Hey y'all, and welcome to the official GTAForums Signature of the Week competition!

Congratulations to last week's winner, blitz, who created this AMAZING signature.

The top 3 results were:

 

blitz [7]

UNRATED69 [5]

ska [4]

 

For those that haven't heard, SOTW is a weekly competition where GTAF artists create signatures following a specific theme, and then the community votes on the winner.

The victor receives bragging rights for that week, and a bag of potato chips.

Made from solid gold.

 

Figured I'd try something new this week, so...

 

This week's DUAL theme is:

 

Vector Flowers

 

The deadline for entry is Friday, September 30th.

So would something like this be fine? I'm really braindead right now, so I'll probably make another, better entry afterwards.

@blitz- That's not really flowers, more just leaves and stems, so I don't know if it would work.

 

@ska- You cheeky bastard. sly.gif I'm almost tempted to let it in. But, like Mockage said, it's flowers, not flour.

It's fine, I'll come up with some new things if I have the time wink.gif

 

@ska that's genius.

But they sound the same.

 

It's fine, I'll give the next SOTW a go. tounge.gif

So? It's fine as long as he added something from his part.

Well then, my apologies Mandog.

Lets see you try one Hot Shot.

This is coming from a person who Google searched an image and applied a sh*tty Photoshop filter to it.

Nah. More or less wondering why you're acting like a cocky asshole over someone (with blatantly obvious graphical expertise) not liking the subject of this SOTW, when you really have no room to talk.

lol

 

I'll try one later. Why can't I do it now? Because I'm going to the Mosque (being serious here). When I'm back I probably won't be going on, so tomorrow since school's off (holiday).

 

Also, don't be such a little prick. "u mad bro",

 

mhm, grow up?

Please, guys and gals, let's just relax and get along.

 

If you believe someone's entry is poor, simply do not vote for it. People have a right to enter their creations in contests like this, even if they are a bit un-creative. In life, your project you spent weeks making from scratch will often be beaten by something pleasing to the eye and extremely easy to make.

 

Conversely, people are not required to enter competitions if they don't want to or feel the theme is poor.

 

In the future, perhaps the SOTW entry thread should also include a voting thread for next week's theme? smile.gif

I like this idea.

Nah, it'd create chaos on the Visual Arts forum.

 

Or, we could have just one poll and make a mod change in the entries every once in a while. But it'd take time and effort, I don't think it'll happen.

 

How about we perform the votes in the SOTW topic itself?

How about, whomever places first in SOTW gets to chose the next theme.

 

 

 

(Did I use "whom" correctly?)

Just basically throw a bunch of ideas into the OP and see what people have to say, I guess. whatsthat.gif

 

@ Blitz - that's what I meant. biggrin.gif

No, it should be whoever, because it's the subject of the sentence. Whom is used when it's the object of the sentence.

 

At least, I think that's right.

[/grammar]

 

OT: I don't think a completely separate poll for the them would be necessary. I think just suggesting themes for next week in this thread would be enough, and whoever decides to create the topic next week. Or we could go with DSM's idea of the winner deciding.

Just gonna chime in and agree that this is a pretty uninspired choice of theme. Not because flowers are gay or anything, but because it's too easy. The amount of vector brushes out there for flowers and plants and what not is ridiculous. All you have to do for this is write some text, match the colour of the text with a vector flower brush, apply the brush at either end and maybe one or two variations in the middle, add a stroke and a drop-shadow and you've got a decent looking sig with no effort or orginality.

 

Broader themes, rather than a requirement to include a specific subject, are a lot better and give more room for inspiration in my opinion.
