    Cool HD/HP Round Robin Cards - 3

    Hand-Drawn/Hand-Painted Round Robin Cards
    We are a fun group of ATC artists who like a bit of a challenge and creating ATCs with more than one person.
    Here is how a 3 ATC/Player Round Robin works:

    1. Player 1 starts 3 ATCs with their art. On the back, adds the necessary info (see below).
      Mails all 3 ATCs to Player 2.
    2. Player 2 adds their art to all 3 ATCs. On the back, adds the necessary info (see below).
      Mails all 3 ATCs to Player 3.
    3. Player 3 finishes all 3 ATCs with their art. On the back, adds the necessary (see below).
      Player 3 keeps 1 ATC and mails the remaining 2 ATCs back to Player 1.
    4. Player 1 keeps 1 ATC and mails the remaining ATC to Player 2.
    Here are just a a couple of completed sets that came out of this group!

    by Linda4atc, NatashaMay, MissM

    by Linda4atc, NatashaMay, BexMadeMe

    And this is what a set looks like at each stage:

    Linda4atc started, LucyMc was the 2nd player and NatashaMay finished off

    Jams are not a part of this thread. Jams are when player 1 starts only one card it is passed to two or three other people to work on. Then mailed back to the first person who makes good quality copies for each person who worked on their card.

    New Players are Welcome! If you'd like to join this group, PM me with the following information:
    USERNAME:
    REAL NAME AND ADDRESS:
    (*only shared privately with the other players)
    THEME DON'Ts:
    (e.g. if you don't like clowns or nudity etc, or you can just specify 'open theme')


    The Rules please read...
    • ATCs must be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", straight and neatly cut.
    • All ATCs must be HD/HP only, using any traditional HD/HP media. (if you aren't sure, ask the thread)
    • On the back of all 3 ATCs, the first player should write "AFA HD/HP RR" at the top. All players should add their their AFA username to the back of each card. (Many artists include their real name, location and a very brief description of what they added)
    • No glitter is allowed since it can get messy for other players. Glitter pens (i.e. glitter gel pen, glitter paint pen) are acceptable.
    • iTraders are given, when you receive the completed ATC. Each players gives 1 iTrader to each of the other 2 players that worked on the set.
    • Wrong size cards or incorrect media could get you neutral iTraders for sub-par artwork and/or your cards sent back to you incomplete.


    IMPORTANT BEFORE MAILING: CHECK the players mailing status and Theme Don'ts BEFORE mailing! Please do not mail an unwanted theme to a player, as they must pay to send the set to someone else. Please don't send in-progress sets to players on the Homer's List.

    Homers Only
    If you want to be removed from the active participant list I can put you on a Homers only list. This is so you can still receive the cards that you have already worked on.

    Guidelines please read...
    • Please do your best work! Add artwork to the sets that you'd be happy to receive.
    • This is a "blind art"-ish round-robin. This means the current player working on the set, will never know what the next player(s) will add to the set and each player has "artist's choice" as to what they wish to add to the set. (as long as theme limitations of the involved players is respected).
    • Please make sure you leave enough "space" in your composition for the other player(s) to add their artwork to the set.
    • Avoid white backgrounds. There are not many instances where the card would call for a white background.
    • The goal is to create three "identical" ATCs (give or take, it is HD/HP), and each player keeps one. You can vary things up a little, by picking different color combinations or different details.
    • Yes, you can mail an in-progress set to any of the active players, but just be aware if the player hasn't posted in this thread in a while, life may have gotten busy and they may not get to it immediately.
    • A HD/HP collage element may be used if you are really stuck (e.g. a previous player has created a water-soluble background and you can't add to it without damaging the existing artwork), BUT
      • it must be be HD/HP on another piece of paper, neatly cut out, and securely adhered to the ATC
      • no collages papers, no pre-printed materials and no stamped images
      • it may NOT be used to eliminate or disguise another player's artwork
      • this collage technique should be used sparingly, as glue and different paper types can affect mediums used on the card, and can make it difficult for the next player

      In past, players that have employed this technique, have checked in with the thread to vet their idea before adding it. (not mandatory, just a nice practice)
    • A color wash background is a valid start, however....
      • just a color wash background does not always give the next player inspiration to work with
      • it may be hard for others to add to it without damaging the background or already added artwork (e.g. a watersoluble medium will affect the medium you put on top)

