Yerfdog Bits Help Everybody! (Contest)

Avatar Bit Contest!

This is purely a computer art contest, so learn how to use your paint programs quick!

* Draw a brand-new original Avatar Bit that is Halloween themed.

* Avatar Bits must be 24x32, in PNG format. If you can't do transparency, you can make a bright purple background (255,0,255) that I'll clip out.

* Your design must be your own original work, not something from Hamumu (but it can be your rendition of something from Hamumu if you want).

* Send your bit by email to jamul@hamumu.com before October 24th.

* One entry per person! That means one single bit! Make it a whole creature, or a mask that could go on an existing head, or a pair of boots, whatever you like, just one thing, not a collection.

* I will post a poll so people can vote on their favorite bit. The top 3 winning bits will be put in the Yerfshop (at very high prices!), given to the winning 3 for free, and they will each receive 25YB.

* I reserve the right to add other entries to the Yerfshop too if I like them, and give a free copy to the person who created them.

Oh, this is pretty nice, always fun to have something new.

I just had a possibly way too overly complicated idea that would require even more moderation: Members could submit avatar bits to a sort of "market place" for X amount of yerfbucks, and would make a small revenue each time it was bought by someone. (the price for putting it up would make sure you wouldn't put up just any 'ole thing).

Anyways, I'll give this a shot, mainly because it won't take all of october. Which I think is nice.

(0, 255, 0) is bright purple in the (very limited) Hamumu RPB color system.

I'm very confused about how to set this up on Paint. Can someone show me or take a picture of what it should look like?

here's a template of sorts, so just make sure what you create fits within this, as this is the size of our avatars.

You don't need to use that pink if you know how to make pictures have a transparent background yourself.

I may make a thread later with all the other Bits i made (They are actually really fun to make),
But heres the one i chose (Transparant background so Jamul doesn't have to! yay!)


Its called the "Big ol' eye"

I also have it in other colors if for some reason people don't want blue (Orange and green and purple and gray and red and yellow and teal( Also those count as one bit. So i made a bunch more than that))

I'm pretty sure you were supposed to send it to him by E-Mail. But does it really matter?

To answer your question, yes it really does! I hope Fourwind emailed it too, because only emailed entries will be votable. Follow the rules!

Also, you shouldn't share your entry publicly... one of the reasons for emailing as opposed to a thread to post in is so that voting can be based purely on the product, and not on who made it.

And on the white backgrounds of the website, it'd be hard to see.
