    As promised, in celebration of this special time of year, some festive fun. The idea is simple, you write a list, you get presents and you give presents in return.
    There are a few rules which can you please refer to when you are making your list.
    Here they are:
    Each person who participates must put up a list of 5 ‘presents’ that they’d like to receive
    If you receive a present you must give a present back
    If you make a custom pose/item/background as a present include the text string so the person receiving the gift can use it
    If you receive a custom pose/item/background you obliged to use it at some point during the time the Santa Swap is taking place but post usage onto your own thread and mark out that it was from the Santa Swap (exceptions will be made for those who get gifts in the last few days before the thread closes)
    Don’t ask a specific machinist to give you a present, whilst they may be happy to do it, you’re excluding others from giving that gift.
    You can ask for hand drawn items if you wish, just don’t expect them to be done.

    This isn’t a contest per say, it’s just a fun way of getting into the spirit of the season, heromachine style. The thread is open from today (1st December) until Christmas Eve, so you have plenty of time to put up your list and start giving. And on that note……

    (My list below)

    My ‘present’ list
    1. Demon Girl Redesign
    http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/198/5/2/azaria_the_demon_girl_by_jr19759-d57jp5m.png
    The daughter of a human woman and a repentant demon, Azaria was born in human form but learnt of her heritage and her second form during her teens. She was raised alone by her mother, learning how to hunt demons and spirits that escape hell. Her driving force is the longing to find her father, who disappeared shortly after she was born.

    2. Back to back pose

    I think this is a marvelous idea, and I will join as soon as I’ve given my own wishlist a bit of thought.

    I love colouring so much, my list consists of black and white line drawings of:
    1 – Chinese new year dragon
    2 – Elaborate Pisces symbol
    3 – Armored rhino
    4 – Decorated Xmas tree
    5 – A design of yours that you would like me to colour.

    djuby, when you say line drawings, do you mean “drawings” or black and white heromachine designs with text files which you then colour? Just to clarify.

    upload the text files the same way you would your pictures. It will look like nothing happened after you uploaded it. What you do next is click view existing files in the upload manager and click on the folder for the current year, and then look for the number folder for the month you uploaded the picture in, in this case 11 and click it. Next click on the file once and it will add a link to that file in your post.

    Tried that. It says that the files exceed the allowed size.

    Hmmm, what size is the file ? here is the listed size limit for text files

    File upload constraints: Size (bytes): 51200

    If it is smaller then that it should be fine.

    Download hellcats.txt

    This version is in b/w with the masking still visible. Unexplainably the girl in the back has no legs, and one is now faceless. Merry Christmas anyway.

    For DJuby…hope this is elaborate enough, but I figure it will be amazing with your coloring skills.

    Here is my wish list…since I’m in need of ideas:

    1-new villain for my Frogman character
    2-new single power hero for T.R.U.S.T
    3-giant alien monster baddie
    4-new villain for Brainstorm character
    5-redesign of LiveWyre character

    Please bring all of your creative genius as I am stressed in real life and having trouble coming up with ideas. All characters mentioned can be found in my thread. Happy Holidays to all my fellow machiners!!!

    Thanks djuby, those look awesome. I was only expecting the pose at the front (the one that Hellcat is doing) but the others are a cool bonus.

    Hopefully this’ll give you something to put your presents under.

    I can’t get the text to work either, give us a few and then I’ll see if I can work it out.
