    ───── ❝ Christmas DP 2021 ❞ ─────

    It is that time of year again! YAY!
    Christmas 2021 is just around the corner and we have a surprise in store for you.
    Myself and 52Phenomenon have decided to collaborate on a new idea for you all.

    As you can probably tell by the title of this thread, we are giving you all the chance to have a custom head featured in the Drop Party. This thread will give the community a chance to feel more involved in the DP's and events.
    As you may or may not know, I designed the Zombie Crew for Halloween 2021. I am not the most amazing head designer so decided to pass it on to you all this time round ;)

    This competition is open to Staff and Players and the winner will be shortlisted anonymously by myself, 52Phenomenon (Events Manager), rest of the team and Noobcrew.

    Entries must be submitted 1 week before the DP (date to be confirmed) so we have enough to prep the Head Value ID.

    The idea and rules are simple but if you are interested keep listening.

    ━━━━━━━☟━━━━━━━

    Rules:
    1. You can have as many entries as you like
    2. This is open to staff and players
    3. The heads can be anything but MUST be Christmas themed
    4. All entries must be appropriate and within the server rules
    (any entries that are inappropriate will be deleted)
    5. Your head must NOT be a copy from existing heads but these can be used as inspiration
    6. Please do NOT copy other entries.

    You must submit your entries following the specific format below.

    Format:
    Your in-game name:
    The name of the head:
    A brief description of the head:
    A screenshot of the head:
    Classic/Slim skin:
    Please also attach the download file image when you submit.
    However, when you do PLEASE hide the screenshot so no one can download the file to copy your work. You can hide the screenshot of the skin if you'd like to.
    Staff will be able to see the message that is hidden.

    This can be done by doing 'Hide Image /Hide'


    Tutorials
    I am sure a lot of you are way more pro than I am at this so you may have better sites / methods than I do however I am going to talk through the sites I use and how I do it.
    I am no expert at this so please share sites you use with each other or any tips/tricks you may have.

    The site I use the most for my heads is 'Skindex'
    There are a few good locations for skins/heads on here but the tab you will need for this is 'Editor'
    upload_2021-11-7_16-38-34.png

    As you can see this is the 4th one along.

    When in the Editor menu, you will see 3 options at the bottom:
    upload_2021-11-7_16-39-47.png
    Upload to skindex = irrelevant for this
    Download = This is the image you will need to hide in your entry
    Upload from computer = Let's you edit pre existing skins you have downloaded.

    The site is pretty easy to navigate however I will highlight each tool and their use.


    Main tools
    Pencil:
    This is used to draw on the image in whatever colour you have set on the RGB wheel.
    Eraser: This will erase square by square what you have drawn.
    Painting: This will auto gradient the colour you are using and is used in the same was as the pencil. You can use this to avoid block colour.
    Colour picker: This is use to select a colour already existing on the skin.
    Paint bucket: This will automatically fill the area you click (for example: face)
    Arrows: Undo and Redo

    Important things to note when in the editor: You can select 'Body' and 'Outer layer' to decide where you want to draw.
    Body is the direct skin and outer layer is the parts to the skin which you can turn on and off in your Minecraft skin settings. I tend to use Outer Layer just for more detail.
    upload_2021-11-7_16-45-55.png

    If you have any questions / issues when creating the Head please let me know.
    You do not have to decorate the whole skin - ONLY the head.
    No extra points will be given for those who design the rest of the skin as we are only focussed on the head.

    Once your design is completed, you will need to click 'Download'
    upload_2021-11-7_16-49-30.png
    Then attach this in your entry with the hide command shown in my example.

    Prizes
    1. The winning head will be dropped at the DP
    2. The winner will get a special announcement at the DP
    3. Every entry will have a feature in the upcoming DP warp.

    I really hope this thread has laid itself out how I hoped (lol) and it makes sense to you all.
    Apologies in advance if I have just rambled for the past 15 paragraphs.

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

    Good luck to all and Merry (nearly) Christmas!! <3
    Any issues/questions PLEASE let us know!!
