Bonus Round 0: Graphics

Bonus Round 0: Graphics


Hello, sports fans, and welcome to SASO 2016! For our pre-game show, we'd like to start by creating graphics for your fellow teams.

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on May 26 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.


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 (imgur works well) and post here with the images themselves or a link to them.
  • If/when your team receives a gift (and 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: last name first name in alphabetical order by last name, and separated by a slash ( / ).
  • Replace RATING with "G" - "E", as explained here
  • List applicable major content tags in the first line of the comment
  • To paste an image into your comment, use this code: <img src="LINK TO YOUR IMAGE" />

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!

it's almost 3am, wings seem like a good idea. (eta: alternatively, here is a wingless version.)

i love it when i come to check for new comments in this bonus round and i see more stuff from you *v* your graphics are so pretty I LOVE THIS WING IDEA i actually considered doing something similar for a fill but couldn't figure out what wing stocks would mesh well with animanga styles... you pulled this off so well though and the effect in the center is so good! I LOVE HOW ALL YOUR GRAPHICS ARE SO CLEAN AND PRETTY WITH SUBTLE EFFECTS THAT LOOK SUPER NICE

oh my goodness, this is lovely... I love how light everything feels, how it feels suffused with light. I also want to totally agree with valoirs, that all your fills are so pretty, and the meaning you infuse into some of them are just so, so good. thank you for all your beautiful work!!

you are very welcome, i'm so glad you like it!! i've been told my writing style is basically "melancholy fluff" so like maybe it leaked over to my graphic design sensibilities LOL
