TKC Holiday Graphic Contest: "Holiday Cards"
« on: December 18, 2012, 07:53:06 PM »


Hey everyone! Welcome to the Korra Connection's first Holiday Graphic Contest. Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, or just enjoy the winter season—all seasonal and winter themes are welcome to be used in this contest! The idea for this contest is for you to design cards, such as those you give to people during the holiday season. You are more than welcome to incorporate your favorite tv shows, books, comics—anything really—as long as the holidays/winter theme is sill present. Have fun, guys!

Make sure all your cards are sized 450 x 580 px! No exceptions!




  • again—make sure your entries are 450 x 580 px. you don't want to get disqualified or have to remake yours because you missed this!
  • if you enter, you must vote (for someone other than yourself) once voting is up.
  • if you plan on entering, have your entry in by midnight forum time on the 29th.
  • feel free to contact me if you have any other questions!

Do we make the card for ourselves, the forum, a person, who?

I think its just a general holiday card of your choosing.

This sounds like fun, dunno if I'll have the time though...I'll see.

I think I'll make one and put all of the forum members on it. I'll try to have it posted by the weekend.

SAXY! This is so darn cute! Great vision here - I especially love how it seems Amon's microphone is at the bottom, there! ;D
And all the jazzy, musical elements... so you. I love it.

This is a great first time graphic! :O You gotta do more now!

Aww thanks Sel! I want to give you a yuan but I already did in the past 4 hours #awesomepeopleproblems

Do you have any recommendations for free programs to use? I used paint and it was really aggravating.

I agree Saxy!! This is so awesome. Your tree composition with the instruments is really very well done.

And I know you love band so much. This is completely YOU!  :)

Thanks! I didn't even think of the Amon microphone until Seluna mentioned it.

That I do! Try this out. It's a really great alternative to photoshop.

if you don't want to remake it--you could crop the edges off to make it 450px, or use the resize tool to change just the width to 450px.



hope that helps!

For some reason I was compelled to make a card, so here is one I made just now:



Maybe not as good as the others made here, but it was fun doing it.
