Well, I have been thinking about this for a while but Im just now putting it together. I thought it would be a fun activity to do.
--------------------------------------------- Okay so here's how it works. I have three quotes listed below and you need to hex a Cat or Dog specifically for that quote. If you don't see a quote here that you want to hex for then feel free to pick your own. But I think these provide a good variety and could provide lots of ideas.
I'm an angel, honest! The horns are just there to keep the halo straight.
Duct tape is like the Force. It has a dark side, it has a light side, and it holds the Universe together. - Carl Zwanig
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. - Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
The Rules? - The hex must relate to the quote in some way. - Only two entries per person. - The hex must be from an original breedfile, no extras. - Can have either a dog or cat base. - My prefix is Silver. - Please hex something specifically for this competition. - Do not steal from others. - It can be one of your own quotes. - This show closes on Feb. 22th
Prizes? - Well, im not real sure what I should offer but hexed or bred petz are an option. For First place I want to offer 2 hexes and one bred pet, Second and Third place will get one hexed pet and one bred pet. That could change over time but you will get a prize.
Form? (Insert Image) What did you name the Hex?: Base Breed?: What did you Do/Change?: The Quote?: How does this hex relate to the Quote?: Your E-Mail?: Anything Else?:

May I please save a spot? (or I'll just say that I'm coming back... since there isn't a max of entries? ) I was already planning on doing something like quote # 1 and I think it would be fun! I've never done a hexing contest before. =P I have something I sketched earlier that has both angel / evil qualities, so this would be perfect.
What did you name the Hex?: ... Fallen the Converted Coon Base Breed?: ... Maine Coon
What did you Do/Change?: - Face sculpting - converted from Coon face to more Cali-like face by making cheeks, jowls and chin smaller - Shifted one ear down - Made horn & halo from addballs - Made wings from addballs - Made claws from addballs - Made tooth from addballs - Adjusted texture to show black through - Made half white with paintballs - Textured paintballs - Altered pawprint paintball colours so opposite of paw colours - Made tail from Tail1 addballs - Removed fuzz from adult - Thickened legs - Adjusted eye colours
The Quote?: #1 How does this hex relate to the Quote?: ... Fallen claims to be an angel, but his halo has fallen to one side and he has that little devil horn. ... The quote is about dark and light, devils and angels, and Fallen is a cross between both.
Your E-Mail?: ... email@example.com Anything Else?: ... Did Fallen convert from good to evil, or evil to good? We may never know.

Can I save a spot? I know exactly what I'm gonna do, and hopefully won't be too long!
Something has changed within me Something is not the same I'm through with playing by the rules of someone elses game Too late for second guessing Too late to go back to sleep Its time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and LEAP!
The Mighty Angel Calico Base Breed?: Calico! What did you Do/Change?:
+ Added an add-ball halo + Added some spots- like 'targets' + Added Claws with Add-balls + Changed the ball + adballs color + Changed eye / iris color to blue + Changed some outline colors and agjusted the thickness, and where they show up
The Quote?: "I'm an angel, honest! The horns are just there to keep the halo straight."
How does this hex relate to the Quote?: It has some evil-like qualities.. Like it's colors and it's claws... But then it has a halo and the sweetest little cali personality. So it's good- and evil. Sort of like the quote states. =3
Your E-Mail?: firstname.lastname@example.org Anything Else?: This was really fun to do and I really liked the idea! The quotes you chose were pretty good for the contest, and I'm really excited to hear the results. =3

Bent the tail and made final ball very skinny to give it a point
Lowered the toes on all feet to give her paws a spindlier look
Shrank neck, belly, and legs
Added 25,498 paintballs with the use of tattoos (did the chest ball in spots, outlined them in black, then tattooed/rotated to get every single ball except eyes, nose, and whiskers)
Changed all outlines to black
Changed eye color to black, iris and pupil to pale yellow
Changed whisker colors
Removed all fuzz
I think that's it...
The Quote?: "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." - Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
How does this hex relate to the Quote?: The color scheme for this cat was inspired by stained glass windows, bright chips of color outlined in black. Then I colored the eyes a pale yellow to show an inner light - eyes are the windows to the soul, after all...
Your E-Mail?: email@example.com
Anything Else?: This poor kitty went through several incarnations, including one where she had a fatness of 200 to show off the detail on the balls. At one point, her body lines were also different colors, however, that made it really hard to see the stained glass. I'm really happy with the end result, though.
Alex@Marvel: Other than the initial pain from hitting it, it really doesn't hurt that much. The worst part is when the vent in the back room ceiling blows air down and it stings a bit. I'm actually more annoyed that I can't dye my hair until after.
