I changed the who's online image to the scond death star as I felt that fits the
sites theme much better and I also written the code for a flash announcement
undsrneath the banner on the homepage which only takes to minutes to change
update the text it displays Smile

On second thought....

I dont think having two death stars in the same layout holds. Why not an imperial green logo, so that it is integrated with the rest, same size and all so that there is no styleconfusien and the colour green to symbolize its "on".

Thanks again for all the kind words, this site is getting addictive Smile

Just a quick update with the banners, were I highlighted the lettering, they go better with the forum icons.

Banner 02

What about something like this for the Online Icon???

Death Star Plans

TIG Site Banner Competition! - Page 3 Deaths10

Sorry I couldn't find a better picture!!!!

Obviousy it would just be the schematics and not the console!!! Can you make that into a GIF so it rotates???


***** Locked thread/forum needs a new icon also.... Maybe a Rebel Logo?!?!?!?

First you need to model it in 3d, were you render it going 360 degrees, and convert the file to a gif or flash file. Im not a 3d nerd, so someone else would have to do it.

All the ideas are all good and well, but I have to advice the crew behind the site, to go easy with all the ideas of the iconic features from to movie. It is just going to look crazy with all the different elements, and is going to be tirering to look at in the long run. Simple is better, and if it can be integrated well - more power to the crew of TIG Smile

I cant seem to find the right pictures. The two first banners were all-around themes, and now I have gone over to the consept banners, so I´ve thought out a couple, but the challange seems to be the right pictures

Any help is much appreciated!! Smile

Thought about it, but some with huge army buildings skills that would share there pictures for a banner - do you know any?

Would also like to make one with the emperor with two ERG gaurding him, same composition as the stormy banner.

Thanks for all the great ideas, but are there others who would like to participate in this bannerstyling?

Great work as always Claus!

Others have had an attempt at making banners but dont have the skill or knowledge to create the type of results Josh T and you have buddy.

Im currently studying Adobe Illustrator CS3 myself and hope to be able to contribute some banners once i get my head round the program.

What do program do you use Claus?

I like others have said would also love to see an imperial gunner in a banner and the ERG's guarding the Emperor sounds awesome as well!!

Also is it possible to make a vintage themed banner using Imperial Vintage figures? and Boxed Imperial Ships etc?? I can help with sonme pictures if needed Smile

This is still a work in progress, but here is my attempt with some vintage figures. If anyone that is more skilled with photoshop wants the original figure pictures just send an email to moderators@imperialgunneryforum.com and I'll send them over.

Here's another go at it. I hope you don't mind me borrowing your text and it being heavily inspired by your design Claus.
