Congrats to those that moved on in the first round...though it was an easy task this second round will be much harder. You will need to make a poster with a 2006 nfl draft pick and a NFL Player [past or present] of the same position merging them like the example below

Example
http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2006/04/tomlinsonwilliams19rm-1.jpg
made by buddwalk :)


Poster needs to be 400x600

There is No K Limit to how big these sigs can be
Animation is allowed
Must use one 2006 nfl rookie
Must use one current/past nfl player
This is just an example doesnt need to be anything like it...but its a very good idea of what we should be looking for
Deadline is Saturday, April 8th 6:00 Easternhttp://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2006/04/aprilphotoshopcomp24mp-1.jpg

I think this is a great round as it really puts you to the test and not just slapping something together. when its just a sig i seen many people turn them in the same day. I think this is gonan make them creative Juices flow.

I'm having a ton of trouble so far. It's not looking that good, plus I just flattened the image to experiment with something, and took too many steps so I can't unflatten it. I wish there was unlimited history.

Buddwalk
04-04-2006, 07:08 PM
Im taking the example that is down because I just made one...here you guys go, might give you a better idea

:lol: Even if you could, half the people wouldn't be able to see it.

I'm stumped on what to do. :confused2 The more I look at my picture, the worse its looking.

yea, forget animation, it looked real good though:mad:

darkmistress
04-05-2006, 09:56 PM
a few things you've probably already tried... did you adjust optimised settings? maybe take out some of the frames or minimise the area used for animation (don't use the whole image for each frame - if that makes sense)
