We haven't had a contest in awhile so here's a small one for fun!

Its beginning to get warmer and Spring is coming. But being in Michigan I don't get to see the Sun for months on end! So I need some inspiration.

This is where you come in! Make a wallpaper with the sun in it somewhere. It can be on a shirt, shining in the sky, reflected off of a lake.. ANYWHERE!

The wallpaper has to at least 1024 x 768
Wallpaper must contain the sun in it somewhere
Wallpaper must have your name and www.animegalleries.net (http://www.animegalleries.net) on it
Wallpaper must be submitted using this thread and the boards file attachment feature
All Entries must be submitted on or before February 28, 2006 board time.

First Place will get 2000 Rupees and a banner for their signature
Second Place will get 1000 Rupees and a banner for their Signature
Third Place will get 500 Rupees and a banner for their signature
Honorable Mentions will each get 250 Rupees

By submitting your wallpaper you are giving your permission, if selected, for it to be uploaded to the Wallpaper gallery of Animegalleries.net

So get wallpapering!!

Does sunshine count? I think I have a picture for that, but the sun isn't in it. Just good ol' shine. o.o;

I have to see the big ball of fire somewhere. It can be a reflection of it, I just have to be able to say "oh thats a sun!"

This is an awesome idea, Minako. It's too bad that it's still winter for you.
My name's really...can't think of a word...Uh, you can't exactly see my name clearly because of the sun. Sorry. ^_^; Is it alright if I added something extra, or does that get me disqualified?

Edit::: Size=All better now! :::

you may change and edit your wallpaper up until the due date. Also please make sure that you change the size. The contest requires a wallpaper no smaller than 1024x786, yours is presently 640x480. Please resize to be qualified.

Here's the wallpapers I made--there are some really good ones so far!

Tch.. -.-; I didn't have time to make any changes. Anyway.. Here's what I got.

02-28-2006, 10:14 PM
Ah well here's my entry ^_^;
Finally finished.

Fun contest. Good luck everyone!

Ah... I'm late... O.O

Well... I rushed this in to make the deadline.

I just want to say that the white thing in the upper right hand corner is my sun.(Yeah I know it sucks)

Anyway, it's pretty simple because I did this all in the few hours that I had. Not to mention I master rebooted my computer and had to reinstall all of my brushes and fonts. (200+ brushes, 4000+ fonts) Well I wouldn't even be able to participate in this contest if I didn't master reboot it so I'm not complaining. =D

Anyway, here it is.

I used Fushigi Yuugi as my anime and Tasuki as the main picture.
It's 1024x768
And it's large... About 500kb, I just chose the best quality and saved. Sorry to the 56k-ers
Made in Photoshop CS2

Anyway, enjoy.
