Time for a bit of healthy competition. There are some really great avatar and signature combinations here in the swamp, so I thought it was about time we had a little competition to get the creative juices flowing.

Rules:

1. Your vote can be for an avatar/sig combination that a person has had in the past, not neccesarily the one he/she has now.
2. You must vote for only one person.
3. All votes will be counted on 7th March and the winner will be announced by me.

If you havn't got a picsig yet, I'm sorry but that's not my fault. You can still vote though.

Let the competition commence!! :D

Good idea LeXX! And a little competition has never hurt any1..!

Hmm, this is gonna be k00! I'll just decide which combination that I'll use (I know that I'm gonna win :D), and then submit it. As for my vote I'll have to see more combinations!

I vote for Lost Welshman. He makes quality avs and sigs and has a shown his work in his latest sig and av. Go Lost Welshman

(P.S) Vote for me or Lost Welshman:D

Darklighter
02-25-2003, 07:43 PM
My vote is for leXX. She always produces original and amazing sigs and avs. Very talented, you are:)

Eldritch
02-25-2003, 08:58 PM
Darky, is that Rikku (from FFX) in your sig?

Because it could also pass for Raiden from Metal Gear. ;)

Reb Starblazer
02-25-2003, 10:16 PM
Actually, it's Saladin from War of Genesis(somewhat amusing story about how I actually know that... ^_^)

And I'm going to have to vote for Darklighter as well, he's always got great av's and sig pics. But, when you make as many sig pics as he does, it's hard not to have a few good ones:D

Also, it has to be an avatar/sig pic combination right, or at least that's what I gathered from leXX's first post. You can't vote for just a sig pic.

Pisces
02-25-2003, 10:52 PM
Well, if it's good enough, I'd like to enter mine.

But full credit goes to MysticSpade for my sig pic and someone made my av for me too but I forget his name. I'll find it and put it here later if it's required.

Pedantic
02-26-2003, 12:20 AM
Most everyone here has an awesome avatar/sig. I'll have to cast my lot with kstar, however. I always liked his avatar. :)

Edit: Make it easier for leXX to tally the votes. :)

ok, i'm goind to vote now, i'm voting for hekx noxu, his colours are great, and i love his signature!

and to save leXX from the work, here is the list for now:
Darky = 3
Kstar__2 = 3
leXX = 2
Hekx Noxu = 2
Pnut_Master = 2
Zbomber = 1
InsaneSith = 1
Katarn07 = 1
MysticSpade = 1
Elessar-Eärfalas = 1
Lost Welshman = 1


they are all there;)

nova_wolf
02-26-2003, 06:55 AM
I vote once for me.

Before the flaming ensues, I am not doing this because I am a slimy gimp with nothing better to do.

If you check the page I have linkd to below...
nova_wolf - Avs & Sig Pics - New and Old (http://oracle.angelcities.com/NWASP.htm)
...then you will see how I progressed from MS Paint to Photoshop.

I am voting for me because I am proud of what I learnt and think that whilst they may not be flashy or expertly done as the others exhibited here, for a first timer after but 2 hours use, they aint bad!

That and the others all rock too much to choose, so by doing this, I give you all equal credit (trust me, it does work on some level ;) )

(PS - first post after buying Siggy Pic!)

02-26-2003, 06:56 AM

and k_star mentioned to that they liked Hekx Noxu's sig. just to let you know i made that for him. you'll notice that i made a few peoples sigs. and Katarn07 i did make his sig, but it's more of a re-vised version of his pallette design that he submitted in the request thread.

and katarn07 i thank you for your nomination but for as much work as i've done for people hopefully i'll get more votes:D

also since i can't vote for myself i'll just vote for my work.

therefore my vote will go to Hekx Noxu cuz i like that sig i made him.

I vote for Darklighter, I really like his sig/av combination, very crisp and sharp.

Well, I have started making sigs, and I guess for the heck of it I will enter just for fun.

Here is the sig I will use, I made it on Sunday. I have learned alot since then from fellow smapies such as MysticSpade so I may make another attempt at it.

