Hello Guys! As I see there´s a bit of confussion regarding the December Challenge topic. Anyone ever saw the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas? This somewhat the idea! We don´t want no ugly-fat-santa-riding a sleigh ... how about trying your hands at Rudolph riding a sleigh with Santa pulling the darn thing! Or how about making it a post card! How about trying your hands at a gift eating up a kid or something (hmm .. I sensed I went to far with that one .. LOL) anyway .. you guys get the idea ..! We want some Twisted Xmass entries!

As per the guidelines remember to keep each image size 600 x 440px (easily done in Photoshop so no excuse for that) and remember to add your name in the image´s filename (as in adldesigner_twistedXmass.jpg) other guidelines will be posted ASAP (as in TOMORROW)

ok, that is good. but i dont know how to enter. from experience i am a total newbie. and then, i won as newbie once so i could try normal. but then the other newbies i competed with cannot take revenge.

i think i enter the way other people want me to enter. if someone tells me i have the slightest chance if i enter normal, i will.

and can please one with power change my thread name to the correct name - i dont want to be the only one who did not understand it has to be "twistedxmas babyduck"

The twisted christmas challenge brings to mind the animated short "Santa vs. the Snowman," from DNA Productions, the company that does "Jimmy Neutron" for Nickelodeon. Check out some screenshots from it: Santa vs. the Snowman. AT-Igloo walkers and jet powered reindeer....gotta love that!

Hey guys, is it all right if I join this one?? I won't be able to start until after next week though because I have tons of rendering to do before finals. Let me know, Hope you don't mind a late entry, but I have a really creative Idea!
Thanks,
Brian
