Canvas 17 is a pixel art (with enlarged pixels) Jack-o-lantern pumpkin.

Canvas 17 saw an influx of users from Russian image boards, causing wars between their artists and established artists, with many pieces of art disappearing and re-appearing throughout the canvas's lifetime.
At the height of the war, the server was DDoS'd in apparent retaliation over bans of users who used multiple accounts and the removal of a piece of art where the use of multiple accounts accounted for so many of the pixels, all of them were removed regardless of who placed them.
