Tiffu/Joe Wedding Banner Contest

Post by Tiff » Thu Jun 07, 2007 8:27 pm

HERE COMES THE BRIIIIDE...

XD The theme of this banner contest is Weddings!

You may use a picture that's either manga or anime based, but your theme must portray some sort of wedding picture. You may use any character (Usagi and Mamoru, inner or outer senshi, etc), so long as they come from a wedding-themed picture or dress in an obvious wedding fashion.

Rules:

1) Your banner must contain any wedding-themed sailor moon character/couple. You may add text if you want to make your banner unique.

2) Banner must be 300 x 137 in size and in GIF, JPG, or PNG 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) .....¬_¬ don't even make me repeat it.

THE DEADLINE IS SATURDAY, JUNE 23.

Prizes are as follows:

3rd: Banner displayed June 24-July 7, avatar made by me.
2nd: Banner displayed July 8-21, avatar made by me.
1st: Banned displayed July 22-Aug. 4 (the day of the wedding!)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! (The spring contest was a tad disappointing, let's get those entries, in people!) I specifically extended this deadline to be two weeks!


Here are a few image sources:

http://serenitatis.com/ - A GREAT usagi/mamoru website. There's even a section devoted entirely to wedding pictures.

http://www.mangastyle.net - A wonderful artbook resource...I know for sure there's a least a couple wedding images, located here: http://serenitatis.com/galleries/chapel/

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.

This is my first banner.

I took the image from a website that Tiff provided. Then I put a red hue in the picture, and used a sponge remove tool on it, which is why the picture is black and white, but Usagi and Mamoru still have color in their skin. Then I took the original picture, erased the background, and used a transparency tool, and enlarged the picture in the corner.

Then I did a google image search for Utena roses. And then the picture looked like it looks now. ^^

Oh yeah, and I did the text in MS Paint.

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.

Tempest, your banner is so pretty *_*. I always loved that image.

Okay, so, I don't usually make graphics or anything. But I was playing around and managed to make something. So here is my entry:

What I lack in skill I make up for in... eh... posting links.

Stupid question...can we shorten it to "SMU Forums" if needed?
