There's a size maximum... wonder if there's any minimum (referring more to digital entries)? If it's done in vector art, no problem, but if its done like an 800x600 72dpi raster pic, it's not gonna print well in any size bigger than a card. Also, no mention of multiple entries =) Cool contest tho!

confused on the size spec, is that 2 inches by 2 inches?!?!
Also emails are being bounced back from the supplied address.

2'= 2 feet; fixed the mail address..it works now. Thanks!! For digital entries, the resolution should be high enough for it to look good when printed.

Hey there. I need an excuse to draw some dragons and this looks like a perfect fit. It doesn't mention if you can enter a whole bunch of times. Can you enter a whole bunch of times? Is it a "more the merrier" kind of thing?

Let's see, umm, I've got a painting of a dragon that 'ate' a knight. Is that okay? No, seriously... He's pretty chubby in the belly department. Really, I'll send it to you guys if you don't believe me.

Chubby belly is good...especially for a big dragon!

Some really great art is underway! Keep it coming!

does the dragon HAVE to be eating the knight...or can the knight win in some way too

I Have the same question as go hero, can the dragon do something else, a frame before he eats the knight or something?

can the knight be eathing the dragon as well - as an m.c.escher -esque/dog-eating its own tail sort of motif?

The dragon does NOT have to be eating the knight... think of it more as dragon vs. knight - a classic instance of "evil" vs. "good".