Gah, I am rambling, here it is.:)

Quit your sucking up;):plol, I know you're only in this to win:Dj/k

Well, I'm not too bothered about winning anything. I appreciate the fact that even a few people like my work. I'm flattered really, and at the end of the day I've just done the best I can, and didn't make it for this competition, or to show it off. It's just for me:D

Oh and I counted again. Hekx has 5 votes now, and I have 5 too (well, 6 if you count the post below;))

After you mentioned the amount of votes Hekx got, i couldn't help looking back at the previous pages to see who had voted. Surprisingly enough, i only found 4 votes for Hekx:

Page 1: Skate Boy
Page 2: MysticSpade, SkinWalker, NeoDios

If you can find anymore, please post back here.

That girl in Alias, isn't she in Daredevil? Jennifer Garner or something?

Excellent choice!;)

Well, I will enter my new Aragorn sig, since I think it is better then my old one. I like making Aragorn sigs heh, he is my favourite LOTR character.:)

Well, here it is. I kinda overdidit on transparency and hue/saturation but I am trying to see what results I can get using different techniques.:)

BTW: Darky, your sig is amazing.;)

Darklighter
03-02-2003, 08:32 PM
Well with mine, I just find a colour scheme/style I want from different pictures, and put lots of different pics over each other, then mess about with the Photoshop effects to see what comes out. It's very trial and error, I don't really know what I want at the beginning. Just go with it, be creative;)

Step one: go browse through your hundreds of Matrix pics and find a pic that you like :D

Step two: pick a theme. For instance, mine right now is "Guns! Lot's of Guns!"

Step three: Find more Matrix pics :D

Step four: compile!

No, but seriously, what I do is first think of a theme, then just expand from there. (finding more pics, thinking of that kind of style I want it to be in, ect)

Ratmjedi
03-04-2003, 01:52 AM
Like TK said just pic what you want it to be about and think about it alittle. Then just looks for pics that you want and then you play around with what you can do with each picture. You just keep messing around and then you will find something that you like and voila you have a nice Image Sig.

thank you everybody.

I'm the proud owner of a bigger ego! :)

I'm digging around to find my reallly old avatars. back to when i first started working for the LFNetwork.

as soon as i find them. I'll post them :)

EDIT:

well i only found one. i didn't like it that much anyways:

http://www.indieriot.com/sjacques/old_001.gif

The cartoon one was basicly about a year ago when i tried doing an online cartoon strip about my life with my friends. every day there's something halarious. but that was everywhere on the internet so i droped it. nothing original...and i dont look like that anymore. no more bushy spikey hair. its quite long and wavy now... but still bushy. and new glasses. thick black frames. you know. artist style :p

thats the easy way LeXX and only works for quicktime trailers, i use SnagIt and Camtasia to do my stuff, and i stop making moving avatars because i realised an avatar is supposed to represent or be you, so when i change it, it really depends on my mood

Can you blame me for loving art and graphics? I removed the signature because I'm an admin and I need to take a stance on this. Signatures are nice, yes. But nice when they aren't ridiculous. Some members have been nothing but **** disturbers lately about it. :rolleyes:

SkinWalker
03-06-2003, 12:55 PM
I noticed that TheJackel removed his signature.... I'm just curious, what are the pros and cons to having a sig. The obvious to me, as a con, is that it could interfere with loading times of a thread, especially if there are a lot of sigs in the thread. The pros.... nice ones can say something about the user (I guess that could be a con as well); it seems to be possible to include hyperlinks (well... I guess that could also be a con).

Am I missing anything, or did I answer my own question. I haven't really noticed any serious controversy over them and I'm considering trading my credits for one.

Just curious.

If you have enough points, IMO I think it would be a good idea to get a sig pic. It gives the user more identity, and can show their skills at computer artwork. It's also just fun to see the different interests of users, judging by their sigs...everyone's different:D

thats not double posting dark, look at the time in between them

Darklighter
03-19-2003, 06:44 PM
I was under the impression that the time between posts was irrelevant; no matter how long it is, double posting is still prohibited in the forum. If you can find the rule in the Code Of Conduct that says you can go for a certain time before double posting, I'll be content:)

Ok I’m going to take this opportunity to talk about my avatar & sig.
no prizes for guessing my theme.

the avatar was made from a scan of a star wars ep II trading card. I added the saber glow by using 4 frames with ever so slight changes in brightness. I think the effect works quite well.
my is sig made up of screen captures – the first two are during the dooku duel. the third pic, which I absolutely love, is anakin slicing though a tuskin raider. the font I used for my name was ‘star jedi’

Darklighter
03-28-2003, 07:14 PM
Nice work Sivy;)

I got fed up of making sigs to match my avatars, so I just made a black and white montage of different shapes and colours converted to grayscale, with my name on top:)There are more layers in there than you first think...

