Have you ever wanted everybody see your art? Or maybe you wanted to draw art for a game-development studio? Now you have a chance!
The Powder Toy is seeking for great artists to draw pictures for our Desura page!
We want to promote TPT in Desura (like Steam, but for indie-games) to have more users, but we need some pictures representing how cool TPT gameplay is.
Okay, now about some simple rules:
You may participate in one, several or all nominations, that isn't restricted. Also you can retry as many times as you want, just make sure you notify us in this topic.
Contest will end on 14th of August, but we may change that date if we won't have much contestants.
Judges are: Simon, devast8a, Triclops200, frankbro and savask.
The prize is, that your art will be used on our Desura profile page, so everybody will see it! Notice that different people can win in different nominations, for example we can use boxshot of a one person, and profile header image from another person. Also, we will give you credit when announcing The Powder Toy Desura page.
And now some advices to make your art better:

To be honest, I don't find deco layer one of "your features being used in the greatest extent", but anyways, that's not the reason why you shouldn't use deco layer a lot (Notice that rules allow you to use some deco).
The idea of boxshots and profile pictures is to show game main features, such as electronics, air sim, reactions and so on. If the deco wasn't limited, people would probably draw ponies and other colorful stuff which doesn't show anything related to TPT at all.
Well, as you have probably noticed, "don't use a lot of deco" is just a recommendation. Judges including me will determine whenever there are too much deco or not, so there is not much to worry about, just we want to see "natural" saves. To my mind, some cool explosions and electronics are more impressive than deco layer textures :-P
And as about competitors, I think you shouldn't be really an artist to make a boxshot or profile image. Imagination + cool creations will make the work :-)
Desura is like Steam but for indie and open-source games. Here is the link: http://www.desura.com/
I don't know how many kids are there, but indie-auditory is usually pretty cool :-)
I did this but i don`t know what cattegry it is. What do you think about it? If the picture won`t open try this link http://www.mediafire.com/view/?sxixnaccu7o9uw4#

I think it's too empty and probably hard to understand for a not-player. Also it has wrong size (watch what sizes we need), but other than that, it looks cool :-)
