2023 Q4 Banner Submission Themes

Post by Arano »

For inspiration, see our banner design archive.

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.

October Theme: SPOOKY SEASON Deadline end of September
I think you know the drill by now, for this month we choose violence: give me bloody battle scenes, bring back the Ginga dead, all the good stuff from the Mangas/Animes!

November Theme: The Supreme Commander Deadline end of October
Have we ever had a Riki spotlight banner theme before? I feel like we need one! For this theme use any and all images of Riki to make a banner, this includes any fanart* you may have drawn of him, and any merch like plushies.
*Note: The fanart has to have been drawn by you, please don't use other peoples artwork.


December: Seasonal spirit Deadline end of November
Option 1: Create a banner showing winter snow scenes, scenes of characters with family, any and all cosy holiday vibes.
Option 2: Aka'ari brothers dressed as Santa. I will not elaborate.

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. Updated with old and new logos 2021
  • If you use any other program, here are the Ginga Board Logo downloads: Original Logo + New Blue 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.

I just couldn't be bothered to edit it out so I went "screw it, I'm leaving it in and putting in whatever the official English translation has in it" :OUT:
