I remade this poll because iamflip wanted to have the polls auto-close.

Orginal post:

Alrighty... here's the entries that have made it into this MT Holiday Wallpaper Contest:
Futuristic Grunge Christmas by Nautilus
A Windian Christmas by MąriaCølette
Mapletip Christmas. by Jamie.
...Santa? by Magical Moses
Autumn Holidays by ZarakiKenpachi
A Christmas Scene by Sync
Chibi~! MERRY CHRISTMAS by Stellar
A Christmas Night by HydraLisk
Gentle's Gift by a gentle breeze
The holy tree by PurpleMadness
No name by Genki

Now... before you go vote and comment and stuff, keep these few things in mind...
  • In case you've forgotten about the prizes that are at stake, click here.
  • The Paint and the Pencil Badge prize package is: 1,000 Forum Mesos, anything from the Cash Shop that's worth 1,000 NX or below*, and a complimentary Specialty Badge.
  • To participants, please do not vote on your own submission.
  • Obviously, one vote per person. Do not use multiple accounts to vote or I'll see to it that you are banned from MT entirely.
  • Comments like who you voted for and why are encouraged.
  • This poll will last from now to Monday the 17th. The results will be posted the next day.
  • The winner will be determined by who gets the most votes by Monday. Runner-ups and badge winners will follow.
  • Only one person is entitled to one prize package. Should the person win more than one, he/she will only receive the package that carries more weight. For example, suppose I win 1st and the Paint badge. Since the 1st place prize package has more stuff than the Paint badge, I'll only receive the 1st place prize package, while the second best person in the Paint badge poll get the Paint badge prize package.
  • Again, regardless of who is the winner, all wallpapers + my exclusive MT Holiday Wallpaper '07 will be put together into a <!- extension removed [1] -> file for all of you to DL and enjoy. mush1a.gif

What are you waiting for? Start voting now! This poll will self-destruct close on Monday the 17th.


The following are my votes:

Best overall: A Christmas Night by HydraLisk. I like the overall picture and it's very well done in my opinion. The lighting effects for the tree were especially pretty.
Best for Paint: A Windian Christmas by MariaColette. It has a warm Christmas feeling and the ribbon makes the package all the better.
Best for non-MS sprites: Santa? by Magical Moses. What I liked about this one was the humor used in making the wallpaper, and with it comes a lesson that all Maple Story players should learn to appreciate during this Christmas.
Nothing to see here. Move along now.

Same here, for some reason I find happyville music more soothing and happy than normal christmas music [/you know you play maple too much when]
I already am using one of these papers as a background =)

Chibi~! MERRY CHRISTMAS wins in my eyes. Also, I don't mean to moan again, but it's kind of unfair to class Paint, the program, in the same category as paint.net. Because paint.net has waaay more features. Not to mention smoother brushes.

Unfortunately, blame that on Photobucket. I had to save all of the wallpapers and put them there for fair reasons, and apparently it resized them.

You can still view the old thread with had the original links to the wallpapers, and of course the <!- extension removed [1] -> file package will have the wallpapers' sizes intact.

Eeeh. It works fine with me. No resizing was done when I saved one of the pictures and uploaded it.

Well, Here's my votes.

Best Overall: HyrdraLisk's "A Christmas Night". Although it reads "Happy Holidays" (something I am personally against), It is a beautiful, simple wallpaper (which is what a wallpaper should be, IMO)

Best Paint: I really don't think Paint.Net should count, it's pretty much a nerfed photoshop, so I voted MariaCollete's "A Windian Christmas". It's an amazing MSpaint wallpaper, and Kudos to her.

On the note of this, I do believe Sync's "A Christmas Scene" was done in paint, although I could be mistaken.

Best Pencil: Genki's "No Name". The maple references are very limited, but it's an amazing work of art nonetheless. The text is a bit too prominent though, otherwise it would have won best overall for me.

Hhhmmmm pretend that the person has metrosexual hair.

That is pretty much the only thing maplestory-enough I am willing to draw.

Lol.

edit: If I didn't make the text prominent there would be no mapletip!ness to it all.

But now I kind of wish I saved the drawing for the sw contest since the theme is more general. :[
