I can guess. It was 3 layers, 2 had transparency. He copied the pic of the background, put it in the back, then a pick of the emperor, put it in the middle, then finally tree, put it on top. And he moved the emperor's layer.

All graphics used were made by me.

Didn't use this ornament. Looked too much like GlaDOS.

Your just about right. I created 3 layers. The first one had the picture, the second part of the emperor and part of the christmas tree I had copied from the first layer. I then made a new image of the same dimensions. Finally I move the emperor in each frame and do Copy Visible.

Can we change our avatar after we've posted it but before the competition ends? Because I've not gotta christmas tree get but I'd like to take a photo of that and use it instead of one I found on google images. Also, can we ourselves be in it? Darth Vader randomly trying to steal christmas decoration/toaster and me hitting him on the head with a club!

My entry :) . It was bigger, but I had to scale it down a lot.

Offtopic: Hehe, I'm half expecting a Holiday smilie to be in the smilie-bank somewhere :funny2: .

EDIT: Updated version, just changed the picture. That ^ is the real one, unless I find something wrong with it.
