Hey guys,

'cause I never saw a contest in this forum, I want to start one.

The task is, to make a graphical alphabet, yeah! ;)

Every letter must be readable from A to Z. You can use lower case letters or capitals, how ever you want. (If you want, you can mix, too). Every letter must be cognizable for me.

The max. size is, let's say, 800x200 pixels, you can use Arial 30 as basic.

The format have to be *.png or *.jpg.

Everyone who want to take part post his/her image here in the forum till 01-08-2006, 23:59:59 GMT

From 08-07-2006 to 28-07-2006 I will be in holidays, so the end must be AFTER this time :D

So, you have got more than a month to draw.

If anyone dont want to show his image, 'cuase nobody should fake his/her ideas, you can join by sending me a PM, too.

I'm sorry for dont have a price, but maybe Rick can give the winner a special user text under his avatar, like "Winner of the alphabet contest '06".

@Rick: Would you do this, if there are enough members of the contest?

To win, every letter from A to Z must be cognizable and the graphics must look good. If you different "effects" for the letters, you have to use 5 different "effects" for the letters, minimum.

I think, that the jury is me and maybe Rick, if he want. Everyone else, who dont want to join the contest, can be the jury to. Or I can manage to make a forum-wide poll, about who will be the winner.

EDIT 2:

We have got 12 members, but 12 poll options arent allowed.

I decided to let 2 of six join the final and then let join 2 of the other six join it.

Between the 4, which are in the final, there will be a poll again, to decide the first, the second and the third place!

EDIT 3:

Ok, now the poll for the second six people will start.

'Cause Alex G and batfinger have got the same number of votings, I change the rules, and six people will join the final.

And now: Vote your second six favorites!

Good luck to all of the mebers

An Alphabet contest aye....

The only thing, is that we are limited with the text in paint.net....

And yes I belive a public poll should decide the winner.

Designing from A to Z?! that's 26 letters... it's "so easy" *sarcasm*

and i'm not the best paint.net designer... maybe CMD will enter the contest.

EDIT: I forgot to say it's a good idea.

What do you mean, sorry, I dont understand :oops:

I think to, that the best way to decide the winner is a public poll.

@trickman, dont be scared.

You havent to design every letter, only one design would be enough. :D

Btw, you have got more than one month, so buy many bottles of coke and let your reallife alone, for a month. ;) *irony*

Without joking:

It isnt soo hard, come on guy!

@trickman, dont scare the **** out of you, man ;)

I think we aren't allowed to say that...

But it's hard to text draw! PdN hasn't got many text effects, y' know...

Nice, that you are interested.

@Gadfly Jr: not bad, I enjoy it.

@pika2: Maybe it looks better with a background, but its nice, too.

@Picc84:

nice! looks... Professional

What do you meant by this??

@trickman, It's quite cooler now, but the background is already missing and I think, it's to huge.

Good Luck to all of you

Alright... I'll give it a shot.

One question. though:

Are we limited to straight text, all one size, all in a line? Your directions indicate upper and lowercase, but not font size or position. I was envisioning a text-on-path sorta thing with differently sized letters... And so on.

I'm certainly interested, but I'll have to try to keep all my letters legible... :D
