  1. im pretty sure the first is not even from a note…

  2. lol that person outruns Leonardo da Vinci… and on a tablet… that some talent

  3. U troleed us :D

  4. we had time to 14 march, and results are today ? I was doing a complicated sketch and I thought I still have plenty of time, but you just shortened the time, no questions asked. ********!

  5. WELL?

    First you guys didnt specify the rules..

    What application can be used?

    Photoshop processing allowed?



    Sorry this wasnt S-pen thing.. this was a Photoshop thing!

    • We checked the sources and both seems legit.
      About the applications. Everyone has their own favorite draw application.

      • Not sure about the Sonic one.. but the first one by TheNeighbor surely has loads of Photoshop processing even a Blind man can see..

        TheNeighbor: “Here is my entry of the illustration of Arya Stark, a character in the Game of Thrones TV seies. Done from scratch, using the new “Adobe Photoshop” Touch for Phones”

        If you click on the link of Arya Strak he posted on
        flickr.. you can see beneath the photoshop processing the sketch with the S-pen (the part where the S-pen was actually used) was nothing special..

        Photoshop did all the magic!

        He would have been the winner in photoshop contest for sure..

        Didnt expect Sammobile to not know how photoshop turns something simple into unbelievable!

        Anyway there were more deserving people who made everything with hand.. with true hard work!

        • Don’t understand what the problem is if you want to use photoshop to draw something feel free.
          He didn’t just copy – paste images from the internet. This is a own creation using the program photoshop. We didn’t said any rule about applications.

          • Oh then i guess you dont know what photoshop is or does?

            Photoshop on mobile or pc same thing right? you wouldnt know.. then this means pc was allowed?

            If pc was allowed.. then why wernt people from Pc or other devices allowed?
            because the concept of using only a note device ends if you use photoshop from mobile/Pc.

            Sammobile confused?

            Anyway no point of arguing if you dont understand photoshop.

          • Lol I do understand what photoshop is, only who said he used the photoshop of PC and not everything on mobile.he made some screenshots is that not allowed or something?

          • Actually when u say draw something on the note… we were automatically supposed to believe that it means we r supposed to draw something using the damn pen… coz thats what a note is… not use photoshop to turn an already pic to look something like that… i believe the hedgehog is legit but its still not the best coz there were obviously better pieces….

  6. If you think the TheNeighbor faked everything. check here some other sketch of him…

    • Now you check out arya strak that he made.. see the real sketch below the photoshop processing. :)

      • Any pic with photoshop should have been disqualified.. because now this contest had become photoshop contest.

        I know people who are master when it comes to photoshop.. Would have asked for their help and maybe would have won lol :P

        But anyway.. as i said.. next time you guys should give us complete rules.

        • Our bad luck,Sam mobile is not going to understand the thing,isn’t it?

          • I tried my best.. Apparently they dont know what photoshop and the effects and stuff it has..

            And they dont seem to understand that almost everyone except for 2-3 people already knew by common sense that softwares like photoshop wernt allowed..
            There was a reason people gave screenshots right?

            They cant obviously reverse the decision.. and they obviously will never admit that they messed the giveaway big time..

            Ill say it again.. if we could use all available effect softwares.. like photoshop that we thought wernt allowed.. the outcomes of this contest could have been a lot different..

            I give up.

  7. Hey we can complain.. But dont use rude language!

    • I understand.. there maybe many more people like you who didnt recheck the date when it was Changed..

      Your bad luck i guess.. Now relax and complete your sketch.. for ur own collection :)

  8. With so many people unhappy with the result, I really think that they should have a re-look into the result. And next time, like so many people are suggesting, please have some rules for people to follow. I too think that when the competition was about sketching on a Note device, nothing but a sketch done entirely on S-Note should have been accepted. None-the-less, this is just a suggestion for future competitions. Congratulations to the winners :)

  9. To sum up.. If people knew photoshop was allowed.. That would have been a completely different ball game..

    And who knows who would have won with photoshop processing.. Im sure many people didnt use photoshop thinking it wasnt allowed?
    It was common sense!

    So honestly.. this competition was a big fail in the end.

    It showed what photoshop could do.. nothing to do with note.

    Maybe next time you guys plan before you start a giveaway.

  10. Seriously? I’m unsubscribing! There is no reason why someone with barely any art talent drawing be choose over my drawing if you were choosing the best art piece, such a joke! Also that first one is not done on the Note, its very clear!

  11. congratulation to the both impressive and talented winners.

    I do not own a note (I had bought the GSII when the G.Note 1 was released (had I known I could have waited)) and I own a GT 8.9, I have been very happy to use for one year (used to read technical pdf books).

    A part from that, and in spite of the fact I have not seen any yet, I think the note 8.0 could be a big hit in companies :
    to take notes (at conferences, in meetings), holding tens of technical pdf books. More over it could be used (as I do with my GSII) to take pictures of a white board after a brainstorming, but in the case of the note 8.0 that picture you even be later annotated thanks to the S pen.

    This, Just to say that you and Samsung centered the launch of the note 8.0 around drawing and art creativity but I see another possible area of success : companies and the working places.

    and I would even add one other area of possible success, due to its light weight and rather big screen and ability to take notes and write and learn how to write : SCHOOLS !

    Yes !

    Does it not hurt your heart to see little children carrying bags that are 1/3 of their weight ! endangering the good growth of their bones ?
    All that because they carry heavy paper books ?

    Let’s do away with paper books (where possible), let us use .pdf instead read (and annotated) on the Galaxy Note 8.0 for 590 grams instead of several kilos children have to carry.

    I can even suggest the app for reading, ebooks the one I use : repligo.

    Now you can say to marketing managers of Samsung that I too deserve a galaxy note 8.0, would it be just to demonstrate how useful it can be when working in a company.

    I am convinced that we are close (how this is difficult to say)
    to write on something else than paper casually, Microsoft and Wacom started the way with tablet pc O.S, samsung is pushing this forward still with the notes and the S pen in mass selling equipment, may be it will be the killer app, may be this is this year or this month…

  12. i was seriously dissappointed in the result… dnt u guys think my gaara and that girl was better than that hedge hog… :(

  13. If the First picture is drawn by only S-pen(Not Really!!!),then the artist would be the best among Leo,Picasso,M.F.Hussain and others….
    Anyways Congratulations to the Winners…..

    • Only an idiot can believe that was the work of S-Pen.. only those who havent used an actual S-pen would believe.
      Check out those effects lol

  14. There have been several things in this contest that don’t feel right:

    1. Changing the date is just unfair. People shouldn’t have to be looking at the thread everyday for contest rules to change.

    2. About the PS thing, I thought the jury would appreciate the S-Pen craft better than letting apps do their image algorithms. I agree that it should be allowed but it should also be less appreciated. Personally I used PS magic wand to cut the shape of the Note 8.0 that I imported as a layer on SBP.

    3. I thought it was meant to create something specifically for the contest, not just something that you already had done. Creating something new makes sense. Uploading old work feels like a C.V.: “hey, this is my portfolio. Look at what I do”. So unfair too.

    4. And the hedgehog… I can’t believe this was considered better than so many nice drawings, honestly. Including my own. I’m not angry because I’ve not won, I’m angry because I expected the winner to be the best. Period.

    • And you dont see the problem when the colour/effects started?
      Anyway im outa here..
      Guess Mr sonic and this guy were your friends :D
