As citizens of the most Holy Empire of Koridai, we need emblems to mark our status. Emblems to go beneath our names.

Thus, a call has gone out throughout the land to find the greatest emblem makers in the Empire. The rewards shall be great, and the fame and prestige resulting from a victory, enormous. So you, fair citizen, shall you aid in our quest to create . . . THE KORIDAI BANNER?


This is a competition to see who can create the best banner for the Dorm. The banner, being, of course, the small image that goes underneath your title, which is below your avatar. You have one week!

Rules:

Banner must be around 118 pixels wide by 44 pixels tall
Image must be in gif or png format
Image must be themed to match with the dorm, so things like holy knights, fighting priests, empires, etc. Be careful when using actual religious symbols, make one up of your own, if possible.
Image can have text saying Holy Empire of Koridai, Koridai, or something similar, but such is not necessary.
There will be a reward for the member whose banner is chosen.

Get to work!

I edited the extra word into your description, Steel, so I hope you don't mind.

To be specific, the maximum is 130 x 60 pixels. Use these as your basic guidelines, but if you're off by a pixel or two it won't kill anyone. The banner for Ikana Canyon was 133 x 62 pixels, for instance. However, Hall of Heroes' banner was only 101 x 29 pixels.

No problem! I just wanted to make sure that people make a banner that best suits whatever picture they're trying to work with/create, and that they don't panic if they're off by a little bit. :D

Here's an example to get you started:

Notice the cross, which likely would have been removed and replaced with our own religious symbol.

Is using a cropped picture of chik's boobs an acceptable option?

Yup, post them in this thread. Doesn't matter where you host them-- here, Photobucket (which I personally prefer for my uploading needs), wherever is most convenient for you as long as it's reliable to not disappear quickly.

Remember that we can use a variety of themes, including being a holy empire, knights, various items from Zelda, hell-- Batman if you really want.

For instance, a few I made with the same background, because I just plain couldn't decided between which text I prefer. I used the Arbiter's Grounds by Toan's suggestion, as it's the center of our dorm and just plain badass.

Posted Image (Full name ftw, but the text is a bit tiny and thus troublesome)

Posted Image (No text=not such Halloween colors)




....and if anyone can pull off a banner of me and still make it look somewhat classy, no complaints here. XD

I like minimalism.

I have a pic that would make a MUCH better one...but it REALLY DOES have boobies. It's not like you can see anything, though, at these resolutions.

Princess Steel feels that my banner could use some work on the text. Tell me, people, what kinds of things would you like to see with the text - position, colours, blending, font, that sort of thing - to help me better submit a sample more worthy of our (kind of) leader?
