Rank Image Design Contest
« on: April 10, 2006, 10:54:40 pm »
After being in the forums for some months, I came to think that the forums should have something unique in it's design. So I came up with the idea to have a Design contest to replace the old rank stars (and moderator/admin squares or whatever) with something more stylish and original.


Here you can see the current rank marks/stars:


Admin
Global Moderator
Moderator
Regular member

Rules and guidelines

- You must/have to make only one image for every rank (4: Admin, Moderator and Regular member), since the images are simply repeated in the system (for example if someone has 3 stars, it's repeated three times).
- Remember to use your imagination, those doesn't have to be stars or such, but maybe something that would for example refer to the game, since the forum is about a specific project (LieroXtreme).
- Make the images in .gif format.
- Max size for the images are 20x25 (height*wide)

Since the images are rather small, I hope many as possible will take part of this since it shouldn't take long to make total of three images. You can also make more than one set.
Please send your images to me via PersonalMessage.

Deadline for this contest will be two weeks, so 24th April I will make a poll with all the images, and everyone can vote for their favourite set, (voting time will last for 1 week).

The winner will get 500 credits!

No more entries are taken, vote for the nominees here!:

Since I haven't gotten involved lately at a graphics standpoint, I figured I'd wip somthing together today.


So here's my first entry. I'm not real happy with how soft-colored they turned out, so maybe I'll recolor them if I get enough of the same feedback.

they could have a bit more contrast indeed, and maybe more differentiation between the moderator and regular member?

How about colors? I think I'm going to change the blue to yellow instead.

I liked the LieroX skin idea. Although I found an extremely cool one over the net.
I know it's a design contest but I think this just rocks.

I like the originality, but it doesn't quite fit with the whole worm/gun/blood theme liero tends to have. If they were guns it could possibly work, but swords just don't seem to have enough to do with liero.


Whew... it's alotta work to reshade these everytime. I made a few more colors to choose from:

Matalic blue colour for: Gloubel mod
matalic red  colour for: Moderators
Matalic, other colours for: the levles of posts.

Matalic appearances are extremely hard to produce at this size. It'll likely look like crap if I do that.

As far as '3D' goes, the shading is supposed to produce the dimensional effect. Without the shading I applied, you would find these to look much flatter, and less '3D' as you say.

There's also nothing stopping you from giving it a wing yourself. I'd be glad to see what you mean by 3D.

The only thing, I have against this competition is if you did not ask the admin's permission, I presume you did, but since they did not say anything about it, I would not be sure.

Hmm, weird you even think about that. Of course I ask for admin's permission and thoughts about things that concern the forums.

Magus, your suggestion looks nice but it is too large, and Spectro's comment about sums my opinions up. Those looks cool though. :)

Anyway, this contest seems to have started well and there are people interested about this. As I said, you should've posted the entries in PM, but I guess you can show your work here too (if not 100% finished yet) for example if you want comments about it before posting.

But remember to sent the finished works to me via PrivateMessage!!

INFO CONCIDERING THE CONTEST.
I forgot to add the both moderator stars to the first post, so now there has to be total of 4 different images (Admin, Global Moderator, Moderator and regular member)!!

Maybe 25x25 max?

Re: Rank Image Design Contest
« Reply #15 on: April 11, 2006, 09:29:32 pm »
25x25 might be a bit large for this type of thing. I'd suggest keeping them smaller than 20 in most cases. Mine ended up a little larger (1pxl), but that's how all my work turns out anyhow ::)

Umm, a good question.
I think that 25x25 is too large, but I think 20x25 could be the max (25 height, 20 wide). Because it can be higher than 20 pixels (IMO).
So, 20x25 could be set as the max size, I'll add this to the first post too :)

If there would be five images of 20x25, it would take the space shown in the picture below as black:



Which I think is quite good, or what does everyone think?

Looks suitable. Good choice.
I dont like how on the Blue/Dark Skin all pictures are outlines in blue. It defeats the purpose of a see-through background.

Updated and finilized without anti-alias. That's what made them look so funky on the dark background. ::)

This'll be my final product:
