Here is the second version of this swap, because the first one went really well! I hope to get people who are new to this swap, plus people who signed up for the first one.

This swap is for anyone who likes to create artwork on the computer and then print it out! Here's what to do:

    1. Make one digital artwork. I'm defining this as any image that has been created or visibly altered using any computer graphics program (i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, or even MS Paint). The only rule is that it can't be just a straight up digital photo, or something that looks like it's just a photo - this image should obviously have been manipulated or digitally drawn-on by you. Feel free to use digital artwork that you created in the past! (If you signed up for the first one, the only rule for you is that you have to send a different image from the one you used for the last version of this swap.)
    1. Make 2 nice-quality postcard-sized prints of your image, and send one to each of your 2 partners.
    1. Make sure to include your username and the name of this swap clearly on the back of your card, and also write some sort of message to your partner on there as well. This is required but don't stress about it! Your message could be a description of what inspired you to make your artwork, or just a story about how your week's been going - whatever you can think of to say.

If you don't feel confident that you're a graphic design pro, don't worry! Just create an image that you think is awesome, and make nice looking prints of it! I want people of all digital artwork skill levels to join this swap.

The Fine Print:
This swap is International.
Cards must conform to standard USA postcard sizes - that is, they must be between 3.5" by 5" and 4.25" by 6".
Open to anyone with a 4.5 or higher rating.
If you are a newbie who does not have any rated swaps yet, just make sure you have a completely filled out profile and you can join!

So could it have started out as a photograph and be manipulated in PS with effects and filters? Does that count?

lookcloselypress 08/21/2008 #

That definitely counts! Mainly what I wanted to avoid was the "you can't even tell I manipulated it" kind of digital image.

Are the photos to be sent as a postcard with a stamp or put in an envelope?

I've just started mine, it's so much fun!

lookcloselypress 08/29/2008 #

Cards should be sent naked, with stamps, and with a message or description for your partner to read.

My first time...when are we assigned our partners?

lookcloselypress 08/30/2008 #

People can sign up for the swap until the end of today, and then tomorrow I will have the ability to assign partners. If I forget to do that for a week after the sign up deadline, the swap gets canceled, so let's hope I don't forget!

You can definitely send the same image to both your partners! In fact, I think I even tell you to do just that in the swap description, as making one image stretch as far as it can possibly stretch is one of my areas of expertise.
