November 2010 Graphics Challenge


Banner by: Erendira

  1. We have decided the graphic for this month's challenge will be, siggy sets(500/600 x 200 siggy, plus a 100 x 100 matching avatar).
  2. Our theme for this month is Christmas! Create us some Christmas siggy sets using only these four pics we have choosen:


  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, with the # of votes determined by the # of entries.
  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 November 23rd and the poll will be posted later that same night, time permitting.
  8. There will be a limit of THREE entries per person.(though will be flexible with this if most of you ask for it)
  9. 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.

I'm curious to see what you'll come up with this time!

CD, your first entry looks fabulous already - despite the "grey" hair.

Oh, and just a sidenote: I won't attend this time.

That's beautiful, CD! I certainly wouldn't worry about the grey hair at all if I found that man under my Christmas tree...

Amazing CD. What a perfect start to our challenge! I did not even think about his hair until you mentioned it. It's such a beautiful siggy.

The original picture is black and white and I only colorized his skin. The result is making the hair look totally grey. I'm fairly new at this and don't know all of the tricks yet but I have some great mentors

Speaking of, got your pm Kat and will give it a go!

And Lola, I agree about the grey hair on men - so not fair!!!

^ Now that you say it, FlyingCaptain... The colours CD used combined with Orlando's posture it could be a painting of Michelangelo... Although, I'm kind of glad it's not anything like this.


Now, where are all other artists here? Any more entries?

Lol! Beri, I'm not capable of pulling that off although Kat and Lola could and probably Nenya could too.

Nenya, I love that you used a picture of your home town. It's really beautiful and makes it all the more special.
