Woot, G-mods can't enter! But, there's still Thanatos and D.2 is pretty good.

At least I have a chance of winning now! :oops:

I'll work on mine later, when I'm in the mood for banner making! :cool:

EDIT: Wait... mods/admins... like of VPP or of the Forum? Either no Matthew, or no DC... :oops:

Don't forget me. :susp: lol anyway I'll be entering too. Expect mine soon.

Oh, and ST is here too... oh well... maybe I won't really win... I'll just need to pull off an amazing pwnage banner. Like my 5 hour URPG banner... that still didn't win cause... I dunno why.. :dazed:

XD

Good luck to you all! And to myself, lol!

Matthew
06-26-2005, 09:19 PM
Wait... what? I can't enter... what a pity :(

Or do you mean mods of the VPP?

The Elite Ygseto
06-27-2005, 12:10 AM
No, Max, DC, and I can't enter. Everyone else is good to go.

.AzureLight
06-27-2005, 12:24 AM
Uh-oh... that means I won't have to worry about DC pwning me... but I still have Matthew, and VT, and ST, and... etc... :dazed:

Lol... I'll win for sure this time!

My entry is... well... taking long to look right... let's just put it like this:

Lan is not very good at this... :dazed:

~*Alex*~
06-27-2005, 01:31 AM
Good luck, you all.

I don't even know why I entered. Escpecially if ST's going to participate.

The Elite Ygseto
06-27-2005, 02:39 AM
Lan, VT doesn't do VPP anymore. You don;t have to worry about losing to him.

.AzureLight
06-27-2005, 02:42 AM
Ah... what a relief.

Hopefully, I'll pull this off. Now,

Here is my entry, for now... at least until I can muster up the energy to make a better one.... :susp:

Thanatos

o_O...pink...very pink...

Not bad Matthew. I quite like it.

However, there are always more entries to come :wink:

Matt
06-27-2005, 12:06 PM
Is it Virtual Pokemon Pet, Or Virtual Pet Pokemon? I was just going by the first VPP thread that said Pokemon Pet...

Thanatos
06-27-2005, 01:49 PM
Actually, D.2 is quite right. It's Virtual Pokemon Pet.

XD

Matthew
06-27-2005, 07:54 PM
Eh... if it wins, I'll change it... but until then, I think that is a subtle mistake... heh.

.AzureLight
06-27-2005, 11:12 PM
I'm horrible at this.

If I make a better one, I'll change my entry...

I like it Mathew, just to bright.

06-30-2005, 08:32 PM
I have inspiration! I'm making mine sorta like this banner:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/LaN_scyther_66/lan.jpg

EDIT: All done. Scrap my other entry now!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/LaN_scyther_66/vpp_good.jpg

Should I fade Pichu in a bit?

The Elite Ygseto
06-30-2005, 09:39 PM
You use that same pattern for everything, you should try somthing new.

.AzureLight
06-30-2005, 09:49 PM
... This time... I used a gradient in the background... with diamond thingy's... I did try something new... :dazed:

*Goes and downloads a millon brush packs, that don't resemble each other.*

How about that? Now nothing I make will ever look the same! :cool:

Ok... I'll get to work... :oops:

Matt
07-01-2005, 04:56 PM
I made mine brighter, with a more visible Pikachu, and some other minor changes (not that anyone noticed I made one in the first place).

.AzureLight
07-01-2005, 05:10 PM
Here, fixed mine up a bit.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/LaN_scyther_66/vpp_good2.jpg

Is it better Seto? It's different! :oops:

The Elite Ygseto
07-03-2005, 10:50 PM
Eh, pichu looks out of place though, why not use a diffrent pokemon than Matthew?

.AzureLight
07-03-2005, 10:58 PM
... Pichu is perfectly suitible for VPP... anyways, I had the idea first I bet! :oops:

Matt
07-03-2005, 11:38 PM
I was the first to use a Pika (Pikachu, not pichu, however), but everybody seemed to ignore my banner (twice), and I got absolutely no comments on it.

The Elite Ygseto
07-04-2005, 05:33 AM
I like it. I think the pikachu could get lost though, I like the egg.

I hope more people enter.

I also have another one with a normal border, so please tell em if it needs to be changed :oops: Enjoy!

