I am donating several brand new out of the box autoscales for a series of contests that I will be sponsoring.

I would liek to start off by sponsoring a wallpaper contest as i know there was interest in seeing one of these.

Mini-Z will have to choose which autoscale to award as i already boxed and mailed them to him without taking pictures :rolleyes:

Subject:
create a wall paper for any one of the TinyRC, Inc. websites. this gives you ample choice. anything from tinyrc.com and epoch1-43.com all the way up to yourmicro.com and half eight.com. the wallpaper should incorporate the sites logo in some manner.

here is the offical listing:
Tiny RC, Inc.
http://shop.tinyrc.com
http://tinyrc.com
http://mini-zracer.com
http://yourmicro.com
http://halfEIGHT.com
http://epoch1-43.com

Size: 800x600 and/or 1024x768. it would be nice to have both.

Where:
Arch2B's Wallpaper Contest Gallery (http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/showgallery.php?cat=963)

Prize:
new opened autoscale (tbd). we will update this when Mini-Z receives them and chooses an appropriate autoscale from the choices.

wait, so can i make it say "Mini-Z Racer" at the top, only? and the website and maybe a logo?

or do i need all of those websites? i can make you the baddest wallpaper :)

and, whats a autoscale? like a mini-z?!? that would be awsome

so long as you incorporate the site title an or logo it's all up to you. you need only pick one site but if you can get them all in an awsome wallpaper, more props to you :)

autoscale = mini-z body. this equates to about a $30-35 prize.

Second Entry
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e100/Roketmini/zracerwalpaper2copy1.jpg

Both are 800X600ish, they aren't uploading to photobucket in 1024X800.

ChrisJuliano12
2006.12.08, 09:43 PM
1024x768 is standard, 1024x800 might be your problem

arch2b
2006.12.08, 09:47 PM
just to clarify, you don't have to include all the site logo's, just the one or ones you would like to use.

Roketmini
2006.12.09, 10:08 AM
Oops...Oh well I think my wallpapers will work.

@arch, I wanted to use all the logos :D

arch2b
2006.12.14, 06:01 PM
time is running out guys. i guess that means the voting will be easier for the few that submitted wallpapers :rolleyes:

ChrisJuliano12
2006.12.14, 06:20 PM
Cool, i think ill throw in 1 more

Whens the last date? Any templates of logos available?

1st of January, I believe, was what arch posted.

I'm working on one whenever I find the time too, but I had to draw the mini-zracer logo from scratch. The font 'Impact' matched the MINI RACER .COM parts of the logo best, but you gotta trace the Z by hand, it looks like. e-mail me via the boards if that's the logo you're looking for.

ChrisJuliano12
2006.12.14, 09:11 PM
or you can just screen shot the forum name, then you can use photoshop to render it (1 button if you know how to render good)

:)

It's difficult to make the logo bigger though.

Anyhow, here's my submission.

arch2b
2006.12.15, 05:33 PM
you can attach them here or email them to me as alternatives. i will have to ensure they are all in the gallery BEFORE voting begins hoever.

Fish
2006.12.19, 02:51 PM
Got my first one submitted. It looks a little off when the image size is changed and stuff though. I can provide any other sizes (1600x1200, etc.) if needed.

I've got a few more ideas, but finding time to get them on the screen looking good is the hard part.

marc
2006.12.26, 04:31 PM
Now that second one is cool! I'd vote for that one. Sorry, that was for ChrisJuliano's second photo in his submission.

2007.01.02, 03:38 PM

arch2b
2007.01.02, 08:00 PM

i thoguth about that gallery ranking but it's not easy to check them all where as this is about as easy as it gets for reading the results anyway

ChrisJuliano12
2007.01.02, 08:03 PM

arch2b
