2019 Q2 Banner Submission Themes

Post by Arano » Tue Mar 05, 2019 10:02 pm

If you'd like to design a banner for the board, below are the themes for Q2 of 2019 for you to choose from! Thank you everyone who submitted banners for Q1!

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.

April Theme choice: Deadline end of March
April fool theme! Bring out your anime/manga bombs and ginga memes!
This month is exclusively anime/manga bomb and ginga meme related. The sillier the better, have fun :KRUMP: For this theme you can choose to leave the logo out of your design entirely (or make your own)

May Theme Choice: Deadline end of April
Mothers Day theme! For this theme obviously your banner must be based around a ginga character who is a mother. Some main character choices are Fuji, Cross, Sakura, Reika, Lydia and Koyuki, but feel free to be creative and pick an unnamed mother who appears in the manga (eg Kyoushiro's mother), or pick a mother from another Takahashi manga series entirely!

June Theme choices: Deadline end of May
Pride month theme: The month of the only Rainbow Warrior in the Ginga series - Pink Dragon! You are free to make it all about him or crack pair him with another character.
Open wolf theme: Create a banner using the wolves from GNG.

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.

For June, I would be into a sea/river thing!

I guess here's the first April banner because the instant I read "bring out your bombs" I knew what I had to do.

Loving the Jurassic Gin banner, Digsu! :D

I'm definitely in the club for a Mother's Day theme for May, too. It'd be lovely to see all our favourite Ginga mamas up there. :heart:

As for June, how about an LGBT+ theme for pride month? Or it's also the month that winter begins in the southern hemisphere but somehow that sounds less enthralling...

An LGBTQ+ theme would be cool, but I'm wondering how that'd work in a series as conservative as Ginga? Would it just be based on fan ships? Headcanons?

Also that raptor gin banner is incredible

Yes, it would have to be based on fan ships. GB/Sasuke, Reika/Koyuki, Ken/Kagetora are some that come to mind.

RAPTOR GIN RETURNS!

Mothers day theme is great, that will be the theme for May :)

LGBTQ+ theme is interesting. I don't think it should include fanships though... I think it should focus entirely on Pink Dragon as the only canon "nod" to this demographic, so how about fleshing out his character more. I mean he's the only okama and was important enough to be a hakkenshi... so surely some of the wolves must have had a soft spot for him nudge nudge wink wink.
What if it was a crack pairing challenge? Pink Dragon's defining character takeaway is that he's homosexual. So, let's allow him to actually be that: pair him with another wolf character!
What do you think?

That could be one choice for the month, the other choice could simply be wolf themed for those who don't want to participate in the above?

Well, it's not a bomb, but hopefully this works for the April Fool's theme? :p I changed the dogs to bears and bears to dogs.
