    Doesn't look like I'm going to be done this by 11:59pm on the 30th. I'm still splicing pictures together and haven't started on any sort of text yet... :(

    I know I could have one done by the end of the weekend, Monday at the latest, but not tonight. :(
    That being said, I've got the backgrounds done, now to add text, the sidebar/curve and a few thematic elements to spruce it up...

    EDIT: If no one else has submitted a banner that meets official standards, I'll continue working on this one. I don't need VIP status or a title, just want to get this thing done. :p

    I'm working on one too. Just need to fix a few things, finish the sidebar, and do the stupid curve. :)

    It wouldn't hurt to have two if both of ours turn out awesome. ;)

    I haven't even had a chance to look at starting one between college courses and my full time job, plus holiday stuff (mainly our food drive tomorrow) I have had squat for spare time to do such.

    [image=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b278/legomania5/FanForce/side2.gif]

    Here's what the whole banner will look like put together (but larger cuz photobucket = teh sux):

    [image=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b278/legomania5/FanForce/bannerbannerbanner.jpg]

    The images are of Torrey Pines State Reserve in San Diego, Death Valley, Alaska's Gulkana Glacier, Mount St. Helens, and the Snake River, respectively. :)

    I gave up on a few things (like being able to put a palm tree for the curve, since finding a good picture of a palm tree without a colored background is hard. :p

    Thoughts?

    Are you trying to steal my ideas? ;) I want a palm tree in the curve too.
    Do you mind if I use a similar, or same idea as your's for the ad holders?

    Here is my work in progress. I'm still working on adding more elements, cleaning up other ones and giving it a more 'professional feel' to it. Thankfully I've been able to finish splicing together my background from 31 pictures I took several weeks ago... so it should have a basic feel to it. Hopefully it has a "Pacific" feel to it even if I didn't put the text on it.

    EDIT: I also need to refine the colours in the style sheet, but that can wait until I have all the colours I want in the actual graphics.

    True. However, I was having an issue with getting decent source photos, so I had to go out of my way to capture my own. Also, it is the Pacific Forum, so what says that better than the Pacific Ocean, even if we don't all live near it? I would have prefered adding more locations, maybe for the next one I do...

    If you want I can get you some images for the general area I live from outside of town including the gorge area around the Columbia river and the more desert like surrondings of my general area

    Pfft, mine owns all of them and it was done in time for the deadline.

    Everyone lives near water. Just turn the tap on, close your eyes and imagine you by the Pacific. :p

    Too warm... says the man who showed up at 1am for our Rose Parade camp-out wearing shorts and sandals when it was 45° outside. [face_tired]
