Excellent contest ! Do you have any requirements regarding the minimum size and the format of the artwork ?
Rule of thumb: Which quality would cast the best light on your submission? Not asking for 1200 dpi and above, of course ;)

So, blotted JPG compressions might probably not be the best of all ideas. As would be thumbnailish contributions with <75 dpi.
Format: Any conventional universal web format would do so all our board rats can view it. JPG, PNG, GIF, PDF, ASCII txt, you name it ...

Well done everyone, some grweat pics here! :)

Congrats, Florenus! [up]

If I'd done a submission it'd had speech bubbles in it:
Fuel Rat: "I've got fuel, you don't. Any questions?"
Thargoid: "Greetings, Edible Poet! We cone in Zero-G Cricket! Take me to your Hoopy Disease!"
