    Rules:

    * Unlimited number of participants
    * Only 1 entry per person
    * 1 week entry deadline (Due in Sunday at 11.59pm - any sigs applied after that will not be entered)
    * 1 week voting period (doubles as week for new entries into next contest to maintain a current SOTW)
    * Must be relevant to given topic (if not, it will not be entered)
    * Must be an original work made within the given week
    * The sig DOES NOT have to fit this forum's sig limits, it can be as big as needed


    The topic for this week is:

    [TECH]

    By tech, it is meant that either a render may be used that could go by the definition of 'tech' (we leave it up to your honor to be the judge), brushes that are tech (there are actual brush packs labeled 'tech'), or just anything that looks like 'tech' to you.

    I know it was said that no one else is supposed to post the SOTW threads except 'The Committee' (in fact, I have no clue if i'm in it or not), but I didn't want to have to wait till Tuesday or beyond to start this thing....so ya.

    Have fun and be creative GFX artists!

    It's okay, I was just about to post this anyway. And "tech" sounds like a fine, open-ended topic to me.

    Yea, I'm a fan of the topic that allow for a wide range of artist interpretation.
    That's why I'll always prefer things like "tech" or "emotion" to "basketball" or "Mario".

    Same, tis the reason for "Have fun and be creative GFX artists!", it's such a broad subject, there's no need to really limit yourself too much and suppress that creativity. :]

    *EDIT*

    Is it cool if I add this rule? Just so it prevents further confusion:

    "* The sig DOES NOT have to fit this forum's sig limits, it can be as big as needed"

    Yes, actually. It would. :]

    Too bad you have to make an entirely new one from scratch for each SOTW...

    lol, obviously I'd make a new one....and it seems the general community doesn't like my entry as much as I do.... My "best work ever" and I'm in fourth. I won a SOTW on a horrible one...but I digress.....very much so

    Great :]

    I like those little tech texts with the blue colors in the bg, looks really good, the render looks good too. But there's some things you might wanna change, the "Close" text should be in the left top corner, the "Tech" text is not necessary, and the overlayed border isn't good, just make it simple :)

    Hmm, yes it can a good idea, but don't make huge sigs, that would surely get newbies attentions :lol:... :scared:

    The great thing about this topic is how hard is to find a good and creative render for the sig, which I think it's great, we're going to have a new and hard competion again :)
