If your name isn't in blue, but you DID make your port, please make sure you've sent me a copy of the port.
If the person who made the port for your char is in blue, but you did not receive your port, please PM me.

Merry Christmas, all!

Everyone should have their names for who to make ports for at this time, sent to them in PM by AzothRei!
If you have not received the name to port, please PM me, and I'll see what I can do.

Entries are now closed! Thank you to all who entered, and even more thank yous to all who donated to the raffle!

The name drawing will be on the evening of monday the 3rd (soonest time both me and Azoth have coinciding time off, so sorry for the delay ): ), so look for the name of the person you get to port in your PMs around that time!

Please note: You are still able to donate prizes to the raffle if you wish to. I'll be accepting donations for it up until december 25th.


Almost forgot to post this today!

So here we go, starting up this special edition of the FAZ Secret Santa Portrait Exchange:

"For those who don't know, Secret Santa is basically when a bunch of people put their names in, and then names are drawn for each person. In real life, you'd get a gift for the person who's name was drawn for you. On FAZ, you'll make a portrait of their character."

What's so special about it this year? Well, this is the 5th year anniversary of it. So I've decided to do something special, in the hopes of inspiring more people to finish their entries in a timely manner.

This year's Secret Santa will include a prize raffle! Since I am the host, I will not be in the raffle, but anyone else (who finishes their ports on time) has a chance to win!
There will be one name drawn to win the entire pot of prizes. Right now this is what this 'pot' has in it:

Port Space (donated by Farren Dustfur)
Life Ottifet (donated by Archery)
PortSpace (donated by Pastor)

If you wish to donate a prize to the pot, just whisper me in-game or message me here, and we'll see what we can work out.
The due day for getting your name entered in the raffle is December 31st. This means you must have your entry done and sent to me by or on this day in order to be elligible.

Alright, now on to the part everyone really wants!



"Each portrait should be 95x95 pixels or it looks weird when the recipient tries to upload it. Most people will likely want remap, but be prepared for nonremap, as well. This is an art exchange. Please do not expect to get a port space to upload your portrait in from us or anyone who enters. Getting a space for the port you receive is your priority.

Only one entry is allowed per person. So choose the character you want ported wisely.

Artists of any level can participate, so don't be scared away from this if you think kindergartners draw better than you do (chances are you're wrong, anyways xP ).  It'll be much more interesting, in fact, if artists of all levels of creativity and style enter.

Only post if you are serious about this. Don't post if you don't think you can get your entry done by december 25th. However, if you enter thinking you'll have time, and it comes up that you won't, please send me a pm stating as much and I'll try to work something out with you. Also, please don't post just to get a free port, without expecting to have to make one yourself. That's not fair to the person who's name you get.

Put in your best effort. As it says in previous secret santa threads, 'don't half-ass it'. We expect the best work you can muster. If you want a good port, you should likewise make a good port.

Don't get mad if, when December 25th comes around, you get a port of lesser quality than you wanted! As stated, this is artists for all levels of talent, so enter expecting crayon scribbles so as not to get your expectations too high.

Also of note, since there seems to have been some confusion in previous years - You must send your finished port to me as well as it's recipient (but don't send it to it's intended recipient until december 25th!)

That's it for now as far as rules. However, they may change or be added to if I find it's needed."


November 1st: Entries open.
December 1st: Entries closed. (Please do not ask to be entered after this date.)
December 3rd: Names Drawn.
December 25th - 31st: Entries due.
January 1st: Raffle winner should be drawn on or near this day.

