This contest is for everyone to compete in, if you have either artistic or photoshop skills and will be decided very soon. Unlike our mascot contest we've actually got a schedule for its completion. Come and check out the contest here.
Anyway, that has been updated to reflect the current state of the contest. I hope that other people will notice it there, but if by some chance nobody sees the announcement on our main page, I wonder how likely a general forum announcement will be to be seen either. Anyway, I suppose I'll put one up since it can't really hurt.

There's not that fine a line between willing suspension of disbelief and something just being stupid.

Wow, SaiyaGina is so totally winning! as I counted it, 12 votes so far.

And I think I see what you did there in the first post, NoSanninWa!

Would I be right in guessing that almost all of the banners hosted on are the modified ones?


25 - kira_lacusXX

It was a close fight between 24 and 25... but I decided 25 was better without the pink streaks

49 - SaiyaGina

I don't know why I'm practically the only one voting this... maybe I have bizarre taste... but I can't stress how much I love the colour graduation. I would have voted 47... but EVERYONE is voting 47 so I'll pitch in one pathetic vote for this Love the funky font too. Ooh.

54 - Shinndou

I always fall for the outlined-tree look... I like the colours and Deedlit (that's Deedlit, right) is always great. Plus the very mature, yet calm feeling is super-extra great! Seriously, it's a very elegently styled banner: it feels professional and pleasing.

Really really close was 59 by stjh, I love those colours but somehow the text just nudged it down, unfortunately. (...and the dang autumn leaf photoshop brush, I know it's nobody's fault, I'm just biased here!) (Speaking about biases, I suppose it's also cos I largely dislike CLAMP.)

Anything with character designs I dislike are immediately out (that's you, Aruruu and Misuzu! Shana would have been close but that colour gradiation was just too attractive. Anyway one of the few things I've liked about Noizi Ito's drawings is the colour, and the colour here goes well). Yay for stupid bias. And also anything with a cheapo use of that Photoshop brush just to qualify as "autumn".
Thanks for the fish

I guess including both the images and the writing styles, the following three are my nominations (in terms of being the closest match for animesuki):



Slugzilla - 56

I hope for the winners, the writing styles (of "animesuki") are re-evaluated to select the most appropriate one.

Man, all these banners are too damn happy...I got glee-overload just looking at them, sheeesh...I guess elf//demon ears are in fashion this year too, although I don't know why ...

Anyways my pic-picks:

Hellychan 19 (Gotta go with the wings and darkness^^)

SaiyaGina 49 (Love the fonts, overall color scheme, and the quaintness of the imagery)

Green² 16 (Simple, yet abstract and attention grabbing)

Somehow I'll be shocked if SaiyaGina's 49 doesn't make it as one chosen..And once again, What is up with all the elf-ears?? This couldn't have been planned...There were a couple different ones I would have liked if it wasn't for those long ears,...but I suck at banners so I'll STHU now...

Gooooood Luck everyone....
Fly since ...

My three choices--so many lovely ones, but these stuck out to me most:

I still find it kind of funny some people still don't know that Kairin is the new mascot. There's been wallpapers (well only 1 so far but the 2nd is coming soon), avatars, banners, announcements on the main page, announcements in the forums. I guess some people are naturals at dodging information.

So just to recap here folks, the elf girl with the long ears and the red eyes is Kairin, the new Animesuki mascot.

That's a thread where you can catch some Kairin art from myself and other forum members (who are quite good at drawing if I may add).

So yeah, hopefully that clears everything up.

***Note to NSW ... This is not an nomination of mine ...yet***

...So many good banners!

@ lommm

Correct, and from same animation series too. This just has it that the hand to this pic is just going above and to the side of the shoulder... ...kind of going for an character action there.
