I wanted a place for folks to show off their hexes of all shapes, types, and sizes! I realize that its really hard to pose (and judge!) a show that has fish, honkerz, dinosaurs, etc., so I decided to combine this idea with inspiration from Tephis and their Randomized Dog Show. Once the show is full, 5 entrants will be randomly selected to place BIS, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and HM.
Rules: - Wildz/hexez ONLY! - 2 entries per person: photo, showname, callname - Standard dogz/catz pose (to the best of your ability) - Will judge at 10 entries
Hope you guys enjoy coming up with fun show names ^^
Results 10/6/2018: BIS - Kelpie/MAT's As Quiet As A Mouse "Mousie" 1st - Kimberly/MW's Your Final Debut "Reaper" 2nd - MW's Where's the Beef? "Manea" 3rd - MW's Cupid is as Cupid Does "Baloo" HM - MW's Click Clack Moo "Cowvia"
Results: BIS - Kelpie/MAT's As Quiet As A Mouse "Mousie" 1st - Kimberly/MW's Your Final Debut "Reaper" 2nd - MW's Where's the Beef? "Manea" 3rd - MW's Cupid is as Cupid Does "Baloo" HM - MW's Click Clack Moo "Cowvia"
(I hope you enjoy this: I'm not great at art yet, but I'm trying to practice using Gimp!)
Thor's Highlights: - I think my favorite hex is Pink Lemonade! <3 But Grommit is a beauty from my childhood <3 - Showname "Genetic Hexperiment" is such a great one! - I laughed at "Where's the Beef?", "Not My Wings" (like buffalo wings?), and "Your Final Debut" (glad this guy placed ^^;; with a showname that threatening...)
Alexzander: Good job, both of you! I have not christened my laptop with petz posing yet. I will wear a shiny flat spot on the spacebar! I had to replace a keyboard once from wearing out the space bar back in the day xD

stancymckatt: I've been playing with IrFanView and I it can make transparent Pics (PNG and GIF) in batches, and it's a lot faster to load than GIMP. I haven't used it for that, but it'd be worth a try if you need to do a whole lot.

keyglyph: I use both IrfanView and GIMP depending on what the situation needs, so I second both of those free and open-source recommendations!

Alexzander: I've heard of that irfanview but never used it. My Photoshop takes about 10 seconds to load so I just use it XP I'm spoiled, I know.

rhococo: Bah I'm so frustrated trying to get the eyes perfectly level for a dali pose on this dane/dali mix. Do some dogz just not ever pose with level eyes?!
Jun 11, 2020 11:15:01 GMT -5
midnightwolf: What head does it have? Dane would be a pixel off, dali is possible to get level
Jun 11, 2020 13:10:00 GMT -5
Thor: Mixed breeds sometimes won't have level eyes I learned... sometimes things like personality make the poses weird too.
Jun 11, 2020 14:37:29 GMT -5
rhococo: I think I finally got it, it's dali head but dane ears. Fingers crossed...

Thor: If you ever want particular advice on certain poses, def post in the Posing Help & Advice board. Super helpful things I learned from there <3

rhococo: How many petz do you guys like to have actively showing at any given time? Is it always the same or does it fluctuate? Do you ever worry that the judges are getting sick of seeing one of your petz? lol!
Jun 13, 2020 22:35:05 GMT -5
Alex@Gotham: I don't usually count.. ^^; But, it fluctuates depending on how many offspring I get out of a retired show cat, or if I get a new sammy that poses for me.

keyglyph: Dumb question here, folks. Does MPA (My Petz/Personal Adoptions) mean a pet you either bred yourself or got from the AC, as opposed to an adoption from another Petz player?
Jun 14, 2020 23:18:14 GMT -5
rhococo: I've always taken it to mean any of those. However you got the pet, it was "yours" at some point and now it's time for a new owner.
Jun 14, 2020 23:42:48 GMT -5
Alex@Gotham: It means both, just up to the person.

Ratqueen: I'm having a problem with the host I'm using, so all the images are currently broken. Will be uploading some to an image host for now, but if you see broken images, that's the reason .
