Hello and welcome to the second weekly PE2K banner Competition. Well actually it is every other week but whatever.

I will be your host, Nefarious, and with that said lets get this underway!

Here are the rules for this week:

Maximum height of banner: 128
Maximum width of banner: 558
Stock images allowed?: Yes
Animation allowed?: Yes
Theme: Your favourite video game

Anything above the specified size will not be accepted nor will it if it does not follow the theme.

No more than one entry per person will be accepted. Oh yeah and have fun! If you don't have photoshop don't hold back from entering. Many of us have been amazed by banners made in paint.

You have one week to complete your banner. So that means you have until March 25 to finish it. Voting for the best banner by members will start on March 25 and end on April 1. A new competition will also be starting on April 1.

Good Luck to everyone.

EDIT: I forgot to say that there are only allowed 12 entries due to the limited amount of poll options. Plaese, once you see 12 entries do not submit any more. Once there are 12 then voting will start immediately after that. If there are not 12 entries by March 25 then voting will start then.

It's good, apart from the white bit to the left of Neo, if you didn't have that bit it would be great! (IMO) Well done anyway

the white part was put there on purpose -_- i wanted to make it contrast from the dark green.

Not exactly my most favorite but I couldn't pull off the paper mario look. Well it's on my top favorite list anyway.

Well, I felt like I should enter, even though I know I'm going to get pwned - especially now that I saw VT's Metroid one. X_X

Oh well, here goes.

Vote for me - I think the voting will be going on on April the First, so why not? :tongue3:

Can you say MS Paint?

AHAHA, Donkey Kong Pwns. I like it.

Still thinking of what game to do, and only 5 days to do it in...>_<

I might withdraw mine to do a different one. The one I did isn't all that great. I was going to do Zelda but I couldn't find a cool pic of Zelda. Anyone know where to get one?

Thanatos
03-20-2005, 07:33 PM
www.google.com

Best places for images :wink:

Or look for the official art.

Here is my entry.... but it didn't turn out the way I planned... lol. The moe I kept screwing with it, the worse it got, but I tweaked it a bit and played around with layer modes and color balance until I got the above... still not the greatest... but I don't have a rendering program... do I? lol.

I got screwed on the font.... I couldn't get it to work... so live with what I have... lol.

No, stick with the Sonic one! Well, I liked it, anyway. :tongue3:

@ Matthew: I tend to agree with you on that. I'm not sure that the font really works.

I think it's really pretty...o_O. I love that sheik pic, same one I used for my sheik picture.

Well, here is my entry. Nowhere near as good as VT's...In fact, my entry just stinks this week. I'm out of my creative..ness.

http://i149.exs.cx/img149/3629/week2bannerfinal9ii.png

Golden Sun, the Lost Age. My favourite game. I just wish I could find the game... :oops:

Holy Crap!!! I forgot I friggin made a GS banner XD lol....

I withdraw my Sheik one and I am entering this:

I found that same pic and was going to use it. I was experimenting with it in a background but decided to go with sonic instead. Well yours looks way better than the way mine turned out. I was going to do zelda fading into sheik but couldn't find a decent picture of zelda. Oh well might as well stick with sonic. :tongue:

Well, I might add to my Felix picture (the brown haired guy). But I'm otherwise happy with my result.

I really shouldn't have bothered, but it was too tempting. I did these quick so they're not very good.

Just wanted to let you know that you can only have one entry so please choose one. :wink:

03-22-2005, 02:17 PM
I like the fusion one too, but like ST said, you are only allowed one entry....

Nefarious
03-22-2005, 02:23 PM
Oh and I forgot to tell everyone. There are allowed only 12 entries because of the limited amount of poll options. I am so sorry I forgot to mention this sooner. It looks like there are already 10 entries. So only 2 more are allowed. I willa dd this to the first post.

Heh, I at least got 1 vote last time... :oops:

EDIT: And after tons of work, and mastering the Scan Lines technique, I present to you:

Thats very good nice job.

Can I vote or is I just the people who enter who can vote?

Matthew
03-22-2005, 11:51 PM
No.... poll is open to all, but those who enter can't vote for themselves.... other than that, feel free to vote when the polls open.

.AzureLight
03-23-2005, 12:16 AM
Hmm... do the polls open after 1 more person enters?

Nefarious

Yes it does. There's no use in keeping the contest open when no more entries are being accepted. The dates from now on may vary.

.AzureLight
03-23-2005, 12:31 AM
Crap... let's say, I want to change mine... but a person enters... like, let's say, in 2 minutes... :dazed:

I need to fix mine up but I don't have time now... anways, I got to go! See ya'll later!

Instead of a poll,how about we just post who we're voting for,like MOTM.

Oh right! Ok, Metroid Fusion. :biggrin: I worked more on that one. (and played it a LOT)

It's more difficult to tally that way.... And it would lose interest fast for the creator. Look at Feb MOTM... they still haven't been tallied yet.... at least last time I checked.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. It's easier to keep track with a poll. If I could raise the amount of poll options I would.

X_X I haven't lost interest, I just lost the time on the days I wanted to do it. Not much longer to wait now, I promise...

Back on topic, uh...somebody hurry up and enter. :tongue3:
