â–º .: Banner Refresh :.

Post by solwyvern » Wed Mar 21, 2007 1:47 pm

Well, yeah, School term just ended, so I've got about a couple of weeks of free time on my hands, so...
I'd like to host a banner refresh campaign during this time. (If no one has any objections).

I'm pretty sure most of us would like to see some new ones on rotation, and it seems the only way to do so would be to start a motivation to make new banners,...

So who's up for it?

Instructions on how to make a banner:
  • Banner dimensions should be 980 in width, 200 pixels in height.
More information can be found: HERE or HERE

Since I don't know how many people will participate, let's limit the count to at least two banners per member, -and remember to try and broaden the range of banner mascots, for more variation. :wink:

Also,
We might as well replace the banner for the forums and/or the 'image disabled' image, if anyone would agree?

If there are any questions, doubts, ideas, suggestions,.. post away.

I might try my hand at one if I can find a suitable image to start from and free up some time. I'm not all that good though, lol. :P

If you have any trouble extracting your image, I'm willing to extract the image for you. So just send it to me. :D

i think this is a great idea, solwy-san. n_n
i've been thinking about the banners and the image disabled pic. It sure would be nice to see new ones (banners and stuff). n_n
we could have an e-chuuchuu banner~!!! n_n
i would like to try & help and to see what i could do. n_n i'll probably try and make one when school is over and summer vacation starts n_n.

now, to memorize more environmental policies and laws (why am i studying this while my course don't even relate to environment and stuff? sigh* minor subjects desu~) *goes back to studying* TT_TT

:lol: "Back then" I said that I would try to do some, and never actually did, sorry. I will try to do something this time...

The problem is : when I launch Photoshop, I usually stay more than 2 hours at it... browsing my image folder <_<

EDIT : Ha, and if you want to see how your banner will look on e-Shuushuu, you could use that.

Yes, I think some new banners would be nice as well. I should make another one myself (the yotsuba one was mine). An e-chuuchuu one would be pretty funny I think ;)
e-shuushuu!

well, the forum banner already looks nice. n_n i wonder where she's from.


@_@ uhm, i can't believe i stayed up all night studying @_@.
i once stayed up for two days without sleep because i was surfing the net.
Way back at highschool, i stayed up one night w/o sleep just to finish a
project (since i was sick for more than a week and i had to catch up). @_@
weird, i dont feel sleepy at all @_@. oh, ohayou~. well, gotta go back
studying @_@

You could search the imageboard for images. Just browse the 'chibi' tag or do a search for 'cute' on post content -to see what most people think is cute. :P

I'll see if I can do one . but . . . hmm

I haven't even finished the 2 vectors I've been working on since last year -_-;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

how horrible is that. >_>

I do have some ideas but I don't think I could pull them off XD

Would be nice if we could have some slight limited animation or even flash able ones >_> So we could have blinking eyes or something . .. but that might be asking for too much.

I'm not opposed to animated gifs, but I don't want any flash on the site.

You sure? Then here's a trial animated version of the banner above^^

For the middle;

Maybe we can get amfest to move the tail and ears. :lol:

EDIT: Wait hold that thought ↑ ..

It IS possible!! Image

*psychotic laughter thus ensues* :twisted:

Well, this is what I get for playing around with ImageReady all day.
I'm fairly new to this. ><
