Rules and Guidelines

The contest is about giving your Avatar a perfect Steampunk style. Once you have customized and "steampunked" your avi, take some photos and submit to Koinup. Each participant can submit up to three photos.
First photo has to be a close-up of the avatar. Second photo has to be a full-body portrait. Third photo can include also backgrounds elements. This could help you to depict even further a steampunk style and mood.
