Napoleon Bonaparte once said "Un bon croquis vaut mieux qu'un long discours," or "A good sketch is better than a long speech". We tend to agree with him, great ideas do come from great artwork and the creative minds of concept artists who dream up many of the characters and scenes we face in games today. And that is why we want you to show us why a picture is worth a thousand words in our Concept Art Competition.

Mod DB, The Art Institute Online and Alienware challenges you to bring forth your single most striking, awe inspiring and breathtaking original game art.

I wish I could enter. I am good at drawing, but my coloring skills are awful, sadly.

It is not midnight London time. It is midnight GMT. London time is BST (British Summer Time) at the moment, which is 1 hour's difference from GMT/UTC.

Argh, where did my tablet pen go?

I can't begin the drawing before I find it.
Guess I could do some pencil scetches up to that, though...
