    Teen Challenge 101: Christmas

    First off, congratulations to OmertA for winning Last Teen Standing--your banner looks beautiful. Nibras (lilnebo) will be stepping down as moderator in the Teen Challenge Section and has decided that Nyctalgia and I will be replacing her as the mods who will be running it from now on. I know a bunch of you guys are itching to get started with the next round, so here goes.


    Teen Challenge 101: Christmas

    The topic for this round is Christmas. This is very open to whatever you want. Have a weird idea? Go for it. Santa redesigns, his sled flying through the air, the simple joy of Christmas (or if you hate it then the terribleness of it), elves making toys, a Rockwell-esque painting. Whatever. The deadline is a bit longer since it you will probably be busy this holiday season. Have fun with it!


    DEADLINE: DECEMBER 31st

    I expect to see zombie-santas eating children, exploding gifts, evil reindeers and flying christmastrees. So get going everyone!

    (No rush though, you've got one and a half week)

    You'll have to post the final in the finals thread when it shows up near the end of the challenge.

    First time challenger here. Woooo!

    Let this be a lesson to myself to NEVER start on projects a day before it's due. xD
    Teen Challenge 101: Christmas

    Next WIP: Completed foreground.
    Finished -fingerscrossed-: Everything done.

    Got any advice? (Are you even allowed to give any?)
    Also, is it due before the 31st, or before the 31st passes?

    anaiira: as long as you get it in on the 31st you should be fine! a little bit confusing cause its 230pm on the 31st here so timezones are a litttttle weird D:
    of course you can give advice! that's the idea of this thread hehe
    id gather reference/inspiration for this, it boosts workflow like a mother fucker

    I'm in same timezone as you anaiira
    His right arm( the one pressing against his forehead) makes it look like hes leaning that way (his shoulders are uneven). I also don't feel like he's actually pressing against his forehead, more like he's just lightly touching it. Kind of a small thing but w/e. keep going with your concept!

    Ahh late starts..weee
    I'll be going at 11:59 PST of the 31st
    Sike I doubt I'll finish with only one day left - going to sleep and try tomorrow anyway.

    skMOP I believe I'm right across the border.

    Also, thanks for the advice. That was really bothering me too. I think I'll drop his arm down a bit, and move it around and fix some ragged edges. His arms are really... ARGH! :@

    I like your concept. There are only two things that I'd have to gripe about now. Her cape falls a little bit weirdly. It looks like she's stopped and paused, but the cape looks like she's still in motion. Aaaand she steals a candy cane? Really?... Really?

    Otherwise, I think she looks cool.

    I'm off for the night. Let's hope that a couple of hours tomorrow is all I need.

    Yeah sorry about the confusion with timezones and all. I talked with Nyctalgia about it today and we decided we will make it GMT for future challenges, but this time around because I wasn't clear just make sure it is still the 31st somewhere in the world .
