May 2010 Graphic Challenge



Guidelines:
  1. Kat, Mirk 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 of Orlando's characters to create the front side of post cards, in banner size, using a "Vacation" theme.
  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, and include both the artist's name and the writer's name.
  7. Entries will be taken until May 23rd and the poll will be posted later that same night, time permitting.
  8. There will be a limit of five (5) entries per person this month.
  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 600 x 400 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!

Lola ,Kat & Mirk

After we supply the pic side of the post cards, we may be sending this challenge over to the FF writers to tell us what the characters wrote on the back of the cards. Let us know when you post your cards if it is ok for us to use your art over in FF.

Big thank you to Choco for thinking up this challenge , including the part about using it in FF after we have played here in GC.

Great idea guys

Just blame it on me, Lola!
I'm sure Joe has to write a lot of cards to his, erm, mates, Gem. *cough*
In this case we should put a warning on this thread, BalticMonkey.
Every pic of Orlando in his costume counts, right? Behind the scenes and so on as long as he looks like Leggy or Will or Joe...

Yes, we can use all those pics and say they are the character. I can see what you are thinking, Choco. Great idea!

What was it Mrs Scott said to Joe: "I'm sure you have a lot of good friends"... I can hear him now: "Ah lass, I can't help it that I'm so irresistible now can I?"

Oh Kat that's priceless! We'll see later if Luna is up to the challenge of writing Balian's postcard for him, limited space and all...

Thank you Tonny, Gem and CD

Here is my second...not sure if I will keep it as an entry if I can do better with my other ideas.....really hard to find a ski pic that is not blurred and I cringed as I tried to make leggy just as blurred as the pic.

Pfff...You're definitively crazy my darling....
Looove the Leggy one.......not sure about that hat(or whatever)on Balian's head though...
(Oiii,thank you for the laughs...)

Oh my...I don't think I could rise to the occasion this month....I'm not so good at this as you...but sure the rest of the girls will do great cards.

Oh Kat, that first one is...words fail me! It's just ... well, tartan? On chainmail? Well, you made me burst out laughing anyway!

That second one looks great - well done with that, Leggy looks like he's regretting tackling Mount Doom to me!

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with, interesting challenge to say the least!
