View Full Version : [contest] December/Winter Holidays contest

12-11-2005, 11:14 PM
It's time for the annual December Holidays contest! We have been having this contest for yeeeeears! (well... for as long as I have been a mod which has been... yeeeeeeears!) Every year we have a large turn out and I hope that this year's is even bigger! Last year was the "color me blue" theme, which was very successful. This time, the new challenge is...

"Snowmen need love too"

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to make a wallpaper that has a snowman in it. I repeat, the wallpaper must have a snowman somewhere in it. It can be the main character or just in the background, but we must be able to see a snowman.

Theme: December/Winter Holidays.
Task: include a snowman
size: atleast 1024x768
amount: only one wallpaper per person, no collaboration walls, please.
due date: December 31st (tokyo time)

Cretiquing in this thread is not allowed. If you think an individual's wall is nice, tell them in a PM. Keep this thread spam-free, please!

Many awards avaliable! These include the ever popular Pooky's Choice and Member's choice, as well as many others! Submit your wallpapers into this thread (please don't spam this thread!! thanks). You may change your wallpaper as much as you want until the due date. Happy CGing. <3

Can it be a picture of a real snowman? Or does it have to be anime?

I went with my own initiative and just used the best damn snowman pic I could find xD
Anyway I think this font suits it well as it's called "Christmas Card"
The result:

MistressPookyChan, I' m sorry .. I must have overlooked it or something, though I don't know why . My excuses for my misbehaviour. Well I 'll guess I could wish them all (now there are 3 more walls) all good luck, and may the best win!

Wow. Nice one sword.

Sword: Any snowman will do; real or animated. I don't care as long as it's a snowman. You can edit the wallpaper as much as you want until the due date.

Abba and Color: Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. Cretiquing is not allowed. If you think an individual's wall is nice, tell them in a PM. Keep this thread spam-free.

Here's my entry with a snowman in the corner :)

Great job so far, folks! Loving the snowmen.

Remember, the topic is December Holidays. So, it doesn't have to be about Christmas. Don't feel pressured into making a Christmas wallpaper if you don't want to. :) Wintery is ok. Kwanzaa is ok. Just make sure there is a snowman in it.

Keep them coming!! <3

Greetings and Merry Christmas all! I only joined today but stumbled across this aweing thread and decided to contribute my own wallpaper with the snowman theme ^_^ Hopefully though that not only 'anime' art is accepted and that illustration arts are also permitted - if not then this entry into the contest can be removed any time for your pleasure ^_^

EDIT: Okay well that Chen Shu Fen and Common wallpaper is not really anime to me >_> So here' s a Nana wallpaper instead <_<

Snowman is used as a brooch in this one >.<

Kuro: re-read the rules, especially the part about having to have a snowman in the image.

12-26-2005, 06:36 PM
MistressPooky: Uhmmm ... there is a snowman in the image. >_>;; It's on her top. >_<;;;

The rules didn't say how big the snowman had to be on the image, so I decided to make it fairly small as a fashion accessory.

12-26-2005, 07:18 PM
ooook, I see it now. Didnt see it before. I suppose that counts. Ignore previous post.

12-29-2005, 03:03 AM

12-29-2005, 05:25 PM
Here is mine. I was really lacking creativity. It's time to submit.

:happy: Happy Holidays
