It's attached tell me if it works please, I tried to do what you said to do Ryu_Sakura but your instructions were a little confusing.

(If it does work) It's not the best, but It is the best I have ever made. It could have been a little better but my mouse hates me right now....

Don't open the attatchment, it's BMP. I just put it there so I could upload it. The site I usually upload on only allows 5 uploads per day, so I had to attatch it.

W-T-F... It's extremely hard to understand what the hell you are trying to say... Clear up the grammar mate. But quite simply pokemon is anime whether you want it to be or not -_-. Also could you please clear up and sort the different things you are grading the banners on into different lines/paragraphs o_- ... The thought of entering passed through my mind for a split second or two...

0_o;; So then what exactly is your definition of [i]anime[/i]?

Anyway, I guess rules are rules 0_o And if your not excepting that banner then so be-it. *sighs*

And, um, just a question...Why exactly does there have to be a quote? Because I really don't get why it should. Quotes usually tend to clutter the banner up, so I try my best to avoid them, unless someone I am making a banner for request's it.

Anywhoo, if your not accepting it. Here is the banner Ill be using.


Yea, and I don't mind if you take off points for no quote. LoL, I can't think of any >.<

[color=midnightblue]Well, I'll enter. It's okay to use banners you have posted elsewhere, I presume?

If so, here are my entries.. I have three that I think are my best right here.
That's an Excel Saga one I made.. I really should have lowered the amount of Sepia Toning I did.. It looks to bland to me now. But the second and third ones are really my top two favorites.
I scanned in an image from my Evangelion manga and colorized it here.. That's not such a commonly found idea, and I like how this one turned out. The border kind of makes it look like a comic book frame, to an extent.
Yeah, the third one is certainly my favorite. It took me the longest, and I think it came out very easy on the eyes.

Those are my entries, if there are any problems with my work, simply notify me and I will change what is wrong with them.

EDIT: Oh, and I feel that the banners speak for themselves and need no real phrases or quotes.[/color]

wonderful! we have lotsa entries, (hey, who can brake their own rules? at least till judging!) but i'm just curious what does that say? *points to Otakusennen's 1'st banner* i can't see, it very well, but it's my sisters com, and it's moniter is REALLY bad. (my com is screwed up. ::sigh:: )

A quick recommendation for those of you who can't think of something to put on the banner. As in the quote part for the contest ruling. Look around and find what character on the banner says the most. Or a line they've stated that you think really means something.

@ Ryu Sakura, not to intrude...But Pok'emon is considered an anime. As is Kirby, and others of the such. That'd also be a nice banner to enter, if it wasn't your contest. Anyway.

I see many great banners here. Not only are the banners that have been entered pleasing to the eyes, and great clarity. But they're also of some of the most aspiring banner makers. Great job every one. This will be a close call...

Alot of these are pretty good except the rules state there are supposed to be some qoutes. Since it's my job to spot some of the problems i'll do my best.

dark_dragongirl: your the letering in your picture is a bit blurry.

Kieko: your fourth banner is blurry to.

OtakuSennen: you're banners are good except there aren't any quots and try not to use japaness. Not every one can read it.

MrSonic: you need to of used some better pictures but other than that you have a good quote.

[color=midnightblue]Japanese cartoons tend to have Japanese logos. Besides, it just says "Excel Saga". If I must, I'll edit my previous post right now to clarify..

Plus in the .hack banner we clearly have the .hack logo. Now, .hack is pronounced "Dot hack" when spoken. And, by Ryu Sakura's logic as displayed in her "1 word = not a quote, 2 words is" theory, that would count. Of course, both of them are phrases, not quotes. But do as you wish.

And, because I feel banners can speak for themselves and explain their purpose when properly executed, I will not be modifying the Rei banner any time soon. Exclude it from if you must. Heck, if you're gonna maintain such a mentality, exclude all of them. [/color][color=white]By the way, it's spelled Japanese...[/color]
