Lightbulb Custom Design Contest

If you are interested in graphic design, or want to get your Linux Flavor advertisement out there, here is an opportunity...

Digital Art Contest!!!
Hello Community,
I am putting together a contest for a great guy I met a couple months ago. He is an airbrush artist that wants to get his name out there. So I have come up with a contest for my favorite communities.
Contest Baseline:
The contest will run for 3 weeks, at the end of the 3rd week I will review all submissions with the air brush artist Adam Tash, and I will be asking Mr Biotech his advice as well , a digital artist I revere. The selected art will then be painted on my car and all images will be posted back to the sites where the contest is run.
1: No profanity
2: Nothing nasty or gruesome
3: The Airbrush URL must be incorporated
4: The Vehicle is a Hyundai Sonata 2003, currently white
Sites Contest Hosted On:
My Interests, for Design Ideas:
– My favorite colors are Blue, Red, and Electric Green --
1: I am a strong Christian
2: I have a family, and family is incredibly important to me
3: I love computers and graphic design, “Techo Geek”
4: I am a total Linux Geek (Favorites) Mint, and Ubuntu
5: Favorite movies Transformers, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings
6: I love designs that incorporate cybernetics, organics, and circuitry – Futuristic
7: I also enjoy futurist metal plating, that looks thousands of years old
8: My favorite places in the World – Turkey, Kauai, and Sandpoint, Id.
9: Along with the Sci-fi designs I am also deeply reverent of nature and God's Handiwork.
1: Artists who submit designs in Photoshop with all vector layers included will get top marks
2: Artist who incorporate the URL the best will get top marks
3: Don't hesitate to add your artist signature in the design somewhere
4: Artists who overlay on the listed Vehicle will go right to the top of the list!
Good Luck to all – Deadline is 7 May 2010
Thank You TanKCR

gimp, imagemagick, blender, scribus, kpaint, etc., etc., etc.

in order to run photoshop, i would either have to figure out how to work wine, or run some crappy old microsoft os in an emulator, which presupposes ownership of (or at least access to) photoshop the application.

you jest.

Sorry, lol, I use Gimp and photoshop, windows and Linux, sometimes I confuse myself... Yes Gimp is just fine, although you can save images in psd from Gimp, which would work just fine in Photoshop as well.

P.S. Wine isn't so hard these days, although I still feel that DirectX has issues, since Linux doesn't have DirectX support. Which pretty much kills your more graphic intense Games. Anyway, were you thinking about submitting some art? If so shoot me your ideas I would be happy to discuss them. I want to give everyone as much chance of success as possible, and I am particularly hoping that I totally sweet Linux design wins the thing...

Well, I just spoke with the airbrush artist and he is offering to airbrush the winners computer case. You could either have him do one of his own designs or give him one of yours. I may have to just throw some of my own designs in the contest, lol.


advertising, art, contest, design
