October, 2016: Dia De Los Muertos
1 Attachment(s)
It's October and that means it's time for a spooky Halloween theme! :eek:
Get your sugar skulls ready because this month's theme celebrates the Mexican "Day of the Dead". With it's rich colors and vivid history you will not be short on inspiration!
You can design characters, a full scene, or objects (like sugar skulls or alters and offerings). Just make sure it's bright, colorful, and encompasses the festive nature of the holiday.

All entries are due October 31st 11:59PM PST. Any entries submitted after this will not be accepted, no exceptions. Good luck and Happy Halloween!

edit: Winners Announced!

Little altar spirits
Hi. Having another go at one of these challenges. Please forgive any errors, where I live as far as I am aware this holiday is not celebrated so my only knowledge of it is from web search.

I honestly don't know why my upload only shows as a thumbnail *coughs* - Feedback is very welcome!

Hi Camacaileon. I had the same problem with thumbnails on my first upload too. I shall try to answer as clearly as I can. First you need to upload your picture to a website somewhere else, I used deviant-art but anywhere you can upload to should be ok. Next you need the address of the image, I right clicked my picture on deviant art and selected 'copy link address'. Next in your forum post here within the message box type [img] and without leaving a space paste the link address then again with no space type [/img]
What it should look like is [lmg]yourpaintinglinkaddress[/img] check with preview that it has worked and don't forget to add the / to the last [img] like I did
