Halloween 2006 Banner Contest - Final Vote!

Welcome to the final round. The rules are simple now. 1 grand prize winner and 2 runner ups will be chosen. We promise that the three winners will all be displayed at the top of the forum. (As well as any any others that we choose.) The banner with the highest number of votes will be the grand prize winner. A moderator (Hellychan) may not win the grand prize. No single contestant may win more than once (that means ^Aya^ and Daniel E.). The poll will close on October 11 after exactly 7 days of voting. All votes made by people who registered after Sept 12 (as well as any other votes that I deem improper) will be disqualified to reduce cheating. Polls close automatically so please check the poll for information concerning when it will close in your timezone.

The grand prize is a $35 gift certificate to Amazon.com generously donated by Catgirls.

Without further ado, here are the contestants!

^Aya^ - 01


^Aya^ - 02


Daniel E. - 10


Daniel E. - 11


Daniel E. - 12


Deathkillz - 13


Green² - 20


Hellychan - 22


i0td-23


JOJOS'STAR - 30


Kiva128 - 38


mantidor - 49


Slugzilla - 78

Well, I do think that 13 nominations are appropriate for our Halloween contest. Congratulations to all our semi-finalists. I have to give a special nod to Daniel E. for being the first contestant to ever get all three of his banners into the final round. Just Wow.

I'm also very happy to see Kairin in two of these banners. I hope she gets lots and lots of votes because I like to see her smiling face. Please don't make Kairin cry!

Two of my nominations made it. I still got the touch with me.

Shame the other one was one vote short to enter. Of course I am also very happy about my 3 babies.

Awww man, all these great banners and we have to choose only one T_T...

It's so difficult to do so... gratz to Daniel E. on a splendid job of getting all 3 of his banners in the final vote.

I don't think the unrecognized characters necessarily come from anywhere. They might be original characters by the original artist - but in which case it would only be right to identify the source because technically that person has all the rights to their work, and here we are just using them :P Althoguh I remember Deathkillz's one had a source picture mentioned somewhere...

I personally voted for Slugzilla's because it had the best colour harmony and 'feel'. Also nothing really felt jarring. There's something jarring about nearly all the others... if it wasn't for Slugzilla's, I'd have voted for ^Aya^ - 01. Because it's hilarious.

Seven of my favorite banners made it to the final round! *cheers cheers* ^Aya^ 01, Daniel E. 10, Deathkillz 13, Hellychan 22, i0td 23, mantidor 49, Slugzilla 78. ^_^

I thought the nomination round was tough with only 3 votes. But now only 1 banner to vote....... The horror!!! What to do!? >_<;;

---------------------
PS: I'm really grateful there were people who tried to nominate the Monster and Tsukihime banner I made. I love those series alot. ^^

Do you guys remember the bunch of wallpapers I posted waaaay back when all of this was just starting? Those are the source pics for the following:

i0td - 23
Deatkillz - 13
Daniel E. - 10

As for my other one, I believe it was part of an image pack by Studio Clover. Maybe something can be digged from that?

It's kinda strange though; my 2 nominations, my 3 banners and 2 more with sources provided by me. I mean...... WTF!!

EDIT:

Oops, one of those actually falls into two categories.

In my vote, I'm going for simplicity and quality. Only two banners stand out on this; i0td - 23 and Daniel E. - 10. Sadly the rest look cluttered and busy either due to the inclusion of too many characters/stuff; or that foreground/characters does not... seat well with the background and overall banner.

Comparing the two, sorry Daniel E., but I'm gonna give my vote to 23. No matter how I look at it, its delightfully simple yet captures a cuteness plus a Halloween feel, and everything else just complements the foreground to make it one awesome banner.

Sorry for that rambling; so in the end I voted i0td - 23.


w00t! First time I'm actually voting for a banner I nominated!

Yay! I'm glad Kairin made it.

Oh and NoSanninWa, I wanted to reply to your final statement in the locked thread..

Quote:

I disagree. I feel that the reason you didn't score higher is that all three of your banners were VERY similar. Anyone who voted for any one of your banners had to make up his mind between the three. And none of them were different enough to justify voting for more than one of them. You'd probably have gotten 8 votes if there had been only a single banner to choose.
I just wanted to clarify that I wasn't speaking about my banners particularily. It was my fault for making 3 similar banners, you're right on that part. I was just saying that mostly, the banners that tend to win are the 'cutesy' banners rather than the 'cool' banners. Since it seems like people like cute rather than cool.

Anyways I'm just rambling now so I shall now proceed to vote.

Hellychan~ 22! GO!

EDIT: and is it just me or is my banner not showing up? (cruel fate!)

Ehm the whole banner is from Ouran ^^ The two girls are taken from the Beach episode (ep n.8), the ones scared in the fear trial in the cave

There were only 2 votes on Hellychan 22, and the other one was me. Go go Kairin! At least make top 3. ^^
