Graphic Challenge: Halloween Banner Contest

Post by Guest on October 12th 2015, 5:47 pm

#Graphic_Challenge One

 Forumotion Halloween Banner Contest  



Contest Duration:
(October 12th -- October 29th)
Awards:
First Place: 3,000 Credits --- Second Place: 2,000 Credits --- Third Place: 1,000 Credits


Welcome to the Support Forum's first Graphic Challenge, where our members may compete to create a fun banner for the support forum for Halloween!  This Challenge is not just a contest, as we have had in the past.  Instead, this contest is especially focused on improving your graphic abilities and will feature two new features that a normal contest does not have.

1) After the contest period, Graphic Designers will take the time to critique your work and give tips on how to improve your skills.  

2) The contest will now include a graphic challenge rule -- this time, it will be an image that you will be required to include in your work and to make it fit or blend in with the banner as best you can.



Size (In Pixels): 865px × 201px
Images to include: This Image
Text to Insert: "Forum of the Forums" & "Official Support Forum of Forumotion"
Detailed Description: Keeping the background color of 369ece is not required, but preferred!   If you do not have that color of a background, having one that is transparent or a color that will look good on top of 369ece is also acceptable!

A modern design with a Halloween theme, while also including the image linked above is your challenge.  How the image is used (regardless of its color, opacity, or amount of cover in the image) is entirely up to the artist.  We truly look forward to seeing your submissions so that we can all improve our design skills together as a community!

Post your submissions here and one entry per person!

Update:

Due to an error in the image previously provided, it has been changed. Sad We apologize for this inconvenience, but if you've already created a banner for future submission, feel free to keep the old image and your submission will still be considered!

It's because that is the contest all about, it is a graphic challenge and you should know how to blend that image in the banner that you're going to make for this contest. Smile

The entire point of this challenge is to take something that is provided to you, regardless of its quality, and to make your absolute best of it. It show great skills to take something that you don't particularly enjoy and make it into art that you do enjoy.

Other than, you should do it simply because we asked you to. ^^ The purpose for contests and graphic requests is to make the requester happy.

Still, if you aren't interested in the challenge, you're obviously not required to participate. =)

I finally learned how to use Adobe Photoshop Mr. Green sort of took me 3 days to get this done I hope it looks ok for Forumotion.



I got this picture Halloween Witch on the Moon

and this picture Trick or Treat Sign with Pumpkins

I tried to use the grey background as well as the picture but when I put the other pictures on it they were in a black square and I couldn't get them to look right so I hope the black background looks ok

This is my first contest ever even if I don't win I still had fun and learned a lot on this Adobe Photoshop banana

EDIT: I am such an idiot I was looking at that banner and suddenly it hit me I had the words in the wrong order it should have been forum of the forum first then the next part so went back and changed it..hope that was ok..

EDIT: I realize that if I start something I should finish what I start have always done it not going to stop now..
I know that this other banner can't be in the contest because I had already submitted the other one but wanted to show you all what I had done and that I did what I accomplished and it only to me 2 hrs instead of 3 days lol and I like it



OMGosh I am so proud of myself I learned how to put pictures behind each other the only thing with this project it just didn't look right except with the picture that you wanted us to use and the circle of boo's lol but I have the finale banner.. This one is my finale one I promise lol..



I promise this is my last posting lol and this is the one for the contest

Here is where I found the halloween pictures:
3D Angry Cute Ghost

Creepy Halloween Moon with Bats

Transparent BOO to You Halloween Decoration

Happy Halloween with Witch Hat

Transparent Trick or Treat Pumpkin

I would post links to resources but... there aren't any. ^^; Hand drawn on my computer. (Also, the requested symbol is in the moon behind the face AND was used to make the "leaves" behind the Happy Halloween portions.
Not the best of the submissions but I had to take a chance.
Can't wait for the critique portion of the contest~
Good luck to the other contestants!  There are some very nice ones!

Here's how it would look on the site.

Have been looking at all these great banners and realized that I forgot a few very important items that should have been put on my banner Sad ... I was so excited that I even attempted the challenge and actually made one that I brain farted on looking at the banner on Forumotion before submitting my banner..I had fun anyway and I like what I did even though it's not complete..Mr. Green

For as long as the contest is ongoing, you can still edit your post with an updated banner. ^^ All that is required is that you do not steal ideas from others when you edit! Otherwise, feel free to update your banner with anything you feel you missed!

No problem, @Broomhilda! You can create as many as you'd like during the contest period, just let us know which one is your final version for submission when you're done! =) If you have any more questions, just let me know--you can PM me, too!

We all look forward to seeing your final work!
