Lloyd fan art by roberttk1967

After a couple of agonizing days going through the submissions in the Lloyd Fan Art contest, we have finally arrived at a decision. The winner of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is Android Central member roberttk1967 with his awesome digital creation above. Read what he has to say about this cool bit of art below, as well as check out a variation of the design and a peek behind the scenes!

Congratulations Robert, and thanks to everyone that entered!

It's Summer we have a new Galaxy Note, and Lloyd wanted to chill but I was stuck in my cubical, so he decided to take matters into his own arms (hands) and take a dip in his new Galaxy Note 10.1 with all of it's Android Greatness.

My inspiration was thinking if I was Lloyd what would I want to do. I started out with a sketch on a piece of paper to come up with the basic idea. I then moved to my Galaxy Tab 10.1 to see if I could create it all in Adobe PS Touch. I have only used the program to do some basic photo editing before, but this gave me a great opportunity to see how far I could push it.

Then came the hard part. My daughters had borrowed my stylus and lost it so I was going to have to draw the whole thing with my finger. All the pictures except for the tropical one I put on the calendar were shot with my VIbrant or Tab. I took a picture of me holding my tablet and then used the warp tool to lay on the Note 10.1 screen. Another challenge of using PS Touch is it only allows 15 layers, so as I was drawing I had to keep merging parts together. All in all I was pretty impressed with the app that I was able to do as many things (I thought I was going to have to do on my PC). The entire thing was created in PS Touch. Great way to learn how to use it. Took about 4-5 hours.

Had some extra time so I did an adaptation of the original where Lloyd is hanging on for dear life after I got tired of holding up his Note Pool.

I really want the Galaxy Note 10.1 so that I can start using the S-Pen and Wacom features to create my art, so I don't have to rely on the computer as much and can benefit from the split screen that my Tab can't do.

Congrats roberttk1967.

I also really liked the submissions from drduta & noendernemesis.

Robert's was super creative and detailed.

Congrats roberttk1967. I was crossing my fingers, but your submission deserved to win.

Thank you, I couldn't believe it when I loaded up Android Central this morning, I am so excited. I've never really won anything before. I really liked your design too. It would look great on an AC T-Shirt. There were alot of good designs and ideas so I feel honored to have won.

Thanks Again.

Appreciate the kind words, I am actually a T-shirt artist for a small company, so my artwork tends to lean towards t-shirt art by default haha. Enjoy your new tablet!

Great job! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Note 10.1 in the forums. Hope AC's review on the Note 10.1 doesn't discourage you; it's an awesome device.

Great job by Michelle too. There were a lot of good drawings and must have been hard to pick one.
