CHALLENGE: Happy End of Year...Thing

This week you are challenged - in the spirit of political correctness - to design your very own - secular holiday character (Think a Santa-like character, but without any religious connections).

Your character may be presented in any way you like; portrait, sprite, incorporated into a scene etc...

Colours - Unrestricted.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation -  Optional.

  • Only new pixels allowed.
  • Open to all members.
  • Posting WIPs in this thread or in new threads in the /forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=8'>WIP section is highly encouraged, but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART.


  • Every Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) the previous week's entries are judged.
  • Every week a new voting poll will be posted for previous week's entries.

  • Top three finishers will receive an award displayed in your PJ gallery profile for all to see and envy.

  I'd love to take a stab at it, but I'm lost for inspiration.    That's the appeal.  Secular Holiday??  DEoesn't anyone have any WIP to show?
