The SNK3R Photo Contest - $700,000 in prizes (updated) (in Contests)

SNK3R January 8 2006 8:56 PM EST

This is a silly contest for all those graphic artists out there!
Some of the CB1 folks may remember this from kNIGits' contest.
Here is the picture of SNK3R that is the basis for your artwork:


The judges of the contest will be Shade, thrakattack, and Bast.
They will pick their favorite picture on Saturday, January 21st at 12:00 PM EST,
and the artists will receive the following from me once winners are picked:

1st Place: $400,000.
2nd Place: $200,000.
3rd Place: $100,000.

All pictures must follow the PG rules, and must contain some visible parts of the above original.

To enter the contest, use an img tag to link to it here. If you don't have a hosting service to put the picture,
upload it to your user portrait on CB and link the image from there with the img tag.

You may enter as many times as you like. Have fun and be creative!

Also, please note that you do not have to use the exact image I have given. Copy and pasting certain parts into a new image with sceneries and other pictures will work as well.

How could I possibly not enter?

I want to see SNK on Mt Rushmore. :-|

Maelstrom January 9 2006 12:26 AM EST

You know, I've always wondered how SNK3R should be pronounced. "Snicker"?

Could we have a larger source file to work with?

Yeah, great contest. 

So, who's next? :) 

--SNK3R, January 20 2004 7:52 AM EST 

I guess it's you SNK3R :P

I put Ni on the Teletubbies, so I tried something similar here :)

SNK3R The Builder! - Can he fix it? YES HE CAN!

IndependenZ January 9 2006 7:26 AM EST

Well, I was testing some pictures but couldn't decide which one is the best.
So, I've just posted them all. The first one is the pure .JPG-picture, the second
one is an animated .GIF. Please be patient, some may take a while to load. Enjoy!

SNK3R sure gets around - but how disturbing is that Paris Hilton one? :P

Xiaz on Hiatus January 14 2006 9:05 PM EST

Man, that last image (Paris Hitlon) is CREEPY! lol

Maelstrom January 14 2006 9:10 PM EST

The last one from Barzo is FUNNY!

AdminShade January 15 2006 1:04 PM EST

Perhaps we should bring out a CBQ magazine online ;)

Stephen January 15 2006 8:44 PM EST

Such an enigmatic smile...

Maelstrom January 15 2006 9:07 PM EST

Monkey's on a roll!

"PLUS: The Forge Dwarf on what makes GL happy"

I literally laughed out loud! :)

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] January 16 2006 3:10 AM EST

I don't care what anyone else posts, BarzooMonkey needs to win. That CBQ monthly Is Awesome.

AdminShade January 16 2006 5:45 PM EST

bump ;)

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] January 16 2006 5:54 PM EST

The CBQ Monthly pretty much scared away any chance at victory :P

th00p January 16 2006 6:02 PM EST

I would have to agree about the CBQ monthly I would also like to throw up from looking at the Mona SNK3R Is it just me, or was da Vinci really a psycopath?

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] January 17 2006 5:53 AM EST

Da Vinci was said to have quoted that "Every persons perfect partner is created in the image of themselves" and they think that Da Vinci was simply creating a self portrait but as a female rather than a male.

Thanks for running the contest, it was fun making the entry. Hope everyone had at least a few giggles :D

QBPixel Sage January 21 2006 7:55 PM EST

Wonderful contest, and its a shame I didn't have more time to make more entries. Winners are well picked.

On a side note, I'm particularly fond of thecheeze's picture, its has wonderful composition and the overall feel is nice.

Good job all!
