    Okay so not to keep you all in the dark on this I will give you some insight on the next paint pal AKA Dream Pal.
    Do you have someone who you have been dying to paint for ?
    Have you been praying to the paint pal gods for a certain someone to get your name ?
    Well here is your time . When I post the sign up (not until August) and it will be in 2 stages first you will have to sign up that you are in . after that time closes you will then look through all the awesome folks who signed up and then send me 4 names of someone you have been wanting to paint for and 4 names of someone you have been dying to get a painting from.
    The kicker to this one is that after I collect all this information and see who is on my naughty and nice list . I will then send out the victims names to everyone. Those who do not get someone they want to paint for may get someone painting for them who they really want. But names will go out first of September and then you will have not one but two months to make it the best of the best ... That is right you will have all of September and November to paint them and have them in the mail by December 1...

    So now lets here everyone's thoughts on this idea that has rattled around in my old lonely brain for a while now......

    I just figured that around the holidays it is sometimes hard to find or make time to do paint pal . This way not only will you have more then enough time but you get a choice too. But I am thinking this style of paint pal will be at the end of the year and not everyone we do .

    Love this idea, hope it won't be too much of a headache for you Herbypoos. As long as everyone realises that there are no guarantees, and doesn't get upset if they don't get a particular person - after all its still a paint pal and therefore already awesome lol. No disrespect to anybody intended, but I think those who participate everytime/very regularly, but still haven't managed to get the name they want, should maybe get priority if lots of folks want the same name. Does that seem fair? But there are so many cool artists around here, I think everyone from regulars to newbies (and if you haven't joined in before, then make sure you do, it's great!) should be happy. I'm happy with whoever I get, anyway, but this will be a nice little bonus.

    4 ?!! I only get to pick 4 ?.......... I'm really hoping I'm around here long enough to paint for everyone that joins in regularly. with the extended time frame maybe we should pick 4 and paint for all 4 lol.

    seriously though, its a great idea. I hope you will be joining in on this one @Mr.Micron ,

    I think it's fair. As much as I'd like a painting from an artist the caliber of @Squishy and such, I would not be bothered if someone with more time here got it instead.

    Believe me when I say Mr Micron doesn't play favorites, So if you want one from the Dragon keeper @Squishy then put the name down when Mr.Micron says 'Go'

    erm....... I don't think I said I'd paint 50 :confused: but I really need to get some serious paint onto surface. .and what better way to practise than to do some 'extra' paint pals .
    I've got all the equipment, the ability is improving and the enthusiasm is there......... if I could buy some time from someone that would be much appreciated :D

    But as for anyone on here who wishes to paint more then one paint pal or wish to send a secret paint pal to someone who has signed up just let me know . I can always give you an address.

    Lol, If you want a calibre artist, then don't put my name lol lol lol. But seriously if you really really want someone in particular, and it doesn't work out, then you could always try PMing them, and arranging a private PP swap sometime. If folks aren't too busy, you never know. Its been done before. Or as Herb says just surprise someone, he's very good at keeping surprises secret :D
