When you say that you would prefer that the image is no bigger than 8kb, i am assuming you want the image to be that size irregardless of whether its linked to the site or not?

I cannot seem to make my image smaller than 20kb without damaging the look of the signature. When its 8 kb the image is less than 200pixels wide and 48pixels high. Because i have text it dosnt look good being that size.

I just thought i would ask this before going further.

heya SB :)

I made it according to the sig rules of Ozzu, I think it will be a good test for you to design within given limits, as this is often how it is when designing for clients with specific needs.

You might need to change your design a little :thumbsup:

I knew you were going to say that :lol:

I suppose you are right, i was just hoping it would be left as it is as its a piece of work i am kinda impressed with. Ah well, rules are rules.

Thanks Musik for clarifying that with me.

A picture I had already immediately came to mind when I saw "red" and "leaf," so i had to use it.

This is a picture I took after I replaced my shocks on my truck a few months back.
As you can see, the shocks are red and the picture also contains the leaf springs of the suspension!

Ok, after sorting out the image size i have changed it to fit into Ozzu rules. Not the best piece of work and nowhere near as good as Lucassix's work, but its an entry.

Something for some people to snigger at :?

/me slaps you around the legs a bit with a wet tea towel


NO ONE on this board is going to 'snigger' at your work :roll: now stop being negative before I start slappin a bit higher! :wink:

These comps are about having a go at creating something, no matter what level your at, the people of Ozzu are too cool to make fun of other peoples work anyway 8)

Yeah, that looks pretty cool!

It does look like its got the Maple leaf which is something that is hard to avoid when you type in "leaf" in google :lol:

Good job mholhut!!

Thanks! Seeing that I'm a police officer by profession and only dabbling in graphics and webauthoring, that's alot of compliment from you folks.

Yes, it's a maple leaf... kinda common here in New England, so I figured I'd keep it simple and easy to recognize. I was thinking of doing something a-la the Mapleleafs hockey team... kind of a sports theme, but their logo is blue and not that dynamic IMHO, so I went this route.

BTW, these competitions are a great way to think outside the box, I'll see if I can contribute to more of them as they roll up.

Thanks again for the compliments.

Mike

Make that 10% and you wouldnt be pushing it. Afterall, you did design it.

Thats a good entry Burnt Raven. You are all soo much better than i am. There are soo many good entries.

Hi folks! I am back from holiday and will get around to uploading the voting polls asap. It may take a few days to get it all sorted out as we have a number of comps ending on the one day, but we'll get there so thanks in advance for your patience :D
