisacotton. I'll have to do one of my fursonas as well...

I feel like I recognize your fursona.... Do you suit? I might have seen a picture of a suit of that character...
(On another note, I LOVED these cards. You're really good. I'd love to see my 'sona Rivkah in your style sometime if you're up for a one-on-one trade eventually. :D)

lisacotton
03-18-2012, 08:30 AM
Nope, I've never suited (I've been suit-curious though!) :) My fursona HollyAnn has been around for as long as I've been on the net, since 1997, and I've attended a few furry conventions too. I used to have a web comic at one point as well, but gave up on it because it was too demanding.

I've got art on DeviantArt and Furaffinity though, all under the handle "hollyann" :)

Technically, I really shouldn't have taken on a swap, as I have TONS of projects going on, but I've had a little bit of an art block the last couple weeks, so I was hoping that this swap could kick start me again ;)

lisacotton
03-18-2012, 10:09 AM
I always figured that if I make fursuit of my fursona, it'd be a partial. No sense in making a full suit, only to layer clothing on top...I'm already heat intolerant as I am XD Of course, it'll have to wait till I have more money, I've never made one before.

I also didn't realize you were so local to me! You're a Vermonter! A fellow New England furry artist. This is great. I lived in VT for a while, too. Montpelier-area.

My first con will be this year's FurFright in CT. I'm super-excited. I'm going with my boyfriend and my friend who got me into the fandom. It's all his fault. And he's gone to this con before, and he's good friends with me and my boyfriend, so we're all rooming together!! :3

rogalaca

lurking for now. when I finish my other swaps will see if I still have time for this. Great cards so far.

lisacotton
03-21-2012, 09:24 AM
Becka: Oh awesome! =D Yup, on the Lake Champlain Islands :) I've been living in VT for about 12 years now. And FurFright is a FUN con, you're going to love it :) I've got a table in the Dealer's Den again, so I'll be easy to find ;)

Oh and by the way, I'm also hosting an ATC panel at FurFright too, you should come! It's restricted to the first 10 people, but it's basically going to be a hands-on swap :)

Also: oh man, that sounds AWESOME! I love making ATCs of furries. I made ATC-sized conbadges occasionally. :3

Is there a way to reserve a spot in that panel? Or is it first-come, first-serve?

lisacotton
03-22-2012, 03:12 PM
I've got it so that it's first-come, first-serve for the panel - I won't know when the panel is going to be until about a month or so before the con (or whenever they announce their schedule), so the best I can say is, just keep an eye out for FurFright news, for whenever they announce the schedule for the panels :) I *can* say that I'm arranging it so that it's off dealer's hours, so hopefully after supper, in the evening sometime :) I'll be bringing my art supplies for people to use, but people are also welcome to bring their own if they like :)

Onaki

At some point we should do a Fursona PAT.

What I could get a die cutting machine to cut them out instead of arsing around with scissors! Well poop! Wish I'd known that before now!

pixiecorpse
03-31-2012, 02:02 PM
Oh and they are awesome by the way!!!!

pixiecorpse
03-31-2012, 07:40 PM
Ahh it saves time tho which is always a bonus! I'm totally going to ask santa (my mum) for one for xmas! Would keep my happy for hours cutting out shapes :D

lisacotton
03-31-2012, 09:50 PM
Pixie: Are the pre-cut ATC cards available in your area? That's usually what I use, then I don't have to worry about cutting them out and such.

If I had to use a different type of card from what I have, then I use a slide-cutter. I just use a pre-cut ATC to trace it out on the different type of card, and then cut it out with slide-cutter. You can find those at any office supplies store, and you'd probably pay a lot less for them there, then if you were to get them at a craft or art store ;)

pixiecorpse
04-01-2012, 04:47 AM
I have a slide cutter, and I'm the same it never goes where I want it to lol! My mum got me an awesome sketchpad with thick watercolour paper so I can do 8 atcs to a page but the papers not quite thick enough for me to feel comfortable to send out so they need backing :D we can get the machines just not sure about the atc cutter, I'll be doing plenty of research before I commit though as they're not cheap hehe

Super excited for going to my first furry con anyway. :3

I kinda wish there was a furcon on when where were there in a state we were visiting - but then again, there are some places where you shouldn't drag your husband!

icekat
04-03-2012, 11:12 AM
I just realized I wasn't subscribed because Phrixy signed me up. lol Great art so far! I'm planning to get some done this weekend, since it's a nice looooong one for me. I have Thurs off normally, and Fri and Mon are a stat here. I plan to get so much done!

I'd be game for a fursona PAT, totally.

Just wondering if my cards have arrived yet. Feels like they're taking forever :D

BekahStargazing
04-19-2012, 06:46 PM
I'm hoping I locate the cards I'm going to have to send before the due date! They've apparently gone missing, and I'm not sure where they went. T_T

I'm really worried, but if I can't find them, I might need to drop the swap. :'(

Oh! I would like to play!

Bruised
04-25-2012, 02:52 PM
Hey! Just wondering if it's alright for me to play? I asked already, but I worked on and finished 4 cards since then.

I did my fursona and the fursonas of 3 of my friends. :)

Exe is a Coyote, Apple is a Rabbit, Francesca is a Barn Owl, and Jiga is a cat!

pixiecorpse

I'm hoping that shewolfs RL commitments are stalling her activity and hoping its not for a bad reason!

MelanieS
04-25-2012, 05:55 PM
Is it ok that mine are all the same type of animal, cat people?

BekahStargazing
04-25-2012, 11:46 PM
I hope shewolf's all right too.

Anyway, I have a disappointing situation to report.
I can't find my freaking cards. If I can find them between now and, say, the 10th of May, I'll stay in, but I might have to drop this swap. OR make whole new cards. Which I don't have a lot of time for at the moment. Ugh.

I wish I didn't lose the others. :(

pixiecorpse
04-26-2012, 02:18 AM
Oh no bekah!!! That's terrible! I have to keep mine in a designated area or they go walkabout with my kids :D

Does anyone know what's going on with this swap. I tried to sign up back in April, and I went ahead and finished my cards, but I haven't heard anything. I sent a pm and an email, but no one is talking to me......do I smell bad or what?

pixiecorpse
05-08-2012, 09:11 AM
I got a pm from shewolf a couple of weeks ago about something else, I know she's been very busy with RL stuff but I don't know more than that, and you smell fine to me poonwugget :D

lemurkat
05-08-2012, 01:24 PM
Shewolf unfortunately is not always so good with communication, but she has been a reliable host to date. If you send her a PM requesting her address, she'll probably respond fairly quickly.

poonwugget
05-09-2012, 01:43 PM
Ok guy, thanks. I've showered just in case and I'll try again.

I have to withdraw too. I didn't get to finish these in time, though I did find them. When I do finish the cards, they WILL be up in my gallery for trade!!

poonwugget
05-14-2012, 02:20 PM
Ok, I never was officially added to this swap, but it's getting to be too late to mail it out and I've emailed and pm ed a few times now and never heard back. So I guess I am unofficially dropping out. If anyone wants to private trade two furry cards with me, please pm me. I'll post the cards in my gallery when I get to my computer. I'm pretty sad about this because I was really looking forward to this swap...

poonwugget
05-14-2012, 08:04 PM
Well my cards are up in the gallery if anyone made any extras and wants to trade. Just remember the color looks washed out on here because of my scanner. They look better in person. I promise!

I think it's partly due to the inactive nature of the host, unfortunately. Maybe I'll host an anthro swap when I get back from the USA.
