Skin of the Month Contest
Festival of the Fox 2017

Novilar is now hosting a new Skin of the Month contest! Each month, artists can create normal or deluxe skin(s) on the given pet base for a chance to win 6 crystals and a unique artist icon. The winner, selected from the submissions by staff, will also receive two copies of their skin (free of any upload fee)! The winning skin will be sold for gold coins or made into a universal craftable recipe until the end of the month, after which it will be removed from shops / crafting and permanently retired.

This round's pet species: Rabbit

The Winner will receive:
  • 6 Crystals 
  • Two free copies of the winning skin
  • A Contest-Exclusive Artist Icon
Skins for this round can be submitted until June 30th at approximately midnight server time. You may submit your entry by commenting on this thread. Please provide a clean, transparent 600 x 525 .png image of your skin entry, and if you would like, one with a pet modeling your skin (especially if the skin is only an accent piece).

Rules

Each month's skin contest is run the month before it is released, so players will have all of July to work on their skins. You may submit any basic or deluxe skin on the given species base (which can be downloaded from this page). Any skins you submit must have been made by you, follow all site rules, and be free of any copyrighted materials. You can have made the skin at any time, but your contest entry is not allowed to have been accepted onsite previously (or sold in your Skins Shop). The contest entries must be original in that they do not already exist as a skin on-site.

Trophies

If you win the Skin of the Month contest multiple times, you are eligible for these unique trophies! It doesn't matter how long it takes you to accumulate the required number of wins - they'll stack forever. The Bronze trophy is awarded once you have accumulated 5+ wins (over any length of time), the Silver for 10+ wins, and the Gold for 15+ wins!

@shilgiia - That is such a clever and funny idea XD To answer your question, you can enter as many designs as you'd like!

@Aquari - For the Skins, you create a custom design via an art program, so it's not anything you could create with the pet creator tool! Here's the knowledgebase article on skins to explain it a bit more. Let me know if you still have questions!

@Aquari - Don't buy a paintbrush! That's part of the contest; if your entry wins, it'll automatically be made into a skin without you having to purchase and use a paintbrush. So for this, you'll use a photo hosting site for your entry/entries!

Ooh, I love the colours you've used!

In regards to uploading your picture, try a hosting site (imgur/tinypic/photobucket/imageshack (etc)) where you can copy the direct link and paste it into the 'Insert image' tab, save, then your image will show :)
