The PC has been quiet lately so midnightwolf and I decided to run monthly/twice a month showoff contests.
Info * Everyone who submits an entry gets a prize. -Each contest has participation prizes at the bottom. It's your choice if you'd like one or not. No hard feelings if you prefer to just shoot for the top 3 winners. The participation prizes are sent at random. You need to post an entry to get a participation prize, not just posting to say you'll enter. Once you've posted an entry, I'll send your prize. * Ends January 24th. Each contest lasts 2 weeks. * Even if you're a beginner, I encourage you to take part. It's all for fun and practice makes perfect. * That said, I do want to see effort put into your entry. This is not a crap-shot for free hexies.
Rules * Must use your own petz * One entry per person
Prizes 1st - 1 Custom hex, or any Available or Limited from MidnightWolf's archive 2nd - 1 from Available or Limited from MidnightWolf's archive 3rd - 1 from Available from MidnightWolf's archive Archive Participation Prize
* I will add more as people enter. The amount of prizes here is NOT an entry limit. (Permission to use Midnightwolf's prizes)
Goal * Make your best showoff using ONE of your petz. Create a showoff image using any poses, any size, any graphic enhancements, anything you want. Showoffs will be judged based on quality, effects, visual, effort, etc. You can add a description of how you obtained the pet, or anything else you'd like to mention about the pet.
I did my graphic with Blossom from Elfie! Sorry it's kind of messy, but I don't have photoshop so it was done in paint... hahah.

This is my banner with pictures of my dog Sadie hexed by midnightwolf.
She's based off my real dog so I put real pictures of her in the picture frames! This shows the many sides of petz Sadie which reflect real Sadie. Real Sadie is certainly weird sometimes but I will say she is much more of a lazy bum xD
So here's a bunch of cute pics of her. One looking in the window longingly and some others being cute and sticking their tongue out.
This is my boy Webster! I adopted him in March of 2016 from Shadowcat over at the PKC. He came to me as a puppy and from there he was naturally raised all the way up into what you see above! Webster is from some pretty long lines of selectively bred Boxers. His great great grandparents are from 2009. Not sure if anyone remembers Pixel Perfect Kennels? If you do, the "breed" may be recognizable then! Currently, only through adoption are you able to get these pups, which is why he is so special to me! At the PKC, Webster is also known as Illusion Just One of the Guys. He already has 2 points to his name! Overall, this mush is such a ham, being one of the biggest goofballs at APK. Not sure if you can tell from that bullie face lol
~Thank you for hosting these! Can't wait to see what you both will open in the future!~

RebeccaMonkey That shot of Sadie looking through the window is so adorable!

Introducing Sana the Great! This is my babygirl, Sana, and she's a purebred great pyrenees that was part of some litters I bred for my start in PKC showing, but she ended up as more of a companion pet instead. I often take her out with a bunch of muttlies, and she's super patient with them, lol. Shown in the photo is a bunch of her moods, my favorite being the one of her relaxing in the basket as if it was a hot tub or something, haha (it was actually just her standing on her hind legs while in the basket).

Thanks for the entries, everyone! I've finished judging, and...
First Place: Heartfelt ! I really like this graphic a lot. It's bright, has humor, even has a Petzy charm to it with the background. Also, dunno if that's artistic touch or some font, but the way the pet's name is written with the cool transparent font...that's pretty awesome. xD I also literally just noticed the '(*great pyrenees)' at the bottom and it made me laugh. xD
Second Place: Bird ! I really can't tell what I'm looking at, haha! At first I thought it was some image you found online and put your cat's pictures on top of, but then I noticed how it looks like the cat's name is actually PART of the background. Did you draw that? Regardless, even for a smaller graphic, the way the alley looks with those wings, and just the whole overall feeling I got from it...that's pretty freaking amazing.
Third Place: Koda@APK ! I actually thought the blue background was some kind of clip art found online as-is, but looking closer I see you used an eraser tool to modify it, and you actually made it look pretty professional, if not a bit rough. xD ANYWAY I think if I tried something like that, it'd look very crappy, but somehow you pulled it off nicely!
HMs: RebeccaMonkey ! Even though you didn't place, I just had to say...you were SO close, and I had a tough time choosing. As if adorable Sadie all over the place wasn't enough...I like that you were including your real dog into the idea, by having the Petz version of her do things the real one does, such as looking sadly in the window. xDD The graphic is just fun all over the place. It puts a smile on your face.
All in all, the graphics were all really neat, and I had a blast with this contest. The idea for it was midnightwolf 's, and I LOVED watching the entries come in. I'd really like to have another contest like this someday...I hope you all had fun with it, and we can maybe do this again sometime!
Ahhh thank you for the second place! And congrats to the other winners! <3 This was really fun and we definitely should do a contest like this again sometime!
If you're curious, I did the background by using a brush with rough textures to make a gradient, then slapped a free concrete texture image on it to make it look grungy. I drew the name and the wing myself. Honestly, the goal was to kinda make it look like something a goth would make and put on their myspace in 2005. Did I succeed?
gingerade: And welcome new and returning members! ^^

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha
Mar 28, 2021 13:28:37 GMT -5
Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.
Mar 30, 2021 14:37:35 GMT -5

Alex@Marvel: So I decided after (I don't even know how many) years of Gotham being my prefix, it's now Marvel. ^^ I felt like it was time for a rebranding.
May 10, 2021 12:34:42 GMT -5
Catbaloo: So you've gone from DC to Marvel?! lol
May 13, 2021 9:11:55 GMT -5

Gray Dragoness: I really wish eyelids were based on the main coat color... or just all black, either would work for me
May 15, 2021 7:08:00 GMT -5
Alex@Marvel: I don't forsee me ever going away from my Sammies, Thor, but I am still searching for the right cat breed so technically yes?
May 15, 2021 16:27:38 GMT -5
Cherry-Spot: Oooo rebrandings are cool
