The Great Pumpkin Decorating and Hunting Contest!

Attention all Leebles!  Seeing as how it's that time of year again, we thought a special Halloween event was in order ^_^ Here's how it works!

What: A 2-part contest! The first part is a decorating contest (you get to decorate a pumpkin based on one or both of the images below).  Once we receive all of the submissions, we'll hide them (as well as few other pumpkins) around the forum!  There will be two winners: the winner of the decorating contest, and the person who finds the most pumpkins. 

Choose between or... (or decorate both if you're feeling extra festive)

When: You'll have until October 27th 29th at 11:59pm PST to submit your pumpkin.  Please PM it to Astragoth and small.  Once the pumpkins are hidden, you'll have until October 31st at 11:59pm PST to submit the location of all the pumpkins you find.  The following week we'll announce both winners.

"...But I'm not an artist!" That's totally okay ^_^  This isn't an "art" contest so much as a "for fun" contest, so you don't need to be an artist at all.  It's likely we might pick one we think is really funny or cute or amuses us somehow^^  For example... This special Illidan pumpkin is a tribute to Astragoth because, well, you know... he LOVES Illidan Stormrage :)

   

Some ideas: You can mix the pumpkins with video game characters you like, make tributes to other folks at the forum, reference something from your own project, make a Halloween card, whatever you like!  But most of all, have fun!
:umbrella:
If you have any questions, feel free to post them here^^

Does the pixel pumpkin have to keep the Leeble?

Not that I'd have to do without it.  I'd just like to know.

GIMP? That's free and cross-platform. It's available on Windows and Linux, though I'm not sure about Mac - but it's quite probable that it's ported to Mac too.

Pumpkins around where I live are going to be decorated with tree limbs and powerlines the way the weather's going right now...if I've still got power, I may give this a last minute shot.

GIMP is on Mac.  However, when it comes to pixel art, I prefer Graphic Converter.  It's kind of like a Mac version of Paint but with more options - a lot closer to Paint.net but with some features traded.  It's technically shareware, but the only limitation for not paying is that you have to wait 30 seconds after startup before you can use it.  It's also more compatible with different kinds of Macs than GIMP is, and more lightweight.

(Psst- I prefer version 6.)

But yeah, I grew up with Graphic Converter.  It's a great program. :)  I could give tips if you'd like any.
