By that, I hope you're implying that you are a woman...
I'm getting a little fed up with GPU's that have to arrive "Descretely wrapped" :mrgreen:

Oh, and any chance of a png/svg copy of the LR logo?
I think since it is a custom run, it deserves to be featured.

If I can use a copy of that, I'll have my first design up tomorrow \:D/

This looks like fun! I just had a quick question about the use of the logos. I noticed in the zip file that there are an assortment of AMD logos (black, white, Rgb, etc).
Can we colour these up to match our designs or are we restricted by each logo we use? I'm not talking about altering the logo itself - just the colours.

Looks like a great comp! I think i just spent about 4 hours working on mine. Question: Can we submit multiple, and do we just paste a link into this forum to get it in the running?
Also is it area restricted or will the winner just pay extra postage if they are not in the area?

Okay, what the heck. I guess I'll be the first to post.

I wasn't sure about backgrounds and stuff, since there was no mention so I did it against a black background.

I still have the original file with all the bracketing and fan cover indicators. Just thought I'd fancy it up a little to post here. ;)

EDIT: I added back the ATI logo which I had missed when I first posted.

EDIT #2: I flipped the image over to go with the new directions.

Sort of Christmassy, but it was originally intended to just be sort of 'Cold' Themed.
Anyway, there it is.

*EDIT* PICTURE HAS BEEN UPDATED, PREVIEW IS NOT THE SAME AS FINAL, FULL RESOLUTION PICTURE, SEE LINK FOR FINAL PICTURE.

Oh dear. It seems that my pic has been chopped because I quoted colordood. Please have a look at the link to see the full image.

I'm not concerned with the background of your submissions as it won't be used for the actual graphics and won't be judged.

If you'd like to submit low-resolution images here in the forums that is fine, but please have a high-res image made as well that you can send us if you win the grand prize.

As for the question about use of AMD logos feel free to tweak them as needed and if they don't like something I'm sure they will let us know quickly.

The first few submissions look amazing!

Yeah what I've got cooking isn't like those so far. Will be late next week (earliest) before I post mine up. To make my life easier I'm bumming a Intuos tablet from a co-worker. Still working on my prelem sketches anyway.

Makes me feel nervous with statements like 'Pre-lim Sketches"...
