    Please join me in congratulating Black-Dog as the Spring winner! Here is his winning entry:

    [image=http://i417.photobucket.com/albums/pp254/Jagger_Slade/Minis/NasChokaArt.jpg]

    B-D, you are free to choose the colors of your liking for the next week and be sure to look for your piece of art as an icon!

    Also, would it be possible for you to supply a higher resolution to be turned into the icon?

    :eek: :eek: :eek: I actually won? I really did not see that coming, way out of left field. Still this is pretty cool though. Thanks much Solo, Blue and Azure. :) [:D] I thought that the Yuuzhan'tar group pic or the one of Darth Sion would win. Them or earlybird's depiction of Admiral Motti.

    Again, thank ye very much. :)

    So how do I change my colors then? I like to go for some red red textsurrounded by black, but I wouldn't have a clue how to go about it.

    I also just raised my pic resolution to 300 dpi, though I don't see any difference. I also cut it up to be an icon.

    How would this look for an icon? I'd like this if possible please? :)

    I have two versions for you here. Let me know if any of these will work out or if you want any changes made:

    I'm not sure if I want to have this be retrospective. We have a lot of entries dating back to 2007 and that may generate some problems. For the moment, I want to keep it to current entries only, but I'll talk with Nat about it and see what she thinks.
