Heath Memorial Image for BetterMost
« on: March 09, 2008, 10:59:08 pm »
I will be preparing to integrate the Heath forum into our regular categories of forums later this month (it will remain as-is, as a standalone forum indefinitely).  As we prepare to adopt our spring colors, I will be adding a permanent small memorial banner for Heath Ledger next to the BetterMost Beans found at the bottom of every forum page.  I'd like to offer the opportunity for our artists to help design this small permanent banner memorial.  If we can get a few entries, we can ask forum members to choose their favorite and we'll adopt one as we move into our spring color scheme.

Some technical specs:

Banner size should be approximately: 200 (width) x 80 (height) (same height as the beans image, slightly shorter)
Any format is fine (GIF, JPG, etc.)
Try to use a more neutral color scheme, avoiding any extremely bright or potentially clashing colors

You can attach works in progress and submissions to this thread.  Thanks!

Nice idea, Phillip. I'm not an artist, but I'm looking forward to seeing what people come up with!

This is a great idea. Thank you Phillip  :-*

Well done, Milli.  I'd have a hard time choosing a favorite, though.  :)

Yeah. It is hard to choose a favorite. They are all nice, Milli.

I love the one with the candle, but one of my favorite pictures of Heath -- the one with the hat -- is in the second picture, and I love it too!

Thanks for putting those together, Milli - beautiful work as always! The more I look at them, the harder it is to choose!

Hey Phillip -

There are so many really good offerings here. Why can't they all be used in a rotation kinda manner. Changing em once a week, or twice a month?

Milli, special request here ...

You gonna make (at least) one collage where Heath is portraying Ennis? I think I'd like that ...
