The Banner of the Week 13
Theme: Aprils Fool



Okay wow we had 12 entries last week, wow that's a lot, well here we are week number 13, this weeks theme is Aprils Fool, so go nuts, I mean it, go nuts. Make some cheeky prankster banners, make funny hilarious banners, this one is a thinker so you better should start thinking.:happy:




The Basics
This is basically a banner contest: create a banner using the theme posted above and post it here. You are given 7 days to submit the banner. You may edit your submission at any time before the deadline. You may only enter 1 banner per week.
Once the deadline is reached, the banners will be put in a poll, and the members of PE2K will vote for which one they like the best.
The banner can be any size within a reasonable limit, but you must follow the theme given, or the banner will not be entered into the contest (If we cannot see how the topic applies, you will be given the chance to explain yourself).
Please follow all of the forum rules, or you will be disqualified and/or warned.

This one kinda.. sucked. I tried animation, but it didn't work as well as I would have liked. But I think it's funny. ^0^

Actually, it is not just adding a border.

Overlay, duplicate image, blur, ovarlay burger, try to add red tint. Gradient map incandecent. Deep Blue overlay, sharpen, make some of Ronalds hair lighter to show a change.
The reason why it looks like the original? Because it is a STOCK SIGNATURE. The signature was made using an original stock. Not doing brushes.

But if it really pisses you off, then I need to update my laptop so I can redownload my brushes, then make a new signature.

Really? I can see many many differences in the tag as opposed to the stock image.

Frankly Angela, you don't seems to have much knowledge on graphics and I have never seen you make a half-decent tag yourself so disqualifying someone on the sole basis that you don't see any difference is highly unfair to said someone and quite moronic on your part.

Excuse me, but by adding a transparent burger and an arm that can be found lower on the photo that does not make it that much different from the stock photo, that banner is next to plagiarism, I see that he/she edited the images, but not enough, not enough for it to be entered in the contest.


And what gives you the rights to bash on my graphic skills, I haven't posted on PE2K any of my work for a while now, so you can't start bashing on my graphic skills, and besides my graphic skills are not of any importance in this matter, I say this banner is out and it is out.

In the rules, you said nothing about entering Stock banners/signatures. And, they didn't just add a border. They changed the lighting, and use the stock image transparent a little for effects.

You never said the entries NEEDED to require anything. It just needed to be part of the theme and it had to be a banner. Nothing else. And just because it LOOKS close to the original photo, doesn't mean the artist didn't put any work into it.

I really think it's unfair what you did, in my point of view.

It's totally different than the original stock, and how can it be plagiarism? ._. Just read Azure's post and Ana's. They both explained it well. There are obvious gradient maps and other effects in his version, and many people who use stocks do the same thing.

This is your contest, but disqualifying fefe because it looks like the original isn't an excuse,

I agree with Anastasia-R. You don't have to add a bunch of colors and brushes to a pic for it to be a good banner. His banner is changed more on the technical side of graphic art.

I would vote to say that his banner should be added to the contest but it looks like you've already made up your mind.

EDIT: and this is what I get for typing to slow... Glad you changed your mind. ^_^

I changed my mind because I saw that the rules that I have for the contest on this forum is not the same as the rules I made on another forum (I got confused), thanks to Ana I saw that I was going against my own rules, and I will be editing the rules in week 15, I would like to apologize to fefe, I forgot how non-strict the rules are for this contest.

Tay last weeks contest is closed, has been since yesterday, there is already another contest up, week number 14. It's a nice banner but your 1 day to late, the new theme is Vendetta.

Anyone ever heard of deleting your posts if you post to late?


Be aware that I'm going to be adding new rules for week 15, not only does it have to match the theme, the banner cant be just an images that has had some minor editing.

I think banners are more personal if they have an background made by the creator, not just an stock images. :wink:

I think I may have posted that I did not download any brushes, so most of my signatures have a stock image to act as a background, or to be an original stock signature

Here is an example:
http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s140/fefe31619/Thedarkside.png
^That is an original stock image. I did not make anything but instead created effects. One of them is Guassian blur at around ten, erase the Focal point (Rena) at 100%, and erase the backround at 60% to add a bit of Depth.^

http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s140/fefe31619/Konoha.png
^In this one however, I made the ninja head protector from scratch. To further support it, I used the Leaf Village background stock to show that the person leaving is a Rogue Ninja. Once again I did the blur thing and tried a drop shadow, but I messed up on the Kunai knife so I need to edit it.^

http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s140/fefe31619/Liar.png
^Another example of the first one, however in this one. You can see with the dark blue background which can tend to have tons of effects dependant on what you do. I went crazy and added whatever I wanted to it.

Basically, since I do not use any brushes, I tend to do extra with my effects, the ronald banner I used I found the background was far too light and hardly any work could be cone to change it (I couldve overlayed the ORIGINAL joker in, but it was too damn light.) So to show a sign of change to avoid any uproars, I decided to add the burger and make stripes of ronald's hair.

Your opinion on banners made using stock images doesn't apply to the graphics community as a whole. While you may host this contest, changing the rules so that the entries fit your personal requirements for what a tag should look like is stupid. I highly suggest that you don't add the rule.

Angela, I don't think you should add that rule. So what if it's a stock banner? It's still a banner. Graphic banners don't need to look so "amazing" or "full of graphics". It's still graphic art and a banner.

Just because you think it's "more personal" if someone made the background themselves or added more graphic effects, doesn't mean it SHOULD be a rule. It's just your opinion.

Pretty much, Azure said it for lots of us. We really suggest that shouldn't be a rule.

I may consider if you give me three good reasons without insulting me.

I hope you have nothing against a rule called no pre-made banners, because that's a rule that will take effect in BOTW 15.

I do like how you use the dark blue in the 2nd one, and is that Sasukes head band?

If you guys are not happy with the fact that I'm thinking off banning banners that are based upon an stock images only, then I might reconsider that rule, but no pre-made banners will be taking effect (I hope so far no one has been using pre-made banners), and I won't be backing off with that, tho I might reconsider stock banners, I kinda see now that it is kinda unfair for me to ask people to download a ton's of brushes.

i think you shouldnt be aloud to have an image...put text and a border and cal it your own banner....

But if you have an image backgound, as long as you make it your own and add stuff... then it should be ok.

alot of people find backgrounds that go very well with the banner "theme" without making them theirselves.

Personally.... it is hard making good backgrounds on paint... but if i had to i would but i would reather take a couple different backgrounds and mix them togeher and make some transparent and on top of one another to create a HUGE colorful background.

hope i helpped ;)
