  • RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
  • They can be done on any medium.
  • If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.

Good luck

Heh. I always wondered who “ROR” was since his topics keep getting selected.

ROR = Roberto Ortiz :lightbulb


I see nothing. I know nothing.

 the blue screen of death!


sorry guys

imageshack is giving me problems, i can’t show my pic…


ah well, life goes on :stuck_out_tongue:



maybe imageshack is having a bad day at the office.

You guys should try It works great for me and allows hotlinking for files under 250KB.


ahaha the ROR mistery unveiled :smiley: cool, you know I actually thought it was a member :slight_smile:


umm… I use it, and my problem was that it limits the bandwidth to 250M/month… I guess it depends on how much do you plan to post, I had problems when I posted sketches everyday and it was voting time (a lot of people visits this forums then)… there have been people recommending sites a lot of times, here are some more if anyone is interested

Ganthu - hehehe, very funny!




30-ish minutes, ps, wacom, no reference…


Leaping lizards! The image is so big I can’t figure it out. You should re-size them to within the requested standard of 600x800 (800x600)… please… :slight_smile:
