[size=5][COLOR="DimGray"]Official Discussion Thread[/size][/font][/COLOR][/center]

[size=1]Alright, this is going to be the official Signature Of The Week Discussion Thread!
Feel free to talk about anything SOTW-related, talk about the weeks entrants, suggest some themes for the next week.

I think this could be a great opportunity to help bring some much needed attention and activity to our beloved Art Studio.

Be sure to submit an entry, no matter what your skill-level may be. The prizes for the weeks Winner and Runner-Up are pretty cool, if I may say so myself.
I designed a badge that will be given out to the winners and runner-ups.
Not to sound too arrogant, but I think it came out pretty sexy, haha.
;D!

I've also talked to Desbreko, and we think it would be a really cool idea for the week's winners to get a mini-medal that will show up below your username!

So, yeah. Ha, if you have any questions feel free to ask them here.
Any suggestions? Ask here.
Theme suggestions for the week? Ask here.
Comments? Please, do tell.
Or go ahead and let Boo or myself know!
:animesmil

Discuss away, everyone![/size]

[FONT=Arial]I'd just like to post here to encourage [I]everyone[/I] to vote on their favorite banners. Not knowing how the art is done only prevents you from offering good constructive criticism; saying "I like this one" is [I]not [/I]an impossible task.

I look forward to the entries. (^_^)[/FONT]

[size=1]Just want to say that I'm glad to see that this show is now officially well on the road. And with that I also want to repeat Allomorph by encouraging any member of the community to vote for their favourite banner!

Plus, I'm pretty excited about seeing the prizes, so do your best everyone. :whoops:[/size]

[size=1]Also when voting, try not to vote for the person who made but rather for the signature itself, or else it wouldn't be fair. I also highly encourage everyone to vote. The SOTW would not work if there are no voters! So please try to encourage your friends/buddies in the forum to vote also!!! Don't forget to join too! :D

Boothten, I am allowed to join too riiiight???[/size]

[size=1]Thanks to everyone for the positive remarks![/size]

[quote name='Haku877']P.S: Is there a thread for avatar of the week?[/QUOTE]
[size=1]Unfortunately there isn't. I've actually never heard of an Avatar Of The Week contest on any GFX forums I frequent, but I've no doubt it's out there.
If you'd like, OtakuBoards has a thread where you can submit avatars you've made and/or don't use anymore so that other members can use them as their own. It's called the [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=37977][u]Avatar Submission Thread[/u][/url].
Hope that helps![/size]

[quote name='jigglyness']Boothten, I am allowed to join too riiiight???[/quote]
[size=1]Of course! Like I've said before, [i]EVERYONE[/i] is encouraged to join in submitting an entry for the SOTW.
Who knows? Maybe [i]I[/i] might make one every now and then.
;D![/size]

[size=1]Sorry about my lack of activity everyone, my computer apparantly seems it really cool to just crash and not work. Damn PCs, it's a good thing I've saved all my art (including the winners'/runner-ups badge rewards) onto my Mac.

Anywayyy, heh.
Allamorph, the deadline for members to submit their artwork will be tonight at 11:59PM PDT, and I will be creating the Voting thread for this weeks entries tomorrow as soon as I possibly can. Once the Voting thread has been created, voting will continue on until Sunday night. You'll have four days to vote for who you think the winner should be.

The Winner and Runner-Ups will then be announced in a Hall-Of-Fame type thread where I will be posting the winners/runner-ups and handing out the badges. I'll be creating that thread on Monday.

The next SOTW contest will also begin on Monday, and the cycle will continue.
It's gonna be good times, hah.


I'd also just like to remind everyone that YOU CAN ONLY SUBMIT YOUR OWN ARTWORK.
Please don't enter a friend's banner into the SOTW contest.
I'm talkin' to you Shy!
haha, all in good fun.
;D![/size]

[COLOR="DarkGreen"][FONT="Book Antiqua"]So mean to Shy, even though the original thread said this:[quote name='boothten'][size=1]Be sure to submit an entry, no matter what your skill-level may be. [/size][/QUOTE]I object! You're discriminating against Shy's copy and paste skills! :D

[SIZE="1"][/smartassmode][/SIZE]

I suppose the real course of action would have been to pm Sara and suggest she enter her banner into the contest. I know I would have done that if I had thought of it. Heh.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[size=1]Cool, I have an own [i]frownie[/i]. [noparse]:D[/noparse]

Anyway, I'm sorry to see the banners not streaming in as quickly this time. Could be that it's quite a specific theme this time that requires some more background information. I for one hadn't seen the movie until this weekend, so I had no clue what to make a banner about.

Don't know for sure, but maybe a broader theme would work for next round. [/size]

Its all my fault. Since I entered no one has submitted anything. I kill everything. ;_;[/SIZE][/QUOTE]Actually seeing your Dark Knight banner is partly what motivated me to make mine. ^_^

I would have thought that most people would have seen The Dark Knight by now so I don't think that it was a bad choice for a theme. But yeah, it was a [i]little[/i] restricting.[/COLOR][/FONT]

I was pretty clueless when I first entered this round. I hadn't seen the Dark Knight at that time however I was still able to make something after a little research. I think its true that maybe a less specific theme might be better.

[size=1]Bah, sorry about the mega delays all of you. I was hoping by now boothten would be showing his face again, because I have been really busy the past week. Tomorrow I'll try to get some things up and running again. If you want, you can send in theme suggestions.[/size]

[size=1]Sorry everyone for the delay, but I've now put the new thread up and put the winners up of last round. I'm also sorry to announce that I haven't made any little thingies for the winners, though I'm shouting out to Debsie to get the medal up anyway.

Okay then, so I figured I might as well start this new thread a bit sooner, going with Lrb's suggestion [b]Back to School[/b], as it seems to be fitting, like he mentioned himself. So, by all means, get your entries in![/size]

I entered the new contest. This time around I had so much trouble trying to make the graphic because my computer was acting weird. Plus it kept raining and the lights would flicker. In the end though it came out well enough and I even made it as my own signature with out the back to school parts of it. :catgirl:
