Ill be including everyone in your groups IG account as well since it’s much easier to have a group convo and share pics there (for any who care to do so). Thanks!
IG is in the mix this year? Interesting. Can you say more about that?

It’s not required. I just figured it would be easier for the groups to share their work amongst one another with a group chat on it then using the forum dm’s. I have everyone who is participating’s ig handles so I intend on sending them along with the helper groups just to encourage conversation amongst everyone. Tbh, a huge part of why I love this event is the friends I’ve made from being in helper groups and getting to share my work and trouble shoot with my helpers.

Ethan and I are also trying to coordinate a fwoosh secret Santa ig account but are waiting for the fwoosh team to review and give us approval (don’t wanna step on any toes) but if they do approve I plan on posting reveals as they happen on there. Prior to reveals starting i plan on sharing work from participants in the event for content to help gather interest in the event. Fact is we have an insanely talented pool of artists partaking in this event and I feel like we should be showcasing that. May help grow our group even bigger for next year!

Helper groups have been sent. Please be sure to remove me from your group before replying all. Each group has 5 members except 1 which has 4. If you have not been assigned a group but want to be part of one please let me know.

If you want a neutral third party to bounce ideas off, shoot me a pm. Same goes for everyone else.
Again, I'm looking forward to seeing what you all produce.

I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this one. I keep thinking up more accessories I can make, then I thought making a diorama base would be interesting, now I'm getting electronics involved... 6 weeks has never felt shorter than this!

Thought I had plenty of time, but turns out today's October. I'll get a WiP across later.

Yep. Mine has electronics too. They worked great. Glued them in place and the glue [email protected]#$ it up. Had to redo it. It's good, this time. Thankfully.

Just two weeks to go, as of tomorrow. Ugh, I've still so much sanding/smoothing to hammer out.

Hopefully everyone is getting close to finishing up. I will be doing a bunch of sanding myself tonight before I’m ready for some paint. Pretty excited to finish mine up. I’m really happy with how it’s coming together.