Out of all the entries so far, I must say, I like D.2's the most. There's just something about it... and the stock used is good because Pikachu appears to be giving someone an egg.

Matthew
07-04-2005, 09:20 AM
Only thing I don't like about D2's is that the Pikachu is too subtle... I could barely see it there.

Matt
07-04-2005, 11:43 AM
It's not like I lost the stock, I could always make it brighter. I tried once, but I guess it didn't work, but I can fix it easily. FShadow, I thikn the two black blocks on the top left and bottom right corners are unneeded. It'd look better with a regular border.

Sky Girl
07-04-2005, 03:40 PM
FShadow, I like your idea of using the jhoto starters, but overall the banner's kinda plain. no offense, but i think you could do better. :oops:

Thi is my entry. if anyone is wondering whats up with me using the trainer sprite of your rival in silver, its because in the japanese Pokemon manga he has a Sneasel

http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a185/pikachukazu/VPP.png

Its my first banner so it may not be very good.

I made this with MSpaint. i have a question. I see a lot of Banners with cool backrounds and was wonering if you can make those with photoshop. if so i am definitely getting it.

The Elite Ygseto

Photoshop costs 600 bucks, just so you know.

These all very good!

My Scores:

Ionem - 5/10
I like the images, but its dull and black. Not like the VPP.

Alex - 5/10
The images are all in their boxes. I do like the text though. XD

D2 - 10/10
Very good, but the pika is to transparent.

Matthew - 10/10
Very good, just need to change that text. XD

Lan - 5/10, 5/10, and 6/10
They all are kinda strange. And the pika looks out of place.

FShadow - 7/10
If you didn't have such a dark backround, this would of been my fave.

Pika57 - 5/10
If the backround and text wheren't so dull the would of been much better.

Pika57
07-10-2005, 10:33 PM

My Scores:
Note: I'm a harsher marker then Ygseto, but I do not mean any insult by my grades, I still love you all :tongue:

Ionem - 5/10
An average banner, with average stock. No background at all. Boring.

Alex - 2/10
Same as Ionem, only the stock is worse, and the text is out of place. Fire effect goes beyond the top, losing the fire quality.

D2 - 10/10
I <3 this banner. I personally believe the stock, though faded, looks fine where it is. Animation is simple, yet good.

Matthew - 9/10
I <3 this banner too, but I gotta set the break between D2 and you Matthew. I like D.2's more, but this banner is still fantastic.

Lan - 5/10, 5/10, and 5/10
Average, average and average. Boring, and the stock is horribly out of place.

FShadow - 8/10
Honourable mention, because I love the Johto Starters. More colour in the background, I probably would have chosen this.

Pika57 - 5/10
Interesting concept...but you're only a paint user I can see. Not terrible...but not good. A+ for effort.

Neptune's Disciple
07-11-2005, 08:16 AM
Yay! Congrats D.2. It really was the best entry IMO, well done :biggrin:

Thanatos

I wouldn't call this official yet.

Max is the owner and creator, along with Ygseto.

He's still gotta put his input in.

Ionem - 4/10
The Pictures look very clean... But the theme just doesn't appeal to me.


Alex - 2/10
Thanx for your entry. O.o


D2 - 10/10
This is very well made. It looks very clean, and the animation gives it a plus.


Matthew - 8/10
Very good Matt. Alittle bright though.


Lan - 6/10, 5/10, and 5/10
Those are all pretty good. You just need to work on your placing bit more.


FShadow - 7/10
I really enjoy the font, and the layought. I just dont like your picture choice.


Pika57 - 1/10
Lets not beat around the bush here...

*With some minor changes, I'd have to say that D.2 is the winner.*

Congratulations to Defence 2! You are the winner of the firstever VPP banner contest! You get a Legnedary of your choice, and a the banner will be at the top of the VPP thread untill next contest.

Matt
07-11-2005, 03:53 PM
Thanks Ygseto. I'd have to check, but I'm just about ready for my legendary. I decided that, though Mew is special, Rukario is cooler. And you speeled a lot of stuff wrong in the new VPP thread. You may want to check that out. Not just the pokemon names, but a lot of other stuff too. Sorry, it just bothers me when formal threads have spelling mistakes.
