Banner of the Week
Theme: Vector


Ok, this weeks theme is a little bit difficult, so just do your best and see where that takes you. :D

Vector, is a hard thing to explain, but luckily Ana gave me this link to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_graphics), remember google is your friend. :)

Credits for this theme goes to Ruiizu-bozu... She also left us this tutorial (http://fc05.deviantart.com/fs28/f/2008/119/e/5/Hatsune_Miku_Vector_Tutorial_by_Jounin_Neji.png).. ..:D



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.

PS. If you have a banner only with an stock images, then post a link to the original images, and do not use pre-made banners.


Yours sincerely XOXO ♥Angela♥
The Deadline for this contest is the 11th of August

Actually, shapes usually come into it.

And you didn't? xD

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can only see two banners in this thread that will pass as vector so far.

EDIT

Example of a vector sig.

And just adding a facce, doensn't make it nicer.

Tombi
08-09-2009, 03:40 PM
Yes, but it's rude for you to tell someone they didn't make their signature vector when you didn't do it yourself. It's called hypocrisy. =/

Alright, I'll correct you.

You are wrong. I agree with Caitlin, there are only two vector sigs in this whole competition. She 'doesnsn't adding a facce' to make it nicer, it's the style of the banner.

All these are examples of non-vector signatures.

It's an inside joke.

OK just because all of ours dont look EXACTLY like the others doesnt mean they are not vectors.

You all use the same tutorial.
so what if they are a little differsnt.
At least mine isnt the same thing as everyone else.

I've never seen 3D images used in Vector banners.

Actually going back to my classes in college. You can't create 3D Vector images.
I can give further proof once I get back into college.

Then they didn't teach you well. I've made 3d vector images using Maxon Cinema 4D. The concept of those being vecotrs is the material shader used.

Guys, are I to believe my own eyes, your fighting over who's banner is vector and who isn't.... If you have nothing nice to say then don't bother saying anything at all!

I will not tolerate any sort of arguing or insulting the work of others, as long as I'm hostess there will be no arguing or demeaning comments about a entry... The next person to carry on this silly argument will be disqualified, you hear that..!

Does it make you all feel better to tell other's they are not following the theme, by doing so you might as well be mini modding, because both are equally annoying ...

Everyone tried they're best, they put time and effort into they're entry... Now this theme is as hard as can be and the fact that they tried means everything, not everyone is a graphics expert, some here considerably new at graphics, and deserve better treatment then this..


I can tell you this, all the entry's so far will be added to the poll seeing as they tried, they put hard work into trying to following this extremely hard theme, and some are just scratching the surface of vector while others are vector...

Does it make you feel better to diminish on other people's work, people that you can see are considerably less talented to you, do you need to rub it into their faces.....



hey can someone ratemy banner and if it is correct

If I were you wouldn't ask for that, it looks like they are angry and biggering.. So you'll probably just get a mean rude feedback that you could have done without..

I advise you to take a look at the tutorial in the first post....

okay what. The theme is vector. Not "best attempt at it". You wouldn't let a non-sprite banner through in a sprite theme because they "tried hard" at it, would you?.
If you're going to do that then dump the whole vector theme.
edit: if you disqualify me for what i just said, then do so. frankly, right now I don't care.

Tombi and Ruiizu, you two are being huge pricks and elitist jerks. Seriously, grow up. You don't need to be such a royal dick to correct someone. drr hrrr xDDDDD
I didn't mean to be a prick. If I offended, then I do apologise.
but srsly.

Ok, here is a banner I made in my new computer, using gimp, seeing I don't have PS in this computer yet (just got it Friday)...
http://i27.tinypic.com/xepx8x.png


I had an amazing Nel banner that I was working on, but gimp shut down, I was major pissed and then I just picked a render that didn't need any cropping, maybe not the best render, the Nel one was better but it needed cropping, seeing I'm used to using a mouse, I only have a touch thingy on this new computer, and I was in no mood to crop the same picture twice....
Here it is http://www.deviantart.com/download/67766200/Nel__Bleach_Ch_296_collab_by_Maganius.png

I'll just use it on some other banner later....

Wow I don't have any cool font's nor brushes in my new laptob, so my entry is pretty much horrible....

Anyway I tried doing Vector, but seeing I'm not 100% on vector... I just tried to follow the guide the best I could...

Okay, I think people aren't really trying to be mean about telling others what a Vector banner/sig/tag is. And, no one is diminishing anyone. =\ I see people trying to point out what is a vector banner and what-not. I mean, we have a pretty nice tut in the front page for some to follow. And there's a page (er, not my best find) on what vector is. Some people aren't making correct banners to fit "Vector theme".
Does it make you all feel better to tell other's they are not following the theme, by doing so you might as well be mini modding, because both are equally annoying ...
Mini modding? What? O..o
Telling others thier banners don't fit the theme isn't REALLY mini modding. x..x; It's pointing out that it just doesn't fit the theme. Like I said, we have two links that might help you understand what "vector" is, so maybe you can make a banner that fits the theme.

Everyone tried they're best, they put time and effort into they're entry... Now this theme is as hard as can be and the fact that they tried means everything, not everyone is a graphics expert, some here considerably new at graphics, and deserve better treatment then this..
People did try their best. =\ But, like I said, some didn't fit the theme, but it doesn't meant they did work hard on it. And, okay so we're pointing out wrongs to people on their banner so maybe they understand it's not a vector banner?

OK just because all of ours dont look EXACTLY like the others doesnt mean they are not vectors.

You all use the same tutorial.
so what if they are a little differsnt.
At least mine isnt the same thing as everyone else.

Well, we know it's not like the rest of the banners, but something about your banner lacks what is needed to fit "vector" theme. And Jose and ragnajacob lack something, too.

Just because we follow one tut, doesn't mean everyone's banners look the same. Just the style to fit the theme. Also, Angela, letting EVERY banner, even those who didn't follow the theme right, isn't really fair. =\ Those who didn't follow then theme shouldn't be entered. The goal was to fit the theme.
