The Epic Winners:

The Winner with 4 votes
Sir Edeon X

2nd Place:

3rd Place:

This challenge had quite a lot of entries but this will be the last one I am organizing! Once Ramza said Sigmaker Challenge didn't attract him anymore and I feel the same... I've tried to add some new things but I miss the old times... When lots of people participated and entries had lots of different styles...
Oh well good job guys

12-12-2007, 10:12 PM
All right then. :)

12-13-2007, 07:30 PM
yeah i'll enter! ^^

nice theme btw, well done polaris :bigsmile:

12-13-2007, 08:15 PM
I'll enter this one! :jess: And for the record, are we ever going to finish that FFVII one? If we aren't, just tell me so I can actually reveal mine.

12-14-2007, 04:42 AM
You screwed me Polaris! Haha. Bugger. I'll do my best though. No promise that I'm gonna throw something in the contest, but we'll see.

12-14-2007, 04:57 AM
Im in polaris

12-19-2007, 04:13 PM
Please remember you have 5 days left to submit your banners ^^

Good luck! :bigsmile:


12-20-2007, 05:20 PM
Well I am trying to get one around but when just ONE of the stocks you want to use is a 50MB PSD file with a resolution of nearly 4000x3000 pixels it takes a while to cut out. Another is nearly 2000 by 2000 once I trim it down to the parts I just want and I still have some other stuff I want to cut... plus animate. So err.. yeah I might not make it, but no big deal this is something that I was working on that just happened to coincide with the theme.

Edit- Forgot to mention that there are a lot of things I have to remove/touch-up/redraw on those cuts[shiny things or words that cover the characters]

12-20-2007, 05:50 PM
You have until sunday! :) You may submit your chosen ones until 23:59 of sunday;)

I just recieved 2 entries so far! :(

12-20-2007, 06:12 PM

I'll definately try. Christmas isn't really my theme, but I'll see what I can do.

:save: Selena

12-24-2007, 12:09 AM
I'll be entering mine later tonight. Might be a few late, but I'll have mine in. Hope you don't mind a late submission.

12-24-2007, 03:48 AM
Looks like my fears were right. There is no way I will make it by the deadline. If it weren't for the killer headache I gained by cutting and redrawing for hours straight I may have gotten it in by 1AM... however, my headache is to the point where I won't be able to finish the final cut[it is already partially done] until the headache goes away. Possibly tomorrow morning.

Though not making it is no big deal for me I do regret that it will lower the total number of participants[which is usually low anyways]. Well look forward for it being finished sometime tomorrow or maybe Christmas depending on how off I am on the times[looks like I get a reason to make a new post in that old thread of mine].

12-24-2007, 10:25 AM
Well I just have 5 sigs so far, so if anyone is still thinking in entering if no one will enter anymore, I'll post the sigs tomorrow (because tonight I won't be online neither tomorrow in the morning).

Yeah Shun we don't have anymore many graphic designers!:( Some are away or have problems with their programms! :( Still in Jnauary we might have new participants ^^

Come on guys if you still have the will to make smth you have a chance!:D On the other hand 5 is not bad :p

12-24-2007, 10:46 PM
:mog: Hope you don't mind me entering this challenge :choc2:

12-25-2007, 09:58 PM
Yep you were on time! Ok votes can start coming to me by pm now :D

12-25-2007, 10:43 PM
I think you have forgotten to add my work :P
I sent you PM with the sig but you were unresponsive :/

12-26-2007, 12:16 AM
I am loathe to vote since my work is represented, so here is to hoping that we will get enough votes that I am not put into position where I would feel I have to vote.

Looks like there are some good ones this time around.

I got critique I would like to give each competetor but due to the silent voting I would rather not post it up until afterwards. Of course if you want to know my critique you can just PM me for it [but for goodness sakes if you are a participent don't give away which is yours!].

12-26-2007, 10:06 AM
Well I added your work because I copy and past the link of all of them... somehow it didn't appear :( I am pretty sure I copied and paste all of them! I recieved 6 pm with 6 banners!

