Well, I figured it was time to get some sort of contest going again. Also looking at doing something else that doesn't involve designing something, so other people can get in on the action.

The goal: Design yours truly a signature image (If you hadn't noticed, I am lacking one!)

Run Time: 3 Weeks, Ends September 13th at 11:59 PM. Should give plenty of time for anyone that wants to participate, hopefully enough since two weeks seemed a little short last time.

Rules:
1) Sig image can be any size at the max of 600x130 or below.
2) It can say whatever you like.
3) You can use whatever design, pictures, characters, etc.
4) You can post the sig images here, or link to them here so we can all see your work.
5) You can do as many as you like.

Recommendation:
1) If you are going to use characters, it would be a good idea to look at my top 30 lists for the best characters to use :wink:

We will have a vote afterwards to find the favorite of the people, however, for this one I do reserve the right to choose my favorite over the vote of the people, sorry 8) .

The Prize: Astro Boy [1980] Complete Series Collection

I will contact the winner and get your address after that point.

To give you guys an idea of what to design, or what I am looking for, I have decided it would be easiest to just release my ANN guy so you can all see my favorite series, characters, rankings, basically what I love and what I hate. It is now the "My Anime Link" in my sig. Also feel free to ask any questions you may have about the design if you are looking for inspiration, aka type of things I would like on it, or if I would like this or that, whatever.

That's it, good luck everyone!

EDIT: I have decided to up the sig size to 600x130... for now!!!!!!!!!!! MUAHAHAHA Wait a couple more days and it will be something else!

I dunno... looks kinda dark... gothic... uh, spooky?
Okay, I don't know much about you, acmurphy, but I think the sig should first of all fit your personality, and your top list of Anime should only be a supplement of sorts.
Well, in case you have a dark and gothic personality, Moonunit's idea should be great.
Personality stuff left aside - good work, moonie.

Yes, he turns into that during one of the Buu sagas.

Edit- @Acmurphy
Would you like the bottom text to say "Animetric Owner and Reviewer" or "Site Admin"?

Moonunit,

Site Admin works fine, Animetric Owner and Reviewer just seems a little long for the image. However, just use whichever one works best for the sig image. Like the Majin Vegita one btw :)

42317,

I don't really have a preference on the type of image or how it's done. I am just looking to get something that looks good with characters that I like on it. This doesn't need to be that deep, I don't need it tailored to my personality :?

I guessed you would say something like that. :D
Well, that's what you say and mean, but will people understand?
We have already seen that forum participants are associated with their avatars, and by choosing an avatar you convey certain notions about yourself - why should it be different with sigs?
It's in the concept of sigs to allow a glimpse of our personality (or is it just my personal opinion?).
And eventually you are the site admin, the King Crab. We are krill, so to speak, our sigs are not that important, but you represent the whole bunch of us. 8)
No lecture intended - just a bit of thought.

I'm not spectacular with computer image editors; though I may be willing to give it a shot. I'll be using the GIMP image editor, just to mention. What do you want in your sig?

I don't think I will make any more.

42317,

lol, too much thought towards such a simple thing :wink: though I do get what you are trying to convey.

However, since I am choosing my favorite from the bunch, the voting is just to see what everyone likes best etc., it will be the image that I like the most, thus the one that best fits me. Since I suck at this stuff it is really the only way to go to be myself a sig image.

Moonunit,

Thanks for all your hard work!

is it just me or is 600x150 quite large for signatures?
i am only a part of one other forum and they have no set signature. can anybody list a website that uses large signatures? i personally think that if many people used 150pix signatures it would get cluttered. i am such a minimalist... :)

oh well, i guess i could always block them.


making something personal for someone else would make a challenging contest nonetheless.


EDIT: on the topic of signatures. what anime is storm shinobi's from?

SMACKS FOREHEAD!

I meant to increase the width not the height. Whoops. lol, yes 150 would be a little large for the height, I just wanted them to be wider since at 600 px they have a lot of area to the right that is empty.

Correcting it now.

Thanks for helping me notice that, don't know how I screwed that one up :(

(You can still make it any size within that range as well, so you don't need to change them to meet the 8-- px width or anything.)
