March 2010 Graphics Challenge



Guidelines:
  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!

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! 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

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!

Thank you, girls.

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:

These are just stunning, I particularly like your Balian one Nenya and Lola your first Will. Perfect, both. Make me feel a litle wistful for days past somehow.
Keep' em coming girls- dunno about you but I need rescuing!

There are thousands and thousands of them to explore and play with. I've been there many a day week month.....a simple 5 min project can get twisted into days of trying stuff.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

*snicker* we caught one Lola......now to think of ways to draw more people in with the power of the PS.

CD?

Beri, which programm do you use?

Nuit, wouldn't it be chasing after Joe? Maybe Orlando can help you out with his bonus miles if you ran out.
