The BG designs of AnimationNation

Postby Charles » Fri Jun 24, 2011 1:07 am

When we went to a new format for the AN Forums a year ago, it gave us the opportunity to create art for the background of the website. Something we weren't able to do before. The only option we had was setting a solid color, that was it.

With the website itself as a canvas, both Adrian 'Skynet' Foster our webmaster, and Snakebite created some fabulous art for backgrounds and also for special purposes such as AN Night events.

So why not feature some of these BG designs and enjoy the great art Snakebite and Skynet have come up with during this time.

Let's start with what we're using now. Adrian did this a few days ago and swapped it out as our current background design.

He did a terrific job. Blew me away when I saw it.

Snakebite created this image that was used early on when we switched from the old forums to the new system.

These two BGs were created by Snakebite to honor the presence of Don Bluth as our special guest at AN Night on May 25, 2011.

Snakebite designed this BG off of Dean Yeagle's work when he was our special guest at AN Night in November, 2009.

Snakebite came up with this a couple of years ago when we designed our new logo.
