here's the new ultimate battle thread for anyone who wants to battle people, etc. etc. i want to challenge a couple people on my list, so... first battle, i'd like to challenge -Latios-. you seem like the hip new banner maker, i'd like to see how good you are in battle. ^^ the judge list for Battle 1: Anubis, Anna-chan, Pincushion, Yukito. to apply for a judge position, post here. for the next battle, anyone can challenge anyone they want. x3 Anubis has permission to post the rules for our little battle, so we'll wait till he's ready.

Anna-chan, i'll put you on the judge list as long as i can be sure you aren't biased. and knowing that you wear -Latios-'s sigs in your signature, i don't know if how much you like his banners will affect your voting. can you promise it won't?

Anna-chan
July 1st, 2005, 06:05 PM
It won't affect my voting at all, I promise =]

Then you're gonna end up with members biased towards certain people, and in turn voting for them :/

Submit your piece whenever your ready once both entrys are in the judging will begin.

okay, well, looks like we'll have 4 judges, meaning... ties are possible!
EDIT: just realized this. because animation makes resolution very hard to spare, we won't be judging by the image quality, but by the banner quality (how good the banner is, no resolution)

Ninja

I could be a 5th judge just so you don't have to worry about ties.

Sawyer
July 2nd, 2005, 01:06 PM
well... ties are fun, cause then we get to have a tie-breaker. we also might move onto the next battle, cause it seems to be taking me and -Latios- a while to post our entry... it takes a while to do animations >.<

Legendary - I like yours a lot. The fading was done very well and the timing isn't too bad, a bit on the fast side. The background is very nice too, colored nice also.

Latios - The stock photo isn't the best in the world, but I really like the background. The boarder is nicley done on the entire left side of the banner, but on the right side it looks very sloppy. The fading of the text is a nice effect too.

I'd probably give Legendary AC Magma.

But i'm not a judge, so don't count this.

Kurosaki
July 2nd, 2005, 04:41 PM
AC- As much as I like Baten Kaitos, the graphic seems pretty bland to me, and as Dilos said, the timing is a bit fast. I think some text, if only a tiny bit, would have helped the presentation of it.

Latios- Again, the timing of the text seems a bit too fast, but not as far off as the other one, though I do like the font, and the effect is great. The background is very nice also, and blends well with the image. Though you may have overused effects on the main image. ^^;;


Meh, my vote goes to -Latios- XD

Anna-chan
July 2nd, 2005, 04:50 PM
The Legendary ACManga - I really do like the banner, but like it's been said the animation is a tad too fast. I do like how the non-animated image looks (the colors are great).

-Latios- - Also a very good banner. For some reason I dun like how that image looks. =/. Love how the text looks, its a bit too fast too.

Now, this was a tough descision for me.. but I think my vote's going to The Legendary ACManga
o.o;;

MystiKal
July 2nd, 2005, 06:25 PM
Ok.

AC- Heh I thought the animation was just right the colors work great with the piece, the stock images are in great quality.

Latios- Yours was okay, the stock image doesn't fit well with the background at all. I dislike the animation on the text it just doesn't seem smooth enough.

So I'm going to have to go with AC for my vote.

Sylver
July 2nd, 2005, 09:34 PM
Meh, I lost... :( I have much to learn, give me more time and I'll beat you! xD My new aim will me beat ACManga in PS Battle! xD Congratz anyway and good luck on beating the others!

You haven't lost yet. There are 4 judges, only 3 have voted.

Im all ready to judge, but ACmanga I can't see your banner, its just a red X, I went to the image link and it still wouldn't work. So I can't really choose yet >.<

Edit:

-Latios- is just sending it to me via MSN, so i'll judge in a moment.

________


Okay Judging.

ACmanga: I like the backround and colours, but im not to sure on the stock, the first picture is good, but then the second one doesn't really match, I also don't like the fact the appearing picture is not on repeat, so its easily missed.
I think it could do with some text, but I do like it, not one of your best though, im not keen on the animation.

-Latios-: I do like the stock, although I don't like the white around the picture, the backround again is really nice, although the colours do clash alot, nice text and animations affect, really makes it that bit more better. The backround and the picture go well together, but another colour ould've been better, I also think the animation is abit to fast.

I've really thought about this,
and my vote goes to
-Latios-
I really like this banner, its one of your better ones you have created, as for ACmanga is not one of your best works.

I can't believe this... It's a tie! A TIE! *runs around the room* *hits a wall* *dies* x_X

Sawyer
July 3rd, 2005, 06:45 AM
aw, ****. a tie. well, you know what that means... or maybe not. we can leave it at a tie or we can do the tiebreaker to see who wins. your choice.
also, Amelia, both pics are on repeat, it must be a problem with the pic when you downloaded it.

Hmm at request...

For tiebreaker, rules are simple.

Sig battle

Fit everything into 100px by 50px.
File format is .gif.
Maximum of 16 colours used. Noise and transparency are allowed.
Stock required. Stock must be at least 200px by 200px in size and in at least 256 colours originally. Stock must be distinctly seen in your image. Please post your stock together with your image.
Your final work must be animated.

Edit: Before I forget... more marks are allocated for the quality of the background behind the stock image used.

=D!

Oh yeah. And, enjoy yourself.

AC- Nice .gif overall. The stock photo (that crab pokemon or whatever) isn't the best. I like how the background fits well with the entire thing. I don't see how your entry is a .gif. It's just a line moving up and down. lol, but it's a .gif just because of that.

-Latios- Very nice, except for the ending with the 'Pwnz' and the 'XD' business. Such a clich, but overall you have a very nice .gif. You resized the images nicely and everything. Should have a boarder for more of a professional look.

I give a nod to -Latios-.

Sawyer

Latios - i know i'm not a judge, but honestly... you used three layers to move them; i know you can do WAY better than that. oh, and it's over 16 colors.
Dilos Ekans - you're not a judge, and anything with an animation is a .gif... and i'm sure you don't realize how to do it; i'd like to see you do what i do.

AC, you challenged latios, so accept the critisizm you recieve by others, instead of practically flaming them (its not huge, but technically still a flame) in return. Keep your cool man. And I'm referring to the last thing you said, it was completely uncalled for. --

I can make animated .gifs easily. And where did I say I was a judge? Please enlighten me. I never said I was a judge, I said I was going to leave opinions.

Yukito - you don't fully understand my situation with -Latios-, i'm trying to stay calm, but it's kind of hard to; i've got a lot going on in my life right now and i don't have the luxury of being incredibly nice to people.

I don't care about your personal life, but at least attempt to be considerate about the feelings of others when you post. Anyone can flame and hide behind "I have a lot going on in my life right now." And I believe you, but its no excuse to be rude and inconsiderate.

Sawyer

you wouldn't know. if you were in my situation, you wouldn't have that much patience either. i'm sorry i've been a jerk, but that doesn't mean i have to be all happy and ****.
EDIT: i'm gonna request this thread closed, cause all it's doing is making me feel worse.
