2nd Prize USD300

Andrew C. E. Dent

His Bullets collection is able to replace most of the bullets in the actual "Bullets" gallery. With alpha transparency and much higher resolution they look really "smooth" compared to the bullets used by now. It's a set of different colored bullets and even more black/white bullets for high contrast themes (accessibility).

Sale.otg uses text fields to enter old and new prices which are then formatted automatically.

5th Prize USD200
