In case you guys missed it... we got Daily 4th! woO!

If you're still working on something (anyone besides Luw?!) please let us know. Otherwise...

THERE ARE STILL SPOTS OPEN!!

We only have 15 completed pieces. That means you would have until Friday the 14th (preferably sooner) to make something. That's more than a full week!!! ...please!? ...anyone?? :(

I ain't too proud to beg! :P

Are we still doing the avatar thing, or is that dropped. I can quickly whip up something for myself if you'd like.

Both are correct and if anything the meaning is only slightly different. Froehliche is more common on christmas cards and other print stuff I guess.

but whatever here's my avatar

Now look at this! You know how to show off, huh? :P

Yes, they are still required. The group shot needs to be done by the 25th, but I am sure the avatars are needed earlier. I assume there will be another announcement clarifying this.

Third song should be the standard upon opening.
Yeah.

Do you guys think we could add Troisnyxetiene's music piece as well? I think hers would make a great addition!

K, back from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong again. I need to address some of the bugs with the Flash, but otherwise I want to let you know where we are with submissions.

This is how far I believe we have come:

These guys have delivered, and are in. There are 16 of them.
Adam-Beilgard
Artist-Lost
Creepyboy
EJR
Escalus
Flowers10
Hyptosis
JackDGreatest
Ludic
Nacco
Saminat
Test-Object
TehSlapHappy
Tomsan
Zane Zansorrow
Zombie-Monkey

Additonally, these guys have posted some pics since I've been away.
JamSession
VaguelyWonderful

I've seen some decent WIPs from these guys. Hopefully they'll get there's finished soon, cos they look promising.
Flowers10
Knocturne
Lucasv
Luwano

These are the guys I haven't seen much work from:
Absinthe (the WIP still looks like very early days)
Aigis
EthanAlways
ReNaeNae

I'll give Nae the benefit since she helped with the submission, but to the other 3 I will consider replacing your positions with new submissions unless you show some WIPs soon.

Overall, I consider 23 spots are taken. (completed pics are WIPs). DeathInk wanted to know if there were still some spaces going, so I'll offer up the last place to him.

I've been looking at it for long, and I do not think this will be a good addition to the flash.

Please, if possible, remove it from the collab completely.

Sorry about that, I'll try again next year.

Yeah thanks, i think the idea and concept are good, but im not happy with the structure/values of the characters though.
The lower guy is holding a sack of gold in his hand, but it hard to see when upside down..

Critique welcome!
Yeah man, look up some references for the arms and the faces, otherwise it's looking pretty good! You could try adding something else around them to sort of tie the composition together.

Btw thanks for your critique, i took your advice and put a texture in to hopefully tie the composition together.
Didnt feel like changing the figures much, becuase i was at a point where i'd rather finish instead of changing more stuff.

I just don't want to ruin the calendar, and I don't think I have time to start another picture. Thanks, by the way, but I don't know how to explain it, other than the fact that I just don't like something in the picture that's killing me.

Turkey, I don't want to be a dick since I know you are hard at work on this thing, but over the last two days, I can't get the damn thing to open past a blank white screen and with time sensitive medals, it's nagging me like an itch on my balls. Any chance of scaling the file down again? When Nae had it like that, things worked like a charm... :(

So heres a link to the previous one I posted up: Link
(Is it ok? If not, please say)

Also heres a character for the final piece (if you decide to use my picture ofc):

Honestly, I do find that pic slightly plain and simple went held up against the other pics. Do you reckon you could spruce it up a bit more with some extra decorations? Don't go crazy.

Sorry to bug whoever coded the flash, but my username is linked wrong in the flash. It's linked to "zombie-monkey" instead of just "zombiemonkey". Could someone fix that?

Done. Also fixed EJR and SlapHappy's stuff.

I don't want to say no, but the Audio of the current 3 tracks take up a lot of memory as it is.

The update now shows previews of the pics in the opened doors.

The big points I want to address:

At 12/3/12 12:21 PM, ZombieMonkey wrote: Are we still doing the avatar thing, or is that dropped. I can quickly whip up something for myself if you'd like.

I would like to have 24 people in the Christmas Day pic, but I ain't going to force people to make one. It's up to you if you want to take part.
The avatars that have been uploaded so far have been fabulous, though, and I could probably compile a great festive greeting with these.

Also I have 18 finalised submissions, including VaguelyWonderful's and JamSession's (who later agreed to submit). That means I'm looking for 5-6 more submissions. From what I know, we've got WIPs from
Knocturne
Lucasv
Luwano
which I might give a slight nudge to finish off (although I'll be sympathetic to Knoc, since he's told me of his situation).

That means I need about 3 pics to finish off the project. To those who are still interested in joining, but I haven't mentioned, it might be worth giving a shout to say you're still in.

I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but I think Nae is, since she's got her holiday card pic.

I tried cutting down on the white time with the way the audio loads. Not sure what to do beyond that. I'll ask around.

Ooh, that's cool! ...getting it to save would be even cooler! Good luck with that! ;)

Yeah, I was going to try to finish the other one I started for this though... since I have through the weekend now, right? If I don't get that done by Sunday, I'll go with the one I did for cards.

Everything is looking good so far! Good job ToaS and crew! ;)