:D

Bob Gnarly
03-28-2003, 07:17 PM
well my sig is a simple pic of Wolfwood from the best anime ever Trigun, i was tired of making complecated ones so i just croped a photo and stuck it on, i did tilt the pic a bit so that you could see it all

My avatar is a pic of John Lennon, from his album "Power to the People".

My sig is the lyrics to the first and second movements of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen. (I may add the other 3 movements)

Let's start another thread for a new sig and avatar competition so ppl don't have to dig through this one :D


Let's say all the participants donate a certain amount to the winner? Plus a grand prize... so if each person donated 100 points x 20 ppl = 2000 points to the winner!

Darklighter
03-28-2003, 08:51 PM
Since I won last time, I can't enter the competition, but can show off my lovely new av and sig. Likey?:D

yeah, i'm in

i think, if its alright with darky, that everyone who wants to enter should donate 50 or so points to darky, then when the winner is annouced darky can pass them on

then once darky has confirmed that he has received the donations we can put them to a vote which has a time limit of a week

what do you think?

maybe a small runner-up prize as well might be good

Darklighter
03-28-2003, 09:10 PM
Sounds like a good idea:)As long as my inbox doesn't fill up too quick with recieved donations;)lol

Everything sounds good ^^

03-29-2003, 02:08 AM
Ok with me.


So there'll be a 50 pt entrance fee and maybe a 100 pt. voting fee? We could have first, second, and third place prizes. I figure that enough ppl will donate so we won't be short for credits.

Also, are we voting for the most creative user or just a single sig/av per person? Either way is fine with me. :D

So, I'm wondering how long applications will be considered, as i dont quite have enough points for a sig.....and then it'll take me awhile to build up the 50 points entry fee.........

Lol me too. I just don't SPAM reply as much as I used to, but if it's 2 points per post that's only 25 posts. Don't worry, if the competition started tomorrow I'm sure somebody would spot you.


Since they've opened the store it's clear to me just how selfless people are here. Good job guys! :thumbsup:

i have some suggestions..

Someone makes the new thread, which atm just advertises the comp & rules,

For 1 week after the thread is made, darky will be accepting the nominations of the 50 points entry fee & 50 points prize fund, so 100 in total
After the week darky will then post a list of nominations & confirmation of their donation
Then the thread maker will ask a mod to edit the post and put a poll with the nominations, then people will vote for 1 week. Now with polls, obviously people can vote for themselves. So I think to make it fair every nominee should vote for themselves and also post their entries
Now I think the winner should get 60 % of the prize fund, the first runner up 25%, the second runner up 15%. This will be worked out when we know how many entries there are. For example, if 10 people take part – 1st 600, 2nd 250, 3rd 150. darky will give out the points once the poll has been closed.

what do you think?

Bob Gnarly
03-29-2003, 05:58 PM
thats great Sivy, ill start the thread now...

what do you think? thats dumb the whole point was just to have the best looking sig not to get points. sorry i just think thats stupid i dont wanna pay just to get complimented.

Sivy
03-29-2003, 06:37 PM
well that the whole point of a competition isn't it?
people enter, people judge- the winner(s) gets a prize.

oh i see, you mean people that use sigs made by other people.
well all i can say to that is.. if i was using a sig made by someone else and i won then i would split the points with whoever made it.

Darklighter
03-29-2003, 07:08 PM
I agree with Sivy. You choose to have that sig, whether it's made by another person or not, so if you win it you can give the points to whoever you like.

It's a competition to prove who has the best graphic editing/designing skills, and every competition must have a reward for the winner of some kind, and points seem to be an appropriate award:)

Sivy
03-29-2003, 09:10 PM
it's just a bit of fun

people vote for their favourite, the winners get a prize

if you don't want to enter then thats fine. if you don't want to vote then thats fine too