      You can start with a color wash background, but try to fix it in such a way others can add to it (e.g. putting a gloss varnish on it will prevent another player from adding to it, but a workable fixative suited to the medium could be appropriate) Also consider adding another HD/HP element to the set, and not just send on a set of backgrounds.
    • Altering another player's artwork: Please do not re-draw, re-color or re-shade another players artwork! Please do not add your artwork in such a way that eliminates or disguises another player's artwork!
      • This is a traditional HD/HP group. The mixed-media concept of layering does not really apply. It is not expected that players would layer the artwork, thus altering the existing artwork (other than the color wash background and HD/HP collage element exceptions explained above)
      • If you feel that altering another player's artwork is absolutely necessary for legitimate reasons...DON'T. If you feel you can't add to the set of cards otherwise, please forward them on to another player. It's okay, sometimes players just get stumped. But DO take your idea for the alteration and create another starter set with it!
      • If you compose your set expecting the other player(s) to alter your artwork (e.g. you've drawn line art and you wish the other player(s) to color/shade it) clearly communicate this up front. Otherwise, you may get back a black and white card you weren't intending! Keep in mind that not every player finds this option appealing, and this style of collaboration has not been employed very much in this group.
      • If you are addicted to altered art, you may want to also check out the Continuous Round Robin Group or the Buddy Card Group, both of which have mixed-media in their repertoires and can satisfy your craving.



    Tips from players
    • We love eye candy! Please freely share your in-progress and completed sets in the thread for everyone to enjoy!
    • If you want to ensure you are mailing to an active player who has the time to work on the set and pass it on reasonably quickly, feel free to post the set to thread and ask for takers. (And we love eye candy!)
    • An excellent way to mail sets is in a single row cut from a plastic 9 pocket page. It not only keeps all three cards neat and together, it fits perfectly and stays flat in a business size envelope.
    • Considerations:
      • Does your added artwork give others options/inspiration to add to their artwork to the card? Have you limited the possibilities too much? (Limiting possibilities isn't always a bad thing.) This is a useful consideration for Player 1.
      • Does your addition have cohesiveness? Does all the artwork looks like it belongs there? Does it fit in with the story the card is telling? An artistic addition does not always have to be entirely cohesive, but when it doesn't, it still furthers the story of the card (albeit possibly in a different direction!). This may be more of a consideration for the Player 3, who in many cases "ties" the whole card together.
      • Does your choice of media work with the other media already on the card? Are they going to interact and make combine for some undesirable effect?
      • Does your color choices work with the card? Do you intend complimentary colour choices or contrasting choices? Keep in mind, not everyone has the same brands or media to work with, so sometimes choosing color can be a challenge and take a bit of experimentation (off card).

    • Yes, sometimes it's challenge to add to what other players have started and can be a little frustrating. But a little challenge and frustration can help you grow as an artist, so hang in there! We are happy to encourage you if you are really feeling stuck, so go ahead and post your dilemma to the thread. We're all here to have fun, and we hope you do too!

    Linda4atc has claimed one of the Hallowe'en sets (but she didn't say which one , so you can still get your dibs in!)
    One set will go to NatashaMay, so two are still up for grabs!

    Natasha, I some how missed this post in the last thread, my apologies. I was wondering why you didn't include a set of starters (you usually do). Sorry!
    http://atcsforall.com/forum/showpost...&postcount=397

    And just for the record, yes, anyone can send me a set of starters, you don't have to ask in advance. I may not always be the fastest out of the gate, but I will work on them!

    I'm here. Thank you MissM for taking over!

    I tend to check in the thread as of late because I'm not sure if people are still following the thread and I don't want to overwhelm them with sets.

    I'm always up for RR. I don't think you have any homers for me but if you have any sets left, I'll take one. Doesn't matter which.

    Awesome Natasha, one set is saved for you!

    I'm also looking for a 3rd player for the 2 sets Linda2atc started.

    I'm still here....haven't gotten any cards in forever...but then...haven't sent any either. Did some little beavers over a year ago that seem to have been lost...so there's that. And...am very actively involved in the Random Round Robin cards.
    I'll teach anybody anything I know, I just don't want to work.

    Hey lindagiese! Nice to see you are still around If you haven't actively been posting to the RR thread, then yes likely no one was mailing sets to you. I can send a starter set your way if you like.


    Natasha, the steampunk cow is yours!

    I'd love a starter from you Miss M....then perhaps I'll add some starters to send along after that...

    Miss M you just put a little laugh in my heart after s long day. I just love the the cards but the cow on the flying machine cards is awesome. Can't wait to see how they are finished up by the third artist(s).

    Paradox, you are now properly on the list

    Currently all the sets I had were mailed out earlier this week, but I imagine some of those will need thirds! Anybody else got something right now?

    I've got a few more starter ideas, I just haven't had the time to draw them out yet.

    Keep checking back!

    Thank you!

    And sure I don't mind finishing those sets off if someone wants to send them this way
