Welcome to the animal kingdom!

Werewolfs, kangaroos, lions, monkeys, bats and vultures and any other wild animals/birds are welcome ( some have been domesticated over the years but hell, this time we are going jungle ~roooaaar~ on and lets explore the deep jungles.

Oh and by the way usual rules apply...no recycles and like Master Suho so wisely put it...

quote:
... there is no need to post here just to say that you're going to be participating. If you are going to participate, then do so and submit a sig. We don't need to hear about your intention to join. We also don't need to hear about how cool you think the idea is. If it is such a cool idea, make a sig!



[Emp edit: Perhaps some people might benefit from being pointed to the rules:

:FAQ:

quote:
The judge for the month posts his/her rules, and makes his/her judgement on the sig comp winner. Respect this. They have determined their judgement criteria, and that's the end of the story. If they say 'no animations', then feel free to make an animation, but don't be suprised when you don't win.



If kaboi said sigs can bee 800x600 and 250kb then I could see people raising objections but whether or not a name should be on the sig is:

1. Very minor.

2. Something we have discussed before and decided it was up to the judge.

Now back to the competition...........]


Good luck!

OK, I have very little time at the moment, with exams and the like, but this is such a good topic I felt like experimenting a bit. I might do some more work on the animation when I have more time, but for a first go at painting without the gooey stuff, I'm quite pleased. Not any specific sort of cat. End of preamble.

I found it hard to keep the file size down. If I reduced the colours any further it looked blurred, perhaps I could reduce the image size a little more, and loose some detail?


[edit2]The Chameleon has Changed and slightly smaller size.

Taobaybee, I love your sig idea! But if youíre looking for a way to reduce the file size, I would make the chameleonís tongue less detailed. I used to work at a pet store where we sold chameleons, and when they eat, they zap that tongue out there really fast. Iím sure you could find a web site that explains this, but I donít think that the tongue is curled that much, either; whenever I saw them eat, it looked like it was stretching, not unfolding. So my suggestion (if you want it!) is to decrease the file size by making the tongue faster and more realistic, and therefore use fewer frames. You might even try to find a video of a chameleon eating online and use it for reference. Itís a really cool sig and, if this matters to our judge this month, it would be terrible if you lost points for file size.

A very Nice and Handy link, Warjournal . It should spruce things up for some of us who did not pay enough attention in biology/nature classes

Keep the entries coming.

While the final judgement is in the hands of Kaboi, I personally don't think it matters whether the animal actually pertains to your name. For example, what has a chameleon got to do with Taobaybee? And does it matter? I won a sig contest a few months ago with a tongue ring image, and my name has nothing to do with jewelry or piercings; it just looked cool.

Your name doesn't have to be related to the animal. That would be impossible for some people. Just make whatever you want.

True. But if Kaboi decides that the animal has to be related to your name, that would give some an unfair advantage.

Me, for example.
