Don't forget David the winner will be drawn randomly, so you can participate even if you think you're not the best artist!

Ooo, I do love that MMOArt picture...

Does it have to be drawn in reality? Or can a computer be used?

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

You can use anything at all to create the drawing, so computer-drawings are fine too. (Note that it does not at all have to look like the Googlebot MMOArt created.)

I don't have a scanner, can I participate with a sketch on a computer?

I've updated my entry (I know it's random, but I got bored) it now looks more like a planet: [ picasaweb.google.com/mrrix32/M ...]

Hi,

Since G helps me everyday, deliver all my email, bring a lot of traffic to my websites, helps me to pay the bills through adsense and so on, I thought that would be very nice to have the Googlebot Artwork to decorate my homeoffice(that I hope to be done in march of this year).

Here is my entry:

Its not a sketch, but I hope that I can participate too...
my email: tserafim[put at-character here]gmail
ps: yes, it has a very low density

Thanks Philipp for the idea... I had a good time doing that...

Travis Harris [PersonRank 10]

two ideas along the same lines....
first one was inspired by :
treknature.com/gallery/Asia/In ...


trex005.googlepages.com/Google ...



Second is incredibly simple, but the same concept :

Mambo, that's awesome! ;-)

Mambo [PersonRank 10]

Hey thanks Tony! :-) I enjoyed doing it. I was going to do R2-D2, with like a hologram projection, but I decided against (i.e. i'm not good enough)

Travis Harris [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Philipp, bummer you can't have a non random prize too.... I'd give my vote to Mambo... That's great :)

Tiago Serafim [PersonRank 4]

I agree with Travis... Mambo´s artwork is GREAT!

OH

MY

GOSH!!! =oO

I can't believe I won! =O) First and foremost, I'd like to thank my mom, dad, and sister.... Just kidding! =op

Wow!... hehehe! I had A LOT of fun sketching the Googlebot. (Pssst. I'm in the sketching. I'm the one holding a book! LOL) I didn't think I'd win since I never win anything(!). Today must be my lucky day.

I love everyone's drawings (you guys are extremely talented artists!) and I'm sure I wouldn't have won if the winner wasn't chosen randomly!

Thank you, Philipp, for giving us a fun contest to compete in. I hope Google doesn't go out of business so that I could read your blog and talk to the forum members for a long time!

Thanks again!

Jenny
