HOW DO YOU DRINK DR PEPPER CONTEST

Dr Pepper can be painted into so many experiences in our lives. Do you charge up with Dr Pepper while playing video games with friends? Perhaps you refresh yourself with Dr Pepper during your lunch break. Do you have fond memories of drinking Dr Pepper and sharing laughs on the porch with your grandparents?

We want to see: How do you drink Dr Pepper?

Show us how you drink Dr Pepper using any medium of visual art, other than photography or three-dimensional media. The winner will be turned into a mural so make sure you'd look great painted on a wall.

Paint yourself drinking Dr Pepper on the beach during a hot summer day. Sketch the Dr Pepper chugging contest you had with your friends. But you don't have to limit yourself to the realistic. Let your imagination run wild and create something a little more…imaginative.   Do an illustration of yourself enjoying a Dr Pepper while flying through the clouds, or depict Dr Pepper being poured off a 50-story building into your mouth.

Gives us who followed the rules more of a chance. And yes it is funny. To bad they can't follow rules because there are some good ones that don't.

I'm not quite sure. I would say the soonest would be after they announce the Semi-Finalists. The latest would be after the winners are announced.

Same Here, I liked what I saw, but most of the people that entered the contests were illustrators, I do illustrating from an advertising perspective. I guess what they were looking for was more of an illustrated theme than anything else. Plus the likeliness of you or I was 1 in several thousands, so our chances were against the odds. Well I have to say I like yours and mine the best...

@deviantartstaff: I'm really scared that my work is getting buried under all the other entries and not getting enough recognition. Do you guys go through every single piece and pick them yourself based on what you like and think what's good for advertisement? How much significance do you place on views and +favorites?
