The knights of Vangaard Banner Contest!

Hello all. I'm looking for a colorful banner for my new RPG The knights of Vangaard.

Since this is a communtity wiki what has regulars of it's own, I'm going to hold a poll where everyone can vote to say which they like best, but I will be the final say on which is chosen.

The winning banner will be the wiki's main banner. However if I like more then one, I shall use them in the individual 'rooms' of the wiki.
The banner's should not be larger then 500x180 pixels. Nor should they be smaller then 400x100.

I'm looking for a few banners for the differant rooms to really give a great medival 'mood' to them.

The main page The knights of Vangaard should be with the words:
"The Knights of Vangaard:
Truth, Justice and Honor!"

The Vangaard Castle page should simply say:
"Vangaard Castle" Preferably if it can have a castle atop a hill, that would be great. (woods in the background... Maybe the village nestled at its feet.)

The other rooms are:
1) The tourney field.
2) The audience room.
3) Vangaard's Great Hall.
4) Vangaard's Stables.
5) Vangaards gardens.
6) The Glen of Heroes.

More will be added soon, maybe... Wow, hope you guys are up to the daunting challange...


Alright folks. I'm very sorry but the deadline of June 15th has been delayed indefinitely. I hope you all dont mind. I've just been so busy that I haven’t been around the past few months. Perhaps I'll just keep this open so people can continue contributing artwork. What do you think?


Winners get badges selected from the Official Prize Badges, because I'm lazy and dont have the time to design anything new.


Here are the Vangaard banner entries


1. As many entries per person as you like. But I'd like at least a few large and a few small banners.

2. Do not exeed the banner sizes, we want these to look nice and neat, and not over powering.

3. Please do not make it too 'busy'. If you like you can add things which are typical of a castle. I would love for it to have a classy medival look. Read the description on The knights of Vangaard if you are not familiar with the place. Maybe even go in and roleplay a bit.

4. SUBJECT MATTER: Images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only pictures that fit the current theme will be allowed.

5. Newest entries are placed at the bottom of the list with their own number, even if it's your second entry, don't put it under your first entry unless you posted them together. No matter what, new entries are at the bottom.

6.NO STEALING ART! Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN!

7. ALL IMAGES MUST BE UPLOADED TO ELFTOWN! Ask [Saffron] for wiki-privs if you don't have them already: members who follow the uploading art rules and thus are not troublemakers, will be granted these privs. See advanced help for more information about privs.
8.IMAGE USAGE: By entering into this contest, you agree to the fact that your image might be used for a business card.
You of course remain the owner of your design.

2007-01-31 [Saffron]: Hey, you copypasted rules from some official competition. That's fine, but maybe you should ask me to give out wiki-privs, because I bet [Sunrose] is too busy.

2007-01-31 [Darian Hawke]: ah! ok. Can you do that? How exactly should I put that up in the rules? "If you need wiki-privs to upload stuff, ask [Saffron]"? 

2007-02-01 [M. P. Ness]: hey darian...
got a question...
the deadline is april 25th...
but when I think of a banner...
especially for a wiki entitled the 'knights of the Vaangard',..I think about doing a piece that has the prominent characters in maybe the leader, and a few of the earliest, and usually higher-level or lieutenant type characters in it...
nothing too busy...perhaps only busts or what have you...all of em lookin noble and proud and such...
whatcha think, eh?

if acceptible, I might have to wait until there are a few more early sign-ups to even bother with starting...

2007-02-01 [Darian Hawke]: hmmm. I like the sound of that very much. There will be a whole bunch of new characters within the next few days. i'm working on processing them now. Great idea Shalon.

2007-02-02 [M. P. Ness]: yay!
I'd be delighted to work on something like that...
I already gots an idea for the layout...
with your character occupying the dominant-figure position...

2007-02-02 [Darian Hawke]: well I very much look forward to seeing a concept design.

2007-02-04 [Darian Hawke]: Ok boys and girls. please note how many more rooms there are now. ooohhhh boy is there going to be a lot of work!
Banners banners everywhere!!!!!

2007-03-24 [Sunrose]: Hmm wikiprivs should only be given by Guards, because they can see the reporthistory.
They could request them on Guards, but I do reply to these requests :) (unless my computer crashed)
But better might be to just tell them the following:
'To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.'
