View Full Version : [contest] April Signature Contest

04-14-2007, 07:43 AM
Hey all,
it's been a day since the wallpaper contest was officially closed with the results posted in the Wallpaper sub forum, so it's time to start another one. This time we will host a signature contest. The theme is simple ... make a signature which will include a manga character.

To make it simple the rules for this contest are the following:
- your sig must contain a character which was taken out of a manga book ... to make it short ... only manga scans can be used (see the sample here (http://wizzard.underground.si/Gallery//sigs/Hayate-Bunny.jpg));
- when posting your sig don't forget to attach the link to the scan you used or upload it near the signature (if the scan is yours) as proof;
- your sig mustn't exceed 500px in width and 160px in height or be smaller than 200px in width and 100px height;
- animated signatures are not allowed;
- max signature size is 512kB;
- accepted formats are ".jpg" and ".png". (to make transparent signatures you can use the nifty Alpha channel support in the ".png" format);
- by entering this contest you agree that your sig can be added on www.animegalleries.net signature gallery, and used for any kind of promotion of AF, AG or any other partner site owned by the AnimeGlobe Corp. So you must add the "www.animegalleries.net" link somewhere on it, make it visible, not too big, just that it's readable;
- of course, no hentai images are allowed (ecchis are allowed if not too explicit);
- it has to be your own work! No ripping others sigs/wallpapers;
- submitting will be done in this thread;
- only one submission per user will be accepted. If you want to change or fix your submission feel free to do it until the contest ends.

The deadline is two (2) weeks from today (28th April, 2007).

The judging will be kept between the site's staff. Not sure who I will ask so corrupting your favorite Mod/Admin won't help you win the contest. ;)

The best 3 sigs will receive:
- 1st place: 2500 points;
- 2nd place: 1500 points;
- 3rd place: 500 points.

Happy sig making ^_^

It's funny that you chose it to be manga, I just made this. I googled the image, so if it's not acutally from the manga and it's from the movie, let me know and I'll remove it. *edit* sorry haha my adhd gets the best of me sometimes, I read them, it just didn't register*

got the scan here http://www.abczone.it/public/mangaphotoalbum/file/AngelSanctuary/sanctuary012.jpg

I know I'm not very good, but this is fun ;)

very clever, anime/manga [referring to Digimon sig]

Shilin's Blackbird: Veloce


www.ashen-ray.com (http://www.ashen-ray.com) I cropped a lot of images from her manga site, as I recall it was from 'Afraid of Her' chapter cover and some others from 'The Sorcerer's House' wouldn't remember it's somewhat of a long story with too many frames

Well it wasn't easy at all

is it ok to use the manga image from the cover of the dvd? im pretty sure it was used in the manga, im just not sure where and cant find a scan of it.Not sure what you mean with "manga on the cover of the DVD" ... as far as I know manga is a japanese comic (to make it short) and it has nothing to do with anime (japanese style cartoon). O_o;;
But since DVDs are not manga I guess it's not allowed. O_o;;

can we use the cover art from the manga?Sure, go ahead ... that's still a part of the manga ;)

EDIT: Nespa ... the page you linked me to doesn't give me access permission and I can't see the source. Can you upload the source on AF please ... thank you. ^_^

04-17-2007, 05:12 PM
Like the cover art for the dvd, i think it was the same as the cover art for the manga. It doesnt matter anymore anyway because i scrapped the idea lol, i think i have a pretty good idea on the go which ill post up as soon as its done XD


here is my submission

Can it be a colored manga image?

04-17-2007, 10:34 PM
Can it be a colored manga image?

Thats my question as well, also, do have to scan it yourself? Or could you take it from say a search engine like Photobucket?

04-17-2007, 11:06 PM
Here's my entry:

And the Naruto image is from here: http://planetrenders.net/renders/displayimage.php?pos=-6448

It's part of the cover for volume 8 I think...

04-18-2007, 08:52 AM
Can it be a colored manga image?
Sure ... go with it. The rules say it has to be manga ... and manga doesn't mean black and white. I will accept everything as long as it's original.

Okay,,,, I've never done a contest before, and know I won't place but I join in anyways. Only cause Jagan mentioned it. So, here's my submission for the contest.
Now, I have no means of scanning stuff, so an old AF member sent me the scan for this. Thank you Elfy! I have no clue where she got it, but I think she already took the BG out. But here's the scan too.

EDIT: Okay, I been informed about my submission. That's cool. I had a feeling it would be rejected, so no big lose. So I'll just delete the image from this post. Thank you for not yelling at me.

TheRebel ... the scan you used is not a scan from a manga, but was created by a group called Wave Ride, which makes ecchi images of various anime.

Anyway ... I can't accept sigs created by using non manga images, I'm sorry.

04-21-2007, 10:21 AM
:D here's my entry... it is my first time to join any contests...

This is my FIRST contest! Whoo! DiD had a non-lazy moment. So anyways. Like. Yeah. Here. ._. Keep in mind, this is my FIRST signiture for competitive reasons ever, so it sucks. It's from SAIKANO: She, The Ultimate Weapon. They're both manga images, one from a scroll, the other a cover. So yeah.

We will allow them since the root is the same, just from a different culture.

BTW Eraiza ... your submission doesn't seem to exist on PhotoBucket ... please check the link you gave.

My entryyy~

Scan found here... http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/6896/lovecelebv03c12p000ais0.jpg

Or well... actually not. It was found in Shojomagic's Myspace, groupforum - thread. But the link was ... awfully long. I right-clicked the picture -> "show image" and then looked at the url in the http://www bar thing (whatever the name is). But if you really want me to post it... heh, then I will. xD
