Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand now it's time for Kisu's Choice!

To recap for those who don't know, the Kisu's Choice Award isn't my favourite banner, or which one I thought was best, or anything like that. It's which banner showed amazing amounts of creativity and design, but which could still use some work.

I proudly give the Kisu's Choice Award for Halloween/Fall '06 to...

Umino!

The choice of image used, specificaly the melting Senshi, was very creative and the blending with the background looked great. In fact, the only thing that kept me from voting it higher in the list was the text. It came off as a bit too bright, and took away from the banner as a whole. Keep practicing and playing with the program you've been using, and you're sure to place!

Great work everybody, and I seriously mean that. The choices were very tough this year, as everybody really put a lot of work into their banner. Make the Christmas banner even harder, everybody!

Yay! Thank you for the kind words, and suggestions. I have a hard time with text in graphics. ^^;

I'll upload the icon as soon as I get home. (We can't view any picture links at school)

Anou. . . I see my 3d place banner was put up today, but since there was a delay in the judging, and then in posting the 2d place banner, I don't think it's fair for mine to go up yet. Blackat's hasn't had the full 10 days and if someone has to lose time, it should be the third place banner. Maybe hers should go up again for 3 or 4 more days?

Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

....Wah? I'm confuzzled. I still see my banner up anyway? Maybe it's just my internet, or maybe Tiff took your advice, Sailorasteroid?

Yes, I took his advice.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.
