[Entry 1] Most devious... (animated)
« on: March 19, 2010, 12:51:40 PM »
Here comes yet another update  :-X

Instead of using the (copyrighted) Blizzard material – like my competitors do – I tried to make unique look for the DarkBlizz-banner. Also I didn't go for an extensive look change for the menu etc, but it could easily be done if required.

Please check out the animated version at »HERE« (updated)

It's a ~700kb flash site, and while the loop isn't perfect yet I'm sure you'll get the idea.







(old entries:)
Ok   I wasn't entirely happy with my first try so I had to make a new one   with more "blizz" in it. So this is my primary entry for the comp:







(below is the original one)

Thanks. Those sharp edges are actually blades of katar swords, brining out the sharper edge of DB-community ;O

It looks good, but I highly recommend not using animated banners as they butcher quality.

I guess it depends how hi-fi you wanna go. With flash I could've made the quality slightly better because of its video capabilities while maintaining small file size, but I wanted to go oldschool just to be sure the file plays for all.

Do it! And don't forget to add our slogan, "Your #1 Source for Battle.net Bots" or "Making Battle.net Magic!"

Personally I prefer the latter.  ;D

I like it very much! But I think the animation it's just a bit "too fast". I think slowing it down a little bit would be more than awesome  :thumbsup:

I think this animation is great. I think it would be even better if the "tentacles" were in slow motion instead of fast paced like they are. Also if you could blend in the banner with the right portion it would make this a strong competitor.

Thanks for the crit! I just updated it with slower tentacles and made it blend better with the login panel (the panel is made in html/css for easier usage (admin-wise))

You can use the Blizzard typeface without infringing on copyright  ::)
