Let the war begin...

Hello, and welcome to Banner Wars cycle 2! This cycle some things have changed, we have:

- New Judges
- New Layout
- New Banner
- New Competitors
- New Tasks

As you can see, we've stepped it up a notch. We're ready for this to begin, so... are you??
*All the competitors that signed up have been accepted and they will start  immediately.
 First of all, let's talk about all the new things!
We have new judges, which are: Yasmin (yazzieblue) and Lana (forevergorgeous) both of which are AMAZING graphic designers, and we're really lucky to have them here!
As you can see, we have a new banner,which was made by yours truly, with the help of Ciaraleanne, which  made her hair (she's the blonde) and I got the shape of my body (on the right) from Alice. And right now, the competition beings.


This is your first task, and a few will be eliminated, so try to do your best to be on top.
You will be asked to make a graphic, related to Christmas, since we are in the holiday season. The graphic can be anything you want, but remember, related to Christmas. It's up to you, and your creativity. We wish you luck!

The due date of this challenge will be:  The 24th, Christmas Eve.
Good luck!

Ps. If in need of any help, Alice (hunnigall) has made a tutorial on shading and might work for you, if you haven't seen it yet, go to this blog and you can use that techinique.

If you have any questions contact me (conii987) or Ciara (ciaraleanne)



  1. Awesome, I'm nearly done mine I need to do the shading though!
