View Full Version : AUGUST CHALLENGE: A Rose By Any Other Name

08-04-2007, 11:40 AM
The August challenge is a hybrid idea started by Koor, and of course I thought I'd spice it up a little bit by making it a bit more specific and thus increasing the competition. Its a subject very near and dear to my heart also since I kinda based the sites design on one.

Create a decorative yet functional compass rose.


Entry should be a useable compass rose with some level of transparency for placing on a map.
PNG format is preferred due to its anti-aliased transparency capability.
Bonus consideration for submitting an entry large enough for use in printable maps thus allowing anyone to use your entry.
Bonus consideration for providing additional information about your entry such as a background or citing a style reference.

Remember to follow the posting guidelines and to create your own threads for entries. PLEASE USE THE THREAD NAMING CONVENTION...

WIP posts in this forum are welcomed, use this thread to discuss the challenge itself including any questions you may have. You have one month...go!

I do not see a mechanism for voting. Since submissions are over, how does voting take place?

In time, Arcana will set up a thread with a poll on it. I think he is away at the moment so it might take a little longer this month.
