Signature banners for newbies only!
Hi, new members! Welcome to ZU and to Graphics Design (GD for short)! We're excited to have you here. Hopefully, by now you've read the Newbie Guide over in Newbie Central; that means you've read the section about signatures and avatars! When it comes to those, GD is the best place to get one made for you, and this would be the thread to ask for one, since you just joined.
The Newbie Sig Shop is specifically for newbies--if you've been here longer than two weeks, you can't request here, but you can request a signature banner from one of the active shopkeepers here in this board.
We've got a pretty easy system of requesting so that you don't have to be bogged down by that while you're still trying to find your way around:
- Tell us what you want! Characters, themes, buildings, real people, inanimate objects, whatever you want--it's all fair game. If it's something obscure, help us find it by telling us something like what game it's from, or what country it's in, or even providing an image if you can.
NOTE: We cannot do any custom artwork, meaning if it's something very elaborate, I'll just find something else to use instead.
- General size! Big, small, medium, mid-sized, huge, really tiny--any word used to describe size works for this part!
- Avatar? Do you want an avatar to match your banner? Just let us know when you request!
Then, proceed to post all of that in this thread.
Now, in order to ensure that you get the best banner possible, we do have a few small guidelines:
- Generally try to avoid animated pictures (GIF or APNG)! They can be hard to work with.
- If at all possible, limit yourself to one character, building, or whatever! That will help your banner turn out better.
- If your request is obviously extensive (again, no custom artwork can be made), an example could be helpful! Don't worry about including it unless we ask you for it, okay?
Now that you know what you need to include when you ask for a signature, let's see if we can't help you put together an adequate one! Here's an example of a bad request and a good request:
gimme a pic of the can of sprite i drank in 1987 and make it sorta big, but not rly that big, just kinda big. b sure 2 make it as cool as possible, thx.
I'd like a signature featuring Goku from the Dragon Ball series. I'd like it to be of medium size. If you can use the color green as much as possible, that'd be nice, too. Thanks!
Currently, the graphic artists at your service are:
Lastly, don't be afraid to ask us questions! If there's something you don't understand, or you can't decide what you want, we'll help you get all that sorted out. It's why we're here!

- Nobody else :c
If you're interested in being an artist for this shop, PM Caleb, or either the other creativity mods, Holden or Vynrah.
Have fun here on ZU, and happy requesting!
