Well, we got icons from two people (and thank you to those people!), and while I think we could get more icons, the theme was pretty broad and we still ended up with only two participants, so I will try again with...Week 200! - Layout Contest
There are two parts to this, just like last time. You can choose to enter one or both of them, and if you enter both, your entries DO NOT have to match.Option A: Header/Icon:
I am thinking that our new layout will be this one
, with color changes as needed. Thus, your header should have a minimum width of 800 pixels and a height that is no greater than 430 pixels
(I think the one on the layout is a little tall XD). If you would like to test your header, the layout codes can be found here
Having some sort of main background color that can carry over to the rest of the layout would be nice, but is not necessary. If you don't use a solid background color and would like a certain color to be used in the background, include its hex code or a small square of it with your header.
Your icon should go with your header. :POption B: Profile Banner:
There is no set size for this, but the current one is a good baseline: 500 x 300 pixels
. Slightly larger or smaller is fine, but don't get too drastic. XDGuidelines for both options:
= Your graphics should include a minimum of three different characters.
= The text "xmen_icontest" or "X-men Icontest" (or something similar) should be on each piece somewhere. Other relevant text is allowed as well.
= An optional theme (if having themes helps you figure out what to design) would be our fifth
anniversary, which this challenge was supposed to coincide with. XD
= Each member is allowed to submit TWO entries for EACH option (for a maximum total of four graphic sets).
Submit the URLs (and any necessary color samples/codes) of your entries as a screened comment to this post. Questions? Comment and I'll do my best to clarify things.
Entries are due by midnight, Friday, April 10th
