I've never done a wallpaper before, but I think i'll give this a shot. =3

Just a question, can someone get 1st or 2nd place AND pooky's choice?

No, no one can get all three.

Very impressive fan art. Seems almost unreal to be honest, but what do I know. Anyway, heres my entry because i would forget to do it if I waited. Also, if its any compensation, I will make larger scaled versions if anyone plans on using it.

No, no one can get all three.

I can't enter b/c I don't have photoshop or anything of that such but I think that the two people who have entered, their wallpapers look great! ^.^ I wish everyone who is entering the best of luck! :]

12-16-2007, 04:08 PM
Pooks, can you upload the .psd to somewhere other than megaupload, like mediafire/rapidshare/...? It does not like my country :/
Edit: nevermind, I got it - thanks Mina <3

Yeah, I'm having problems downloading the file - it keeps giving me an RAR file, which is refusing to open in Photoshop. I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

12-17-2007, 08:58 AM
you will need to extract it with winrar (it's like a zip file, but better). it's a free program.

As for 1st/2nd and pooky's choice being the same: If you have followed my contests for the last few years, you will notice that they have never been the same. ;) What can I say? I like having a lot of winners. I'm not big on one person dominating. Also, Pooky's Choice is usually based on theme, not CGing experience. So, a lot of beginners have won simply because they have a nice theme.

It shouldn't need to be that large. Image Attachments can handle really large images. Try making it a png file.

Ok, here's my entry. Good luck to everybody, and Merry Christmas! =3

Edit: I made a new one, changed it completely x3

12-18-2007, 05:25 PM
I'm done with it much faster than I thought I would be. Might still edit it a bit till the deadline if I have time...

12-18-2007, 10:23 PM
Something from Japan? That sounds really tempting. *-* A calendar as a prize seems good to me. Or those little wooden slippers.=b

12-19-2007, 08:23 AM
geta? The issue with them is that some countries are really particular about sending items that are made with natural materials. For example, my friend sent something back to Aussie once and it was rummaged through because it had some straw weave decoration thingy in it. But if it's packaged... I was thinking either anime related or something like a bento set or magazine (cosplay, CG, anime, etc). Also, i'm heading to the big end of the year comic con in Tokyo next week. :D :D :D

12-19-2007, 09:22 AM
*-* I wanna go too.=b Have fun there Pooky.

Well I'm sure whatever it is you decide to give as a prize, we'd all appreciate it. I mean, normally, we don't even get any prizes (aside from points and banners of course.) for these contests so knowing that one is coming in the mail, no matter what it is, is okay enough for us. Or at least for me.^^;

Baka Black is right, we'd appreciate anything really. Even points and banners! x3

But the prospect of having something other than the mentioned two would be totally awesome!

How about some kind of anime plushie? That would be cute. =3

12-19-2007, 06:48 PM
Hope it's okay that I'm entering, since I'm really new to the forums.

It was fun to put together, anyway. :]

12-20-2007, 06:50 AM
Well, I should've liked to have entered, but due to issues my comp has with .rar files and the fact it kept telling me it was a corrupted file, I can't. Good luck to everyone else though.

12-21-2007, 09:16 PM
done at last =_=
heres is my entry! very hideous indeed but whatever x3
i might edit a little before the deadline...maybe x]

Good luck to everyone else! ^^

12-23-2007, 08:06 AM
After much consternation, I finally have a wall to enter the contest, though I'll be gone for the next 2 weeks.

12-23-2007, 10:02 PM
Decided to enter last minute... verrry last minute o_O

12-23-2007, 10:18 PM
Well here I go again entering contests... This was pretty fun all in all. Good Luck to everyone entering!

With such a beautiful piece of art, who could resist doing a wall with it? ^^

a few people forgot to add either www.animegalleries.net or www.animewallpapers.com to the wall. Please do so, so that you can be considered for judging thank you.

Would anyone mind if I submitted all wallpapers that are here? To my wallpaper website? For showing to other people. I would offer this free if everyone agreed it would be a beneficial plan.

Just a question, let me know.


The website name is [REMOVED]

This should be dealt with privately. Please PM Kaitou Ace or Princess Minako for an answer.
