2019 Q1 Banner Submission Themes

Post by Arano » Sat Dec 08, 2018 11:42 pm

If you'd like to design a banner for the board, here are the first themes for Q1 of 2019 for you to choose from! There is no competition, so all banners submitted will be used in random rotation as per the current ones in their designated month. You can create as many banners as you like and if you want to make a banner for all 3 rounds you are of course free to do so :)

Design instructions and how to submit your banners are below the theme details.

January Theme choices: Deadline end of December
- Open theme using last Wars characters only to celebrate the end of the series!


February Theme choices: Deadline end of January
- Valentines: Romantic couples (eg Ben & Cross, Reika & Hiro) or platonic friendships (eg Weed and Jerome)
- Anti-valentines: Mutsu Generals theme - it is the month of Kisaragi after all! Either the characters themselves, relations of, notable interactions with other characters (eg Kisaragi and Terry)


March Theme choices: Deadline end of February
- OC interaction: Do you have a Ginga OC? Include your character interacting with a Takahashi character of your choice.
- BEARS!

Banner Creation info/rules:

Design your banner(s) at 1,800px wide by 394px tall at 72dpi.
  • If you have photoshop/GIMP, you can download a template here.
  • If you use any other program click here to download the Ginga Board Logo.
  • The logo does not have to be centered horizontally, it can go anywhere in the space as long as the size stays the same. You are allowed to alter the colour.
  • There will be a credit box added with your name to either end of the banner where space allows (as the current banners show). Please be mindful of this and make sure you leave space at one end.
  • You can use images from the Free Image Gallery/scans of your own or draw the characters yourself. If you draw it yourself, you may include your artist signature in the corner, but otherwise please design the banner free of any text.
How to submit your banner design:

Submit your banner design by uploading it to a hosting site like imgur and posting it in a reply in this topic.
Please save your file as a high res JPEG or a PNG.

If nobody makes a Sirius tribute banner for next month I'mma be super disappointed in y'all :P4:

What pic resolution would you guys recommend for a GB banner if I manage to make one this time? I tried to do a TLW-themed banner last month but there wasn't any room for the logo..

I predict Gingastar's banner for Janurary is gonna be great, since they loves Sirius vs Orion a lot XD

I'm excited to try making some of these! I don't exactly have ginga OCs, but I do have some dogs ocs...

That's a cool set!

By the way, I can't see the banner anymore on mobile since the first bunch of rotating submissions was uploaded?

Resolution would be 72dpi as that is screen resolution :)

I did my banner submission for the January theme! I chose to draw Monsoon and base it on my fave volume colour of TLW, volume 19 ^_^

Heavily inspired by the ending of the GDW anime, here's a good boy enjoying the spring of Ohu, finally free of his tormentor though still a bit uncertain because the past few months have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for him.

If it turns out Bob somehow died during the chapters we've missed I'm going to be extremely displeased and not just because that would make this banner canonically impossible :P4:

Thank you~

I don't have either of those, mostly because I draw infrequently enough that I don't really bother posting it anywhere when I do. I am very lazy yes.
