It will be the end of October, so the 31st
Hi. Thanks for the thoughtful response and generous offer. I'll answer your question with a PM.
By the way, I found the template you created super-helpful. Great idea! It was very kind of you to share.
Billyjeanplxiv - Yours is turning out fantastic!
HayaMika - Thank you for the template!
Here is my entry 1 (I might do more.) Thoughts?
That's a fantastic submission PadmeLeiaJaina. Perfect time for an Episode 7 theme... great use of the Falcon and BB-8 beneath the logo. Also, the TIEs and Falcon look very sharp between Finn and Poe. Nice work!
Thanks Blue Ice Cream
I took some of my favorite teaser images so far and started with the banner background:
Then I added the forum logos and spacing. Pretty happy with my first attempt! May need to see what kind of images the new trailer brings tonight and submit again. Here is the final:
I'm guessing you used my banner as a reference (I see my user name lol)
It looks good, but the colors are distracting to my eye. Obviously you're not done, but its shaping up well. Too much focus on one section of the saga, but that's my taste
So when does it actually have to be done? Next Tuesday?
We have until the end of 31st October as the final day.
I used to make banners for the roleplaying forum years ago so I decided to go for a latenight Photoshop session and take a crack at it. It's been a while so I'm a little rusty. Here's my submission, definitely open to suggestions. Tried to give each episode some space, I'm pretty sure there's at least one image on there from every movie (including TFA). If someone wants to preview it with the forums and everything underneath that'd be great, as I'm about to fall asleep on my keyboard and can't find the will to attempt it.
You're going to want something in the bottom-left corner, which is visible when the banner is put together.
Thanks, didn't notice that. Updated:
Per some feedback here is my take on a Saga banner. There are two versions with Episode VII variations"
@Dranem It's good but top left is too convoluted. The Podracer doesn't fit in against the logo.
Yeah I really wanted something Episode I related but it is busy. I replaced it with the Jedi Council floor to make it less obtrusive and added a new Kylo to the end:
Why don't you use The Droid invasion of Theed instead of the Jedi council floor? When all the TF Vulture Droids are flying over the city? It would really mesh well with the Battle of Geonosis LAAT's in flight.
Dranem, why are the blue lightsaber - purple? Otherwise, great work!
Really love this! its amazing
This is honestly the best thing ever. The giant Poof behind the JCF logo is what really makes it.
Tried to go with a theme about sunsets/silhouettes for this one. I like the contrast of the oranges and reds with the blue logo and forum colors:
Entry #1 (revised):
The difference is ridiculously subtle, but I blended Bespin with its neighboring backgrounds as suggested. Hopefully, it's slightly more pleasing to the eye. I really wanted to preserve the carbon-freezing chamber's dark colorization, using Boba and Jango as 'bookends'.
Also, I'm considering the addition of a ship above Yoda. The sky feels a tad empty there. Perhaps his lightsaber blade instead.
I like it, maybe add Obi Wan in between Padme and luke and Han between leia and Finn.
Heck do some magic and make Obi on the left side PT and then on the right ANH.
Also add a Kylo and or Poe. and do something with Vader.
Thanks Darthmaul. I was a little reluctant to add the other characters for fear of over-crowding it. But here it is, Entry 1a:
