This contest is just for fun ;) There are no prizes this time. If you want to sponsor something please feel free to contact our team: team[at]gimpusers[dot]com
What you see above is a totally new species first discovered in the wild alps of Austria in Europe! It’s name is “the flying Cobrantula” a frightening mix of a cobra, a tarantula and an eagle ;)
The new topic of our current contest is to create such a fictional species by yourself using GIMP! Use at least two images to make a new animal. You’re not forced to only merge two or more animals – you can also create new skins for existing animals. Try a web search to get more inspiration – there are plenty of creations already! The goal is just to have a funny or scary new type on animal in the end. Have fun ;)
- Use at least two photos of existing animals
- You can also use new “surfaces” to create a new skin look
- In the final image please also show all of the images you used (see my example above)
