New Contest: Draw a Frog

Submitted by caedes 07/27/05 8:45 AM GMT

In reaction to the apparently complex topic of the last contest I've decided for a topic everyone should be clear on: Draw A Frog! I want you to create a wallpaper featuring one or more frogs which you have drawn. Any style is acceptable as long as no photography is used. (Don't worry photographers, the next contest will be all photography.) The last day to enter will be August 10. Just upload your entries to the contests->current contest gallery. Each member can participate in a maximum of 2 individual or team entries. Winners will get Cadre memberships of varying length and possibly the conference of a Caedes title. Good luck.

Draw a Frog contest results are ready.

Well, I know it says "anything but photography", but the contest states "draw a frog".
Hmmmm...
I think I will have to make a frog [inspired] fractal.
Edit: Would some one please tell me if this would be acceptable?

Let me get this straight: philcUK is smacking his forehead in despair because its so obvious that it needs to be a DRAWING, yet tbhockey is smacking his entire face in despair because its obvious it can be ANYTHING BUT A PHOTO. Hmmm.....
Using my advanced logic skills, I have concluded that both of you cannot be right.
Please, would some one answer my question without a sarcastic, yet witty gesture in between asterisks?

You need to upload in a wallpaper size, when you do the scan, you can change such thing, you can change the resolution, size, put it in inch, pixel, I think you have to go in pixels so that is what DPI means. I hope this helps Verena!

Just to clear things up for everyone, "Draw a Frog" is the title of the contest and not really a rule. The major rule is that it can be anything but a photograph, but obviously it is most in the spirit of the title if you use drawing somehow. This can be with pen and paper, a illustration program, whatever.

Also "conference" is use in this case as a form of "confer" (e.g. I hereby confer the title "Giant Slothlike Mammal" upon you).
