:bulletblue:Improvement Features - Go here for information on our improvement and development features - weekly tutorials, guides, and tips about art, OCs, and story writing.
:bulletpurple:Post List - Here's the list of the past Posters and the results of the Posting. If you're not sure if you're eligible to post again, remember it's six months since the last time you posted [and you can only post the same character once a year]

Deviants

We are starting sign ups early so we can send out the assignments November 1st!
If you are new to joining please read the rules here ----> monthlyoc.deviantart.com/journ…

Also if you have not finished your piece for October you still have until October 31st to get it up. You still may not join November until you have posted up your piece for October. Which means if you finish it on the 31st you can still join the November assignment on the 31st.

This months theme is seasons! My guess is that you pick a season to draw your assigned character in? Really its up to your interpretation and remember the theme is really just a guide but make sure you are drawing your assigned character to the best of your ability.

With that said time for sign ups!

:star:Name: Your OC's name.
:star:Ref:  Any relevant links - pictures drawn by you or others, reference sheets, any helpful written information.
:star:Short Description of Personality:  Anything that gives the other person a good idea of who your OC is.
:star:Theme suggestions:  Your suggestions of what you might like to see the other person draw for you!
:star: Next Months Theme: What you would like to see for next months theme

You can submit the same OC again if you'd like, or a different one. You are welcome to submit two OCs if you would like to give your match options - ie if you have a cat OC but want to give people the option of drawing a human in case they're terrible at drawing cats, or perhaps if they're terrible at drawing humans but good at drawing cats.

Sign up time ends! October 31st!
All submissions due on November 30th!
We will also be voting for next months theme starting November 26th to the 31st.
Deadline extensions are perfectly acceptable in cases of hurricanes and other natural disasters that may prevent you from drawing and submitting your artwork online. Please inform :iconfoxbride: or :iconkaching12:

Submissions go in the November 2014 - Seasons folder.

And remember, don't start drawing until you get your assignment.

:star: November 1st I will be updating the list of participation. :star:

In addition to what angelliv said, we also just take regular art submissions of original characters, stories about them, and even memes that are relevant to original characters. This post monthlyoc.deviantart.com/blog/… has an explanation for just the regular side of submitting things.

This post monthlyoc.deviantart.com/journ… has stuff about the MonthlyOC events that angelliv explained.

Hello

Well basically its like a secret art trade. Every month a journal will be posted with a new theme and if you would like to participate in that theme you comment on the journal with an OC of your choice (please make sure you have drawn ref for the OC). Then you are given your assignments in a couple days to draw for one of the other people who also commented. You have a due date posted in the journal so just make sure you get it posted on the due date. Then you also have someone else drawing your oc in that theme. Its kind of like a secret art trade.

We are also giving away prizes at the end of the year. The person who joins the monthly trade the most will get an art book of the admins choosing and runners up get drawings from the admins.

Let me know if you have questions about anything else.
