pixelkid: I personally think the requirement should have been to use a username that ISN'T yours to keep the anonymous nature of contests...but oh well. ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
jaescoe21: i agree with pixelkid. I'm not even sure i could do mine ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
Keiley22: can't do my name lol... oh wait.... I could do a typography image lol ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
Mozzafan07: Something new to do...........always fun to try. ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
RayTedwell: This could be a fun exercise, but I dont see how it can be a contest. If you do a good job representing your username people will know exactly who you are. ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
CMYK46: I'm passing on this one, and wondering how it was even considered for a contest topic. Can I vote for it to be replaced with something else? ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
downoffthedragon: I don't think that I can do mine because it would require a pre manipulated image because I'm not that good with the drawing. No, wait. I think I have an idea. ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
hereisanoop: if i work with my user name, any chance there it be removed? ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
ponti55: The contests would've been just as good if people had to guess who you were representing, and not just yourself.. besides a lot of people have usernames that can;t be represented by images... ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
Akassa: I says "your name" and not ohers so we have to work on our usernames... but then our entries won't be anonymous at all O_o ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
Drivenslush: wow.. this is starting out as a great contest Idea.. I love the absence of fear.. and a lot of NEW choppers right of the bat... ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
lchappell: Don't be ( 5 years and 2179 days ago )
divair: What about when one's username is his/her real name? So they have to fall back on typography (if it isn't off topic) or just to give it up... ( 5 years and 2178 days ago )
DigitalDreamer: I agree with ponti55 about guessing who it is rather than giving it away. Would of been fun to play. Also if you just use your regular name here is an idea, and do art based on what your name means. ( 5 years and 2177 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I actually think this will be interesting, I mean every contest I've ever voted on was anonymous until now. However, I will say to everyone, I may like ya and we may exchange thoughts and what not but it's not going to change my vote. Probably just my comments. ( 5 years and 2177 days ago )
Suicidesquid: woah lookit that my contest made it o.O cool ( 5 years and 2177 days ago )
swordfish: this is awesome contest so far.... ( 5 years and 2173 days ago )
Contest Moderator: All entries submitted after 20.00 GMT (feb 12) will be removed ( 5 years and 2171 days ago )

I made this one quite some time ago, just for fun, and it just felt great for this contest. =)

So, what I did:
1. Create the 3d 'wlado' model in 3ds max and textured it [altered the textures in PS before that]
2. Imported into photoshop, added the background sky
3. Did some burning, dodgeing, contrast, and other tweaking.
4. Add the clouds around (brushes)
5. Flattened the image and added warming photo filter.

And that's it, hope you like it =) (5 years and 2178 days ago)

I've been fried, I've been baked, I've been mashed and I've even been burned, but I almost always remain CHIPper.

Idaho is were I grew up and when the auspicious time came for me to choose an internet name (waaaaay back when the internet was all shiny and new), this is the name I came up with. ID is the postal abbreviation for Idaho and t8r is an abbreviation for potato, something Idaho is famous for.

Gees, an abbreviated name and I sure am long winded... (5 years and 2179 days ago)
