Welcome to the rebooted spookifying thread, now with 93.78% more spookifying!
We're well into October now, and Halloween, whether or not you observe it, is approaching. October is a month focusing on all things Autumn like pumpkins, special hot beverages, and the general beauty of nature moving aside to let old man winter pass. It's also frequently associated with spooky things such as monsters, witches, and skeletons (noot!).
Some of you may remember years ago when I did the yearly spookifying thread in which SG forum users could request their profile picture to be "spookified" - In other words, edited to look spooky, scary, and (mostly!) gory. These threads were created in 2015, 2016, 2017... but then it became too much work and I skipped over 2018. This year, I've had two people ask me if I would do it again, and it sparked something within me and convinced me to give it a round this year.
I'm again joined this year by NinjaPopcorn (an actual artist) to provide me with assistance in spookifying!
Spookifying is the art of taking someone's profile picture, and turning it into a spooky horror show. There's no better way to put it.
To request a spookification of your profile picture, simply comment on this thread asking for it. If you are the chosen one™ you will momentarily receive a reply with an attached image - This is your spookification! Simply download the image, set it as your profile picture, and enjoy being extra spooky for the rest of October.
Now, with that said, you should know that expecting for a single guy to spookify every single request is asking a bit much. As spookifying is very challenging and time consuming, I will only be picking the best images first, then gradually work my way down to less desirable images to work with, as I run out of candidates for spookifying. This means that it doesn't matter too much in which order you've requested your spookification, since I'll pass you if your profile picture isn't easy to work with.
To give you a general idea of what profile pictures get the priority, here is a quick list.
Do keep in mind that this is just the general guidelines I use when doing these, so don't be afraid to request regardless of your profile picture!
And that's pretty much it! Begin spamming jbond with volunteer work! :D
This thread will be open until October 31st (hopefully)
Please remember to sync your account after switching profile picture!

omigosh, I still remember how you gone and done my 2018 christmas avatar real pretty (was a diff pic then).

Added an autumn flair to it with orange leaves :p
huhuhhuhu wonderful! XD I love it
I still have my Christmas version since last year :))
I would like to be spookified :D
this is awesome ty 💙
I don't need to be spookified... but don't you think this thread needs a giveaway? I think this thread needs a giveaway!
thanks look like a good game :)
Cheers, let me know if you want this added to the OP for visibility!
I'm okay either way, I'll leave that up to you! :D
Amazing topic, I would also like to be spookified if possible!
If not, great topic anyway!
Sounds cool. I'm in.
My avatar is a rotated interrobang, produced in the same style as the Spanish ¿ and ¡ question/exclamation openers, but that is probably way too abstract; still, I've often been told that it's a pregnant woman, which might work a lot better as a starting concept for a possible spookification. If it's still too hard, no worries; I'll still have my fun seeing others' avatars! ;)
I tried ._.
Nice! I like it. Thank you so much! :D
I think that it looks great, can't be easy to spookify a punctuation ;)
You guys are both awesome for doing this!
Heh, thanks a lot!

Oh I loved your spookifications in the previous years! I was about to skip it, thinking I still have the spookified versions of my pics saved but then I remembered I have a new profile picture. Would love to see what you can come up with for my current one! :)

Omg that's scary as hell, good job! I guess I'll be spooking everyone on my friends list this month (not to mention spooking myself every time I see my profile pic).

That is very spooky indeed. Thank you!
I would like to take part, but i am afraid that my picture cant be spookified ;)

WOW that's one scary Ampelmann! Thank you!
But if John Steed is lovely... not like that Maxwell Smart!
Could you make it terrifyingly charming?
I'm getting ahead of work and I panic little by little
Clear look, frank smile, polite gesture ... I like it!! XD
Could you do my avatar?
Thanks for the work :)
I love it <3
Thank you very much! :)
And Happy Cake Day! :)
You're welcome! And thanks, that's a lovely Halloween cake :3
Omg, this is so awesome! :D Could you do my avatar, please?
Thank you so much! I love it :D
P/S: Had to switch back to my old avatar because I'm scaring the devs away. My Steam is unfortunately linked to several sites that I use for my... uh... hobby where I review games. Sorry! >.<
Great work! I wish I was half as good as you are at this.
Thanks! Is this a request?
Sure, I'd appreciate it, if you don't mind.
Don't forget to change your own avatar!
