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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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.)

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.

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

I love the beautiful watery colours in this! And wonderful fonts/composition as usual too - I don't think I'll ever get over how brilliant your aesthetic sense is <3 The DVD insert is definitely perfect for this pair!
