Signature Competition!

Here's the idea- you will be supplied with an image later on in the post. You will take said image and weave it into some sort of signature that can be used in a public forum. You will then send your sig design to me (fourstring04@aol.com) so that no one will see it and steal your ideas. On February 1st, the submissions will be posted in the forum and, depending on the number of participants, a vote will be held to determine a grand master and the next two in line.

That's right, here at HBH we realize how important it is to compliment your frosty, mechanical coding expertise with the elegance of combining colors and images into something that people want to look at. This competition serves purposes twofold: to inspire you to look into the more graphical side of designing images (and in turn, websites), and you get to create a kick-ass signature that you can use for... whatever, should you choose.

The winners will be granted challenge points in the following distribution:

1st place - 75 points
2nd place - 50 points
3rd place - 25 points


Now for the fun part. Rules.

1) You must use a recognizable piece of the supplied image. Throwing in a pixel here or there and calling it a day may be hilarious, but it will be promptly disqualified. And you will then be shot.

2) You can submit as many ideas as you like, but know that the less original a work is, the less likely it is to win so don't ruin your odds by stupidly submitting the same thing fifteen thousand times.

3) Your submission cannot contain any reference to your name. This is to keep the votes based strictly on the art itself, rather than who submitted it. If you save the Photoshop/GIMP/Paint file, you can always add it in later, if you want.

4) The maximum image size is 300x700, but it's recommended that you stay below as this is quite large.

5) Deadline is February 1st. Meet it, or die.

And, without further ado, the image.

Enjoy

Are there no clean renders of those guys -_-, or do we get to cut them out ourselves?

Damnit I suck at graphics, I give it a go. We just need to use some portion of the image supplied or the whole thing and rework it.

@korg - You only need to use some recognizable piece of the image.

I'll be sure to get in on this. Good luck to all participants Smile.

I... don't see why not. Go for it.

Oh, and I received yours, hellboundhackersok. So far I fully support it as the single most awesome first submission I've ever gotten in this competition since I started it yesterday.

Thank you!
I think you just got me motivated enough to actually try it Smile
My graphic skills aren't the best, so I'll probably get destroyed though.


The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive.

A wild Lemur appears!

Most of the way done on this one. Pen tool works better than a polygonal lasso for cutouts by the way.

You're supposed to use the pen tool with a drawing tablet.

Whoops forgot about this.

You know tablets are getting really cheap these days mine was, but it's only like 6 inches by 5? or something it's more than enough for having some fun. Think I picked it up for under 20. Bit glitchy under X though.

Alright you guys- there's only a single month remaining for you to get off your asses and make something. I've kept up my end of the bargain and have successfully received a whole eight submissions. Now it's time for you guys to do the honorable thing and start submitting those signatures.
