Continuing the competition and suggestion of several members, welcome to the third Flashkit Arena design challenge

The Flashkit Arena design challenge

The idea of the challenge is to create visually stimulating work based on a monthly theme set by the Arena moderators (myself, Aversion and Jamble). It is open to anyone who wishes to enter and the only prize is kudos and a bit of fame. It's great practice and we hope will be a little fun for those who are struggling to think of a theme for their work!

I'm sure we'll be able to get the FK Admin, JStarkey to include the winner each month in the Flashkit newsletter with a link to their work so your graphic will potentially be seen by everyone that reads the newsletter.

mad props to designmarathon (http://www.designmarathon.com) for the original idea

Here we go then:

The Rules


* 624*388 image size yep, odd size... work with it!
* no image larger than 100k filesize
* .gif's, .png's and .jpg's allowed - please respect filesizes
* images can be rotated - portrait or landscape
* they must be based on the monthly theme set by the moderators
* each game will last approximately 1 month


On to the game without further ado...

The Theme for March 2003

Since we skipped the short month of February, and now we're going full-speed into March, Submissions should be based on this theme:

How computer's have affected your life...

Yep, that's right. Via a graphic, you can detail how computers have affected your lives. Be it positive, or negative, show your skills... and remember... be civil.

Reminder: Keep it clean folks. Flashkit is a G-Rated/G13 forum!

Please post, link, or upload all entries in this thread for the time being and don't be afraid to enter as many times as you want to, there are strictly speaking no prizes so it doesn't matter if you submit one or two hundred and fifty entries, the aim of it to have a little fun, show some skills and learn a little more about how other people and yourself design within a set theme. I'll set up a separate thread for entries asap.

Also, per usual, Jamble will most likely make a page available at his site that will make viewing the images a bit easier outside of the anticipated conversation and questions posted in this thread.

Oh! And a bit of news... I'll be missing for the first couple of weeks of this contest... but when I'm back, I'll even post something too... so have a bunch of surprises waiting for me guys, ok?

:cap:

Good luck, please don't be afraid to ask questions if you're not sure about anything!

*Oh, this is open to all members and mods too!

Show your love!

*above verbiage based on Jamble's first Arena Competition announcement :)

Threw this together for fun, my skills are still quite weak hence why it isn't too visually appealing, more of a story.

It's been fun.

Im sure a few of you can relate ;)

yup, i agree with BS, but i would suggest war & peace.. i believe everyone would want to share their opinion of the conflict with a graphic message.

I think that it is interesting to see what other people's views are. It'll be a great topic for to create a social comment since war is very current and we all have strong feelings for it, but I don't know about the graphic opportunities for creating an image with that in mind, like does it have to be politically correct? etc.

If it's war, then I've got something in mind for it ;) Come on mods, what do you think?

Yes as nayades said, it's a very delicate subject. But I think A war/peace themed battle would turn out quite interesting to say the least.

Lets get this thing going on time this month you mods:p :)

I agree this might be a good topic, I'd suggest that we're talking about a principles here not politics. You're working to a theme and as such war or peace could be down to a "war" between strong colours in your design not just images of tanks etc :)

A few people seem keen on it so we could go with it and see what people can come up with, hopefully the turnout this month will be better :)

I agree with Blue..

In Deviant Art, someone made an image with this war and propaganda theme and I just ... well, let's just say that I didn't LIKE the deviation :mad:

Jamble, I don't really get you... but anyway, I have this thing in mind for it...

SaintB what jamble is trying to say, is lets not make this politcal.
