It has come to my attention that people are unable to submit to the Collaboration Project
folder. I'm assuming it's because the folder's submission settings have yet to be changed, but in the mean time, if you could please paste a link to the completed version of your character in the comments section of this journal as several others have, I would appreciate it. Once this issue is resolved, I'll post a journal and submit your pieces myself.
On a side note, we still have some characters who aren't taken. If you have some spare time, feel free to claim the some others. I want to have as many Vocaloids in this piece as possible.December 31:
We added a Collaboration Project folder you can submit to now! Check out the submissions, if you haven't already. They're looking fantastic~vocaloid-lovers.deviantart.com…
Happy holidays, everyone! I bet you're all enjoying your winter break, wherever in the world you are. But how many of you are sitting around the house with nothing to do? Do you feel in the mood to draw something, but you don't know what? Well, how about participating in a collaboration project?
For our theme, we're doing 'A Visit to a Shrine in Winter'. That means that all the Vocaloids will be wearing winter kimonos.
This collaboration will last a few weeks, so if you want to participate, make sure you will have time to finish and submit these characters. The deadline will be January 12, 2015, but if I need to push it back further, I'd be willing to do that.
I'll post a list of characters at the bottom of this journal. If you want to draw them, say so in the comments. Whoever posts a comment saying they want that Vocaloid first will get it, but take a chance and try drawing a Vocaloid you've never drawn before. If a lot of people want to participate, I'll add more Vocaloids to the list (unless you specifically ask to draw a Vocaloid not on that list. Then I will add it.) RULES
Only digital art.
Each drawing must be 1000x1500. PNG format is what I want.
There can't be any background. No white or black. It needs to be transparent. Like this.
(This is ideally how I want the image to look like. No background, single character, full body drawing
) If you have problems, note the group.
Don't add a shadow or outline behind them.
You must draw a full-body shot of them, like the picture above, in any position. They can even be kneeling of sitting on the ground. Just don't make them sit on some invisible stool or in a position that makes them hug someone.
That being said, they can be holding anything you want. They an be lifting a tray of mochi, holding new years postcards, or carrying a traditional umbrella to hide from the falling snow.
You are free to claim as many characters as you want, but make sure you can complete them all in time. You can choose your characters from the list below.
That said, only one character per drawing.
Since there are probably going to be people who want the same character, it's first come, first served. If you are the first to comment saying that you want Hatsune Miku, you get Hatsune Miku. Read the previous comments below to see if you missed your chances or if there are any openings. I'll update the journal frequently showing who is available.
No UTAUs (Unless specified) or OCs.
You can draw the character wearing whatever type of kimono you want. If you don't know how to draw one, simply type in 'Winter kimono' into Google images. This will be a great opportunity to practice drawing kimonos!
You can't draw OCs. The one exception is VY1. She doesn't have an official design, so you are free to draw her however you would like. (VY2 already has a widely-accepted fanmade design, so please use that)
Please, PLEASE make it look nice. We want your image to be drawn with the best quality possible, so put a lot of time and effort into it.
Nothing erotic or gory, please...
January 12, 2015
Please submit your finished drawing to the 'Collaboration Project' folder I will add soon!
Each drawing will be compiled into something like this!

If you're not very good at drawing patterns, here are some stock images of patterns, but make sure to ask for permission from the owner before using unless specified. That being said, try practicing drawing patterns before giving up and using stock. CHARACTERS
If a lot of people want to participate, I'll add more Vocaloids to the list (unless you specifically ask to draw a Vocaloid not on that list. Then I will add it.) Yellow bullets mean the character is available. If there is a name next to the character, it is taken.
