*Actually imageshack ruined the colors. The grass is definately not that green, for example. Do anyone know of a trusty place to upload my file to? **It really pisses me off since I worked so hard just to have my colors changed by some mechanical bureaucracy.

ive always loved how traditional hand drawn art can be improved by the machine; there are limitations to how far exclusive CG and exclusive hand done art can produce
ive spent over a week watercoloring and photoshopping to get this nice whirlpool effect

edit: due to photobucket's color distortion, i have a re-submission with the (closest) correct colors which appears above

the link below is the original submission with the wrong colors
http://i390.photobucket.com/albums/oo34 ... j8-2rs.jpg
i also have higher res and correct color master copies which i will be willing to send by request

This isn't a corporate contest... so why are so many people recycling corporate images designed for public consumption, rather than being original and trying to please themselves? I mean, this IS potentially a graphics card that only you will use, right? Come on, open your minds, express yourselves.

Props to all of you who did your own work. :drinkers:

Tonight at midnight, so the folks at AMD can start looking through the art during work... some people get paid to have fun ;)
It looks like 12:00 last night was the deadline... :shock:

well my submission hasnt appeared on the submissions page yet and i consider myself to be on-time, because that rule is so poorly worded that it can indicate the contest ends on the 22nd at 11:59pm or the 22nd at 12:00am

and with 5 submissions posted past the 12am mark,just because the rule is so vague, i believe it is justified that those submissions should be added. it would really be shooting down the effort those people have made

Aptosis said that at 4am, (about 12-13 hours ago) on the 22nd, so the deadline is 12 am tonight right?
