    Famous Characters (MNO PQR) Swap - Choose Your Media - Due November 13

    Swap Due Date: 13 November
    Mail-By Date/Withdraw Date: 23 October
    Number of Cards: 6 for 6 (one each of M, N, O, P, Q, and R cards)
    Number of Participants: 40
    Media: Hand-Drawn/Painted OR Open Media


    Famous Characters - MNO PQR

    Over the past few years, I’ve seen some cool alphabet swaps on the site, but I’ve never attempted one myself. For this swap, we will be creating ATCs of famous characters following the ABCs. The ultimate goal is to have a complete alphabet of famous characters. You will make six cards to send in. This is the fourth swap in the series. Your first card will show a famous character that starts with the letter M, the second one will show a character that starts with the letter N, and so on up to the letter ‘R'. You will then receive returns for each letter.

    For example, you might make:

    M for Moaning Myrtle (Harry Potter)
    N for Nina Proudman (Offspring)
    etc.

    and then receive:

    M for Monica Gellar (Friends)
    N for Jimmy Neutron
    etc.

    The possibilities are limitless. In addition, when you sign up, you choose your media group. You will receive returns in your chosen media. I will also attempt to swap effort for effort and if you’ve posted particular character/franchise interests in the thread, I’ll try to send back cards that match your interests. Eg. If you’ve mentioned liking Harry Potter, I’ll try and send you a character from the series.

    After this swap has finished and been mailed, I will open up the swap for STUV.


    How To Design Your Cards
    - Must send 6 ATCs (one for each letter).
    - Must be reasonably well-known characters
    - Must be FICTIONAL characters (not real people)
    - Must feature the letter that they represent on the card. It’s up to you how you do this, but it would be nice to be able to display all the cards and have it be obvious that they represent the alphabet, so make the letter prominent.

    - Can be any style (eg. zetti, realistic, cartoon, your interpretation, based on screen adaptation, whatever you would like)
    - Can be the letter of their first/last names or their alias (eg. superhero name)
    - Can be from literature, film, television, games, etc.


    Swap Rules
    - All cards should be 2.5” x 3.5”.
    - All cards should be sent in individual plastic sleeves for protection.
    - Cards must be sent three weeks before the due date. I am in Australia, so this is how long it will take for international (and sometimes Australian) mail to arrive. Late cards will be returned at your expense.
    - If you need to withdraw, that is completely fine, just let me know.
    - No cards and no communication may result in neutral iTrader.
    - Keep cards as flat as possible to protect them.


    Postage (Australian)
    Please include a large address label and stamps to the value your cards took to mail to me. I will provide envelopes.


    Postage (International)
    Please include a large address label and $2 US cash. Alternatively, I can accept PayPal or US stamps. I will provide envelopes.


    Other Info
    Please message me for my address when you are ready to mail and post to the thread when you send your cards. If you already have my address, it has not changed.

    When you receive your returns, please leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists.

    Please ask if you have any questions. It’s better to clarify now than have your cards sent back because they don’t meet the requirements.

    Would love to grab a spot if I may, and any media for returns is fine with me.

    Beautiful cards, Beverley!

    Tribble79, I am planning to run a catch-up swap at the end. I think it would run a little bit like a PAT where you nominate which letters you need and someone makes them for you. So if you wanted to join in now, you'd have less to catch-up on =).
