PostSubject: Spring Banner Contest!   Thu Mar 12, 2009 6:38 pm

Eternal Silence is our winner! Congratulations. I'll personally resize what is needed for the graphics changes over the next few days.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
March 27th 2009

Here are the banners! If you don't see yours here, pm me so I can put it up quickly!

Voting polls are open until the end of April 1st! Some sizes are a bit "off" so I'll personally re-size the winning banner.

#1

#3

#4

#5

#6

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well I've thought about it and the forum's theme is a winter theme. So since I'm going to redesign the forum/site for spring, I am thinking that we can have a Harvest Moon Banner contest for the forum itself!

Rules
What goes on the banner:
1.)Spring Theme! So as long as you make it look Spring-ish, it's fine! I can't really elaborate on it because there's nothing else to say (if you add snow, that means it's a winter theme)
2.)You need the words "Harvest Dreams" somewhere on the banner
3.)Use Harvest Moon type pictures.
EDIT -(can I use fan art? - ask the original artist if you can first)
- (Can I draw? ~Yes)
-(You can use official HM art. Here's some official HM pics http://www.hmeternity.net/art_archives/ )

Size (IMPORTANT! Many members sent me banners that are larger than the max size below!)
-Minimum Width/Height: 400px ◊ 150px
-Max Width/Height: 700px ◊ 200px

What Program Can I use?: Anything that can help you make the banner
EDIT: Noticing that many do not own an expensive graphics program, here's a recommended free one called Gimp http://www.gimp.org/

Winning: your banner will be displayed at the top of this forum until Summer time and you'd be on the event win list ^_~ Don't worry about matching the forum colors. (I am going to redesign the forum for a spring feel after I see the winning banner.)

Duration: Well, I would like to end it on March 21st (in which spring starts) but I predict it might be too short. This banner making ends on March 26th. I'd need a few days to have the votes and to redesign things by March 30th.

Submission: Send to me through pm. In the pms, there's a "host an image" button if you don't have an image storage account such as Photobucket.

I see you guys are a bit in a fix because you guys have no graphics program.

I'll list some free ones that may help you here, and in the future when you want to design anything. ^_^

Gimp: Very popular free graphics program. I've never used it myself but a friend has used it, and created mini buttons, and banners.
http://www.gimp.org/

There's more, linking to this article but GIMP itself is the most recommended for as a free graphics program. If you want to see more, check this link below.

http://www.astahost.com/info.php/free-graphic-design-program-could-equal-photoshop_t11188.html

They list some freeware programs you can use since this person asked for a program "similar to Photoshop" and the such.

Hope that helps you guys here, and in the future.

It tends to spaz out on me and eats my files. DX So I try to avoid it, plus, it kinda bugs me. :/

The site itself should be safe as this program is one of the most popular free graphics programs. ^_^

I think it's better to not use Fan Art.

Official art should be fine in my opinion since we're a fan site of the company that created it itself, but using fan art from individual fans without their permission may have mixed feelings. If you want to use the fan ones already on Harvest Dreams, just ask those people if you're allowed to use them. =)

Here's a huge collection of official art, provided by an old site called HM Eternity that is now "inactive and retired" ^_^

http://www.hmeternity.net/art_archives/

In HM Eternity, he or she writes "Are you an HM Webmaster?
I have been collection Harvest Moon official art for a few years now and have aquired quite an extensive collection. Now that HME is off the air, you can download several rare Harvest Moon files"


How kind, it saves me/us the trouble of searching.

You might want to use them ALL, to make the perfect banner. I guess all a banner needs is the 'harvest dreams' logo and the harvest moon chracters, but with a little bit of spring sensation.

P.S: what's a baboo pad?

Reminder that the submissions end on March 26th 2009. I will post the banners on the 27th. For most of you, if you haven't "shrunk" the size to the required size, do it soon and resubmit your work to me through PM!

It's now the end of March 26th 09. I will give an extra day (end of March 27th) for people to...

1.)Resubmit their banner with the smaller size (i'll be nice, such as if your banner is only a little over the maximum size, then I'll shrink it a little bit more fo you).
2.)Submit a banner even if they didn't submit one before the due date.
