companion cube presents our first ongoing contest: the monthly challenge!
each month, this post will contain the details of one theme & one set graphic type.
simply submit your entry adhering to the theme before the given deadline.

submitted entries will be collated for voting by the members, then from the top 3 voted entries, a winner & runner-up will be handpicked by our moderators.
the first two places will get their respective prizes from us, which will be stated at the end of each challenge.

current theme

make a banner with the theme SKY!

o1. you're encouraged to use other stocks, renders and/or textures in conjunction with the theme.
o2. since the set graphic type is a banner, make sure that your entry does not exceed 460 x 200px.
o3. do put in effort into your entry. don't just submit something that's blatantly ripped off, somebody else's work, or simply copy-pasting a stock.

deadline:
17th of March 2009

prizes:
1st place - any graphics they want from us.
2nd place - 20 icons of any subject.

Lesser than 3 colours are fine, but not more.. for yours, brown is actually counted as a colour too? Maybe desaturated the picture in the back ^^

Haha, it'll be a bit of a challenge (hence the name..monthly challenge :X), but I think in the long run it'll help you guys to explore different methods of graphics-making =x

A random tip.. if you find it difficult, it'll be good to get a stock that has minimal colours (e.g. with my banner it was mainly in blue with bits of red, yellow, orange), then use selective colouring/colour balance/gradient maps etc to get excess colours out of the way.
Another method is to put a black and white gradient map on colour/hue over your completed piece, then use a black brush to brush on the gradient map's layer mask to bring out the colours you want.
