Woah!  It’s been quite some time!  If you’re like me, you’ve been in locked in your room in the fetal position since December with no new dA sponsored contests out.  Well, it’s time to unlock the door, feel the sunshine on your face, and breathe in the fresh breeze because we have a brand new contest plus winners from the Inception Cover Art contest! :la:

:star: Dr Pepper presents Game Mashup Mural Contest

…Using DeviantArt muro!

For this event, dA, Dr Pepper and EA Games have banded together to bring you one HUGE contest!  You are challenged to make a mashup of four different elements:

:bulletblue: One character from Dead Space 2
:bulletblue: One character from Fight Night Champion
:bulletblue: A car from Need for Speed
:bulletblue: An activity that includes Dr Pepper

The twist to this contest is that you must use DeviantArt muro to make your mural!  When making your masterpiece, be sure to use the version of dA muro accessible through the news article, so you can use all the brush packs! :la:

The prizes for this contest are astronomically amazing, including a trip for 2 to Los Angeles to see your work as a piece of street art, not to mention the cash, iPads, Points, Premium Memberships and devWEAR goodies!  All qualifying entries will receive all deviantART muro brush packs!

This contest is open to those 18 years old or older and U.S. residents, and entries are due March 1, 2011.  Check out the article to use the special version of deviantART muro and to see all the rules!  

:star: LittleBigPlanet 2 Level Creation Contest

Another new contest has come out and this one is international, available to those 13 years or older.  LittleBigPlanet 2 allows for more customization than any game in the series, and using assets from the article, you are challenged to create your own level in the world!

Prizes for this contest include a Sony Playstation 3, copies of LittleBigPlanet 2, Points, cash, devWEAR, and Premium Memeberships! :eager:

This contest ends February 18, 2011 so get your creativity pumping and create the world of your dreams!

:star: Inception Cover Art Contest Winners!

Lastly, the winners for the Inception Cover Art Contest have been decided!  Christopher Nolan, the director of Inception, had the final word on these entries, and he picked 3 fantastic entries.  Check out his choices at this article.

I am writing to you regarding an Art competition that I wish to promote.

The completion is run in New Zealand for school children eligible between the ages of 5 – 15 years. The Competition runs from December 1st through to March 2016. There prizes of I pad’s and the opportunity for the national winner to fly to Japan for the world Art competition finals.

Can you please advise as to the best way I am able to set up and promote the competition on Deviantart as I would love to reach out to this community I am a member of?

Best regards,

Sean Macintyre

Anyone who is looking for an opportunity for a massive amount of exposure may be interested in this contest
Subscribers over 310,000
Views over 36,000,000 

If you watch my videos you will notice that I NEVER show my face; mostly for the reason of personal privacy and ehhmm...I build deadly weapons and gadgets.


This is an opportunity to earn a ridiculous amount of exposure via my YouTube channel by creating a front and back T-Shirt that looks like an armor vest. Eventually I will commission a prop maker to bring it to life and I model it in all of my videos! I will also be printing the design on T-Shirts  selling and selling them to help support myself and the high overhead costs of building gadgets, as well as for giveaways/other contests on my channel!

I will be posting a link to the WINNERS deviant page for all of my viewers and subscribers to see!
Winner gets $100 and a featured video on my channel of their artwork as well as a link in the description of all my videos that I wear the armor/shirt that will be designed. 

Let me know if you're interested and please spread the word if you know others that would be interested in this opportunity. 

Thank you

I'm looking for armor to create into a front and back T-Shirt to wear in my videos to display. Either through the process of sublimation or screen printing. YOUR design will be turned into a REAL LIFE ARMOR VEST by the YouTuber Armatus-Designs! He build a REAL LIFE BATMAN SUIT, its freaking BADASS
Check it out:…

Unlimited entries per person, post to my GadgeT-Tribe Group!
Must be front and back and be able to be put on a T-Shirt. Currently I'm thinking sublimation printing
check out the site link:…
If you have any better ideas send me a note! :) (Smile)

I'm thinking of a combination between IronMan / Hulkbuster (GGG Logo as arch reactor, and armor plating), Gears of War (Cutoff Vest and armor plating), Tron (Neon Outline, and Highlights), BenTen "Upgrade" Alien (PritedCircuitBoard pattern)
Colors: Black, Neon (GGG Logo) Blue, Gray and White for GGG Logo Outline
