Hi all and welcome to the 3rd PE2K Banner of the Week Competition!

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: 116
Maximum width of banner: 477
Stock images allowed?: Yes
Animation allowed?: Yes
Theme: Anime

Anything above the specified size will not be accepted nor will it if it does not follow the theme. Please try to follow the theme as best you can.

No more than one entry per person will be accepted. The maximum number of entries are 12 due to the limited amount of poll options available for voting. Once 12 entries have been entered no more will be accepted. A voting poll will immediately open after that. April 8 will be the deadline for all entries unless there have been 12 by that time. Voting will also start on April 8 and will end on April 15.

You have one week to enter and one week to vote.

And don't forget to have fun! Please do not hold back if you do not have an advanced graphic program. There have been numerous graphic arts that have been done even in paint.

Good luck to you all and let the Competition begin!

Well here's mine:

http://img131.exs.cx/img131/4905/megaman8ab.gif

I don't really watch much anime besides pokemon and sometimes megaman. So megaman was my choice. I kind of followed sk's tut by putting a small caption at the bottom but I faded it at both sides. And there's a small animation to the right.

If some strange advertisements come up instead of the pictures, that means my host is down, so just ignore

That's awesome how you put that animation into the banner like that.

And who are you thanking? I am guessing Bio since he's the one who did DBZ.

MystiKal
04-05-2005, 01:42 AM
Yeah he's thanking me and all Sk did was add like a movie animation to it, I love your BG Sk. Looks like someone got my vote.

Nefarious
04-05-2005, 01:50 AM

Yeah I know but it's still pretty cool.

The bg is cool too but the animation is what draws your attention most. I think I have a set vote too.

Yea, VT, I meant thank you. I wasn't going to do animatrix, until you chose DBZ though. Ty everyone else for the compliments, but don't feel discouraged; you guys still have like 3 days.

btw, I had to slice mine into 5 pictures to prevent quality loss (couldn't find anything about it against the rules). You might notice around the animation there is a lot of pixelation, while in the rest of the banner, there is none. That's cause I made everything png except for the animation. You guys should try it some time. (Especially if the picture size is big, as in past the kb limit, and you want to make it seem smaller :wink:)

anyways, for the coding, I can't figure out a good way to do it that would be easier than to just quote my original post with the picture, unless of course..... hm... no, no easy way to show it without stretching the page a bit



All of your banners seem pretty good, but tough to compare when not side-by-side...

No there is no rule against it. As long as the overall banner is the right dimensions. that's actually a neat way of doing it.

I totally forgot about Medabots >_<

I might re-enter, but using animation is kinda SK's thing, at least for this round.
