On January 20th MSX Resource Center and MSX Café, now PassionMSX, started the MSXArt'06 challenge. After an extension of the deadline the time has now come to close the challenge.

Unfortunately the RPG-art part of the challenge did not get MSX graphicians, who are perhaps all focusing on the MSXdev competition, active. Only one entry was submitted: Forces Beyond Empire, which are nice SCREEN 8 RPG drawings by Ernst Schuller who has, with that, won a printed MSX Calendar of the year 2007 with the 12 best artworks sent in to MSXArt'06 and an MSX T-Shirt.

The wallpaper contest did get a lot more entries, amongst which the same prize is to be divided as well. Here's an overview of all submitted entries:

The last 10 entries in the list (starting with Ninja Kun) have been added to the MSX Resource Cener downloads section today. While you enjoy downloading these wallpapers, telling what you think about them in the comments and, perhaps, actually use them as your new wallpaper on your desktop the jury will decide which 12 artworks are to be used in the MSX 2007 calendar and which one of them is the winner. Happy downloading!

Indeed, the "Ice Age" wallpaper is very funny and well done. The others are very good as well, this year there're entries of very high quality!

I WON? Eeeeeh… I would like to thank: MSX Café, MRC, my parents and everybody that DID NOT send in an entry. If only the national sweepstakes were that easy… oO

I considered joining, but I hate challenges with only 1 or 2 entries, they're completely no fun. The gfx'ians outthere who aren't doing an MSXDev game better come up with a rocksolid excuse for this void!

Those who can't be bothered to draw ever again could as well untick the 'can create graphics for MSX' in their profile.. ._.

Remko - could you send a jpeg of the PSD converted by you to ? I'll replace the wallpaper with the correct one.
