Now that I’ve launched this blog, it’s time to bring the community in on a matter of dire, mission-critical importance: I need a sweet image for the header. And you folks are just the people to help me out. If you’re interested in making a design, here are a few guidelines:
- Use fanart or sprites from awesome games (including, but not limited to, EarthBound) in your design
- If you use someone else’s artwork, you must get permission from the artist first, and you must also tell me what their name/username is so I can credit them
- Don’t use any text — just designs/images/pictures/art
- Your image must be 780 x 200 pixels
- Your image must be a .jpg or .png (no .bmp files!)
- This will be an ongoing contest, so there’s no fixed deadline (I’ll let you guys know if/when I’m no longer accepting submissions). Don’t forget to tell me your forum username when you send your image!
If you put even a minimal amount of effort into your entry (subtext: no 5-second MS Paint monstrosities), I’ll post your design in one of my updates and you’ll get a d-pad badge on the Starmen.Net Forum. If I decide to use your submission, you’ll get an upgrade to a gold d-pad badge. I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with :D
