~Pokémon Black and White 2 Header and Footer Contest~
So, it's less than a month till Black and White 2's NA release and we're still stuck using the Japanese logos. D: So Eiche and I decided it's time to get us a shiny new English language header and footer. =D I know a month is a long time but graphics making isn't as popular as before so we wanted to give a long date. ^^
The header must be around 600x275.
The footer must be around 450x200.
Filesize does not matter as long as it is not completely enormous.
The header and footer must be Pokémon themed and/or feature Pokémon.
Any Pokemon or Pokemon related artwork can be used. Both Dream World and Sugimori Art are welcome. Seeing as this is Pokemon Black and White 2, try to use Pokemon more familiar to the games such as the Unova starters, Black and White Kyurem, the other Unova legendaries, Pokemon associated strongly with Unova etc.
It is required that it have the accented é/É. Any header or footer that does not include it will not be considered for judging. Please also mention both Black and White 2 in the header so no excluding one or the other.
The header does not need links in it but if you feel like you want to, they should link to some of the stickied threads or related forums. But try not to over do it as they are not required. ^^
Although it is not really required, you might want to consider putting a welcoming message in the header and a goodbye message in the footer. (:
Judging~ Judging will take place on the 5th of October giving you nearly a month. However, if this is too short, extensions will happily be made or if it drags on too long we will shorten it. Everyone will have chance to vote by posting for their favourite header and footer in the thread. If anyone has a problem with this method, just drop me or Eiche a PM and we may change it.
Links~ I know the search for artwork can be difficult so here's a few links. :3
Bulbapedia. Bulbapedia features artwork on each of their pages. This is good for getting certain pieces of artwork especially if you go to the gallery page listed under external links on a page.
pldh You'll pretty much find every last piece of art work for the games on this website from Pokemon sprites and artwork through the generations to character and item artwork or larger pieces of official art.
