April 2010 Graphics Challenge



This challenge is open to all OL members, beginners and more experienced. Please join in our fun!



Guidelines:
  1. Mirk, Lola 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), Signature Set (600/500 x 200 plus 100 x 100)
  2. Use any pictures of Orlando, including characters and pap, to create Icons using shapes and saved with transparent backgounds using the PNG file format. Here is a tutorial to help begginers with the process. Be creative and make each entry you submit a different shape. *fonts count as shape options.
  3. The challenge will run for 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 April 22nd and the poll will be posted later that same night, time permitting.
  8. There will be a limit of SEVEN entries per person. (May increase depending on turnout)
  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 100 x 100 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!

Kat, Lola & Mirk

Edit (April 7): Bumped the entry limit up to 7.

You sure are!

Don't be shy to ask questions and don't be afraid to play with and explore the new tools you have learnt. Have you seen the new tut on how to get more options into your pallets? So many shapes, brushes, actiont etc....so little time.

I can't wait to see some creative uses of shapes from everyone!

Great new challenge!
But... Any Orlando pic? The hardest will be to choose from the millions of pics.
Wonderful first entry, Kat!

Thank you Nenya, Choco, Nuit, Gem and CD

Lovely entry Nenya! I love your choice of shapes. I noticed that you made a really nice one to use beside your siggy too. I'm glad that you were able to use the tut.

This is a great challenge! Love what you've all come up so far - yours looks like a postage stamp CD, if only we could really have stamps like that... You are so clever with all these different shapes!

Lola, CD, Nel! All wonderful entries!!!

Lola, that Joe one is lovely

CD, that is a great pic. And you choose a perfect shape to give it that little bit of zip along with the perfect single word!

Nel! I so happy to see you had time to play! So cool how you have the shape outlining the "O". And I love the dots.

Here is my second..

Great work, CD!
