Who can make the best banner? This is your chance to show us your stuff. Neo Pikachu won last time, but will he win again?

*You will have from now until April 20th to enter a banner (1-2 per person).
*Post your banner here to be entered in the contest.
*When the two weeks are up, a new thread will start with a poll and all banners will be listed. You get one vote and the person with the highest number of votes will win.

First place: $5,000 and any evolving Pokemon at the lowest evolution. (ex. Charmander, but not Sudowoodo).
Second place: $2,000

Guidelines: The banner must at least say "URPG" or "The Ultra Pokemon RPG" or something of that nature somewhere. It can be any color, any design you want. It must be no bigger than the banner size specified by the Pe2k Signature rules.

In addition to winning, the banner will be placed in the Rules Thread at the top for everyone to see. Something worth playing for.

Good luck to everyone and have fun in this friendly contest.

~Jack~

Ah, that's alright. I kind of wanted the pinkish color to be a bit more red, but everytime I tried to make it darker, it just became purple. So, I just kept it pink and went for a kind of cloudy sky look.

Well, just know that while some brushes look great combined with others, other times they will look abysmal.

But, I would DEFINITELY have to say, this banners this time around totally blow apart the banners from the last competition. My old banner with Latios and Latias looks like dirt compared to some of these new ones.

The level of competition is insane this time around...

pretty nice banner lan, but 5 hours? =/




for now my favorite is still matt's




but it seem's i'm different from all of you. You all seem to believe it will be a close race. Sure, there are a lot of entries, but most of them I would definitely not want as a banner for the URPG
