    I don't understand this explanation. How does competition turn them into working artist?

    Follow up: outside of some rubber bracelets for $3, this is the cheapest thing on their site (the one that works, at least), and your big $20 prize won't even cover it:

    Wow, this is even worse than the prizes for loading screen illustration contests I entered in MMOs for giggles.

    Someone should make a scumbag Evil Tree meme...or just a scumbag studio meme in general. That'll teach 'em!

    I don't understand why she pulled down her panties but now decides to cover herself. How does that "represent Vegas to the fullest"? I think you guys needs to focus on narrative - what is it you're trying to say and how do you effectively create a picture that says that? However I will say that the rendering is well done and fills the composition nicely.

    I do believe it's a photograph...or at least based of one.

    Well, a custom placeholder page is better than a generic placeholder page. I guess.

    To put this in context, if I made some art and put it on t-shirts myself, I'd only have to sell five to beat the prize. Plus I'd have a better-looking shirt for my trouble. Plus it would advertise MY website.

    If you have five friends who are going to need shirts this summer, you can do better than this.

    At least their web design doesn't look too bad. However the white of the header image doesn't blend with the white of the background, making it a bit of an eyesore.

    I remember that logo from awhile back, someone posted it on here about a year ago... just can't remember where or why.

    Heh.
    This reminds me of something.

    Wait, I have a design idea for them!

    Print a $20 t-shirt that says:

    "I got used by a sleazy contest and all I got was this lousy t-shirt"

    There. Gimme $20.
