fairest1 had a spectacular idea on how to help convey the idea of our community out there to the masses: banners. I love the idea and am rather good with photoshop so I can make banners and icons or whatnot rather easily however... I can barely draw stick figures. :|

So... I'd like to run a little contest so to say. If you have artistic ability and a little spare time within the next week please do us this favor and draw an image for our banner! It can be funny, serious, dramatic, whatever you feel best suits the image you have in your head. The theme should be makeovers so you can have any sort of image which combines a makeover and a fic. (An example I can think of would be like a person holding a paper in their hands, the fic, who is surrounded by staff holding either building tools or makeup... something like that maybe?) I'm sure that whatever you all come up with will be good and if we have more than one there will be a vote as to which we will use as our official image!

Psst! No underscore.

Glad you like the idea!

*winces* I always do that. Friendly backspace key to the rescue!

I do! I just... couldn't figure out how to do one with sucky images that I found in google. XD

Yeah. Basic concept is all I gave, so I'm not arguing. . . and Google is not the greatest for stuff like this.

Have you tried Getty?

*digs for samples*

This might work. Possibly this, this, this or this.

Nope. Didn't really know/think about that sort of place.

All those links give me errors, though. :|

Maybe if nobody gives us anything to work with I'll try stock images?

*eyes links* They work for me. They are EVIL. But Getty is stock images; they're popular with this sort of thing. Can you get to Getty at all? Just type in gettyimages.com . . . I searched for stuff like 'author' and 'writing' to get those ones.

Hmm. . .

mm.. see I think those only vaguely show our concept but I'll keep it in mind. maybe I'll make multiple kinds... *ponders*

Oh, I'd love to enter, but I'm being buried under other art trades, so I'll just sit back and see how others do, sadly ;-; Good luck to everyone who enters! It seems like a very nice idea. ^^

Inspiration works in funny ways. This is a text-only banner (HAH!) because while I can draw, I don't think I can do anything relevant for the community except make banners assembled from spare parts. So here you go:
