As I've mentioned above, you can use the tools of your choice, a graphic tablet or just paper and pencil. You can even do a vector or 3D rendering of your pumpkin if you like. It might also be fun to do a real pumpkin and submit a photo here. The image that you upload will be automatically resized to 640x480px. You keep all the rights for the image and you are free to use it for any future projects even if you win the contest. The only thing that we request is that the Halloween Pumpkin you submit here is done specifically for this contest and not an old work of yours.
The winner will be determined by the poll open to all registered members of the DC community. I am sure that the members will judge the creativity, the drawing skills and your sense of humor. Just as usual, the winner of this contest will receive a DC t-shirt from our store and will move one step closer to enrollment to the Elite Design Team.
