    In response to Amaya I think that there's a tad too many colours all jumbled together. In my opinion banners work best when there's an overall colour theme running through it. It then also matches well with the style sheet. I'd say try to rework it slightly to not have such brightly contrasting colours mixed together.



    Hawk I realise that you may have just thrown this contest into the [face_monkey] land, but you should try and contact Ki. He seems to always come up with some good stuff. :)

    I swear I didn't put Tyi up to it!

    Flattered by the suggestion, but I haven't got access to Photoshop at the moment. Perhaps some other time.

    Actually, I'm gonna bin it and start again. I knew it wasn't working the whole way through. My version of photoshop is in Chinese and it took me a long time to go through hiting random buttons to remember everything was.

    But I've quit my job and am going to take the holiday I never got, so I should be able to give it another go (if it's still open).

    I was thinking more along the lines of the one I did for our [link=http://fftas.tk]FFTas website[/link] (but again, less colourful)

    You should make it an open call, rather than a contest. You usually get more banners that way. :p

    I've got a feeling that all the people who want to make banners have already chimed in anyway. ;)

    Does anyone know a really good Star Wars site with lots of good quality photos? I can't really seem to find any (even using google)

    Oh, come now Daniel - we've waited the better part of a decade for a new banner, surely the odd month here and the odd leap year there won't matter?

    Well, I've done another one. It's very different from the last - I kept it simple with logos and stuff rather than an overload of tiny images.

    There's three designs for the text, because it's a pain working out screen widths and stuff, so could people please take a look at them and tell me if any don't fit your screen, and indeed if you like any of them. Don't bother trying to be nice or whatever, tell me what you really think.

    Personally, I like the third text the best, Amaya. The white is much easier to see, and the position just suits it. :)

    I love the colours?style sheet and background?although I don't see much on the banner to be frank. Besides the Rebel and Imperial logos, there's nothing else to do with Star Wars on it... although I do love the call to arms or whatever its called in the ad holders.

    A good base, but perhaps some extra things could be added to add some more flavour?

    Just my thoughts. :)
