Let the Wild Wonders begin! [May. 9th, 2006|12:18 am]
[Tags|, , ]
[mood |geekygeeky]

Spent most of the weekend running errands, trying to repair my guitar, and working on pony projects.
And...the Midsummer Contest has officially started!

Getting the new submission form working was tough. It works, but isn't as pretty as I'd like. If I have time tomorrow, I'll tinker with it some more.

The deadline is June 4th, which gives you plenty of time to work on your designs BEFORE submitting them. LOL, I know some of you have been waiting all year for this. ^_~

****Update 5/12: Seems like the entry form is no longer working. I'll be tinkering with it this weekend...please stay tuned for an update. Also, the entry deadline will be extended. Sorry for the inconvenience.****

Click on the button to reach the Midsummer 2006 contest!

Oh, and I'm almost finished with Flanker:

I love that purple color! ^_^

And there was a quick update to my "Links" page...you might need to re-load the page to see the changes. That's it for now...I'll answer posts and e-mail first thing in the morning...just too sleepy right now. >_<

YAY! for Midsummer!

I have only one question: Why is the base image so small? It's hard to get detail in such a little area! :o(

I didn't think it was that small...most of my concept sketches are smaller than that. If you need more space, you can draw around the pony outline & move the text off to one side. Just remember, the files will be run through a batch program to make the thumbnails. So, if you move the actual pony or resize the image, the thumbnail won't look right.

It doesn't have to be "Wild Wonders" at all, it can be whatever you want!

Aikarin, having read your rules I realsied a problem with one of my designs - it looks exactly like it's based on another character, and I didn't even realise I was doing it. It's not, really SUPPSOED to be based on that character it just... happened. is it alright for me to still enter it?

Ditto. HTML oops probably - those things are SO easy to goof up if you mistype something.
