Excuse me, I was wonder about your contest.
For the Snowflake Showdown, are we allowed to use pixels? ^ ^;
I don't have a tablet or anything and the best I can use is ms paint. Is that acceptable?

Questions... Will they be going on a virtual tree? Do you want them on a transparent background? (.png format)

Edit: And can they be animated? (.gif format)

Happy Holiday's ladies and gents!

I'm going to take a crack at making a random Christmas poem, so I hope you enjoy! mrgreen


Snowflakes cast upon the sky,
Christmas time is on the rise,
times of joy, times of cheer,
families far, and families near!

A smile on a child's face,
Santa's come, present's placed.
Ribbons, bows, colors laced,
the tree's lights flashing, steady pace.

Crackling, sizzling, the yule log burns,
whooshing, turning, the wind mid-curl.
Snowy blankets, cast astray,
on this, of Christmas day.
I'm a little off of sleep and am having a hard time. Haha.
So i can use a pencil to draw it and then load it up here? or it has to be a computer program?

A fewwww...quick questions. For the snowflake showdown, how do we send our entry PM to Peppermint Breath when the account isn't public?
Also, is it preferable for snowflakes done in digital format to have transparent backgrounds?

Yes the images will be going on the tree so a transparent background would be preferable. Animated images are fine.

You may want to post this over in the main thread where the contest holder you are trying to target will see it.

You can use a pencil drawing but computer programs like Photo Shop, GIMP, or even MS Paint are preferred.

Color isn't important, all images have the same chances of winning. 3nodding
