Hello members !! Winter is coming, and so is Christmas, which means .... Secret Santa time !!!! Yaaaay we're holding our 3rd Disney Secret Santa event, and we're sure you're all as excited as we are about it ! Next year we got more than 50 persons participating, let's get even more entries this year, don't hesitate to spread the world :D 

:iconchristmasla: Let's get our Disney Secret Santa started :iconsantalaplz:

:star:  What is a Secret Santa ?

The tradition of Secret Santa is a gift exchange between two persons in which the person receiving the gift doesn't know who the giver is going to be. Seems like a lot of fun, doesn't it ? :D ALSO since deviantart is an artistic web community, we won't send material gifts to anyone of course, the gift will be a piece of art made by yourself, or a fanfiction for example, that you will do for your recipient and that you will post here on your account :)

:star: How will it work ?  

At the bottom of the journal you will find a questionnaire. Please copy the questions and send your answers IN A NOTE titled "Secret Santa Questionnaire"  to CherishTree  DO NOT SEND YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE TO THE GROUP ! As the admis may participate and they'll have access to the group notes.  You'll have until the 1st of December to send your questionnaire and so to apply the Secret Santa. Between the 1st and the 15th of December I will add a journal to my STASH with everyone's answers assigned a number (with the name removed, of course).  I will note each participant the link to the journal and participants will then reply with their first 5 choices. Assignments will be made (by note) on a first-come, first-serve basis.  When a number is assigned, it will be removed from the journal.  This will be explained in detail in the assignment note.

Remember to send your note to CherishTree! Do not leave your questionnaire in a comment either! For it wouldn't be secret anymore ;p

:star: Who may participate ?

Participation is open to any member/watcher of FutureDisneyArtists and Art-Tutoring-Program
We have absolutely no requirements on skill level or main artistic medium.  Everyone is welcome to participate. :iconreindeerla:

:star: Rules, Due date, Infos, etc ...

:bulletred: Since we're starting the contest latest than previous years, we're extending the due date to send your final gift to 15th of January. Then from the 15th to the 30th of January we will contact swing santas to complete missing gifts, or we will allow some delays  depending on the circumstances. When your gift is finished, post the deviation to your gallery and send both your recipient and me (CherishTree) a note with the thumb or a link to it. Your gift will appear in the featured folder of:devFutureDisneyArtist: for one month.
:bulletwhite: Your gift must adhere to normal group rules: there must be a canon Disney character, place, or thing present. All work must be your own. No screenshots, Disney promotional photographs, or any official Disney art may be used.
:bulletgreen: Medias allowed or traditional art, digital art, hand crafts, sculpture, and litterature MADE ESPACIALLY FOR THE EVENT, you can't use an old deviation of yours, it's not fair, the gift has to be personal and corresponding to your recipient's wishlist
:bulletwhite: Admins reserve the right to reject a gift. We will not ever reject a gift based on skill level, but if it's clear the deviation only took 15 minutes or none effort was put in it, or you took one of your old deviation, we'll refuse it and reassign a Swing Santa to your recipient. 
:bulletred: As a recipient, if you feel that you have been given an inappropriate gift please note me personally. Remember skill level will not be taken in consideration - if it is clear your Santa put thought and effort into their gift it will be accepted by the group. If the gift is ultimately rejected by the group you will be assigned to one of our swings.

:star: What happens if someone doesn't complete their gift ?

:bulletred: If you pull out of Secret Santas before you have received your gift, no harm done. Your Santa will have the choice of still completing your gift or being reassigned to a swing position.
:bulletwhite: If you pull out of Secret Santas after having received your gift but before the 15th of January (which allows time for the Santa to be reassigned to a swing), you will go onto the "Coal List" on the journal, so everyone will know you mooched art off of someone without giving any in return.
:bulletgreen: If by the 20th of January you have not completed your gift but have received yours, you will forfeit your group membership and any art you have in our gallery will be removed. You will then be added to the group's blocked list. Because it's just not fair to receive a gift and not giving one in return. I INSIST ON THIS POINT.
:bulletwhite: For recipients, if your Santa has pulled out of the project or if you haven't received your gift by the 20th of January, you'll be reassigned to a Swing Santa, who will make you a gift that you will receive by the 31st of January
:bulletred: So in short, if you think that for any reason you may not be able to get a piece done by the 15th of December, do not sign up for this Project.

:star: The Questionnaire :

1. Favorite Disney/Pixar Movies: (list as many as you like)

2. Favorite Disney/Pixar Characters: (list as many as you like)

3. Favorite Disney/Pixar Miscellanea (Places, Games, Shows, Music, etc.): (list as many as you like)

4. My Idea of a Perfect Gift: (it may gives some ideas to your snata to make you a gift you'll sure like)

5. Art Mediums I prefer to receive: (digital/traditional/litterature/sculpture/handcraft)

6. Other things I'd like to share with my Santa: (if you want your santa to know you better or if there's something not related to disney that you like, for example you like marvel or harry potter and you'd like a crossover with a disney character)

7. I can/cannot be a Swing Santa if someone should not complete their gift. (It means if someone leaves the project, you're disposed to make a present to the recipient they had been assigned to)

And nooow ...................................... Let's start !!!

Welcome to FDA

Hello and welcome to future Disney artists, my name is Invidia-S the co-founder of this group and along with CherishTree one of the people here to help you. while we have a gallery for Disney style artworks we also have an
art tutoring programing in our affiliate group Art-Tutoring-Program (it got too cluttered here) organised by the group between our members. The current 2014 list of students and tutors can be found here:
Tutors-Students List 2014Here's the list of our tutors and students for 2014. We thought the previous lists started to look messy, so we decided to make this list, which will be clearer and more organized :)
Update: We have 6 new students : DarthJ1Kresily,Deaderidan,  CHCHcartoons,  SpiritWolf1471 and Noiledluv
ADreamandaWishFanart  and Invidias have recently had vacancies open.
Tutors please inform us of skills you are willing to teach in this (:bulletpurple: Traditional    :bulletred: Digital   :bulletblue: Animation    :bulletgreen: 3D modelling) format
Students that still don't have tutors:DiscreetMemories CherishTree KatSestoArt SkippingPebbles (maybe some tutors might want to ask them?)
We will also be removing old students that don't have a tutor and did not respond to the note that the group sent. If you don't have a tutor and want one please note the group.
Once registered with the group

------>:bulletred:PLEASE SUBMIT TO THE RIGHT FOLDER!!:bulletred:<------
eg. 'Disney Princesses' is for two or more official Disney Princesses from different movies and listed here…. Will only allow groups with unofficial princesses if there are more official princesses.
Look before you submit by Invidias

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred: PLEASE GO READ THE RULES!! :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

I now turn you over to our founder glimpen for the rest of the introductory post:


Hope you know how to read!
FAQs///How to join?/// Characters we accept /// Rules

Hello/Howdy/Hola/Bonjour/Willkommen! :wave:

Hello again deviants!!
This club is not a normal club!!

We are not just watchers, members, admins and visitor....we are supporters, critiques and especially friends. The one thing that makes us different is that we encourage improvement and congratulate it!!!

This club is not a gallery that you submit your newest artwork in, it is a learning environment to grow in.

We have a partnership program that is not an obligation for all the members!
Though it is the main focus of the group.
You have four options is this club:

:bulletred: Be someone's tutor.
:bulletred: Be someone's student.
:bulletred: Have a tutor and a student
:bulletred: Be a gallery contributor member (not in a partnership)
(Or you know you could help us here as an admin.)


As a group we have a job, an oath if you may. When we clicked "join" we accepted the responsibility of possibly being a tutor to other deviants that request useful critique, support or even help. Every deviant accepted is a deviant we watch grow and develop as a Disney artist. To every deviant, that wishes help, a tutor is selected...and that wishes to help a student!

You maybe thinking..."What Deviant Disney school?"
In a way we are, depends on what a school means to you. If a school means fun and friends... yes!! :dance: Or if it means study and improvement... YES! :work: Or if you simply want to help someone to get better in the drawings, sketches, colorings ( Colouring , sorry Glimpen, I’m Australian and just needed to say that) or even ideas... yes!!!:writersblock:

We simply seek the improvement of ALL artists that seek improvement. We need all the help we can get!!!! :D:D:D
If you want to improve your art with useful critique or want to help someone by giving critique!!!
You came to the right place!!!!!

:woohoo:This is the DD Academy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:woohoo: The Disney Deviants Club!>

Why are we named Future Disney Deviants????
Because when you join you are one step closer to become a Disney Artists* (In the sense that you improve as an artist though I also find Disney related job opportunities.) !!!!

Partnership Interested Members!
The program has started!

New gallery folders* will be created for each group (tutor/student)!
Once you receive that, every deviation you upload has to contain a link to the club and to your tutor! It is also very important that to put in your deviation your tutor’s icon or send a link to them, they need to be able to see the artwork to offer critique! Also tell us you have a tutor so we can make the folder for you.

Please note this…
You will improve here. There will be a time that your tutor won’t be able to help you anymore. Your need another type of help. Please send a note to the club that contains this points:
:bulletblue:are you a student or a tutor?
:bulletblue:who was your tutor/student?
:bulletblue:do you improve what you were looking for?
:bulletblue: what kind of help do you seek now?
:bulletblue: is there a specific area that you would like to improve?
After you send the note, we will remove the previous student/tutor folder and you can look for a new one.
do not forget to tell your tutor/student! A “thank you” note never hurts!

Your tutor is not helping you??
Don’t worry! Sometimes, someone is not the correct tutor. Maybe you didn't fully relate or you both share a very different point of view, please send the club a note were you say who is your tutor, why he did not helped you and what kind of help you need. We will communicate that to your tutor and you can search for a new one.
Do not be offensive to your tutor!
If you broke the rules and you wish another tutor… we will deny it! please read the Rules

Remember that this group and Art-Tutoring-Program have the same admins we are in essence the same group so what is write here goes for there.

Hi, I was about to submit a picture of Merida, but I can't seem to find a 'Brave' folder. Where can I submit it?
Invidias Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2015  Professional General Artist
Brave is Pixar. All Pixar movies are in the same folder.
aniek90 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2015
Thank you!
Invidias Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2015  Professional General Artist
