Yes, as you have read ... we are having a Valentine's banner contest ^_^

I'll be short with the rules this time
- no fanart
- animeforum.com link must be on it
- accepted formats: .jpg and .png (use png only if you're planing to make a transparent banner)
- contest ends on 10th February 2007
- banner size is 900px in width and 122px in height
- slices size are (Photoshop users see the given psd):
-- left part: 750px x 122px
-- center (repeating) part: 5px x 122px
-- right part: 145px x 122px
- the banner template: http://wizzard.underground.si/AF/AF-new-banner.psd (made using Photoshop CS2; when opening in older versions the slices may disappear, but the guides should be still there -> in this case, export the banner to ImageReaedy -> go to Slices -> Create slices from Guides -> export back to PhotoShop and continue the work).
- See the current banners as an example.


http://wizzard.underground.si/Gallery/tn/rules.jpg (http://wizzard.underground.si/Gallery/rules.jpg)

The best way to make the banner would be to use the given template. When finished you just need to export the slices using the "save for web" export -> saving the whole html, the slices will be in the “images” folder.

DISCLAIMER: by submitting the banners you're giving animeforum.com the permission of using it for any kind of promotions and displaying it on the forums/gallery or any other partner sites.

Judging ... I'm not sure yet, I'll probably pick someone to judge them.

Post the banner parts in this thread, separated with a space or line

Banners will be uploaded for the entire Valentine's week.

Meanwhile, don't forgot about the Valentine's wallpaper contest (http://www.animeforum.com/showthread.php?t=55044) ;) Sometimes you can make nifty banners out of wallpapers ;)

Edit: Preview Preview Preview!!!!

Oh, also, I'd like to add ... let the banners have a border ... doesn't matter what color, but believe me, they really look awkward without it.
See the current banners ... you won't find anyone without a border, most of them are white.

Hello everyone,

here is my entry. :twocents:

http://www.animeforum.com/image/4641045cb63653577d.jpg.http://www.animeforum.com/image/4641045cb6387ae29b.jpg.http://www.animeforum.com/image/4641045cb6387bccf8.jpg

Edit:

I added a 1px white border. I don't think it is really necessary, but since it doesn't look worse in the least, here you are. That comes from not reading the contest post thoroughly. :rolleyes:

And, about this thiefing guy. I can't think that anyone would rip off the work of another person in this obvious and stupid way, so he probably only wants to spam and/or troll. :nono:

Have fun,
Elfenstein. :happy:

rather make it jpg ;)

I'm mostly complaining since png is rather bigger in file size than jpg ... that makes the banner load slower ... a png can be twice or 3 times bigger than a jpg file ;)

Edit: Updated the preview ^_^

Grats to all the winners. Those three picks would have been my choice as well, though in a slightly different order. :awe:

It was a really nice contest. I had fun doing a banner for a change, though I didn't win. But then I didn't expect to neither. :)

Looking forward to the next contest.

Have fun,
Elfenstein.
