Valentine's Day/Mardi Gras Challenge 2017- The party's over...
« on: January 07, 2017, 06:13:43 PM »
It might seem like there is a long time until Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras, but with the weather like it is it may be awhile until everyone thaws out.

The challenge is to create some kind of Valentine's Day and/or Mardi Gras content, be it a skin, a scope, an FX, artwork, a micro-mod... anything. Decorate your avatar in green, purple, and gold or red and pink. Create your own character with the appropriate theme.

Rules are simple:

Deadlines are February 14th for Valentine's Day, February 28th for Mardi Gras. If you are a little late, we won't care (will we?)

Post pictures of your work here so we can look at it and cheer you on.

Have fun.

To get you started, here are a couple of old subjects: Wade ready for the Lords of Misrule to take over (Might be what he calls his in-laws), and pretty in pink for his Valentine.

After several failed attempts to do the face, I decided to use the original. I've wanted to see this since I started issuing these challenges, and haven't yet. So, I decided to do one myself.

Bat Gras...



I've actually seen a pic of The Joker wearing something like this. Man, was it tempting to put a couple of jingle bells on those ears...

Saw this cartoon once where Supergirl convinced Superman that he could wear pink and get away with it.

Ask most guy and they'll tell you: it isn't pink, it's light red.

Never seems like a long time (looks over the bag of VDay candy from Walgreens on the desk). I'm in and I think I've the perfect one lined up.

Yes, they are frowning. I need to fix Ollie; he's more lavender than pink.

Valentine's Day is only two weeks away; Fat Tuesday four weeks. The first parade in this vicinity will be Saturday the 4th on Dauphin Island. We need your cherubs and cupids by Valentine's day, and your mummers and maskers the last day of the month.

Laissez les bons temps rouler.

I've been thinking about giving up Photoucket for Lent. They keep trying to hijack me to another web site, or offer me (important vital, required, necessary, etc.) updates on programs that I don't need updated, or not update my page for 5-10 minutes.
