Welcome to the Animorphs Gift Exchange!

Do you write fanfic or create fanart? Do you like Animorphs? Then this is the exchange for you!

Everyone will give one gift, be it fanfic or fanart, that fits with one of three prompt words chosen by the recipient. Everyone will receive one gift, be it fanfic or fanart that fits with one of 3 prompt words they choose. Pairings and other details may be suggested, but givers are not required to adhere to requests beyond the prompts. The only guarantee participants get is that their gift will focus on one of their chosen prompts, though every effort will be made to ensure that everyone will be pleased with their gift (the more info you give in your sign-up as to your preferences both for giving and getting, the better we'll be able to match you).

Rules:

1) All work created for this exchange must be new, Animorphs-centric, and created with your recipient in mind, using one of the 3 prompt words chosen by your recipient. You may use 2 or all of the prompt words if you wish, but are only required to use one of them.
2) None of the work created may be posted anywhere until your posting day. Please do not reveal who your recipient is until then! Gifts should be posted to this community (links to AO3, LJ, or Tumblr also okay, but you must post your link with title/rating/recipient). A template will be posted in October to make this easier for anyone new to the exchange.
3) If you sign up for the exchange and DO NOT complete your assignment, you CANNOT participate next time around. If you find you will be unable to complete your assignment, PM [livejournal.com profile] frenchroast immediately so an alternate giver can be found.
4) Again, givers are only required to create a gift that fits with one of the prompts requested by the recipient; givers are not bound by other requests by the receiver. It is up to the giver to decide whether to gift fanfic or fanart.
5) Other-fandom-specific Alternate Universes and/or Crossovers are allowed IF requested by the recipient, but not otherwise.
6)FanFic: 1000 words minimum (may be divided into more than one story/multiple drabbles, but must be complete)
   FanArt: 20 icons minimum, OR 1 detailed drawing/sketch/wallpaper/gif set

Prompts:

Forgot to post this painting I did recently! :3



Once upon a time someome in this very community did a line-by-line analysis of Taylor Swift's "Long Live" as relevant to Rachel and Tobias and that's the true story of how I accidentally got into Taylor Swift. XD

If you're on Tumblr, you can reblog the art from here. I also posted process photos of the painting if you're interested in that kind of stuff!

Okay, let me start by saying this is an old piece of fan art that I need to redraw at some point. I still think the concept is hysterical, though. It started with remembering Cassie's comments in her narration about how even if mud was thrown at Rachel it wouldn't stick.




If I redraw it, it will probably be Marco launching the mud wad in response to hearing Cassie make such a comment about Rachel's inability to get dirty, lol.

Hope this is okay to post here... :o

So for 24hr Comic Day this year…instead of a 24-page comic, I made a 40-page zine/sketch collection. U___U This idea, the Animorphs alien collection, is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, so I’m glad I finally got around to it!

Preorders for the printed book are HERE. A PDF download is available HERE.

5.25” x 8.25”, 40 pages, BW interior, color covers. Includes 18 alien species: Andalites, Arn, Garatron, Gedds, Graffen’s Children, Helmacrons, Hork-Bajir, Howlers, Iskoorts, Ketrans, Leerans, Mercora, Pemalites, Skrit Na, Taxxons, Vanarx, Venber, and Yeerks — basically all the named sentient species with enough description for me to work with. (The non-sentient exception is the Vanarx, which I thought was just too relevant to leave behind?)

There are a few preview images on Tumblr and I posted various WIPs on Twitter if you wanna go see more pics (and also my dumb commentary)!

Title: Like Autumn Leaves
By: [livejournal.com profile] ladysugarquill
For: [livejournal.com profile] rideinthelimo
Medium: Digital art
Rating/Warnings: PG
Summary: They're enjoying a moment of peace, back when they still could...
Creator's Notes: ohi, I'm late, what else is new. I'm so sorry for the delay, for once it wasn't all my fault! My country had a dumb, and it messed up my schedule XD

Looks like the ansgtier the canon, the fluffier the fanworks I make. Your prompts were sacrifice, laughter, fall. Then Marco hijacked my brain and it all went down from there. A huge thank you to the mods - I know it mustn't been easy to fit someone who hasn't finished the series. You rock!

Title: Laughter, Sacrifice, Isolation
By: [livejournal.com profile] charreed
For: [livejournal.com profile] ladysugarquill
Medium: art, illustration
Rating/Warnings: G (tho there be feels)
Summary: Using the prompt "Laughter, Sacrifice, Isolation", I focused on Tobias' isolation and the sacrifice of his humanity and companionship in order to fight the war.
Creator's Note: It's early days, so that's why Ax isn't there. I thought Tobias' isolation would be worse in those first few months of being a hawk.

