FAQ
Darkfur wrote:I have a suggestion for another theme-
Tundra (or very cold areas.)
I have a few questions;

So will this contest begin on the 1st of December after the voting has been completed? Considering there is [roughly] 9 days left until December it would be a good chance for users to vote and make suggestions.
- are backgrounds required in the picture? Or can we do transparency as well ?
- Is the winner decided via poll or will you decide?
- Is there a certain limit to the amount of entries you can enter?
- I know you said it doesn't have to have realistic colorings. But will things such as - accessories, extra hair, unusual colors like bright pink [e.g. - sparkle dogs] be allowed then?
- Is there a certain limit to the size of the picture? (Such as no bigger than like perhaps 1000x1000 pixels.)
- Can pictures be animated?
- Can pictures be 3D sculptures?
- As well do they have to be drawn on paper or can you use your PC and software such as paint?

I think that is all my questions for now. Thanks Smile

I have a few questions;

Alright the theme is Desert with the PupFish !
Due date Jan 1st !
Here is some info about the PupFish the rest you have look up etc.
Description

The Desert Pupfish is a small, silvery-colored fish with 6 to 9 dark bands on its sides. This tiny fish grows to a full average length of only 2.5 inches. Pupfish develop quickly, sometimes reaching full maturity within 2 to 3 months. Although their average life span is 6 to 9 months, some survive more than one year.

Pupfish have a short, scaled head with an upturned mouth. The anal and dorsal fins are rounded with the dorsal sometimes exhibiting a dark blotch. The caudal fin is convex at the rear.

Pupfish feed on brown and green algae. During winter months, when the water is cold, they become dormant, burrowing in the muddy bottom of their habitat.

As spring approaches and the water warms, Pupfish become very active and begin their mating ritual. The breeding males become iridescent blue in color and defend their territory, chasing away all other fish except females that are ready to spawn. Spawning starts towards the end of February and continues through summer.

As temperatures become extreme toward summer, evaporation dries up most pools and streams, resulting in the death of most Pupfish. A few survive in the small number of pools, streams and springs that do not dry up completely.

The various species of Pupfish serve as evidence that a series of prehistoric desert lakes were once interconnected. This genus speciated when these Pleistocene lakes evaporated around 10,000 years ago, isolating different groups from each other. Among the 13 know species of Pupfish, C. macularius and C. diabolis (the Desert Hole Pupfish) are the most well known.

Several species of the Pupfish are endangered by desert development and the introduction of exotic fish species into their habitat. Pupfish are protected at various locations in Death Valley National Park
, including Saratoga Springs, Salt Creek and a totally distinct portion of the park located in Nevada called Devil's Hole. Pupfish can also be seen at California's Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
