    To be honest this contest is great IMO. I've done backpack design several times in the past. The beauty of it is that items can be placed in specific positions in the backpack, as opposed to where they land when sitting on the floor.

    I merely put UO:F in the design to help the server advertise as it's already accumulated a fair view count, and to thwart anyone who would say that I, great hanes, could not have designed such a beautiful image by myself. Notice also how my coins are evenly spaced apart :) something I enjoyed doing very much.

    This contest makes available the backpack to be viewed by as many players as would be exposed to the design if it were in your house. At the risk of sounding like an ass-sucker I would like to extend my gratitude to @drinn for this genius event idea.

    @Guybrush Threepwood not sure if you have any trash tokens but I was going to suggest a mix of them and platinum before you changed your design to eliviate the 125 item maximum dillema. I have 100 or so, holla at me if you need any.

    As for the other contenders in this, I would say that I feel this competition will be best judged by choosing the design which most absorbs the viewer and brings them deeper into the scene. Any imperfections in the designs or slights that would make you feel less absorbed into the scene are definitely a shame.

    Note that the beauty of this is how you are able to make almost every pixel exactly as you want it, given a little ingenuity. I am glad to see more and more designs added to this, and I personally have enjoyed the themes and creativity of each one, down to the last pixel. Keep going with it! There's still plenty of time for touch-ups before the contest ends.

    An old gravestone marks the resting place of a long-forgotten warrior, whose grave now overlooks the lands he once traveled.

    Sorry I hurt your feeling qt, but.... yeah.

    Yours is the only one to come even remotely close tho imo, if it makes you feel better.

    You're all way more creative than me, I wouldn't even attempt to make one, never was the craft/creative type. I was always better at tearing up, lol.

    I think all these designs rule. The fact that the people here have come up with these things for a design contest that is a lot harder to do then it looks is pretty awesome.

    It attacked at twilight, when the day was waning and the night waxing. Spewing silver fire at the ship it's molten breathe quickly ignited the powder stores. The explosion threw the first mate clear of the ship as he uttered curses to his gods at the ill fortune. The water did little to stop the heat searing flesh from bone. In the unnatural magic of the witching hour, his bones cursed by his own words animated in a non-life.

    As he emerged on the bloody coast, sword gripped in hand, all good was forgotten. Madness in death had awoken.
    He was Storm Born - the undead pirate.

    Had a lot of fun - and forced me to empty my bank box - lol

    *edit* Added zoomed in version - pixelated but you can see the ship better.
    *edit2* changed character it was on. It kept auto stacking my coins - making me redo the explosion

    The theme is a re-enactment of the pker to the pked.

    I was going to do an EQMS themed backpack, but i couldn't fit '10 dicks' into the backpack.

    Better way if you use windows 8/10 is win key + prtscr. Your screen dims for a second and it saves the shot to your pictures folder, no need to past into paint and save.
