Hey all!

The Inkscape team and community is preparing to release Inkscape 0.45. Since we will be releasing a new version of Inkscape in the near future, we need to have a new about screen done.

Basics:
:bulletgreen:Our goal is to show off what the new version of Inkscape can do in an artistic manner.
:bulletgreen:You should use a current SVN build (aka nightly build) to show off some new features. Nightly builds can be obtained from our downloads page (link is below) under the "Development Versions" section. It is highly recommended to get the most recently dated version.
:bulletgreen:The contest will run from December 15, 2006 - December 31 2006.

Rules:
:bulletred:The canvas dimensions must be 750x625 px / 600x500 pt (your image can bleed outside of the canvas, but anything outside of the canvas border will not be rendered).
:bulletred:It must be made in Inkscape only with no post processing as we will require the SVG file to use for the about screen. Note: Your SVG file will be distributed with Inkscape 0.45.
:bulletred:It must use the new Blur feature (can be found in the Fill and Stroke dialog).
:bulletred:It must load relatively fast since it will be rendered in real-time when someone views the about screen (the SVG's file size should be taken into consideration too).
:bulletred:It must include the Inkscape logo and the following text "Inkscape", "0.45", "Draw Freely.", "www.inkscape.org", and last but not least, your name, signature, or online handle (whichever you'd prefer).
:bulletred:There can be a maximum of three entries submitted per community member.
:bulletred:It must not contain anything inappropriate or otherwise offensive.
:bulletred:We will need for you to post your SVG file online as well (either here on DA or on your own blog, website, or FTP) at the time of submission. You may need to put it in a zip file if DA doesn't allow you to upload SVG. If your SVG files are not online by the contest deadline, those entries will be disqualified.
:bulletred:Have fun!

Deadline:
December 31, 2006

Prize:
Having your art be the About Screen for the new version and a credit for your work.

Judging:
Preliminary judging will be done by the Inkscape community on DeviantART. The judging period will be from January 1, 2007 - January 6, 2007. When we have an official "Top 3", the judging will then be turned over to the Inkscape developers for final judging. Please note that when it is turned over to the developers, once they have chosen the winner they may have requests for modifications.

Submissions:
As with our previous contests, please post your submissions to your gallery or scraps and then post a reply to this Journal entry with a link.

Good luck everyone!

Here's my 3rd and final entry. For some reason the dA thumbnail is not showing up correctly right now (maybe a server problem?) but the full size view is there, so click that to view it:

Here's my first crack at it. A *lot* more clinical than the two I've seen submitted so far. Not sure that's a good thing either. ;)

Here's the entry (my first ever here btw):
