Now that school has resumed, it's time to find your peers and settle into the groups you associate with.
Theme: Using ONLY magic art, make a banner and an avatar showcasing and highlighting a particular clique commonly associated with High school and college. The list is not definitive, but examples would be geek, emo, preps, punks, jocks, thugs, drama, etc..
If you need to use a small image of non-magic art to express the group, go for it, but be subtle. This would include posters, t-shirts, brand logos, etc..
Medium: 500 x 150 (or smaller) banner and an avatar
Huh, wait, so the maximum banner size is actually bigger than usual?
And can we use non-magic art to showcase the subculture? I mean, so it's not the main focus of the banner, but a way to express the theme. Like, I dunno, Star Trek posters on Izzet Guildmage's background or something...
That is a good question, Singer. I really don't want to allow it, but if it is absolutely needed, then go for it. just make it subtle. Granted, you could use a brush tool, draw it yourself, or use a magic art to simulate this.
EDIT - ok it is allowed and I edited the first post. Logos, band t-shirts, posters, etc are allowed if it helps establish the theme.
Image hosting sites like photobucket or image shack work. You can always attach it to your post also. The rules and tutorials on this site, will help with that, and more than likely will give you the filesize limits.
Magic artwork does not need a source, if it is something like a sketch or alternative art not on a card yet, then it wouldn't hurt to post the link.
Glad to see new faces, can't wait to see some entries.
