Pop Quiz: Easter egg

Get ready for your pop quiz, kids! In honor of the big Christian holiday tomorrow, your one-day quick-fire challenge is:

Make an awesome Easter egg in HM3!

To make this easier, I've just added two new items to Background-Shapes, one a big egg-shaped hole and one an actual egg shape. So you can put together whatever image you like, load the egg-hole on top of it, and Bob's your uncle!

You only get one entry -- that's right, just one! So make it your best.

Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular contest, but instead of a whole week I'll announce the winner either tonight or first thing in the morning.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the UGO Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his "Bayou Belle" character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). If you see "preview" or "rotate" somewhere in the link you're probably doing it wrong.

Good luck!

  12. OK this is just weird that you would pick this just now, just because of this one I did just last night.
    I was looking at the Hunky Jesus contestants from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (gay drag queens dressed as nuns for fun and fundraising) and thought how many of the hunky Jesi would make great satyrs and I did this … my homage to Ostara and Easter.

    I was going to call it “Just bcause you CAN do it, doesn’t mean you SHOULD”
    my wife quoted “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” and “Sordid Lives” saying “Get off the cross, somebody needs the wood!”

    Note there is an egg for the colors of the rainbow.

    PROBABLY OFFENSIVE TO DEVOUT CHRISTIANS … or at least for those with little or no sense of humor.

  15. Forget Easter Eggs, if you want to make things really interesting for me, invite me on a Faberge’ Egg hunt.

    gendonesia: uhm, original easter egg http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii180/gendonesiaraya/heroes/gendonesia-easteregg.jpg

    That’s brilliant! I love the shading and attention to detail.

  18. When I saw all the entries so far, I realised that I should crack on with my entry (I apologise for that terrible pun):

  19. PROBABLY OFFENSIVE TO DEVOUT CHRISTIANS

    Yeah…there’s no “probably” about it.

  20. John: Yeah…there’s no “probably” about it.

    Even without the “devout” OR the “Christian” 🙂

    If you believe in an all-powerful being, wouldn’t it stand to reason that said being, having everything, would possess a sense of humor? Wouldn’t much of what happens under this omnipotent being’s aegis PROVE it?
