March 2010 Graphics Challenge

  1. Mirk, Erendira and I have decided the graphic for this month's challenge will be, icon (100 x 100),wallpaper (1024 x 768) a banner (600 x 400).signatures (600/500 x 200)
  2. Use any Orlando characters, and the Lyrics from the song "Holding Out For A Hero", to create wallpapers. Use one line, one word, the whole song or anything inbetween. Be creative and twist the meaning of the words to fit any character you choose. You don't have to stick to the exact meaning of the song if you have a character that does not fit.
  3. The challenge will run for about three weeks and then we will have one week to vote.
  4. The vote will be via a member poll, two votes per voter. (with the possibility of more depending on turnout)
  5. The three graphics with the most votes will be that month's winners.
  6. A winning banner will be posted for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
  7. Entries will be taken until March 24th and the poll will be posted later that same night, time permitting.
  8. There will be a limit of SEVEN entries per person.
  9. Any graphic that does not fall within the size indicated for the challenge will be disqualified, so make sure this month's entries are 1024 x 768 pixels each.
  10. It was decided that these challenges will be ''stills". In other words, no animations. We want to make this as accessible as possible to everyone, and some members may not have advanced into animation.

Happy graphic making everyone! :cheerlead

Kat, Mirk and Lola

As an added interest, we are considering the possibility of a Fan Fiction Challenge in the future, using the entries from this challenge as inspiration for the writers. If it is OK for us to use your entries in this manner, please add "OK to use for FF challenge".

edit: We decided that we were having so much fun that we would up the limit on the entries to seven

Those are both beautiful Lola and Nenya! :clap: Whoever came up with this challenge picked the perfect song. And you guys picked the perfect lines to fit the characters.

Can't wait to see what else everyone does :cheerlead

chocolover March 9th, 2010 12:45 AM

Wonderful work, Lola & Nenya! :worship:
CD, I hope you will join the fun. :nono: :hug:

CaribbeanDreamin March 9th, 2010 01:51 AM

I'm hopelessly lost right now. I've been messing around with PS for about an hour and am not making progress. It's like a foreign language to me at this point.

Anticipating some great stuff from you guys though!

Nenya March 9th, 2010 03:34 PM

Thank you, girls. :grouphug:

CD, I hope you get along with PS and join the fun. It isn´t as difficult as it seems when you start with it.
I´m sure we all had the same problems in the beginning. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

And here is my second one:

chocolover March 9th, 2010 03:56 PM

Absolutly stunning, Nenya! :worship:

CD, hope you will join us soon. It's all about 'learning by doing'. :wink2:

Krazymoonkat March 9th, 2010 06:42 PM

:clap: Wonderful entries, Nenya! :clap::clap: I really like the painted effect the first one has. :clap::clap:

CD, Choco is right, the program is so involved, it is much easier to learn by doing. I'm going to dust off my PS7 and pm you. (it's really not much different than cs2 except for minor details.)

And you Choco? I hope to see something from you soon too.

Tabitha's cat March 9th, 2010 09:19 PM

THey are beautiful Nenya-such a dreamy quality to them. :clap::clap:
