View Full Version : Signature of the Week Contest?



Medio

To showcase and practice some of our skills, I propose we have a Signature of the Week contest similar to many other forums.

Each week a theme will be decided on, and members will submit their works.
A public vote will be placed on the topic with all the entries.
A theme each week could be a different hero too.

Winner gets bragging rights.

Tell me what you think about this idea, as I would really like to put it to use since it will help members learn, showcase and critique other member's signatures.

It seems like a good way to conjure up some discussion :D

This PS fad thing is really odd. Participated in it the fad for a long time and realized that it just makes you cringe when you work on a larger canvas. Gives you the illusion that minimalism is the worst and that smudging every effect in the picture is the best. I've seen them all. :|

Depends on your individual perception.
I like minimalism, be it on small or larger canvases.

Anyways, SotW will definitely be implemented here.
Just not now as I feel the HoN community (specifically the FM one) needs to grow more. Plus we have some other more important things to help out with too. *hints at GR*

Trust me, I will let you know when this kicks off. ;)

When it does, could I be involved in moderating it?

I'll handpick a few of you guys, and a Graphics Request team will be put together.
They will moderate the (upcoming) SotW and GR sections.

Now off to convince the admins that SotW sections are necessary in HoN beta!
Wish me luck! @_@

i think sotw and we all use the same character would be pretty cool, different character each week. Tell them to put out more fan art while they are at it =P

So..
tl;dr version:

Anyway, I got the green light. When I feel that there is sufficient interest to keep this SotW thing going, a new subforum for this will be implemented.

I don't want to start a new subforum only to find that the interest in it peters out after a week.

wish i knew how to make my sig look more snazzy but this is what i got with my limited PS skills

Also would like to add that a sotw section would be awsome, not to mention get the flow on some much needed fan art. gogo voodoo jester/puppet master art! lol

Desirable, Tell me when we're going to start :D

Well the best way to start is for interest in Graphics to perk up. Namely, the involving in Graphics Requests. The more people who see great sigs being produced by our members, the more people who get interested, wanting sigs, learning how easy it is to make sigs with a bit of patience, and then, it slowly leads into many awesome twists where SotW exists, Graphic Shops and the like, and all sorts of yummy things.

(Insert smart quote here).

Why not? I'm in, guys.
Just to contribute to the fan media section here.

I was thinking we can have SOTW to bring in more members, and viewers.

I'll think about starting this signature stuff again. 4 years of PS wasted my life, and I'm willing to waste some more.

I do it in my spare time, mainly during school.

Hmm, interest in SotW looks promising.
I'll get it started once the subforum for that is implemented. :>

it would be awesome if winners got some sort of icon or something for the webby, but not neccesary.

Nah, I'd prefer it to be about improving skills, community discussion, and enjoying art :D
