:holly: Santa's Workshop is a virtual workshop, housing 99 hard-working elves. These elves selflessly grant the wishes of Deviants who write letters to Santa. So whether it's a fanart of your favourite character, a portait of your OC, or perhaps an illustration for a dear friend, we will make every effort to grant that wish. :la:


:bulletred: This is not a Secret Santa! Our group mission is to truly embody the essence of giving; we give without receiving anything in return.

:bulletgreen: Elf applications are OPEN.

:bulletgreen: Santa's mailbox is OPEN.

:bulletred: Due to the number of wishes we receive, there is no guarantee your request will be granted. But we will try our very best!
It's that time of year again! Santa's Workshop is once again opening our mailbox to all the good little deviants of deviantART. Rather than our usually mystical process, we are holding a raffle and matching children with an elf who you can work with to make your request.

To enter, please read these instructions VERY CAREFULLY! Failure to follow the rules can result in disqualification! Instead of sending a typical request for a character, you will send in a DESCRIPTION of the character you would like drawn.

Select MALE or FEMALE based on how your character appears. For example, if you have a male character who looks like a woman, write in FEMALE. If your character is androgynous or not humanoid, leave this BLANK.

If your character is humanoid, write down the apparent age of your character. So your 500 year old vampire who looks like a 10 year-old should be listed as 10.

If your character looks mostly human, write HUMAN. If your character is a kemonomimi or has minor anthropomorphic parts like ears/tail/wings, write MINOR ANTHRO. If your character is a furry or fully anthropomorphic, write FULL ANTHRO. If your character is an animal of any type, write ANIMAL. If your character is a robot, mecha, or noticeably mechanical android, write in MECHA.

We hope we've covered the majority of character types that are typically requested. However, if you want to request a character and are unsure if it falls under any of these categories, simply write in a more detailed description of your character instead of filling out the form.

:xmas: RAFFLE :xmas:
Your letter to Santa will be one raffle entry. To gain an additional entry, simply post a journal linking to this blog and/or the previous blog on elf recruitment. Then copy the link to your journal entry to your letter to Santa. Winners will be announced around Christmas. You will find out if you are matched with an elf and can then contact the elf to make your request and claim your prize! If this is popular enough, we may hold a second round of raffles so more can win!

:email: WRITE YOUR LETTER :email:
Send a note to the group with the subject DEAR SANTA and the following info:

2) AGE:
4) LINK: (optional promotional link for the group)

:holly: Good luck to everyone, and have a happy holiday season! :holly:

Just curious, but when will the group be open for new elves or wishes to Santa? I was an elf a couple of years back and would like to be so again this year. Thank you.
