    A long time ago I made a banner for Fanforce Ottawa. The chapter never became official, so I deleted it. With the recent activity by Ottawa members here, I thought I throw something together again.

    Tell me what you think and give me your honest criticism, and suggestions. Bare in mind this is just a rough draft. There is still no background image, reply image etc...

    I love it, but the perspective for the Parliament Buildings is a little off.

    Thanks for the comment. Yeah I was trying to put the parliament buildings in a way that blend well into the background, and I couldnt find a good shot of it to use. I will try to make some alterations to it. Thanx :)

    Just as an outsider, the only comments I would make is tht its all prequel imagery. Maybe replace New Obi-wan for old? Stormtrooper as well as clone trooper?

    Otherwise I do like the Parliament building as part of the Coruscant skyline.

    Lends a new meaning to the phrase "Senate reform"!

    Macleod, there is no Ottaw FanForce chapter. It seems that my hard work in trying to get a group together has run out of steam since the release of Episode 3. There was much talk about it before the movie, but once it was out, everyone decided to go about their buisness. I am sorry to report this, but if you have any idea to get it going again, then please let me know!

    Very nice, professional, maybe you could photo edit "used" looking maple leaf onto the clone trooper armor? A little touch of influence from our corner of the galaxy.

    Looks great to me.

    Just spitballing tho, since Ottawa is the seat of Canadian Parliment and Senate, shouldnt we have images from the Galactic senate, The emporer, the Jedi council, and rebel leadership ?

    However I would be just as happy with this one.

    After a long second look, I like it the way it is, but the weathered red maple leaf idea has merit

    Thanks Mike. I sent Atomic a message to see if he can do it. Otherwise I might take a stab.

    Frankly Atomik I like your first one better.

    Are there any problems with meeting the guidelines Mike posted? Can I help at all?

    Nope, no problem at all, other than the fact that it's not finished ;)
    Still needs the background image, post reply button, and ad holders. Let's see what everyone else thinks first. Maybe I could end up combining some of the elements (like the faded maple leaf on clone... like was suggested some time ago... or anything else).

    I want to get more feedback first... I would be willing to try out any suggestions or ideas you all have - to get a banner everyone is happy with :)