It occurred to me that I haven't posted any of my recent(ish) Animorphs doodleys here. :o This first one is not-so-doodley, but I'm pretty pleased with it and the fact that most people would be all "oh look birds," but we know what's obvious. 8D

On tumblr I discovered an awesome new Animorphs comic. The artist made only 3 pages thus far, but I always get so enthusiastic when I see great art in the Animorphs fandom.

So here's the link to her deviantART.

I really hope the girl continues to do the comic, because I really like her style.

And while we're at it, does anybody know more links to other Animorphs comic artists? There used to be a few people around who started doing one, but I lost track of them.

Heya! I'm new to the comm, but have been an Animorphs fan from the very beginning. :D I think I saw the first book in a book fair catalogue. Thought it was weird lookin' but I've always loved stories about animal transformation, so I gave it a shot, and I was hooked.

I have a question/request regarding the very early days of the fandom!
Sometime around 1996-7ish, there was an official fanart contest on the Scholastic website. This contest gave us our first look at a visual representation of many of these alien species, and I remember one of the winners was this amazing black and white rendering of a Hork-Bajir. I tried the Internet Wayback Machine, but it doesn't go back that far*. It's really nostalgic for me, because this was the first time I ever liked a web image enough to save it to disk and print it out, and Animorphs was definitely my big obsession back then. Does anyone still have the contest entries saved somewhere? I'd definitely love to take a little trip down memory lane and look at them all again.

Thanks for any help you can provide! :D I've been doing a re-reading of the series, ahhh it's just so much fun. <3 The technical aspects of the writing are pretty iffy, but K.A. Applegate sure knows how to spin an entertaining yarn.

*However, it is still worth browsing what copies of the site they do have up there: http://wayback.archive.org/web/19981215000000*/http://www.scholastic.com/animorphs/
It's so funny to see things like a guestbook on an official company's website! So cute and 90's.

Okay I am rather nervous about this, since the most you guys have seen from me in terms of "art" is my stick figure illustrations of why book 44 fails at geography, but - I have made some Animorphs wallpapers!

Hey everyone,

I'm currently working on the Opinionated Animorphs Book Guide for Megamorphs #3 Elfangor's Secret, and I'm going to open it as if I was making the videos in the alternate universe seen in the opening chapters, including an alternate opening theme. What I'd like is fan art as if Animorphs was published in this alternate universe. For example, the Animorphs standing and saluting in front of the empire's flag, cast pictures with Melissa instead of Rachel, war posters for the movement against "primatives" in Brazil, or whatever else you can imagine.

Anyone who wants to contibute can, in any form of image making, be it drawings, crayon, digital, whatever. I need them by August 30th, just go ahead and post them in the comments. Any art I use will be credited in the video and will include links to your personal art pages if you have them. Thanks a bunch!

AldreaHorkBajirChroniclesWeb-CharReed.jpg

All done! Finally!

This is the first half of the alternate fan-cover I'm doing for the Hork-Bajir Chronicles. If this were printed on a book jacket, this would be the back of the book. This is Aldrea, as she is running/skidding down an embankment to check on her family, who she fears is in danger, hence her expression. Next, I'll be working on Dak Hamee for the front. It never made 100% sense to me to have the cover of the Hork-Bajir Chronicles feature an Andalite, so that's part of the reason I made this alternate cover.

I changed some of the intrinsic Andalite features, namely her nose. I never really liked the vertical arrangement of the nose as it was depicted on the covers. I studied cow, horse and other ungulate noses to get a better, more natural, yet still alien look to the nose. As a nod toward the book descriptions of the Andalite nose, I made a dark vertical marking, similar to the cleft below the nose of a dog or cat.

The Hork-Bajir homeworld is surrounded with gigantic trees hundreds of feet tall. They emerge from deep valleys cracked in the planet's surface and grow high into the atmosphere. I tried to make these trees large and imposing, but we may just have to imagine these trees as saplings compared to the really giant ones. Hopefully you like what I've done so far, keep your eyes peeled for the next update! :)

I am not sure how relevant to people's interests this is, but (besides being a fan of Animorphs, of course) I am a HUGE fan of the webcomic Homestuck, which is about a bunch of thirteen year old kids, aliens, self-discovery, war and death and justice and heroism, time travel, and a giant complex chess game between the forces of creation and destruction that the kids are unwittingly drawn into.

So, basically, it was pretty much begging to get mixed up with Animorphs, and I drew a bunch of doodles to that effect. :P Mild spoilers for Homestuck behind the cut, in the "this is a thing that exists as a concept/game mechanic in Homestuck" sort of sense.

I'm not sure if this is some hidden secret that everyone has known about except for me, but I just discovered the most amazing thing ever - the Animorphs web comic! It's only been going since October, and the artist is still only halfway through the first book. It's awesome to see it in this format - and it's not disappointing the way a movie would be, or the way the TV show was.

(Forgive me if I'm the only person in the community that didn't know about this XD)
