In the spirit of 'Oldies but Goodies' here comes, directly from 2006: Deck The Forum!

 
So today I'm asking you to design yourself a seasonal avatar for the forum. It doesn't have to be Christmas, if Christmas-is-not-your-bag-baby, but it should be seasonal.

However, some of you already have festive avatars, so that's hardly fair, is it? There are therefore some required elements! To be truly successful in today's contest, your avatar needs to contain:
* One in-game item decorated with a winter ornament
* A drink
* A star, a moon or a sun

These do not need to be prominent parts of your design, but should be visible.
The avatar may be made in any style.
The avatar should comply with normal forum avatar and content rules!
Maximum size for forum avatars is 150 x 150 pixels and 60KB.
Avatar must be posted as an image into your entry post, rather than using a link.


  • One entry per player!
  • Include your pirate name and ocean
  • Entries only in this thread. If you have questions/comments, please put those in the main thread.
  • Host your image(s) on Imgur.
  • Contest will finish at game time
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline of Dec 24th at 11.00 am

The standard rules apply as per the main thread.

I had way too much fun with this :D
Petunia has a heart ornament on her head, Bernadette has a present wrapped in moons, and I am having a nice glass of wi---cranberry juice with holly on it!

The in-game item is "Hot Cocoa".

A hot cocoa bath with giant star marshmallows would be perfect right about now!

Well I don't know why I keep trying lol. I'm not that good in paint and all that stuff.

Well I gave it a try. When I see an example of the post, I don't see the image, so I hope you will see it. Cause I don't know what to about it otherwise.

Cptnronen of Cerulean



Skeleton bone tree w/ Light green/white winter ornament
Starry sky w/ Moon visible through window
Stein full of hot chocolate w/ plate of chocolate chip cookies

600x600 Version

I have always contracted out my avatars, for good reason. As limited as I was by my lack of a drawing tablet and proper media program. This is the result! I learned how to somewhat use the shading tools... The skelly bone tree; had to go through many versions so it didnt look, inappropriate.

Wayfarer of Emerald, who really misses being around people.

This was definitely a throwback-- I don't have my tablet with me, so this was made on my laptop's trackpad, like all my art used to be.


(There's an ornament on my valkyrie helmet, hot cocoa with mini marshmallows, and a star garland)

Cavatappi of Emerald

Happy Holidays everyone!
My happy pirate is dancing on tinseled rigging (hopefully that counts as an in-game item), booze in hand and ornaments aplenty! Never mind that one is definitely a carrot and some poor pirate's hook...



Link in case it fails: https://i.imgur.com/Mhn15Z0.gif

This started off much larger, which was a mistake if I've ever seen one!
Full size here: https://i.imgur.com/za7j3Oi.png

Here's my first ever attempt at an avatar!
It's a skellie doll (from the trading post) that's being christmasified by the comfort of hot coco with marshmallows and a fireplace.



I hope the image shows, but in case it doesnt:

Phaeirie, Emerald

Ran out of time, but didn't want to miss the doodle!



Cronus is the one with the stick up his as....., err, Cronus is my Christmas Fairy!
Drink is lots and lots and lots and lots of rum, barrels of it!
Stars are my wallpaper.
Winter ornament is hanging on my "tree", a seasonal trinket from game.
The tree is my swordfighting weapon, my trusty old stick.

Loved all the avatars, but choose I must!

The winner this round is Cavatappi of Emerald, who somehow got a photo of me during the last office party! (I will not confirm or deny if that's what lead to my *cough* current avatar). Receives a red/green Mark II sloop Imaginary Gift, a bluegrey Winter Ornament and 5 Shiny Sun points!

Runner-up is Lizeau on Emerald - the process of creating a skellie doll made me go awww! Receives a red/green Rocking Pony, a bluegrey Winter Ornament and 3 Shiny Sun points!

Honorable mention for Redjade of Emerald - I could have used a pillow or two while in that smelly dungeon! Receives Crossed Candy Canes, a bluegrey Winter Ornament and 1 Shiny Sun point!

P.S. Prizes have been delivered! Cavatappi: you'll need to trade the ship deed to an alt and back to update property.

Thank you so much Clotho!
This was a ton of fun, and I loved seeing the entries, they were all so cute! Congratz to Lizeau and Redjade!

Embarrassing Q: I'm a bit of a luddite - how do I get two clients open? I haven't been able to install the standalone client due to some error that it can't find a file, and Steam won't let me have 2 clients even on different computers. Will I just have to find a friend or make another Steam account?

Can't be done on Steam, the second one needs to be on the Classic Puzzle Pirates client (download here ). As an alternative, you could trade the deed to a friend (that you trust 100%) or you could send me a petition and I can help!
