Bonus Round 0: Graphics

SASO 2017 BR0


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 10 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


To start off our third year of SASO, let's make gifts of banners and icons for the other teams in the event!


RULES
  • Create a set of 2-6 icons or 1-3 banners (or a combo) for any team that is not your own. Here's the Team Roster for your convenience.
  • You can use: official series art (screencaps, manga pages, artbook/magazine illustrations, etc.), fanart (ONLY fanart that you have permission to use), quotes, lyrics, gifs...whatever you want.
  • Upload them somewhere (e.g., PostImage or TinyPic) and post here with the images themselves or a link to them.
  • When your team receives a gift (feel free to request icons/banners if you're in need!) you should thank the gifter. You don't have to use the gifts if you don't want to.


FORMAT
Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Format your fill like this:

FILL: TEAM [YOUR SHIP] for [GIFT SHIP], [RATING]
  • YOUR SHIP = the name of your team
  • GIFT SHIP = the team you're giving the gift to
    • Remember the format is last name first name in alphabetical order by last name, and separated by a slash ( / ). This is important so people can easily ctrl+F for their team's gifts!
  • Replace RATING with "G" - "E", as explained here
  • List applicable major and additional content tags
  • Copy/paste/fill out the following form into your comment box. Delete the guidance text that's in parentheses.

Your comment should look like this:

Example of the comment layout

Remember to play nice and be kind.



SCORING
These numbers apply to your team as a whole, not each individual teammate.

Fills 1-5: 10 points each
Fills 6-10: 5 points each
Fills 11+: no points, they're just for fun!

(This is not how most bonus round entries will be scored, by the way.)



RESOURCES
Pixlr - an online (no download necessary) image editing program. A great place to start if you're on an older computer or one that's low on hard drive space.

GIMP - Despite its unfortunate name, GIMP is an excellent free image editing program.

Lost and Taken - A collection of high resolution textures.

Font Squirrel, Lost Type Foundry, and League of Moveable Type - Free high quality font resources. They're all hand-picked or created by professional graphic designers.

Icon-Extras - A resource for icon tutorials and the like. Also features textures, brushes, bases etc. that are particularly good for icons (rather than the all-purpose textures at Lost and Taken).

Remember: Dreamwidth icons are 100x100, and can have a maximum filesize of 40 kb.

Banners are typically around 150-400px tall and 400-800px wide. This is pretty flexible, though.


Etc.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!
