Hey all, we've got an upcoming contest with EA for Dragon Age: Origins where we're asking people to submit some LARP recreations of battles from the game. While the contest is still a ways off we're designing some goofy ads to feature on the site during the week of the contest. The idea is to work the staff into various goofball LARP scenarios. I've been doing some on my own, and making a fool of myself in the process, but if you're bored and want to help out please add your own versions here. If they're any good we'll add them to the rotation and give you credit in the image.  
 
If you decide to send something in, don't worry about dealing with the Dragon age messaging, just figure out a goofy image and I'll make sure the messaging gets included on top of it.  
 
Trying to get these done today, so the sooner you put something up, the more likely it'll get used. Give a yell if you have any questions.
 
Here are the sizes 
300x250 
300x600 
880x150 
160x600

If people can create stuff that's as good as what's in the t-shirt thread, there are going to be some awesome ads made.

Preferred the beard, although I do like neon lobsters.

I like this idea!! I am not great with Photoshop (I actually don't have it) but, knowing the creativity of users on this site, I am sure we will see some great entries.

Holy shit, Dave! You look like Jonathan Torrens when your face is hairless! And people who aren't from Canada probably have no idea who that is, so I don't know why I posted this message!

This thread seems to be more about Dave himself then what he's asking us to do. But lack of mustache is breathtaking...

@Suicrat: Don't worry about the esrb and logo stuff. Just post the actual design image (which looks funny). Also, that one looks like you want to size it at 880x150.

@TheMustacheHero: Should also probably mention that you don't want to directly rip from movies for this. SInce it's for Dragon Age they won't want to mix brands. I'd just stick with generic fantasy concepts. 
 
Nice try though, passing it to Vinny!

I used screenshots from Giant Bomb's Dragon Age: Origins page, that's allowed, right?

Here's a redo, without the ESRB or game info. (The image I uploaded is original size, you know what to do to view it as such.)

@Bucketdeth: Heh, if only you know what little effort I actually put in. The key to cropping along the edge of people's faces using MS Paint is the spray-paint tool and saving the face image as a 256 colour bitmap, then making black the right-click colour, then making sure the background is transparent.
 
The secret's out! Now all my works of art will be endlessly plagiarized! Woe is me!
