Hi, who won?
Mmmm. What about this Taenaron?
deadline was 29th Feb, we're waiting for results ;)
I will have a go at this and probably fail miserably. Are the times in GMT?

What if I want rain, can I use rain brushes? Or are all brushes not made by me automatically out if they're not uberly manipulated? ;P

Nevermind about the rain brushes, but Vue comes with pre-rendered ships, buildings, etc...these are ok to use right?

yea they'll be ok :) and rainbrushes: nasme your sources in the description

One other thing. My piece's original size is 1920 x 1200. But I really wanted to add a border to it so I did. But the border makes it 2020 x 1350. The downloadable wallpapers are all wallpaper sizes though, it's just the preview that is larger than it should be because of the border. Can I still enter this? if not, then I'll just submit the wallpaper as a seperate deviation.

it's ok too ;)
But then you have to offer three different sizes in your pack.
