ooo... *rubs hands in glee* ;D ;D Moonfire's one shall be good! I doubt anyone here that is not a member of my sketchfu app (who knows, I doubt anyone here even USES sketchfu but it's still possible haha xD) shall quite understand the twist yet though as I have not explained enough stuff for the epicness to be clear on here... but still, I'll explain eventually.

moonfire: yeah, my parents are pretty cool ;)

my entry with night shadow will be finished tomorrow. assets rule (would be impossible to do the picture without them, cause of the browser time limit on my pc), internet time limits suck (without the 2 hour time limit of internet on my pc I'd have been able to finish today, maybe even yesterday) and my mum is epic :D (without my mum letting me use her PC just the night shadow one would have taken me five days total, as it is I got all three horses done in one day thanks to my mum which means two days off the total time)

I dunno why I'm updating you lot on my progress and ideas, just felt like it haha

edit:

finished the pic earlier :D

Where? How did you get that? ???


I'm guessing you mean a piece? meaning either via the market or a giveaway or the hoards ;) if you mean not having to use menu chat, just by being over 13, or you can get it via parental permission.

hope that helps :)

(yeah my brain suddenly engaged for once haha)

@snowflake30092: To enter a contest/challenge you just add the name of the contest to the description of the image. For example, in this case you would write "Family Contest". Then when a mod approves the image they will enter it ;)

@Taffylaughylol: The baby is from the "Christmas" pack in the Market :)



@everybody: Great work guys! Some really really amazing entries, sorry it took me so long to put this one into voting. There are a lot of entries so make sure you spend some time voting!

I think the number of horse fans skewed the vote a bit on this one, lol... though the winners are all great :)

I noticed that any horse families got more votes in this one than humans and other sorts of animals though :p I really really enjoyed looking through the entries this time around. Wonderful variety and some amazing posing :)
Title: Re: Family Contest (Winners Announced!!)
Post by: UnicornCrazy on October 19, 2012, 04:42:29 AM
mine was a horse one, well, pegercorn. >_< night shadow as a foal with her parents actually, which I thought people would be exited to see. but oh well.
Title: Re: Family Contest (Winners Announced!!)
Post by: Emerald on October 19, 2012, 09:34:22 AM
There were tons of entries in this one, and most of the top twenty or so people seemed to have horse pics, lol. (Sorry, I didn't really look closer at who the runners up were in this one... I was trying to get it up fast.)

eh... *shrugs* doesn't matter. I'm not really bothered where I came since I didn't place... although I have to say I was... uh... surprised shall I say, when I saw that two of the first place entries had non-made backgrounds. *shrugs* I didn't know people liked that.
Title: Re: Family Contest (Winners Announced!!)
Post by: Emerald on October 20, 2012, 11:13:46 AM
The last few contest have had a lot of "made" backdrops, but we have had quite a few previous winners using just the regular ones too :)
Title: Re: Family Contest (Winners Announced!!)
Post by: UnicornCrazy on October 21, 2012, 04:58:49 AM
okay. maybe I'll try not making a custom backdrop next time I feel like entering a contest then.
Title: Re: Family Contest (Winners Announced!!)
Post by: Emerald on October 22, 2012, 09:01:15 AM
Honestly, I think it is very hard to say what the best practices and most liked things are, since not every person votes in every contest and the subjects change as well. So depending on who the voters are, and on which images they have to pick from, the things that make a "winning" image will change.

I have entered many many more contest than I have won in my life. Most of the things I have entered I wasn't even really noticed in, but I create for the sake of creating things. Contests are just a possible bonus :)
