1. Choose a target Dig into the toonsUp website's "Artists" section and choose your victim. You might also aim some artist who isn't (yet) a member of toonsUp. In that case, send him a link to your snowball (see below). We would be more than happy if some new artists join in or if you make new friends amongst the other toonsUp members.
2. Draw a virtual snowball. A virtual snowball consists of one image or a series of panels in which the sender draws himself throwing a snowball at his victim (represented by the victim's avatar or one of his cartoon caracters).
3. Upload your image to toonsUp. In the "Artists" field, add "toonsup" and your victim's name who will be informed that he's under friendly fire.
4. Communicate. Leave a comment or send a private message to your victim to check if he's willing to participate in the snow fight.
Since snowball victims have the status of a co-author, they can add their reply to the sender's artwork. This will generate some sort of thread or gallery in which more and more people will be involved. Throwing a virtual snowball to a new artist can also start a new thread.
To make sure that we won't lack of virtual snow, toonsUp members have one single snowball to start with. If an artist gehts hit by a virtual snowball, he can thow one back to the sender AND send one more to another artist.
Possibly some of our members won't be available or willing to join in. Please don't be disappointed if you get a negative reply (or no reply at all). In that case you can choose another victim.
We hope that our snow fight will be big fun for everybody and wish you ...
OUTCH!?! Hey, I haven't finished my editorial yet. Stop throwing snowballs at me. OUTCH! Stop it, I say! Haha, that one missed me, sissy! I'm going to counter attack right now.