Character Name: Ephemerality
Remap or Nonremap: Nonremap, please.
Gender: Male
Age: Looks to be in his mid-late 30's.
Species: Nocticorn. Pretty much the fusing of a unicorn and a Nightmare.
Anthro or Ferian: Anthro
Traits: He's a zombie. But not the shambling mindlessly kind. He's pretty smart and quick, actually.
Markings: None
Extras:  Brown leather gloves, red skull and crossbones scarf, fancy, well kept cutlass, a black tri-corn hat with a single-horned skull and crossbones on the front and trim, and an eyepatch with a small version of the same skull-and-crossbones on it.
Clothing: Black frock coat with red trim, over a red vest with black trim, which is over top of a dirty long-sleeved linen undershirt. Also, silky black pants, somewhat baggy, which are tucked into thick leather boots with a pattern of skulls and crossbones around the trim.
Expression: Usually a very confident grin or smile. The kind of expression you imagine a successful and happy pirate wearing.
Likes: He loves the pirate life. He'll rob about anyone, and until recently tended to target mostly other pirates. He loves life at sea on his ship, as well. Otherwise... he's a zombie, and while he doesn't partake in brains as much as other zombies, he does enjoy the occasional lump of good flesh and a tankard of Undeath, the zombie liquor.
Dislikes: He hates being enslaved or slavery. If he comes across a slave ship, they don't have a chance at all.
Where are you likely to see them: On his ship, a big galleon, not typical of a successful pirate, but being a zombie, he doesn't seem to care. It's a big wooden ship, the timbers aged to a greyish black. The sails and rigging upon first glance appear to be tattered and give it a haunting appearance. Otherwise, picture a 'golden age of pirates' type setting. Late 1600's to early 1700's.
Miscellaneous: He's an illusionist and can teleport short distances (like from one ship to another during a battle.) He cloaks his ship in an illusion of fog while a weather mage on his crew summons up a fine mist and stills the wind when he's creeping up on a prize. When he teleports to another ship, he uses the illusion of black shadowy fog to make it look like he coelesced out of the shadows rather than teleported.

What is your 'Artist Alias': Farren or A. Drake

Highest Rating: I'd prefer no higher than T+, please
Animation: None required, but if the artist feels up to it, maybe animation with him on the deck of his ship with the wind blowing in his hair? Or doing some piratical deed.

Eyes: Red
Hair: 'Flame colored' - mixture of bright reds, oranges, and yellows.
Fur: Black, same texture as goat hair.
Markings: None.
Vest: Red with black trim
Cape: Frock coat, actually. Black with red trim and gold coins for buttons.
Trousers: Black, silky, baggy.
Bracers: Gloves, brown.
Boots: Tall, top flops down, black with white skull-and-crossbones pattern on the trim.
Badge: Eyepatch, black with a large single-horned skull-and-crossbones with smaller ones circling the trim.

Clothing: ( X )

Likes: She likes to bake.
Dislikes: X - Rated anything, Drugs.
Where are you likely to see them: In parks or the kitchen.
Miscellaneous: Plump! Not fat. She'd argue that till the days end, an argument filled with giggles, that is. Her body was covered in a layer of sherbert colored scales that were soft to the touch, unlike the usual tough protective scales you'd find on a dragon. A frenzy of tufted hair that formed some-what of a mane could not be held back by the bandana she had tied behind her ears. You'd never see her frowning, as she was always happy. More often than not carrying a bag of pastries in one hand, and a notebook in the other. She was her own personal baker, always creating and recreating goodies for herself and close friends.

Extras: Cuts all over  body. Usually always has a black eye or two. Big plugs in ears with upside down cross-earrings looped thru, septum, cheeks, and collar bones pierced,

Clothing: Usually a black bandeau under a studded denim vest and short denim shorts with gun holsters around thighs. Otherwise seen in more casual "pin-up" attire.
Expression: Usually some sort of sarcastic smirk or sadistic "if only you knew" kinda look.

Likes: liquor, tattooing/tattoos, fighting, cigarettes, sarcasm

Dislikes: hangovers, magic, flamboyant types, being out of alcohol, not getting her way

Where are you likely to see them: a bar, tattoo shoppe, breaking into your house

Miscellaneous:  Stained red hair played home to a bandana tied atop head - fringe falling above painted brows with back pulled into a low bun. Exotic caramel markings waterfalled down from heterochromatic pools, traditional tattoos and piercings scattered over her body, gauges decorated with dangling jewelry threaded through. Denim jacket fell loosely over laced bra, corset trained waist exposed until their inevitable run in with over bearing hips, slapped with skin tight shorts. Criminal and sadistic ways struggled under a layer of insecurity, wrapped tight in a facade of perfection, and topped off with a barage of sarcastic turn downs.
