I've volunteered to use some of my Cthulhu reputation to sponsor a Christmas/holiday contest. You all have aced previous holiday questions, so I'm going to give you a bit more of a challenge: Draw me Krampus, the Krampus is a beast-like creature who punishes bad children at Christmas.
I'll judge the entries myself and award the one I like the most and award it a bounty of 500 reputation as the grand prize.
There are also four honourable mention categories, though they don't come with extra reputation:
Pure TeX. Only TeX may be used, no LaTeX, ConTeXt, Lua, etc. Extra credit if you use a really old version.
No fancy graphics packages; no
Asymptote, etc. The best Krampus you can using things not designed to draw things.
Technical achievement; This will be voted on by a committee of volunteers from respected communities members (as I'm not qualified to judge it) and will be awarded to the most impressive use of *TeX, regardless if it is the best looking.
Finally, the people's choice award will go to the most upvoted submission as of the close date.
I'm going to give this a tentative date of the 21st, but that may be subject to change if I'm in transit that day, or I can't set the bounty to run that long.
You have to draw the whole thing in some member of the TeX family; no using import graphics.
Be positive to others entries
The goal is to have fun, so don't try and weasel around any restrictions.
Obey Wheaton's Law
I reserve the right to add more honourable mentions for stuff I find cool (Best use of LaTeX3, best animated Krampus, etc)
(Feel free to give me feedback on this contest; I've never run one before, it just seemed like a lot of fun.)
