Welcome back to PXL! It is been a very long time without the excitement of contests and finally we start again! So show us, what you did in this time. This contest is open, there is no theme, just show us the great images you made in the meantime or make a new one!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

George55: Is this the only contest we will have for now...? Just logged in again. Nice to see people coming back. ( 5 years and 929 days ago )
Lelaina: There was just another one posted, George. For now we will have 2 PS contests running. Each of them for two weeks (except for the other active one right now, which will run for 3 weeks).
Each week one will start and will run for 2 weeks. We start slowly and still can raise the number of contests later, if the interest is there
And welcome back!!! ( 5 years and 929 days ago )

Contest Moderator: Considering, that the theme is asking for entries you made in the time PXL was gone, it's understandable, if you didn't save the source links. So as an exception for this one contest, it is ok, if you can't post all source links you've used. Just show us your great entries! ( 5 years and 928 days ago )

Hi everybody! ( 5 years and 927 days ago )
artgirl1935: Welcome back! What a nice surprise!! I never knew you could miss folks that you had never really met. In the time that has passed I have had two new hips and turned 80!!! But I look forward to being part of the new Pxleyes! A question about an entry - I have a CD cover which I did for some of my music, but it has my name and photo on it. Is this a problem? I could blank out my name. ( 5 years and 927 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Artgirl, because it is you AND you have 2 new hips AND you must be our oldest member it is OK if you post it. Just blank out your name. Welcome back to PXL! ( 5 years and 927 days ago )
TorDoni: Will you allow something that was in another site's contest, this one time? ( 5 years and 927 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @TorDoni-Yes it's okay to use images that may have been on other sites for this particular contest. We're more concerned about seeing what everyone's been doing and how they're developing their skills and talent. We want people to be inspired by what they see and that they will want to participate in future contests. So let's see what you've got! ( 5 years and 927 days ago )
Drivenslush: Artgirl got new hips and I got a new heart (Pig Valve) Dos were relieved I haven't started to oink yet.

Harve Bennett: Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive.

Oscar Goldman: Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better... stronger... faster.
Great to see you guys.
Beep boop bleep! Oink! ( 5 years and 925 days ago )
Drivenslush: *Docs not Dos ( 5 years and 925 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Just a reminder! Because of the nature of this contest it's alright if you don't have source links or the elements to create a step by step. You can even post entries that you've shown on other sites.
Future contests will still require following the guidelines as usual. If you have any questions or need help you can contact a moderator for assistance. We want to help make your experience in these contests fun and even educational! ( 5 years and 925 days ago )

This image is created from almost completely from my own stock and drawing. I did use a texture by Marqoni - http://fav.me/d4allfs but everything else was from my own photographs and digital drawing. See SBS for in depth and original photo etc. (5 years and 914 days ago)

Finally! I'm SO happy to be back! *do a happy dance*

This entry shows (in the windows) my sad time without PXL...
Saying goodbye, feeling sad, having too much time, feeling absolutely no creativity anymore and not knowing, what to do and where to go...
But luckily there was a magic key (called MrMonty) who opened PXL again!
