Create a New Banner for our site!
Permalink  
 

As you can see we need a new banner, winner will get a Game Of Thrones goodie as a prize. Maybe something from my ComiCon Swag Bag! Be creative, only rule is that it must be 1280 by 300 pixels. Have fun! DNA

Too bad you can't change the color of that white rose jpeg to blue . ):

What about those images at Red Bubble.com under Game of Thrones Art ?

I asume it has to be original design? (as in we have to own it). Cause if not I thought some of those images in the gallery Macha found would make pretty awesome banners (probably too heavy bandwith-wise though).

 I'm gonna report you. Too much Milk of the Poppy mixed with copious amounts of Hippocras to drink. Off to bed YvyB

 There is no question that our Blog banner should come from this----I hope  warden Donal Noye picks from here.

The Stark and Lannister armies clashing one is by far my favourite!

Something like WINTER IS COMING in a similar font/style as the wicnet site and then "GEEKS" off to the side, maybe dropped down a bit, in something like a Courier or Terminal font.

I have that font if anyone wants it, though my "O"s are simple, without that line in the middle.

I was thinking it would be cool to have a banner with the white walker from Ep.10, looking down on us or doing his battle cry (let's say far right) and in the center "Winter is coming geeks" (arranged either way). Or a banner with the wight army marching towards the Fist, because it matches the words, and geeks are an army of sorts too.
Or perhaps if we could find a shot wide enough of the Iron throne covered in snow, in the HoTU scene?

Or we could do something like this, except change the words. 

375-war-is-coming-game-of-thrones.jpg

I'd try and make it myself but I can't find a decent caption of that scene, I love how it looks.

Yes, I was going by your original dimensions of 1280 by 300...which I found odd...

Ok so we have a a House name House WIC Geeks, we havea sigil, a glassed wolf on a field of sea green, what we do not have is a motto.
I propose "If you build it Geeks will come."

Nice to see your dog Aegon, especially since we know he took an oath.
