Congrats, Josef !All the entries were good.It was hard to vote
Thanks Bugzee!Finding that render was so hard.XD I wish I could show more of the render since it's so awesome.
I didn't want to do the "cliched sakura" banner so your post got me thinking.
You should participate too,I don't want to be the only entry again.>.>
I'll make a spring banner even if that mean dying!
Too bad I decided to do that with only 2 days left for the deadline haha
Hello, dead artists U.U!
Take a look at this xD
Infinite gave us some great ideas. We could count on your opinions about them o/
Btw, shame on you! Nobody tried to face Akia-san in this challenge u.u Not even you, Chefe!
Dead artists you know. <_< I got offended so I worked faster to finish my spring banner ...what a way to get motivated =.=
So yeah, I named it Spring Girl because I honestly couldn't think of a better name for it. >< I wanted to focus on the nature-side of things in the spring season. I tried to create a serene setting with some warm and peaceful colours. I like using bits and bobs from a few different images to create something unique. It doesn't work all the time but I like how it looks overall and I hope some of you do too! 8D Sometimes making a banner is similar to a puzzle. Trying to work with small designs and ideas to make it all match together in the end. =)
Looking forward to TheBoss hopefully making it three submissions all in all before the deadline! Come on guys! We can do this!
zee, far , to what extent I can change the logo? xD Cuz its ruining my banner. Damn blue and red.

Sorry I couldn't reply any sooner. Unfortunately, we aren't allowed to modify the colours of the MH logo in any form. The original red and blue colours have to be kept standard in all banners. You are allowed to add minor effects surrounding the text but no colour change I'm afraid. I don't want to remove your submission so if you have the time to amend the logo in your current banner then I'll be able to accept it. I understand what you mean by the colours clashing so maybe what you could do is make the logo (with the original colours) standout by placing something behind it (in the same position). So the most simple method would be to place a small whtish square or other shape behind the logo similar to what Akia999 has done here.
If you can then let me or Farfalla know so if need be we'll extend the contest for a few hours or so. ^^;;;
Can I at least put a back drop shadow or anything?
Funny that uploading it here destroys half of the quality, I hope you guys get the HQ ones xD

Finally,2 more entries.I'm not alone anymore..
When it comes to the mh logo issue,I usually...
1)Put the logo in the banner first then adjust the colour of background to avoid clashing with the logo colour.
2)Avoid red,blue and colours that are particularly bright and saturated for background colour.
3)Add some effect to the text to let it stand out more.Stroke and outer glow works the best.(My christmas banner)
4)Put some thing at the back of the logo.(spring banner and mh birthday banner) One of the best way to incorporate more design into your banner.
Not exactly good advices but hope it helps anyone who have trouble with the logo.
Awn, if it was for other banners, the smaller ones, I'd say you could use a white or dark logo, but since those banners like the spring one will be used as MH main banner, we gotta keep the original colors >< I'll check if, for the future, we can reconsider it.
Anyway, good job you too! I see that you managed to solve your dilemma, Chefe xD If anyone face some difficulties about it again, you can use Akia's tips^^
The others still have 12h to submit their banners (just letting you guys know xD).
Voting has now commenced for the Art Week 17-18 ~ "Spring" Banner Contest! Good luck to all three of our contestants and don't forget to cast your votes in everyone! =)
Kudos to TheBoss in managing to amend his banner in time! I'm so glad you managed to fix it! =D Be sure to consider Akia999's suggestions in regards to dealing with the MH logo for future banner contests! Really good points covered in that post! Thank you for sharing that with us, Akia!
