    Famous Characters (WXYZ) Swap - Choose Your Media - Due June 22

    Swap Due Date: 22 June
    Mail-By Date/Withdraw Date: 8 June
    Number of Cards: 4 for 4 (one each of W, X, Y, and Z cards)
    Number of Participants: 40
    Media: Hand-Drawn/Painted OR Open Media


    Famous Characters - WXYZ

    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 four cards to send in. This is the last swap in the series. Your first card will show a famous character that starts with the letter W, the second one will show a character that starts with the letter X, and so on up to the letter ‘Z'. You will then receive returns for each letter.

    For example, you might make:

    W for Wally (Where’s Wally?)
    X for Professor X (X-Men)
    etc.

    and then receive:

    W for Richard Webber (Grey’s Anatomy)
    X for Xena (Xena: Warrior Princess)
    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, my plan is to open up a thread in the ATC Trades forum to help people catch up if they are missing letters.


    How To Design Your Cards
    - Must send 4 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.


    Hand-Drawn/Painted Group (must submit HD/HP cards, will only receive HD/HP returns)
