    I just want to give this another up with the deadline fast approaching. Don't forget when you design a banner that we need ad holders and a "post reply" image as well. ;)

    WOW... great job you all...
    My favorites are ODJ Vers. 2, Dudemeyster Vers. 2, Soits vers. 2 and Cheveyo's submission.

    And thanks to those who put my humble fanart (Republic Commandos) on their banners :)

    Wow! VERY nice Cheveyo. :eek: ... *looks at hers* [face_worried]


    [link=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/dashleebo/mybannerprogress.jpg] Here's my banner so far ....[/link] I'm still not entirely happy with it. Haven't done the back image yet. Any suggestions on how I can improve it, would be appreciated. ;)

    edit: Uh oh.. just realized I forgot to add in the lady's lightsaber. [face_blush]

    I think everybody's banners are looking great, but I especially like dashleebo's work-in-progress, the whole red left-hand corner is excellent. You do need to add "THEFORCE.NET" somewhere, but I don't see why it can't go on the background image.

    Both of those are incredible! I imagine this will be an extremely difficult choice to pick just one banner...

    Wow...these are really great, everyone! I'm really impressed! I honestly didn't think we'd have such a big turnout, but like always, you guys always manage to surprise me. ;)

    And just something I wanted to bring up - with the contest wrapping up in the coming weeks, I was wondering if you wanted the voting to take place within the MS or here in Fan Art. And once a winner is chosen, did you want VIP colors for the winning artist?

    Thank you soitscometothis, and Cheveyo. :)

    You do need to add "THEFORCE.NET" somewhere, but I don't see why it can't go on the background image

    Yeah... I'm still deciding on where to put it. If it is okay to put it in the back image, that's what I'll be doing. ;)

    Dude: You have as good a chance as anyone. Your banner was good. :)

    Hansolo: IMO the artists in this forum should be the one voting, after all they are what make up the community here, and will be the ones looking at the banner the most.

    Most banner contests include VIP colours, and it is nice, but getting one's banner chosen should be enough of a reward on its own.

    Usualy banner makers get VIP colours for a month, thats the rule on it.

    Okay, I just wanted to get some opinions on that. I know in the past, voting on banners have been done both ways - in the MS and in the forum holding the contest. The same goes with VIP colors - it seems to be the preference of the forum and the mods themselves. I'm happy to hand out VIP colors, but I wanted to make sure you guys wanted them first. Perhaps the winner can decide. ;)

    Yeah, I think the winning artist should have VIP status--I actually think they all deserve VIP status (yeah, yeah--rules and all...), for all the work they've put in on these banners! They're all awesome!! Hats off, seriously--you're all great artists, and your work is really, really appreciated and admired! =D=

    Yes, definitely. If I could go ahead and award it to everyone, I'd do so in a heartbeat. The work in here is definitely top notch. ;)
