To get away more from this series specification.

Like this ones :)

What about a 3 colours theme? for example: dark blue, medium blue and light blue; or black, grey and white; or red, orange and yellow...

Maybe I should do a poll to decide the next theme no?

I'm sure you can just pick one for now, and if want, you can do the poll for next month.

I don't think people will be too upset about the theme choice as long as you try to stray away from specific anime, since people may or may not like a show, or it's something wildly absurd like "Dancing Puppies with Lelouch".

Specific anime/subjects aren't very good ideas since there may be people who do not like or have not watched the particular anime and thus are at the losing end.

Some themes I've always liked from other forums:
- Imagination
- Member-based (participants are allowed to pick a member as their subject and make a sig that they feel describes the member)
- Vector
- Protagonist/Antagonist
- Pairings
- Freedom
- Emotions

I was looking through other GFX sites and found a few other themes that you might like:

-Set Stock (You give us a full stock and we make a signature from it)
-Set Render (Same as above except with just a character render)
-Elements
-Seasons
-No Render/Character
-Freestyle
-Food
-Love
-Pets/Animals
-Guns
-Colorful
-Minimalistic
-Maximum(istic?)
-Moonlight
-Mecha
-Reality only

These might be more suited for an actual GFX site but I'll throw em' in there anyway:
-C4D
-Smudging
-Pen Tool

They are all great ideas <3

Thanks guys~ I'll do a poll to decide the next challenge theme when the nominations start... that would be 10th of January :) that's enough time to vote for it :3

I thought of a few, but not sure if it's good >_>'

-Still-object
-School theme (was this mentioned?)
-Holidays:
--Halloween, Christmas, birthdays, etc
-Like Factor said, maybe genre focused, like with the horror/gore one:
--romance (kinda seems like pairings already focused on this)
--adventure
--sci-fi
--drama
-Themes:
--friendship
--drugs/alcohol
--sex - shyeah right but make it like pg-13 (another contradiction with the pairings though)
--justice vs. injustice
--family
-emotion:
--happiness
--sadness
--anger
--etc
-Story in a sig? (like something describes a character)

Yeah, that's all for now

The theme for October's Contest will be "set render"!
In THIS MAL page we can see that the most favourite character is Lelouch Lamperouge. So I'm thinking of using him as the set render... What do you guys think of it?

i think lelouch is kinda over used in sigs, i would probably choose something less over rated and something intresting as a set render

I think Lulu is perfect, because he can be shown in various aspects in the signature.

I think I agree with AniiFreakk on this one. I would like to suggest a character from bakemonogatari instead. Maybe we could get a set of different renders and have a theme voting poll like usual?

Hm, I don't see why the overuse make a problem? It's not like I am going ( or any other member ) to steal/ make same signature as someone already did.

And Lelouch has really nice renders, and HQ pictures to work with.

well if a render is over used it makes the sig boring cause most sigs are always similiar in ways, thats why a change is always nice=)

mmm... Like I said, we should let the people's voice speak for the issue. Just do a poll on some different renders.

I have to agree with this. Also there is a lot of quality renders with this character.

Bakemonogatari has great characters. Difference is there is not so much renders of them. That is a big problem.

I really dont see why I would wanna do this here on MAL. I want GFX to be related to anime, cos we are on MAL. If I wanna do something else, there is alot of other GFX sites I can join to do these themes.

sigs will only look similar if you copy someone elses style. I dont know what do you expect...doing a sig with render that no one used?
There is a reason some renders are used offen. They are high quality.

This is ok. But it would be better if we just voted on different renders of Lulu and decide on one. Cos voting on different characters and then on renders would take time, and it's already 19.

Moony usually does the voting on themes the last 10 days of the month anyways. But I'm okay with any render really. It's a non-issue for me, so Lelouch is fine too. I'm personally tired of doing Code Geass cause I've made 2 signatures and 1 profile with that theme already. But if most people want to do Lelouch, then I'd be happy with that as well.

@mal_0702

I'm not that big of fan of Code Geass, as you can see by my rating of it.
The thing is, if we would do a vote on character assuming Moony does the poll over the weekend, it would look like this:

1st voting poll on the character we want: 20.09- 30.09 (10 days)

2nd voting pole on the renders of the chosen character: 01.10. -10.10. ???

we just dont have time for that, if we go by 10 days voting logic.

Ok, Lulu is going to be the character for this month competition because we don't have time to do a character selection poll and then a render selection poll. Lulu is a good choice because he's the most favourite character on MAL, we have a large amount of material! And that goes for the High Quality and big renders. Most of the people watched code geass already and know the character well~ *I must admit it... I'm not a great fan of code geass^^''
