Signature of the Month (May 2014)

Posted 04 May 2014 - 09:26 PM

Time for another signature of the month competition!

Last month's winner was Ntwiles, for this signature in the 'Scenes from Literature' - themed contest:

Posted Image

Ntwiles deliberated on a topic and decided:

-- Famous movie quotes --

He elected to not clarify the topic, and may do so here if he wishes. Maybe it's a pretty background with a quote slapped on it.. maybe a picture or drawing that evokes a famous movie quote.. like a pair of ruby slippers or the large caliber handgun from Dirty Harry.

Feel free to discuss what you may try your hand at. It's all up to you!

Rules and important info:
  • The contest will run until the 28th of May after which voting will begin.
  • Signatures must not exceed 400x100px
  • They must contain your username.
  • When finished post the signature image on this thread.



Winners will receive this shiny userbar to display in all its 24 carat glory and the right to pick next month's theme.

Posted Image

Good luck!


Oh, and if you are thinking about participating it wouldn't hurt to drop a note here so I can harry those "down to the last minute" sort of folk when the deadline looms!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 1

Eh.. I am kicking around the idea of drawing a grocery cart full of booze and a back drop of vegas.. you know.. evoking the quote
"Maybe you shouldn't drink so much.

Maybe I shouldn't breathe so much Terri."

from Leaving Las Vegas.

I was up in the air between the one I just posted and:

"We can't stop here, this is bat country!"

"37? At the same time?!"

and

"I felt like putting a bullet between the eyes of every Panda that wouldn't screw to save its species."

If anyone wants clarification, my original view was displaying the quote in text, along with a visual representation of the scene. Feel free to get creative if you have any other ideas though!

Thing I now want clarification on is

"I felt like putting a bullet between the eyes of every Panda that wouldn't screw to save its species."

I wanted to use this quote:

"It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."
"Hit it."

But I really couldn't come up with a good way of fitting that into 400x100 pixels, so I had to choose another quote. Now I have...

See, now that is really good, but I can't really spare even the 5 minutes it takes me to put together my crappy entries here at work, and at home I don't have the software to create any entry, apart from maybe in Paint.

Besides Modi, I think that's a little too big to be used as an entry :)
