deadline - joen - 2011-06-02 14:04
The deadline is near, so here is my summary.
"desired colours on request"
All entries are so awesome, it will be a hard decision for the jury...
Best luck to all.

At least I've been told so once and can for me say that's true. Drawing is not about talent - the only talent you can have is that you naturally have a better look at things and can visualize those better - drawing itself is mostly practice. So feel inspired, pic up a pencil and start drawing!

I am jealous of your patience and dedication to learning the skill! But you have to admit, it comes more naturally to some than others.

Here is my entry, sorry for it being so close to the deadline.
This is just a small version, It can be larger if necessary. Colors can change easily too.

Wow we are close and I'm a bit behind...

I find the popcorn bucket to similar to the popcorn hour popcorn bucket.
Finally i love that weazel or what ever it is
Can you bring the xbmc logo to the pocorn bucket and give it colors out of the xbmc logo?
XBMC powered Popcorn
Is there a way to make the weazel eye shadow look like the X instead of two side laying comma?

Hey, it's a sloth, not a weasel, and the popcorn bag is really a standard one (just google images for 'popcorn bag' you'll see what I mean)
I have planned to add some gadget to the sloth eventually, and I don't really feel like messing with the eyes since they are what makes a sloth be recognizable!
Here's another logo version on black background and with the loader dots... stylish

+1 in B&W. The colored version needs some more simplification. It's too complex from the shading&coloring perspective

Thanks for the bump on Eksby! I was beginning to wonder if he was forgotten about.

Should I post here all the images or can I post just a few, and then give a link to flickr's photostream for all the variation (I have a lot of images (*coff* 45 *coff*coff*) and don't want to take too much space...it will be a sort of spamming I guess)?
