Splash screen contest for 2.45

It’s that jolly time of celebration again, no, not Christmas, the Splash contest!

2.45 (stable release) is lurking around the corner. While it’s not a featureful release, we still need a new splash, so here we are again!

Deadline is Sunday July 15th, so you have a full week to flex your artistic muscles!

Editorial note: the following is ripped off older splash contest thread, all credits to original authors basse and khughes.

You have again a chance of becoming part of blender history. imagine, every time people open blender, they would see your picture and think: “one day, i hope i can make such wonderful art too, as this splash screen here”…

Rules for the splash screen contest are simple:

* don't talk about the splash screen contest
* don't talk about rule #1
* use template ([download here](http://blenderartists.org/~theeth/splash_template_245.png))

* don't overlap splash screen area. make your picture fit in the given space.
* don't use blender logo
* don't use suzanne.
* don't other logos either, like foundation, or orange..
* you can use old works, or make completely new.
* you can participate with more than one image, but,
* do not make millions of variations of the same idea,
* just make a good one
* it has to look awesome.
* post your works on this thread.
* keep thread clean, entries and questions about competition only.

To repeat: the deadline is this Sunday, July 15th, 1200 GMT.

GO!

Hi!
Here is my entry for the 2.45 splash screen :
http://3d-synthesis.com/images/splash_245.jpg
It is made from parts modelled for the Blenderart Mag #11 theme about mechanical.
It is a Wright Cyclone 9 - (R-1820) Airplane motor.
More than 12 versions of this motor have been built, from 575hp up to 1425hp, between years 1931 and 1950.
As the template was in PNG format, I made a PNG image, but it was displayed here as a black image,
so the image shown is JPG. A PNG version is available here :

Philippe.

Here are my entries. I hope you like them.

And, my updated entry from last time:

Lots of good splashes out there. Good luck to everyone.
Who judges these things anyway? Is it Ton himself or is someone appointed or is there like a committee that’s selected?

In the buttons field above the reply text box there’s a post image button that looks like so: http://blenderartists.org/forum/images/editor/insertimage.gif
If you click that you need to enter the URL of the image. So it needs to be hosted somewhere on the intarnuts
