I'm sure a lot of you might have seen this coming! We're very excited to announce the Dynasty Warriors 9 Theme Contest.
Just as in the case with previous theme contests, everyone, members and staff alike, will have the option to submit a custom theme. At the end of the deadline, a Voting Thread will be opened for the public to determine the winning theme!
Renders for all Dynasty Warriors characters can be found in the Render Logbook and you are free to use concept art, official character art from the artbook, and screenshots of the characters if you wish. Artwork for the characters can be found on Koei Wiki.
Only one entry per participant is allowed. All entries must be submitted to myself or Mr.Honda via PM with "Dynasty Warriors 9 Theme Submission" as the message title. Any questions, comments, suggestions and concerns may be made in this thread.
KW Forum Logo:
Wallpaper Dimensions: 1600x942 pixels
Banner Dimensions: 768x165 pixels
I'm sure you've all noticed that it's a different logo! This is a brand new logo we well henceforth be using in all our future themes. Credit goes to DMRevolution for creating it. You may resize the logo and change its color/size/transparency to match your theme if you wish!
***You may color the center portion either beige or black in order to fit with the current theme templates***
Color for beige theme: #e6d4a6
Color for black theme: #121211
As a bonus/optional sub-entry, interested artists have the option of submitting their DW9 theme banner only. for the Koei Warriors: Conquerors site! As I'm sure is common knowledge, KW: Conquerors is now our official website. The winning banner for KW:C will be chosen by staff among contestants who do not end up winning 1st place in the DW9 theme contest. So if your theme is not voted to be the top favorite among the submissions, you still have a shot at having at least part of your work featured on one of the boards! This is a great way to have your art get exposure and to jointly promote both of our boards.

- You will simply have to submit your DW9 banner in two different sizes- one for Koei Warriors forum and the other for KW Conquerors. If you are interested in entering your banner for both boards, I suggest first using KW:C dimensions, and then resizing the canvas to fit KW proportions. You may also make a separate DW9 banner to better fit the style of the KW:C forum.Required dimensions for the KW:C Banners are as follows:
The logo and tagline are obviously different for KW:C- they must match the style of the following example:
Tag line Font: Biondi, 24 pt.
Once again, submitting your banner for KW:C is COMPLETELY optional and will not affect your standing in the DW:9 Theme Contest or change how your banner is judged.
