2007 Valentine's Banner Contest

Post by Tiff » Tue Jan 16, 2007 12:21 am

Love-Love contest time!

For the Valentine's contest, I'd like to use the Senshi of Love, Sailor Venus.

You may use a picture of her that's either manga or anime based, but your theme must portray a "senshi of love" theme. I need to be able to see a theme of "love" in the banner. You may use any form of her (Minako civilian form, Venus form, etc)

Rules:

1) Your banner must contain any form of Minako/Sailor Venus, with a "senshi of love"-type theme.

2) Banner must be 300 x 137 in size and in GIF or JPG format. You may submit up to 2.

3) You are allowed to use brushes, backgrounds, and edit any original images. Photoshop filters are fine, and I have no problem if you want to add extra pictures/clip parts. If you use a brush, credit the brushmaker in your post. Please be careful about text and fonts. I MUST be able to read it.

4) The banner needs to say "Sailor Moon Uncensored Forums" and have the url, "http://www.smuncensored.com" (url can be shortened if need be) on it. This must be done in a readable font (this includes size, style, and color)

5) In order to enter, you must have been a member for at least two weeks and an ACTIVE POSTER AS OF TODAY. Anyone who joins the forums after this is NOT ELIGIBLE. This isn't to be mean, but I don't want people joining just for the contest, and we have too many members who have never posted or have only posted once or twice. If you are unsure as to whether you qualify as an "active member", contact me.

OTHER GUIDELINES:

1) Please try to use a readable font. I cannot stress this enough.
2) ...I will smite anybody who doesn't know. >_>

THE DEADLINE IS SATURDAY, JANUARY 20.

Prizes are as follows:

1st: Banner displayed Feb. 4-17, avatar made by me.
2nd: Banner displayed Feb. 18-28, avatar made by me.
3rd: Banned displayed Jan. 21-Feb.3 avatar made by me.

I would like you to upload the banner to your webspace (if you have one) and paste the link here, so that everyone may view your creation. If you do not have webspace, email it to me, and I'll upload it for you. DO NOT POST THE IMAGE ITSELF HERE.

Have fun, and I hope we get a lot of entries! If you have any questions, let me know. ^^

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.

2) CREATIVITY! ;o


I'll start working on mine right now.


EDIT: http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h114/ ... banner.jpg

I thought I'd try a little technique with the banner. I remember one other poster brought this kind of technique up a while back, but I can't remember who it was... Sorry that the picture is kinda blurry, V's especially. @[email protected]

EDIT: Resize:

*kicks Microsoft Picture Manger* I tell it to size things one way, but for some reason it thinks bigger is better so it makes it so >.< I need a new program.

Anywho....I will try to make another one by Saturday. =D

Hey look, everyone! I'm being active. :D

My entry:
http://pictures.greatestjournal.com/use ... 5630/64536
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

Seiusa, your banner is too big. It's 300 x 160, and the requirements are 300 x 137. Please try to fix =D

== Entry ==

A picture from Codename Sailor V, volume one. Minako is on a mission to give Higashi-senpai a love letter, but he is surrounded by a mob of girls. Will her determination waver? *dun dun duuuuun*

I'm so glad I found some time to make an entry! I wish I could've done more. ;_;

Programs: GIMP, IrfanView, MS Paint

Here be my second entry.

I thought I'd get a little creative, and put part of the chorus from The Power of Love in the banner. After all, it's almost Valentine's Day, so you have to believe in the power of love! :lol:

Not exactly THE most creative banner, otherwise... But I'm actually pretty happy with it. It was all done in Corel Photo Paint. Hope it looks all right! XD

My second entry:

It's a lyric from one of Minako's songs [from the live-action version], "C'est la vie."
The Facts of the Animal Kingdom:
"Zebras can bite."
"Snakes say sss."
"Lions chase people."
And of course…”Tigers bite you.”

and seek it’s master Death.
Life may go where Death has trod,
and challenge, like Scheherazade,
he who reigns beneath the sod,
to spare a mortal’s breath.

Sailor Jupiter Rules!

Still don''t know why this sig sucks. And I''ve been spelling sailor wrong for 2 years. Huh.
NEW AND IMPROVED: Now with more Jupiter!
