So you may or may not have noticed my Crocodile Seaman avatar that I'm currently using. Either way, if you do happen to take a gander at it, you'll notice that it's rather fugly with its horrid whitish border around it. Problem is that the pic that Gobb gave me for it had a solid white background and it looked like poo against Paradox's black background. So I tried (unsuccessfully) to make the croc's background transparent using the extent of my entire knowledge of photo-editing skills.
Anyway, back to why this is in the Contests & Events board:
I am offering a Token of Appreciation to the first person that can hit me with some good Crocodile Seaman. Take the original jpeg (shown below), change the background transparent, save it in a size/format that is acceptable to Paradox's avatar restrictions, and, lastly, and most importantly
, if it looks really good against the background in Paradox I will give the editor a Token of Appreciation.
And I'll throw in a bonus with
the ToA if the winner can work a not-at-all-magic marker and/or SCYTHE OF DOOOOOOM seamlessly
into the image.
All honest, legitimate attempts that DO NOT meet my high standards and expectations will receive a Certificate of Gratitude.
Easy money, right?
Get to work!*Edited for spelling correction.
