It's almost DECEMBER?! How did that happen so fast? Anywho, we all know what that means! It's the most wonderful time of the year, as we will be launching the Winter Event, patiently waiting for the first snowflakes to fall, and getting all cozy with the cooler weather!

A couple of important deadlines are approaching. We highlight those as well as a couple of new community events and contests. We have a lot of cool submissions in our "Other Highlights" section including some castles, terrain and skins. This week's interview is also included... and features some adorable pixel art! We hope everyone has a great weekend!



OFFICIAL EVENTS AND CONTESTS

It's time to get CRAFTY! Welcome to a friendly papercraft photography competition!

COMMUNITY
EVENTS AND CONTESTS




A friendly reminder to those that are new to hosting events. If you want your event or contest featured, as well as added to the Community Event Calendar, please comment on the Calendar thread with the name of your contest, a link to your contest, and the deadline.

Making a banner, like canday's Skinning Secret Santa Event banner below, is beneficial in several ways. Banners are eye-catching! You can add it to your forum thread, put it in a wall post, and it might even be featured on the pop reel. Eye-catching means more people will see your contest, which means more people will participate! We encourage you to check out this tutorial by DinowCookie and take a stab at creating your own banner!


NEW!
canday is hosting a Skinning Secret Santa event! To join the event, you must comment on the thread with a description/image for your secret Santa to make a skin of!

Sign ups end: December 1st
Skins due: December 25th

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS





PALETTE PRACTICE
Do you ever revisit old submissions and get inspired to challenge yourself to improve upon your skills? This week, Obscurum did just that! Revisiting their skin The Angel Palette from 5 years ago, they decided to use the same palette and redesign the skin. Obscurum describes how they feel about the latest redesign:

"There are certain things about the new version that are a bit iffy to me as well. The head is a bit flat in certain places, and the cape needs a bit more work, but It'll leave it at that for now. Designs also leaning towards a little basic for me. Colors are a bit messy and muddy in certain places. Did I mention the shoes? Oh god. Maybe I'll attempt this palette for a third time in the future, but i' rather unlikely."

We love the new design! We find it interesting that both of these skins use the same palette because they're so different from each other!

FIESTY FISH
Just when we thought we've seen a skin of everything, Campestral pulls through with this interesting skin titled "Robot Fish". Upon further investigation, we discovered that this isn't the first robot fish skin; in fact, this is an HD version of a skin inspired by egovultus83's fish-robot from two years ago (see below).

CAPTIVATING CASTLE
Gamefruitpulp's PMC Showcases have returned with the showcase of Geet_Builds' Castle in a Valley! This detailed masterpiece combines natural beauty with the beauty of castle design!

The castle overlooks a river in the middle of a valley. The map features another tower that can be accessed by crossing a bridge over the river. A walkway lined by statues. Inside the castle is a throne room, complete with chandeliers, a gallery, and fancy floor designs!

A beautiful showcase video for a beautiful build, which you can download and explore for yourself!

MEDIEVAL MARVEL
One of the top maps this week is by browniescooter and features a massive medieval city titled "City of Estral". The city is protected by a stone wall, with a castle at its center. The build is complete with a port, ships, markets, and several quaint homes.

Placed on an island with no land in the distance, this city has an isolated but cozy feel. Just beware of intruders!

This map is FREE to download! Claim the castle and become king or queen, or roam the cobble streets and nestle into your very own quiet abode.!


TERRAIN
This week we saw several terrain submissions, all of them very unique with different biomes and elements! The creators of these maps were generous enough to provide PMC with a free download as well. Here are four of our favorite Terrain submissions this week!
