HOW TO PARTY IN DEVIANT STYLE
- Download the template to the right and color it with any combination of solid colors using the paint bucket tool in your favorite image editing software (Photoshop, MS Paint, GIMP, and so on). Remember, the contest is in honor of our 9th birthday celebration, so create something that reflects partying with Fella and deviantART.
- Feel free to rotate the canvas in any direction you'd like to better suit your creativity (90º, 180º, 270º, etc.).
- Use solid colors only. No shading, texturing, or gradients.
- You must only use 1 template in each entry. You cannot join templates together.
