Cool Contest Cat!
I actually PhotoShoped a N4G pumpkin a few years back on the forums just for fun!
Its actually really easy and fun to do for a chance at some free games!

BTW I'm partial to Mortal Kombat! ;D
Have fun!

You just opened a can of worms by allowing photoshop. Photoshop is what I do best, better than any of my other skills and better than anyone I know. I will be back with a submission you better believe.

Apparently..
Overnight shipping is too much for a website. Who would have thought.

Regardless, I'm carving Fatman in a pumpkin. Then I'll put it on my porch to scare all the rodents, thieves, and chillen' away.
Myst  +   1502d ago
lol compared to my art class of drawing 2 that's about the same time I was given for an art project. At least Photoshop is available though whereas I had to do all mine by hand :p.
Myst  +   1502d ago
Well I guess I'm out, unless a drawing of a pumpkin with an artistic design is okay :) at least on rather large paper (it's sitting in my car so don't have the dimensions but I think it's 11xsomething). Don't have photoshop anymore and I can't carve worth crap [never carved before].

Well good luck to those who enter!

-Edit-
The paper is 18x24 I was way off lol.

I went to Wal Mart
and stole a pumpkin. A strange man ran after me. My friend sacrificed himself and helped me get away. However, I tripped and fell, squashing the pumpkin. If you care for my friend who is now in jail, send him something.

I don't have a picture, just something I stole from Kotaku.

What's funny here Cat is that I have all the artistic ability of a pumpkin.

I think people have to put up with enough in the way of bad jokes from me on this site already. I'm not going to put the staff through my attempt at art.

Best of luck to those entering though.

Hey.
I won in the PAX Swag Giveaway and I read something either here or some other site that you are only allowed 1 prize per like 6 months or something, was that this site? and am I eligible to enter this? Dont know if I really have the time but want to know if I can enter before I even think about attempting this, thanks.
Cat  +   1501d ago

TheOnlyMastrx  +   1501d ago

Are any of them actual bundles or software only? I'd really like to have those plastic Beatles instruments.

Tricked you all, heres my entry.
Ok first off snipes1313 stole my idea whether its their pic or not lol, and secondly I had never seen any pumpkin with the PlayStation logo before so I drew mine up a few days ago and cut it today, wasn't trying to copy ideas. Also carved the other side of this pumpkin so I am sorry if you can see through it haha (: and to prove its my picture, CHECK OUT ALL MY PAX SWAG!

Good luck everyone!

CadeRageous  +   1496d ago
