Sig-Of-The-Week #12 - Winter *cjmcguinness Wins!*


Recommended Posts

This weeks theme, as chosen by last weeks winner Helio, is Winter.

It's time to announce the winners! So... Here are the winners: :)

1st: cjmcguinness

2nd: olav.k.m

3rd: Andrew D, david.atwell, TheVoid

(Three-way tie for third; 2 votes apiece)

Thanks to everyone for participating, and a bigger thanks to everyone who voted! We could still use some more, though - The low vote count is what leads to these multi-way ties. It's surprising that on a forum with over 5000 registered members, we can only eke out 16 total votes, but to those of you who did send in a vote, thank you. :)

On to the next one, eh? :wink:

Head over to the discussion thread and chat about ideas for the next theme. cj will be deciding the next one.

Jolly-o!

Got your favorite stuck in your brain?

Send your vote to CMD!

Include the name of the person for whom you wish to vote, and leave the tallying to me!

Winter is the time of year when you freeze your butt off! Well, at least here in the Northern Hemisphere it is. It's also the time of year when you charge your credit cards to the max buying gifts to help celebrate holidays 'n such. This week, your sig should represent what winter is to you - meaning either the weather or the holidays we celebrate this time of year. If you have any questions, or you wish to comment on an entry, then the discussion thread is where you'll want to be.

The deadline for this competition is 23:59 (11:59pm) (PST) on Sunday, December 16th.

To see the current time in PST to compare it with your local time, click here (WorldTimeServer.com).

Check the SOTW Rules!

If your entry breaks any of the rules it will be disqualified.

Here's mine. Stock images are http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:MountBlanc03.jpg and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Windbuchencom.jpg

Anyways, stock images were fed through a glow and Soften Portrait, I then used the gradient tool to cut off parts of the image, then used the brush to create snow, glowed and then blurred, then used a border of blue blurred with a pixel border of a slightly darker blue, then to end off I used a font and used Outline Object with black to make it readable.

No source images, 100% Paint.NET goodness.

Love Like Winter is a song by AFI from their album, Decemberunderground.

The script in the top and bottom is lyrics from the same song, written in a Tengwar script (One ring to rule them all...).

Oh, and I think that #AAECFF is now one of my favorite colors...

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Do not worry, Atwell. Your day will come. ;)

Anyway, felicitations, CJ! Your Snowman is really quite excellent. :)

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

@Fire_Ants: I like your winter signature a lot. I anticipate seeing more works from you in the future!

Wow, thanks to all who voted for for me; I'm flattered.

Good job everyone, I really liked olav.k.m's sig (got my vote), one of my first ideas was to try and do a snowman made of stars (like a snowman constellation).

So, without further ado let's hasten to the discussion thread and get things moving on SOTW #13 (or should it be SOTF Sig Of The Fortnight?).
