Hi! This is a simple swap - get your drawing supplies ready, set a timer and DRAW! Continuously for 30 minutes without breaks. Then send them to your partner. You can choose to spend it all on one drawing or do a series of quick sketches, but I recommend hiding the eraser - there's not much time for self-critique here.

The point here is to get an extra motivation to grab the pen and do something. I hope that participants find that 30 minutes is too short of a time for such fun activity and end up doing it for the rest of the night. So the emphasis is on making, not receiving here, though it doubtlessly is fun seeing what other have come up with.

Any equipment you feel like using is fine, and you can draw on recycled paper or both side of the sheet if you wish.

This is a unthemed warm up-round so draw whatever you feel like - from imagination, reference photos or from life... I'm planning on hosting a series of swaps like this, with different themes each time.

Everyone can join, but I will check the participants and kick out them who have recent suspicious activity going on. I will angel if needed. Have fun!

//EDIT: Since this is an easy swap, I see no reason to ban unrated swappers. However, please take some time to fill out your profile before deadline! This is not a profile-based swap so no need to write an essay, but filling your profile shows that you have some commitment to the site and swapping here, and it's much nicer to send to a person than to just an address.

I extended the sign-up date by a couple of days to make sure folks notice this, as well as my answers to the questions asked below. Carry on, and thanks for joining everybody!

Any size limits?

Some can draw a beautiful atc and others could take up 11in x 11 in.

I just want to make sure I cant get rated down for drawing too small or too large.

Do you have to be a great artist to participate?

Can you draw Zentangles or just "pictures"?

PressedPennyCollector 06/ 7/2013 #

do u have to "know" how to draw lol cause im not so great lol

1) No size limits. Time is the only limit. So pretty much if you receive a drawing of some kind, you have to rate five (unless it's obviously a five minute hurried doodle, but why would anybody do that is beyond me.)

2) You don't have to be an artist, everybody can join. : )

3) "Anything goes" so you can do zentangles or other abstract free-forms.

4) See 2, welcome in!

Sorry it took a while to notice your questions! Hope this cleared it even a bit. So basically

You receive something that is an evidence of a pen, pencil, or other drawing equipment that has been rubbed against paper for 30 minutes (but is not only writing, please) sent on time, you rate 5. We all have different skill levels and speeds of working and may choose to make miniature things or huge things or anything in between. The emphasis is on making here, so basically the time you spend on the piece is between your conscience and you.

Sorry I hope I'm not too late, this sounds fun. So i can draw anything that comes into my head as long as I only spend 30 minutes drawing it!!?

Anaryawe 06/10/2013 #

Yep, that's the deal. :) Welcome in!

I haven't received a partner yet.

Anaryawe 06/14/2013 #

Hello! The partners are assigned, and you should be able to see a link to their address in the "swap member options" list on this page. Get in touch if that's not the case, then it's some weird bug.
