Photoshop brushes are not allowed right?

I would assume that they are OK. As long as you are making your own art out of them.

Several submissions already! Great work guys and gals! =)

@ xXxDAPRO89xXx : Yes... all entries must be square in size and at least 100 x 100.
- You can try to make the top part ('ho ho ho;) smaller in size and then paste it again into a square with the snowman inserted underneath;
- You can cut the top part into 3 pieces and divide it around the snowman, but first make it a square;
- You can cut away the top part completely and then keep the snowman, which is best for when it is scaled down.

Comment to me on my profile if you need help with it ok? ;)

@ ChromeDeathRazor : Awesome! Great job on making one that is completely original and up to date! Oopa X-mas Style! *hops like a horse*

@ Patrick2011 : It fits the theme as a 'Snow Castle' the way it is now (great catch by GhostOfHorror there), but you can always consider adding some snowflakes and a darker blue background maybe? Snowflakes could be simple with an 8 x 8 pixel size perhaps? ;)

@ KentyBK : Well done, BUT... I think you need to ask the game maker (krangGAMES) of the 'NyanCat FLY!' game if he agrees with you using his game character, just to make sure? Puzzling situation here, but I love it nontheless... =)

@ Bronze : I'll be short... *jaw drops* ... (O.O) ... awesome!!

@ pickpocket : Great work! 'Cool' guy there! *two thumbs up!*

@ R2D21999 : There are several online image saving websites. Here are a few :
~ Photobucket
~ Flickr
~ Picasa (Google)


@ kegaumongo : My appreciation in one word... BEE-UU-TEE-FULL!! =D
Excellent artwork! Really love the snowflakes the most, (reindeer IS cute btw) allthough they might even be more cheerful on a blue background? Meh... that might just be my look at things, I see everything blue around winter time... LOL

@ nichodemus : Hi-de-hohoHOO! Imma here! Well... to avoid confusion and keep it all clear, I'll first have a chat about it and I'll get back to you, ok? ;)

Keep your submissions coming people! It is looking really good so far, but we need MOARRR! =)

(My own entries will follow shortly...)

@MrDayCee: actually, I tried to add a darker background and I didn't like the result, to be honest. That's why I chose a different one.

However, if you see everything blue around winter time, then I have a couple of "blue" entries: frozen leaves (or sort of). One of them is a slightly modified entry that I submitted on the Thanksgiving contest. I know, they're not amazing.

4. Any suggestion which help me to improve mah pic is EXTREMELY welcomed lah XD

Finished mine, I don't think it's sized perfectly as to resize it I just put it in pages, resized it, and took a screenshot. I can fix it if need be though, I think.

I have 600x600 and 100x100 for you.
