    Glad to see the return of GBATemp Graphics Competitions.
    I'll join, I have a good idea for this one.

    Also, I have a question. By gift card do you mean, for example, a £10 gift card you would use in a shop?

    Well the plastic ones that look like credit cards. Most major retailers use them.

    Not that I know of, although Shaun or Costello might have a high-res version.

    Okay, what exactly are we supposed to do because I'm kinda confused about the instructions. This what I did.

    You are supposed to design a gift card, for whatever, relating to GBAtemp. Be clever. You can have whatever you want for the actual design, as long as it follows the rules.

    Theres really nothing beyond that, so if thats not clear I'm not sure what to tell you.
    Thats a credit card, btw.

    I love these things. Can't wait to see entries so hurry up you bastards!
    I won't join though since the last two things I've drawn was "SHIT" in donut letters on a bench and a penis with a marker on my sleeping friend's face.
    I also welcome free gift cards, PM me for my mailing address. Shit.

    wtf are donut letters?

    Oh I am so in [​IMG]
    Question: does the card actually have to be for something? Like a gift card that entitles someone to something, or are you just using "gift cards" to get the dimensions? (I think that's what's confusing people; a store gift card gives the cardholder credit to buy things, so do the gift cards for this contest have to have a purpose like that as well?)

    I haven't made the V3 head yet in high res (vector).

    It's on my to-do list when I get free time from my school work.

    It can be if you want it to. You can just have "GBAtemp Gift Card" written on it and you're golden, but realize that the gift card can be to anything GBAtemp related, ie, anything we discuss or unique to this forum.
