Team SPECTRA presents...
Symbianize Signature of the Week Contest No. 23
Hello! Once again, Symbianize's official graphic group, SPECTRA, brings to you another edition of the SOTW or Signature of the Week Contest.
What is Signature of the Week Contest?
For those of you who don't know, SOTW or Signature of the Week Contest is a weekly graphic design contest. This contest is made for those who want to enhance their graphic skills, have fun, and win.
It is based on making a certain signature image with a specific theme based on the theme decided by the weekly contest host. The winner is then decided by a voting amongst members of the Forum.
This week's theme is Skulls. Make your signature based on the theme
EXAMPLE DEVIATION FOR THE THEME
The signature you will make must follow the guidelines we have set. Here are the guidelines:
- The signature must not be larger than 400 by 150 pixels.
- The signature must not be bigger than 65.0 KB.
- The signature must abide by the Symbianize Forum Guidelines.
- The signature must abide by the theme set by the contest host, and must contain any required elements (text, brush, render, stock, etc.)
- The signature must not be premade (i.e., done before the beginning of the SOTW. Alam namin kung alin ang mga premades dyan )
- All stocks, renders, brushes added to the main stock provided by the host must be posted or linked in the post. If you use many stock you must include them.
- For Microsoft Paint users, screenshots are required to be provided and placed within a ZIP file or a RAR file and included/attached in the post. To get screenshots on your work, click the "PrtScr" button on your keyboard, open a new Microsoft Paint document, click CTRL+V to paste the screenshot, and save it as a .JPG file to reduce byte size. The screenshot must also include the whole screen (start button, taskbar, filename title, windows menu bar, etc.). Provide as many screenshots as possible to atone for not being able to provide a .PSD file.
- The entry's .PSD file should be included in the contestant's post for inspection.

- It must have the following text: "symbianize.com", your "username", and any TEXT that has a great ASSOCIATION with the theme.
