A new year is incoming! And we all love a new start, and who better to get a brand new look than our beloved sorting hat!

Soo, the wonderful Cyndi and Emzies have had a wonderful idea for a graphics competition! We're going to ask HNZ members to submit their take on a new avatar design for the sorting hat! The winning submission will be adopted by the sarky sorter, and the creator will gain bragging rights as the person who dresses Hogwarts' savviest headwear.

For those of you new to HNZ, the avatars are the icons which appear in the sidebar above a user's details, and are often very indicative of a characters personality or ~vibe~

You will have one week to submit your version of the avatar, and then voting will take place. There are a couple of rules, so bear these in mind.

The Rules:

  • Site rules apply
  • It must be an original work (your own).
  • Please do not place a copyright tag ("Created by ----") in your image.
  • As per the board rules, the image must not exceed a file size of 100kb
  • You must post your submission in this thread.
  • You may submit more than one entry. (Though only one will win!)
  • All qualified entries will be put into a poll to be voted on and the winner chosen by the members of this site.
And sin sin! (That is Irish for "That's that, and is pronounced "shin shin," :correct: ) Get creating all you wonderful people, I can't wait to see your submissions!

I sketched a little drawing quickly this morning to contribute. I'm still considering what sort of background would fit... (I don't know how to resize an image, as it's not the same as it used to be on a forum, so I put it in a spoiler. Sorry! It does fit with the parameters for the icon even if it's big.)

Here's my entry!! Ended up taking inspiration from the hat in the hnz emotes, because when this drawing/render?? (I'm not sure what to call it) was brown it sort of looked like an angry poop emoji =))

Are things like Hogwarts crests allowed, or only your own drawings?

EDIT: Because I waited to ask this while I was already working on things :p I made two different versions of my two ideas.
