Italian Competition

I have a request from Antonio, my friend in Italy.

He did this drawing as an un-official-remake of the official poster for the Lucca Comics & Games convention that is held in the city of Lucca. He sent it in to the organizers, and they liked the drawing so much that they asked him if it was possible to use it for a competition.

The aim: Create an image (GIF or JPEG file) of DRAKE the dragon and TORRE GUINIGI (the middle-ages-tower in Lucca with trees on the top) with these dimentions:

max 1200x1200 pixels
max size 300kB

Send it to before November 30, 2003

The winner will receive the official poster of LuccaComics2003 and a winners plate (maybe that should be plaque?)
