unnnnnnnggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh................................................ [clears throat] ahem..

So, I love Halloween. Like, LOVE. But, I love all the things that go with Halloween (ghosts, ghouls, the undead and the likes) all year 'round.

So, for this swap, we're going to omit the Halloween theme, and just do some undead stuff. You dont have to make it orange, you don't have to put costumes on them, and you don't need to throw candy in there like you're trying to give you undeadite a cavity (if they have any teeth left, that is.)

You're going to make your partner an ATC [2.5 in x 3.5 in] The main subject will be something undead - zombie or frankenperson.. something that once was in the ground, and now isn't.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A PORTRAIT. That means that the face area [or in some cases, whats left of it.] must be the main focal point of the ATC.

Your ATC can be in the medium you choose as long as the main portion of the ATC is undead.

Draw, paint, decopauge, alter, whatever, as long as its done by your hand and you've spent time on it.


  • sticker slapping. Do not fill your ATC with stickers. In fact, NO STICKERS AT ALL UNLESS THEY ARE ON THE BACK.

  • No printing out an image and gluing it to cardstock. You must make this ATC your own, so if you are using a stock image, add your own flair to it.

Please make sure your ATC is the right size [ 2.5 in x 3.5 in] and on a sturdy backing.

Please make sure to include your SWAPBOT USER NAME AND THE SWAP NAME when sending so that your partner can rate you quickly and accordingly.

breakdown: You make ONE [1] UNDEAD ATC for ONE [1] partner and send it before the swap due date. Simple!


  • no unexplained 1's or 3's.
  • you must have at least 10 [rated] type 2 /3 swaps under your belt.
  • I reserve the right to ban anyone I see fit.

//// i am on a budget, so please, don't make me angel {I will if i HAVE to though.} . Flakers are stinky. You don't want to be stinky do you? No one likes the stinky kid! Dont be that kid. ////

My ATC will be 100% handdrawn/ colored/ painted. Just throwing that out there because some people don't like joining swaps where they get hand drawn ATCs.

So if you're not down with drawn ATCs, you may not want to join in the chance of getting me as a partner.

Not in the USA, so not joining - but I love this idea

I'm new to this and would love to join this swap. I draw and paint everything by hand, often times it's mixed media with color pencil and watercolor. I read the description and have a cool concept of what to make. I just don't know if I qualify since I have no ratings at the moment...

mermaidery 10/ 1/2013 #

@s1lentknyte you do not have enough ratings for the swap, however, I would be happy to host a private version of this swap between you and I. Will msg you also
