The 5.0 Banners Submission Thread
« on: Mar 02, 2011, 06:15 AM »
Back in January, I put the call out to a number of people to create new banner art for VOID's upcoming design.  The message below is that original email, and I now extend that request for art to the community as a whole:

I'm currently well into development of VOID version 5.0.  The big change this time around will be the unification of both the forum and main site into a single entity (along with a whole slew of other stuff).  No longer will the site be two separate logins, layouts, or designs, but everything under one roof.

Another piece of the redesign will be to bring the rotation of header art back to the main site.  We've had Andre's pretty face on the main site for all of 4.0, but it's time for something new.  Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on your opinion of the current crop) the current header art on the forum can't be used due to the new site being wider, and the fact that the VOID crest will be laid on top of the headers.

The specs for the new headers are 990px wide by 200px tall.  However, please be aware the crest is 300px by 200px and will take up the rightmost area.  It's more-or-less an oval, so the crest will not take up the entire 300x200 rectangle.  Examples of the layout and crest placement on existing headers are linked below for additional clarification.

Examples:






In each of the examples, the crest now covers an area of art... not acceptable.

"VOID" or "EnterVOID.com" are optional.  It's unnecessary to include "Impact is Immenent" or the VOID logo.  Also, do not include the crest, as this is a separate file that will be floating above the header image.

Please send any completed art back to me.  Color is preferred, though you may send pencils or inks if you prefer someone else to color.  Secrecy is not necessary, as any finished art may be posted to your individual websites.

I'm sending this email to some of my closest friends and greatest artists VOID has produced.  If you're able to contribute once again to a community that still loves you, you'll have my eternal thanks.  If not, that's perfectly understandable.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

My thanks,
Kevin Birtcher

The one David and I did together



obviously do not put the crest on your banners, only leave the space for it.

Just a question that occurred to me, so since the forum and site will be one unity what will happen to the banners we have now?  I feel that it would be a shame to lose them and hope that they will remain viewable in some capacity.

most likely they'll remain in obscurity on the site servers, as with most of the other discontinued features.

If it'll get you to finish them, I'll color them. The same goes for anyone.

I'm still trying to get one done myself, my original idea didn't work out so well so I'm working on something else.

It would actually, but I'm away for the weekend & they're at home so it wouldn't be immediate. Thanks though!

I am going to try to color this, but if somebody else would like to, that would be fine by me... :0 (I could provide a bigger version if so)

Uncropped



Cropped



I wasn't sure on the exact location of where Squid wanted the sheep but this should have him peaking from around the corner of the Void crest

I kept trying to do big exciting group pictures but figured trying to have a little vague story going on was more up my alley. The Void crest will of course be covering up a lot of the right side of the image so I didn't exactly go out of my way to make a gorgeous city scape haha