Anywho I edited and all of the works are there! I'll just change orders! But I recieved two votes already ^^ If you guys wanna change votes you knwo you can do it! ;)

12-26-2007, 06:09 PM
Edit- Nevermind it is showing up now!

I dunno if I am the only one, however, I cannot see the additional banner. Not in Firefox, not after I clear my cache and not even in loading Internet Explorer up from the unused depths of my harddrive.

It may just be some of the odd settings I have set up on my comp/internet but I figured I would mention it just incase others can't see it as well.

Also I have the need to congratulate whoever made number one. That has real nice edges for a Gif file.

12-27-2007, 07:07 AM
You weren't the only one, I couldn't see it as well as it was down. Although there was a server downtime at imageshack, I'm guessing the work was hosted on that server. Well, it's back up and running now :monkey:

12-27-2007, 10:58 AM
Personally, I like the sig №4, but I won't vote for it, because that vote might decide the fate of my own entry ^^

All of the sigs entered look great :)

I just noticed, excellent works guys :). I'll refrain myself of voting because I'm know which sig is of whom, and I don't want to be impartial :), anyways, good luck to everyone :).

12-30-2007, 12:21 PM
I just need three more votes people! :D So we can decide the 2nd place and 3rd one!

02-29-2008, 11:19 PM
Ok guys new challenge is up now :D

03-02-2008, 07:36 PM
I'm game for this one ... although i'm not sure i get it... do we just make an advertisement for something? and we send in our original render(s) as well when we send in our sig?... hmmm yeah but i'm game for this one no matter what...

03-02-2008, 07:56 PM
Well here is an example of a PM:

Here is my entry:

[original img]

[your entry]

It can be any image as long as you send me the original one ok? :)

03-02-2008, 08:15 PM
alright got it :)

03-07-2008, 11:19 PM
C'mon guys one week passed and no entries :( People in other foruns give just a week so come on don't be lazy you still have one week left ;)

EDIT: Wow 3 entries after this post I still need a LOT more so try to find a little time

03-17-2008, 02:42 PM
we are very lazy :cry: sorry Polaris, I'll try to get some time

Ramza Beoulve
03-17-2008, 09:44 PM
Sorry, I will not participate anymore. See you later, if you need help with the organization I'll be around.

03-17-2008, 11:30 PM
I'll add three more days! :( C'mon guys! The design forum is almost empty so I'm actually publiciting in some design foruns so we get more designers! :(

Aerith's Knight
03-20-2008, 08:33 PM
I tried.. i sucked.. I threw it away in shame xD

03-22-2008, 03:03 PM
Ok guys the entries are there now VOTE! :)

04-06-2008, 07:01 PM
Hey guys it's been a long while since I post the entries so far just two votes :( Neither publicity in other forums seems to be working to wake up it :( I just need 4 more votes guys :S It's not asking much! Regular members should also vote so i think i will randomly choose 10 members and ask them to vote!

04-06-2008, 10:44 PM
I voted. It's a shame this isn't doing so well. I guess I can't wag a finger at people who don't participate, though. :P If you remind me, I'll make a sig for the next contest.

04-07-2008, 03:17 AM
Been gravely inactive as of late, but since I managed to spot that we were short of votes I tossed mine in.

However, only 4 entries?!

04-07-2008, 11:21 AM
Yes Shun there are even days where people don't post anything here! :( IT's probably one of the less active forum, HOWEVER Me and Timster still hope it'll get like the old days!

Roto thanks a lot for the suggestion for the next theme! :) I will accept it and the next challenge will be up probably in two weeks :)

I don't know if in eoff is possible, but can we put images on a poll? Because like that the vote system will be quite easier and faster :)

Thanks to everyone who voted, I have the results now :D

Sir Edeon X
04-07-2008, 09:28 PM
I WON! :eek:

Thank you for everyone that voted and thank you to the other guys who participated. We're all winners for keeping this epic contest alive and running. :love:

04-07-2008, 10:43 PM
I don't know if in eoff is possible, but can we put images on a poll? Because like that the vote system will be quite easier and faster :)

I think an admin might be able to do it.

04-10-2008, 08:34 PM
congrats edeon :)

and yeah this forum is in desperate need of attention... i was thinking of arranging sigmaking tournament if people are interested... but as it is now it might be hard to get people who are willing to do it... and i was wondering if maybe an admin could add a custom title to the winner like maybe "EoFF GFX Master/Winner/King/Queen/whatever..."

think people will be up for it?

04-19-2008, 03:09 PM
New challenge up now :D

Sir Edeon X
04-19-2008, 04:03 PM
Wonderful theme. I didn't have the priviliege of knowing Owen, but I saw his work and I know we was a great guy. I'm up to it.

04-19-2008, 10:51 PM
Hmm... I'll give it a try, for my dear friend. I'm in.

04-19-2008, 11:04 PM
I'm participating in this one. :)

04-20-2008, 12:56 AM
Yeah, I already told you I'm doing this one! :exdee:

04-20-2008, 11:40 AM
I'll try to enter but I'm really swamped at school... although I could probably manage ONE sig so, I'm in ^^"...

05-04-2008, 08:45 PM
I just have 3 entries ;_____; I thought this one would have more entries but it has less :( I'll wait one more week but if I won't have 6 entries at least I'll have to suspend the challenge :(

05-12-2008, 10:20 PM
Considering it's been more than a week since your last post and you just PM'd me about the competition today, I'm assuming you're extending the deadline by a bit. :P How much time do I have to get a sig ready?

05-12-2008, 10:32 PM
Until satuday :D That'll make almost a month :)

05-12-2008, 10:43 PM
Alright then, no problem. I'll definitely throw my hat into the ring.

05-13-2008, 03:16 AM
Well I have given it a go here and there. However, I have been in a bit of slump lately. So I am really coming up blank. I'll keep trying though. Just a lack of inspiration thus far. And I am one of those people that rely really heavily on inspiration.

05-13-2008, 09:27 PM
I'd like to participate, but I didn't know Owen... so I'll be in next time.

05-13-2008, 09:31 PM
You don't need to know him ^^ It's just to pay a tribute to him! I don't know if there will be a next challenge, the last three were kinda slow :) Buuut EOFF always had design challenges ^^ so don't worry!

Oh I totally forgot to mention but this but if you think you're not GREEAAATTTT in banner or such that's not the important thing here. This challenge is quite different from the others :) If Owen meant smth to you, or if design means a lot to you like it did to Owen you can sign up!:)

05-13-2008, 09:45 PM
I hope there will still be another challenge. I just don't feel comfortable with participating here, the theme is kind of too 'delicate' to me. If I had known him, if I knew anything about him other than that he liked graphic design I would join, but it doesn't feel right to participate now. Maybe I'm just weird thinking that way, but I can't help it... XD
Next time, if there will be one, I'll be in for sure though.

Ramza Beoulve
05-14-2008, 02:41 AM
I knew Owen before he started doing sigs, and I don't like this idea very much. Until recently I noticed this challenge... I don't know, I don't like EoFF challenges anymore.

Anyways, I will not participate for the challenge, I will because it's a sig for my friend Owen. I'll do it for this saturday then. And this is the last one here. I hope everyone participates for Owen, not for the challenge or for beating others, but that's just me.

05-17-2008, 08:48 PM
OSNAPS I totally forgot about this. xD

Alright, I'll get right on it now then. xP

05-17-2008, 10:00 PM
Ok I already have 5 entries :hyper: I will stay wait for todays' midnight AND tomorrow evenin' the banners will be ready to vote I will pm an administrator now to see if they can put the banners on a poll :bigsmile:

06-28-2008, 10:37 AM
So erm.... how ready are you guys for a new challenge?;)

I am a ready whenever. Can't say I will participate for sure(the theme may or may not block me). However, I already have two banners I want to get done by mid-end July so I will be actually working on banners. And you know me, if I do one or two I usually do more just from the momentum.

06-28-2008, 05:49 PM
Done guys ;)

06-28-2008, 11:17 PM
Real people, alright. Shouldn't be too hard, I guess. There's enough time, too :)
