Banners for ISML 2012

Post by Crisu » Wed Dec 28, 2011 11:33 pm

Update [Feb 2012]: Front-page banner submissions are closed for the 2012 season. Thanks so much, and we'll see all of you again in 2013. Blog-sized buttons and mini-banners are open year-round, since more is better for getting the word out among anime communities and giving blog owners a variety to choose from.

We have a rotating banner system at the top of the ISML pages. You can help contribute to it!
  • Dimensions are 988x140 pixels.
  • Must have the phrase "International Saimoe League 2012" on it.
  • Must have the official ISML logo.
  • Don't show any character's eyes, if any are present.
  • Keep these relatively abstract, neutral, and anonymous. Using pretty backgrounds is encouraged.
  • No prominent quotes. But if your design includes random words and phrases in the background, that should be fine.
  • Keep the corners clear of text or logos. Leave about 10px of space.
http://archive.internationalsaimoe.com/ ... go2012.psd

The fonts used in the PSD are "Segoe Print" and "Brush Script Std."

Not every submission will be accepted, but all contributors should do their very best! ^_^

Aside from banners, you can also submit buttons and mini-banners for blogs or other social networking sites. Example:

See the 2011 Banners thread for additional examples.

I certainly tried my best! (Nihihi, looking forward to Ichigo-Sora's... or Marinara's... ♥) I guess I will try to add more when I can. Should we edit our posts when we do, or should we just make a new post?

Pretty banners both of you! You both have very noticeable styles :)

I'll try to get some banners up whenever I can, and I look forward to seeing works from others!

Great work, all of you :)!

Hikari-chan's all have this solemn style to them, like what Kholdy did in the opening video for 2011.

I adore your winter scarf fetish, JLoable! Your third banner is my favorite so far. (Is that Yuru Yuri?)

Nice variety Lighteningsky. I like how your first banner has more "breathing space" than the others.

This really gets me fired up for the new season.

@Crisu Don't know if that's intentional, but there still seems to be at least one 2011 banner in rotation.

Thanks, everyone! These are wonderful; outstanding quality. All 10 have been added to the rotation.

Right now it's okay to edit your posts. :) If this thread gets larger, though, I'll leave a note saying otherwise.

Cytrus, since the new banners are using the same filename, it's possible your browser still has the old banners cached.

@Cytrus: I agree! Everyone's is absolutely beautiful.

[19:54:10] <Hikari-chan> I wanna take everyone's banners home ;__;

And thanks, Crisu! I'll edit my post when I decide to make some more. And I encourage everyone else to make at least 10 so we can make the rotation (and my folder of banners) explode!

That's the [email protected] :p
The first two are notable ISML-characters as well

And for the winter-scarf fetish... That's true :p But I did it mostly because there would be a certain contrast between the banners (Summer-Winter)

I like the seasonal themes that each of your banners hold and your use of text positioning is great! But you may want to watch the quality of the images of the banners, they seem a little blurry -- and did ImageShack resize your banners? :( The dimensions should be 988x140!

The first one reminds me of Fuuko from Clannad. No idea about the second one. Seems like I'm really bad at this X).

Actually the first one is Akiyama Mio and the second one Gokou Ruri :3

Great work, Spindler. The first one is great with all the pink fluffiness spreading out.

Random commentary and attempt to guess some of the characters in the banners:

@JLoable:
#3. Yayoi Takatsuki...and Chihaya Kisaragi? I'm sure about the first one since I can easily recognize Yayoi's hairstyle, but not so much the second one. ._.

And your first banner is that of Mio? What the? When did? @_@ AFAIK, I only rarely saw Mio wearing a ponytail in the series proper, but until you mentioned it was her, I didn't recognize her in that banner!

@lighteningsky:
#1. Hatsune Miku? Her hair color and twintails are the most recognizable things about her.
#3. Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi. The Mitakihara Junior High uniforms were the giveaway.
#4. Latooni Subota? The facial structure and hairstyle has led me to believe it's her. But I've never seen Latooni wear a kimono, even in fanart... :|

@Spindler:
#1. Hinagiku Katsura? Long pink hair. And she wore an elegant gothic lolita dress in one pagebreak of the manga.
#2. Ohana Matsumae? Hairstyle and kimono.

Anyway...lovely works, everyone. :onion7:

I think the other girl was Iori... And yeah guessing Mio is hard, in this picture you can't really recognize her.

Btw @lightningsky : I love you Satori Komeji banner!

1 and 3 are correct, 4 is a good guess. :)

Thanks, and good job! I wasn't sure if anyone would recognize Satori. I really like your Ruri banner too.

I thought Satori was obvious so I didn't bring her up... but I'm sure my avatar is enough to betray my 'affilation'.

Since it's already 2 o'clock here in Japan, akemashite omedetou gozaimasu to everyone!
