Summer Smash 2015 Exchange

What? We're repeating a theme? Yes, we are, but with a twist! We had a successful collab exchange over 2 years ago, so I'd like for us all to collaborate together again!

The theme is the same as the last exchange: What reminds you most about summer? Is it ice cream? Is it flip flops? Is it a song that puts you in the mood to head out to the sun and sand? We're interested! And so is the person you're dolling for. Go ahead and incorporate TWO (2) things that remind you of summer into your doll for this exchange and get in the mood for some heat and (hopefully) lack of finals! You may use the same elements in both dolls, if you'd like.

Wait, but what base are we using? We're using the wildly famous and incredibly diverse Ramona Base set by zipple! Be mindful of the bases's rule, but otherwise, go nuts. Which poses you want to use are up to you!

Wait, did you say poses? Yes, I did! You will be dolling one of your characters AND a character by another panda. Whoa, I know! You get to do some art for yourself! To get your dolls in the collab, you must at least complete your panda's doll. If you don't manage to finish the doll for your own character, we won't be mad.

Let's recap:
- You'll be dolling two dolls, one of your characters and one of someone else's character
- You need to incorporate 2 elements of summer time in each doll
- You'll be using the Ramona Base set (below) to doll on
- If you understand, let me know what the temperature forecast for tomorrow is!

:star: What is secret-panda? :star:

It's a monthly digital doll exchange: basically an art trade with a random member! However, the art trade doesn't go just between two people; it goes between all the members, so who you doll for and who dolls for you will be different!

:star: How can I apply for the group? :star:

Read our FAQ and rules before joining! Please read the FAQ and rules - they'll help you understand how things work here. You're responsible for reading and understanding it all! IF

The admins will then review your application. Your acceptance into secret-panda is based on your skill level and how well we think you'll fit into the group. If you don't meet the requirements, we'll tell you why and you may apply again later if you feel you've improved, or you may think about joining other exchange groups on Deviantart (we are affiliates with quite a few).

:star: Rules :star:

○ We accept pixel or tooled dolls.
○ We accept dolls made on traced or original bases, as well as baseless dolls.
○ We accept dolls on the following types of bases: full-body, knee-up, butt-up (or high-thigh). We do not accept waist-up or headshot bases. Click here for an example of what we accept!
○ We accept all styles, including anime, chibi, and realism, to name a few. Please be open to different styles.
○ We do not accept dolls made with pre-clothed bases or bases that include the hair, but if you redraw the clothes or hair, that is accepted. However, we do allow dolls made on bases with props (like a weapon or animal).
○ You must always credit the basemaker in some form!
○ Unless you get prior approval from the admins, the minimum size your doll should be is 200px tall (or 200px wide if they are laying down). This is the size of the doll (not the base) itself, from the bottom of the shoes to the top of the hair. Backgrounds and props do not count towards this minimum height or width.
○ Doll smaller than others? We can work with you if the 200px minimum is too big for your tastes. Click here for more information on this!
○ Backgrounds and animations are accepted.

Hey, I don't know about others, but I haven't received my note for this month's Collab-exchange yet.
I was wondering if mine slipped trough the cracks or something of like?

I'd like to update that Asa is no longer part of this account, and therefore she cannot participate no more in this group .u.
So I'm taking the name of ScorpionPixels all to myself :>

Ups, I uploaded the volunteer gift of Aug to the Featured Folder on accident. But then I can't submit it anywhere else, either D:

i made a quick amendment to my journal (just changed the auxillary charas available in case my ocs are kinda eh to whoever my panda is) but if my panda for this month happened to already start on their doll and it had to do with anything that i changed, don't worry about it!! :'D
