:rudolph: The results of the Awesome Advent Calendar Lottery are approaching!:rudolph:  Starting on Saturday there should be a new mini dress up every day until Christmas! Unless I have technical difficulties or something else comes up of course, but let's hope nothing goes wrong.

My timetables kinda exploded a bit so you won't be seeing the awesome thing I started in summer and planned to use it for the highlight of the calendar on 25th (I'll make it next year maybe). So I ended up expanding one of the entries a bit instead, hopefully that'll be fun as well.

In the meantime you can read the... awesome F.A.Q. for the calendar?

:iconsnowflakesplz:General F.A.Q:iconsnowflakesplz:

:snowflake:Q: What is all this about?:snowflake:
A: In January I hosted a lottery where people could send their entries about mini-dress ups they'd like me to draw. I randomly picked 20 winners and chose five other entries myself, and made the dress ups in the requests. Now I upload a new one every day from Dec 1st to Dec 25th for a little Advent Calendar for you.

:snowflake:Q: Free dress ups? Can I get one too?:snowflake:
A: There will be an Advent Calendar 2013 lottery (more info on it later), you can enter it if you want. However, if you try to request (suggest, give ideas, "just say", whatever) me to randomly give you gift art without following the rules of the lottery you'll get disqualified from the lottery.

:snowflake:Q: When will there be info on the Advent Calendar 2013 lottery? How can I enter it?:snowflake:
A: I'll post a journal on it (with rules) in a few days.

:snowflake:Q: Whennnnnn will today's dress up be uploaded?!?! It's *day X* already in here!!!:snowflake:
A: I'll upload it when I get there, I don't sit 24/7 on the computer waiting for the specific moment the day changes at your place. Also due to time zone differences plenty of people will get the dress up earlier than the correct day, but hopefully we can live with it.

:snowflake:Q: Why is ______ not in the dress up? It's an important part of that series!:snowflake:
A: Because the person who requested the particular dress up had their own idea what was important and didn't ask _______ to be included.

:snowflake:Q: Why is ______ depicted in an incorrect way in the dress up?:snowflake:
A: I'm not necessary an expert on the series, I just draw the stuff in the lottery entry. If I didn't understand the reference I had to guess since I didn't really have the time or interest to go through a gajillion episodes/chapters of the subject series to find out the absolutely correct way to draw ______.

(F.A.Q. about other things is here)

:iconsnowflakesplz:Special F.A.Q. to people who won at the lottery:iconsnowflakesplz:

:snowflake:Q: Did I win?:snowflake:
A: You'll have to wait to know. One winner will be revealed every day from Dec 1 to Dec 25.

:snowflake:Q: I requested ____ to be in the dress up, why is it not there?:snowflake:
A: Either the reference was insufficient, or I didn't understand it, or it was too difficult to draw, or it was against my principles, or your entry was on the verge on disqualification but still got in, making me less eager to follow it perfectly or I simply missed it; hopefully that's not the case. If I had to leave something out I tried to draw something else as an extra to compensate for it.

:snowflake:Q: Why did some other winner get a bigger dress up than I?:snowflake:
A: Some of the entries super inspired me and I felt like drawing more stuff, or they already were on my to-do list so I went for a bigger game right away instead of first making a small game for the Advent Calendar and a larger game on the exact same subject some unknown day in the future.

:snowflake:Q: I won at this lottery, can I take part in any other lotteries?:snowflake:
A: Yes you can.

ooh, i can't wait to see your awesome works! and a question:
do you have something special planned for the final day? if it's a secret, that's okay.
Hapuriainen Nov 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I had, but in the end I didn't have enough time to finish it. So 25th is one of the lottery entries as well.
Alliekat-meowmeow Dec 1, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
