icon Thanksgiving (+2)  
My first time hosting an unofficial contest, so here goes.

Rules
Make a hold art picture in DROD 2.0, and the picture can be anything that does with thanksgiving. Post your pictures here with anyone-edit. We will then hold a poll to see who our top 3 is! The maximum level size is 5x5, and only one level. Please only submit one entry, but if you really want to, you can post other pictures here with unofficial at the end of the file name. That's pretty much it. If you need clarification, ask me, and I'll try to reword it.

Prizes
1st Place: 10 rank points
2nd Place: 7 rank points
3rd Place: 5 rank points
Participation: 1 rank point

Thanks to Elfstone for her great help on the mods.

Deadline
The deadline is Local Time:12-05-2019 at 12:00 AM

Please participate, and have fun!

Keep posting,

EDIT: Also, I forgot one point. Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Hmmm.
Well if it wasn't for the fact that it was themed on a celebration specific to a certain country, I too would be interested in participating.

I'd participate but I'm going to be rather busy this weekend, in addition to not being very good at Hold Art.

If you don't participate in Thanksgiving, it can easily be something about Autumn, or Winter. I hope this works out!

I started to work on my entry now. Maybe it would've been better to start this contest in October, and have it end on Thanksgiving? ;)

Oh I'm always the one asking what must seem like stupid questions! Ah well, another one won't hurt I suppose - "Make a hold art picture" : is that not just like the photos I put on the floors in Seasons? If not then can some kind person tell an old lady what's a "hold art picture"?

incidentally I don't have a clue about Thanksgiving either, but I see someone has already made that point.

Elfstone, the pictures you imported into the hold were 'custom tiles'. When you make 'hold art', you use elements from DROD to make, well, artwork. You can use walls, master walls, blue, green, red walls, and obsticles!

Here's a good example of Hold Art
By Pilchard VIII. Download the top most file and enjoy! :)

A hold art picture is where you make a level and when you look at the entire level in the editor, it looks like something. Example: ClaytonW's Eye:

As mentioned above hold art isn't about importing pictures, it's about using DROD elements artistically, specifically for the purpose of making an interesting-looking level map. So, the same thing as you did in many of your rooms in "Seasons" - arranging tar to look like grapes, and so forth - but instead of aiming for the room to look good, you want the map to look good.

Well, if it's hold art, you know I'm gonna be right in there! By the way, I don't really know what Thanksgiving is, so please forgive my entry if it doesn't make sense.

Thanksgiving is when you eat a lot of food! Well, it actually celebrates when Christopher Columbus has a feast with the Indians in North America, when he first sets foot on land. Or something like that.

You could do a picture of a pumpkin, a table with food, or a turkey, etc. :D

Ahaa! Thanks Tokyokid. So - basically, just like Seasons, but on a grander scale, across rooms? I think I might have a go at this one. Will you give us non-USA-ers some hints about Thanksgiving? (I've already done Autumn and Winter in Seasons and I'd like to try something else.)

Elf.

Edit: And thanks to the rest of you who answered my question while I was looking at Tokyokid's link.

Emmm . . .





(bump)

?



Actually I was just looking to check the submission date, and realised that this thread has disappeared under the huge number of audition threads and I'm sorry if this is frowned upon, but I thought it might be a good idea to put it back near the top so that people are reminded . . . .


. . . and I'm going to stop wittering now

Well I don't think any of us knew when it was going to end, and you had the great idea to bump it in the first place, so don't feel bad.

May I plead for an extension to the deadline?

I wasted all of yesterday evening (when I had intended polishing off my submission) fighting my new broadband setup - and losing :( Another 24 hours would make all the difference to me.

I think it's done!

It is not about Thanksgiving - I know nothing about that or its traditions, so I picked up on your other suggestion. Actually it has turned out rather more specific than just Winter. ;)

Here it is.
