We're all very excited for this contest to begin. You can submit your images starting this Friday. Make sure to include the Big Cat in your renders, and also include any other product from the "Jungle Love" category on the HiveWire store. This way all of those artists that have worked so hard to create Jungle themed products can feel the love and support as well.

Happy rendering!

There's already some great Big Cat renders being done. So submit those too if you would. We have some great sponsors already and we should have more to come and we'll add them in.

Oh golly. I just happen to have an image with both kitty and Ken's lizard! It also has some of Lisa's plants in it, but I don't remember if they are ones that are included in the sale. But ... kitty and lizard make two! So ... I'm good!

Just had a thought Lisa and Chris . . . how many entries can each person upload? Are we only allowed to upload one entry? Curious minds want to know. ;)

quick question. I understand that the Big Cat must be in the picture, but if I were to add the black panther as well as the big cat, would that qualify as the two required jungle love items?
