Title: Ancient Legion Forum Banner


K Arthur90 - March 14, 2009 03:27 AM (GMT)
We got a new forum skin! We got new members! And we got new needs:
We need a new forum clan banner.
The one we currently have is the golden one you can see above (of course ^_^), but how about we revamp it as well? Give it a little boost?
To create a banner for the forum, it got to have some rules:
1. Create it as a PNG image. It has got the best quality, and it can use alpha channel.
2. Maximum size: 750px x 150px. Do not exceed that size as it will distort the forum's skin.
3. Although the banner can be about pretty much anything, the main goal should be a way to represent's AL's hawtness, while keeping in mind the medieval theme from Runescape. Also, you can use any font you want, but make sure the title and any other words are legible.
4. At last, the color scheme can be any you want, but when you "preview" your banner, picture it on the forums. Think if it'll fit and go well with the current color scheme.

As with the signature, we'll have all the banners applications, and the members will get to vote on the best.

Oh, BTW. Just a small kickstart for peeps that are having a hard time coming up with something original. You can use images from RuneScape (HD preferably). However, apply bloom and blur edges effects on the image so it may look even hawter.

Be sure to create something unique. I'd like to see something new ^_^

My first attempt at a banner.
Here's the banner,

And here's the preview:

I might tweak the words a little. They're kinda aliased, but that's easy to fix.

This is what i have so far. I just need to add some text.

craiglock1 - March 16, 2009 02:49 AM (GMT)
Text lol?

It's good, though, you just need text =]

Kerkennah - March 16, 2009 03:29 AM (GMT)

Fivey Is Pwnage - March 16, 2009 02:32 PM (GMT)

Nice!

But perhaps get a better one, not default? Try dafont.com for fonts.

yeha dafont.com is good for fonts like banners and that but also could you like make the lettering stand out more

I was trying to resist, but I couldn't. :lol: I'll give it a try I guess.

Nice well made banners!
@Fivey, you either gonna have to use a text/font that highlights from the background, or "unpollute" it a little bit.
I'd go with Aaron's for now.

PS.: I was wondering (not criticizing, since I did it too) why we use a medieval crusader helm for ours banners? :P
I answer: They pwn.

Haha, I was going to say the same thing.

Sorry for taking so long! I couldn't get on the comp that had PdN for a while, so I couldn't really work on anything 'till now. Here are my results:

Without Sub-Text:

Use which ever one you prefer, I wasn't sure if Sub-Text was allowed.

PD: When does the voting start?

mts156 - March 20, 2009 05:41 AM (GMT)
I would try to make one, but I can already see I'd lose. :D

Who says we'll ever make fun of you for it if you did try. We'd like to have all available entries from everyone that way we can see everyone's creativity! :D

Chuffa - March 20, 2009 10:06 AM (GMT)
If this is still going i'll try one when i get my pc back :)

K Arthur90 - March 20, 2009 05:18 PM (GMT)
Lit, I'd go for the sub-text one.
As for the voting, it is up to the leaders. But I might create the poll as soon as we have at least 6 or seven entries.

I like that one too, but I think I'd like it more as a sig rather than a Banner. My personal opinion.

tidus6570 - March 21, 2009 05:02 AM (GMT)
i think, we should make the site background into like a banner, and have the names of all the clan members to date on it. it would take awhile but it would be really neat.. just a suggestion

lit i like yours the best.. with the sub writing or whatever :D

K Arthur90 - March 21, 2009 06:15 PM (GMT)
@ Redeyes: A forum banner is nothing more than an extended forum signature :P

@ Tidus: I don't think a screenie would give a nice banner. What you suggested would make a nice advertising image, but not a banner.

Lit - March 21, 2009 10:03 PM (GMT)
If no one else is entering I believe we should proceed to vote.

nj741 - March 22, 2009 08:55 PM (GMT)
i'll enter one

K Arthur90 - March 22, 2009 09:34 PM (GMT)
And I think lafemmetroi was going to enter one too.

nj741 - March 22, 2009 09:49 PM (GMT)
