December 2010 Graphics Challenge


Banner by: Erendira

  1. We have decided the graphic for this month's challenge will be, Bookmarks (500 x 100px for single side or 500 x 200px for both sides). See the sample below for further instruction. I have also included a blank double sided version that you can use to get started and a beautiful example made by Lola.

    *if you choose to do your enties tall instead of long, the upside down part for folding won't work the same as shown above, since the from and back will be side by side instead.
  2. There is no set theme this month. You may use any Orlando or Orlando character pics.
  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 December 22rd and the poll will be posted later that same night, time permitting. *Please keep in mind, due to the season, this date is aproximate and may change depending on our personal time restrictions.
  8. There will be a limit of FOUR 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.

What a wonderful bookmark, Lola!

Makes me want to go to the next book-store to buy a new book. And I already know which one... Gave my parents a hint for Christmas/my birthday. Would have to be "The Pillars of the Earth"... (there's currently a Tele-event running and I love it)... wouldn't Balian just fit?

Okay... let me see what I can do this time.

Gorgeous! This one and the example. On a Balian roll Lola!

So you just print it on photo paper and laminate them together?

You probably could print to photo paper....my printer just makes smudges of photos when I try. Plain paper would work ok. Laminating is a great idea!

That is very good, not to mention it'd look hot between the pages of a nice book. I love to read and once bought a Legolas bookmark, sadly I have no idea where it went. It is a good thing I suck at making things like this or if not I'd have more than I'd know what to do with.

Perfect Lola, as ever!
And to start with Balian...

I don't know what's coming over me, maybe to much wine, *hick* but I've got a little something something...

to laugh over or at, do as you like






P.S. I work with paint.net, just sayin'

Oh Gundi, a little bit of Will, is always a thrill. Really good, girl! *clap*

Great start and welcome to new artists - good to see you joining in and giving our artists some competition!

Great Will one Gundolf, love the lettering - so describes our wet Pirate!

And a cheeky one too, Monkey, so like our Orlando!

And sexy soapy Joe - helps Gem up off the floor - well done in the slaying department Lola !

@ Lola, Bertina, Steffi, Gem, Stormdancer: Thank you for the compliments. They encourage me, to deliver additional entries.



One with the sometimes underrepresented (and underestimated) Paris and one with my dear loved Balian...

@ Steffi: Funny and lovely things (especially the one with Kirsten), well done!

@ Lola: What shall I say? Both simply great!

Thanks, Carola.

I just couldn't resist to grab again for my beloved noble knight...




With this I completed my four entries. It was fun to work with this system.
