    Chibis, Chibis Everywhere! - Hand Drawn / Hand Painted - Due October 14

    Due Date: October 14, 2013
    Signup/Withdraw Date: October 9, 2014
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3 OR 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: Hand Drawn / Hand Painted

    Chibis, Chibis Everywhere!
    Chibis are cute, small, adorable little characters. They're quite popular in Japan. If you're not sure please see this Wikipedia page and this one. (Both pages are short but will give anyone new to chibis a great overview.)

    For this swap you can make chibis of famous people or characters, made-up chibis straight from your imagination, human, animals, fantasy, scary, fairy tale, etc. Anything goes as long as the main thing on the ATC is a chibi!

    Please do not do just a close up of their face. We must be able to see at least from their knees up. No plain white backgrounds; create a scene for your chibis or fill the background in. Let's see how ridiculously cute & cool we can make these!


    How can anyone resist faces like those?
    Chibi examples by:
    Top Row- Kaos Ninja9, SellyBellyChan, Squ1rrel
    Bottom Row- wunderland, DmyTLadybug, nowzem

    Mailing & Postage:
    ~Please put your username and swap name on the back of all envelopes.
    ~USA Participants: Please include a SASE with sufficient postage to mail back your returns.
    ~International Participants: Please include a large address label with your address clearly & neatly written on it and $1 U.S. (or the equivalent in unused U.S. postage stamps). If you really can't find this and you want to play, please PM me.
    ~Be sure to give your cards enough time to travel and make it to me on time.
    ~Important! If you forget your return postage I will swap out your cards but you will have to send me your return postage either in a separate envelope or through PayPal. I am on limited funds and can't afford to cover multiple people in each swap. If I could I would but I can't. Sorry!
    ~No cards / no communication may get you a neutral iTrader.
    ~Don't forget to leave 'You Rock' points for the people who you receive cards from. Part of the fun is finding out who got your cards. It's encouraging to your fellow artists too!
    ~A host card would be loved and cherished but of course is not required to participate and have fun.
    ~I swap effort for effort as best as I can.
    ~If you have any questions feel free to ask!

    I know what you mean But there will be more spots (it's unlimited players). I just didn't feel like typing all the numbers right away, not knowing how many people there will be, so I usually just add the numbers in as we get more people. Hope to see you back!

    To all of those who aren't familiar with chibi style, do a Google search and put in something like 'chibi animals', you'll get a ton of images. You can search chibi anything and it will come up. They are so much fun to draw. I might end up doing 6:6, who knows?

    First card. I snuck in a few blacklight reactive tidbits in there. Sorry about the crappy quality... it's my cellphone's camera. I'll be replacing it with a scanned copy after I'm done with the others.

    Pen and Sharpie.
    Great Hulk card and love that you made it glow! Very cool!!
