    I feel like Mike didn't take my entry seriously:

    I spent a lot of time getting Chicago just right.

    Mine was the Autobot Logo that I doctored up and turned into an L and backwards P. I did it in paint. I thought what I did was unique and pretty creative. Here's a look at the draft previous to the final one I entered in. I attempted to recreate the "trichromatic," and I use that term loosely, effect that was in the Iridescent video in the "Light Skeleton" and the letters in "IRIDESCENT."

    This guy. I feel that even though he is Dead And Messed Up, he's still pretty damn cool.

    Before you judge me on the contents of my photobucket album, I must point out that a lot of the erotic images I've uploaded are perfectly legal in various Eastern Bloc countries.

    I like this one, really good idea, and I probably couldn't have done that. Definitely not in paint. I just made my dumb joke one. I wish I'd entered it haha.

    I must say, the one with the cobra and disassembled tractor-trailer made me completely reevaluate what I thought the human body is capable of doing.

    This. I had 3 more ideas on my hdd, but I decided to submit just the one I thought it was the most appropiate to me... I'm not pissed, but I just think that 'More than one submission = More chances.'

    I don't want to be a sore loser :) so, my congratulations to the winner.

    Say what you will about the infamous Czech Muffler Snake, it requires remarkable flexibility and dedication.

    But I digress. Linkin Park. They make music. If nothing else, let us remember that.

    Didn't Linkin Park originate the Czech Muffler Snake?

    Looks like the winner broke a lot of the rules, and might have even cheated. First off, the artwork in the image is not his, all he did was take a pre-existing artwork and add effects to it/line trace it (proof: http://best-wallpaper.net/Optimus-Prime-and-Bumblebee-in-Transformers-3_1600x900.html). Joe wanted people to create an original artwork, but there's nothing original about this piece.

    There were also several other rules he broke. For starters: The entry he submitted was 900x900 which is not the size the official rules stated. He added a watermark which you are also not supposed to do, and finally he submitted 9 entries when the rules stated that anyone with more than one entry would be disqualified.

    Seriously, what's the point of rules if they won't be enforced?

    I feel like Linkin Park is going to have to. Once the news of this gets out people are going to go crazy if he doesn't get disqualified.

    Left: Original
    Right: Remake of same art done in less than 10 mins

    Not exactly the same, but still...this is pathetic. All he did was use a few filters in photoshop and play with the brightness/contrast and add text. It should be noted that I did not start with his original image. I used the transformers promo pic he took without his effects effects, and desaturated, then used the cutout filter to replicate the look.
