You should add a color (or gradient) style to the image to cover up the rough edges.

Well, it's probably pretty useless for me to choose a topic now anyway since people are probably already starting on this one. Whatever, maybe next time. turn.gif

We may have to extend the date if it seems there's no entries thus far.

Well, all you have to do is mess with a picture of a car, or a bus, or train, or horse and buggy, or boat, or anything that moves you from point A to point B, right? confused.gif

Thought I'd have a go at this.

Edit: Holy crap, that gif exported to 2 MB (hence the slow load). Is there any way I could compress it?

Edit 2: Got it down to 1 MB. Still a bit big though. confused.gif

Unrated, your sign is looking good and all, but in my thoughts in a SOTW you're supposed to create your own art, and not copy a .gif from tumblr and resize it. Am I wrong?
Don't get me wrong, but I've been in design forums since 2007 and in every forum you have to create your own work in these contests. wink.gif

@Eagled I disagree. Even though it's just re-sized and he added a border, it's still been graphically modified.

QFT.

Rules should state work has to be your own. I've got no issue with people using Google Images (or other) and using renders to create things... but there needs to be a certain amount of effort other than just re-sizing something confused.gif

A signature is any kind of graphic, user created or otherwise. The contest isn't about the person's creativity, simply the best looking signature. Cropping the image, adding effects, resizing etc. all counts as image editing.

Why do I always get the new page when replying to someone. whatsthat.gif

EDIT: Forget my other entry, I'll be using this one instead. smile.gif

It gets annoying though when ALL people do is crop an image. bored.gif

I agree to some extent. However it still takes effort to crop and position an image correctly, and the person may have added some effects which aren't visible at first glance. If I'm using a photo I always alter it in some way. In previous SOTW there was some members who would take the piss and draw stupid things in MS Paint, like a few lines, that was annoying.

It's just for fun anyway, I cartainly don't take it too seriously and I know a few others don't.

People have to find the image too, you know. It's like picking songs for a music playlists. You didn't write the music, but you brought it all together. cool.gif

I just hope people will vote for the one that is most visually appealing and that this doesn't/hasn't turned into some 'popularity contest.'

On many of my other forums, we would submit an entry to a designated graphics leader as well as the original image, but to my understanding, there isn't really a single or single few people for this particular section, so it couldn't really work.

Well Narcis is the forum leader here, but he is usually swamped by people looking for requests. I wouldn't mind looking after all of that if it was to be enacted.
