Voting will be taking place until [color=red][b]Monday October 21, 2008[/color] @ 4:00 PM GMT+1[/b]. The next SOTW contest will begin shortly after that date.

[b]A few notes before voting[/b]
[list][*]We encourage you to both vote in the poll [i]and[/i] reply with a post stating who you voted for and why. In the post you can let the participant know what you liked, didn't like and in the latter case, how they could improve.

[SIZE="1"]Unfortunately I was unable to join this one because most of last week my net was down.

Anyway, I'm voting for [b]jigglyness[/b] on this one. I like the colors, and theres nothing flashy and or very over powering..except the text, but I like the text placement and the font you used aswell.

Everyone else.

[i]AngryBarista:[/i] I like this mainly because its pixel art, and vg characters. I like the little pixel cutout on the side, but is it suppose to be something, or is it just random? I don't really like the text placement.

[i]Cat:[/i] I'm not really liking the colors, or the background, or the border. I like the quote though, and the plaement was good. ;p

[i]Jeremy:[/i] Honestly...it creeps me out. These random heads with a ripple effect and brush splatters..creepy was my first thought. Lol. [/SIZE]

[quote name='AngryBarista'][FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Lol WHAT have we done to our entries Boo?
I wish I could enter again with something better, because yours rocks my socks off![/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/quote]

wtf?? I'm wondering the same thing. Even though it is funny, something to lighten up signature of the week.

This was really hard for me, all the entries were really different and creative. It was a tricky theme to make a banner for and each one was a great but, there can only be one...

[b]AngryBarista[/b], you may not have put it there but that orange ghost with the mustache is one of the funniest things I've seen around here in a while so you get my vote. :animesmil[/COLOR][/FONT]

[COLOR="RoyalBlue"][FONT="Lucida Sans Unicode"]I'm going to vote for [B]AngryBarista[/B], even before the modifications, I was already leaning towards the retro-feel to that banner. Brings back good memories.

Though what amuses me the most is all the new thread titles for the art studio. o_O [spoiler]falls over laughing[/spoiler]

Anyway, excellent entries everyone. :catgirl:[/FONT][/COLOR]

I rather like the look and feel of [B]AngryBarista[/B]'s entry so that's who I'm voting for. I liked it before the alterations and even after with the silly mustache and hat. =P It's nice and simple and the retro feel is fun.

Cat, though I liked yours, I didn't really care for the colors. The saying on it was nice though. Well before the alterations that is. Heh.

Jeremy, I kind of found yours creepy too. The graphics look great, but it just didn't seem to fit the idea of friendship very well.

jigglyness, I got the same vibe from yours that I did with Jeremy. Not the creepy bit, but the fitting friendship. It seemed more like admiration than friendship. Though again, the graphics are nicely done.

[COLOR="DarkGreen"][FONT="Book Antiqua"][B]AngryBarista:[/B] I like the simple retro feel to your entry. It?s simple and fun.

[B]Cat:[/B] What I like best about yours is the saying. The colors are nice too.

[B]Jeremy:[/B] I like the effects and how you?ve done the word friendship with the bar underneath.

[B]jigglyness:[/B] What I like most about yours is the play on words about someone being your star.

And since I can only chose one, I pick [B]Cat[/B]?s entry since I like the saying on theirs the best. [/FONT][/COLOR]

I voted for Jigglyness. I was torn between that and Jeremys entry.

Angry Barista - For me there just wasnt...well... much of anything to comment on really, did you do draw the ghosts by yourself?

Cat - I like the colours but im afraid its just not my thing, i can see you paid attention to detail when picking your stock anime pic though, no pixely jagged edges where you cut it out either.

Jeremy - I'd have to disagree with this being creepy, i get it, if i was given this topic i'd have gone the girly route as well haha but unfortunately im not a great fan of the colours and i dont know if i like the colours together.

Jiggleyness - I voted for this one, mainly because of the angle and placement. Everything fits, nothing overpowers anything else. The font I like although i think what you actually did with the text is a little mundane but still, it works. I love the colours and I like how the two .. "characters"? .. are almost framed with the deeper more purpley blue behind them.

[FONT="Trebuchet MS"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"]Everything was done from scratch [aside from font, cheated there]. I figured I'd try to get the ghosts right by eye, so they're a little off. Also, traditionally the ghosts don't have the black outlines.
