So these are my entries for my first House Cup competition as part of hat_sorting. Part of the competition was to do things relating to Hogwarts founders, including fic or graphics, and since writing is not my forte I decided to make icons and banners. Since there haven't been any actors playing the founders, those of us making graphics have had to get creative. It's been interesting to see who people have chosen so far. I chose Brad Pitt as Godric Gryffindor, Drew Barrymore as Helga Hufflepuff, Jennifer Connelly as Rowena Ravenclaw, and Ioan Gruffudd as Salazar Slytherin. This is my first time really making banners so please give me feedback. I need to work on honing my graphics skills since now I'm a Chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch Team. (For those of you wondering how the heck one plays Quidditch over the internet and what the frak that has to do with graphcis, take a look at the rules of the game.) So please, please, please let me know what you think. I'm a feedback whore. Banners are under the cut because some of them are pretty big. Don't say you weren't warned. :)

Hey, so, if you're my friend and you like Harry Potter you should totally go get sorted at hat_sorting! It's fun! Just ask faithchan, she's being sorted as we speak. :D And don't forget to tell them I sent you! Later, skaterz.

I love the Slytherin stuff, naturally, and I really like the second Ravenclaw banner with all the text stuff though still not so yay about Jennifer Connelly. :-P

She's the only one where people haven't specifically said something about. People are especially liking my choices for the others. Rowena was a hard pick.

Oooo, they're way nifty-cool. All the people you chose are really great; though I especially think Drew Barrymore as Helga is a real winner.

At last check, I have 12 votes for Ravenclaw and 12 for Hufflepuff (and 1 for Gryffindor...). It can't get much closer than that!! I can't even make up my mind which one I'd rather end up in anymore! You might need to mak me a Ravenpuff icon, as this is all entirely your fault. :)

Hehe! Thanks!

Mine was down to the wire with Hufflepuff and Gryffindor. I will totally make you a sigtag once you get sorted. :D

Congrats, Ravenclaw! :) What would you like on your sigtag, m'dear?

Dude, this all looks way too difficult for me. But points to you for being all motivated and such (and for the lovely graphics).
Jun. 16th, 2007 03:06 pm (UTC)
Thanks. :)

Very colorful! I like colorful. Good job with colors.
Jun. 16th, 2007 03:10 pm (UTC)
Hehehe thanks. :) I like colors, too.
Jun. 16th, 2007 10:13 am (UTC)
Oooh, I love your work. Very cool!
And I am in love with Godric Gryffindor. *lol*
I especially like your choice for Helga, even though I always thought that Helga Hufflepuff would be round. But Drew as Helga is awesome!
Jun. 16th, 2007 03:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :D

Brad Pitt = yummy.

I'm getting a lot of that about Helga. :) Glad I chose Drew... I was thinking someone rounder first but then I stumbled upon Drew and was glad I did. It's definitely gotta be her cutesy earlier days. She's a little too svelte these days for Helga I think.
