 Oh man... i just did an alien dog two weeks ago!

Oh, I'd like so much to participate in this one, but this week I'm so busy! =(

 That should be an established rule! It would prevent a lot of confusion.

MikauKahn (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/14/2013 04:20

Thank you, that's a very good way to rationalize what would be allowed.

Shiba and shitty are incompatible words c: 

Ashkin (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 2/13/2013 23:06

I'd say the best rule would be 'If you can't adequately define it in the word "dog", it's not covered by the rules.' For example, a stuffed dog can be gestured to and called a dog, while a dog-man would not be so easy to describe as such... Unless it was a dog-man in a fictional universe where 'dog' is a slur...

MikauKahn (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/13/2013 04:58

 I figured as much.

Reo (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 2/12/2013 23:14

I'd stay clear of dog persons. That's bending the rules a bit much.

MikauKahn (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/12/2013 20:26


Would a dog-person be permitted? Such as anthro, kemonomimi, ect?

MikauKahn (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/12/2013 20:25

 Sweet beans. Time to try and pull out all the cute stops.


Puppy dog eyes x20, here I come.

 It's pretty hard to get disqualified from a challenge, you can usually interpret them pretty loosely. It says nothing about alive, just "dog". Granted it has to be moving around considering it's an animation, but I think it could look however you want. 

MikauKahn (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/12/2013 14:35

 Question, must the dog be a living, breathing dog? 

For example, are plushie dogs acceptable?

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/12/2013 13:55

More inspiration

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/12/2013 09:00

Hey! You're right, I didn't even notice it !

We're pixeling dog sprites doing stuff and entering them in a challenge where in the end people are awarded ribbons. So what you're saying is.... This is a virtual dog show! 

CrimsonPixel (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/11/2013 08:30

I must enter this one!

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 2/11/2013 08:24

 *froths at mouth* yeeeeessss

kaze19th (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 2/11/2013 06:51

A good  motivation to try (at least) the animation, hope I'll find some idea to enter...

Nevercreature (Level 9 Vice President) @ 2/11/2013 04:39

Animation challenge!! Yeaaah! I would like to enter...

Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) @ 2/11/2013 04:29

Cry "Pixel!" and let slip the dogs of war!
