Not too long ago, i emailed ozy (the guy who runs the bugrave website) to ask if he wanted to exchange banners. Not only did he agree, but he said he wanted to make a banner for my site to use on his links page too. I was really honored so i decided to put his work up on my own site. He actually wound up making three more, just to mess around with different styles and sizes, and i put them all online at the bottom of my links page.
As you can see, his banners look a hell of a lot better than mine so i was pretty happy about it overall. Lately i’ve been so busy updating the site and making videos, that i don’t think i’ll ever have time to go back and redo my ghetto banners.
So i figured i’d ask here to see if anyone wants to make a gift banner for my site, since there are so many talented artists on this forum.
Just to make it clear, i’m not in dire need of banners or anything. It’s just kind of an opportunity for anyone who wants to flex some artistic skills without anyone telling them strictly what to use as a theme or background or anything.
The only thing i request is that you keep it relatively small, around the same ballpark size as the ones i have now. And if you wanna make more than one, that’d be awesome. Having two works by the same artist gives a way better impression of his/her versatility and range.
So with that said, please try to avoid making animated banners. They tend to look horrible unless they’re of a gigantic filesize, and i’m pretty much always going to have to refuse putting them on the site. If you want to run an almost guaranteed risk of going through all that trouble for nothing, that’s up to you. Otherwise, please make them non-animated.
As far as time restrictions go, there are none! Take as long as you want. In fact, the longer the better. If you don’t rush, maybe you can use this as a chance to learn something new or refine your skills. I’ll be accepting contributed banners that i feel fit well with the site layout for pretty much as long as the website is online, so there’s no rush whatsoever.
So, anyone interested?
