  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lott of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance”
    between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

  2. First attempt at 2D & dropbox :/ Hope this works, if not HAPPY HALLOWEEN! https://www.dropbox.com/sc/1ol05v109kn3uyr/Rd3NMpRUMK

  3. I’ve got to say shelfcleaner has the best submission, but at the same time its a completely different league from the rest of us and I’m sure that would be the concession among us. Not to discredit or oust the submission at all. its wonderful and I could only dream of accomplishing such a feat. so for second I’d have to say… mummie with her first submission (since you’re only allowed one) I really like what was done. orange is my favorite color and I think it was the most creative use of elements. next on the list from the top would be d@wn. I love the cat, its beautiful.

  4. Submission from Addicts reader Platypusguitar https://www.dropbox.com/s/kem0ey8lxp61irx/image%20%283%29.jpg

    If anyone else is having trouble submitting your 2D designs before the contest is over send us an email at TSTOAddicts@gmail.com and we’ll try to help you post it.

  5. Righty oh, here’s my entry http://imgur.com/VIPpo8N

    I so hope it is anyways!

    And here is my other attempt

    These are my first two attempts at 2d.

  6. I’m having trouble using any of the photo drop box type things on my phone to submit my entry…help it is prob user error

    • Have you clicked on the little arrow tab to the right of the image file in your dropbox? Once you click on that you should see the share option (to the left in the new box that appears once you click on the arrow). Once you tap on the share button a new box will appear, you’ll want to tap the copy link option. Once you’ve tapped copy link it will automatically be saved to your phones clipboard. So then you just need to paste it to the spooky 2D page comment section. Let me know if you’ve already tried all of those options and are still having difficulty. But I do hope this helps, we’re looking forward to seeing your entry! 🙂

  7. My first 2D. Not the best out there but I’m happy with it 🙂

    • Don’t doubt yourself. I keep saying it, but you should’ve seen my earlier works as I was getting used to it. I hope ANYONE looking at this gives it a go. It’s so fun. So addicting. Have fun, be creative, and keep sending us your pics 🙂

  8. Everyone is having so much fun, I thought I’d post mine.

  9. Here’s my entry, FrankenBart!
