Gara its seriously pretty easy actually to make its the creative process behind it that is the hardest.

hey tox i was wondering how we came to use the 480x620 proportions i only bring this up because i find its not the same proportions that is usually used for posters

http://ufcstore.resultspage.com/sear...7&p=Q&w=poster

every one of the ufc official posters is 27in. x 39in. which would be like 6.75in. x 9.7in. if you wanna make it smaller but the proportions are the important thing... i only bring it up cuz i find its tough to fit some stuff on it cuz the length isnt quite long enough ...but we dont have to change it for this contest cuz i dont wanna make anyone have to re-do theirs but i was hoping in the future for poster contests we could maybe use the official proprtions? what does everyone think? Just an idea.
