flower2 Snowmelt Collectable Coloring Contest grass

The first ever Snowmelt will be taking place from June 4 - 10 and we are hosting a pixel art coloring contest for this year's exclusive event collectables. Eight winners will be chosen for each of two different linearts. These collectables will be available for the duration of the event and will "soft retire" at the end. (That is, they will become extraordinarily rare and obtaining them without buying them from other users will be highly improbable).

This year's collectable set is The Springshrew:

a shrew with plants on its back, holding an acorn a shrew with plants on its back, standing

Colored items must be posted in this thread by the deadline of June 1 at 9:00 server time.

exclamation Rules
  • The file must remain a .png file in the original size and must retain its original transparency.
  • The lineart in black must not be edited or recolored in any way (including the eyes).
  • A small amount of coloring outside the lines is allowed for atmospheric effects (such as sparkles), but you may not add new black lineart to the art.
  • When coloring your piece, please be sure to use a brush with hard edges (for example, a 1x1 pencil brush). This will prevent your piece from looking "fuzzy".
  • Each user can submit one entry for each of the linearts, but a single user can only win once in a single contest.

envelope How to Enter
  • Please host your images with your image host of choice and post your springshrews in the thread using the image bbcode tags.
  • Please give your springshrews a name. Names must include the word "springshrew" somewhere in them. For example, "Garden Springshrew", "Green Bantam Springshrew", and "Steve the Springshrew" are all valid names. Names can be a maximum of 32 characters.
  • If you are coloring both lineart types, please post both of your entries in the same post.

goldgift Prizes

Winners will each receive:
  • The prize basket of your choice (choose from: Blue, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Green, Lavender, or Grey). Prize baskets contain one Squid Painting, one Squid Plushie, and one Silly Squid Hat.
