OT: The Challenge [Deke's Techniques]
Deke has issued a challenge for any artist using Photoshop, Illustrator - and the winning prize is the whole suit of soft-wares. From July 17'nth (today) the challenge starts with Photoshop, July 31'st starts the Illustrator challenge, and August 14'th starts the free-for-all (meaning all kinds of softwares, not sure if there's restrictions).
Check out the necessary info for submission(s) here:
Yeah, post on Youtube, ship the link to Deke with the form, and you're set.
A caveat, you need to post an address inside the US, so if you have a relative that lives in the US... Not sure why they have this restriction.
Anyway, it's a nice way to get some software goodies that's worth a load.
